@RELEVANTpodcast #EQOTW My goto pick-me-up would be almost any Homestar Runner video, but I particularly love the sbemail "Kid's Book," which has a line I use in my bio: "Gregor is a weird name" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT4SGdq0ZyU

Happy birthday, @indiana_mama! Since you’re sharing a birthday with a lemur, here are some true facts about them. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJA3dYwIB3s
I think we're such good friends because we're both so humble.
Thanks! Let us know if you have any questions.
My two projects for today's IndieWebCamp Austin were 1) write stuff and 2) mock up a CSS Grid photo gallery. I want to use my site to, you know, actually write stuff more often. I have a couple posts in progress and I thought having several hours today would be a good opportunity. One of those posts is about my recent trip to Israel. I intend to publish a bunch of photos at the same time, so I wanted to work on adding photo galleries to my site.
I ended up spending most of the day on the CSS Grid photo gallery, but I am quite pleased with the result. I did finish in enough time to write this post, so technically I succeeded on both projects!
The photo gallery is responsive and I can change how many rows/columns in the grid an individual photo takes up by changing a class name. At lower resolution, it uses 2 grid columns. At higher resolutions, it uses 4 grid columns. IE11 does not support CSS Grid but does support Flexbox, so my next step will be to add some Flexbox fallbacks.

Awesome! See you there.
Sorry to hear that. Depression is a bitch and also a liar.
@davemillar Hey, David, are you still planning on coming to IndieWebCamp Austin? Would be great to see you there! https://2019.indieweb.org/austin
In a large pot, cook fettuccine as directed. Towards the end of the pasta cooking, add the broccoli into the pot to cook for approximately 3–4 minutes.
In a greased large saucepan, heat garlic on medium-high heat for 2 minutes.
Add red pepper flakes, ginger, and brown sugar into the saucepan. Allow to cook another 2 minutes.
Add soy sauce, rice wine vinegar, and peanut butter to the saucepan. Use a spaghetti spoon or whisk to mix in the peanut butter to the liquid to form a sauce.
When the sauce begins to bubble, add the cooked pasta/broccoli to the saucepan. Mix well. Add the carrot. Mix well to prevent clumps.
@anniefdowns I feel like the Relevant podcast guys went extra hard on you this past Tuesday. Maybe it was all good fun, but wanted to tell you I appreciate your slices and your voice on the show! #downwiththeslicesczar

This is very relatable. Negative self-talk can be so difficult to overcome. Have you read any Brene Brown? I recently finished her book Daring Greatly and recommend it.

This was a decent heist-on-the-moon story, but I didn’t love most of the characters, unfortunately. I appreciate the effort to make the protagonist more diverse — a Muslim woman in her twenties — but she still came across to me as clearly written by a dude. She makes a lot of jokes you would expect from a junior high boy, so she didn’t seem very authentic. For example, describing drinking water while in a space suit:
I turned my head inside the helmet, bit a nipple (try not to get excited), and sucked some water out.
There were a lot of little jokes and commentaries delivered in this awkward, parenthetical way, like she’s abruptly addressing the reader directly. That took me out of the story at times.
