Well, we’re winding down the long, stressful march towards the Smaller Animal’s surgery. Next week is our final trip to Disneyland on this year’s season passes. This past week I gave a talk at LA Perl Mongers (a.k.a. LA.pm), despite coming off the tail of a 24-hour bug that kept me home from work that day. Hopefully I didn’t get any of the fellow Mongers sick.
The Smaller Animal and I are trying to work through the new Defenders series before the surgery, and the whole family is rewatching Stranger Things in preparation for season 2. And of course The Mother and I will be glued to the tube tonight for the Walking Dead season premiere tonight.
And that’s pretty much it. Working on a few financial things this weekend to get that stuff out of the way, and happy that there’s not something big going on. Next weekend we’ll get my birthday celebration out of the way a bit early, and the weekend after that, it’s surgery showtime.
Watched Patton Oswalt’s latest Netflix special last night. He says his late wife hated when people said “everything happens for a reason.” There’s no reasons (she would say), there’s no order; we just have to be as good to each other as we can every day because you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. Or, as Patton put it:
Everything is chaos; be kind.
I kinda like that.
