Modern parenting: texting the oldest "You've burned through three-quarters of our data this month and there's still two weeks to go, why aren't you on the wifi"

I have yet to do an escape room, but I read this article with tips, and it suggests having someone act as "project manager" to try to keep the big picture while people work on individual tasks. If your group isn't keen on following directions though, that may be problematic.

Today my extended family did an "escape room," split into two teams. We both failed, and I debriefed with my sister and we agreed-- nobody in my entire family knows how to follow directions. I guess good to confirm.

I really think playing with lego sets as a kid set me up for life. You have to make sure you do exactly what it shows or it won't look like it does on the box.

Just arrived back in Brooklyn. My favorite roommate moved out and next week I'm leaving my job. The good news is, my GF is done with school and got a job offer so she can stay in New York. And I'm starting the full-time computer programming training thing in a few weeks.

Just spent the whole Autumn rereading almost the entire thing (French Fry to Golden Tabloid) and damn if it doesn't feel appropriate to wrap it up by coming to a screeching halt on Christmas Eve with a comic posted on Christmas Day.

Today I went through my room at my parents' house because they're selling the house. A lotta shit to throw out. A lot of books to donate. Rounding the night out by going through my dad's old matchbox cars. There is one really beat up one with thumbtacks taped to the bottom-- I remember that he told me once this was for racing on some kind of track?

It is really mindblowing to me to look at this car and think "my dad at age 6 or 7 thought this was the coolest and fastest car."

Anyway I'm going to ask him to confirm the racing thing.

Also, astonishing, but as late as 2008 I was cutting articles out of the newspaper and saving them in a box. I found an article I saved from 2008 about how cool Brooklyn is. The rest of the box was anything about a rock band, predictably lots of stuff about George W Bush, John Kerry, and "letters to the editor" that I thought were funny.

My new thing with the GF is burrito nights. Beans, roasted veggies (onions peppers and zucchini usually), yellow rice and salsa. Very good easy meal.

I miss that korean pork though. Damn, that was one of the most satisfying things I've ever made.

The temperature is definitely off, but last time I made this cake in this oven I just set the temperature 15 degrees higher than the recipe said and it worked. Hmm. I will get an oven thermometer-- I only have an instant read one.
