Also: The Big Sick: possibly the best drama involving stand up comedians ever?

Snow for the second time this year in Austin. Just making it under the wire.

Why is my brain feeling all fuzzy? Oh yeah! It’s 4 PM, I ran 5 miles a couple hours ago, and I haven’t eaten anything since breakfast. Charles Stross talking about how corporations can be viewed as AIs that have run amok and how they use deep learning to manipulate their environment.

Finished swabbing my bottled ink (have hardly started on the samples 😭).

You can see the difference in light quality from a 10 year old Ott-Lite (on right) and a Hue (RGB LED) bulb on the left

I’d pay dearly to have the power and control of the Hue with the color reproduction of the Ott-Lite.

Smudge has a bit of the resting cat face.

Also, this goofball seems to be afraid we will run off and abandon him again.

It is 47 and drizzly. Unlikely to warm up much. I’ve got to get back on the exercise horse, but I can let it wait until a little later in the day.

Enjoying the peaceful time before everyone gets up and we have to start driving to and from relatives, in-laws, and exes.

For or those that celebrate : Happy Christmas!
For those that do not: Happy Monday!
For those who are the on-call SysAdmin dealing with an outage: Thanks. I've been there and no-one EVER says that.

In-laws yelling I WONT EXPLAIN YIFFING TO MY FATHER! On Christmas Eve.

TFW you go out for dinner and the mariachis appear

Today was a really great day for back yard birds

It being 70 degrees outside when I get up on December 22 is just bullshit. It will, however, make for a more comfy run than seasonally appropriate temperatures would have.

Wrote a letter and a half today, which is actually pretty good. I’m fairly slow and generally don’t manage more than one a day on weekends and none during the week.

Val and I just got back from seeing The Last Jedi. It was super great. So many great character moments.
