I haven't had a haircut since January. I've been too concerned with the pandemic to get one even when shops re-opened in CA. Now it looks like I might need to wait many more months.
It's not a big deal, but it still sucks.

The other day I was hemming and hawing about whether I wanted to risk it by getting a haircut. Guess that decision is now made. It's been since March for me.

What is everyone making for dinner this week?

Dinner this week? That feels like it’s a year away.

(I am bad at meal planning.)

Beard is coming along nicely.

As much as I’d like to, I’m not going to any cookouts today — playing it safe due to increased Covid cases. Sarah 5 and Elliott dropped off some food and this sunflower on my doorstep, though, so that was nice.

Very nice, I like your approach. Thanks a lot for the snippet!


I’ve not heard from a lot of people using the module yet.


My impression is also that the module didn’t quite get the traction it deserves. Just love the work you have put into it!


By the way, we’ve been having weekly virtual indieweb meetups if you’d like to join.


Awesome, I will see if I can join.

Thanks a lot for your response, Gregor!

By the way, are you using the PW2 or PW3 version of the Webmention plugin? I'm still on PW2 myself but will likely switch to PW3 in the coming months. I plan to support both versions for a while, but since most new people will be on PW3 I'll feel more comfortable once I'm running that on my own site as well.


8pm is kinda late so I will have PESOS dinner beforehand. Look forward to seeing everyone at the IndieWebCamp West Pre-party, though!
