My 7 year old walks into the kitchen with his favorite pajamas on. He’s comically outgrown them. Stomach sticking out. Ankles showing. He sighs and says “Alexa… Add Ryan Pajamas to the shopping list.” Then shakes his head and walks out.
My favorite part of the Home Run Derby are the little kids shagging flies in the outfield. ⚾️
One of the things I love about Squarespace — and one reason why I’ve hosted my site with them for over 10 years — is how easy it is to adjust the look of my site. I know there are other, cheaper, options, but I haven’t found anything easier.
Celebrating Independence Day 🇺🇸 by relaxing at home and watching my Cubs ⚾️ on ESPN.
I’m sure the rumored Apple laptop will be called the “16-inch MacBook Pro (2019).” But personally, I’d love to see the name PowerBook return to the lineup.
MacBook > MacBook Air > MacBook Pro > PowerBook
Went swimming with my Apple Watch 4 for the first time tonight. Automatically started a workout and accurately kept track of my laps. Pretty nice.
Taking the day off from work to (hopefully) finish my mass communications history paper. Current soundtrack: Motown.
Ryan had a blast at soccer tonight and scored his first goal. (Also awesome about 7-year-old soccer… hugs for parents between quarters.)
7-year-old: “Riverdance. That’s where I get all my sweet moves.”
Our 11-year-old is now almost as tall as her 14-year-old sister. (And big sister isn’t exactly short.)
I now have my entire Facebook post history in an Excel spreadsheet. The first step in trying to build a physical book with all my family stories from the last 11 years.
I took today off. So of course I’m sitting in a coffee shop researching the history of the Linotype.
Just submitted an academic paper to a conference for the first time. I’m proud of how it turned out, even if I was required to use Times New Roman. (This whole designer-to-academic transition creates some really odd personal issues.)
Today was a great day to be a geek… a new Avengers: Endgame trailer and an awesome Star Trek: Discovery.
Captain Marvel was amazing. I think this was the first superhero movie my 11-year-old daughter really enjoyed.
Just came across a tutorial for using Python for sentiment analysis on the Programming Historian site... add to that the use of Python in type design and data visualization. It really seems like the language I need to learn.
My seven-year-old: “This cereal is two of my favorite things… fruit and pebbles.”
