I've accomplished so many things already today but I had to get up at 4:45 a.m. to do them so basically everything is a haze of sleepy resentment.

@yeahno my grandfather got me up to go fishing at some ungodly hour like this when I was a kid and I could never understand how one could derive enjoyment from the exercise.

@lawremipsum I only enjoy it when it means I'm heading to the airport to go somewhere glamorous. Instead, I got blood drawn and edited an HTML newsletter template. So… I'm on the verge of arson (as per usual).

@lawremipsum Also, omg fishing is so relentlessly boring. And now I've completely disqualified myself from ever holding statewide office (haha i crossed that line a long long long time ago).

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.

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.
