Got the turntable set up at the new place today. I love listening to records.

I measured it and found that the new Apple Pencil is 1,000,000 times better than the old one.

I miss having a darkroom, but I’m beginning to make plans for one. I can’t wait to be fumbling around in the dark, cursing and breathing chemicals again.

I’ve been making an effort to use fewer exclamation points in my writing. It’s surprisingly difficult. I worry that without them, people will misunderstand my intent. Maybe I get one per email and can use them in single-word replies: “Sure.” vs “Sure!” etc.

I haven’t been able to find my TWSBI 580 for months, so it’s probably time to admit it’s gone. I loved that pen. On the other hand, I’ve been using the fancy Pelikan instead and I really love that one. So, silver lining, I guess.

For grins, I changed the theme of to the most boring one I could find and am leaving it alone for a bit to see how it wears.

I’d just like to repeat my appreciation for’s author, David Merfield. He’s responsive, helpful, and friendly. Between @manton for and David for, my blogging infrastructure is in terrific hands.

G doesn’t enjoy the snow, but I don’t mind it. As long I don’t have to drive in it, I say bring it on. Yesterday was our first snow and it made everything look lovely.
