One more flight to get home. In theory if I had a rental car here from ORD I could be home sooner than this flight will get me home. But that would mean driving four hours… out of Chicago… during rush hour… Instead I will sit here and eat dinner on the company dime.

Spent an hour with Apple tech support trying to figure out why my MacBook just refuses to show me the Hilton Honors captive portal screen so I can login. Got escalated to second tier support. Next step: try reinstalling the OS. Sure, I’m game. Go to recovery mode. Turns out reinstalling the OS… requires yo... chrishubbs.com

Haven’t run much in the last several years after injuring my knee running a half marathon. Having lost a bunch of weight this spring, it’s time to try it out again. Boy am I out of cardio shape. Time to be back at it.

Oh man, this bit in Naomi Alderman’s latest novel, the thoughts of a woman who left a religious cult. I know these feelings. #exvangelical

And Martha knew she was truly alone. Now and forever. Her friends in the valley would always understand why she left but not why she'd stayed. The Enochites would understand why she'd stayed but never why she left.

Current status: monitoring the video game room at the post-prom party. Watching the level of play, pretty sure I could beat most of these kids at Mario Kart. 😂

Headed into a busy weekend… high school tennis tonight for K15, prom tomorrow night for A18. I volunteered to be a post-prom party door monitor from 11:15pm to 2:00am… I suspect I will not be making it to church on Sunday.

@davidtoddmccarty Older man makes a creepy comment to the 22yo woman who is the new face of the local team... so the boss takes him off the beat. (Note it's not the team that banned him - it's the paper who reassigned him.)

This Cubs/Brewers game this afternoon has all the hallmarks of a postseason clash. Two terrific starting pitching performances, good defense, aggressive baserunning. Both teams have had scoring chances but neither have cashed in with a clutch hit. Still 0-0 in the 6th!

Just took a close look at my calendar and realized that between work travel, personal travel, and holidays, I will only be in the office for 25 of the next 40 weekdays… only two weeks in May/June that I’ll be in the office all week. Yikes.

Got travel booked last night for a family trip in June… National History Day nationals for K15 in DC, followed by a weekend in NYC. First real family vacation in probably 5 years!

With all the crap going on in the world it seems trivial to still be cheered by sports, but dang it, the Cubs won 1-0 last night, and the Stars have come back from a 0-2 deficit to Vegas to win 3 in a row. That cheers me up this morning, at least for a bit.

@amerpie I'm only a day into it so far (after having participated in the Kickstarter way back when, but not getting seriously into it at that point), but I'm loving it. It seems to hit the sweet spot for me.
