So it's been about 560 days since my wife and I started working at home. That ends tomorrow. I'm a little grumpy about it. Sigh.

Nice morning fog after storms rolled through last night. πŸ‘

Waiting for what will undoubtedly be an absolutely unpredictable to start. Go Max! Go Seb!

And even more, they fit comfortably over my reading glasses. Technology! :-)

I bought these absolutely ridiculous (and hilarious) 'lazy readers' for my wife and I. Think milk carton periscope in glasses form! Lol. They seem to be built surprisingly well and they do actually work (I'm looking at the phone in my lap when I took that picture). Clearly I have a laziness problem lol!

One benefit of still working from home is a park visit when it's a nice 13C Friday morning. πŸ‘πŸ‘

I love Chinese food leftovers (mostly Sesame chicken and fried rice) but it's hilarious the way it functions like an instant sedative... Sooo sleepy.. lol

When you're a month into summer and wake up to 10C you have to make hay while the sun shines (Bertie and I aren't big fans of the summer heat). πŸ‘

I'm thoroughly enjoying this podcast interview with Colin McRae's co-driver Nicky Grist. I could listen to Nicky tell rally stories all. frickin. day. :-)

My Dad bought this foosball table back in 1980 when I was 12. Decided to challenge him once again yesterday. He's 84 and has Parkinson's but as you can see he's doing A-okay. πŸ‘ I will have to challenge him more often. It's been a couple years since I last played ... yeah, that's my excuse. :-)

Ordering upgraded internet for our new office we are moving locations next week (though everybody's still working from home here). Have spoken with 3 different (very nice) people so far. On the phone 45min with nothing actually ordered yet. Coffee and an internet browser make waiting on hold at least bearable.

This made me laugh so much my gut hurts. I both love and hate that this describes my relationship with hobbies and interests so accurately. LOL

Gotta make early morning park walks a more regular thing. Will throw it on the pile of good intentions. :-)

Not sure if there's any spreadsheet wonks out there.. I've got a table with values. Given an PGAref value of say 0.23, I want to interpolate between the values along the highlighted Class D row. I only have this discrete table of values, there are no functions associated with those values. I want to do this strictly in Libreoffice Calc or Excel. Is there a way to do this other than using a terrible set of nested IF statements?

Weeknight park visit at sunset. Cold, but pretty. πŸ‘

This winter I decided to buy a box of those blue nitrile gloves. Not to service my car or do anything glamorous, but to do dishes with! (I do a lot of dishes it seems lol) Did you know you can operate a phone (including the fingerprint sensor) through these with no issues? I was genuinely surprised. :-)

My lovely daughter got me this for my bday... It's not necessarily true but I love it. πŸ˜‰
