Let's not over-complicate this.

Several Republican Senators are holding up the bipartisan Coronavirus emergency bill because they think the bill is too good for laid off Americans.

I was just remembering how glued I was to impeachment news updates once upon a time, years ago now.

Oswin wants something from me, but she is very warm and her purring is pleasant, so I have no incentive to give it to her.

Also he just licked my nostrils. WTF cat. WHAT.

Fezzik does not understand why I walked past the place where the Red Dot lives but did not make the Red Dot do its thing. He is bitterly disappointed in me.

ARGH. I hate disappointing this cat. He’s such a sweet lummox.

No noontime walk for meeeee today. It rains. A lot.

NPM had layoffs as part of their acquisition by Github., during this pandemic. Some great people are now looking for jobs.

A little over a week ago, the world rejoiced when GitHub announced their intention to acquire npm. A few days later, after nearly a year as a staff engineer at npm, I was laid off along with some other excellent engineers and employees.

Naturally, I am now looking for work.

Boeing CEO says if gov't forces it to give equity stake for bailout, "we just look at all the other options, and we’ve got plenty of them.”

If that's the case....why do they need a bailout at all? thehill.com/policy/finance/489

It’s not all fun and games at White River Watch. I had to set some people on fire and them hit them with a big sword to get them to leave me alone. But it is appropriately dark in here.

The next morning also dawns clear and sunny. My mood is only slightly dampened by meeting Nazeem.

Skyrim has a lot of cats in it. Some of them talk.

I spend the night in the Bannered Mare, which is off the chain busy with people *not* engaging in social distancing. (I think Lively Inns & Taverns is a little TOO lively here.)

Brace yourselves: a little bit more Skyrim Social Distancing playthrough incoming. I tag it all with if you want to mute it. I do *attempt* to be considerate. Sometimes.

It's incredible that this has to be said: Letting thousands of people needlessly suffer and die is wrong. It's also not a recipe for rescuing the economy.

Why I love fanfiction, item number 3 of about 3 million.

It’s not hard have women characters want things and by the end give them to them. All of them.

Let me be clear: Donald Trump knew about the threat the coronavirus posed and failed to act. It’s one of the most unjustifiable failures of presidential leadership in American history.

Since so many non-Californians keep asking: it has been an Cal OSHA reg since 2019 to keep N95s on hand for wildfires: 2 wks worth for employees. Had to wait until CA's statewide shelter-in-place went into effect before OSHA gave the okay to donate employee supplies. twitter.com/ItsTheBrandi/statu
