Cracked into my journal for the first time in too many months last night. I say this every time, but man it felt good. I encourage everyone to keep a journal, especially if you're an aspiring writer. But even if you're not, give it a whirl.
Find a pen that you like. Get yourself a blank book that feels right. Lined or gridded or unlined, hardbound or softbound, glued, spiral, or properly bound, whatever suits you, and just... talk to yourself for a while.
It's good. Very good.
Playing with new Raspberry Pi 4! Woo. I'll be attaching the case to the back of my desk eventually, and I have a USB switch for kb+mouse, and a dual-input monitor. Nice to have an alternate low-key Linux desktop to switch over to that only sips electricity. Added a small cooling fan to the case and it's doing quite well.
Well, I laid down a little too much money on a semi-fancy e-ink ereader tablet. It's a bit daffy and I'm not sure I'll keep it yet. I wanted a not-Kindle so that I can actually read ePubs, not just Amazon's DRM crud. I have a fairly substantial library of ebooks that I actually own, not just "licensed" by some service that can yank them away when the mood strikes.
I'm debating on if I should return this (Onyx Nova Pro) for a Kobo model, though... Hm.
Today I tried the "impossible burger" to contrast it with the "beyond burger" I had last week.
It wasn't bad, and with regular burger toppings you'll be hard-pressed to notice a difference between it and a food-service-grade hamburger patty.
It doesn't taste like top-shelf beef and isn't worth paying extra for just in terms of taste, disregarding ethical choices. It tastes like a pretty ok quality cafeteria burger, with that whiff of textured vegetable protein flavor that seems unavoidable.
I'm generally an omnivore, but today I had some uncomfortable beef guilt over a tri-tip sandwich.
I ate a "beyond burger" plant protein burger the other day after my computer job, before going to a computer-based art installation.
I sat there in the shiny artificial fast food environment thinking about population pressure and dwindling resources and plant-protein-substitutes for The Masses and where we are as a society, and... well...
