Word of The Day
It's about using words, of course, but, while an occasional favorite or boost happens, there's little engagement.
A two-part Challenge Proposal:
A) Post a toot using the word in any way, sentence, story, analysis, rhyme...
B) Doodlers and Artists, use the word as the subject of a #SketchChallenge
Get in on the fun of words and visual imagination.
Remember to use the #WordOfTheDay hashtag, of course.
Thanks to anyone who decides to follow this account.
I have a habit of responding to all who do so, but this is a second account, and I may mess up when trying to determine who is a new follower and who is "also" following after connecting by way of my mastodon.cloud account.
It is not my intent to litter myself all over the fediverse. I will see how things go. I've made connections with several others on mastodon.art and think I'll feel at home here while NOT restricting my toots to artistic attempts. It looks like the instance won't generally mind.
Words have art in them, too.
Good luck to all of us.
Strength to the fediverse through the efforts of individuals.
Rain runs through our gutters
And drips down by the shutters,
A day to sit and watch TV
While watering the lawn for free.
Thank you for connecting.
Your Penguicon event sounds very cool.
My own time in Michigan was along the east shore of Lake Michigan.
I have passed by Detroit a few times, but except for reading about it in novels, have no direct experience that I recall.
Are you local to the Detroit area yourself?

Hint: keep at it
1 An actor in a traditional masked mime or a mummers' play.
1.1 archaic, derogatory An actor in the theatre.
Late Middle English from Old French momeur, from momer ‘act in a mime’; perhaps of Germanic origin.
*Mime, My, My*
Hank Hornsby was a new mummer
His first time on stage was this summer.
And he turned out to be a real hummer
Because he couldn't have been more silent.
Polite submission and respect.
Mid 17th century from French déférence, from déférer ‘refer’ (see defer).
Yes, I'll write you a reference.
It will be full of pretense,
Or, at best, lots of nonsense.
But in full deference,
And if you prefer,
To our boss, I'll gladly defer.

Al's internal structure is probably pretty cool. I should try a cross-section illustration, maybe.

Google is hiring me, and expecting me to move to the Bay area in a couple months to work in Mountain View
do I know anyone in/around San Francisco with opinions about where I should try to end up? where are the yarn shops? the synagogues? the game stores? how's the public transit?
