Pinned toot

I'm a software developer who's interested in many different things, only some of which I want to try one day. I live in Abbotsford, BC, an hour outside of Vancouver.

I'm owned by a small tuxedo kitten.

"The amount of soil excavated is ... equivalent to 4,000 Great Pyramids of Giza, and represents one of the biggest structures built by a single insect species."

Since that iOS keyboard force touch navigation thing is going around, here's an even wilder tip:

Batch rename has been built in to macOS since Yosemite. Not even joking.

For the past few days, my son and I have been greeting the cat by throwing our hands up in joy and saying "THE CAT!" He looks back at us with warm eyes.

I was surprised how little Sylvester fought me putting the cone back on this morning when he lost it. Maybe he's still stoned.

I just saw a photograph of some salmon and now I must have sushi.

Cone Kitty can't even. Do it somewhere else.

How safe is warm bread in a plastic bin? A local grocery store put it in the bin so fast that condensation forms on the lid and there's so much of it that it was dripping. Ew, ew, ew.

"This is not some copy-paste Facebook thing."

Err, yes it is. You used copy. You used paste. It's on Facebook.

How drunk do you have to be to be too drunk to curl?

“Brexit latest victim: Curry.”

I’m sure the actual story is less sensational, but if I was a British citizen that is what it would take to make me move out.

The Cat has learned to use The Cone for Evil.

My son is busy singing to the cat:

"Happy neuter day to you,
Happy neuter day to you,
Happy neuter day dear caaaat!
Happy neuter day to you."
