@editor I know. I was quoting someone on another platform. :)

@editor it's cute but how do you expect to make any money off that?
@MediaBaron Those tomahawks are perfect for the Instagram Age, but I'd feel pretty sheepish ordering one. I like how at one of the restaurants cited, the steak is brought out for oohing and aahing (and the gram), then taken back to the kitchen for slicing and sharing among four diners. Makes more sense!
And oh yeah, I'm drooling too.
Story in the Star-Advertiser about the tomahawk steak trend in Hawaii. The writer didn't coin "Flintstonian," but this is the first time I've read it and it cracked me up. Nice use of language. Disagree with some of the writer's other decisions but Flintonian makes up for most of them.
Tootdon, the Mastodon iOS app I've been using, abruptly announced it was shutting down yesterday. No explanation. I originally selected it based on a Lifehacker recommendation, but a Google search for it just now indicates it may have been tracking users without informing them, according to articles from spring 2018. Time to look for a new app!
@Vagobond I just leave it open in a tab all day whenever I'm working at my desk, as I do with Tweetdeck, another Mastodon account, FB, and two Slacks. I don't know do social media for excitement; I kinda do it for presence.
My former boss is going to jail for up to 30 months. I have seriously mixed feelings about this.
Oh, and last night someone sent me a flyer inviting me to his goodbye party. It says, "See you in 30 months (or less)!" Pretty cute.
@editor Wow you weren't kidding. 12 years since your last registered edit.
@editor Mitchell_k_dwyer mostly for the same reason. :)
@editor What's your editor name?
@editor Mostly music and juvenile fiction articles, 'though I've been a little cold lately (last edit in January). I was one of those bot operators correcting particular peeves of mine ("passed away" instead of "died" per WP:EUPHEMISM) but that one's been scrubbed out now. :)
@editor Oh yeah, that. I...try to pretend it's not happening.
@editor The insider bickering has been a constant through the years. Wikipedia manages to keep going (and keep getting better) because of its editors. It's anarchy the way I always imagined our lives could be.
