My favorite thing about YAML is how every time you use it you appreciate JSON a little bit more.

I just got started with Home Assistant and I am having a blast. Finding documentation in forum posts from 5 years ago. Editing config files with settings you aren't sure are valid in hopes your bathroom lights turn off. Signing up for developer accounts just to create a fake app to check your thermostat.

It's like a puzzle game where if I get real frustrated I can just stop playing and flick a light switch instead.

Being vaccinated does NOT mean it's okay to ask neural nets to participate in meme formats about pandemics that didn't exist when their training data cut off in Oct 2019. You will get memes that make no sense. Be smart.

I started Last of Us on my partner's recommendation.

I'm having the hardest time switching to action games after playing nothing but indie stuff. That and adjusting to a PS4 controller.

I keep hoping I'll press a button and instead of shooting a zombie we'll just play a game of volleyball as a metaphor for their parents' divorce

Me: "Hey, wanna come to ikea with me?"
Friend: "Sure! What furniture are you looking for?"
Me: "Uhhh..." :blobcatsweatflips:

I'm out to my friends
I'm out to my family
I'm out at work

That means there's one obvious next step in my transition

Random lewd nothing that popped into my head 

"Tall Girl Clits" to the tune of "Ballroom Blitz"

"That's nothin', bro. You should see my new flaked corn. These bad boys are going to keep you straight up f-l-a-c-c-i-d."

I can't stop thinking about the temperance movement this morning.

Just imagine your life's work inspiring people to try and make a cracker so bad it makes people quit jerkin' it.

Ask not for whom the booty claps

Designed a new card this weekend! It's for my brother, who's leaving tech for a company that installs and maintains suburban beehives.
