eep engaged with someone on birdsite who is pro-car, anti-train, anti-green, pro-every world politician I'm against. Muting them now but wish I had a time machine to go back with knowledge I have now and just ignore them from the start.
I wish a restaurant existed (preferably within easy-ish travel distance) where you can bring your family or other small group and get a whole goose on the table, with all the trimmings. Our dining room is too small for 7 people and though I *can* cook a goose (and have done it) I don't see my way to doing it next Sunday.
psst, here's a secret: all words are made-up words, words don't grow on trees.
In fact the speaker turned out to be much less obnoxious than everybody (including two people I know who did go) had thought. And what they spoke about was sort of okay, too. Still glad I stayed at home; didn't have spoons for being with all those people.

@OldBrushNewPaper I had an unintentional bike ride (emergency shopping) but it was quite pleasant, with birdsong and a bonus tabby cat.
@david No, sadly not (never had any incentive).
ITYM "No information about batteries available", which is probably a bug, especially as it told me I had only 6% battery left a while ago (which is why I put in the power cord)
pff, laptop says "No batteries available", but I just pulled the power cord out and it's working, so there.
@david Any way to play with it (from where I am)?
@david Does it wag its tail every time you talk to it?
Dear person: if you can't do X you don't have a "dilemma", you have a "problem" or "difficulty". A dilemma is when you can't choose between X and Y.

@zeborah What helps me is that I don't think of "white" as a noun at all!
