Hubski is more or less the extent of my social network use right now. And I'm barely on here.

- Since I last popped in, I made some kimchi. Turns out it is really easy to do. My only complaint is there was too much daikon in this batch. At least for my tastes. I'm also fermenting some habaneros right now, which will be turned into sauce here in a couple of days.

- I've started* playing Gemstone IV, which is a MUD. My wife has played for years, and I've picked it up since it kinda scratches that dnd itch. My character is Krogdur, an aged giant-man ranger who came to the city after a life in the woods to commit some eco-terrorism. But then he found the pie shop. Now he mostly just procrastinates while eating pie in the city park.

* Am on haitus until I manage to get a good setup that works with linux. I hate rebooting into windows, but the game's 3rd party tools are built around ruby 2.0, which went EOL 2 years ago.

- I'm going to a wedding this weekend. Had to buy some clothes. Definitely had some sticker shock. Not just for the dress stuff either. I was gonna pick up a sweatshirt since my old one is dead, but fuck. For the prices they wanted at Kohls? It's probably Carhartt and Patagonia from here on out.

- I'm pretty convinced by this point that we're voting down this contract proposal for work. Both the union and the company are pushing approval hard. If it doesn't pass, it'll probably on some technical maneuvering. I think there are some bylaws that they can use if the vote turnout is too low. Turn out is always low.

I was just on Facebook and I thought, "I like the ACLU more than most people I know." I don't have a huge friend group and a lot of them are unfollowed. Or stupid

Fucking word.

I got a Facebook to try and keep up to date on my Boomer family members, but unfollowed them all because old people Facebook is crazy bad.

I keep mine for about the same reason. I really only see posts from things I've liked like the ACLU or The Onion and some anti AA groups I've joined.

I was trying to troll some conservative groups with misattributed Nazi quotes but Facebook started to show me posts from those groups after an algorithm tweak I guess so that got old. Slap the name Ronnie Reagan on a Himmler quote and you can get a lot of fake internet points

Facebook is that uncomfortable Thanksgiving dinner with your idiot uncle who believes in UFO's, vaccines cause cancer, and wants you to buy into his Multi-Level pyramid scam. Only instead of one day a year it is every day.

    Multi-Level pyramid scam.

The other day a guy I know was promoting all natural gluten-free toothpaste. I thought it was exceptionally stupid

And will outlast everything in the Kohl's but at least a decade.
