Sometimes, I think I should stop eating salads by the half gallon, but then I calculate the calories, and, naaaaaah, I’m fine.

Exciting Friday night plans: long talk with Dad! #winning

Finished On Tyranny, Twenty Lessons from the Twentieth Century by Timothy Snyder yesterday, flipped back to the beginning, and read it again. This book is incredibly worth reading, let me buy you a copy. ki.tt/bk180913 📚

Reading through conversations here, I love how they veer off into unrelated topics and side channels and new ideas. Love. It.

Whoo! @hankchizljaw is here! Next up, encourage more posting.

Aw yisssssssss. Bob just wrote his first HTML. Old dogs, new tricks and all that. F— yeah!

Well this is an experience, building a website for a quirky octogenarian friend to use. If I didn’t like him so much, I’d be all (งツ)ว As it is, this is an adventure.
