OK I have to stop calling home to test my SDF VoIP because it's been freaking out my DAd LOL He's been asking who 'snowdusk' was and what kind of company would have a name called 'snowdusk' -- all in lower caps (the phone on the photo always display caller IDs in upper case but the one in the kitchen can show both upper and lower cases LOL) πŸ˜πŸ’¦πŸ’¦

@snowdusk_ Your parents don't call you snowdusk??
Even my priest calls me 'gemlog' :-)

Actually, another priest from 20 years ago who retired down to New Mexico had his gmail account hacked and lost all his contacts.

He emailed me to get some addresses, because mine was the only email address he could remember! It helped that he new my kids: gemMA and logAN.

@gemlog hahaha NO.... no one in my famliy and circle of friends EVER listen to my show. Back when I had FB a long time ago I used to post announcements about my livestream but still no one cared. I was very disappointed. The "friends" on my FB then were all busy promoting themselves with their selfies and other non-sense. This was one of the reasons I abandoned them all. Let them eat Facebook. I am happy with what I have right now - SDF and Mastodon. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯


I'm such a 🀬πŸ”₯

@gemlog oh i forgot to answer your question... .LOL .... I got carried away... NO... no one in my family and "friends" know I am snowdusk 😝πŸ”₯ LOL

Well, you are officially snowdusk, but now @shufei has christened you snowy :-)
It's shorter, so we'll prolly keep it.
Same as ppl call me gem.

@gemlog coderain also calls me snowy... most call me just 'snow'.... not to be mistaken with the Toronto's own early 90s reggae sensation Snow tho πŸ˜πŸ’¦

@snowdusk_ I'm not big on snow. Just cold. Well, it is! :-)
snowy sounds friendlier :-) I like shufei's version. (and coderain apparently)

@gemlog talking about snow... we just had our first snow fall this morning ❄️
