: I use this site wrong. I mostly use Twidere on Android, which hides CW pretty deep, so I sometimes forget. I generally read everything in my feed, in order, but am often up-to three days behind. I may inexplicably boost or reply to something you've forgotten about, and I'm sorry.

As an , I live in the Bronx, and I manage some programmers in the financial data space. I'm married to a YA librarian with NY Public Libraries. I read a lot of books, some of them are not out yet. I have wide interests and lots of hobbies. If I'm following you, I probably noticed you talk about something I thought was interesting.

@aflightybroad Steely Dan randomly comes up on my playlist, and I think of you as one of the few people I know who actually knows that music. Have a great day.

USA: Happy presidents day, the buses may be on reduced schedule in your area.

They are in mine. ...Running late.

Left my umbrella on the subway. Because that's what I do on a rainy day I guess.

Is the bus somewhere in pieces? Or is it just particu-late?

:blobowo: Happy palindrome day 20200202.

:blobuwu: Gonna wait to spot 02/02/2020 20:20:20

:thinkhappy: Followed by 20/02/2020 20:02:20.

That feeling when near a random stranger that I know them full somewhere. Drives me slowly insane.

Celebrity Rape, Death 

How is it that only today I found out that Jonathon Coulton created a mashup of 25 or 6 To 4 (Chicago) and When I'm 64 (Beatles). It's...awesome.

@vollink that's fascinating, thank you. Is this a statement of intentional action (in which case, can I ask you to expand on that a bit?? I would love to know more!), or more of an observation of a trend developed over time due to factors not directly linked to an intent to cultivate this result?

celebrity death 

I need to acknowledge this... My wife had the day off and decided to take the 1h40m committee to bring me my belt this morning.

How about leaving for work but forgetting my belt? That would be a Monday thing to do.

Somehow, I never listened to the Coulton-Roderick Christmas album this season.

Just noticed that I made coffee about 90 minutes ago. How's YOUR day going?

Men's Clothing Rant 

Though I started on Monday, I don't feel like I've started working yet. So far it's been training which has important, but it doesn't give me a feel for what the work will look like.

When a developers says they can "see how to build that" it really means that they can envision the happy path. They almost assuredly have not considered all the edge cases.

HAPPY NEW YEAR 🎉🎆 From New York City
