|22.7 15:05||@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 https://bringmethenews.com/minnesota-news/here-is-minnesotas-covid-19-update-for-tuesday-july-21|
|9.7 13:36||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? (poll results)
|4.6 08:13||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.|
|31.5 13:03||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?|
|31.5 13:03||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.|
|31.5 12:27||RT @kfaiFMradio: ask for accountability of Walz, Frey, Freeman et al on the clear and documented assaults on credentialed journalists and passive citizens following your orders to stay in their homes.|
|17.4 10:27||Oh, it's the dudes picketing the governor's mansion. Meh. Freedom still includes the freedom to do really stupid shit, I suppose|
|17.4 10:24||??? RT @realDonaldTrump: LIBERATE MINNESOTA!|
|30.3 10:23||RT @mnhealth: We’re working with #CovidNearYou to gather data about #COVID-19. Sign up at http://www.covidnearyou.org to report how you’re feeling—whether you’re healthy or have symptoms. This will help us learn more about the virus so we can make decisions about how to best protect Minnesotans.|
|18.3 22:18||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.|
|13.3 14:34||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.

Trump - 137047 votes
Warren - 114746 votes
I just found that surprising

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

|26.7.19 13:27||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!|

No, wait! I mean "I was home the entire time!

|6.11.18 22:41||Aw, I was kinda hoping Sen. Smith winning would mean she'd stop doing three tweet speeches|
|Friday was dominated by the rose garden, followed by another awesome barcade and a bar that Sarah worked at which ended up overrun with Minnesotans and former Minnesotans|
|#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 transparent...at 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. (Circa July 2004, May 2008, June 2012, last Monday)|
|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.|
