Drunk New Year’s Eve social media is amazing and hilarious.
The fireworks started early here tonight. They’ve been going since about 8PM.
OK, this edition of Experiment Sunday is over. Back to New Year’s Eve fun times.
Groceries purchased and put away. Kitchen cleaned up. Time to spend New Year’s Eve as it was intended.
I will never be mistaken for a millennial due to the undisputable fact that I hate avocados. Yes, even in guacamole.
I would like to pay tribute to all the blind people who tweet about ordering a pizza every week by letting you all know that I got a large two-topping pizza for $6 and some change, including delivery charges and tax. This is the only time I’ll ever post about ordering a pizza.
I’m all for inspiration, but the social medias are full of copy/paste inspirational quotes and sayings and this is annoying.
Just learned that my cousin Emily has passed away under not-yet-known circumstances. Grateful and thankful to my mom for making sure to call me to let me know so I didn’t find it out through Facebook. Rest in peace and power Emily, you’ll be missed.
Just saw someone use the word “WPBigly” because the new White House site is running on WordPress and I am so not here for this at all. Dear WordPress we did a pretty good job of maintaining neutrality during past admins when they used our stuff, let’s not tarnish that now.
I need to progress and try some different kinds of content while employing the POSSE method: Photos and videos, for example.
I’m reading the commentary surrounding the Milo V. Simon and Schuster lawsuit drama and most of this is solid gold. Especially the resultant call-outs of the publishing industry for being perfectly willing to promote this crap.
I get that image recognition is all the rage right now, but is it too much to ask that platforms like Facebook allow users to enter alternative text for an image, and if it’s not provided, fall back to programmatic recognition?
Denise to Chip and Penny: “Don’t worry, daddy’s going to park you.” Wil to the general audience: “I’ll think about it.” Me to Wil: “You park those damn dogs!”
Current status: Playing the fortune cookie game with Wil and Denise where you add “Between the sheets” to the end of each fortune. Good times.
At last we learn why Donald Trump is so invested in Jerusalem being recognized as the capital of Israel by secular states. According to the Jerusalem Post, there’s a train station being built next to the Western Wall slated to be named after him. Dear Christians, please keep this in mind the next time someone tries to sell you a line, or your tempted to sell yourself a line, about how Donald Trump is a lover of Israel and the Jews.
That took much longer than it should have, but support was very helpful. Dear fellow Americans: you get so much further when you keep up your end of the customer service arrangement. Be just as professional as you’d like the person on the other end of that transaction to be.
Pray for me, I’m about to enter the vortex of Live Chat, where I get to explain that the only reason I’m asking for help is because the controls I need to use in the domain manager aren’t keyboard or screen reader accessible.
Dear everybody swearing they’ll pay Facebook, Twitter or Instagram $50 for normal timelines with no ads: There’s this thing. It’s called the open, independent web. Join us, and then, help your friends do the same. You can then use a plain-old RSS reader to follow your friends.
