Well, not where I'm from. But maybe I'm not there anymore


Not completely unrelatedly - I have just discovered that BevMo has an order online pick up in store option and I'm not sure if that is very good or terrible

Actually, I've got to say, the Peloton itself sounds like of fun in a not-having-to-leave-the-house-but-still-interactive way.

You were a wrong baby who grew up wrong. The wrong kind of wrong. It's better you hear it from a friend.

I quite like that so far we've had six comments on the thread name, three about Pelotons and only one actually mentioning 2019.

And actually, only now do I notice that the thread name doesn't even mention 2019. (If it didn't already have a title, I'd propose "G&GR 2019: The Year That Buffistas Forgot".)

It's the Gen X of G&GR.

LOL. Peleton is not constrained by your silly YEARS! Peleton is eternal! Bwhahahahah!

Um. I never like to wrap up a year before it's actually over. So far this year was a heck of a lot better than the end of last year, though?

Now let us crush something soft and watch it fountain blood. That is a girlish thing to want to do, yes?

It's the Gen X of G&GR.

I'll have more to say later, but right now what I have is that 2019 brought me my birth mother.

That is a whole lot to say about the year, ND.

ND, that is momentous.

I had to go look up Peleton. Seems like the folks it would be most useful for would be serious exercise enthusiasts, not the dilettante like me.

Not quite ready to say goodbye to the year yet, even if I don't think too much will change. I've been looking for a new position on campus and the last one I applied for hasn't reached out. It can take them a while sometimes, so I'm being patient. I really hope to be able to say I have that position by the end of they year. My girlfriend put in a good word for me, already. Hee. Pays to have connections.
