rain rain

everyone's asleep and the pitter-patter of rain can be heard on the window. i keep forgetting to write here, but at least i'm still writing. i'm a little exhausted and sleepy, but it's been a long time since i've had some alone time to just write, so that's what i'm doing.

i'm writing this in vim, like usual, but i recently turned off syntax highlighting for things, and it's kind of nice and relaxing. some of the bright colors can be jarring, but that could also be fixed by disabling bold highlighting in vim--i dunno lol. anyway, it's a calm experience, and it matches how things look when i'm writing a plain ol' .txt file.

i heard the kid sneeze a couple of times just now, so i'm not sure how much longer i should try writing this out, in case he wakes up, and i'm stuck here, at this point, in this blog post, not knowing what my train of thought was if i were to come back and try to continue. i think this is one of the hardest parts about parenting. you don't really ever get a long enough time to do your own things, or stay in a long enough train of though to get any of the substantial stuff that you could get out before life changed. this isn't bad, it's just different, and i need to get used to it. i guess the benefit of me not having time to write longer blog posts is that folks who like to read my blog don't need to spend a lot of time reading to keep up with what's going on in my life, if there are people reading, which i don't really care if there are... unless they are friends! i care about you!! hahaha.

i think i might make tea and see if i can continue working on my fennel rewrite of what i have currently in scheme--a static, filesystem-based website generator with a shitty homegrown markup-to-html converter lol. hmmmm, speaking of, i should add a parser rule to my markup convert that converts -- to (em dashes).

oh! i got a newsletter in the email that i missed reading for a while by coolguy.website. if you'r reading this, zach, i love reading these, as bad as i am with keeping in touch with you <3. it's wonderful to know how you've been doing, and i miss the computer clubs at solarpunk.cool!! kids take up a lot of time!! but they give great joy and are absolutely wonderful, so that's okay too.

it was really nice to write all this out. i'm considering moving my blog to tilde.town, and just leaving this server for stuff i run in the backend for myself and friends, but i haven't fully commited yet, so if you see that my blog has disappeared from here one day, then i may have moved it to tilde.town--who knows what my brain will decide in the future.
