A table in a cosy wooden-floored pub with a flute player sitting on one side and two fiddlers on their.

Playing some lovely tunes. 🎻🎶

Telling someone about the lovely line-up for @dConstruct, I realised it sounded like the set-up for a joke:

“A calligrapher, a musician, and a neuroscientist walk into a conference…”

Design is neither good nor bad; nor is it neutral.

Portrait of a beautiful brown dog with a brown nose and soulful brown eyes sitting in a pub garden in front of any ivy-covered wall.

My buddy Brody is very handsome (and A Very Good Boy).

Waves of yellowing grass covering the hillsides under ominous grey clouds.

A field in England.

There’s an interesting Venn diagram to be made of the people in my social circles mourning the passing of James Lovelock, Bernard Cribbins, and Mick Moloney today.

Gave blood. 🩸

Replying to a tweet from @ChrisFerdinandi

Chris, you acknowldge yourself that you’re notoriously bad at picking up on vibes. I was trying to let you know that offering unsolicited observations about mask-wearing when people post pictures of happy events is …not helpful.

Replying to a tweet from @ChrisFerdinandi

Chris, you seem to think I’m advocating for something I’m not.

I’m in favour of mask-wearing indoors.

But I don’t go around passing judgement on every picture I see of an indoor gathering. It doesn’t help.

Replying to a tweet from @ChrisFerdinandi

If you think that anyone who disagrees with you is automatically an asshole, then I can understand why you feel such sadness at everyone else’s behaviour.

Me, I’d rather assume better of people.

Replying to a tweet from @ChrisFerdinandi

Yes, I’m being defensive (because I found your judginess offensive).
