It has been exactly one year since my last haircut.

First time in more than 15 years that my hair is long enough to put in a pony tail. Used one of my kid’s scrunchies. I cannot tell you how good it feels to have my hair off my neck.

I spent some time today reconnecting Day One to my blog and to Twitter after reading how @patrickrhone auto-journals. It works so well.

Neat. Late afternoon coffee now causes me heartburn.

Being over 40 is GLORIOUS.

‘Bout to have a cup of fully leaded coffee at 4:30 pm what could possibly go wrong

Everybody wants to edit Trump out of Home Alone 2 but no one wants to edit him out of Bobby Brown’s video for On Our Own smdh

I’m bad at math, but I’m pretty sure $1,400 is less than $2,000. Way to cave, Joe!

Looks like tough-guy Chad Wolf is a big ol’ quitter.

Bye, Chad.

After a lot of work, I have finally managed to use CloudFront and OpsWorks to set up two servers running a Rails app on a private subnet behind a bastion server with RDS as a database and a load balancer up front.

That sucked.

Anyone else feel like staying up until midnight to watch Parler drop offline?

Screen time was up 26% over last week. I wonder why. 😅

I was checked on my call to declare MAGA and Qanon “terrorist organizations.” It’s far more accurate to call them “white supremacist organizations.” Let’s run with that.

Given their role at the Capitol, could we also call Qanon a terrorist group? These folks fit the description.

Can we start referring to MAGA as a terrorist organization now?

Whatever typeface Trump’s campaign used for all of its signage needs to be retired and looked upon by the design community as a symbol of hate not unlike the swastika.

Reminder that the owner of the Philadelphia Flyers once had Trump thrown out of his private box because he wanted to watch the game and Trump wouldn’t shut up.

Does Russia have a social network? Asking for a banned POTUS.

Don’t think for a second that Twitter banning Trump isn’t related to the fact that Dems are probably going to start regulating the hell out of the tech industry now that they have control again.

Only four years too late.

However.

It fills me with joy to think about how angry he is right now.

I will never again have to hear reporters say, “Donald Trump tweeted.”

So happy right now.
