So in summary, cats are terrible, but also amazing.

For April Fool's day, Bon Appétit did a special Gourmet Makes. It's... special. youtube.com/watch?v=2VrsmahNcf

My office is pretty dark since there’s no windows. Lately I’ve been shining a work lamp against the wall to get more indirect warm light in my office room and it feels like it helps. I definitely notice a difference when I turn it off, anyway.

Still no substitute for going outside but every little bit helps.

Just a reminder that with things being the way they are it’s especially important that if you do anything for April fool’s, make it kind and fun, not mean or distressing.

Okay so. Do I know anyone in Seattle with either an impact driver/wrench, or a long-handled 1/4" allen wrench? I need to loosen a couple of bolts that my kitchen remodelers made comically tight and which I need to adjust, and I don't want to spend $20+ for a full set for a thing I'm going to only use once.

aw heck I'm having caffeine jitters/anxiety. guess a half-caf espresso shot is too much for me today.

I was doing so well with caffeine again, too. wonder what changed. stress/anxiety is up after a thing at work yesterday I guess

I keep having to re-learn this: queue your yaks, don't stack them.

If you find a new bug while debugging something, file an issue, and continue with your debugging, Don't complicate things by trying to do many things at a time.

Also: If you are wondering if this thread is about a specific thing you have in mind, it is statistically unlikely, because this stuff is happening constantly now and I'm seeing this same pattern happen again and again and again, both to people I know and to people I don't.
