Pinned toot

I should do a , since last time was on my old instance.

I’m GB. I’m a UX designer in Austin. I’ve been designing software/web products and services for ~20 years (I started early). I’m an advocate for inclusive design and , and I barely talk about work here, but always up for shop talk.

I’m cis he/him, but I love the shit out of all y’all. I’m a dad, hubby, and subject to the true rulers, our 2 cats. I’m into fancy tea, weird music, and you.

I’m so glad I’m an introvert for all this shit. My only desires to leave the house are occasionally refreshing the food and I kind of want a new office chair… but even then I really didn’t want to leave the house for those either.

Look, I know I’m a tree-hugger, but I just wish they would stop fucking me in the spring.

I mention to my wife my paranoia with the virus and my poor health (and my discomfort going grocery shopping) and she says she understands and then gets uppity when I say no, I don’t want to go to Costco tomorrow. I mean, were you paying attention?!

Well, Jake Gyllenhall on peterpan wires is the highlight of my evening.

So is this still a thing? Because I need some positivity again.

Important PSA for people living in the US: The FCC has been forced to reopen public comment on the Net Neutrality decision following a court case by Mozilla. The influx of bots (suspiciously using the names of telecom subscribers) that were anti-Net Neutrality has caused this. The FCC is trying to bury this, and very few are reporting on it.
To (re)file your thoughts on the FCC's decision, go to fcc.gov/ecfs/filings/express. Proceeding 17-108 is Net Neutrality. This ends in March.

On the plus side, I got to pet an otter today. Here’s the handler playing with them after the petting session.

Had a shit day at work. Came home to care for my laid-up wife and my kid fell down the stairs (she’s okay). Opened Facebook to see pics from my 20yr reunion I can’t go to, and pics of my siblings having a nice evening with my father, whom I haven’t seen in nearly 10 years.

Fuck today.
