Jaysus, how did I miss that we've passed the 4 million dead mark for COVID-19? 😔
Notes and scribbles
I try to jot down my thoughts as I go. I publish them here and then syndicate them to other platforms, like Twitter.
I crafted all of these items just for you. Yes you.
It's exactly 6 years today that I moved to Berlin with my partner. Time flies when you're a) having fun b) in a pandemic.
Hands up all the women who talk about the tech industry in therapy.
DevOps is irritatingly interesting, and very, very hard to combine with a passion for accessibility and slow-tech.

Are you the developer who never talks, or are you the developer that never stops talking oh god please stop talking
Baby woodpeckers are extremely noisy. I know this because there’s a nest of them 5 metres from where my desk is.
I have to admit that I probably would watch Eurovision.
But I am partnered to someone who despises it with a passion and if it’s a choice between me and the wifey then the spangly eurotrash don’t have a chance.
Just had to do a firmware update on a lightbulb.
[reporter] Why ARE trans people always so miserable?
[the UK trans community, waiting to hear the outcome of a court case on whether transphobic beliefs are protected at work] sigh
Hmm, funny that, because I remember it being when a load of Silicon Valley cunts invented the concept in order to economise on hiring, but what they really did was economise on frontend quality by hiring backend devs and forcing them to do frontend and that's what led to the state of the web today but why don't you go ahead and invent whatever fucking history makes you feel comfortable, fuckmouth.
Which bitch just got awarded Permanent Residence in Germany? (clue: it’s me)
People in the UK are posting pictures of themselves at the pub. Might go scream for a while.
Having tried to use the Instagram API this weekend I can only conclude that Facebook hates everyone, including its own developers.
There is definitely an abusive relationship going on there.
I'm on a committee for deciding on how our 10000+ company moves forward with internal messaging apps.
I have suggested that we use IRC.
I can say with absolute certainty that if I didn’t need a twitter account for my career, I’d delete it forever. It’s mind numbingly addictive and awful.
The problem I have with it is that I can’t use it only a bit, or for a short time. It’s all or nothing. And I’m starting to get the addicts clarity that maybe I need to go cold turkey.
Ive had to deactivate my Twitter account for a bit. It’s hurting my mental health and, frankly, it’s addictive.
"There's nothing sexier than an older woman's bedside medicine collection", she thought, as she refilled her pill box.
Exciting times as my partner and I play the ancient game of “try to sneak past the guinea pig cage without them noticing”. Partner won after managing to crawl all the way across the living room floor without them squealing at her.
Okay, so I started smoking again a few months ago. Fucking awful habit, and this time it made me actually feel ill. But I couldn’t stop. Each lungful felt amazing, but afterwards I felt sick as a dog. Like my body was giving me side eye.
So the other night I smocked a lot during a Friday night pre-curfew bender. The resulting hangover was absolutely awful. Proper 24 hour stuff. But it all felt like the aftermath of the fags.
I am getting anti-menopause products pushed at me and I’d like to know what online surveillance capitalism knows that I don’t
