I ordered a Mac Studio as soon as they were announced, and was very excited to get my shipping notification. Sadly, for me, my computer has just moved across China... and then stopped. Hopefully it'll be here soon! I'm ready... Continue reading

A little while ago I took this 16Personalities personality test and it told me that I'm an Architect - specifically an "Assertive Architect" (if you take the test using this link it'll compare our personality types! You'll finally figure out... Continue reading

The list of things I'd need for an unplanned overnight hospital stay wasn't as long as you might think. As I was packing my bag I got it down to: Laptop iPad (though this is a luxury that could be... Continue reading

While looking for something I lost (a power cord) for a gadget I own and yet don't need (a fancy hardware video switcher) I found a Star Trek ornamnet that I forgot I had purchased (and didn't put on the... Continue reading

The real problem is that at some point Wawa reduced the size of their XL cups from 44 ounces to something about 36 ounces. Yes, I’m still annoyed by it. Continue reading

One of the best things about living in a big building in the middle of a large city is that you’re surrounded by people but they don’t know you. This means you don’t have to stop all the time and... Continue reading

When dealing with a toddler it can sometimes be difficult to know if they are doing the exact opposite of what you asked them because they don’t understand you or because they are tiny jerks. During bedtime tonight Declan brought... Continue reading

Over a year ago when we bought the studio apartment next to our apartment one of the seller's requirements was that they get to keep the light fixture in the kitchen. We didn't actually like the light fixture, so that... Continue reading

Runkeeper, for whatever reason, asks me to take a selfie at the end of my runs. Which I do, because I do what my phone tells me. This leads to collages like the one above, and very amusing entries in... Continue reading

We’re spending the week “down the Shore” as they say in Philadelphia, and I’m happy to report that based on people’s behaviors the pandemic is over! Hurrah! Good job, everyone. Now, I haven’t been in many shops because, as you... Continue reading

Why did I start a newsletter? No real reason, if I'm being honest. Just a thing that I did. Check out the first issue: Why a newsletter? - Issue #1 | Revue. There is a non-zero chance that the first... Continue reading
