Early bird does not get the scooter
Two beers and then walk the aisles on the Acela train. Try it
…and here’s that travel cable strategy in all its glory
Oh ya know, just spent the morning trying to come up with a new travel charging cable strategy, as you do.
Of course, Baby Vale asked that why— as residents of Washington DC— we have no federal representation despite paying federal taxes and our laws being subject to congressional review. But luckily she decided to eat the sticker instead of waiting for my answer
Next time you all see my mom ask her who won in street bible trivia
People next to us at dinner: “how can New York City continue to fund small theaters in a time when city revenues are decreasing?”
Julie and I: “WHICH HAUNTED FOREST CAN WE GET THE BEST GROUPON FOR?”
The naming of of the iPhone XS and XS Max is pretty terrible, but I really think Apple considers these (and last year’s iPhone X) as fundamentally different iPhones than the ones in the numbered series: analogous of the move from Classic Mac OS to OS X (macOS).
I was impressed with how easy it was to advocate for the XR, though: same-type screen as your iPhone 7 and same cameras as iPhone XS, but one fewer. In exchange you get colors, better battery life, and $250 off.
It’s funny how the narrative of the 5C being not a great phone spread. Enough so that I was talking the iPhones X with a casual user yesterday and she thought that the XR fit the same mold as the 5C: “slow and old”
How can we be more like John McCain? Figure out what drives your values and then do things to implement that.
That may sound simple, but we live in a noisy world. You’re going to have to learn how to push back on things that seem right, but aren’t.
Not sure I can overstate John McCain’s importance to how I think about things politically. I don’t necessarily share all his views, but his willingness to put his own code over pre-defined party views helped a young me realize that internal values are the rule, not the exception

This is what Southwest first class looks like

This is what happens when you’re in St. Louis and you get to the airport two hours early
At 18 hours and 45 minutes long, it’s the longest flight in the world and it’s not even really that close.
Y’all. Julie just let me book us on that Newark to Singapore nonstop flight
If this flight coming to DCA is truly en route, Baby Vale would like to know why our departure time keeps getting pushed back
Happy that my shirt and pants can clean up for the guy who shaved his beard on the metro
Commercials shouldn’t be allowed to have crying babies while baby Vale is napping
Twitter poll: we’re getting a new car in a few days, should the first album we listen to be:
 Lorde’s Melodrama  just not get the new car
