Ooooooh.

Just set to record it on my YouTube TV app. I'll have to afflict my cat with my singing tomorrow since I'm out now.

I asked my friend who uses Noom why she likes it, and she said, "It’s a very rational way of looking at weight loss and why I may have the eating habits I have. It keeps me very mindful. I can eat whatever I want but it guides me on better choices. I’ve lost 30lbs and have been able to keep it off."

I'm sure it's a variation on the "I don't have to be fast enough to outrun a bear..." concept. Just try to make your Kia/Hyundai a little harder to steal than the next one down the street.

Yes, all they're doing is stripping the steering column to expose this little nub on the ignition, and then any USB cable fits over the nub so that you can manually turn it to start the car without a key.

The CPD has started giving away steering wheel locks. The 1990s are back!

My cat loves watching Instagram crow videos on my phone. He takes interest in all birds, but he's obsessed with crows, which we rarely see in my neighborhood.

She's another bestselling author who started out self-published. "Hoover is eclectic. She’s written romances, a steamy psychological thriller, a ghost story, harrowing novels about domestic violence, drug abuse, homelessness and poverty. Though her books are hard to categorize, most of them have an addictive combination of sex, drama and outrageous plot twists."

I finally watched The Menu and was very disappointed. I appreciated the mimicry of Chef's Table's cinematography, but I didn't find it to be witty, and wished that it had leaned into the theme of a world-class chef being a Jamestown type cult leader instead of gesturing weakly at class politics, before pulling the rug out from under that theme altogether.

It's been so gray this winter that this morning's rococo sunrise gave me a seratonin boost,even though it's 15° without the clouds.
