Thanks for sending your daily travel notices in a time zone (EST) that is neither my home (PST) or travel time zone (GMT). Super useful.

Alright twitter, how's this work? Is it just a placebo? Is it because of the two prong plug maybe providing power on one prong? I expect a detailed answer alongside a ELI5 answer by the time I land.

Folks, I know of an educator/writer looking for a new role. They are a fabulous writer, but also great at UX/Tech Writing/editing/instructional design. I really couldn't recommend them more and am sad I can't hire them.

Remote or within ~30 minutes of Sacramento. DMs are open!

For anyone wondering...Β you can totally use a Playstation controller with Project xCloud on iOS. Super cool! :D

The comm badges in Star Trek (i.e. not TOS) are the ultimate Mcgufin; who can hear them and when they work is purely for driving the plot. Send tweet.

Y'all, I went to an Elton John laser show tonight, it was a blast! This was far from the coolest effect, but I didn't want to distract anyone even if video was allowed (without flash, screen at its lowest brightness).

Alright folks, it's time for a new wallet. I'm looking for the following:

- Slim
- Holds paper money
- ID slot (where you can see it without taking it out)
- Holds about a dozen cards
- RFID blocking is a nice bonus


And that’s it. Britain is a nation alone, an island in actuality is now also an island in spirit.

My heart grieves for what will be seen as a victory by bigots and small minded people, and that will cause actual harm to those most vulnerable.

I am sad. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§πŸ’”πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί

The latest Supreme Court decision is a travesty. Allowing those who need help should be our highest priority, not seen as undesirables because of the rights bigotry. Stealing a SCOTUS seat is the best trick the devil ever pulled β€”Β never forget this.

Me: while I appreciate the use of a coaster...

7: thank you

Me: ...perhaps the stairs isn’t the best place to put a drink?

7: oh. yeah. *pouts* probably not.

Can someone explain why surgeries are always done so fucking early? πŸ₯±

Lazy Web: recommendations for SFF audiobooks? Particularly looking for audiobooks that are well performed, preferably URM authors/voice talent.

Now, let's vote out!

I'm so excited for #2020 πŸŽ‰. This time next week I could be a US Citizen, and that's just week one!

I feel optimistic that there will be lots of positive change this year, and I'm going to work as hard as possible to make sure of it. 🦁

This is going to be a magnificent year❣️

It is shocking that on a transatlantic Business class flight with that costs almost $6000, you must then additionally pay $129 *each way per passenger* to choose a seat before check-in to guarantee you can sit with your child. What the heck, BA?!

What? No U stayed up till 4am watching the expanse! How am I only up to S2E12?! This show is bonkers!

Twice in E10/11 (whenever it is we meet Prax) I literally gasped out loud, and what happens with Gunney 😱

So uh… just received a lovely box of British candy from Belgium, addressed to the family with no indication of who it's from, so if it was you: please let yourself be known so I can say thanks properly πŸ˜³πŸ’–
