I guess I'm going to be trading in browsing Redfin/Zillow on weekends for browsing Microacquire now https://twitter.com/agazdecki/status/1418546203436871691 …
Audible sent me a notification that The Martian is now free to listen to, so that’s what I started on for tonight’s run. All the reasons I love this book (hard sci-fi) are probably why someone else out there dislikes it. Have you read this book? Recommend me more sci-fi!
Children are great. You can say “huh does this armpit smell like lavender or roses?” and one kid will come sniff, be grossed out, then trick the other kid into coming to sniff it. The armpit did not smell like either flower. 10 mins of cry-laughing.
Sometimes it’s just so much easier to tweet about life / kids / coffee / food / cocktails / books (which is what I do with the majority of my time) than building indie saas products. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
I’m still working on my products, just taking a break from talking about myself! Nothing to worry about, just a lot of changes in my life recently. I won’t take a break from promoting other people’s successes though.
Some readers think they are helping authors with traditional publishers by waiting to buy books directly from the author. But it is *infinitely* more helpful to preorder from a retailer. Preorders have a more immediate impact and more clearly indicate success to *publishers.*
My coworker is presenting about Datadog traces and his dog keeps running over to say hi every time he says "dog" and this is the kind of thing I would miss if we went back to in-person.
Made a Turkish pizza Lahmacun tonight (from Arabic laḥm ʿajīn — “meat with dough”). Minced meat, tomatoes, onion, chili’s, s&p, on a flaky crust. I liked it. My family said it’s way too high meat to bread ratio, and politely requested that I not make it again. Swing and miss!pic.twitter.com/A9Kb8Fxnq1
Recipe authors: if you used weights to talk about your ingredients you wouldn’t need to say shit like “scant 1/4 cup olive oil”.
