I still think every single one of these bird photos is absolutely breathtaking and I highly recommend giving them a look.

I've been on Mastodon for a while now, so that means it's time for an .

I love birds, tacos, dogs, and bicycling, but I struggle to climb hills. I'm a Seattle-based instructional designer creating internal training for a tech company, though my degree is in Computer Engineering. I'm also an atheist, liberal, daughter of a Cuban immigrant, and I suffer from frequent migraine headaches.

I post about , politics (I CW), migraines, work, and random life stuff.

..and if you all want to look at a bobby car race where they use the original cars and not the highly tuned racing cars, mixed with a lot of questionable bavarian folklore, you could watch this youtube video:

Today I learned:

Germans are engaging in the sport "Bobby Car Racing". there are several official race teams, racers are children and adults, and for higher speeds, the bobby cars get modified. axles and steering unit is enforced and the car is often filled with concrete. the speed record is 108 km/h (67 mph)

My manager got these for almost everyone on the team because they're just so damn punny and also we drink a lot of tea and have multiple Spanish speakers on the team. We laughed!

I need opinions on how wearable you all think this cowl would be. I like the way it looks, but am concerned about comfort and utility as a neck warmer. Please help a knitter out! ravelry.com/patterns/library/a

The building just shook and I don't know if it was a very small earthquake or very large construction equipment.

Had my first mandolin lesson with Carol today. We worked a lot on how to hold things correctly and she told me I have baby fingers (:blobcheeky: ). I have directions to practice scales, picking warm-ups, a simple song, and to clip my nails even shorter.

Completed clue 3 of ye olde Extremely Horny Shawl. The second version lurks in the background, reminding me that it is both the cooler color palette and also the more neglected, and will also be SO FUCKING HUGE.

I think I just realised why I find Slack and Microsoft Teams so much harder to dig up information in than plain old email. My email centres me as the user: I have a collection of messages that were to or CC me, and I make my own choices about how to file them and which ones to keep or discard. Group chats rely on someone else's decisions about what goes in which group, so of course that's less intuitive to me, and include all the threads that weren't relevant to me.

It's only Kobe beef if the cows live in the Hyogo region of Japan. Otherwise it's called sparkling Wagyu.
