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.

I am genuinely grateful that it’s Friday. This has been a hell of a week.

I don't want to jinx it but it's looking like Australia has got away clean, without any national Book Week Blackface Incidents

Hello nerds (@wobin, @scarydan, @geordie, and possibly others?). What good mini storage solutions do you know of? Bought myself a dragon and a gelatinous cube today and don't really know how to best keep them safe.

@geordie @drbuttocks I want us all to reflect on the immense efforts expended over millions of human lifetimes, and thousands and thousands of years of gradual technological development that brought us to the point where this moment is not only possible, but will be completely forgotten in a year.

I'm so proud of us.

Starting now: Catholics are gathered on the Capital lawn to protest the Trump Administration’s immigration policies and to call on Congress to defund ICE, stop detaining children and reform immigration policies they’re calling “inhumane.” They’re calling this #catholicdayofaction

Just had 3/4s of a not great pizza and two great pints of beer and am about to go swim in a pool that looks over the South China Sea.

In Australia Johnnie Black retails for about $40-$50 a 750ml bottle. Hennessy XO is about four times that, and not something you drink with Coke.

Malaysia as a majority Muslim country that is a complete passenger in its relationship with alcohol is amazing. I asked for scotch and Coke. The barman asked if I wanted Johnnie black or Hennessy XO.
