If you happen to be wondering how my weekend is going, it is in the company of a person with no inner monologue.

The brewery turned out to be over-hyped and overcrowded.

The distillery is much quieter and the patrons, sophisticated.

In just a few hours, the temperature outside me will be hotter than the temperature inside me :blobderpy:

This would likely result in me talking mostly to myself though.

Now wondering whether to set up my own XMPP server and require everyone who wants to chat to me to use it :blob_gnikniht:

No, Telegram, I would not like to upload my entire contact book to your "heavily encrypted servers"

I am seriously on...

Telegram, whatsapp, signal, xmpp, wire, skype, matrix, Tox, Jami, Steam, Battle net, Discord

Twitter, Mastodon, Reddit, keybase

but since I decided that Facebook was not an option, apparently I am uncontactable by certain people

Now at [generic chain restaurant] and also the staff have t-shirts that say 'I โค๏ธ my job!' on the back which cannot in any way be true.

I don't even need to name the place but you already know what's on the menu:

๐Ÿ”ต 'gourmet' burgers
๐Ÿ”ต Steaks (from feedlot-raised, corn fed cows)
๐Ÿ”ต Generic salad straight from the fridge
๐Ÿ”ต A single seafood dish (source unknown)
๐Ÿ”ต 'Apps to share!'
๐Ÿ”ต A mountain of sugar for desert

Bonus points!
๐Ÿ”ต Drinks 'specials'
๐Ÿ”ต Bread while-u-wait
๐Ÿ”ต Edgy/Hip names for menu items

TFW your visitors want to visit [generic chain restaurant] for dinner :think_bread:

Coming soon to an Apple Maps streetview near you: me passing the slowpoke camera car on the motorway
