I’m finally reading Good Omens. It’s right in the sweet spot for me: hilarious, absurd, and sacrilegious, with delightful turns of phrase on every page.

Looks like my afternoon of DNS hacking almost worked. Mastodon cross-posting from might have been the only casualty.

Spent an enjoyable Saturday afternoon hacking on DNS, GitHub pages, and settings. I think I finally have everything behind SSL certificates and updating correctly.

Either that or this post will fail and I’ll also have plans for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon.

It’s time to check out Mastodon, I hear. I’m over there. (over here? cross-posting is so confusing)

Finally took my Exo print to be framed and found this behind it. Li is the best!

It’s a beautiful night for a ballgame. 093C5E3B-A9D6-43E7-A923-E76DA475A613.jpg

Ballpark number 7. Go Cubs!

Me, employee 7, and the original Mac pirate flag.

Stay safe out there.

It’s good to be running again.

Skied in a blizzard. Check.

Just a bit of snow in Tahoe.

Defying Gravity…

On this Thanksgiving we’re saying “mahalo”and substituting fresh grilled shrimp for turkey.

I look forward to being able to breathe again! 179AA098-4529-4B97-B039-AD6311A7A4FD.jpg

We’re going in the right direction today. Aloha!

“The angry obsessive is absolutely vulnerable to being stoked, inflamed, and inspired by angry rhetoric.
