Something I heard recently:  
Before you support your partner in a fight with his ex, consider that you are the leading candidate to be his next ex. In fact, you are probably the only candidate.

[Pronouns can be changed as required, of course.]

Don't take life too seriously:  You won't get out of it alive, anyway. 

I never met Bill Eves, but I'll bet he had a lot of friends.

Thanks to Looney Tunes reruns, children of the 21st century know what an anvil looks like. They have no idea that it's for anything other than squashing coyotes, but you pick your battles.

"The sushi dish, he wrote in the introduction to the squirrel recipe, was his way of getting even with the little rodents for all the damage they inflicted at his sugar shack."

Never, EVER, get between a Quebecker and his sugar shack!!

Thank you for your heartfelt vlog.  I've been there myself, and I can describe it only as standing in front of a firehose of emotional gumbo simmered according to a custom recipe for each person, each day. Those who have never tasted gumbo don't quite get it. Those who have, know their own bowls best.  

Many cooks contribute to each gumbo.  Some bits of it are unpleasant, but the mix is usually comforting.  Still, no matter how much good is in the blend, it's disconcerting to be hit suddenly with a large volume of hot stuff at high pressure. [It always comes back to old-school geekery with me.]

You and Diana are in my thoughts.  <3

Word and web geekery.
Introduction
Old-school geek of the "hammers and equations" variety.  I like knitting, reading science fiction, eating good poutine and spouting the occasional clever pun. 

I write.  I translate between dialects of geek.

I don't code. [That doesn't mean I don't do HTML or CSS; I do.] I'm a math geek so the logic doesn't faze me a bit.  I simply don't like to code.  Plenty of other people code, and they do it well. However, I am not at all offended by talk of coding at the table, as long as you are not offended by me knitting.  

If I knit in your presence, I'm still listening. I'm probably talking, too--possibly a lot.  I'm just keeping my hands busy so the arthritis doesn't take over.  I leave the more difficult projects at home.  My "social" knitting requires very little brain engagement; it's pretty much muscle memory.

Don't get too excited about the links on the right--EXCEPT TECHNICAL MAGIC :) --because I'm still setting up house at those URLs.  I've been using Teh Intarwebz since they were BITNET, but I'm used to using a pseudonym or writing for someone else.
