Pulled up my quick-n-dirty "portal" page this morning to find that the nearest city traffic cam is celebrating New Years' Eve pretty colorfully.

All day, I've been walking back and forth past a package on the table. "Oh it's Friday. I should get that to FedEx before the weekend."

All day I've been walking back and forth past the recycling. "Oh it's Monday. I don't need to put the recycling out until tomorrow."

📚 round-up 2020 (tl;dr: not much)

I feel like I didn't read anything this year; couldn't concentrate on anything longer than a cereal box. What I did read, I barely remember. The latest Stephenson and Gibson, Bayern Agenda, Jemisin and Chambers’s short stories? Yeah, sorta recall all of those.

The Murderbot novel, yes, good stuff.

The three pop-sci books I got for free from NetGalley, they were all okay.

The Haunting of Tram Car 015 by P. Djèlí Clark and Susanna Clarke’s Piranesi were my favorites.

excellent way to waste a Sunday (and about 300 more Sundays to come 🥷🥷🥷🥷)

I can send Spotify to HomePod using Airplay. Nice.

Press Stop and go eat breakfast.

Put on sneakers to go for a walk. Grab phone and put Apple earbuds in.

HomePod starts playing Spotify. 😑

a stocking-stuffer from Mom. (There were also Mandalorian-branded chip-clips(!?) under the tree. Must’ve been a Disney table at TJ Maxx this season. 🤓)

This morning's hard reset (the fourth? fifth?) seems to have improved matters. HomePod Mini no longer vanishes from the Airplay “target" list (or whatever) when I tap the top. Still to test: is the unwanted-pausing of the aTV in the den fixed too? If so maybe I'll keep it.
