Happy towel day you hoopy froods #TowelDay
Raquel and I got another round of surprise tickets to the Thunderbirds from a still mysterious benefactor and tonight I found a fun souvenir in my seat.
As has become tradition over the years I have pulled together my NHL bracket. Very strange to be doing it and not being overly optimistic about the Penguins winning.
Saturday Morning dog pile.
Took some time to unwind tonight by baking a batch of cookies. I didn’t even end up eating any of them tonight!
I was craving some baked goods so I made a batch of soft pretzels for the first time in twenty years I’m pretty happy with how they turned out.
Today at work we hit general availability on one of the most challenging projects I’ve tackled, “how do you take the password out of 1Password”. Unlock with Okta is the result.
Our security team did a wonderful job detailing how we solved the problem and maintained end to end encryption.
Raquel and I took in the Thunderbirds game this afternoon after I won free tickets. Half way through the game Raquel said “I think I like sports now!”
One cool touch was that they had a drum circle before the US and Canadian anthems.
Apparently it has been 10 years since “this is fine” was published. This meme has deeply embedded itself in my professional life and even taken up a spot on my shelf.
The original artist posted a great reflection on the impact of this phenomenon on them.
And it feels like it’s only getting harder. The best I can ask for is for people to simply forget, but the dog persists. So I do what I can and try to keep in good humor and be thankful that I can still do what I do for a living.Reflection on a decade from the author
I went looking for a keyboard and mouse combo with multi device support and immediately gave into nostalgia for my university days.
Celebrating the last day of 2022 by taking in a family walk to the outdoor cafe the Bike and Bean to enjoy the very warm day
On Christmas Eve we had a little family outing to the rink and I got to take Gwen for a bit of a spin around in addition to playing some hockey with my cousin’s children.
After 3 days of birthday parties, Christmas, and family visits the pups are pretty happy to have a quiet morning.
I am not usually one for “end of year replay” social stuff but getting my Steam replay was definitely satisfying.

It would seem that the FIA is bound and determined to not let FIFA out do them in the “monstrous multinational sport” competition.
“No political statements” is a political statement.
It was not as drastic as last time but I had my first haircut in almost 18 months this week. Couldn’t risk Gwen not recognizing me so has to keep it simple.
Even without a rooting interest in either side this World Cup final has been thrilling. Really too bad it will be decided by penalties.
As far as Gwen is concerned this may as well be the Infinity Gauntlet with all of the Infinity Gems installed. The moment I fully assemble it she will stop whatever she is doing and come pull it apart and distribute the rings to all corners of the room to keep the house safe.
