I too have been ignoring Spotify's apparently magical Discover Weekly these past several weeks, not because I was feeling algorithmicly manipulated, but because I've just had more of a hankering to listen to whole albums. Unfortunately, unlike Phil Gyford, even when I was doing Discover Weekly regularly, it didn't seem to surface anyone in particular for me. Maybe I should try again.
Watched The Right Stuff, which I had never seen, for the obvious reason, and was very pleased to have done so. 🎥
I was tempted by a fully electric car earlier this summer, but the cruel fact is that in a city or apartments, in which we have no access to a garage (or "box" as they are known here) there just wouldn't be any way to re-fuel. So I got a hybrid. Then, over the past few weeks, the city has been hard at work installing two charging stations on the corner. Currently they are not yet functional, and occupied by gas-guzzling SUVs.
When they are functional, I wonder how the city plans to keep other cars from occupying the spaces. I suspect they won't.
I have not yet been bitten by this particular version of helpfulness gone awry, but I am aware it could happen, and I agree with Peter that there really ought to be a simple way to indicate that someone is no longer available to be shared with.
The past month of micro posts served to reinforce my belief in my need for extrinsic motivation.
I absolutely refuse to be bullied by a “random” word generator into using a word like mask. #mbnov is a hoax.
Dilemma is one of those words that never looks correctly spelled to me. I dither between dilemma and dilemna for reasons that escape me.
