I did one of those things where I round up a group of people and make them answer questions for my amusement. And I made them do it live, in a hotel room. With @HollyGoDarkly, @Legopolis, @helenewecker, @rakdaddy, @navahw, and ¥Warren Frey. theincomparable.com/gameshow/9

Closed out George R.R. Martin's Hugo losers party by dancing to Robin Thicke while wearing silly leprechaun hats (required garb for Hugo winners).

This was a GREAT night.

I...I just won another Hugo Award. But this time, I'm HERE. And that means I'm crying. I feel like I'm made of magic.

Also seeing the continuation of what I noticed months ago -- with folks posting slightly more personal, introspective, less performative things here than on twitter. Still like it. :-)

A tutor who tooted the flute
Tried to teach two young tooters to toot;
Said the two to the tutor,
“Is it harder to toot, or
To tutor two tooters to toot?”

I got to hold this year's Hugo Award trophy at the rehearsal, and IT. IS. GORGEOUS. It's cast bronze and *heavy*.

It legit is a huge honour to even be nominated, but after seeing this year's base, I really wanna win.

The magic the gathering guy once said that they ban some cards from play because there is a power imbalance and if you dont ban those cards it's as good as banning every other card.
I think this is a good analogue for all communities.

I've been idly thinking about setting aside App Launch Map and finding a "real" job. I wonder if I'm really qualified to do what I'm trying to do and if what I have to impart is valuable.

Then I watch a series of "developer insights" videos from Apple full of buzzwords and I realize that there really is a huge gap here.

Anyway. Hi I have imposter syndrome please buy my product when it launches.

Toots with content warnings are fantastic except for one thing: I find my curiosity is often stronger than my common sense.

Just finished my only 2 panels of . They both went well! Now I just have to stress about the Hugo Awards tomorrow. 😂 😭

Anxiety-brain at a con is never fun. Taking my meds and listening to a little Gamma World (on Total Party Kill) to get me ready for my first panel. (It's about tabletop gaming!)

Here’s a photo of a big LEGO Millennium Falcon in my LEGO baseball park.

Also just saw dozens and dozens (hundreds?) of bikes go past--many with sweet flashing neon lights, and some with sound systems and pumping music. San Jose, you're alright.
