@balrogboogie haha the Miller's Tale is one of the best! Second only to the Wife of Bath's - it's soooo lewd and was both uncomfortable and hilarious to read in HS english class... especially because the teacher's son was in my class 🤣 😅

but also I totally hadn't remembered his TW on it - good point and I'm definitely bookmarking this.

@prehensile yeah I think there were a whole bunch of them. I made a friend who was very involved in political intrigue in Cybertown?? So she got me into it and that's how I learned to type hella fast 😂

We were also weird homeschooled 13 year olds who met at a community college art class and went to Ren Faire together. It was my first introduction to The Internet outside of AIM.

Was anyone here part of Cybertown in the very early 2000s? It was basically a series of chat rooms in different parts of a digital city, and if you had a good enough connection you could load the 3D part of it, too. People could make just about any avatar ythe wanted, and some even had basic movement animations.

This looks... not dissimilar, and sooooo much more boring.

I would take this in a hot second, but I've already got a full-time gig. In a world with different outcomes, I would've been hiring this position.

So... I want an ally in there, for reasons... if any of you are available for this, and feel you could do it, I will do everything in my power to get you an advantage.

I want a townie, or a friend of the town, to be the one doing this.

Food question: 

@maloki lost portobello mushrooms. I love all other kinds but there's something about their texture and water content that is just 🤢 for me

@InternetEh hooray bike times! They can be hard to make, so if you want indoor trainer recommendations let me know. 🚴🏼‍♂️🚴🏼🚴🏼‍♀️

I’d always thought theirs a menial life, eyeless and hidden,
almost vulgar—though now, it seems, they bear a pleasure
so sublime, so decadent, I want to contribute however I can,
forgetting, a moment, my place on the menu."
