Did a nice family hike along the San Gabriel Riverbed this morning. What a great way to spend Labor Day.

I found out what I would use a time machine for. Returning to the moment last Saturday where I decided not to wear sunscreen at the pool party and shaking sense into myself.

The Incredibles 2 is delightful. Great family fun. My kids loved it, laughing and cheering the whole time, me too.

Saw Teen Titans Go! To The Movies with the boy yesterday. This was my first Teen Titans experience. I must say, it was great! Very funny and the animation is great.

9 year old and friends decided to open glitter in her room. After a week of futile cleaning attempts I think it’s time to just burn this place down and start over.

Saw Ant-Man and the Wasp yesterday. I loved it. It’s exactly what I want in a super hero movie. Funny, fun, with lovable characters. Pretty much the opposite of Infinity War. I vote for all Marvel movies being Ant-Man movies.

I met Asad and heard his story in person last October in France. I looked at him and saw myself, except I knew I would be seeing my own children in a matter of days. I hope the same thing happens for him someday soon.

Went out for an evening solo ride tonight. It was fun, although, despite sticking to country roads without traffic, it’s a bit nerve-racking to ride alone after dark. It’s ingrained deep to look for predators behind every bush.

Wearing contacts for the first time after 20 years of glasses. How do all of you non-glasses wearers handle living in the world without something on your face? Everything is wrong right now.

The news media schadenfreude on today’s Facebook hearings is palpable and, to me, off-putting. Clean up the spy/adware scripts bloating your news websites and then talk to me about privacy.

The Facebook/Cambridge Analytics revelations are frustrating, but I’m having a hard time mustering anger. This has been their business model for years, and there are remedies to their data collection. Not so with the NSA.

(1/2) I’m excited about the HomePods shipping soon. I’m pretty happy integrating my smart home stuff with a centralized system like HomeKit. The biggest issue is cost. I can have the Google Assistant in 7 rooms for the cost of 1 HomePod.
