Mpls Restaurant Weirdness 

About to go full Pepe Silvia to find what the hell is actually happening to Minneapolis steakhouse Butcher & the Boar.

I have never seen a game with such a cozy chill aesthetic paired with such a brutally hard combat system

It turns out that all it takes to get me to sit through the opening cutscenes of a JRPG is “make it literally a Studio Ghibli film”

Today we salute Jenny Kanz, biking the streets of St. Paul and working to study and control mosquito populations, keeping our storm sewers free of annoying bugs! :blobsalute: 🚲 :flag_stp:

Back from camping, while I get over allergy fallout by melting into a couch please enjoy this hairy woodpecker going absolutely ham on a tree right above my head

the way you can tell stardew valley is a power fantasy is that you can compete against children for the not-easter egg hunt holiday and if you win (you will win) they give you a hat and 1000 dollars

“Horse de-wormer” is obviously very funny but I feel like we haven’t explored the comic implications of “monthly beef-flavored dog chewable”

This giant trout is still there in Preston, MN, on the way to my grandma's house. After, I moved to Minnesota, I sent a picture of it back to my friend Preston in Utah who loved to fish (and still does, last I heard)

Travel Memories 

Most West: Turns out that Eugene, OR is farther west than any of the other "west coast" places I've been, and according to my phone, the train ride that took us near Junction City was west-er still.

So please enjoy a few seconds of the Amtrak ride between Eugene and Portland 🚆

Most South: Got invited to a friend's wedding in Puerto Vallarta, and the fond memories of the trip lasted quite a bit longer than the marriage did ( 😬 ). I would go back just for the tacos, any time

Most East:

Measuring "Farthest East/West" raises some interesting philosophical and geopolitical questions, but here's a photo of the only time this American has been East of the Greenwich meridian, Leeds Castle near Maidstone, UK.

The most East I've been in the US is either Maine (as an infant) or Boston (as a teenager) and I don't have photos of either, only fond memories of walking the freedom trail and eating pot pie and visiting colleges that would later reject my application

British Columbia is in fact north of Minnesota, however.

Most North: Vancouver, BC, Canada. Here's an unintentionally arty photo my friend took of me in Stanley Park

Saw the meme going around about "what's the farthest you've gone N/S/E/W" and if there's anything I love it's looking at maps and doing extra credit, so here's A Photo Tour of My Travels in Various Cardinal Directions.

Most North ( :flag_us_mn: honorable mention) Grand Marais! I stopped here on a camping trip earlier this summer. Lovely little town!

Fun fact: over 50% of Canadians live south of here

Since we’re not sure when he was actually born, we’ve always celebrated Clark’s birthday on August 26th, when he came to live with us.

The fact that it’s International Dog Day is perfect, but believe it or not, total coincidence.

Went disc golfing with some pals yesterday, something I do like once a year with absolutely no ambition to improve. Both my friends got personal bests on the course though, plus we made a new friend in the trees!
