    😹 We hit 80F today and it was really nice.
  7. For an Immigration Policy class I'm taking: America for Americans: A History of Xenophobia in the United States by Erika Lee Border Wars: Inside Trump's Assault on Immigration by Julie Hirschfeld Davis Pretty depressing shit, as you might surmise.

    There are some good steaks out there; I used to eat filet mignon most of the time because it comes in small portions and sometimes wrapped in bacon (tournedos) which I like. But nowadays when I go to the trouble of having a steak in a restaurant it's usually a ribeye or a NY Strip if it's a good place for steak. But I mean trim, aging, and cooking count for a lot with steak. So I don't tend to eat it unless I'm somewhere I trust the kitchen. I'm sorry you were disappointed but it's probably just as well, given how horrible it is for the planet.
  9. Are they paying everyone?
  10. The Trump conspiracy theorists are all saying it was a Chinese plot, so fair is fair I guess.
  11. If you have the budget for a cheap new car, think about getting your *used* car through a dealer (Subaru or Toyota e.g.). Since you are not a gearhead, it will give you a little peace of mind that it’s in good shape maybe? also potentially recourse if it’s a lemon. May be able to get reasonable financing also. Re Fiat 500s: I wanted one, too, because KEWT but research led me to decide it wasn’t a good long-term option and prob not worth buying used. Chevy Sparks are cute af and cheap on gas. Strongly suggest a hybrid if you can find/afford one at the sweet spot wrt battery life (research this!) as gas will only ever get more expensive.
  12. If this isn't over in about two months, we will need to find TP somewhere, but my shopping habits (and living here in the US with a big-ass garage and a second fridge) mean that I didn't have to do too much to prepare, although my pantry generally speaking was at a low ebb until yesterday. We won't be eating anything too fancy, but we'll be OK for a while.
  13. Scott’s leaning towards staying home and saving the 💵
  14. they only have resale tickets?! there was a lot of availability when we got ours
  15. Yay! Oh I reckon we can work it out
  16. Arizona friends @heavyboots @xen0phile @InfinityCircuit am I missing anyone? @s.smigiel and I are going to the Canucks/Coyotes game on April 2, and opted to stay in Scottsdale near the zoo, as being not too far from Xen0 and we have other friends close to Scottsdale. So we have all day Friday available, and Saturday morning, and if anyone wants to go to the hockey game, get some tickets! they are not as expensive as they are in Vancouver. We are in section 216.

  20. OK! Here they are. As it happens, there's 20% off until midnight tomorrow (Eastern time I think?) Profits to whichever charities the artists prefer unless they'd rather have the $$ (does anyone have fuldog's email? he doesn't follow me on twitter) https://shop.spreadshirt.com/bombasticloudmouth/screaming+fist?idea=5e45ef20f9376417e07c6264&color=black
