Olive’s face tells you that she didn’t enjoy having her blood drawn. However, she tried to cheer herself up by wearing her sparkly pink bandage like an 80s leg warmer.

A combination of being busy at work, a weekend vacation and the return of a couple of twice-weekly podcasts (The Totally Football Show & My Dad Wrote a Porno) means that September is the first month this year where I haven’t finished an audiobook.

Alongside 1364 other people from 99 different countries I became a US citizen today. It was genuinely heartwarming (particularly in contrast to the depressing news cycle) to see so many people from all over the world celebrate the milestone with their friends and family.

A few changes have resulted in updates to my home screen: running the iOS 13 beta and returning to stock apps like Reminders, moving from Dropbox to iCloud for file storage, and my return to Twitter

We haven’t seen any critters in the backyard recently, aside from a gopher. We suspect that the coyotes in the neighborhood are the reason why. So it was actually kind of nice to see this possum under the deck.

We’ll see if I will remain active on Twitter. I will say that my experience over the last week has ranged from good to not so fun, but unfollowing people and particularly disabling retweets has made a big difference. At this point I’m cautious, but hopeful.

The way that I will be posting to Twitter has changed. My tweets will now originate on my own site and are syndicated/cross-posted to Twitter. I am still active on Micro.blog and I hope to make my Twitter experience feel more like the community there.

18 months after unfollowing everyone and deleting all of my tweets I returned to Twitter a week ago 😬 I’ve spent the last week following people and then being aggressive about disabling retweets or just unfollowing people who for me are too frequently negative or outraged.
