Welp everybody's cool/interesting intros are making me nervous to do my own, but apparently everybody auto-follows me on join so I should do an #intro too 😅
I'm David (he/him)! I help write and maintain open source software at a company called HashiCorp. I'm also a musician (🎹🎺🗣🎙) and I've been in a couple singer/songwriter and folk groups. I'm on a couple albums and am super proud of them! You can take a listen if you want 😬
i made the Bûche de Noel this year!! lots of nerve-wracking firsts for me:
first #genoise, first #ganache (which separated and then got too hard when it set), first #swissroll (didn’t get much of a roll tbh) and first #meringue (unfortunately not pictured… it ultimately ended up fine but i didn’t have time to get the mushrooms assembled)
hello i made these phyllo canapés with brie, cranberry, and rosemary may i please be on the great british bake-off now
might be on an indian food kick… made some paneer saag and chicken makhani in the ol’ instant pot
WE BUILT THIS
The world’s first time traveler was just a boy who created a machine. The moment before he first switched it on, he appeared to himself as an old man.
“Don’t,” the old man said.
The boy hesitated, but he remembered how angry he was at every adult who ever tried to hold him back.
“Fuck you, old man,” he said, smiled, and hit the switch.
In an instant, he was old, standing before his younger self.
“Don’t,” he said.
