Friends, if you weren’t already smitten with Ted Lasso, and the Christmas episode from season 2 didn’t push you over the edge, then I’m afraid I need to pray for your soul.

Done with licensing! Whew!

Had to run up to Denton to pick up an item. Made my pilgrimage to the nearest Buc-ee’s, as required by Texas state law.

I am sad for the Astros, my first baseball love, but happy we got to have another World Series in Texas.

May the Rangers figure out how to host those type of games again.

I am happy (and sad) for my sister-in-law, because her husband would have LOVED the Braves’ WS win.

I am happy for Ron Washington, that he got to win the championship that eluded him in Texas.

I am happy for the city of Atlanta, which got shafted by @MLB earlier this season.

Just when the fish thought they were safe, the Orcan Air Force showed up. twitter.com/RebeccaH2…

Saw a chalk sign at a bar once that had the Ben Franklin quote, “Beer is proof that God loves us” amended with “And Scotch proves He wasn’t kidding.” twitter.com/tonywoodl…

It wouldn’t matter what the rest of his policy proposals were. If Pat were to demand members of the White House press pool have to spin a wheel and correctly guess a letter to ask him a question, he would have my vote. twitter.com/patsajak/…

I’m starting to think charts like this are not scientifically peer-reviewed, for it has obviously conflated December with July. twitter.com/bellavery…

One thing that I won’t be getting used to is macOS Monterey’s transparent menu bar. Yep, that’s got to go.

Downloaded and bought Boring Old Menu Bar. Much better. www.publicspace.net/BoringOld…

After a bit of a false start, got macOS Monterey installed on my 2015 MacBook Pro. This interface will take some getting used to.

My favorite USAF aircraft. What a great shot. twitter.com/bigdaddyo…

Happy Jack Reacher Day, everyone! πŸ“š

I knew both of my great grandmothers on my dad’s side. One of them spent the last few years of her life in my dad’s parents home, which we visited weekly. twitter.com/Brink_Thi…

My parents were in town this weekend. Yesterday they got to watch their youngest grandchild play in goal, then score goals in a lacrosse tournament. Today, they got to watch their oldest grandchild’s hockey team knock off the number 2 team in the division.

The one-two punch of “Calling on You” and “Free” is among the best in all of metal. Favorite track is “More Than a Man.” twitter.com/Wildmanan…

Short take from last night’s Dune viewing:

I am very pleased. It’s not perfect, but nothing will be unless it gets a big-budget, multi-season series. For the limits of feature film, it’s great. And because it’s a Villeneuve film, utterly beautiful.
