City is doing roadwork a block away from my apt to strip off old asphalt, so right now that road is rough and bumpy. Today I got stuck following a black sports cars which was navigating all bumps and lumps at 4 mph—didn’t want to risk scratching his pricy car, I think.

A paradox: only a fast car is that slow.

Puzzling tracks on our patio: similar to Moria’s mithril inscription it only shows if it is hit just right by sun glints.

A snail?

Working in Ross's flagatorium. Today this Clinton-looking guy actually says -- to wit -- "Sir, mind if I bang this?"
"Look, man," I say groggily. "Two busy months of guarding -- I toil! And wary historians still insist I can't fuck it."

Plz climb upwards inch by inch

My 2yo was sitting in dad's comfy chair just now, flipping through a copy of "A Void" (which contains no illustrations), chanting "ABCD...". But didn't know to skip 1 glyph in that song!

Our kid trilingually nags us to watch youtub: “看dump truck, grävmaskin”

This morning, finally hooking up with my pharmacist:

Oh I'm up for it
I was waiting so long for this
Yah baby, put your big thick Johnson into my body
Oh! hang on, if you push it in that far it hurts a bit...
...Mm, right in that spot...

I took that long, thick Johnson.
I took a Johnson & Johnson (that's two Johnsons in 1 go!)
Now it hurts a bit, down in that spot, as I walk around...

Flaming Fox, Air Wolf, Dirt Dog... Aqua Jackal?

challenge: explain regular expressions without using the letter 'e'

My kid can say a color now, and as that saying has it, onto-making is phylo-making told again. His first color word is ⚪, much as you'd think from B. & Kay's 1969 book.

This morning I saw a cross-lingual compound noun: I told him "mjölkglas" [glass of milk], and tot said back "奶glas", snapping part of it back to a sticky word.

Noting how particular words "stick" for my kid. Long ago (about 6 months?), "car" was "ba", to conform to a small bunch of consonants that a kid can say. And now, if you say "car" to him, tot *still* says back "ba".

I'm admiring this high-accuracy song-book illustration for Brahm's lullaby. Although a full holy host is trying to lull him—a miraculous act of God!—that kid *still* sits fully upright and is not drowsy at all.
