unrelated but also what if all ikeas were swedish embassies? like you could head over to the parts window and renew a passport

celebrating my cat on national dog day
being intentional about what voices we highlighted was an by design and took the effort of many people - usenix, program committees, and chairs over the years.
it's something i think made the conference and field a slightly better place.
LISA was my first professional conference and community. im genuinely excited for the future; SREcon is a natural home for the content, because (imo, anyways) SRE is more than just error budgets and SLOs.
i was on my first LISA program committee in 2012. watching the conference evolve over the last 9? years is something i've been really proud to be a part of. indeed, the content changed over time. more importantly though: the people who presented changed.
ultimately it was a check to make sure rabies wasn’t a thing. cool! okay. makes sense, let’s do that. but without any context other than “can we facetime your cat to make sure she’s okay” i was pretty concerned about like: what could happen here? and why? no one told me what to expect!
apparently abby bit or scratched at the kitty ER on the 19th, which - she was in a terrible state so, not a surprise. had no idea this happened && got a call from my city’s animal control about it earlier today
@emilyst i got in trouble for doing this in the morning - so clearly remember final boss of sonic 2 and my dad turned off the console because it was 545am on a school day 😢
maybe my new name for e*on mu*k
@pho4cexa fwiw, my parents had many ideas about “if your friends really liked you they would do x” and it’s mostly given me long lasting social anxiety, so perhaps one to avoid
