This is like everyone simultaneously wandering around the cafeteria holding their trays looking for their friends.
Well, perfect occasion to make new ones. Grab a seat and make yourself confortable.
BTS, this is Olfa, she likes to be pet. 🐕👋
@liza haha yes! While eyed by amused veterans... I like it a lot, found so many interesting ppl in so little time <3
@liza So, like, there's a chair there. I dunno. You can, I guess set. If that's your thing. <glowers>
@liza that seems to kinda be Masto’s “low key superpower” in some ways?
Like… it’s a little more awkward, but in a more human way?
@liza hoping that we see a lot more cool interactive fiction/weird games people joining fedi 🤞 even if it's also an eternal october
@liza Trying not to get shanked. Let's play: Am I talking about prison or did I go to a shifty school? 😂
@liza For sure! If I have the energy tomorrow I'll try to x-reference my complete Twitter list. But I don't know if I've got that in me.
@liza We're all just trying to find seats that are the perfect mix of not too far from everyone to be isolated but not close enough to be weird
@liza I’m just here trying to figure out whether this is a giant food court where I can see everyone else eating or whether there are separate restaurants that my friends went to and I just haven’t found them yet??
@liza I'm not sure if we know each other yet, because I'm overwhelmed by today...but if we aren't already, I think we might
@liza at least people don’t say “seat’s taken” here when you find a table to sit at. So far, they wave and invite you to join in.
That was my experience too (in 2017?!).
Because I'm also on metafilter, I found a bunch of somewhat-familiar folks by searching for the mefite hashtag, plus a bunch of people I *thought* were mefites, plus a bunch of folks they followed.
Of course, it turned out most of the mefites had gone back to birdsite, but it was okay; the other folks were still pretty much all cool and nice.
BTW, y'all seem cool so I'm gonna follow along like the clingy nerdboy I am^Wwas.
