Installing the AliExpress app on my phone because I've decided I don't like having money.

Us: it's not good to lie to your kids so we're not going to do Santa Claus in our home

Half of all kids TV: and now a very special Christmas episode where Chippy the Chipmunk goes to the North Pole to meet Santa and learns the true meaning of Christmas!

Other half of kids TV: we literally never even hinted at this before but Otto the Octopus' family is Jewish but tonight Otto has to help Santa deliver his presents before midnight!


@polychrome one thing I like – turn it off & on to start over completely w/no state saved.

Been listening to a lot of Illinois Street Lounge on Soma FM. One thing that stands out is how much the songs from the 60s talk about "watching girls" as a thing to do. Like you just sit there and watch young women walk around? That's it? Somebody get me a time machine, I want to bring these guys back some Nintendo Switches.

How did we make any social and technological progress in that era? It was the gays, wasn't it?

Just when I thought I've seen everything, last night I downloaded an ANSI-style roguelike for my Android phone that made me watch ads to get food.

Fun fact: each book scanned for the Internet Archive has a unique identifier, usually the title of the item, or its first 16 characters; the volume number, or 00 if there isn't one; and the first 4 characters of the author. So:

@annika oh yeah and hopefully a 10k run in there somewhere

@annika spending time with my kid. Haircut. Glow Season 3. Working on a hardware project. Maybe a trip to Ikea?

re: birdsite 

I logged out of birdsite on my laptop and removed it from my phone's launcher. So tired of the constant drama, the talking past each other, the abuse...

Please don't let Mastodon get popular *sigh*

I'm the child of an organizational psychologist. I grew up around org-speak bullshit and I know all about "growing pains". I know actual professionals who have gotten the dirt on the current situation and been like "what the fuck is wrong with these people".

I guess it was inevitable. I've gotten good at PUBG. Two chicken dinners tonight. One 2nd place long after the rest of my squad was dead. And...

I've lost interest in PUBG.

@ajroach42 I feel like the "built in readers" thing isn't much of a factor anymore. Anecdotally, I used to know people who regularly checked Medium like it was a social media site & shared links. Now it feels like that's fallen by the wayside. Authors promote their pieces on social media and those links get shared, but I haven't heard of anyone"checking Medium" in at least a year.
