I'm Geordie. That's my name, I'm not "a geordie" because if that was my name and a thing I was it'd be really weird. Late 30s, cishet (he/him), love basketball and go to all Sydney Kings home games with my wife and 7 year old kid. I live in the North Shore are of Sydney in Australia. I love cooking, especially for my family, and I work in cloud tech. I joined Mastodon to have a more chill experience with more real people.

Today I wrote code that builds a cluster of kubernetes clusters, and also built a pimping white/green MTG deck, and also played some Coup.

New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

We are meeting with the bank this evening about a loan to buy a place and my usually well-controlled anxiety disorder is an entire thing. I just picked up one of Mr 7's toys to put it away and it made an electronic whirring noise and I nearly fainted. :\

I found all my clothes. Turned out I did a load of washing drunk and forgot about them on the weekend. They were in the drier.

when your mom makes you show her your room to prove that you've cleaned it,

Good morning fediverse. It is cool and crisp. The trains are quite fucked so I’m walking in to the office.

I am currently waiting for my wife in the lobby of her building so we can go and do one of my favourite things after work: catch up with friends. I am waiting because she is doing one of her favourite things after work: working more.

This means I have to go to the Italian guy that has the right wing radio station on and tutters about immigrants. This is the guy who runs his barber shop with his son and grandson all of whom aren’t born here.

Ok looks like I am going to my second favourite barber because my first had a chalk board out with 8 names on it.

I will another time explain what it’s like to be stood on a pier 200km from where you were expecting to be on a Good Friday morning surrounded by hornets and watch a cult eulogise your dad a year after he died. Wondering if it’s appropriate you’re double-fisting half litre cans of energy drink.
