Car is in the shop at the moment for warranty work, so I’m using Uber to get around. Pre-pandemic that was very easy, but now it’s pretty hard to get a ride outside of downtown. If the current driver doesn’t cancel on me, 40mins to get picked up. Rates are pretty high. I’m surprised that the supply-demand aspect isn’t attracting more part-time drivers for some extra cash. Literally, take my money!
My favorite comedian, Sean Lock, has sadly passed away. He was an active regular on British TV comedy panel shows. He was known for dry, grumpy, but often quite silly humor. It might not work as well for a USA audience, but this was a pretty good tribute reel from Channel 4. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRPngk5QyK4
Power Outage Rant
Day 3 without power. Michiganders seem unfazed by this, but it's pretty insane to me. I'm disappointed in the state government, who should be coming down on DTE like a ton of bricks. Governor cited unprecedented storms, but I thought that was pretty lame. Some strong gusts of wind are not a natural disaster in my books. Monopolies are rarely good. Down with that sort of thing!
My brain has been very foggy today, after my 2nd vaccine dose yesterday. I gave up trying to work and mowed the lawn instead. Zero brain power required, but it felt like I was getting something done.
This is my first spring in my first house, and I really have no idea what I'm doing maintaining a garden... but thank goodness for the surrogate parent that is YouTube.
I work at We Predict, building predictive statistical analysis with automotive data. I like to drink socially with friends, and with strangers until they become friends!
