1 title: rain rain
3 2023-05-20 12:26
5 everyone's asleep and the pitter-patter of rain can be heard on the window. i
6 keep forgetting to write here, but at least i'm still writing. i'm a little
7 exhausted and sleepy, but it's been a long time since i've had some alone time
8 to just write, so that's what i'm doing.
10 i'm writing this in vim, like usual, but i recently turned off syntax
11 highlighting for things, and it's kind of nice and relaxing. some of the bright
12 colors can be jarring, but that could also be fixed by disabling bold
13 highlighting in vim--i dunno lol. anyway, it's a calm experience, and it matches
14 how things look when i'm writing a plain ol' `.txt` file.
16 i heard the kid sneeze a couple of times just now, so i'm not sure how much
17 longer i should try writing this out, in case he wakes up, and i'm stuck here,
18 at this point, in this blog post, not knowing what my train of thought was if i
19 were to come back and try to continue. i think this is one of the hardest parts
20 about parenting. you don't really ever get a long enough time to do your own
21 things, or stay in a long enough train of though to get any of the substantial
22 stuff that you could get out before life changed. this isn't bad, it's just
23 different, and i need to get used to it. i guess the benefit of me not having
24 time to write longer blog posts is that folks who like to read my blog don't
25 need to spend a lot of time reading to keep up with what's going on in my life,
26 if there are people reading, which i don't really care if there are... unless
27 they are friends! i care about you!! hahaha.
29 i think i might make tea and see if i can continue working on my fennel rewrite
30 of what i have currently in scheme--a static, filesystem-based website generator
31 with a shitty homegrown markup-to-html converter lol. hmmmm, speaking of, i
32 should add a parser rule to my markup convert that converts `--` to `—` (em
33 dashes).

37 oh! i got a newsletter in the email that i missed reading for a while by
38 [|]. if you'r reading this, zach, i love
39 reading these, as bad as i am with keeping in touch with you <3. it's wonderful
40 to know how you've been doing, and i miss the computer clubs at
41 [|]!! kids take up a lot of time!! but they
42 give great joy and are absolutely wonderful, so that's okay too.

46 it was really nice to write all this out. i'm considering moving my blog to
47 [|], and just leaving this server for stuff i run in
48 the backend for myself and friends, but i haven't fully commited yet, so if you
49 see that my blog has disappeared from here one day, then i may have moved it to
50 knows what my brain will decide in the future.
