Much Ado about Technology

On Second Thought...

Any other time, I'd see these ludicrously cheap fares to Tokyo as a reason to do a mileage run and enjoy a few days in a great city.

And then I realize why travel prices are falling through the floor and plan my next trip to Costco, instead.

It's So Hard to Move On

The worst part about training a new Pandora station is when a song comes on that you love, but is quite clearly not in the genre you're trying to curate. You have to thumb-down the song, but you also really would like to hear it.

Three Things Thursday: 31 October, 2019

We lost power on Saturday due to PG&E's idiotic need to shut power off when high winds pose a fire threat. We got it back late yesterday. For those unaware, this is simply because of mismanagement over the past decade by a for-profit utility. But hey, why get all political, right?

Three Things I'd Like Right Now:

1. A 12kw Generac house backup generator, since it looks like these week-long power outages, multiple times per year, are going to be the "new normal" for the next five to seven years, or so they say.

2. A week of stopped-time to catch up on my TODO list, reading, and dare I say a little television.

3. Delicious cake. Enough said.
