Binged watched World’s Toughest Race: Eco-Challenge Fiji over the weekend. I’d enjoy that kind of “suffering as endurance sport” a lot! Maybe I’ll track down a local one to try out next year. www.amazon.com/Worlds-To…

Most of the time activism is hard work. But there are rare moments when it is as easy as buying an incredibly smooth, delicious stout. blackisbeautiful.beer

Tink is two weeks old today. He’s at 3 lb 9.5 oz. His eyes are open and he walks like a mean drunk.

Love (Linear) & Hate (Racist Voicechat)

Slept in until 1pm. Yeah, my sleep this week was not good. Waiting for domain name transfers is one of the most annoying 1st world problems. Might give this “Notion as a micro-site solution” Fuition thing a try for fun. I think it could be a fun experiment to try a curated list site like …

Tink is now one week old and has already mastered the lazy, inappropriate dog sprawl. Good boy. He weighs 2 lbs 4 oz.

Life is Fragile.

One of Tink’s littermates passed away today. It was a freak accident that can happen with a giant mother and a one pound puppy. It was quite the emotional journey with the community around these pups. In a few more days the chance of that type of accident happening will go way down since these …

Meet Kalmar Tink!

Puppy based decisions were made today. Meet Kalmar Tink! He’s the one in the silver collar taking a nap admist the chaos (a good sign). He’s 3 days old in this picture and just shy of two pounds. We can bring him home in about 8 weeks. There might be an overload of blurry puppy pictures …

You can have any color you want as long as its black!

One of these remarkable little pups will be ours. There are two blue merle females, 1 harlequin male, and 3 black males. Since we have 4th pick, we’re assuming the merles and the harliquin will be snatched up so one of those handsome obsidian devils will join Skye. We’ll likely know for …

Murderbots & Puppies Oh My!

Slept in. Maybe there is a God! Arepas for breakfast! Cleaned up the kitchen. Started reading Network Effect, book five of The Murderbot Diaries by Martha Wells. This is such a fun series! “Books” 1-4 are really short novellas that you can get through quickly. Make your local bookstore …

Teenager at rest.

So Help Me I Responded to a Thread about Religion on Facebook

A Facebook friend of mine was engaging in some thoughtful discussion and disclosed upfront that he is an atheist. Someone responded with this: “So you’re floating in existence and just doing self defined moralistic worship of yourself? You’re always worshipping something.” That struck …

Changelog - Taytay to DT? I blame whiskey.

Spent an hour with an ops friend catching up on how we’re building all the things. I really enjoy these twice-monthly check-ins and updates. One thing we talked about is how important it is to write to invite and identify. We want the right people to identify that “hey, they know me …

Changelog - Cynicism to optimism

Started the work day with a very energizing product roadmap discussion with the tech co-founder. The dude converts cycnisism to optimism. It is a great superpower (no sarcasem)! Went on a long walk with Laura and made another round of critical “what’s next in life” decisions. I …

Mt. Hood Ramona Falls Hike

Important life decisions were made on this hike. The most critical was “put family first.”

Begin Again - The Camacho Weblog

So much has happened this year that it is hard to recap it all in writing. We may try do that in a podcast, but I need to write about what’s happening without it being a burden. With that in mind I need two things. First, I need a good starting point or a place to “begin again.” I …

New Twitter tutorial I found helpful. www.penny-arcade.com/comic/202…

More like game of the decade! Game of the Year 2019 - Double Xp

Apparently it was bring your kids to work day. Related, the “Chromebook for the kids” experiment is off to a fantastic start!

The Expanse continues to be the best sci-fi show on right now. The cast is strong yet somehow Shohreh Aghdashloo manages to steal every single scene she’s in. #ChrisjenAvasarala2020.

Finished up The Witcher and found it thoroughly enjoyable. But it is quite violent at times which made me wonder the same thing as this comic. www.penny-arcade.com/comic/201…

Fibery’s “Anxiety Landing Page had me ROFL! Respect to them! Hat tip to the Dense Discovery newsletter for highlighting it.

The Strange Planet captures Laura and I perfectly.

Dear Baby Yoda, For 2020 I wish for a kicking ass and taking names team up show starring Cara Dune and Frankie Adams. Amen.

Christmas 2019 memories.

Laura and Alana enjoy a quiet snuggle in front of the fire before everyone else wakes up. These quiet moments are the best part of the holiday for me.
