"Objectives qua pangram: flex, eschew gadzookery" (40)
another fun cribbage pub story is that I used to rotate our card decks frequently but would only throw them out at the bar for whatever reason (the joke is my pal is a "card-crimper", but really I don't care for when I can tell cards apart or when The One With The Bend always gets cut to either) But we used the same deck of cards the entire pandemic as a point of principle and I threw the deck away at the end of today and that felt nice.
we went to the cribbage pub, which opened up two weeks ago, for the first time in seventeen months. A staff member come to our table and told me he'd recognized my laugh from the back.
Also @wintersonata kicked my and my friend's ass in a three-person game and it's our anniversary

you can see them from the corner of our lot around by the new sunflower patch and there are a lot of newish wildflowers on the sidewalk strip on that side, not bad
the cat thought about thinking about getting worked up about it, but I got some treats out and he seems distracted
gooooooood morning JETFROG
jeez, there are just so many hours before noon?!
I got one strike -- the second or third lifetime for me playing candlepin -- and had a high score of 89
> Benjen, who was…the largest eel in the study, eventually refused to climb the ramp for the uniformly measured 1.1-inch pieces of squid that all of the other trained eels received. The mammoth moray would ascend the ramp only for chunks of squid so large and disproportionate to the eel’s body that one of the paper’s reviewers requested Benjen be stricken from the statistical analysis of the paper.
'average moray eats 1 squid a day' factoid actually just statistical error. Squid Benjen, who lives in tank and eats 10,000 squid a day, is an outlier adn should not have been counted
