Most of them are £16 per pair, first class postage is £1.50, happy to post overseas - DM me if you're interested!
The rain came. I can confirm the gingkos are totally bare, some still with yellow carpet, most with khaki.
Along the tracks in Mountain View stands a line of ginkgo trees, bent slightly, not by Diablo winds or ocean gales but the punctuated wakes of trains.
In fall, they glow Suessian yellow, bright as torches in the early sundown. How strange that the trains bend the tree but the leaves remain. Waiting, I suppose, for the absent rains to pull them down.
Ethical human beings should resign from Google immediately.

it's dark out, nothing matters, there is nothing to look forward to for at least six more months, I just do a shitty job at work and parent my kid
(especially now, because there was a COVID case in my kid's daycare class and we're doubly quarantined now with no childcare)
but sure, introduce your brand new girlfriend to our kid, why the hell not
like, a clean financial and legal break and half custody with some flex (e.g. if either parent gets sick)
and for my ex to quit thinking we'll ever get back together
that would be cool too

Interesting exploration of tradeoffs between web sites and web apps, and React versus Svelte. Worth reading for the links alone.
