This talk (by @firstname.lastname@example.org from @email@example.com) should be required viewing for anyone planning or running virtual events.
This is why @firstname.lastname@example.org and @PyConAU@twitter.com are an experience that blows events put on by three and four letter megaorgs out of the water.
I have done other things these last few days I swear. Yesterday afternoon I cleaned out all my dead houseplants, got some new ones, and potted them up.
Thanks to #LCA2022 I finally got around to making a Bookwyrm account! @email@example.com
Had to go out to get coffee beans this morning, so I had my first barista-made coffee since before the holidays, and I broke out my well-loved LCA 2019 cup in honour of LCA this weekend (and my last overseas trip). #linuxconfau
Cockroach poo and worse for books
I have done the books and scrubbed the shelves of one of the two bookcases so far. The bottom shelf was so bad. I found three silverfish also, stuff of nightmares.
Lots of books, including my three oldest and most precious (to me) now have cockroach poo stains 😭
Fortunately so far I've only found one thing eaten by the silverfish, and it's not one I care about.
My housework for this week (before LCA, as I will be on camera) was to take the books off of the bookcases in my room and give it all a thorough dust.
Now that has become: take all the books out of the bookcases in my room, give them a shake and clean, scrub the cockroach poo off the shelves, and then move the bookcases out to clean up whatever horror lies behind them 🙀🙀🙀
I lost count of the times she'd killed me before I stopped playing for like six months, I can't believe I survived
I must have missed this story the first time around, or else I've completely forgotten it. It's lovely! A nice smile for difficult times.

By day I work in research infrastructure, by night I read books but mostly sleep
