An American friend of mine thinks beans on toast is disgusting. So to all none Brits (as we find it delicious)…is it disgusting to you?

Side note - I find it astonishing that someone from the country that invented “cheese in a can” can find this “dish” disgusting. 😂

@kev it’s just an open faced burrito with the wrong kind of packaging. I’d eat it! 😬

@RL_Dane brought a tear to my eye 😢 Precisely why is a matter of some speculation 😏. Well Done!

My wife unironically asked my eldest last night what he wanted for "first" dinner. I feel like we're raising hobbits.

@RL_Dane very true on all points, but hey! It’s a second hand clown car! Plus, I don’t watch sports. I have to do something for entertainment. 😬

Early on in dating my future wife, I noticed that even though she's objectively brilliant, she doesn't pay a whole lot of attention to her environment. One of my favorite things to do is randomly buy her flowers and place them somewhere in plain view in the house and see how long it takes her to notice them. We're going on day 3 right now for a bouquet on the kitchen counter. 💐 🤣

I remember back in college in the 90s having a lot of difficulty with the required length of writing assignments. I used all the tricks of squishing margins and larger font to make whatever it was I wrote look like there was more to it than there was. Now, I'm in college again in the 20s, and I have writing assignments. I don't know if the requirements have changed or I have, but writing assignments of at least 300 words? I can write you 300 words about my breakfast. Maybe I just talk too much.

I was looking up a quote for car insurance...

Based on nothing more than my name, birthday, and address, it had the names of all of my immediate family.

Um... No. Just heck no with all of that.

@RL_Dane I’m so glad that when I was in high school, the car couldn’t electronically send my kill ratio to the insurance company. Whew.

If I sleep in my bed for ~8 hours per night, and my dogs sleep on it for most of the other 16, is it even my bed?

@kev face it. We sleep in extra large doggie beds 😬

While getting ready this morning, I’ve heard my kids singing:

  • Leona Lewis
  • AC/DC
  • Neil Diamond

I don’t know if I should be impressed or worried? 😂

My Christmas present from my day job: As of midnight I'm no longer on call.

I'm on vacation, and my phone notifications are turning off. I'll not turning them back on until January. I've already turned off all my computers that aren't serving something to someone, and I'm going to unplug for the next week. If I can't do it on my phone, it's probably not going to get done until after the new year. Happy holidays everyone, whether you celebrate something or don't.

Finally, all the grades are in. Vacation day tomorrow. If I didn't have to get my kids to school at some ungodly hour tomorrow morning I'd say it was a good night for a beer or two. Hm.

@mike so a long walk would probably make the kids legs stronger……I’m a bad parent 🍻

It's only 11:30 in the morning, and I'm checking out of the office. I have a cloud migration tonight from 1:00 in the morning till 10:00 in the morning, so they're already squeezing a 13 hour day out of me. Just with a gap in the middle.

We cannot possibly comprehend all that the world lost at the hands of our ancestors. But we know they lacked understanding of what they had done.

But far far more is being lost by our hands today. Our descendants may not comprehend the depth of their loss, But they will know that we understood the consequences, and we did it anyway.
