Week 2457

(Previous | Next)

We had a three-day preview of summer, and I was able to get out on the road for quick rides on both Tuesday and Wednesday. I needed this badly; it both feels normal and reconnects me with this city I love. Even the overcrowded parts, such as where I had no choice but to shoulder-check a young woman with big anti-social headphones.

On Friday I went to the office, which is surreal, empty, and restricted. Still, it was also a taste of normalcy and I got to chat with colleagues in person and share whisky. Then walked from my office to Shannon’s to briefly meet with her coworkers.

I felt quite recharged, though that has been a bit nullified by a plunge back to shit winter weather.

2 Notes

Even in a newsletter for readings “pissed off about the climate crisis”, the idea it is irresponsible to boast about your meat consumption is too radical for the commentariet.

We’re screwed.

Late capitalism alert: a logistics firm in my grocer’s supply chain got “hacked”, and now I can’t buy cheese in Holland.
