Where I ramble about being tired of staying home ...

I’m a bit tired of staying in these days… I want to go see Shang-Chi, and want to be able to go see The Eternals, heh. I know that part is all shallow. I’d also like to be able to travel of course for vacations and celebrations. I’d also like to not have to think about whether or not we should host Thanksgiving for the whole family. Need to figure out normal again … or at least a new normal.

Where I ramble about hugo from my iPhone ...

Figured out how to be able to post to my blog from my phone for quick things. By using Working Copy, I can rather easily write up a quick post for Asides or whatever and get it published. It’s not the most user friendly overall but for a nerd like me it works fairly well. I thought about writing my posts somewhere else with a nicer client and then throwing a script together to pull that in and rebuild the site.

This is going to be the first year we don’t host Thanksgiving, nor do it with family, in 10 years.

Where I ramble about COVID-19 Myths ...

I’ve seen a lot of these shared. Good to see a trustable source set the record straight. https://www.childrensmercy.org/parent-ish/2020/03/covidmyths/

Where I ramble about what is possibly the best joke I've ever heard ...

Me: Want to hear a joke about ghosts? Them: <basically any response, e.g. “sure”, “no”, “meh”, “leave me alone”> Me: That’s the spirit Can’t remember where I heard this one, but it cracks me up.

Where I ramble about site search ...

I was able to figure out getting search running on this site with Lunr (interesting because this is a static site). I’ll need to see if I can do a write-up of my setup at some point after I have a chance to clean up some of the JS a bit since I didn’t see any really clear walkthroughs on getting this fully working from start to finish.

Where I ramble about the Neti Pot ...

Just tried a Neti Pot for the first time and I gotta say, if you’re having sinus issues and never tried one, you should look into it — Matt Walters (@mwalters) January 16, 2018
