So far, Kicksnarker now exists in crippled broken form on FB, Slack, Discord, and LiveJournal.

My wife had informed me that I am allowed two more days of moping about the coming loss of G+.

MeWe has a significant alt-right infestation. If the blocking tools aren't robust enough, that'll make it nonviable for me.

I cannot express in words just how upset I am that Google has decided to shot down G+.

Yes, we have ten months left, but G+ is my primary online social outlet, and I've met a TON of really awesome people there.

Now I need to adapt to another site. Somehow. Ugh.

So I have 28.5 hours of vacation time accrued. Plus eight hours of Flex Time.

That's ... almost a week off, should I choose to take it. And I really should. And soon.

Between Levi's working on Gun Control and Nike hiring Kaepernick, it's gonna get real easy to spot MAGATurds pretty quickly, here.

Just got the car repaired. It's a 2007 Saturn Vue with over 200k miles on it, and we love it. It's capable of holding a lot of games.

Every time we take it into the shop, the tech looks under the hood and then comes out to confirm the mileage, because its engine is in such good shape. Because we've kept up on its maintenance.

We will be VERY sad when this car eventually goes.

I'm a huge fan of the board game Room 25. There's a new expansion out - 40 sleeves, one token, five room tiles, and a card or two. $30.

No US release scheduled. Shipping from the manufacturer to me? $45.

So I posted on FB asking if any of my French friends could help me out and I'm not getting a *free* copy from the manufacturer.

Sometimes, I really love my life.

Skarka lists Star Trek Adventures Core Book in his credits. And the Beta Quadrant sourcebook.

He doesn't appear in the credits for either of them.

Modiphius had promised to disclose which product(s) he'd worked on.

Barring a very good explanation from Modiphius, I think I'm done buying their products. I do not like being misled.

Because this is where I talk about food, let me state: Bellevue is weird.

There is an Arco AM/PM about a block from my office, and it is clean and well-lit with wide aisles. It's an appealing place to shop.

It's not dingy and poorly lit and cramped-feeling.

Update: The driver delivered to the wrong address. The printer is up and calibrating now.

My Prusa is due today. UPS shows delivered. Reality says, "Nope!"

Called UPS. Tweeted at UPSHelp. We'll see what happens.

Our cat doesn't seem to be suffering from separation anxiety, even with Steph now back at work full-time.
We're still looking for a companion for her, but knowing that she seems to be okay alone relieves a ton of pressure.

Gout. Either it's not just for old people anymore, or else I'm old people, now.

Just ordered a new 3D printer. Should be here in 2-3 months (Prusa nearly always has a backlog).

Took a step this morning towards adopting a new kitty. It's surprisingly difficult.

Not the process - "find a cat, express interest, meet the cat" is simple.

It's the emotions. I need to keep reminding myself that I'm not replacing RamRam and the Fuzz - I'm supplementing the Butterball. For the Butterball.

2018: The year the vet says you need to get your pet's cybernetic implant patched or I guess it'll join the Botnet of Cats

... and Steph has, after five months of active searching, managed to find a job. We're going to dinner tonight to celebrate.

This is absolutely the best gift I could have received from anyone ever for any reason.

I had a Mocha Monstrosity(TM) this morning. It's a Starbuck's thing.

It's an iced vanilla mocha with double the normal coffee and double the normal amount of vanilla.

My typical caffeine intake right now is one can of soda every week, so right now, I CAN HEAR MY TEETH.
