My #rstats goal for 2021 is modest– start using
glimpse instead of
head all the time.

Monday morning is the absolutely worst time for a cold rain storm.
State and local aid seems like the most important part of any congressional stimulus to avoid mass layoffs in 2022, and yet it seems like there’s no chance a good amount of funding ends up in any final bill.
Our politics are completely broken.
We have 4 floors at home, but a portion of the fourth floor is a deck. It’s nice that my office on the third floor is below the deck, because I get to hear the rain on days like today. Unfortunately, our bedroom gets virtually no rain sounds that don’t come from the HomePods.
Very fine people.
Ava was a strange movie. It had all the components of something great, but didn’t quite gel in the end. I am not sure why, but none of the relationships felt meaningful, despite a rich backstory. That said, Jessica Chastain can be cast in all the action movies please.

I miss having real snow now that I’m in Baltimore. The last big storm to hit here, and it was a bad one, was the year before I moved here. Even in the middle of quarantine, a big snow has a different way of shutting things down that feels special. I’d love a big one this year.
Every time the fan clicks on this 5 year old Macbook Pro, I check Apple’s store site on shipping times for an M1 Mac with 16GB of RAM and it’s gone back two weeks and I am sad again.

To feel loved, go away for three days after being home all the time for 9 months due to a pandemic and be greeted by your dogs.
It took me until this moment to realize that samosas and knishes are basically the same food product.
The 16GB RAM Mac Mini now won’t deliver until January 20. Did they way underestimate the desktop market that wants some RAM?
It’s been months since I watched Mythic Quest, but I still think about how much I love the character Poppy Li.
Should I be in a “Discord” of any kind? Am I missing something interesting by skipping out on these communities?
A recent discovery by a coworker— because of some work we did to be far more efficient with some bulk data processes, turns out we have to start thinking about the autovacuum/analyze settings again because we’re not guaranteed new statistics the way we were.

Apple Music Memos is done. This app is a great tool, and I’m very sad it’s going away.

I really wish Apple would release a HomePod-tech inspired AppleTV Soundbar. It would be an instant buy for me in secondary rooms.

Punditry can tend to focus too much on decorum and terminology, like the overachieving students so many of us once were, conflating the ridiculous with the unserious. The incoherence and the incompetence of the attempt do not change its nature, however, nor do those traits allow us to dismiss it or ignore it until it finally fails on account of its incompetence.

Oh fun. Your API returns dates as strings, and sometimes, just for fun, changes the string format. That’s so great. Love that journey for us.
Naomi Novik is now quite clearly one of my favorite active authors.
Two books to go on my Goodreads challenge in December means that my next book choice is quite possibly the most perilous of the year. A good one means smooth sailing to my goal; a slog could lead to my defeat.
My MIL is retired and lives at home with us. She loves ID, Discovery, TLC, Lifetime, OWN, etc. Because of that, we have had to pay for some form of live TV since she moved in with us 4 years ago. Discovery+ is going to save us at least $45 a month.

As someone who generally wants the web to move away from a monolithic culture who is somewhat tech, I will often run into pitches for the decentrtalized web. But I think this is a solid post that explains why a decentralized technology is not a solution to cultural decentralization. Instead, they may create culturally centralized spaces that cannot be meaningfully constrained.
I hate trivia so much. Everyone thinks I’d be great at trivia, because I seemingly know all kinds of useless things. So I always just feel bad, becuse what I know is so useless it doesn’t even come up during trivia.
