I don’t do a whole lot of work with tools, but when I do, I invariably carry a tool off to another room and leave it there absentmindedly, then can’t find it when I need. All. The. Time.

I have a bunch of their charging cables. They work fine until suddenly they don’t.

It probably was, but my PB&J was pretty darned good. In fact, I think I’m going to have another.

Austin schools will have the choice between 100% in-person school or 100% school from home. It’s up to us to decide what to do with our high schoolers in the fall. But at least we have a choice.

I played a gig on Saturday and got paid $200 in cash. It was kind of weird. I rarely use cash any more. I also finally got used to depositing my checks by phone. I only go to the bank now if I need to speak to somebody. And even then, they’re removing most of the tellers from the banks.

I nerd out about certain coins and keep them when I find them. For example, all quarters from my birth year (1966) and all Bicentennial quarters (for nostalgia; I still remember the first time I saw one and thought it was the coolest thing ever). Otherwise, I hang on to the oldest coins I can find, and those are Read more

I’ve had it and worn it regularly since January. First automatic watch I’ve ever had.

The possible workaround did include three hours of face-to-face such as a seminar with your instructor, but yes, the language does seem clear. At this point, I think universities are really scrambling to find any wiggle room they can.

The secondary schools here in Austin are going to be either 100% in person or 100% online. There was talk of a hybrid to keep class sizes smaller, but I guess we’ve abandoned that idea. Seems like a no-win situation to me.

Like I said, I’m not sure and don’t quote me. Since it’s based on some inside information, I’m going to pull back the update.

I think that there is an exception for foreign students who stayed in the US. Which means that if you stayed here you can take online, but you can’t take online if you went home to China or wherever. So that kind of makes sense, but it’s not clear in the order.

Today and every day. It’s pretty much the only watch I own. I’ve got a couple of cheap digitals, but I prefer analog. It gains about a minute a day, but I don’t mind resetting it when I put it on. Been meaning to take it to a shop to get it adjusted, but just haven’t gotten around to it.
