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.

If you "love women" but only when they look and behave the way you want them to, what you actually love is the power you have over women.

In other news, I am that person in your neighborhood who will subvert all the Halloween costumes by giving out plastic fangs. Now they're Vampire Captain America! Vampire Pirate! Vampire Disney Princesses!

(Related: kids *really* like vampire fangs.)

OH someone on a cell phone at the airport: I'm trying to get her settled and make her stop talking.

Once in awhile I run across a headline that is just so perfect by itself I don't want to click through to read the actual article because it'll never live up to the potential.

"Stolen inflatable colon found in vacant home, Kansas City police say" is one such.

I'm the DJ at work tonight. I'm also 20+ years older than the next oldest person in the room. This should be interesting.

My team at work decided to have a potluck today, but only bringing in their favorite cereals. Everyone was so hopped up on sugar. I have never see the command center so active yet so unproductive. It was fabulous.

Ethiopian (berbere spiced) stew with butternut squash and lentils.

I already Astounding, on ebook and audio, but in the mail today I received another edition direct from the author.

I have a meeting next week at a location that is still on the same campus, but some distance away, doesn't have a shuttle (so I have to drive myself), and requires me to obtain additional security clearances for both me and my car (not difficult, but annoying). The host wants (needs?) me to attend in person and figures the way to make that happen is to bribe me with Starbucks. Bad call, dude. I make enough to buy my own coffee. I drink tea. And if drinking coffee, I'll find a better/local cafe.

Goodnight. Work comes early tomorrow.

It's okay to not be happy. You're a human being and you have emotions. It's important to deal with those feelings and find someone to talk to if you want. But you're valid and that's the truth.

I (as soon as the ebook drops at midnight) Astounding by Alec Nevala-Lee. I first met the author and learned of this book over two years ago, and have been eagerly awaiting its release since then.
