hi all, ask usually gets a question about comfort or easy reads every month or so. Has anyone done any compilations? ... and if not, who has an opinion on the best way for me to make one? [more inside]
Hi there, I don't know if anyone will be interested but if you are, I have a paid up Minecraft server with 50 open slots. It would be an easy way to interact with other Mefites, if you already own the game, and hopefully a nice distraction. [more inside]
I can't improve on Gotanda's intro for the last check in thread so here it is again updated: A third catch-all thread for mefites living in areas directly affected by novel coronavirus (aka SARS-CoV-2 and COVID-19) picking up from the last one. Again, please no idle speculation, catastrophizing, or chat. Let's stick to actual news, updates, personal experiences, and more mutual support from and to people dealing with this virus in their daily lives. How you all doing?
I’m looking for an article that was previously linked (I think on the green, but could have been the blue). It had tips on how to get the most out of meetings - one of the bits of advice was for the chair at the beginning effectively to say what order she would call on attendees to speak. The benefits of this included that people didn’t spend their time just waiting to interrupt, and also ensured that the meeting wasn’t dominated by the usual suspects. I think the context for this may have making sure that otherwise marginalised voices get heard - but it may also have just been straightforward good meeting etiquette. Can anyone link me to this? Thanks all and stay safe
Many local organizations are developing mutual aid organizations of neighbors helping neighbors get their basic needs met (grocery shopping, phone calls for wellness/connection, etc.). I'm working locally in my physical neighborhood, but I consider metafilter my neighborhood as well. Would others be interested in sharing their needs and seeing if anyone in the community can meet them? For example: I have toilet paper to share (as long as you don't mind the recycled eucalyptus sort) and can do grocery shopping for vulnerable mefites in the L.A. area. If you're very low on tp I can mail you some and also toss in some local fruit from our backyard tree. I could use: if you're making fabric masks, I could really use them for my aunt (ICU nurse). She's running low and I'm working extra hours at work (I know, I'm lucky to be working) so I don't have time to sew myself.
As we self-quarantine, why not escape to Stardew Valley? This is a post to discuss the perfidy of Mayor Lewis, the struggle to fish and the delights of starfruit. Also, post if you'd like to form a multiplayer farm with other mefites (up to four per game).
Good Saturday ... some time, MetaFilter! This week, share some of your favorite movies, shows, books, and music for when you need something soothing to enjoy! So we can all have many more options for sinking into a cloud of escapist comfort! [more inside]
I'm playing Animal Crossing: New Horizons. The game was just released and it's available on the Nintendo Switch. It seems like everyone is playing these days. Let's talk about our islands/towns. What fruit did you end up getting? There are five possibilities (not counting coconuts): apples, cherries, peaches, pears, and oranges. If you're up for it, let's share our Nintendo Switch Friend codes so we can visit each other's islands/towns. This is a super chill game and it makes me happy. If you have the opportunity, consider picking it up. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Happy crafting, farming, shopping, & exploring friendos.
I just stumbled across the fact that this beautiful rotary cell phone is now available in kit form. A number of people expressed a desire to have one. I figured I'd link to it here....unless there's a better place for it?
