using org mode to configure taskwarrior feels very much on brand for me

I swear these shots are the two seconds right before a truly epic fight scene between us and the quarantine zombie horde.

Anyways we're married now.

Look out zombies.

My fake data generator should probable take less than 20 minutes to finish. Just saying.

What'd we do tonight?

We watched Coming to America 2.

Did we enjoy it?

We enjoyed it very much.

Even the lampshading?

Especially the lampshading.

I’d click that first one but I know I’m only going to be disappointed.

the fuckin smug nordic gamer face is wild to me too because it comes straight from 4chan's weirdo obsession with nordic-white people as like, "the ultimate white supreme race" but it's turned into this whole internet-wide meme

Filling in the docstrings on my project so when those who come after click “documentation” in the Django admin panel they won’t be more annoyed than before they clicked.

Joe Hayman's "Cohen on the telephone" bits are fun, especially the one poking at good old racist AF MFer Henry Ford:

"every time we started to talk Jewish, the Ford stopped running!"

"I say miss am I supposed to keep on saying 'are you there' and 'hello' until you come back? Well don't be long. Hello, are you there?"

Joe Hayman — "Cohen on the Telephone"

Many flavors of brains in this meeting. Not in a zombie buffet way, just —

You got me, blasting through at full speed like I'm on fire. And you got A, who can't help but examine every nook and cranny of their topic.

60m meeting. I needed 10. A has needed the rest.

Actually, was there ever a WB cartoon that pitted that scrappy little chicken hawk dude against the road runner as some ad hoc ally to Wile E. Coyote (in the same manner as the hawk becomes a manipulated ally of Foghorn or the Dog).

It'd be amazing because the Road Runner is some sort of chaos sprite. It doesn't win by being smarter, it wins by being fast and whimsically destroying the laws of physics. The chicken hawk wins by sudden and disproportionate violence.

There's absolutely no rigor to my numbers. Windows & Linux are the same machine, but Windows is via WSL. macOS is on an older MBP w/ < 1/2 the RAM of the PC, fan went so loud it sounded like me last time I tried jogging, but it still finished ahead of Linux.

BTW also confirmed that yes indeed: full test run is 10 minutes on Windows, 10 minutes on macOS, and somehow 17 minutes on Linux Manjaro.

The green dots started going slow when it hit pytest-playwright headless browser tests, so that's what I'm blaming for now.

Somehow having the "one more turn" problem with code. Just one more idea...

If I billed correctly for the hours, they'd have a heart attack and die.

That's like at least three problems right there.

I’m not reinventing a wheel. No no. I’m bedazzling the wheel I got.

I did a thing with Django Unicorn and a table and it's a terrible idea I should feel terrible but that'll be after I'm done being all giddy.

🤔 Looking at my Django project and thinking a particular application should be split into two. Not this split second, but I'll probably look up refactoring resources later.

That thing where you double-check the etymology of a word before you use it.

I know I can't be the only one.

What? Use the work laptop? Ha, no.

That thing makes my 2015 MBP look like some sort of thunder beast gaming machine.

Need to have access to VPN for more than my normal 15 minutes in the middle of the night, so switched over to the MBP and a nightmare aesthetics of adapter cables everywhere.

I can't think when people are watching.

Maybe not 100% technically correct but it certainly describes what my particular version of brain lock feels like.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
