Sticky toot

Hi everyone. I've was at mastodon.social for over a year while I've searched for an instance that sounded like a good fit for me.

I am a cook, constantly experimenting with new recipes and techniques.

I read a lot of Science Fiction, a little bit of Fantasy, and a smattering of anything else.

I drink bourbon and am always looking to try new ones.

A company pays me on a regular basis to be a numbers geek.

the bus lines here are mainly numbered, except the free routes near campus, named after planets.

Which I forget about until I approach the transit station and the automated voice reads out
“Transfers to: 48, 62, 65, 66, 72, MERCURY, MARS, EARTH, VENUS, and JUPITER”

Butternut squash and chickpea tagine along with a Wilcox recommended wine pairing.

I spent tonight observing at the urgent care and what I have to say about that is:

AAAAAAAH JESUS FUCK GET YOUR FLU SHOTS

Today at work: My laptop HD crashed for 2nd time in 6 months. 4 unrelated major aspects of one property failed simultaneously. A "partner" from another division tried to make a power play against my staff. Our texting system decided to throw away any incoming messages from a certain cell company containing a specific phrase (that is often in texts to us). And there was a last minute decision to deploy an upgrade tonight 2 weeks early and untested. Or, as seems to be the norm now, it was Monday.

Meatloaf and roasted garlic & parsnip mashed potatoes along with "The Dreaming Tree" Cabernet Savignon.

My dear one always eats whatever I cook for dinner and almost ever makes requests. Today he specifically asked for something, so in the middle of a full day I'm starting prep work for dinner. This will eventually be a meatloaf.

I’ve been dealing with a very sick boy for the past few days. It will most likely be weeks before he’s completely better. But considering I was terrified that this was the end, and it’s definitely not, I’ll do whatever is needed to help him get better. But I could use some help on the financial side.

As you probably already knew, 2018 has been a yellow year. That's why our notes throughout the year had the corresponding color.

It should be 104 positive notes. And we're going to read them now. Well-fed and conscientiously watched by our droid, of course. #NewYearsEve

Boomers: *spend 50 years implementing anti-loitering laws/overpolicing of public spaces, hostile arcitecture, child protection laws that strip kids away from (marginalized) families if left unattended for 5 minutes*

Boomers: "Why don't kids go outside anymore?? Must be Fortnite"

I lost a dear cousin last night, so tonight is music and cooking therapies. The primary selections are my take on clam chowder and Marian Call's Standing Stones. Both are very comforting.

I didn't expect to like Blackfish City by Sam J. Miller, and only started it because of multiple recommendations. Now I'm sitting in the parking lot at work weeping after just finishing the understated, yet exquisitely powerful, final chapter. Definately a Hugo nominee from me.

Positive folk of Mastodon, I want to share a tradition of mine with you.

Each week, we my wife and I write a note with good things that happened throughout the week. We then add these notes to a year.

On #NewYearsEve, we empty the jar and read about the amazing year we had. It's obviously great to finish/start a year this way, but it's also nice as it "forces" us to contemplate the last week and appreciate the good things that happened, even when things were stressful or felt very mundane.

A new project at work is blowing up tonight, and this appeared on my desk.

I spent far too many hours at a car dealer yesterday. But on the positive side, my darling's 2+ years of analisys and indecision has finally ended and he's bought a car.

FYI: if you've been interested in #bulletjournal but intimidated by all the fancy pictures and youtube videos, it's okay.

#bujo doesn't need all that stuff, in fact, the original version was just text, not even fancy headings.

Here's an example of a REAL minimalist bullet journal.
