Today I’m deploying a vm together with 3 other colleagues. I’ve been told this is going to be the last time we need to deploy a vm on that environment, but the fact I need to show how to do it to 3 different people shows the amount of trust in that statement. Mondays, right?

They might help me live longer but they sure take a lot of fun out of that longer life…

It’s one of those “Wow, today is really great, I have so much energy and wow, look at this weather! I’m going for a nice long walk! It been long since I had the energy to do long walks like this, I wonders wh.. Ah shit I didn’t take my meds this morning…” days

I went for a walk and found out the weather is just perfect. Not too hot or cold, no blinding sun or rain. Why was I even inside all day till now?

Casual conversation with a women I haven’t met before:
w: wel, I am a fair bit older than you, so…
m: are you sure? I think we’re about the same age, no?
w: No, probably not, im from XX
m: oh, I’m from the same year…
w: 😧🤭

Damn this babyface. And I didn’t even shave!

I had a crazy dream my hot tub and pool was overflowing with raw sewage. So when I woke up in the middle of the night I got up to check it out. Of course I have no hot tub or pool, so after staring at stuff for 5 minutes I got back to bed to not be able to sleep for an hour or 2.

I’m so tired right now.

By now I must have killed so many mosquitoes they probably have a war tribunal for me, somewhere.

me to colleague: sorry if there is noise, I’m 3D printing a snake
c: ah, because of Halloween?
m: no, it’s a bit chilly in my office
c: 🤔
m: 🤷‍♂️

Today I learned that gravity propagates with the speed of light. That was quite an interesting read

It’s Friday so I took an hour off and quit early. Now I feel bad for not taking 2 off!

Just got an out-of-office from someone stating they don’t work on Friday afternoon. I need this too! But starting from Wednesday afternoon. That would be so awesome.

I went with: I can’t find myself in that arrangement so I think we should come up with another option. Let’s take a break talking about this for a couple of days and think about what we both want out of this.
Since we have a prenup and guaranteed 50/50 custody of the kids, that seemed to be the best reply for everyone…

So my soon to be ex wife wants to leave me, but she doesn’t want to change anything because she’s afraid of the change and doesn’t earn enough money to have a house of her own. So basically she wants to keep living together(=me paying >75%) but she no longer loves me so she’s allowed to date/sleep with whoever she wants. How do you respond to that?

Today was, remarkably, a lot better than yesterday. The difference? 1/2 less meeting with > 4 people. My brain doesn’t mark those as unnecessary and ‘omg I don’t want to be here’.

I’m really longing for a beer right now, which is probably a sign I shouldn’t have one. I might do another ‘1 year without alcohol’ in 2022. I did the same in 2020 and while it was hard in the beginning, it was probably one of the better decisions to build character.

In other news: I seem to have survived another Monday. I don’t know how I did it to be honest, but I had some regular coffee so I guess that must have helped.

I’ve been told Facebook, Instagram and WhatsApp are down, yet my day is exactly the same as I haven’t used any of these in years.

The only thing different is that I’ve made a toot about them and some people seem to be very upset the company that’s harvesting their data and earning millions off of it is having technical difficulties.

TIL: pringels are technically not potato chips, and are actually very bad for the environment due to their packaging. Damn.

Probably a strange opinion, and to be honest I was quite surprised as well, but: Star Trek: lower decks is quite entertaining to watch.

One of my kids told me he was having trouble relaxing and getting to sleep. Since I fully understand the feeling I explained them both how to do very basic breathing exercises and muscle relaxation. They went from awake and talking, to fully asleep in < 5minutes. I guess that’s a victory ✌️
