Teabags with butterflies on the end of the strings are more expensive than plain teabags, but give me an incalculable amount of joy to use.

Spent the last several days designing a potions book for a Halloween party.

Oh, you know, just spending my evenings designing & manufacturing labware fixtures, like a normal adult human.

I thought I could get through the whole day without a coworker mentioning Talk Like a Pirate Day. I was mistaken.

When you have to git-rebase a feature branch with tons of conflicts and 100 commits across three areas of code expertise, so you make a spreadsheet of commits and pass the baton between three people. 🤦‍♂️

@davidcelis Ha! Derp. I totally didn’t notice the post date.

So, um the official Nintendo Twitter account is really leaning into the Stormy Daniels / Trump news, isn't it? 🤣

I don't know anything about Captain Marvel but this trailer looks awesome and I cannot wait.

I must be missing something obvious since I can’t seem to drag cards between lists (or even reorder them in the same list) on the Trello iOS app. Dragging scrolls. 3D Touch brings up the detail dialog.

@tekniklr Yes and no? The handle stays cool, but the body _does_ conduct heat and cools my coffee faster than I’d like.

Morning coffee in my Blue Ox Bar mug, while I work on revving the design of some laser-cut lab equipment.

Making invitations for our ⚡️HP⚡️Potions Class Halloween Party. @BrianEnigma

@tekniklr Same. (Except for the gouge I somehow got on the screen. Unhappy there.) Totally unclear what the new phones offer. Totally unclear what the new watches offer beyond a new info-overload face and ECG. And unclear how ECG is different from heartrate.

When Friday date night is pondering cryptics at a pub with @christinerose followed by a walk to Powell’s questing for a cryptic how-to book.

@tekniklr There are THREE NEW PHONES! And they’re different somehow. I feel like a few years ago, I might have been more on the pulse of what’s going on.

@boogah 👍 I still have a bit of a cognitive problem using “y'all” but found it was pretty easy to reprogram my brain to use “folks” or “friends” or “team” with very little effort and only a few embarrassing (to me, but probably not to others around me) self-corrections for slip-ups.
