According to our local paper, the most momentous event happening today is the opening of the northernmost In-N-Out Burger 45 miles south of Portland. ๐Ÿค”

Winter outlier. ๐ŸŒน

One-day only: Earn up to 10X miles on Apple purchases

If you were thinking of buying something big, this would be the day IF you go through your frequent flyer shopping portal. (Exclusions apply, including new 16โ€ MBP and Air Pods Pro. ๐Ÿ˜•)

It’s Micro Monday again! (What the heck is that?)

The latest @monday podcast episode features @vincent, the developer of Gluon, a Micro.blog app. He talks about his career switch from pilot to app developer, and why he likes working with Micro.blog.

The streaming services should give us the option to have new series episodes drop once a week instead of all at once. I watched the first episode of the new Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, and I am struggling to find the willpower not to binge all 8 into the wee hours… ๐Ÿ“บ๐Ÿ‘—๐ŸŽ™

Intensely jealous that @johnphilpin is getting to a New Zealand micro meetup before me. ๐Ÿ’š

Congratulations to everyone who has made it to through Microblogvember and/or the December extension.

TGIF.

December is A Write-Off (and so is June, July, November and January)

The latest episode of @theweeklyreview has been posted. The point was to give tips for staying on track during the holiday season, but apparently we are the ones who need the tips!

Recognize the VIPs in this snapshot Dad took?

I never met any fans of Until The End Of The World (1991) on Twitter.

It’s December, and time to get serious about a replacement for WhenWorks. ๐Ÿ˜ญ @rosemaryorchard: have you picked a replacement for appointment scheduling? I only need 5-6 appointments a month for Micro Monday and Voyager Revisited. WhenWorks was perfect at $5/month.

Celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of Micro.blogโ€™s public launch at ยฟPor Quรฉ No?

I thought about getting a cake, but a margarita called to me. ยฟWhy not?

Welcome to all the new community members! I think it’s a good time to highlight a few things I’ve written to help folks get started on Micro.blog.

How Micro.blog is different from Twitter

How the Discover timeline helps to find people to follow

What the heck is Micro Monday?

Today’s Unexpected Thing: a Frozen II reference in Manton’s latest episode of Timetable.

(PS. I loved F2โ„๏ธ. The music especially, but esp. the sisterhood theme. Anna+Elsa in a crisis reminds me of my sisters. And also my brother, tbh. We’ve got each other’s backs.)

Grace: Mom, please get Ada out of MY cuddle cup.

Grace and I are both mystified by (the normally uncuddly) Adaโ€™s behavior after all the radicchio is gone.

Impending radicchio fest for the guinea pigs.

(Oops, I missed an edit at the very beginning of this week’s @monday episode. I am going to let it go of my perfectionist tendency and just leave it. @canion knows I jinxed myself by discussing how mistakes are avoided…โ˜บ๏ธ)

Another fun @monday podcast episode, this time with @canion, who was the intrepid creator of Blogvember, an idea shamelessly stolen by me for Microblogvember. Have a listen: monday.micro.blog/2019/12/0…
