food 

Went grocery shopping, and local store /finally/ had pumpkin pie.

They did not have any in October, or any subsequent month I checked, but now, in January, they had some.

I'm not upset it took this long. I am just very happy to have some now.

Meta, fascists 

AWS is yanking Parler, which means it will probably go offline at least for a while.

This is an especially important time to be vigilant about fascists on the fediverse and not give any foothold to them. They'll be casting around for a new home rn and this mustn't become one.

Please use the #fediblock tag to alert for fascist instances.

I may not be on scholar.social any more, but the admin there continues to do good work.

There's "Morning Crew," and then there's "Saturday Morning Crew."

Anyway, good morning. I get to help with auditions for a Creative Arts Magnet High School today. :blobcoffee:

Think Fame (The movie and TV show), but with video production classes, too.

Reminder that it's still the polite thing to do to put US politics toots under the uspol CW.

uspol, potus, twitter 

I remember reading a news story saying that Twitter was locking Trumps account for 12 hours, starting when he deletes certain tweets that finally - finally - were a bridge too far for even their standards.

Trump's most recent visible tweet, as of right now, was posted at 3:13pm Eastern.

There are two tweets after that marked "no longer available."

Everything else is radio silence.

Too little, too late for me to have faith in the platform, but I appreciate the gesture.

Pinecil is back in stock! This is not a drill!

One of the things they don't tell you about getting old is you're going to have to deal with people getting nostalgic for things you still consider to be relatively new.

Student: Are you going to have lunch or teach another class?

Me: Yes.
