Midnight Pub

Good morning, pub!

Morning, everyone! How are we doing today?

The day is good! Finished my turntable project and the addition of a subwoofer to my sound system over the weekend. Also got the belts replaced on my lawn mower.

Fixing a bicycle after having disassembled it for travel. Sun is shining so I don't mind how long it takes :) Good morning!

That sounds like an awesome day! I need to get a new bike. I used to ride a Schwinn Prelude everywhere, but then social pressure forced me to get a car and then later the bike crapped out on me and I couldn't figure out how to fix it.

That's a really pity! There's nothing nicer when the weather is good. That's kind of rare here too so I suppose that makes it extra special. Mines a Montague fold up bike. Like yourself, I had to get a car, but the bike came after so I chose a bike I could fold up and put in the boot.

Not morning, definitely some way into beer time for me. I stopped drinking with people and went home, hopefully the remaining hours of sleep will still be enough to do all the things I wanted to do tomorrow morning.

~another coffee for me, bartender! It's that mid-afternoon slump.

I'm doing all right. Been checking back into the pub recently; I took a little break to reevaluate how it fits into my life. Funny thing, how even when I wasn't here I still felt like a patron. So that answers that.

Otherwise, same old same old. I'm about 6 months into my new job, and I really feel like I'm starting to get the hang of it. I'm still slow, but I'm getting through my allocated Jira tickets each sprint ahead of schedule and picking up extras, so nobody seems to be complaining. But I do consider quitting my job each time I have to fix some ambiguous Cascading Spaghetti Sheet glitch, or when our webapp build pipeline generates misbehaving files that, by as far as I can tell, shouldn't exist in the first place.

Oh, and the social life is coming back, finally. Meeting up with friends and strangers! Will be starting my first ever D&D campaign in a few weeks. How about a celebratory drink?

Never got to play D&D but had fun with Hero Quest and Space Hulk. Enjoy and congrats on the job.

I definitely feel you about the social life. Now that I'm vaccinated and COVID cases are the lowest they've been since March 2020, we can basically socialize again, and that feels wonderful!

Hello. I'm doing AWS training for my day job. I already know a lot of this, but unless I take the class and pass the test I can't prove it. Credentialism is a hell of a drug.

Bartender, I could use a White Lady over here.
