Rolling Stone did a damn good job too. The author has been waiting on that for a good long time.

Plenty of REIs around to try on a variety of both which is great! Though not sure I'll buy there now...

I've got an Australian colleague who introduced me to Smoko by The Chats. It's beautiful.

What a beautiful picture for today's pubski!

Finally finished unpacking! A simple 2.5 months after moving in... But ya know better late than never. It feels much bigger now it's a little crazy. The boxes really take up space.

Job is hectic right now with APEC so close but it's really interesting getting the inside scoop and seeing the behind the scenes stuff. I'll also be getting more responsibility in a few weeks, going to take over as project lead on one of our really large ongoing projects so that's pretty great.

Looking at getting a backpacking backpack. Current is like 60 or 65 L and it's just way too big for a weekend. Thinking 40-45. Been looking at Osprey and Gregory. Osprey has that sweet warranty but the Gregory I looked at was softer, but also how long with that softness last?

Also remember to wear your damn masks all of my immediate family has got Covid within the past 6 weeks or so.

That's awesome! Great to hear the success :)

Regarding the Beatles, how did you feel about Now and Then? It felt to me too muddy and repetitive. Very much a mishmash of each Beatle's post Beatles solo career. But not in a good way.

This past weekend we went to a Make Your Own Chai workshop at a tea festival. Mine was a mix of black tea and rooibos with spices including black pepper, cardamom, cinnamon, orange, and nutmeg. It's actually quite delicious. I named it Chai Chai Slide. which while a good name, isn't as good as the person next to me who named theirs "Don't knock it 'till you Chai it"

That Felipe Pikullik is really delightful. Didn't think I'd like the all black and I don't know how I feel about the moon, but the splash of gold gears on there is really great.

I will be! It's nothing that can't be fixed with diet and exercise which was already my plan (in action!) but good to know where I am at and how vital it is for me to be on top of those. Plus if I'm having surgery in a few months (May's light surgery experiment was unsuccessful) it's good to know those for the anesthesiologist!

Turns out going from an active to sedentary lifestyle for 2 years plus a lot of grad school stress isn't great for your health but yay now having health insurance so I could do tests and actually spot things nice and early
