This was a couple of days ago. The weather’s gotten even drabber since.
Today the team and I logged our 1,004th bug. Having exceeded the thousand threshold, I am no longer able to pull the JIRA data to create my daily report to management. I win a prize!
I think I might actually not work tonight.
There’s a tiny dot in the road, way up where it starts to turn to the left in the distance. That’s a fox. He had been in our driveway. I accidentally scared him away by starting to yell “Get outa here, cat!”
My co-telecommuter-worker and I exchanged “God I am bored” pix during our team meeting Monday.
I have a killer head cold today. Ouch.
The High Holy Days are THIS weekend! And my new mudroom construction (or I guess, first, porch demolition) starts MONDAY!
So, in it all comes.
Notice the beets… I grew cylindrical beets this year. I hate peeling beets; the more spherical and small, the more I hate it. These were awesomely easy to peel. I could peel all day 😉
At the Essex Resort & Spa this weekend. We had a dinner chef’ed by her last night, and saw a cooking demo by her today. She is loads of fun!
“Panic is a form of hubris. It comes from the smug feeling that one knows exactly where the world is heading: down. Bewilderment is more humble and therefore more clear-sighted. Do you feel like running down the street crying ‘The apocalypse is upon us’? Try telling yourself, ‘No, it’s not that. Truth is, I just don’t understand what’s going on in the world.'”
“We are now creating tame humans that produce enormous amounts of data and function as very efficient chips in a huge data-processing mechanism, but these data-cows hardly maximize the human potential. Indeed, we have no idea what our full human potential is, because we know so little about the human mind.”
