Bought a cheap refurbished 2DS for my three year old daughter. She struggled playing on her own, so we played Mario Kart copilot. I steered while she held Ⓐ. She had a blast.

I’ve set up Climate Clock Bot to cross post on Mastodon: @ClimateClockBot 🌱🌎🔥⚠️

Merry Christmas everyone! 🎄 Solidarity with everyone missing their family today, and wishing you as much holiday cheer as possible in this dark difficult year.

Spent the morning watching pelicans, seals, and dolphins feeding off the coast of Will Rogers beach. Despite everything going on, California can be such a magical place.
