Dog snuggling, eyes closed, against my leg on the porch Selfie of the dog and me. She has black fur and a long snout and I have glasses, brown hair, and AirPods in.

Today’s puppy mood: Sunshine snuggle on the porch before work.

Beer in a glass and bottle, on a porch with trees and sun in the background.

I realize a lot of you are having Second Winter right now, so just let me know if you want me to think of you as I sit on my porch with a local brew after work. No charge.

Today’s puppy mood: portrait mode.

that ‘guys yelling at each other’ meme, this time about how a proper Manhattan is always with rye, up, and in a cocktail glass.

I just mandolined a pound of brussels sprouts and still have all my fingertips AMA.

Watched Coco last night. It was beautiful and I didn’t cry even a litt–that was a lie and I apologize. I was a weepy puddle.

Grey-blue clouds and a bit of yellow/pink sunrise in the distance.

Lovely sunrise view as I left for the gym early this morning.

This note by @manton reminded me that I’ve been meaning to update my media endpoint to remove location data: for iOS now strips the location and other metadata from photos before uploading too. It’s easy to overlook but really important.

Now, so does my micropub posting flow!

My son sent me on an Easter egg hunt that ended with a leaf on which he had written I LOVE YOU, so my day is pretty good.

Brought the little Fuji along for breakfast this morning!

Heart rate plot showing a hard workout (lots of high heart rate percent numbers).

Got this Friday started right, with a really good spin session. Now: eating all the breakfasts.

Watching TV 📺! I have mixed-at-best feelings about Dan Simmons’ novel The Terror, but I’m mostly impressed with the TV adaptation. It’s utterly suffused with dread and has some striking visuals and strong performances, so far. Anybody else checking it out?

Spacemacs and org are not behaving on this new work laptop. I’m going to need patience and more ☕️.

Screens hot: My iPhone home screen

Experimenting with a focused iPhone home screen. (The rest of the pages are a complete disaster, of course.)

My friend Joel (@joeld) has produced a nice, high quality book of the EFF dice word list. Check it out!

These three photos are taken just about as quickly as I could press the shutter button on my iPhone, and are a good illustration of just how fast this dog is. Note the distance she has covered, the side juke and puppy grin in photo #2, and how she loves to make the tower flyby at speed. (The pattern was full.)

By the power of grayskull that burger looks good.

I’m doing taxes and I’m out of bourbon, so I’m making an espresso and reflecting on the tax preparation industry’s success at making this such a pain in the ass.
