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.

food, non-veg

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.

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.

@mrszee Yes, same thing here. (They're all adults now. Seem to have turned out all right. One briefly resented it, but that was a symptom of another problem.)

Yes, website, I prefer "a limited experience". Just the text I came to read. No personalisation. No tracking. No targeted ads. No selling my data to Facebook.

It's so nice when you ask people to send you things in a specific format *and they actually do that*.

@OldBrushNewPaper I had an unintentional bike ride (emergency shopping) but it was quite pleasant, with birdsong and a bonus tabby cat.

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.

Wow, found not ONE but TWO good history blogs (in Dutch): tieselin.blogspot.com (medieval) and mainzerbeobachter.com (sort of all kinds but mostly ancient/archeology)

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!
