Married, gay American-Australian guy living in rural Victoria. I'm creative, kind, hopeful, and sometimes a tiny bit weird. (And you know what? That's okay!)

I dropped my keyboard and mouse receiver in coffee ☕️ last night. Will it work today? We shall see.

Oh, that Raspberry Pi 4 is the 4GB version. I decided that I'm gonna use my older one as a dedicated media box for my bedroom TV--though playing retro games on it would be nice too. :)

Finally feeling better. I've been using my Raspberry Pi 4 as my main computer. It's been interesting. I can't get Mednaffe to play nicely with my wireless SNES controllers (from Vilros) and also can't get anything from Higan to sound nice with anything. Sound is a bit messed up with some apps like Telegram Desktop. Other than that it's been nice, but I miss my Mac. lol

The rain’s gonna get crazy tonight! (Hopefully not too crazy though...) ⛈️

The time is ticking down until I have to go back home and be a responsible adult again. Boo.

Sorry for disappearing but I’m still coughing my guts up and being lazy.

Didn’t get a flu shot here. Paying for it now. As long as I’m fine when I head home, I’m all good.

Merry Christmas everybody on the other side of the world. Or Happy Holidays if Christmas isn’t your thing.

I need to go shopping today but first I need to get two lazy people out of bed.

I don’t care about Disney+. There. It’s out in the open. (I do like my Mickey Mouse watch face though.)

Can someone come here and drag me out of bed? Took a couple of Benadryl last night and my body refuses to get up.

In a couple of days my husband will land on USA soil for the first time. He’s headed to family first before he comes here so I’ll let them deal with his lag. Haha.

I’m sorry, but being able to open an app with touch ID or code should never be something that you have to pay a subscription for... that kinda makes companies look GREEDY and INSENSITIVE about a user’s privacy...

It’s a good morning to have some Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Unfortunately I haven’t gotten out of bed yet.

My mom got me a Raspberry Pi 4 for Christmas. (We don’t keep secrets very well... especially gifts.) Then I realised that I didn’t have the right connections for it. I ordered a new case w/ fan, power supply and stuff for it. I can’t wait to play with it. Gonna try to do something fun with my Pi 3.

All the grease I had yesterday is starting to affect me. Not feeling that great. :(

After living in Australia for so long, I’m realising how incredibly wasteful Americans are (at least where I am now). LOTS of stuff being thrown away that can either be eaten, reused, or at least recycled.

Oh, regarding my last toot, I gave in and went to DQ. It was pretty good. ;)

It’s a bit strange: I’m not hungry for anything... but I will admit that some Dairy Queen junk would be good. (Chicken strips sound good.) Trying to wait until my husband gets here so I can share this ‘junk’ with him. ;)
