I tried to sing "hush little baby" to my daughter, but forgot most of the words.

Hush little baby don't you cry,
Papas going to buy you a pumpkin pie
If it's made of Hubbard squash,
At least it has a nice egg wash.

If that egg wash doesn't shine,
We'll make some jam out of lemon rind.
If that lemon rind's too tart,
We'll get something sweet at the apple cart.

If the apple cart's not there,
Don't you fret, we'll just use some pear.
Bosc is nice & Bartlett too,
Please go to sleep; I love you.

“It's a long and rugged road
and we don't now where it's headed
But we know it's going to get us where we're going
And when we find what we're looking for
we'll drop these bags and search no more
'Cuz it's going to feel like heaven when we're home.”

—The Wailin’ Jennys, _Heaven When We’re Home_

Sat down in Dunkin' Donuts at a table next to two women mid-conversation.

Woman 1: "Well, you've got to do what makes you happy."

Woman 2: "No, I don't do that."

"There was a big high wall there that tried to stop me
A sign was painted said: Private Property
But on the back side it didn't say nothing
This land was made for you and me."

Woody Guthrie on walls.

If "who are my active customers?" is a difficult query for the database behind your e-commerce system to answer, you made some bad design decisions.

Some reporter on Channel 4 saying it should be "comforting" that the lockdown for an active shooter in Jersey City didn't stress the kids out too much because they're used to lockdowns by now.

Lord have mercy.

I think the last computer I had with wheels was an SGI Challenge 10000.
