Well, we got acquired yesterday. 6 years of hard hard work but it feels good.

I expected today to be a flaming garbage pile but this is ridiculous

My therapist told me a story today. She has a bonsai tree in her office and it's very important to her. One day she walked in and saw that it was just a trunk with brown branches, the leaves were wilted because she'd overwatered it. She was so upset. She trimmed the dead leaves, but couldn't bear to throw it away because she loved it so much.
So she kept taking care of it. It was lifeless for weeks, but she persisted.
This week, little green buds blossomed into leaves.
Even though all hope seemed lost, that little tree blossomed in the toughest of conditions.
Even when all hope seems lost, you can blossom like that tough little bonsai tree. 🌿

Just booked studio time for my annual Christmas record. It will be all Burl Ives this time.

How do we replace Flickr?
Flickr, like all successful social software, is different things to different people. When something is done well, we internalize the communities that we interact with on it as part of the character of the place.

I'm kinda digging the Youtube genre where you've got various millennials giving their reaction to listening to Queen or Pink Floyd for the first time. I'm gonna do that, but for AC/DC records I've played about 500 times. "Oh wow, this riff is MIND BLOWING! I can't even!"

I don’t like to cap on other country’s oddities often. But with small businesses probably run by an absent owner, some employees just have no fucks to give and just toy with you because they can.

At small full and self serve laundromat: “Earliest we can have it ready is 5.” “I need it earlier, can I pay for a rush job?” “No sir. Saturday is our busiest day.”

There are literally no loads of unwashed laundry. All the machines empty.

She’s the same one who said you can’t pay when you pick up, new policy. Then the next time, the guy working said “No problem- just pay when you pick up.”

At 8, Munchkin’s defiance is ratcheting up EVER SO SLIGHTLY but it is awesome.

tfw your kid saturates your DSL with a game for the first time ever- right when you are trying to do a work conference call and that cuts out...

Playing QuizUp again for kicks and I’m glad Boston Dynamics isn’t creating the 99% of the players that are bots, because my scores are off the chain.

Munchkin just now: "Daddy, is anyone fixing the houses in Florida?"

We're 7000mi from the US, 10k mi from Florida.
