Finished my last cup of tea of the year.

Now drinking my last champagne cocktail of the year.*

*(Okay, yes, the only one of the year.)

Sincerest thanks to the team at @24Ways for putting together yet another fantastic collection of articles on this—their tenth—year. Cheers!

All of my friends who have young children seem to be undergoing some kind of shared post-Frozen traumatic stress disorder this Christmas.

A good night out drinking with childhood friends, gently chiding me for turning out to be a complete fracking nerd.

Watched “Youth In Revolt” again …the only film to feature an acting appearance by my favourite astronaut, Michael Collins.

True story.

My haul of Brian Aldiss—or my Hauldiss, if you will—from today’s shopping trip to the Open Market.

The @Clearleft office temporarily empties while we step outside to wave at the people in space.

The next ISS flyover is in 90 minutes.

To the untrained eye, the fact that I spent the afternoon sitting at my desk making a paper robot could easily be mistaken for time-wasting.

One programming language with two demographics: JavaScript for kids, and JavaScript for grown-ups.

Watched the International Space Station fly by over to the west.

Now I’m wondering how @AstroSamantha’s espresso machine is working out.

It was an honour and a pleasure to be part of the recording of the 200th edition of the @WorkingDraft podcast this evening.

Vielen Dank!

Writing a technical blog post right before going to bed ensured a night filled with mundane dreams of web components.

I have an overwhelming urge to re-watch Gravity now.

Deskbeers have been delivered to @Clearleft towers, which means they should be perfectly chilled for the 4:20pm Orion descent.

Watching @ChrisMessina on Newsnight on BBC 2.

Because of hashtags.

This reality is weird. I would like a new one please.

New launch time: 2014-12-04T13:26:00Z

Thanks to @TheAvangelist for graciously offering to pick up some lunch for me so I don’t miss this.

The dawning realisation that I’m going to have to choose between lunch and launch.

Waiting for a new Orion launch time so that I can queue up the music from Sunshine accordingly.

“Race condition with the underscore S parameter…”

Sounds like launching a website.

Actually launching a rocket. #NASA_Orion

Tried out @TypedApp for writing my most recent blog post. It’s nice.

(the app, not my blog post)

Clicked on two different links to two different articles. Presented with two different popover ads.

Never did read those articles.

People who didn’t care when Yahoo deleted terabytes of content are now upset that Yahoo is making use of content people licensed for resale.

Demonstrating IndieAuth + Micropub to Jon and Charlotte.
