I got pretty blissed out on Alto’s Odyssey in zen mode last night. I didn’t screenshot in time, but saw perhaps the most beautiful single game image I’ve ever seen, skiing past a waterfall at sunset (sunrise?), the blue turned to glowing crimson in the light. Amazing.

Great spin ride this morning. I’m trying to figure out if my knees are getting less achy after hard workouts while on this Whole 30. Not sure.

As far as I’m concerned, this is now the official trailer for Solo: Solo: A Star Wars Story - Sabotage Trailer Re-Cut - YouTube

Good timing! @kaa (MB lost the image in the first post, so trying again…)

Lots to do lots to do, OH, Alto’s Odyssey is here… morning evaporates

This little Subaru had better be able to fly itself home from the shop when all this work is done.

Only hyperventilating a little at the cost of this Subaru repair.

Today’s breakfast was good, gang.

We’ve had this frenetic goofball for two years now.

I’m one week in with using @patrickrhone’s method: drawing my coffee cup each morning as a prompt to start putting something in my notebook every day. It works!

Damn. Peace, John Perry Barlow.…

I haven’t shared a sunbeam pup photo in a while.

Kiddo is home sick today so I’ve rescheduled some meetings and set up to work at the dining room table, while thinking and knowing how tremendously privileged I am to have that flexibility.

I am not angry, Internet, just disappointed, that nobody told me there are new albums from Calexico and The Shins.

New tools. I happily blame @aleen and’s notebooks gangsters.

Is there a word for when you have to reboot for software updates, but have a ton of terminal tabs with a month’s work of personal project history in them that maybe, just maybe I’ll need someday?

Hey knowledgable iOS dev folks: On a self-signed app w/o paid dev account, is there any way to extend the profile expiration past six days? This is just a dumb personal tool and it’s kind of tedious to re-install it weekly.

Me, reading email this morning: “February second? That’s so far away when even is February oh my god it’s now?!”

It was a good sunrise today, after a solid morning workout!

The view from yesterday’s lunchtime walk.
