Won’t have a Cosmo picture thanks to Covid restrictions affecting the airport so no bars are open. Excited to head back home and be with my Fox and doggos.

Even better office selfie! Headed to the airport to make my journey home.

Office selfie. So weird to be back here after over a year. Feeling slightly more normal now.

Had to visit the only and only best graffiti shop on the planet in NYC to get some supplies. Finally dabbling in spray paints as a medium. Have to drive just outside of Chicago to get them of course. At least I have a healthy set of caps to learn from now.

Times Square is returning to its original form. Crazy busy. The smell of acrid charcoal and lighter fluid from street food vendors. Someone shouting “Who wants drugs?” as they walk by. The overly aggressive discount mascots pushing for photos.

Off to NYC with this guy. Got a sidecar with my usual Cosmo so it’s a great day to fly already.

kinky things 

“Is fisting an acrobatics check or a dexterity check?”

Who called them "poppers pigs" instead of "hamyl nitrites"

Update on the Cidery is that things are still moving. Have the branding coming into focus and it is making me super excited. More work on the business plan and financials then at some point in the next few weeks we'll be launching a kickstarter. It's feeling so surreal.

Will be back on Twitch in a couple weeks. Was taking a break after my second dose and clearing off my projects at work. Have SMILE vision correction coming up next week in NYC so I have taken out my contacts for the last time and wearing glasses until it happens. See ya soon!

Reading the barometer of my twitter and facebook. I'm sensing a large storm of software dev tech folks leaving the industry or company in large numbers. The past year has pushed tech everywhere to entirely new limits at the cost of everyone's mental health.

The constant meetings. Violated boundaries upsetting work/life balance. Remote working isn't a paradise especially if you and they aren't prepared for it. Global day off? We can do better.

Seriously considering starting "onlydevs", where developers can sell video of themselves reducing tech debt, removing large chunks of code, etc...

Dinged level 36. Not sure what new stats I get so I’ll have to check with the DM.

The thing I’m looking forward to the most right now is a large chunk of time off next month. Haven’t left town on a vacation since 2019. Doing occasional three day weekends at home just doesn’t give me that mental space to breathe and sleep.

Second shot in the books. Feeling more hopeful and excited for the future!

My genuine fear with this startup is the communities in which it is deeply rooted won't show up in enough numbers to support us. I want to be so surprised that I melt down into a puddle of happy tears and get to see this thing happen for real. Fingers tightly crossed!

Quickly progressing into the next funding stages of this startup so expect me to start talking, tweeting, tooting, gramming, and streaming about it very soon. Not sorry for flooding your timeline with it either. I'm excited to share my story and dream with the world soon. ❤️🦊

"Why is the port number on this service 6868?"

"Because we can't have nice things"

Short but sweet and chill stream today while I work on software packaging and releases. Swing by to say hi.
