Why they let a train through downtown Portland at rush hour is totally beyond my comprehension.

Today I learned that Jeremy Renner has his own app for super fans… 😱🤯🤪

Today I got to take a behind the scenes tour of the Portland Timbers’ stadium!

Just had to drop one of our laptops off at the Apple Store for the battery recall. I can’t believe they will have it for one to two weeks and not offer a loaner or compensation. That’s pretty crappy customer service for a $4k machine.

Why does Voldemort not have a nose? #showerthoughts

Sometimes I like to go to the math section of Powell’s and find the most obtuse applied mathematics book I can find, open it and say things like “Oh they just got that all wrong!” just to see how people around me react. 🤪

This is a bit of a long shot, but if anyone knows any C# devs looking for an awesome wfh/remote position, please contact me. It’s a perm position with full benefits, etc. Only catch is that they need to occasionally be able to go onsite to a client in the Portland metro area.

Today is the 40th anniversary of The Muppet Movie. I dare you to listen all the way through Rainbow Connection and not break out singing along with Kermit! I certainly couldn’t!!!


The boy learned how to drive Grandpa’s tractor yesterday. He really enjoyed it.

I continue to be very concerned that Swift keeps becoming increasingly unreadable to people unfamiliar with the language. Watching my son learn it has been incredibly eye opening.

Following @manton’s announcement earlier, Snippets has been updated to support the new Tagmoji category list.

I feel like my coffee filters are being a bit passive aggressive…

After the end of the OKC/POR series this year, I never would have thought I would find myself feeling sorry for Westbrook, but here we are… 🏀
