• Rainy Portland Sunday, waiting for a Lyft passenger.

  • Mycelial network. (Someone’s been watching too much Star Trek: Discovery. 🖖)

  • I just finished [Mindfulness for Mere Mortals] (http://www.patrickrhone.net/3108-2/) by @patrickrhone. It’s a great short read. If you are new to meditation, it’s a down-to-earth intro. If you’ve tried and failed, it can give you a re-starting point. 📚

  • It’s not Micro Monday yet, but I highly recommend you follow @macgreg today, because he is posting awesome photos of a baking project he’s working on. Guanabana cake: you had me at kiwis. 🥝

  • The headline should be Homeless woman feels safer in airports and on planes than on the street—and so do you. Serial stowaway busted for sneaking past airport security - NY Daily News

  • Doing a stint of babysitting for a friend. I introduced my 7-year-old charge to the insanely addictive Guinea Pig Bridge song/video. She’ll be singing this for years. (Cue evil laugh.)

  • thepointsguy.com/2018/01/n…

    I’m an Alaska fan and not a fan of the Virgin disco lounge aesthetic, so I’m pleased they aren’t going too crazy. (BTW testing Feedbin integration.)

  • Day 5 in the quest for the Daily Blogger Pin (30-day posting streak). I asked @manton a few questions and learned: - Replies don’t count. - Cross-posts to Micro.blog do count, like my photos via OwnYourGram. - The day ends at midnight in your time zone.

  • I’m easily incentivized by pins and badges, essentially little packets of pixels and code. I’m going for my 30-day streak pin on Micro.blog. This is Day 4. Has anyone besides @manton earned that pin?

  • I had a lot of quibbles with the user experience of our local transit app. But existential dread was not one of them until today. Uncertain End. Uncertain Destination. “Choices” that are identical. 😱

  • Dog niece Olive visits for MLK weekend. Similar advantage to human nieces: all the fun and snuggles, no vet bills or college tuition to plan for.

  • Now I’m a professional dog walker! I decided I needed to do something that balances out the sedentary life of the Lyft driver.

  • Today’s Micro Monday suggestion: Jonathan LaCour aka @cleverdevil (https://micro.blog/cleverdevil). He just started a new job as CTO at a cloud services company called Reliam, and I’m curious to see what he will do in his post-Dreamhost career. Also, he’s a cool guy.

  • My first book recommendation with the new book emoji tag (thanks @manton!): Pride and Prejudice. I love this little book, which stays true to the text, except for the guinea pig part. 📚

  • The first movies I saw Gary Oldman in were Sid & Nancy (1986) and Prick Up Your Ears (1987). Definitely would have laughed if someone said “That guy would be an awesome Winston Churchill.”

  • Just added my pronouns to my Micro.blog bio, thanks to this reminder from @belle.

  • This was a fun Micro Monday. I am looking forward to all your recommendations again next Monday, and will have fun deciding who to pick for mine.

  • Keep those Micro Monday posts coming. If you want to see follow recommendations already made today, check the Discover tab.

  • Micro Monday: I recommend @modernlittleme, a designer who posts beautiful photos, interesting book recommendations, and dispatches from the exotic (to me) world of parenthood. She is apparently a hedgehog person, but appreciates guinea pigs. I’m glad I met her via Micro.blog.
