Mpls Pol :boost_ok: 

It's Municipal Election Season in Minneapolis, MN!

This is what activates me every 4 years: Local Elections.

ICYMI, :birdsite: user @Dbrauer has a nice spreadsheet tracking who's running for what office

I personally tend to vote and follow candidates with my heart. I'm no poli-scientist, but I am a resident.

Any and all discourse accepted and encouraged.
Just be sure to CW appropriately!

Food (instapot experimenting) 

This shouldn't be good but here we are:

- 1 box of aldi mac and cheese (the kind with sauce instead of powder)
~ 2/3 cup red lentils
- 1 Jalapeno
- 3 slices turkey bacon, chopped
- 1 small sweet onion, chopped.

Add lentils and jalapeno with some water to instapot for 4 mintues.

Manually depressurize, add everything else, a splash more water, and pressurize for another ~3 minutes.

This was one tasty mistake!

I call it "Split Mac n Cheese" or
"Mac n Split Peas".

I just came across this website that is a nice compendium of the trails in the MSP Metro (Counties of Anoka, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Washington).


I am capable and worthy of the future I dream of.

Someone recently asked for music suggestions. Here’s mine I’d like to share. Pygmalion by John Ozbay. Instrumental piano, sometimes with strings.

I am healthy I am sane. I am wearing sweat pants for convenience, not because I am giving up. Comfort is a virtue.

Is anyone available to meet somewhere to chat IRL at any point tonight between now and ~8pm?

What is anyone Listening to right now?

My room is too silent.

Alc, holiday. Sad but true 

I’m surprised and not happy that I’m drunk already today, but I’m very grateful to everyone who taught me the things my parents should have.

I’m grateful for this community and the ability to pick my own path through life

What does one call the job/profession of User Experience?

I find myself complaining a lot about how websites function or about my navigation experience, and perhaps that's a path I can start thinking about pursuing.

No filter on this photo from yesterday. Never mind the road, Such subtle colors. If I had to describe it, I’d call it peaches and cream.

Coping with Anxiety 

Sharing with you all these pictures of the sky I’ve captured when awestruck by beauty.

We all live under the same atmosphere. The sky is a constant reminder of that.

Peace to you.

The skies these mornings are absolutely stunning. So gorgeous!

I have been boosted! Hooray.

Bad that the State of Minnesota and City of Minneapolis had bad info about the place I went to and me and 3 other parties walked away very disappointed.

Good that as I was headed home, I saw the Co-op Creamery with a "Vaccines Here" sign, and I walked in and got my boost!


This is quite the moon tonight.

I’m not going to make it to midnight, but this was a good day and I think fondly of moon phases.

Are there any mspsocialites that want to attempt to see this lunar eclipse tonight?

I can’t imagine it’s a good idea to intentionally disrupt my sleep schedule, but on the other hand, what’s one night compared to 560 years?

That’s what, once in 150 lifetimes?

It might be a positive tonight.

Back on my bullshit. 💯

Also, lol that bullshit auto corrects to buckshot.
