Someday I will meet the man who designed my refrigerator such that the water filter cannot be replaced without removing a shelf. I will tell him that I am not mad, I am disappointed. Deeply disappointed.
The apparent downside of having deep cleaned my espresso machine is my newfound understanding that all that old gunk was the only thing ensuring a tight seal of the portafilter against the gasket.
So, it hailed pretty good at my house today.
Oh no. I just started thinking about changing my blog platform again. Somebody better enable and/or stop me.
👍 That looks like a fun thing to pick up!
Better than running to the bathroom with the headset on!
It’s so good! I hope you love it.
I finished Anthony Doerr’s All the Light We Cannot See tonight. It’s stunning. Lyrical, gripping, and heartbreaking. 📚
What’s the word on the iOS 12 public beta, friends? Is it ready to run on my daytime phone?
The old Bridge over Marble Canyon at Cameron, AZ.
👍 Liked: Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon
Jack Baty can’t leave org behind and there is much truth in this, in particular:
No matter which task manager I use, I end up ignoring what’s in it anyway. It’s counterintuitive, but switching task managers is a very productive process for me, so this hasn’t been a total wash.
My high school was built as a WPA project and remains this spectacular monument. (Despite taking the original marquee down and replacing it with a ridiculous electronic sign several years ago.)
Dinner date tonight included a nice sampler of interesting sake, and a dish of local corn with a spicy sauce wrapped in seared tuna. That tuna corn was outstanding.
Last time I went on vacation, I got all relaxed and thought, “sure, I can coach the soccer team.” This time I’m all relaxed and thinking, “maybe I’ll start up a tiny podcast here on my micro.blog.” 👀
Morning at mom and dad’s place, northern Utah. We drove here yesterday for a few days of vacation.
It’s after five, making today officially a twelve-hour work day. I’m going on vacation and having one of these.
I got some old favorites for my birthday.
Ever find yourself just really, really looking forward to making tacos tonight?
I probably shouldn’t have skipped lunch?
Just out for a walk yesterday. I love love the effect of stormy sky with evening sunlight on the foreground.
Today’s cappuccino was good.
It was only days ago that a spider made a home in my briefcase, and today there was a snake in the hallway.
I finished listing to Borne. I liked it. It definitely draws thematic lines right from Vandermeer’s Southern Reach but reads a little more whole as a story? I think.
Also I love this little touch in the app when it’s finished. Off to check out another audiobook!
My son, staring intently at me:
“Dad, I think I see one gray hair right there by your ear.”
Me: “Oh! Well that’s nice of you to point that out.”
Son: “Never mind, there’s a whole bunch.”
Eight-year-old wisdom is UP FRONT, gang.
Today in Brief Moments of Lizard Brain Terror: reaching into the briefcase pocket where I keep my wallet and ID, just like I do everyday, to find it utterly entombed in spider webs and also occupied by a reasonably large and angry (but harmless) wolf spider.
