A view from inside a vehicle with raindrops on the windshield focusing on a green tractor moving ahead on a dirt road with a rural landscape and a cloudy sky in the background.

Easter vacation, with an epic trip up north (that went MUCH better than expected), and back to little work in the city.

  • 🚌 Family Easter Weekend! That was, obviously, the event of the week. Of the month!

  • 🦷 Wednesday was a VERY busy day. A visit to the dentist, and a quick portrait shoot. Wow. Photos on the way to both events. On Thursday I edited the handful of photos I would then send, but no day topped Wednesday in terms of busyness. A very slow week. Again.

  • πŸ” I had a delicious burger at one of the Dallas Burger Club joints (yay for truffle mayo), and remembered a conversation I had with movieStar a couple of weeks ago. She noted we’re not up-to-date any more, when it comes to hip places. We have no idea where people are eating these days, and new places are opening every day!

  • πŸ“Ί On the TV streaming front, I managed to finish Griselda. Tokyo Vice, and Shōgun, the usual suspects, are on the one-episode-a-week routine. So I started watching House of Ninjas, and it’s actually kinda fun, in a not-too-serious way. It will do!

  • ⭐️ mbApr is on. Days 01, 02, 03, and 04 have been posted. Maybe I’ll manage a few more.

  • πŸ“± Moved phone service provider again, after a couple of weeks on the other one. I was entitled to a promotional monthly price when I moved, but something happened on their end, and I didn’t get it. They said I should have, they’d check and fix the situation. I was told they’d get back to me in 72 hours. They did not. Ever again! So, since I also had an eSIM from a competing provider installed, exactly the same cost, and better network coverage,… I moved. The process of moving is so easy these days, there is really no reason not to, if you’re not happy.

  • 🍜 I (well, MrBatsu is) back at slinging links at people. It all starts at another Scribbles hosted blog, and gets pushed to Mastodon using the wonderful new EchoFeed service (currently in beta and invite-only), by Mr Robb Knight.I repurposed one of Jarrod’s wonderful Shortcuts (this one), and that gets me the full post in the clipboard, ready to paste into Scribbles. A way to do it from Drafts (or directly) would be awesome, but there’s no API (or any other way) yet. Still, happy to have this going again.
