I'm lucky to work with some wonderful people at Panic in downtown Portland (across from Powell's Books). Right now, we're looking for a Web Services Engineer to join us! I made this nice little video and everything. Check it out, if you're into web services, or maybe pass it on to someone you like? https://panic.com/blog/help-wanted-web-services-engineer/
Look, I tear up easily.
BUT I teared up a little hearing the wind blowing on Mars, because humans are still capable of incredible things: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yT50Q_Zbf3s
Ahhhh the reports from Cassini’s final mission (before intentionally vaporizing) are being released. Amazing! Charged ring material falls into Saturn’s atmosphere and other brand-new F A C T S https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=7251
We’re planning a dumpling Thanksgiving this year, and my realm is desserts. @neven found this Mochi pumpkin recipe that is THE GREATEST: https://thewoksoflife.com/2015/11/pumpkin-mochi-pumpkin-filling/

Last year, we moved into a house that allowed us, for the first time, to grow veggies in the garden. Tonight I picked our first haul of tomatoes and… They’re beautiful 😭 There’s still a truckload of them ripening on the plants, so it’s time to roll up the sleeves and start planning meals…
NASA’s flying some mice to space to learn how the absence of gravity affects their microbiota compared with control mice on Earth, and I just got so excited about it I said “hell yeah!” out loud to no one https://nasa.tumblr.com/post/177339668144/your-gut-in-space/amp
Just saw BlackkKlansman. I don’t know how Spike Lee can pull off something that’s quirky, ominous, uplifting, and powerful—with moments of real comedy—all at once. And then when you’re reeling, he guts you completely. I want to read the book by Ron Stallworth that it’s based on. And I hope a lot of people see this film.
Vacation Day 1:
“It’s too hot out here; I’ll go inside,” he said.
20 minutes later, I peek in and he’s making gnocchi dough.
