Members 97. Mini, but not an iPhone

Egged on by the 1857 Slack, I ordered a new M1 Mac-mini last night. If you don’t follow Apple, the M1 is the new in-house chip. Effectively bringing all the technological innovation of the iPhone/iPad to the Mac.

Members 96. Here we go again…

I take no pleasure in being proved right, but the US Election is going to be the most expensive no score-draw in history.

Members 95. Bloody Hashtags

Less than a week later, I was told that my car needed a new engine. You read that right. Not a new tyre or a new fan belt. A new engine. The mind boggles.

Members 94. Snorting Charlie

Faced with a bowl full of water, he placed both feet into it and attempted to kick water into his mouth. This may be the first time I have ever seen Mrs L speechless, mouth agape at the dripping chaos in his wake.

Members 93. Unmanageable

It strikes me, that I have become unmanageable. I’m used to either doing everything myself, or having people do things for me, pretty much, on command. I’ve forgotten chains of command, authorisation forms and the like.

Members 92. October Crisis?

That didn’t take long. I mused on what the October crisis might be, and before the ink was dry, the White House tested positive for Covid, the President went to hospital, played with a sharpie, took a drive and then returned home. It seems the agenda is set.

Members 90

Covid is again casting a shadow on us all. Experts and politicians maintain the illusion that we wield some power over the virus. It makes them feel useful, I suppose.

Members 89. We’re all imposters.

This is how my imposter syndrome works. Even though I’m aware of it. Even though I prime myself to expect it. It starts at writing, then bleeds into every aspect of life.
