I've had my GPD XD+ for a week or two now, and my verdict? Its an absolute blast. Pairs wonderfully with my portable projector, too!

 

For those of you who don't know, the GPD XD+ is a weird Chinese handheld that looks a lot like a Nintendo DS, but runs Android. Perfect for emulation!

 

Made 36-hour sous vide carnitas for dinner tonight. Delicious! Leftovers for days πŸ˜€

Some people will praise this person, but they shouldn't. They're trading the safety of our nation for tax cuts, military spending, and deregulation. Don't "quietly resist from the inside" – work to save our nation by removing the threat from office.

Seriously, if you're in a position to actually do something to save us from this tyrant, and you write an anonymous op-ed patting yourself on the back for barely keeping him in check so you can win Supreme Court noms, you're a coward of the worst kind.

 

Yet, they won't do anything to save us from the danger, because they want tax cuts, deregulation, control of the Supreme Court, complete privatization of healthcare, and to strip away abortion rights. Moral bankruptcy.

Spot on piece! Summarized my frustrations perfectly.

Thrilled to have amazing tickets to see The Nightmare Before Christmas at The Hollywood Bowl in late October. Box seats, baby! πŸ“¦πŸ’Ί

 

My biggest issue with my AirPods is keeping them (and the case) clean. They can get pretty nasty!

 
 

Checked into The Strand House

Meeting a customer.

Headed to the Bowl for Harry Connick, Jr.

 
 
 

Another magical show at The Hollywood Bowl as the summer comes to a close. One more show for us this season. ❀️

 

Loving the Rams! This game has me amped for the season. 😎🐏🏈

 
 
 

Off to Boston for work on an early flight. See you soon, east coast. ✈️ 😴

 

Sweet, sweet @Delta One upgrade. πŸ™

 
 
 

Checked into Fenway Park

Boston Red Sox game at Fenway in a box!

 
 
 
 
 
 

I bet it would be possible to create a list of 65 people that Jeffrey Dahmer knew that he didn’t eat. I’m just saying.

 
 
 

Checked into krust

Coffee and donuts before kids soccer games!

 

Yellow Jackets are playing extremely poorly. This may be Paul Johnson’s swan song year.

 

On the other hand, Miami is an OL and a QB away from being elite.

 

So I meant that Miami is like 5 OL away from being elite... so frustrating. Talent isn’t that poor, they’re just terribly inconsistent and unreliable.

 

So proud of my little girl Colette for kicking some serious butt today in her soccer game! Big breakthrough in confidence for her. ❀️ ⚽️

 
 
 
 
 

Sunday thought, after today’s powerful message in my church. Someone should create a Twitter account that replies to every unhinged tweet from our POTUS with relevant scripture that CCs the VP.

 
 

I absolutely love Sean McVay’s offensive play calling for the Rams. Would love to see @MarkRicht and @CanesFootball use a similar approach. Talent maps nicely, with great running backs and WRs with size and speed.

 

This is fantastic news. Too often, I’ve heard others in tech defend Linus’ behavior as an example of avoiding political correctness, or of meritocracy in action. The reality, which Linus now sees, is that his behavior was toxic, and set a terrible example for so many.

My good friend David has just reached "green light" status on his funding campaign for his short film, Blind Date, which looks amazing. Throw him a few bucks or even just "Like" and "Follow" his page! Go, David, go! – https://www.seedandspark.com/fund/blind-date

 
 

Thanks to my lovely wife's research, we were just able to book a trip to Maui for the whole family in January for $380 (plus SkyMiles). Colette will be spending her birthday in paradise!

Midweek Enneagram class with Lacey.

 

Checked into El Segundo Fish Company

My favorite lunch place near the office.

 
 
 
 

I’m interested in building a @draftsapp action to publish notes via Micropub. I’m finding their documentation inscrutable. Anyone have pointers? Source for a similar action (perhaps publishing to Tumblr or WordPress) would be super helpful.

 
 
 
 

N’Kosi Perry is making me smile ear to ear! Go β€˜Canes!

 

Checked into Moon Donuts

Kicking off the boys trip in style!

 

Off for a relaxing boys trip with my little man William! He turns five at the end of the month, so we are celebrating with a trip to a lake resort and then LEGOLAND. ❀️

 
 

William has decided that Ndamukong Suh is actually Donkey Kong Soup and I’m so happy to be alive right now. 🦍🍜

 

Rams defense is uncharacteristically porous today. Offense has scored plenty, but has been sloppy. Hoping we can escape with a win!

 

Checked into Decoy Dockside

Dinner with the little man.

 
 
 
 

Having a blast with my little man on our special trip. Capturing tons of great photos with my new iPhone XS. Will post a gallery later tonight after he falls asleep.

So much diet cheating. Oh dear!

 
 
 

Checked into Riviera United Methodist Church

Enneagram seminar: week two!

 

Deejay Dallas reminds me so much of Frank Gore now that he’s filled out. Love watching him run the football!

 

College football deserves a dominant Miami Hurricanes team. Not there, yet, but the future is looking pretty bright. 🏈

 
 

While I'd greatly prefer a hard "no" from Flake, I am thankful that there's still hope. Any delay is helpful. More time to protest, call, and make this vote more difficult. Don't let up.
