"Its not up to us to apologize for the wounds you have gleefully inflicted upon us and our friends. You poured the gasoline, you lit the match. You burned this to the ground." --villages-news.com/2020/12/27/i

That's the energy I'm feeling this weekend.

If you haven't watched Death to 2020 on Netflix...it is sorta the perfect send-off for this hell year.

Reviewing the notes from a meeting last week and ran across this in the middle:
"iii. Two people on a Bird scooter went by Jer's window in the snow, he was impressed"

So, if you're ever wondering what it's like to be on a team with me...this...pretty much sums it up.

Given that most actual social gatherings are completely irresponsible, how are y'all planning on spending New Year's Eve?

Insomnia is not a thing whose return I welcome...but here we are...

Wonder Woman 1984 was really enjoyable. I wish I could have seen it in a theater...but it was still well worth it.

On November 24th, I ordered a stack of stamps from the Post Office--where stamps are born.

On the 9th, I was reminded of my order when it shipped--ostensibly the gestation period is 2 weeks for stamps.

Today, those stamps are on the way and "might be late".

Current mood: prepping late gifts for shipping...

To add to the indignities that this year has wrought, almost every single holiday gift we're sending including cards will be late this year. A first world problem, but, disappointing nonetheless.

I am deriving a silly amount of schadenfreude reading the caterwauling of folks that bet on a Trump election win now that Betfair has settled up with Biden betters.

After 4 years of obnoxious behavior, I'm only slightly ashamed at the joy their consternation brings me.

I think it's pretty impressive that even in this incredibly dark timeline, Taylor Swift managed to put out two incredible albums full of gorgeous material.

I managed to put pants on most days and considered myself accomplished.

Way to fuck up the curve, Taylor!

Hanukkah sameach to those celebrating! :)

At about 10 hours in, Cyberpunk 2077 is fun. On the PC, it's glitchy and a resource hog...but not worse than expected. Gameplay is good but not great. Driving is actually terrible and stealth is not well done...but the story is great. I'd say B- so far.

I just found out there's a website that scientifically determines if you're attractive or not.

Y'all, scientifically speaking I have what's known as "a great sense of humor"

After @aglance_ did exactly all of the work, our decorations are up and look beautiful. Happy holidays folks!

Our ornaments skew in the direction of "My Little Pony" pretty severely!

To say that 2020 has been a nightmare of a year would be an understatement of epic proportions...so I've brought back my Best Christmas Album of All Time with a third volume for your listening pleasure (or, mockery, sometimes we need that too!) jerlance.com/2020/12/the-best-

After more than two decades, I finally got to listen to a new @TooMuchJoyHQ album...twice...it was everything I'd hoped. "Mistakes Were Made" officially drops in March (I think)...and it'll be worth the wait. <3

I feel like Black Friday is as good a day as any to remind: there is no such thing as ethical consumption under capitalism and there's no behavior, decision, or belief that is completely unproblematic in modern society.

Do your best and exercise compassion. That's all we have.
