30 August 2014

Let me count the ways:

  • The icon my RSS client uses is of a newspaper printed on paper. RSS, RSS client, newspaper - that counts for three ways right there.
  • My t-shirts say nothing witty. I’m currently wearing one emblazoned with an enigmatic logo for a local bike/walk event and more importantly (if typography is any guide) THE LOGOS AND NAMES OF ALL ITS SPONSORS. There’s a white stain from some goop my daughter spilled on me that I half-heartedly and ineffectually tried to rub off with my nails. Update: I changed t-shirt.
  • My laptop has no funky stickers from events or projects. All there is, is a fading Intel Centrino Inside sticker it came with, that has been gradually rotating under my hand. It is now at a 30 degree angle, with traces of exposed glue on the upper side. I don’t plan to take any action about this anytime soon. Update: the sticker fell off.
  • I don’t have an interesting phone. My phone is as dumb as they come, and not in a hip way, more in a total-neglect and out-of-touchy kind of way. 2016 Update: gave in, now editing this in emacs on an new phone so I don’t even have the retro thing going for me any more. argh how do i type ctrl x ctrl s oh right volume down.
  • I’ve never changed my name on twitter. Why are people doing that? Update: I get this now, thanks to pikesley Update: I mean Only Zuul Update: I mean Galactus of the Left BIG PIPES Nun Of The Above Taylor's Wift Human Blockchain Unicode Batman Lord of the Flues Head of Snorkelling 6MillionBitcoinMan Sharing Economist Lol Cream Peter Gunn Jolly Local Swagman Dandy Highwayman Cubic's Rube Cyber with Rosie Cyber with Roadies Institute of Codeine Santos L.

  • The things I’m putting on this list and not putting on it no doubt reveal assumptions I’m making about what is hip that confirm further my squaritude in ways I can’t even imagine.
  • I totally get grumpy about the dumb things that kids are doing these days.
  • I totally get grumpy about how much sense the dumb things that kids are doing these days ends up making in the end.
