Half-following the build up to . I haven't been to since 2014, though I've been to WonderCon & Long Beach every year. The first year I couldn't get tickets I shrugged. It's exhausting, and there are other cons. I didn't even try this year or last. But now I find I've started to miss it.

In the past 2 weeks I have had to patch both of my bike tires and replace one of my son's tires. (And he's only been riding a month.) Some plant along the local bike path produces seeds with thorns that we keep running over.

I spent yesterday's ride (after fixing both our bikes) looking at all the plants, trying to figure out which ones produced the thorns. No luck.

So I searched onlineby describing the seeds. Looks like sandburs, and the plants do look familiar.

I'll be on the lookout.

There are a zillion Starbucks in walking distance of work, and one Coffee Bean. I generally prefer the Coffee Bean, but it's got a TV that's *always* showing cable news. Even muted, it's a job to ignore it, and sometimes it seems like it adds back as much stress as the walk and coffee cuts down.

Weird, I was just talking about this a few days ago.

Just once I'd like to open a tech company's website and have it tell me right away what are they selling and not tell me how vaguely great and vaguely happy and vaguely awesome my life will be if I have a sales call with them.

7YO just told me he was going to write something down with his "epic pen."

I love that this kid understands puns.

I would walk 500 miles
And I would walk 500 more
But we use the metric system here
So in kilometers that's 804

Pray I do not reword them further.

There is a note pinned up next to the void:
"The void holds no data about you, does not wish to contact you, and does not care who you are, or what you scream."
Somehow, I find this oddly comforting. I leave, without screaming.

I have put in thousands of hours on my poetry generator over the past three years. Thousands. It gets rough, sometimes I feel like I should get rid of the whole thing and simply write poems on my own.

But every so often, the computer writes something for me that makes it all worthwhile. Like tonight, when it gave me this line:

Hey, quick reminder cause I just did this.
If your app for birdsite, or masto, or other social network has this, turn notifications off for likes/faves/retoots. You'll go to those sites a little less.

"I just had a thought."

The wizard sighed, casting a withered glance at the bard, "Please. DO share this truly rare phenomenon."

"A Sphinx is basically a cat right?"

"Part lioness."

"Right, part cat. So when I was a tiny me back on the farm, we had all these cats and there was this mint my grandma liked to grow--"

"We already have a plan."

"You'd really rather memorize 80 volumes of Uncommon Riddles in two days?"

"Yes."
