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.

I'm writing an email in which I have to take the high road. This will take the rest of my day.

Observing monkey mind during #meditation this morning, I realised that it looks a lot like Facebook 😂🐒😂

My personal meditation practice has been suffering lately. I started identifying causes, and find that the timer app I've been using has turned into my biggest block. I like the timer itself, and the fact that it keeps a log. But there is a social networking component that, over time, has started to wear me down. Two days ago I decided to try using just a plain timer, and keep the log offline in my .

"I wouldn’t be acting for you, I would be acting for Robson against you. I would be trying to prove that you are a bad mother. Lucretia Borgia degrees of bad mother." The reread is reminding me how much I love this book. Luna: New Moon by Ian McDonald

I () Luna: New Moon by Ian McDonald. This series is cocktail culture on the moon along with several Game Of Thrones style families battling for dominance. The third book is coming out at the end of March, so I'm reminding myself of the story so far.

They say that a teaspoon of a neutron star weighs as much as the Great Pyramid of Giza. That's cool and all, but which recipe is asking for that ingredient??? What could you possibly be making??? And what have you done to the oven?!!?

Well, the hard drive install didn't go especially well. Or go at all. The super slim compact tower has the strangest drive bays I've ever seen. I need to pick up some additional mounting hardware and try again.

My friend is the queen of wine pairing, but I had to choose by myself tonight. I've selected a lovely (aka cheap) pinot noir to perfectly offset replacing the hard drive in my partner's desktop while he's out of town.

I only do hardware once every 5 years or so, I'm already 1/3 of a bottle in, and the drive hasn't even been delivered yet. What could go wrong?

Pretending I live a life of leisure by hanging out at a friend's beach condo. The beach is very windy today, but hanging out on the balcony with wine and a book is very nice.

The gutter guy moved everything onto our patio and this squirrel thought it was a playground.

Many folks don't understand why I migrated to non-traditional weekends (Thu/Fri). The simplest explanation... I'm at the beach today and it's empty.

Today I saw a post where someone mentioned she was so happy that the 1st of the month was on a Friday because she was able to spend 8 hours on Saturday setting up the new month in her . I spent 10 minutes setting up February, and my first thought was "how can something that eats that much time help organize your life?"
My second thought was that I really have a debt to @jessmahler for setting me on the right track with my .

If we start a "Seat Belts Cause Autism" movement, it would help minimize the amount of unvaccinated children in existence. #Showerthoughts
