@TheFakeWill1 MDH had a statement about a "data management system transition" over the weekend which assigned some cases to the "wrong" day. It's not on their site today but was yesterday and quoted in various spots such as

Nuanced RT @EricLuceroMN: It was recently reported Gov. Walz is considering a unilateral edict with a stroke of his pen to MANDATE masks upon everybody in Minnesota.

Do you support Gov. Walz continuing to usurp the Legislative Branch, violate the Constitution & create his own laws as an unchecked king?

Andy broke the news to me that the last Fuddrucker's in Minnesota did not survive the pandemic, but if I wanted to participate in the auction for their fixtures, now was the time. I just don't have room for a Hobart or their enormous restroom mirror (or DO I.....hmm) but I must admit, the idea that I could have their "cheese warmer" in my kitchen carries appeal.....

Capitalizing "potato" is KINDA a typo RT @MSP_Traffic: Evidently WB Hwy 212 is closed in Chaska between Hwy 41 and Engler due to a Potato spill. Not a typo.

RT @MrFesser: What steps are being taken to identify officers and soldiers who shot and arrested journalists and people in their own homes? Will those people be relieved of duty for any amount of time? Face any consequences? What will those be? When, EXACTLY, can we expect to see them?

RT @MrFesser: I want to hear something concrete from @GovTimWalz today about how police misconduct last night is going to be addressed. Not "I'm sorry", or "I take responsibility", or (god help us) "We're going to send in more troops". Enough platitudes and escalation of force. CONSEQUENCES.

In news nobody's paying attention to - possibly rightly so - Governor Weld, who attempted to primary President Trump, finally threw in the towel. It would have been nice to have that vector to cast a protest vote, but the Minnesota GOP only put one name on the ballot along with a "write-in" space.

RT @mnhealth: Today, @GovTimWalz and @MDHCommMalcolm announced strategies to slow the spread of #COVIDー19 in Minnesota, including canceling or postponing events until further notice. More information is on our website:

WOW. Guess they didn't hire either of us.

It took them five months and five days to decide not to fill that req.

I suppose I'd apply again but I may be too busy with the new job to talk to them by that time.

Holy buckets, Kim and I strapped into Pikachuu v1 and left Silicon Valley for the Twin Cities fifteen years ago. (EDIT: 15 years ago tomorrow morning, actually - I better fix this status!) SO glad for all my Minnesota (and beyond) people I've met since then! But also a little sad I haven't hardly spent any time with my California people since then. I still love you all!

#tbt This grouping of terribly unattractive head shots are every license I've had in Minnesota. The second time I had my photo taken I had unwittingly worn the exact same shirt as the first time, so I made sure to keep that streak going forever...although that shirt is pretty ratty these days. Back then I never weighed myself, so I'd just add 10 pounds every time I re-upped, figuring that would be close. Looking at my fat face for a few years on the most recent license DID give me some motivation to at least put a battery back in the scale and get to work. I'm not REALLY walking around at 185 right now, but that's because of all the muscle I've put on which is keeping me from getting there. Yeah, let's go with that. While I'm being fully my last physical, it was confirmed that I'm really more like 5'11½". The beard isn't THAT bad but we'll see how I feel about having it on there for the next four years, barring any government action mandating we all get some "enhanced ID" before this one expires.

Here's a progress check on my current Kallax adventures. I don't think I've ever sweat this much in a Minnesota January as I have the past 24 hours. Looking at what's left to organize...I think I may need to make one more IKEA trip as I've figured out two more good places in this room for storage. Also, does anybody need a million boxes? Honestly I'd keep at it tonight but I have a date with Nightosaur.

As I marveled at the car ahead of me turning onto University Ave from Eustis St and rechecked a third time to make sure I was really seeing what I thought I saw, I pondered just how good a story it must have taken for the owner to convince the Minnesota DVS that not only was it wholly appropriate to have a vanity license plate reading "BDSM," but that THEY deserved to put it on THEIR car.
