Having a very @typingmonkey neighborhood lawn maintenance day here on the upper east side.
By which I mean it has been nonstop leaf blowers and lawn mowers.
My coworkers are having a bleak humor day:
A: "Love X's commit messages today: 'everything is probably broken'"
X: "Look, if you're not borderline depressed by your code, are you even a programmer?"
Y: "Every day, the line dividing the horrible legacy shit I have written from the shiny awesome new stuff I've written advances"
A: "What if _It Follows_, but 'it' is just Imposter Syndrome"
I signed up for a Strava account (as a way of connecting my new rowing machine to apple health—Rube Goldbergian), and I did so with just email, declining all social media connection offers.
It is still capable of recommending friends to me (like @dzombak, a college buddy, and a coworker), which is a little creepy. I guess even though I didn't explicitly link my social media presence it took my email and scraped connections via that?

She is the very model of a Cairn
Business Paterfamilias John Stankey (AT&T), Business Dad Jason Kilar (WarnerMedia), Business Mom Ann Sarnoff (WB), and, uh, Business Cool Rich Uncle David Haddad (WB Games) all wrote missives, neatly arranged in inverse reporting order :).
