Interesting observation from recent technology related discussions: people are quick to use hypotheticals to assail a view they disagree with, just as quick to reject them when defending their own. The rhetoric seems to run towards this: for the former “If we do that, how do we possibly support situation X?” and the latter “Lets’ be practical, situation X doesn’t apply now and probably never will.”
This has been a pretty good week. Home brew club, positive changes and progress at work, and a fine night out last night with friends.

Today is off to a good start. Up early, worked out and feeling pretty energized. Despite the heat, gorgeous weather, too.
Always great to receive some sincere, spontaneous love and support. Thanks, Dad, for reminding me with some dear childhood memories to always search for and welcome joy.
Finally feeling better after struggling a few days. Worried tomorrow will be a backslide, kinda want to take a day but meetings prevent it.
Not ready to return to the office, yet. Crummy day for a walk so maybe hit the nearby record shop for a bit?
Super grateful for lunch provided by $employer 3x a week but couldn’t handle the line today.
Still struggling today. Have to be “on” for sprint end activities at work. Trying to emit positive karma, keep up more positive self talk.
