I know a lot of people who work from home, none of them do so from bed.

What’s the tldr?

I recently realized it was taking way longer than normal to cook because front right is not doing so good.

I don't love front left, but he's a hard worker.

I love how the guy making this joke can’t bring themselves to commit to the bit.

I'm with you but it's not the doctor it's the hospital administrators who live like the CEO of a Fortune 500 company.

We saw VERY few nominations for books in December, and I know everyone is very busy with the season. We'll open nominations for January at the end of the month so be thinking about it.

INSTEAD... we are going to be reading some short stories for those that still want to have something to read together.

Let's read:

  • This is How You Lose the Time War by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone
  • The Stories of Your Life and Others by Ted Chiang
  • The Machine Stops by E.M. Forster

If you have other suggestions we can throw them out here too. I'll create discussion for these three for now.

I know this is a busy month for a lot of us. So far we only have 2 nominations for the book club and one of them is mine. It seems like December might not be a great month for the book club. If we don't get a few more nominations I am going to cancel for December and push whatever nominations we get into nominations for January.

What do you guys think? Should we cancel book club for December and pick up in January or do you guys want to move forward (which will some more nominations for a vote to make sense).

Here's the nomination post for convenience. November Nominations

The time has come, friends, to nominate more reading for December! This post will collect nominations for the next few days (I'm thinking into the weekend) and then we'll have us a vote. Please don't hesitate to talk about why you want to share your pick and why you think it will be a good item for discussion.

Luna: New Moon by Ian McDonald

We had a lot of selections to choose from this month and it was pretty close race between Luna and Annihilation. I am very excited to experience this book and enjoy the discussion.

Annihilation by Jeff Vandermeer

Annihilation is our second place selection for November. We decided to choose a second book for people who want to have a little more variety and want to do more than one book in a month. I am looking forward to the discussion on this one. I saw the movie when it came out but am really interested to experience the story in book form.

For me I would say "The Expanse" is a huge one. If there was ever a self made family, the crew of the Rocinante is one of the best. The amount of time they spend together and how they congeal into life long partners and friends in the face of some truly awful events is really inspiring to me.

The Holdovers (lemmy.world)

We went to see The Holdovers in a limited screening this weekend and I have to say it was one of the best movies of its kind I have seen in many years. I found myself connecting deeply with he characters and was delighted that the audience was treated with respect throughout. Paul Giamatti's performance was excellent once again, and the film itself was a work of art from the solid humorous moments to the tear jerking bits. This film is well worth watching. I'd love to hear what you guys think.

I have been posting and commenting a LOT more than I ever did on Reddit. Some small part of that is a desire to grow the platform and my communities.
