Work is over. Took tomorrow off. Printed out @taniel’s guide to the election. Snacks will go in the oven shortly. Just cracked a beer. LET’S DO THIS.

Not seeing nearly the level of shenanigans that I expected to see today. Mostly I figured there’d be a bunch of Trump nuts with guns wreaking havoc at polling stations. So far, I haven’t seen that.

Avoided the news for a few minutes by coding something for Drafts. Welp. That was fun.

Upstairs toilet overflowed. Tiny bit of water dripping from the kitchen light fixture.

Guess it’s gonna be that kind of day. Which does not bode well.

I have somehow trained Instagram’s search pane to show me nothing by cute videos of French bulldogs. Not even a little mad about it.

Can’t think of the word astonish without remembering this panel from Joss Whedon’s X-Men.

I can’t concentrate my way out Of course it’s been happening all along Permanent intervals What about…? As you become obsolete, who are you? I begin to go through another of that we have been Oh this place… I can’t concentrate I have been entirely patient

Nine Inch Nails - Dear World,

Glad we got outside to a park yesterday. Today’s supposed to be really dreary and rainy.

Me, a parent: My kids will have limited screen time!

COVID: school is now a tablet, teachers play infinite youtube vids lolol

Yellowbird’s ghost pepper sauce has become my new go-to for just about everything. It’s sriracha-style, so it’s on the thick side. So, so good.

I miss staying in hotels.

My kid found an anime show on Netflix and now it’s her favorite thing ever. She’s been trending toward anime for a while. Stoked to see her getting into it on her own.

When Bill Murray eventually dies, I’m probably gonna need a couple days off work.

Chris Cillizza writes like a white male high school journalism student—awful prose, thinks he’s clever, and no one has ever told him he’s an imbecile.

Switched Drafts to a monospace font and enabled the vivid dark theme, dropped the font size to 15 pts, and upped the line height to 1.4 pts. SO MUCH BETTER. Dunno why I didn’t do this sooner.

These SCOTUS hearings are nonsense. The decision has already been made. Might as well skip the partisan screaming matches and confirm her already. If Kavanaugh made it through, this woman should literally waltz to the finish line. 😡🤬

AirPods spatial audio is bonkers. Like really really bonkers. I love it.

When you order pizza from a Van Halen-theme restaurant, you listen to Van Halen. That’s just the rules.

Love too get shouted at by my kindergartener because I’m on a call and she can’t hear her class.

People went into tonight’s debate expecting Pence to actually answer a single damned question.

LOL

The little gray imprint left on your hand when you smack a mosquito is oddly satisfying. Hate those stupid things.

If anyone wants to try out the Drafts-based Micro.blog composer I mentioned, you can download it here. Note that this is entirely ripped off from my friend Tim Nahumck. He built a Fancy Tweet action that I modified for this. Read Tim’s latest Drafts Review at MacStories here.

It works!

A friend of mine wrote a fancy tweet composer for Drafts. I’m trying to adapt it to Micro.blog.

My break from the news is going to be tested severely by the debate tonight.
