In Brooklyn doing that New York-y thing where you order food at 3am. Takeout halal platter in this case.

"Saan kayo sa atin?" (Where in the Philippines are you from?) I ask as I wait for my sandwich, popular greeting among Filipinos abroad. "Manila!" Me too, I reply, San Juan. "Malayo kayo." (you're far).
Suddenly feel a familiar sense of displacement from childhood. San Juan is a suburb of Manila, but also near the geographic centre of the greater Metro Manila area. I often say I grew up "in Manila" but really I was always in the periphery, a suburban 3rd culture kid.
Was supposed to fly back to DC on Sunday but forecasts say Sunday will be east coast snow hell so my airline let me reschedule for free and so here I am at the airport a day early at 4am having a Tim’s medium regular and a breakfast sandwich, trying to chew on the opposite side of my mouth from my root canal.
The Tim’s cashier is Filipina and she is singing along off-key to the piped-in pop music and it sounds just like the old country.

Shout out to the Stanford Online Accessibility Program website. It's the most coherent resource I've found that really explains all sorts of context around accessible websites. Not just "here are some tools" but "here is how to think critically about your users and make a site that works for everyone".
