Had a daddy-daughter date today with Colette. We went down to Long Beach to drop a present off for her teacher, and then had a picnic lunch in Bixby Park. Now Iโ€™m watching Clone Wars with William. โค๏ธ

 

A new french bakery opened up in the neighborhood, right by the beach. Enjoying an incredibly tasty smoked salmon sandwich on a fresh baguette. Love my little slice of SoCal ๐Ÿ˜

 

Finally getting around to watching the Clone Wars animated series with my son. This is my first watch, and itโ€™s pretty great, though I admit that Jar-Jar Binks sucks just as hard you would expect.

 

Impeachment 2: Electric Boogaloo

 

Welp, I now have an M1 MacBook Pro on the way. Wasn't planning on upgrading, but my current laptop continues to give me issues. Pretty sure its the logic board.

Apple Silicon, here I come.

 

Pleased to report that the problems on my computer with external USB devices has been resolved. My LG UltraFine displays were acting as my "hub," but were super unreliable. Got an OWC Thunderbolt Dock, and all is now well!

 

My favorite holiday discovery is The Repair Shop, which you can find one season of on Netflix. There is just something special about skilled specialists, deep in their craft, bringing memories back to life that I find utterly delightful. Highly recommended.

 

In the pantheon of delicious liquids, where bourbon holds the throne, a very strong second place is held by pot likker. Sop it up with cornbread, and thank me later.

 

My house is full of wonderful aromas right now. Black eyed peas with salt pork, collard greens, and fresh baked cornbread. Cheers to good luck and blessings in 2021! ๐Ÿฅ‚

 

Just invented a tasty New Years cocktail. Bulleit bourbon on a large ice ball with a float of Martinelliโ€™s Sparkling Apple Cider. I call it a Kidโ€™s Table.

 

I test drove the VanMoof S3 and X3 at their pop-up on Abbot Kinney in Venice yesterday. Today, I placed an order for an X3! Very excited, other than the fact that it wonโ€™t arrive until Feb/Mar.

 

Watched Pixarโ€™s new film, Soul, with the family last night. It was beautiful. Highly recommended, especially if you have a soft spot for jazz!

 

For Christmas, Iโ€™ve been authorized to get myself an e-bike! Now, I have to figure out which one I want. Currently thinking about the VanMoof S3. Any recommendations?

 

I have ordered a Thunderbolt 4 dock from OWC to see if that will resolve the issue. Ideally, I'd like to move to a pro-level Mac Mini with Apple Silicon, but I want more RAM and ports than the current offering.

 

My 2017 MacBook Pro is having constant issues with USB peripherals randomly disconnect. Given that I haven't unplugged the laptop from its monitors in months, I am considering moving to a desktop, but timing isn't great right now.

 

Tonight, my daughter couldnโ€™t fall asleep, and came into the living room to see me. She said, โ€œone of the best parts about being a kid is when you canโ€™t sleep, you can go snuggle your dad.โ€

My heart is so full!

 

Bedtime no longer exists. Children just randomly walk the halls of my home like feral beasts, ensconced in the same pajamas that theyโ€™ve been wearing for days. Partially finished craft projects litter every square inch of my home. Save me!

 

Made a lovely little holiday libation to enjoy this evening. Bourbon, orange peel, simple syrup, cinnamon stick, clove, and orange bitters. Mixed and stashed in the fridge all day, then strained over an ice ball. Tastes like Christmas in a cup!

 

The Mandalorian season finale just BLEW MY MIND.

 

Roasting some vegetables and duck carcass to make a duck stock. Spatchcocked duck is seasoned and resting in the fridge. Itโ€™s Lame Duck a Lโ€™Orange night!
