Liz was on the lookout for an older window. But we mostly just browsed around. While the windows were fewer than we had hoped, there wer definitely a lot of doors.
Hazard Fraught is a phenomenal website by Randy Forte that tracks Harbor Freight tool prices over time. Not only can you see the current price of a given tool, you can see how much (percentage-wise) it’s currently up or down. You can also dig into each item, and see a history of every time the item price changed, over the last year or two.
After work today, I was running a bunch of errands. And on the list: stop in at a Northwestern Immediate Care, to get the Bivalent Booster shot.
I was sitting with Daisy one evening, and she decided to just hang out in her hop-n-flop… and promptly fell asleep. But not only was she sleeping, she started snoring.
I was able to get my camera out, and quietly filmed her up close for a little while.
“Whoever claims beauty
lies in the eye

“And I walked off you
And I walked off an old me
Oh me, oh my, I thought it was a dream
So it seemed”
I’ve been doing coding for myself this week, which was a surprising thing. I’ve been mostly all work for a while now, and downtime rarely involves coding for my own pleasure.
While I have several old projects that really need some time and attention once more, I ended up revisiting my Villanelle Bot project. Which, after some recent changes at Heroku, stopped working.
I happened across this video on YouTube randomly, and got sucked in. It follows the day to day operations of Goldee’s Barbecue, shortly after they won #1 for the best barbecue restaurant in Texas (via Texas Monthly).
I know it’s technically a “wand,” but to me it still looks like a gun that makes “pew pew” noises.
We’ve joked that we should have named him “Buddy,” because that’s what we end up calling him casually. Maybe that will be more of a nickname, and Hugo will be what he uses for… I dunno, when he signs legal documents or something.
This is Daisy, nestled into her (new) Hop-n-Flop. You can tell she’s super comfortable because she’s in a superman pose, with her hind legs fully extended.
The Follower is a great combination of open cameras, social media, and digital voyeurism. It takes publicly available camera data, Instagram photo data, and produces a snapshot of when a particular Instagram photo was taken.
by Linda Gregg The young men ride their horses fast on the wet sand of Parangtritis. Back and forth, with the water sliding up to them and away. This is the sea where the goddess lives, angry, her lover taken away. Don’t wear red, don’t wear green here, the people say. Do not swim in the sea. Give her an…
In true form, Liz and I both nearly forgot our wedding anniversary. It was just a few days ago that I burst into the bedroom, exclaiming that our 13th wedding anniversary was coming up… and Liz’s response was “I forgot!”
We’re a good match.
So, a few things to note here. First, as an employee of Grubhub, I get $50 in credit, per week, to use for ordering food. It used to be $35 per week a few years ago, but during the pandemic the amount got upped to $50.
If you don’t use your allocation before midnight on Sunday, it gets rolled into a donation fund… and then you’re issued another $50 on Monday. Something of a “use it or lose it” kind of thing.
