I'm switching my Mastodon activities to @ jean @ micro.welltempered.net, my Micro.blog user ID. I'm following Mastodon users via the Micro.blog timeline, and have turned off cross-posting from Micro.blog to this zeppelin.flights instance. This account will be inactive at least temporarily, so I can test whether I like using my own Micro.blog account for Mastodon.

tl;dr Follow @ jean @ micro.welltempered.net.

[Spaces in user names because otherwise the "jean" name defaults to zeppelin flights.]

Ada was spayed today, a recommended procedure to avoid future health issues. The vet was concerned because she was really slow to recover appetite and normal body temp after surgery, but she is eating her hay and that’s what you want to see.

The Kids Are Alright, the film that confirmed me as a huge fan of The Who when it was released in 1979, is on Amazon Prime now. I really enjoy rock documentaries like this. 🇬🇧 🎸 imdb.com/title/tt0079400/

Apple’s Entrepreneur Camp For Women is a bold move that I am excited about. If your app company has a woman founder, co-founder, or CEO, you could be eligible for hands-on training, ongoing support and tickets to WWDC. developer.apple.com/entreprene

Guinea pigs restored to their rightful place in the main room of the house. I missed them. They missed proximity to the fridge.

I moved Grace and Ada to the office today to make room for 12 Thanksgiving guests. This setup is not long-term, unless Guinea Pig Wheekly becomes my only podcast gig.

Need a romaine alternative? Escarole is a nice leafy green that can be served cold or wilted. I share my recipe on The Incomparable Thanksgiving Draft podcast, and it’s posted on the site along with other recipes from my podcast comrades. theincomparable.com/theincompa

When I was little, I’d get a lollipop as a reward after visit to the doctor. For Grace and Ada, wheat grass after a successful vet checkup.

Trader Joe’s does not judge. (I’m not a fan anymore, but sweet potatoes+marshmallows was my favorite as a kid. Apparently haters have sprouted up in the intervening decades.)

Not too enthusiastic about our annual checkup. Even though Dr. Mark Burgess is the best guinea pig vet.

I've enabled [Activity Pub support](help.micro.blog/2018/activityp) on my Micro.blog-hosted domain. For starters, I'm using it to follow a few folks who are mainly posting on Mastodon via Micro.blog. But I'm not ready to switch my Mastodon ID just yet.

If you follow me at @jean, you'll follow my Micro.blog posts via Mastodon.

It might sound confusing 🤯, but eventually I expect to do everything for Mastodon via Micro.blog. Brave new social media world!

The kilogram is in the news, and it reminds me of the song “Kilogram” by my favorite musical nerd sister duo, The Doubleclicks. Warning: You might find yourself feeling sad for that kilogram in France. youtu.be/VHd4HPmz5…

The new episode of The Weekly Review podcast is focused on staying sane during the holidays. And with Thanksgiving coming up, James Dempsey and I also take a moment to be thankful: for the listeners and friends who make this podcast possible, and for our favorite software too!

Got any holiday hacks you want to share?


The 2019 World Naked Bike Ride Portland date will be for June 29.

File under: Time to Plan My “Costume,” or Time To Make a Plan To Be Out of Town.

As a Lyft driver, I just don’t want to get stuck behind hundred of these cyclists, so I do like to put it on my calendar. oregonlive.com/entertainment/i

Let's try that again but not locked...

Most of my activity is likely going to be via my micro.blog account, which now has ActivityPub integration meaning you can follow and interact with me right through that account! Follow me there: @droct !

At karaoke, they have a handy version of Happy Birthday 🎂 in the list, of course. We are having another awesome @verso birthday celebration.

Kellyoke! November edition of Core Audio Karaoke usually coincides with @verso’s birthday week. We are at @voiceboxpdx East and will likely be here until midnight. And there are cupcakes. 🎉🎂🎤

For Winston, birthday greetings, @cleverdevil
