I’m not proud of it but today I scheduled my first time donating blood. No excuse and I’m looking forward to it. I created an account with Canadian Blood Services and installed their app hoping this will remind me to do it regularly.

What spurred me to finally do it is the frequent radio ads they run. There is currently a real urgency for blood across Canada. Combined with the alarming hospital staff shortages, and how helpless I feel, donating blood really seems like the very least I can do.

I’ve been working on installing floating shelves from Urbandi in my dining room. A quick thing turned into a project after I discovered that the wall is rounded, which you can see on the left. Had to cut the drywall, shim the support bracket, and caulk the whole thing.

Happy it’s done and I highly recommend if you’re looking for strong shelves. ✔️

I educated my physical therapist today on the more ethical options available for social media platforms. One person at a time.

I’m going to make a little shameless plug. If you like pretty pictures of nature trails, I regularly post photos on my PixelFed account. You can follow from here using Just put up a fresh batch.

My partner and I are supposed to move to Ireland, from the USA, in a month. Still haven't found any housing. Gah!

Anyone know anyone who may be able to help us out? We're both artists/academics, and my partner has a job already at UCD in Dublin. We just need a place to land, even if its temporary. House sitting, apartment, house rental, private rooms, we're open to anything within 1 hour commute to Dublin via public transit.

If you know anyone who could help we would greatly appreciate it! We're almost in despair-mode 😅

I don't have a lot of followers on here, but feel free to boost this post if you're comfortable doing that!

City cycling dangers 

Cars assume they own the road here. My city prides itself on being bike friendly but really, only if the bar is very very low. I watch the channel on YouTube regularly to restore my sanity.

I’m thinking that potato chips crumbs are produced at the bottom of the bag by the weight of chips at the top of the bag pressing down. Is that a fair assumption? Do you think there would be less crumbs if bags were boxed horizontally instead of vertically?

Happy Canada Day, which as far as I know, it’s a day where Canadians celebrate the invention of Poutine, and I 100% support it.

On this Canada Day, I am grateful to live in a country where abortions are considered by law to be an essential part of life. Have a good one everyone. 🇨🇦

I’m not sure but I have a feeling that maybe Firefox would like me to enable Pocket. Could be wrong.

Ridiculous, entitled news title of the day:

“'It's just about survival at this point': High gas prices affecting Canadians' summer travel plans”

I don’t think this person knows what survival means.

I had to request an M1 at work because Xcode was threatening liftoff every time I built our app on Intel. That is not progress. We get all this power, and instead our software becomes ever more bloated, because look all the CPU we can use now! When Java IDEs launch and build faster than Xcode, you know we missed a turn somewhere.

What a waste.

Here's a take that is not going to be popular in my circles: I don't understand computing anymore. A windowing system in 2022 that cannot run on anything less powerful than an M1 is over-engineered, pure and simple. Come on, it's overlapping windows. We're not sending rockets to Mars here.
