4/29/21: Vaccinated

Posted on

2:30 p.m Short post ’cause there’s just so much work stuff to do. Bill and I got our second Pfizer shots on Tuesday and then met up with Suzanne at Moody’s. Yesterday, I felt pretty crappy. I didn’t feel as bad as I’d feared I would, based on people’s warnings. Bill is feeling it today […]

4/18/21: Streaks are hard

Posted on

8:29 p.m. So much for updating this several times a day. Every week is a new week though! The work week ended well and then Bill set up the projector. We watched the first half of the movie Heat. I’m pretty sure I’d seen that in the theater and I’m amazed that I had the […]

4/16/21: Three points determine a plane

Posted on

8:45 a.m. Good night last night. We ordered an absurd amount of food from Himalayan Sherpa and watched the Vanity Fair Live event that Martina got me for my birthday. Lots of fun. Also, my new glasses finally arrived – they are taking some getting used to. I can see the bottom half of my […]

4/15/21: Two points determine a line

Posted on

10:45 a.m. Last night was uneventful; no complaints here. Bill woke up at around …seven? We decided to postpone dinner until tonight, but we did eat some of the cake that Gere sent. It was very, very good. I need to send him a thank you card. I also need to send one to Bill’s […]

12:25 p.m. Helloooooo! Just another day more or less. Bill had insomnia, so he’s still asleep. Bummer. He did leave me a little present though. This was in addition to the tv projector he got me/us earlier this month. (P.S., we agreed we don’t do presents!!!) Bill gave me a gift card for a massage. […]

Drawings

Inktober 2020

Posted on

This month, I participated in the Inktober Challenge. It’s a popular online challenge to make an ink drawing every day of October based on a series of daily prompts. There are different sets of prompts and different places people post art, but I stuck with the main list and shared my work on my Instagram. […]

Me listening to music

Me listening to music

A pretty good selection this week, all told. I’ll add a bunch to the mauxbs.com Spotify playlist. Apologies in advance for 99.9% of these reviews being the same rant about bands trying to sound retro. I haven’t given the Spotify algorithm a lot to work with beyond favoriting a lot of older artists when I […]

Stats, Data, and Rock & Roll

Posted on

I think Facebook thinks I’m a bot. William Steffey and I are putting some serious focus on promoting his music this year. Running ads on Instagram is the first part of that. A Facebook business account comes with a lot of data, so surely I can use my statistical background to get us some sort […]
