Quick Update

All progress depends on the unreasonable man...

Bench
  • Week of 1-7 June, wow it's June already, how did this happen?
  • Bug out, week 12, well - back to self-isolation.
  • Monday, lockdown Level 3 - we can go outside again, late afternoon walk with Mia, creative writing.
  • Lockdown seems pretty over for now. Hope you managed to build something, start a project, have something to say for the lost time.
  • Good thing I like nagging - a teenager seems to need nagging.
  • Tuesday, got up early to write the weekly blog post, we made winter braaibroodjies - in the oven - they were epic, walk, jacuzzi bubble bath with a beer - aw yeah.
  • Eternal struggle, if you go sit in front of a computer first thing in the morning, you don't get any exercise.
  • Funny, now that I can buy alcohol again I'm less motivated to.
  • Wednesday, Robomop and I cleaned the house, afternoon meeting, pesto pasta, afternoon walk with Mia.
  • I listened to The Moment podcast again about finding a scene.
  • DAs Silent March Towards Self-Determination In The Western Cape
  • We added 1000 independence fb page likes this week. Ideas are bulletproof.
  • Thursday, morning walk, mild slump, weird day, tired of my routine, avoided social media for the day, took a long sunset walk, emailed Derek, watched a live stream interview, watched Blow again - rad movie.
  • Most of us have too many goals.
  • "Life passes most people by while they are making grand plans for it"

  • Technology that has been around the longest has the best chance of sticking around.
  • I figured out I can put keep my phone in airplane mode in the mornings with wifi on - feels a bit more peaceful.
  • Friday, sunset walk, we took a drive to Stellenbosch to get pizza - the Stellenbosch streets were pretty empty.
  • Saturday, pizza for breakfast, weekly shopping outing, g&t, we made ostrich burgers on the braai.
  • "When you want to upset a conservative lie to them. When you want to upset a liberal... tell them the truth."

  • Playing simPolitics is rather absorbing - it's a bit like the Hunter S. Thompson books on politics - I get it now.
  • I've discovered a problem with Robomop - it's not designed for homes where somebody has long hair.
  • Sunday, watched The Dark Knight, extended afternoon walk, jacuzzi bubble bath, we watched The Dark Knight Rises again - epic movie.
  • "The reasonable man adapts himself to the world: the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man." -- George Bernard Shaw

  • ps. Got a mail back saying: "Wow! Fuck yeah! What a cool project!" - which kinda made my week.

Have a fun week, crazy kids.
