    I don’t know what to say. I only met Lyra in person once or twice in passing, but knew her a little in the Twitters. She was one of the good ones, and there’s no sense at all in this. NI is diminished without her voice.

  • I don’t know what the birds round here are eating this year, but getting the car clean nearly took a chisel 😶

  • 🎬 It’s a shame The Silence is such a dull film. I quite enjoyed the novel it’s based on.

  • I successfully spent a Scottish banknote in an English shop. I am invincible! I can do anything!

  • Words to live by. twitter.com/tdierks/s…

  • SF starting to get political. Mustn’t have read much SF before…

  • Nice to see BBC News getting their troll on a wee bit. www.bbc.co.uk/news/news…

  • MS OneNote is pretty good, but I really hurt for the lack of proper Markdown support 😞

  • Days since I accidentally typed “:w” in a Slack window: 0.

  • So, I take it you all have watched the new Stranger Things trailer?

  • 📚 These should be worth watching out for. The Themis Files were an excellent trilogy, and the recent novella The Test was also worth reading.

  • I have just learned that orange Smarties are orange-flavoured. At 38, how did I not know this?

  • Every time we talk about moving (or do move) from one project management product to another, it brings us one step closer to writing our own.

    And I’m pretty sure that’s why there’s so many of them out there 😈

  • OH: “I don’t need to get washed. I got washed on Wednesday.” #parenting

  • 📚 I love when Kindle pre-orders drop and new books appear in my hand! Today is Elizabeth Bear’s Ancestral Night and Sarah Davis-Goff’s Last Ones Left Alive.

  • “Far-left”. Ha. twitter.com/GOP/statu…

  • Oh no. It’s World Book Day next week.

  • There’s a broken tile on our bathroom floor and, when someone stands on it, it sounds exactly like a floor switch from Prince of Persia.

  • Also, what is the point of butterfly? Every other stroke seems to have a use or purpose. Butterfly is just “let’s make this really difficult.”

  • I will never not chuckle at my son’s swimming instructor standing by the pool demonstrating the movements for butterfly.

  • Creepy dog robots are better at doors than I am. twitter.com/OnlyInBOS…

  • 📚 This is interesting. Ararat was great fun. twitter.com/DEADLINE/…

  • Older son: “The book I’m reading is really old. It was published in 2003.”

    Me: 😶

  • I do like the look of these, especially the Pelham Blue. twitter.com/cultpens/…
