Stopped off in Tim Hortons this morning and almost everyone in front of me was getting the new Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich.
Found out two things this morning: tetherball isn’t exactly the same as swingball, it’s a variant; and Amazon is charging 3x as much for a swingball set here in Canada compared to the UK.
At the pictures with the wee guy to see Detective Pikachu.
Told the folks in work and they asked what bike I have. “I dunno. A normal bike.”
Started cycling for the first time in over a decade and really enjoying it.
After 11 years, I finally made the effort to figure out the combination and find the key for my double-locked bicycle down in storage.
The handlebar grips had decomposed into a blue sludge so I managed to replace them with the MEC grips I must have bought 5 years ago.
Now I’m wrecked and I haven’t even pumped the tires. Who will pump my tires?
Google Cloud is down, so the half of the internet that isn’t hosted at Amazon is out of action. Sometimes it goes the other way.
I only have internal tools at Google Cloud (so far) so I’m not in a panic, but at least when Google or Amazon have problems customers hear about it in international news.
So tired this week.
Emboldened by @erinbee to try some of this craft mead I’ve had my eye on for a while. I went for the saffron and orange flavour, and it tastes a lot like a nice dry, sweet cider not dissimilar to Lonetree.
Had to laugh when a colleague was telling me about a 3-day coaching workshop that was basically teaching nihilism.
It was that moment when I realized that I’m missing out on a career as a life coach.
Kids keep mentioning some crab rave and apparently it isn’t The Fat of the Land.
Saw a pair of literal neo-nazis at our local thrift store today. The bloke had an actual swastika armband and the dame had some runic shirt. I was shoulder-to-shoulder with him at one point—and figured he was just a typically furtive addict—but only noticed the armband on the way out.
Was at the library and realized I’ve only got ten years to go before I can do the over-50s classes on how to use an iPad or a self-driving car or whatever it will be in 2029.
8YO: “Emo and goth are basically the same.”
Me: Hissing and receding into the shadows.
Came out of the bathroom at home and saw four origami caltrops placed neatly in a line in my path.
8YO: “Did you step on my spike traps?”
After he got off, about 10 PADS dogs in training got on at the next stop.
There was a knob in a MAGA hat on my train this evening sat beside an exhausted-looking hijabi. You don’t see many of these bell-ends in Canada—for obvious reasons—but they usually fall into two categories itching for a confrontation: edgelords and the mentally ill. At a glance, this guy was the latter.
I’d do the colour meme but the correct answer is black, so I’ll save you the bother.
Rare white shirt appearance.
Ah, here comes the illicit television for the week.
