This is our neighbour’s cat. The neighbour recently got a new puppy, so now he sits staring wistfully at the fence between our garden and theirs – even when he’s being called in for food. Occasionally he’ll glance at us, as if expecting us to do something about it all.
The current "get back to work” messaging from the U.K. government is really irritating me. It shouldn't, as it's not important in the grand scheme of things… but a great many of us never stopped working. The last few months have been hectic, stressful, and some of the busiest in my career. Yet the way ministers are talking, you'd think I'd been on holiday for months and the economy is tanking as a direct result.
I bought PC speakers for the first time in oooooh… 20+ years, because my new monitor didn’t have any built-in. They’re not even "good" ones, but it feels weird and joyous to hear sound coming from my computer that has actual depth and tone 🔊
I mean, I didn’t eat out more than once or twice a year
before the pandemic, so I doubt I’m going to have much use for a £10 voucher…
I've been after a new monitor since the start of lockdown, as my home monitor was a nine year old 1080p model which had a fine mist of silver paint on the lower half of the screen, thanks to some airbrushing mishaps. It was definitely showing its age, but had been “fine” in a time when I was only using it one day a week.
I finally managed to
get one with a price-to-features ratio I was happy with, and was in stock. In the end I decided to go with higher resolution (4K) over physical screen size (my original plan was 1440p @ 27”), and I'm very happy I did; everything looks so sharp and vibrant! Not having to completely rearrange my desk setup was also a bonus… the new monitor fit right onto the existing arm, with only a slight height adjustment needed to account for smaller bezels.
Mrs. K: “does having two Switches make us the Millennial equivalent of the ‘two car household’?”
It feels like I'm the last person to do so, but I finally watched Hamilton, now it's on Disney+. It was really good! I'm not normally one for musicals, but it hooked me and flew by, despite being nearly 3 hours long!
When the stroopwafel fits juuust right 👍
I watched every episode of The Simpsons on Disney+, so you don’t have to. (Don’t) AMA!
