My mom got me a GoPro last year for my birthday, and as the weather has gotten a lot nicer, I’ve been using it for various projects.
About a month ago now, I picked up this really cheap accessory pack off amazon. Its been a lot of fun to play with the various attachments and components.
Yesterday on my bike ride to work, I decided it might be fun try out the chest harness. I put it on. Checked that it all worked. Everything seemed to work just fine. I didn’t really think about how on a bike you are at least slightly bent over. The results? 45 min of looking at my handle bars. Its kinda fun to try to figure out where I am from the various peices you can see.
One of my personal goals for this year is to start getting more comfortable sharing knowledge and talking infront of large crowds. As such, I volunteered to give a quick talk on testing, as its always been something I love doing, and ion the new job I thought it would be pretty appropriate.
This is my second Code and Coffee talk ever, and I can see I’m still pretty nervious giving the talk, but I think other than a few technical glitches (which were thankfully edited out) it went really well.
I’ve been really enjoying the pizza experiements I’ve been doing lately. Last night’s pizza was left over bbq sauce, pulled chicken, mushrooms and onions. Also tried out throwing in garlic and italian herbs into the crust.
I think it turned out pretty well, except for the lack of roundness.
So I’ve had conversations with people recently about re-reading books and re-watching shows/movies. Now that its so easy to get new content through app stores, or e-book readers, the number of times I re-read has gone drastically down, but here are some of my lists of content I’ll rewatch many times, or re-read, etc.
So this year my mom decided I should have a KitchenAid Mix Master for christmas. So far I’m loving it.
Last weekend I totally experimented by making my first ever batch of meatballs. So Nigel and I go off to the store to figure out what we can find. We end up wanting a mixture of meats, so we go with ground turkey and ground sirloin beef.
I’ve been slowly trying out a couple random cat toys for the cat. So far mine has been mostly meh about them. These cat springs were highly recommended on amazon, so decided to check them out. The idea of cat playing with springs is very weird, but why not right?
