My family, without any prior warning, assigned my birthday this year a unicorn theme. All other things being equal, we made a good time of it. 🦄 🎈
I pushed a Docker container today.

Leaf blowers: Think again, jackass.
Oh, heck, now that’s a mood.
Democracy dies in etc. etc.
We cancel and un-cancel so many people on a — not daily, hourly — over shreds of information no more or less substantive than single lines of throwaway quotation in a blog from god-knows-where and I’m just so exhausted by all of it. I can’t keep up.
