Okay, I'm _pretty_ sure that migration worked! Looks like past toots don't carry over tho, so time again!

I'm Mike! Used to do Space Stuff, but now I do stuff at $employer to pay for cardboard boxes for my cats. The big dream is to open up a combination bakery / makerspace and never have to look at a computer again.

My stand mixer started skipping, so I did a tear down. _No idea_ how I managed to do this to the worm-follower, but at least the replacement is only like $13. Plus new grease!

Something about mechanical repairs like this hit completely different from computer work. And it feels great.

Behold, the 4th time in a single evening that Gus got his face stuck in the ice cream.

Even like this, we could hear his tongue furiously licking the bottom of the pint.

Okay, on the one hand: biking and taking the light rail to my eye doctor was so much nicer than driving.

On the other I'm fucking exhausted.

The dirty things I'd do for a workday that wasn't entirely interrupts and context switching.

My entire body hurts from getting back to the gym.

While technically a Good Thing.... bleh.

Someone asked me once that as a straight dude, am I bothered about how high-profile LGBTQ+ initiatives become in mainstream culture.

I think they were surprised when I said no because their advocating for themselves gives us space for us all to be fuller versions of ourselves. If anything, we should be supporting them more vocally.

Sure, we may have differences of opinion about who we find attractive but that's always going to be the case. I like thick women with glasses and smart mouths. Ha, everybody's not into that. And that's fine.

I think there's a lot more space and weirdness for straight folks to exist in that we have no need to be threatened by people that arent'.

At the end of the day, I feel like we all should be on the same page in expanding what it is to be human because in some way shape, or form we are all suffering the effects of having our humanity crushed into boxes that aren't meant to contain it.

In my estimation, we're all on the same side.

Spending the day knocking out random household chores and trying to learn

So now:
- the disco ball planter is hanging in my partner's zoom background
- I'm slightly less baffled about how to arrange some code
- our adirondack chairs have fresh varnish

It's a Good Brain Day.

Tech enthusiast: "I want smart lights, smart tv, everything, and connect them all to my digital assisstant!"

Tech worker: *looks wistfully into distance* "I should get a small place in a little town, with a garden, make my own furniture."

Believe it or not, this is Gus sleeping. And purring his heart out

Still sore from my first real workout after a bunch of pt. Trying to work up the inertia to get out of bed and do it again.

Gotta get me them endorphins!
