Pinned post

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

I like photography, and my son and I are taking ukulele lessons together.

I post frequent pictures of the house CEO, a tuxedo cat.

I think I might have just accidentally discovered my wife's birthday gift to me in Amazon. Oops.

If a programmer designed a bus, it would simultaneously have summer, spring and winter tires.

My wife taught Sylvester to high five for a treat. Now he gives her a high five on his schedule and expects a treat.

Yesterday morning when she got home from graveyard shift, I had forgotten to refill his bowl. So while she tried to sleep, he woke her with a pat pat every hour. Then he’d high five her and demand a treat. SHE DID IT, SO SHE COULD go bACK TO SLEEP.

I ask you: Who trained who?

Something about the way Star Trek Lower Decks does space battles makes them the most attractive of Star Trek. It’s like they start with a CGI battle for “accuracy,” but redraw everything to add an organic warmth and complexity.

I’m a huge fan.

Ted Lasso 

It took me until this week to realize how insanely unhealthy Nate‘s spitting on the mirrors is. I don’t mean biologically, either, though that is certainly true. I mean what he’s doing to “build confidence“ is spitting on his own image. It’s like the opposite of Jamie‘s answer in season one to “panda or lion.“ Nate is saying “anyone but me.”

I’m not saying redemption would be easy, just that the poor boy is really fucked up with self loathing. That’s clearly the root of everything.

Spocktober has always been my favourite month.

today I spent 2 hours on the local highway and in that time moved 5km.


"Krieger get this off!"
"Good thought but I don't think we have time for that."

Don't panic.
Something went wrong.
It's okay. It will be less wrong later.
You've got something else to do, right?

Siri's dictation is sometimes an awful lot like Officer Crabtree in Allo Allo:

Good moaning, fiends. Since we are a loon, I would very mush lick to tick to you.

Getting real tired of the attitude at work.

"You know, I often clock out late, and make sure I do everything, because you gotta put in the extra effort, because we're like a family here, so just think about that"

No, you're not family.

Engineers are like prostitutes - pretending to be excited will cost you extra, and once the job's done, they leave.

I'd like to think Norm Macdonald is telling a shaggy dog story to St. Peter right now.

Raising Hope 

“C’est la vie.”
“La vie!”

macOS Monterey thus far has terrible 72dpi UI artwork.

Disney+ has a sequel of sorts to Up: Dug Days. It's a series of shorts following Carl & Dug in their new home.

High literature it isn't, of course, but at the same time it's delightful.

Ed Asner returns as Carl, and Bob Peterson returns as the writer/director/Dug.

(I assume the show won't be returning, since it's unlikely they can replace Asner.)

Raising Hope: The scene where Jimmy gets his nipple caught in the crib is one of the funniest and cringiest things I’ve seen.

Also, it must be tough for Jackson to act surprised every time his basic advice works.

Show thread

Watched the My Cat from Hell episode “Macho Cat” and holy hell I hate the boyfriend’s attitude. I hope he’s learned something since.

It’s funny how often the cat’s dysfunction mirrors the owner’s.

I’m up early because my last dream contained an entire trauma of ants.

And ants generally don’t bother me.
