Finally got a replacement television for the family. We’ve been using a pretty old Sony Bravia for nearly 9 years now. That’s like 46 in television years. It always felt like there was something more important to buy than a television. If the old was working, what was the point right? Well the old one sto... www.kaa.bz

🍦 Yesterday was the first ice cream of the season from Zuzu’s. They’ve changed the menu for the year (which is great) but the surprise for me was Tiger Tail, an orange and licorices flavour. Highly recommended if you can try it.

Finished reading: Kali by Daniel Freedman 📚. It’s been ages since I read a comic book like this. One of those rare breeds, a cinematic action comic books. Like a paper movie. The moment I saw the cover I knew I was in for a real treat. Everything inside did not disappoint.

I swear flu’s didn’t use to hit me as hard as they do now. It takes my body over five days to fully kick them and I feel exhausted at the end. Linked to getting older or because I’m in this part of the world my body is just not used to it all?

🤒 Day five of this stupid flu. So pedestrian. Blocked nose, but at least no headache and therefore need for medication, so that’s something.

📚 Just finished the second volume of A Distant Neighbourhood. I always knew that the work of Jiro Taniguchi would resonate (based on his artwork alone), but hadn’t realised how much better his work is for me now that I am in my 40s with a family of my own. The beats hit harder. All the things that attract ... www.kaa.bz

@ChrisJWilson Exactly! Also I have really loved it when he’s done stuff that outsmart the other guy, thats why I think Pep was so annoyed at the end of the FA cup, he’d been outsmarted by a guy that was seemingly on the ropes or about to loose his job.

⚽️ Ten Hag stays! This actually was totally the right choice. All those in the British media that tried to get him fired should be on his list now as he continues his fuck-you-tour. Love it.

@markstoneman so i got over that by creating a bunch of shortcuts rather than the tray.

@pratik The AI stuff leaves me cold with relatively sub-par results. Maybe Apple has found a good way of sorting this out....but I'm not holding my breathe. I'm more excited about some of the new features they have coming across all three devices I own.

France vs. Canada. As my latest adopted nation, I’m pretty happy with the result on this one.

@pratik Agreed. The most important thing is the flow and the habit of sharing your thoughts. It makes a big difference.

The previous experiment failed. I tried having a separate status site for short posts but the flow was broken and the benefit wasn’t great, so I’m back to consolidating everything in one place again, under one banner.

Finished reading: Saga Volume 11 by Brian K. Vaughan 📚. Finally fully up to speed with this series. Fantastic series. Exceptional character development. Real imaginative designs for the characters. Exactly the kind of book I want to read in my 40s.

No idea why but decided to start watching House. I love Hugh Laurie in this show and while it’s not tight (22 episodes per season seems excessive) and a little formulaic I am enjoying the first couple of seasons so far.

🪁 Took the kids kite flying yesterday and it was something that really brought me joy to watch (not at the start because Ryan was beside himself having lost his kite the day before), but eventually once they settled into it , 2 hours of running around flew by.

Finished reading: Reborn by Mark Millar 📚. This wasn’t that good. A combination of Millar and Capullo should have been dynamite…. I was not surprised. I certainly wasn’t invested in the characters enough.
