Pinned toot

Hello! Longtime Robbinsdale resident here, I live right across the street from where the Blue Line extension will (supposedly, hopefully, eventually) go in.

I built my own house here, took me three years. I can maybe help with home maintenance-y Qs?

Married a Canadian, have 2 small kids, enjoy handcrafting websites, learning LISP (Racket), & publishing little books.

Very stoked about this local instance! Found out about it via @djsundog and @t54r4n1 ; My 1st acct is @joeld

MN stay at home

Frisbee in our tiny backyard with the kids.

Asking for my 20yo sister who is facing a layoff: what are the places that are hiring now in MN? Grocery stores, amazon, I’m sure? How about any kind of emergency services work not requiring specialized training?

We are both so dog tired and I have to be at work at 6am tomorrow. Plan is for both of us to try and go to sleep as soon as we put the kids down. Strongly resisting tea/coffee cravings…just 1.5 more hours left

Jess randomly throwing up with no other symptoms. Trying to keep the kids quiet downstairs using my favorite diversion tactic, playing Stardew Valley

I can report that Menards does not sell whole bean coffee. It’s like they are coldly complicit in the worst stereotypes about their own customers.

Going to overcome my irrational revulsion for political events and get myself over to the Sanders/Omar rally tonight.

Still struggling to grok blessed/cursed/blursedness in memes tbqh
