Very excited to announce I started @elastic@twitter.com today, as an SRE working on @swiftype@twitter.com πŸ’–

Brighten or worsen my day with the 19th pic in your camera roll!

Don't explain unless I ask you to, then repost this with the number I give you.

Yesterday was my last day @npmjs@twitter.com, and I leave in the knowledge that despite the recent horrors the current C team have wrought, it has truly been the most amazing group of people I have ever worked with. All my love to @npm_support@twitter.com and engineering.

Je suis wombats.

So far this month, despite not frequenting pubs very much, I've had the opportunity to scratch in "and that's ok! πŸ–€" to the end of 2 lots of homophobic graffiti in 2 different local English pubs.

Happy Pride. πŸ’–

unfortunately i go to the store regularly so had another encounter with Marty the robot. i'm about to write to the company and am pretty sure i'm finding a different store.

beyond the security fears (it's been reported this has the capability to keep an eye on stock levels as well as spills and we all know customer profiling is coming) it was also COMPLETELY IN THE WAY on a busy Sunday morning in the produce department.

it also kept reading people in front of it as a spill, which was continually announced over the speaker system. there were, in fact, no spills.

My baby brother always had a way of surprising me.
In response I became very good at solving the unique problems he created.

So when he told me about the pretty fish in his kiddy-pool, I just assumed he had raided the neighbor's tropical fishtank.

After a brief panic, I was ALMOST relieved to find out he hadn't.

I wasn't sure HOW he'd caught a full grown mermaid or how I was supposed to return her to the nearby ocean, unseen.

Best review of Oceans 8: "It took eight women to do the work of eleven men." πŸ“½οΈ

Yay, another overnight stay in hospital due to a mystery hand infection. πŸ™„

Leaflets for local council elections got put through the door this week.

It's almost a parody that the Labour leaflet can be fully recycled while the Conservative one is coated and can't. πŸ™„

Psst, I'm on the look out for new senior SRE positions, so if anyone has any leads give me a toot. πŸ˜‰
