Email from my friend's mother begins with "Do not beat anyone with anything..."

She's cool.

We should talk at some point. I'm sorry for our loss. Tim called and said I should read your new book.

I very much miss Wuz.

"Mom" will be here in a week.

It'll wait another day.

Fun fact, I've been helping "someone" move the last few days, and got my shiny new ThinkPad T14.

Downtime so naturally I took my machine apart, ripped out the 500GB nVRAM with Windows, popped in a blank TB to which I'll install my preferred OS (this was specifically purchased to run). Been busy since.

Unboxing now that I'm home, I find dog hair in the seems and lots slobber across the lid and I have a pretty good idea of the culprit.

New machine blessed by dogs. Good start.

Anyone else realize their trusty wallet is just gone, and have to shop for a new one? And despise the process?

Fuckers are spendy at that, unless you want to play middle school tri-fold Velcro late 80s... which are also spendy.

@juliewebgirl Tox let me stay at his place while he and Nadise we're mobile...and my mom came to SF to visit. I almost killed Madre. I ordered her out of the truck just to get us to market and ninth... she has us half way to North Beach. And manual transmission in SF is an art, not a science.

i can park in 4 seconds, with a manual transmission, on fucking California street in San Francisco, with a CJ5.

So there's a driving school thinks it's funny to teach 'parking' in front of the mail box, which is fine because guaranteed big open space 99% of the day, Right? Right.

He's old and snarky, his wife twice so...
