My writing pattern used to be more consistent

The folks over at Google have indicated that while no more tablets are forthcoming at some point a new Pixelbook will arrive. That new Pixelbook will probably be my next mobile computing device. That is exciting. For a long time (really since the first Pixelbook came out), I have wanted to get a Pixelbook. I’m not entirely sure what benefit it will have to my writing productivity. Outside of that realization and in full acceptance of it, I still want to buy a Pixelbook. Maybe that is just one of those things that will eventually happen.

Earlier tonight I bought a copy of Ready Player One by Earnst Cline on audiobook from Google Play Books. I had no idea when the purchase was made that it was narrated by Wil Wheaton. During the first twenty minutes it has not been super distracting, but something about it is a bit distracting. It appears that Wil has narrated a lot of books. That is interesting to say the least. I’m a little bit surprised that tonight is the first time I have run into a book narrated by Wil. After another 20 minutes I have managed to start ignoring who is narrating the book and just consume the content. Listening to music probably is a better match for writing. Listening to an audiobook is typically not the best way to actively engage in writing some sweet sweet prose.

Working Overtime on Taco Tuesday

A few hard decisions have to be made over the next few months. For better or worse the path toward working overtime leads to larger paychecks and eventually being tired. To directly combat the tiredness would be unwise and ultimately misguided. An alternative strategy was developed that involved both tacos and beer, but alas I digress…

After engaging in some rather serious Excel Kung Fu at work it seemed like a good idea to indulge in taco Tuesday at Del Taco on the way home. With a massive amount of hot sauce in the take out bag a cool refreshing beverage was in order to complete the night. I do have to say, the good people over at New Belgium Brewing do manage to make a tasty beer. Fat Tire amber ale remains a fan favorite in Colorado.

Eating an entire bag of inexpensive tacos would seem like the right way to conclude a rather stressful day, but something else was required. What could be better than a bag of tacos? The answer involves having a bag of tacos and allowing the Netflix Corporation to stream Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan directly to my secondary monitor.

Yes, today involved a demonstration of workplace Kung Fu, tacos, and Star Trek…
