This jet lag hasn't exactly made me tired, but bits of my brain aren't working, so I tried to say "cold" instead of "dark" and "linux" instead of "hummus"

The personal carbon footprint was invented by an oil company to shift blame onto consumers so it really is bullshit that we as individuals try to save the planet by using less straws


Going to try to run Teams inside Edge inside Linux

Had my credit card entered to see the Matrix film but then I read the reviews; going to Spiderman instead. Guess I dodged a bullet there

They have a bottle deposit in NY but I never bother to bring them to the thing that gives me the deposit back: they get recycled with my other household stuff
