Pinned toot

Thank you all for the well wishes with the move. It was a pain but not as bad as it could have been. New place is really nice and I'm very glad to be here. There are thee of us in this place and it feels less crowded than the last place did with only 2.

Moving house tomorrow. Will be sad to leave this place, but the new joint is really nice

did you know if you start playing dark side of the moon and the wizard of oz at the same time you can't hear either very well and it's frustrating

(not helped by tone markings being superscript numbers and Google Sheets not having a superscript or subscript options. So, not only do I have to copy/paste certain phonemes when they appear but *every* word has tone and I have to do the same for those. It's taking *forever*)

It's frustrating, though. Normally for a language it takes roughly 2 hours to do a wordlist of 255 entries. Often times it extends to close to 300 because of synonyms or words closely enough related that they need to be added.

This *one language* will likely take me 6 hours and have over 500 entries.

This Melamchi Yolmo - English dictionary is really solid but prepping word lists from it for this research project is becoming a nightmare because there are so many glosses and senses, and I don't know enough about the scope of the project to confidently cull.

The PI can deal with that part.

Right. Who was it I saw taking about how we haven't had any real cold days this winter?
We need to have a talk about you tempting fate.

:boost_ok: Bandcamp is waiving its revenue share again this Friday, so artists will get their normal cut of any sales (music and merch) plus the fee that usually goes to Bandcamp. This is a good way to help your favorite musicians survive the pandemic - especially musicians of color, LGBTQ+ musicians, and disabled musicians!

Here are all the dates Bandcamp plans to do this in 2020:
August 7, 2020
September 4, 2020
October 2, 2020

Umbrella Academy S2 spoilers 

I don't go in for romance much in my media. But Allison saying goodbye to Ray near the end of season two was very much my shit.

Give me couples unable to be together and I will eat that shit right up.

If they've just written out half the POC in this show...

Covid adjacent, mental health (+) 

Just got a random mental health check from a dude stopped at the lights. Just leant out his window and asked if I'm doing alright and not freaking out. Was very supportive when I said I'm good.

Still working, but starter got into the speaker and now it's quieter and fuzzy after clearing it out.
