  • Fence cat.

  • One thing I’ll be watching for at WWDC: how much will UIKit change due to the needs of Marzipan?

  • A little rain won’t stop our parade.

  • Due to extreme lactose intolerance, I have never had a Seattle Dog. Nonstop crying dot gif.

  • Get your official Ballard name in time for Syttende Mai.

  • Me: Let’s do everything on the main thread.

    Also me: No! Not those things! Obviously not those things!

  • With the property up for sale, my bet is that the Waterwheel will be shutting down. I’ve seen more of my friends sing songs there than any place else in the world. I’ve played more ping-pong there than at any other bar.

  • Further proof that the internet has collapsed all of space and time: I use YouTube to listen to music that was originally pressed on 78 rpm records.

  • There are two stages to getting older.

    Stage 1: “Can you believe how long it’s been since [popular song] by [popular act]? Crazy, right? So many years! Wow, I’m old.”

    Stage 2: “I’ve never heard of that song.”

  • One of my neighborhood’s cool traditions is the yearly Syttende Mai parade. It’s happening this Friday.

  • Two random but related Mac System Preferences tips: View > Organize Alphabetically and View > Customize.

  • This picture was taken the day of the Final Four games. The stadium reminded me of the Jawa droid transport ship. (And a little bit of a Viking ship as designed by Darth Vader’s crack Imperial design team.)

    US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

  • When I was at the Final Four semifinals, on the night before we got to go down on the court and shoot hoops. So cool. I made some baskets, but didn’t manage to sink any threes. It’s hard!

    Peple on the basketball court the night before the Final Four games. Empty stadium otherwise.

  • Grit is an open source app — currently in alpha state — for writing, editing, and publishing blog posts written in Markdown.

  • File under open web: Skeletron is a Mac app for creating, editing, and generating static sites from your Mac. I haven’t checked it out yet — but it looks good and I love the idea.

  • If you live in or near St. Paul, go see Live from New York! He’s a Prom Date! this weekend.

    It’s a one-woman show written by my uncle Pete and played by my aunt Jen. I so wish I could be there to see it.

  • Partial view of the Olympics right by my bus stop on the way to work this morning.

    Olympic mountains in the distance and trees in the neighborhood.

  • Note to Mac (AppKit) developers — it’s on us to be gracious and helpful to new Mac (Marzipan) developers. It’s the right thing to do.

  • I do that Spotlight trick for opening apps, where you hit the keystroke and start typing the name.

    And I’m so tired of launching Photo Booth when I want to launch Photos.

  • Kim Philby, in his grave, must be awfully impressed with this Trump/Russia business.

  • Here’s what happens. Eventually you lose your sunglasses and never replace them. Because you ain’t gonna shop. Won‘t shop. Hate shopping.

  • When Windows is a Linux distribution, and doesn’t just include a Linux kernel, then I’ll check it out.

  • Mt. Rainier with clouds, taken a few weeks ago.

    Mt. Rainier with snow and clouds, and trees in the near distance.
