In Warren's defense, it is less than an hour before dinner. It's a behavioral free for all and I know that.

<- although as I typed this, guess who hopped into my lap and smacked the glasses of my face

"He's one of those food-obsessed ginger toms that you absolutely cannot reason with." —someone describing their cat except that this is clearly about Warren

I'd have more sympathy if the clearest pavement I walked on wasn't the goddamn roadway.

58 minutes ago. I left my apartment 58 minutes ago and am only now getting on a bus.

Warren is testing whether or not the treats might be awarded proportionally, I guess.

This? This is a treatless table kitty. Do not pity him, for he knows the price of his table brashness.

"Only floor kitties get treats! Table kitties don't get treats!" —me, daily, as I shove a cat paw away from my plate

It looks like the delay will add a total of 45 minutes to my morning commute. So... Almost two hours today.

I need to come up with a better strategy.

I was going to have to wait 9 minutes to transfer to this other bus but now I will miss it by 10 and then wait for 20 for the next. Don't take infrequent lines, my babies. Learn from the mistakes I have made.

A community centered on the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, and their surrounding region.

An alternative to social networks that connected people in the region that have either died away or driven people off with unethical or anti-social policies.

MSP Social is a noncommercial community service, hosted and administered by @lawremipsum. Users should not feel obligated to contribute financially to the project. But contributions to defray server costs and/or for possible future expansion are welcome at Patreon, Liberapay or via PayPal to lawremipsum at gmail.

We financially support local community-oriented organizations. Currently, we support WedgeLive, Streets MN, Grease Rag and The MN Tool Library. Future support of community-oriented organizations will be determined by accountholders, donors and the admin, and is likely to be focused on groups that advance the values of the donors and encourage underrepresented voices in community and urban planning spheres.
