For the first time since 1992 (when I was 12) I’m completely disinterested by the UK General Election.

Sunak and the Tories will lose, Labour in uninspiring, the Lib Dems weedy, Greens weak and SNP weakened, and Reform simply grim. And Brexit is the elephant none of them will touch.

As I’m still a UK citizen I will vote, but it’s with less determination than ever before.

@jon my ex-constituency - where my vote is still counted - has a good chance of voting in a Green MP - so I'm pretty excited!

@jon hah yes then I can see how it's more 'meh'

I used to get excited by big tech announcements. But now it's all just so uninteresting. Is this because I'm old? Is it because there's just SO MANY keynotes and product launches now that it's too hard to keep up? Or... has it actually become boring and mundane for others too?

Some things you only remember about an old home country when you return. In this case, the UK:

  • Toilet paper is too soft & falls apart easily.
  • Softened water makes washing soap off take ages.
  • Everything indoors is a little more moist.
  • Hiya/seeya!
  • Separate hot & cold taps.
  • Levers on toilet cisterns.

@christian lolol. I think modded cars are right up Germany's alley! Not my scene anyway... Thank you! Just got to Centerparcs with my olds 😅

@a11yMel @rachsmith woohoo, no work for me, I very rarely wear makeup! Saying that, in the US office world I may be considered unprofessional...

Also yes the 'alright?' could totally be confusing, I can see that! In Hamburg a common greeting is also 'na?' which I found totally confusing myself when I moved here. The correct response is a returned 'na?' 😆

RIP my notifications, Mastodon loves itself a comedy bell pepper 😆 :happy_pepper:

What’s your favorite bell pepper? And, no, they don’t all taste the same.

@markwyner red of course. And they make the best faces too :happy_pepper:

(thanks for the heads up @hl)

The European Parliamentary Elections are during CSS Day so I've just arranged to vote in Amsterdam (with Kiezerspas).

This is an important vote. Collectively we've got to cast a lot of votes on parties that are not extreme right, and (personal opinion) prioritise very ambituous climate policy over nonsensical anti migrant populism.

sarajw,
@sarajw@front-end.social avatar

@hdv you got me worried then, but ours is Sunday 9th so I should be back home by then!

👓 As I hugged tinyMovieStar a couple of days ago, I heard a snap. Now wearing these, at last.

@maique I love these - you look so good

sarajw,
@sarajw@front-end.social avatar

@maique if you never wear them in fear of breaking them then there's no point having them at all - hopefully it won't be too expensive if they break on you!

Wow, now I'm imagining Halt and Catchfire, except it's set in Victorian times with Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace.

Although I'd be happy with an adaptation of this:

Despite my ineligibility, I let https://www.wahl-o-mat.de help me decide who to vote for in the EU election. Glad to reveal I'm not a closet Nazi.

Screenshot of second half of the results. Second last. BSW. 43.8% Last. AfD 18.8%

@sinjut my results were very similar except with GRÜNE at the top

Oooh there's another chance coming:

Also I feel shamed as a once-physics-teacher - I didn't know or remember that the sun changed polarity every 11 years. That's cool and weird and mind blowing.

@timdnewman I haven't seen them, I turned in early that night myself!

I'm heartened by people who had amazing photos on their phone who said "couldn't see any of that with my eyes though"...

If you have a version of your resume in HTML, I’d love to see it! For learning/curiosity/inspiration.

@bw @ryanrandall ugh I'm kind of jealous of this. I'd love to do my own and once upon a time I did, but I worry now too much about privacy and stalking, I feel like it's just too much information...

...I say that, and then I use LinkedIn. Hypocrite much? I'm often confused...

This pepper has now been immortalised by @andycarolan as an emoji that I've also had printed as little stickers :happy_pepper:

@sarajw@front-end.social avatar

@robb yeah! 30ish euros for I think 135 stickers - think it must have been however many fitted onto their minimum sized sheet

@sarajw@front-end.social avatar

@lbr59 ooh good point. ?

sarajw,
@sarajw@front-end.social avatar

@mihobu @andycarolan @hryggrbyr StickerApp was good, based in Sweden but ships everywhere :) only minor complaint is that with the narrow border, the cutout was ever so slightly off-centre.
