What the players don't know... is that this game of Cats and Dogs... is now for keeps!

That's right, @byttyrs , @HoneyMoon and @RussellsBarbershopQuartet

This is now a SHADOW GAME! youtube.com/watch?v=4YPyeOjmL1

Yeah sex as cool and all but have u ever Solved Mads's Word Puzzles in 4 Guesses Or Less?

I shall simply allow potential subtoots to roll off of me like water.

If someone's got beef you can tell me it directly. I don't feel that's unreasonable.

@swiff @starwall hello I love shadowy purple smoke but also sunshine/blue sky Sun Cleric/paladin nonsense, I'm willing to fill in either niche

does anybody wanna play Cats and Dogs?

it's very Wordle-like: I have a secret five-letter word with no repeating letters in mind, and players take turns guessing candidate words

I give each word a score in "cats and dogs": cats are letters that are in the secret word, but not in the right place, and dogs are letters that are in the secret word and in that exact position. but I don't tell you which letters are the cats/dogs!

if yr interested, reply to this post, and once I get a reasonable group I'll set the turn order and start play.

like they're right, I will listen nonjudgmentally to their life story and all its criminalized and stigmatized twists. but how do they know, and how do I prevent prospective employers from also knowing?

orthogonally, I worry a little bit that whatever about my ~energy~ tells people that I will listen nonjudgmentally when they talk about their substance abuse history and legal problems might be impacting my ability to appear professional in job interviews

Show thread

a woman who started a conversation with me while we were waiting for the same bus abruptly began conspiracizing to me that COVID was a manufactured disease and Satanic and I gently, but firmly pushed back and pointed out that a major reason it spread so fast in the U.S. (her motivating factor for it being unnatural/a foreign plot) was that we in the U.S. didn't habitually wear face masks when sick prior to COVID, whereas other cultures do.

I also said that we live in a connected world where diseases spread fast, that nobody needs to have manufactured a virus — our government can just intentionally neglect natural ones, and the thing that would make COVID go away is paying people to stay home for six months, but didn't quite have time in the bus ride to point out that countries which prioritize public health don't have our ongoing problem with COVID

and by the end she said "maybe you're right, that makes sense"

maybe she was just agreeing to be agreeable, but I did my best

Alright gonna log off, fall asleep to a vod or something. I don't have to be up EARLY tomorrow but I do have work in the afternoon so I should try and get rested at least, night folks
