just opened up a bag of tea that only brews 80ml of tea. the absolute nerve

oh don’t mind me, im just deploying prod at 8pm on a sunday. nothing to see here!

about to willingly use Single Table Inheritance in a Rails app and i’m wondering what in my life has lead me to this moment

☕️ just cut open a new bag of beans and brewed a perfect shot on my first try 🥴 this is one of those moments where i should go out and buy a lottery ticket right?

Coinbase is a mission focused company… and that mission is to minimize shareholder value 😌

apparently someone subscribed to my blog feed in GitHub’s slack ages ago and now that i’m using my blog to post my tweets, all my dumb little posts are spamming one of their slack channels 😎

i was already deeply tired of seeing lots of Depp v. Heard videos pushed onto my TikTok feed but the sheer number of memes just keeps intensifying. i am begging the gods for sweet release. please stop showing these to me, i do not want to see them

listen, i'm glad everyone is here/back but platform metacommentary alone won't be enough to make this stick. you need to start posting inane nonsense

what did you eat today. did you see any cool bugs

everyone meet my son, cliff. he’s a focaccia with rosemary, garlic, and sea salt. he’s not adopted; i made him myself today!

sauman aux lentilles, a classic french pairing. i chose some beautiful king salmon and cooked up a batch of deliciously woodsy, herby, mustardy, bright lentils

another pizza night!

1: veggie supreme. mozzarella, red sauce, mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, basil, provolone crust
1.5: same but with olive
2. classic pep. mozz, red sauce, hot soppressata, basil, provolone crust
2.5: “impossible burger”. cheddar, ketchup, mustard, seared impossible crumbles, diced onion, b&b pickles, sesame seeds, cheese curd crust.

thanks to @sardinebrunch@instagram.com for the burger pizza idea. it was a big hit!

impossible piri piri meatballs, with the sauce mixed with extra tart icelandic yogurt to make a sauce better suited for pasta. i think that, in meatball form, it’s a bit easier to tell it’s not meat… but who cares? delicious!

this was gonna be my second time making pan pizza, but something went awry. six hours out of the fridge and way too little activity. there goes tonight’s dinner ☹️

made some rigatoni alla vodka with mushrooms for dinner! it’s a really quick and easy sauce, and it turned out delicious. y’know what’s not delicious though? cops. ACAB
