• My brain is incapable of remembering what monads, functors, and currying are.

    I also can’t ever seem to remember what a logarithm is.

    I’m not proud. I’m bugged.

  • The Big Meltdown brings roofalanches.

  • I can’t see them, but I can hear AT-ATs slowly crunching in the distance.

  • Like all good Americans, I’ll be rooting for the Rams today. Go Rams!

  • I had 12 bugs. After working pretty hard and fixing a half-dozen or so bugs, now I have 11 bugs.

  • I have never taken a selfie.

  • Yes, “Shake Em on Down” has been my obsession for a while. One thing I love about songs like this is how very different is each artist’s take.
