GenX woman; sarcasm is my first language

Working remotely while caring for my elderly father and 2 adult sons with autism

Grew up in Michigan and ended up in Florida

I love music and reading and podcasts and Lego and cycling. And chocolate.

Ok, so naked running. Apparently this means running without GPS, music, or any other tech.

I wish I knew this an hour ago.

If you'd like to support the Electric Bicycle Incentive Kickstart for the Environment (E-BIKE) Act, which would provide a refundable tax credit for up to 30% of the cost (up to $1,500) of a new #ebike, fill out this form from @peopleforbikes

Chronically ill/disabled people need to shop for groceries. We want to travel. We want to see our friends. We want to live full lives.

We need everyone masking to do this safely.

I sometimes hear from people that I talk about bikes a lot—or too much—and they wonder why I do that. The reason is climate change. I enjoy and care about bikes for other reasons, but compared to other climate change work I could see doing, I believe adding protected bike lanes in cities is: (1) cost efficient, (2) a fight that needs support where I live, (3) a case where a successful model (such as Paris) can have broader effects, and (4) the right time for it, because of the rise of ebikes.

Why Do You Love Vanilla? Ask Your Mom | by Joe Scaglione | The Technical | Medium I heard on SmartLess podcast that vanilla is similar to mother’s milk but I wasn’t breastfed. My son was breastfed and prefers chocolate. So… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Gov. Bill Lee of Tennessee let his domain lapse and is now in the "finding out" portion of fucking around with a tech industry that is dominated by LGBTQIA+ people.

Edit: If he DIDN'T register the site for two years after he was elected this is even FUNNIER! LOL

I saw a yellow RIVIAN truck IRL. The yellow is not as exciting as @marcoarment claimed. But it is still better than any white vehicle. 🧌 for @caseyliss ❤️

Are you trying to decide whether to mask when you go out? Here's a quick checklist to help you decide.

- Is COVID still airborne?
- Is it still super contagious?
- Are hundreds of people still dying from it each week? (This might be hard to find, as governments try to hide this information... which should be an indicator in and of itself.)
- Does it still cause brain damage?
- Cardio-pulmonary damage?
- Immune memory erasure?
- How much of the above can you, personally, afford?

Today is the third anniversary of Working From Home.
I didn’t want to and was the last one from my group to go home.
I liked being away from my boys and my dad.
Things turned out so much than I expected, except I never took advantage of the commute time to do something constructive.
I really hope I never have to work in an office again but I do hope I can socialize with adults some day.

A good way to make yourself feel your brain is broken and you no longer know how computers work is to sit down in front of someone else's machine and try to use it. It doesn't have to be running a different operating system. In fact, the closer it is to yours the worse and more confusing it will feel as you get tripped up by any of the dozens of things you feel are just how computers work but which in fact are some preference you set in 2004 (or 1984) and have taken for granted ever since.

So deregulation during Trump’s presidency caused train derailments and bank failures. And people think he should run again?
Sometimes, I just don’t get it.
