Whatever upgrade Apple pushed on my overnight, it bumped me to Safari 15. UI aside - its awful but I guess I will become used to it - it should be table stakes for a browser in 2021 to never ever ever lose open tabs

Leopard eats faces.

Media promotes leopard's agenda, resuscitates leopard's profile every few years, and treats leopard's face eating as just another POV

The faceless point out their faces are still being eaten.

The public yells at the media.

Media: You're eating my face!

Gosh, there's some angry caping for a poor defenceless trillion dollar multinational over this USB-C thing from the EU.

I keep waiting for Nick Cummins's milkshake duck moment

There’s a few writers I read just about everything I can find of theirs. Lech Blaine is one of them. Sometimes when I read, in parts I can almost close my eyes and be walking down Bourbong Street.

Google Calendar has added an Insights panel to my view, gleefully telling me how much of my week was spent in meetings, It's not yet able to capture how many hours I spent bored by pointless waffle, but when it asks for camera access, I'll know the feature is ready.

It is possible to be repulsed and disgusted at the behaviour of elements of auspol and also roll your eyes that once again a political journalist is talking to other political journalists and making it all about political journalism.

It’s not being locked down that is doing my head in. It’s that my neighbours are also locked down. I’d love to eat my lunch outside in the sun but someone has been drilling and sawing and sanding all day for weeks.

Get notification that friend is reading "She Who Became the Sun" and had a brief moment of squee that there was a new book in the Library at Mount Char universe.

Only an android would think video calls needed _fewer_ body language cues.

D has a Judge's Badge* and she*** is definitely making use of it while watching the rhythmic gymnastics tonight.

Someone next door is learning Pachelbel's Canon on piano, and I'm sorry, It's delightful that you are acquiring a skill, but squeezy rubber chicken or GTFO

Love to able to tell manager didn't read my self-reflection as we start my review. Love to write my own review during the review. Love to see Other Colleague's name in the copy pasta.

I'm old and ugly, so I'll shrug it off. Going to have to check in with the younger peeps.

"I can assure you Mr Speaker, that were I not being financially incentivised that there is no way at all, no way, Mr Speaker, that I would have done any of the useless, bullshit jobs I have performed over the entirety of my career. Mr Speaker, not a one of them."

I saw a video this morning described as an Alaskan school going nuts as one student win gold in Tokyo. All they were doing was hopping and cheering. I felt like saying “that’s not nuts. _This_ is nuts” and then I realised. Australia knifey-spooneyed the Olympics.
