this morning kiddo wanted to wear mismatched shoes. i explained to him that mismatched socks were delightfully silly but that mismatched shoes might mess with his growth or at the very least increase the odds of tripping.
(i did not go into the plot point of von trier's antichrist)
in the process of explaining i did introduce him to the ministry of silly walks. cultural transmission successful, but probably not a wise move in getting him to actually want to wear matching shoes.
ah, looks like that EFF PM position may be going to someone internally. which is a bit of a bummer.
otoh, it finally got me to update my resume and start considering proper jobs again now that the kiddo's spending most of his day in school.
after breaking the ice with that EFF application i quickly put in a couple at 18F and that felt good to do.
there really aren't that many places in tech where i'd like to work, and most of them aren't hiring in positions i'd fit.
psa: there's an webgame based on the pinball number count song:
"empower women and we all do better" - simran sethi
the majority of my consulting practice has been working with and for women. it's made the idea of going back to a "normal" job, with the possibility of having to deal with toxic masculinity, feel dreadful.
some poor schmuck catfished me on facebook. guess i'm supposed to be mildly annoyed, slightly flattered, but mostly creeped out?
meh, if someone thinks they need my appearance more than i do, go for it, i guess. best of luck to you, nazario, if you're really a person and not a bot or cabbage or trout or something.
was looking for an action figure of my very own to help the kid understand ownership and sharing. found this instead:
Original Movie Prop - Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy - Zaphod Beeblebrox (Sam Rockwell) Silcone Head https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B5LR0AG
my kid, age three, refused to leave the bookstore today without moufawad-paul's "the communist necessity." he was so proud when i relented. he found the book and now it was His.
amazingly, he just sat there, utterly rapt, as i read the overture to him. was more attentive than when i read him age-appropriate stuff. he knows at best 5% of the words, but now they're up there in his brain, percolating.
