Week 2441

(Previous | Next)

My aunt Helen passed away; I guess technically at the end of last week. I’m reviving childhood memories of her by eating St. Louis-style Italian food and remembering her hospitality during the infamous Colorado Springs repossession operation.

The one-on-one introductions to our program team seems to be paying off; I see formerly-quiet team members speaking up more in my presence and some pro-actively bringing things to my attention. Hopefully it helped make me disarming when I ran a tangential meeting many of them attended and brought goats into the video call.

It’s palindrome week, and almost solstice. How auspicious!

The next two weeks should be very quiet, I need to motivate myself to write or build something rather than fritter the time away playing Outlanders.

3 Notes

When we return to offices I will have to learn how to use “rooms” and “walls” instead of Miro boards.

What’s a word like “mansplaining” but for veering beyond the lane of your expertise? Currently visible among “computer guys” talking about AI and doctors talking about epidemiology. https://twitter.com/ID_AA_Carmack/status/1340369768138862592

My pitch to the streaming services: reboot Love Actually and then spin off countless additional films in the Romcom Cinematic Universe.
