I can recommend both the town of Jackson and the Jackson Hole environs as a very pleasant place to spend some time.

Yesterday I rode a horse for the afternoon. This was surprisingly tiring!

Today I am hoping to ride a machine nearer to the top of a mountain and then hike yet closer. We shall compare fatigue levels!

I cannot recommend United's 737 flights. That was the worst airplane I've ever been in. Claustrophobic AF.

We made it into Jackson Hole just fine, and it's beautiful, spacious, and open here, so that helps :)

amazingly, while our power flickered several times, we have not lost power!

Feels Like: 104 and now: thun-thun-thunderstorms!

What the fresh hell has birdsite done with their UI

I was going to do social things this evening, but my stomach has other plans 🤢

I have two shiny new training certificates; I know about how to combat harassment in the workplace, and I know about our corporate mobile device policy.

Been reflecting a little bit on an interesting little doctrinal difference between eastern and western christianity—in the west, the prayer for the dead takes the form of Requiem Aeternam, "Eternal Rest". In the east, the form is Memoria Aeternam (Vichnaya Pamyat), or "Memory Eternal".

The past isn't dead... it isn't even past... it's still alive in our memory.

Current status: making a risky pizza. It is risky, yo.

I just put a cherry pie in the oven, made from fresh cherries from the market yesterday. This smells delicious!

I feel it's absence already, like missing a good book after you've finished it. A good sign.

Stranger Things S3: mostly excellent! This show about kids having Very Bad Summers has remained really good, though I think they're probably out of gas after this season.

I wouldn't be surprised if there were more seasons, but I would officially Worry About Them.

Highly recommended.

Always nervous about, uh, about starting the end of a long running thing. Tonight, we enter the storm before the end of our 7th Sea game!

I think about Kurt, from Jason Lutes' _Berlin_, on a weekly or daily basis, since reading it.

Stranger Things S3E6: PHILIP GLASS KLAXON!

Just spent the last 10 minutes finding which piece they used for the, uh, monstrous climax of the episode--unmistakably Glass--and is "Confrontation and Rescue" from Satyagraha, Act 2.

Excellent!
