That the trigger phrase for Google Home is not “great googley moogley” is a missed opportunity.
Also ordered a new liquor cabinet, designed built-ins for the laundry room, setup a HomePod stereo pair for the media center, completely re-cabled the media center, and more.
Been extremely productive around the house over the last week or so. All new beds for the kids, new outdoor lights, planters for the back yard, more smart lighting, etc.
Watched Enola Holmes on Netflix last night with Lacey. Recommended. It was a little slow at times, but Millie Bobby Brown is an absolute delight. Hopefully they make a sequel or a series!
I can’t believe it, but I may actually be ordering the “large” iPhone for the first time ever. I’m a sucker for the best camera. I think all of my time with photographers has broken my brain!
Of all the objects in my possession, perhaps the most ridiculously Jonathan one is a preposterously overpriced doohickey for making perfectly clear cocktail ice. I do cherish it. I do.
Birthday dinner was Mexican food and jalapeño margaritas. Lacey and Colette made me a Chess Pie for dessert. Happy birthday to me! 🍸🥧🎉
Dropped off my mail-in ballot! I have voted, and it feels great to be done. Vote as early as your state allows. Track your ballot with whatever tools your state provides. Don’t leave anything to chance. #VOTE

I dare you to find a better weekday lunch than leftover Chinese food. I DARE YOU!
Just got my car detailed by a mobile washer, and I am staring out the window of my home office at a very lovely, very shiny Italian car. 😍🏎️
Diversity and inclusion workshop at work today! I love being at an organization that makes D&I a priority. 😍
Watched the first few episodes of Ted Lasso on Apple TV+ and enjoyed myself. Yes, it’s a bit sappy and over the top, but it is a nice, light distraction that makes me laugh. Worth a watch.
Epic Games with some serious chutzpah taking on Apple and its App Store rules. I am not sure its going to work, but Fortnite is incredibily popular, and kudos to them forcing the issue.
Just ate some breakfast pie. How's your day going? 🥧
In other news, I invented a cocktail. Into a lowball glass, add half a sliced plum, a half teaspoon of sugar, and a dash of peach bitters. Muddle. Add 2½ ounces of good bourbon, and stir. Add ice.
After dinner, I’ve got a date with a slice of pie, a scoop of vanilla ice cream, and a glass of Maker’s Mark on the rocks. 🥧🍨🥃
Had a bunch of fruit to use so I baked a pie. Blackberries, blueberries, plums, strawberries, apples, and black cherries. Smells good! Hopefully it tastes good :)
Nelson is 14 years old. He still has his passion for food, his sneaky demeanor, and an epic snore. He’s definitely slowing down, and he has lost so many teeth that his tongue constantly hangs out. Love my boy.
What We Do in the Shadows S1E6 is when I fell in love. Loving this show!
My goodness, the video from Beirut is terrifying.
2020 continues to 2020. Let's just pack it all up, humanity. It was a great experiment, but clearly we're not cut out to be stewards of the world.
Jonathan’s antitrust: 🍎 Require supported sideloading on iOS and iPadOS. 🔎 Privacy and tracking crack-down, ad regulation. 📦 Split AWS from Amazon, regulations on Amazon-branded products. 📘 Close the business. Give everyone their content. Throw Zuck in jail.
I have had a very hard time concentrating on work or enjoying life with all of this hanging in the balance. I'd like to think that we've all learned something as a country, and that things won't unfold like they did in 2016, but I am terrified that we'll have the same result – all of the polls indicating a Trump loss, followed by an electoral college victory for him without the support of the popular vote. I hope and pray for a resounding, deafening rebuke of Trumpism with a massive landslide victory for Biden and Democrats... but I expect a tight race to the finish.
Seriously, though, you can laugh about what happened today on Twitter, but the hackers could literally have started WW III if they wanted to. It’s terrifying.
So, maybe Twitter isn’t a great place for world leaders to disseminate potentially life and death communication, eh?
Nerd confession time! I’ve not seen a single minute of Dr. Who. Neuromancer is overrated (Snow Crash is better). I like the SmallTalk language. I think Kubernetes is almost always overkill. Bitcoin is dumb.
I find it amusing that people sling around the label “SJW” as an insult. Hell yes, I fight for social justice. Won’t stop until we change the world. Tattoo the label on my forehead. 😘✌🏻
Pardon me while I go watch #Hamilfilm on repeat until 2020 is mercifully over.
If you were ever curious how long your pug’s tongue is, just bring them to Palm Desert. You’ll find out pretty quickly.
Less than one day into this Palm Desert excursion, and I’m convinced this was an amazing choice. We just watched #Hamilfilm projected over our pool :)
I'm happy to report that the first pot of coffee from the new coffee machine is delightful. Very pleased so far 😀
Thanks for the feedback, folks. I ordered the Technivorm Moccamaster KBT. Arrives tomorrow. Huzzah! ☕️💫
Buying myself a new coffee maker for Father’s Day. I’m debating between a Technivorm Moccamaster KBT and a OXO Brew 9 Cup. Anyone have opinions or other recommendations?
I’m extremely happy that Safari will support the WebExtensions API in macOS 11. Even better, they’re adding the support in a privacy and security centric way. Bravo! 👏🏻
My little girl made me breakfast. Best cereal and toast I’ve ever had. Happy Father’s Day fellow dads!
Remember the iPod and iTunes Music Store? Customers were free to download and install music on their iPods, but the iTunes Music Store was still a runaway success. Same would be true for the App Store.
Apple could get itself out of a world of hurt and create a better overall experience if it would allow customers to download and install apps outside the App Store.
Made the mistake of looking at Nextdoor yesterday. The number of people gleefully bragging about not wearing a mask is sickening. Imagine being so obsessed with your political cult that you refuse to slightly inconvenience yourself so that others won’t die.
