165: Take What We've Got July 3, 2020 2:22 PM   Subscribe

It's July, which is podcast season, or so the man at the podcast store told me. So jessamyn and I bought ourselves a podcast and took it out on the lake and, honestly, I don't know where I'm going with this. It's Friday, I'm pooped, we talk about MeFi stuff a bunch, it's about 90 minutes long, here you go.

Would just like to say I won opening game of this season's Scrabble.

Oh we didn't even talk about Learned League this time! I forfeited like four times and finished middle of the pack in bottom rundle so I clearly wasn't the only person having a hard time. Better than my total washout last season, tho.

Hi cortex! Hey Meatbomb! Jessamyn is not my administrative assistant, however much I may need assistance.

HELLO WORLD! Yeah, Jessamyn won scrabble™ last night, too, and is two wins, no losses for the season. I have some catching up to do!

However, tonight is MOVIE NIGHT! Scrabble postponed due to fuzzy spinning guitars.

How to use the MacOS emoji picker:
1. find the glyph you want.
2. double click on it. It will automatically be inserted at the cursor of whatever text field you had focused before summoning the emoji picker.
