death, construction, Seattle (-) 

Creeped out by this 🏗 disassembly failure that happened this afternoon in Seattle. We lived two blocks from there and walked the area regularly; we still drive there a lot since Mercer is one of the major E-W routes from our neighborhood.

weight, doctors (-) 

Had a long overdue physical last week. First time with a new doctor in Seattle. It was mostly good... except when they noted I was underweight for my height. Even though I have always been skinny and my weight has been stable for years. I know it's often way worse of an experience from medical profession for people who are over but it's a personal reminder that BMI is bunk.

Thinking about impossibly large numbers again and it's all my kid's fault.

I don't understand how people keep up their activity streaks through being sick.

Update: I strained something in my right forearm using a screwdriver at the wrong angle.

look, I know the "em" in "em dash" doesn't stand for "emily dickinson" but can we start telling children it does anyway

“Nintendo reviving a dead and buried game for Switch.”

Dead. And **buried.**

It’s obvious folks: E.T. is coming to Switch.

Triple-A caliber remake of the Marathon trilogy, please. I wanna hear Durandal as voiced by Alan Tudyk and watch the sun set on the ruins of Lh'owon
