Book idea: "The Cat and the Splat". It teaches children about roadkill through rhyme.: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1572707141/
Saw _Jojo Rabbit_, and it's fantastic. Hilarious, touching, poignant, hilarious. That's 3 for 3 for Taika Waititi. Do yourself a favor and go see it. 🍿: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1572703790/
I just saw Spartacus for the first time. Amazing to think that the same director is responsible for Spartacus, 2001, Dr Strangelove, Clockwork Orange, The Shining, Full Metal Jacket, and Cheaper by the Dozen 2 🍿: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1572028360/
I’m on the bus to NJ for five minutes and I’ve already been misted with a cracked Coors. Home sweet home.: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1572005314/
I just saw _North by Northwest_ for the first time. We watched most of the movie two nights ago, then finished it the next day, making the ending even more abrupt. 🍿: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1571602227/
If a lumberjack saws wood, and Jack Nicholson is wide awake, does a slumberjack saw wood?: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1571400473/
We in the bald community are honest (admitted: we have no hair), so what made us fully shave our heads; trying to copy Vin Diesel or trying to avoid Rudy Giuliani?: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1571400276/
Lifehack: Next time someone starts a sentence with, “Be honest…” cut them off with, “No.”: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1571400128/
I have half a huge pumpkin in my freezer. Should I: A) make a pie B) make a soup C) make excuses not to deal with it.: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1571400007/
I saw On The Waterfront for the first time the other day. Spoiler alert: it’s good. Also, set in Hoboken! Still, I was surprised how much of the plot revolved around re-routed PATH trains. 🍿: https://www.chrisdeluca.me/note/1571399642/

Is a macro essentially a function? I am writing a Lisp dialect, with first-class macros, and in my case the answer seems to be, yes.
Behind the scenes, the types are exactly the same, they are just called at different times. (Both take Lisp expressions as arguments; the fact that these are unevaluated, in the case of macros, does not make a difference for the implementation of the actual type.)
This does mean that (function? my-macro) returns true. Not sure if that's desirable.
