Me: "Behold my unfinished masterpiece-in-progress"

Coworker: "Is this also a giant fire?"

Me: "No! ...This is more like a beautifully intricate, artisanal... heat source >_>"

It is raining so hard that in the span of a block it has gone through my rain jacket, and my pants are wetter than when they come out of the washing machine. Excellent way to start a shopping trip 😣

The past 10 days have been a series of compounding disappointments, and I worry that this is just a build-up to much larger disappointments that I'm already bracing for but really don't want to deal with ☹️

I did basically nothing this weekend, and I wish I felt more rested or relaxed for having done so.

On the bright side, I'm slowly getting better at accepting and (mostly) not beating myself up about not being productive or accomplishing anything.

Well, Gnome 3.30 makes my ArchLinux installation totally unusable, so back to 3.28 it is I guess :\

Every breath I take
brings my tooth to ache
my filling was displaced
in a cleaning's haste
now it hurts to chew

Ugh because the slots are siblings but the slotables aren't 😭

Specifically, in a component with two slots, `::slotted(.first-slot) + ::slotted(.second-slot)` doesn't seem to target anything :(

Aww, my overcomplicated experiment failed due to `::slotted()` apparently not working with sibling combinators and other slotted elements 😞

Why are humans such a consistent source of disappointment? 😞

It's cloudy and raining in Vancouver today, which of course means I'm now getting email alerts for a spectacular Aurora Borealis tonight. πŸ˜’

Me: "Hey Google, do I need an umbrella?"
GA: "No, it isn't raining. It's cloudy with a high of 17Β°"
Me: *looks out window* "It's definitely raining"
GA: "No, it isn't raining. It's cloudy with a high of 17Β°"
Me: "You are factually incorrect"
GA: "Sorry, I'm still learning"

The mountains are back, and tonight's sunset was amazing 😍

Stepped outside this morning and the air was cool and there was a slight breeze, and now it's trying to lightly rain. The horizon is still a smokey featureless void, but I'll take the small wins at this point.

I am very curious to know what the view looks like from the nearby trails with all the smoke today, but I'm kinda feeling like it's better not to be out for a walk with all the smoke today 😷

Our office dog is having a case of the Mondays

We're at a point at work where we're adding new use cases (as opposed to extending current use cases) to a bunch of existing features, and I'm having a hard time trying to figure out the best way to structure things within the design of the existing systems and I feel like I'm going in circles πŸ˜•

The smoke in Metro Vancouver is now thick enough* to put mountain-non-visibility anxiety in effect. Where are my friendly horizon hills to keep the vastness at bay? 😧

* albeit only 125 on the AQI scale

The atmosphere might be toxic, but this post-apocalyptic lighting is great for my complexion.
