Elixir and Phoenix are really cool, and thanks to them I'm enjoying coding for fun for the first time in a couple months.

I bought the Matt Groening house. It came fully furnished.

Getting my car serviced for the first time since the pandemic started. I am an adult.

I finished Kiryu's saga, all seven games of it, and I've moved on to Yakuza: Like a Dragon. I didn't expect to take to Ichiban so quickly, but he's such a nerd and I love him to bits.

Just started Mass Effect 3 this morning and I had forgotten about our new absolutely jacked boy we get in this one.

Brands, you're only allowed to change your icon to a rainbow if you also provide receipts of you giving a shitload of money to queer people.

I took on too big a clean up project and now my floor is covered in old electronics.

I'm on PTO for the next two weeks! Very excited to do anything but work for a little while.

This gets at the most ridiculous part of this Basecamp thing. Both Basecamp and HEY are products that facilitate people communicating, which means political issues are deeply important to the product.

Colorado now has COVID vaccines open to the general public but it looks like there aren't any appointments available anywhere near me. Guess I'll have to keep trying.

I finished Gideon the Ninth faster than any book I've read in recent memory. It's really good, gave me many feelings.

I have to write a self-review for work today instead of playing a bunch more Miles Morales, keep me in your thoughts and prayers please.

The PS5 arrived today! I didn't even realize it had shipped yet, but here it is!

I managed to order a PS5 finally! I'm so nervous GameStop is gonna cancel it or something, but hopefully this is it.

I don't really do the evening binges, but the rest of these are definitely a big part of my relationship with food.

Who in recruiting did I anger that caused them to schedule me to do an interview at 9am Monday morning?

(It was probably an automated system but there's nothing funny about that)

I'm content to live in fear of the oven. It has burned me on several occasions.

My reMarkable tablet arrived today which was 4 days earlier than it was supposed to!

Now that iOS 14 and friends have been out for a while, I've released v1.0.0 of Relay.swift, which removes support for iOS 13, macOS 10.15, etc. By doing so, I got to fix some bugs (thanks to StateObject) and improve the APIs so they mesh better with the rest of SwiftUI.

Love to be walking around Freeside and a random thug comes to attack me and see Veronica just deck him so hard he dies on the spot.

Yay! I finished Advent of Code with Rust, a language I was learning as I went along. And it worked: I definitely know Rust much better than I did before. I'm no expert, but I could start a project in it now without being totally overwhelmed, and that's pretty cool!

All I want for Christmas is to read everyone's stories of their family Christmas drama.

I would very much like an offshoot of The Adventure Zone but it's Sydney DMing for Teylor, Rileigh, and Tommy.

After this week, I'll be off work for two straight weeks. It would be so choice if I could somehow get myself a PS5 before then.

I'm not sure this is true; the elite continue to show their whole ass on Twitter at what feels like every opportunity.

Spent a bunch of time today making DNS do what I want but now it does what I want and I'm happy.

If your product or company can't succeed while working comfortable, sustainable hours, it doesn't need to exist.

I am a huge nerd who is eagerly awaiting the arrival of their new WiFi router like it's Christmas morning.

Actually defunding the police is a very good idea because the police are just government-funded killers with no accountability. Literally any other use of their budget would be better.

Decided to do this year's Advent of Code in Rust so I can actually finally learn this language for real.
