Bleh, woke up way way way too early for the third day in a row. This time it seems to be because bodies more than brains, but still, averaging 5.5hrs/night of sleep (according to FitBit) is definitely not my favorite thing. :/

The most excellent and lamentable tragedy of Flat UI Design, in two acts.

Every time the air quality goes to shit (like it is now), I get this constant low-grade headache that leaves me feeling like I want to do not-much except lay around.

So uh, I'm just gonna have some tea while I wait for the world to stop being on fire. Who wants to join me?

Blech. Air quality is unhealthy here today even though the fire is ~200mi away. Cannot see the east bay mountains at all like I normally can, and donโ€™t want to step outside to take a picture. Hope everyone in the midst of the fire gets out okay.

For the love of $DEITY, please vote tomorrow if you didn't already mail in your ballot. If you need help remembering, tell me and I will remind you.

*falls over* That was a good hike, and a good bookstore visit, and a good milkshake, and a good ramen, and now Iโ€™mโ€”zzzzzzzz.....

Got complimented by our head product manager on my ability/courage for artfully calling bullshit this morning when I thought a proposed solution was actually going to make the problem worse. Bonus?

Okay, Roomba, I know things are a little rough for you right now, but locking yourself in the closet and barricading the bedroom is not the answer. I promise, itโ€™ll pass. ^^

She saw on TV that ghosts made things cold, and she'd always had chilly feet at night.

So she found a stone with a hole through the middle and she waited under the covers until the chill made her toes curl.

Gently, she sat up, closing one eye and holding the stone up to the other.

Shimmering and thin as a beam of moonlight, the cat stretched and resettled on her feet.

She smiled and went back to bed, careful not to kick.

She'd always wanted a cat.

Woke up over an hour before the alarm went off and now I'm sleepy. Good job, brain! You win some coffee.

CAT FACT #2718: Cats may continue to operate in full-power mode while upside down. Roombas, however, cannot. Should your cat manage to tip over the Roomba, simply turn it upright and press โ€œCLEANโ€ to resume operation. Should your Roomba manage to tip over the cat, do not be alarmedโ€”no action is needed. The cat will right itself automatically when convenient.

On a related note to previous toot, I have discovered Tab Stash's rather surprising and useful ability to act as an impromptu Kanban board for websites... "this company said no", "this company hasn't responded", etc.

Always fun when that thing you wrote turned out to be more useful than anticipated.
