I would sort of like to transition into engineering management. Goals for 2020-2021 I suppose.

I wish Baudrillard and Adam Curtis were less fucking relevant, but here we are.

Beginning to think the democrats are not good at their job, good people ;)

today's lunch task is The Moving Comcast Conversation. I think I did it!

We found 6 tiny tennis balls underneath the shelving units in our laundry room. Six! And shredded remains of one more.

Laramie had some odd ideas about storing his toys :).

Beginning to marvel at the efficiency of everyday storage of things :).

Gotta love an aggressive driver in an enormous Toyota pickup truck rocking the stars and bars decals. In SE Michigan. Bruh.

A trip we undertook to save $210 on some moving expenses turned into an "oh shit, my iPhone" and then "oh shit, the _back_ of my iPhone", which is a $540 "repair" from Apple. Can mail it in to a service center in WA for about $160, so we will have saved $50 to negative-330 after all is said and done :-/

Does anyone have a spare old smartphone I could borrow for like a week? I need to send Heather's in for service and I want to swap her SIM card out into a loaner, but we've packed our surviving old phones :)

It was nice, the whole not living in a failed republic thing. We should do that again sometime.

No _you_ just spent the last two hours stepping through functions in the javascript developer console to track down a gnarly AF dynamic import error.

Watched the end of The Good Place, and now I'm sad in a happy way :). A great, if frequently extremely corny and goofy, show.

"Only a great fool would call the new [politics] diabolic... it is not even Machiavellian, for Machiavelli's teaching was graceful [and] subtle. Nor is it Neronian. Nevertheless one may say of it that it fiddles while Rome burns. It is excused by two facts: it does not know that it fiddles, and it does not know that Rome burns."

I'm not even sure it can be excused any longer, if I can misappropriate this.

yonder politics 

This is quite literally tyranny.
