me sitting on my red couch

Happy New Year from my couch. I was told I look cute so figured I’d share.

I’ve known for a while that I should talk to a therapist but kept putting it off because that first step seems so daunting.

Tonight I finally signed up for BetterHelp, an online service. It feels good to have taken even this tiny step.

Hi, Isha.

Just write, dammit.

Currently reading: Ordinary Grace by William Kent Krueger (ISBN 9781451645859)

Impeachment 2: Electric Boogaloo.

Impeached on both articles!

I matched with someone on OkCupid that sounded promising and the profile even sounded like it was written by a real human, but then the profile vanished before I could even write an introduction.

Sorry to anyone who's just received a tonne of webmentions from me - I'm tweaking the way the sending works so there are a few new places you may see them come from

I noticed one from the /mf2 page on your site which surfaced a bug on my end. I need to handle mentions from feed pages better.

holding the book 'And Introducing' by Jez Burrows

“The new phonebook’s here, the new phonebook’s here!” Lovely work, @jezburrows.

This is an annual reminder that Scala & Kolacny Brothers’ album December is so good.

I really miss having an RSS feed reader. I miss the days when that's how I would aggregate all my content.

Maybe it's time to redownload NetNewsWire.

I've been using Monocle and really enjoying it! More on

Following up on EasieRSVP: I updated my event pages so Twitter replies that start with “rsvp yes” or “rsvp no” will show as RSVPs. I also standardized them with emoji and “Attending” or “Not attending”. You can see it in action on this week’s HWC SD event page! Charlotte’s RSVP and mine are indie RSVPs; the other two are Twitter RSVPs. Charlotte’s is currently showing as unknown because the microformats aren’t quite right on their post.

I'm making progress on IndieAuth for ProcessWire and currently thinking about access token expiration. I am thinking about including a setting for token expiration time so people can set that (default: two weeks).

Occasionally you may want to give an app non-expiring access, though. Below is a screenshot of the interface I've been working on for that. It's definitely an alpha version, but any feedback would be appreciated, especially on user-friendliness.

So we immediately ban all fossil fuel and then what? I don’t understand the argument. We need to replace hundreds of millions of cars, changes out logistics and power systems and delivery systems overnight?

Bernie also doesn’t support an immediate ban.

The question in this video is mainly fracking, though, which others have called for a ban on.

I wasn't very clear with that parenthetical and probably should have left it off. I don't like what I've learned about his policies so far. I'm not arguing to ban all fossil fuel.

What is up with Biden's hands on the shoulders like that? Still being a creepy guy, I guess (not to mention bad policies).


New haircut, old head

What is only fans? Is it good?

Like Patreon but you take off your clothes so I think Liturgists fans are IN.

We’re a week out from the first Homebrew Website Club San Diego!

Join us December 11 6pm @ Subterranean Coffee. Details:

If you’re coming, please reply to this with “rsvp yes” or “rsvp maybe”

Peloton is that supplement that helps you sleep, right?
