There's something about technology not working that is especially
annoying for someone who makes software. If something in the kitchen
that just wore out. But when it's something like my laptop not
connecting to the wifi and being powerless to fix it (probably just
needed a router reset, but I can't do that when it's not my router and
no one else is having problems), that just bothers me to no end.

Another one: my car key battery is almost dead which makes it hard to

We had my fiance's sister over last night. She was very upset at her
boyfriend, and understandably so, but that's not my story to share.

What I will share is that I'm very thankful that my fiance and I have
never been that angry at one another. There's something to be said
about two people just trying to get along and being easy-going people
and what that has for levels of stress. Work is stressful. Driving is

Life is too short to be angry, as I see it.

(Clearly, malfunctioning technology is the exception to that and is

times I made it, so it's repeatable!)

From a high level it's: make a roux, add cheese, and add noodles.

Recipe: Homemade Mac and Cheese

While most of this happens, boil some elbow macaroni noodles and strain
them [1].

Heat up a large cast iron pan. Add about 3 tbsp of butter [2]. Once
melted and starting to brown, add 1/4 cup of flour and stir constantly
to keep from burning it.

Once the flour becomes a thick paste [3], add 1 cup of heavy whipping
cream and 1 cup of whole milk and stir until well mixed. It starts out
very soupy but will eventually become mixed together.

Add a block of colby jack cheese, diced into small pieces and keep
mixing away until melted.

Add the drained noodles to this pan and mix until combined.

For extra cheesiness: sprinkle cheddar cheese on top and bake for a few
minutes in the oven.

[1]: Not sure exactly how much I added. It's roughly half a box of
noodles, where a "box" is whatever size Kroger sells.

[2]: I used some fancy French butter I found and cut a 1cm x 4 cm x 1.5
cm piece, which I'm guessing is roughly 3 tbsp.

[3]: I think there's a sweet spot where it is easy to mix together and
combine. I haven't found it yet.

Song: Little Wanderer by Death Cab for Cutie

[Verse 1]:
You sent a photo out your window of Tokyo
Told me you were doing fine
You said the cherry blossoms were blooming
And that I was on your mind
But I couldn't make you out through the glitches
So we say our goodbyes over messenger
As the network overloads
When the network overloads

[Chorus]:
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
Off across the sea
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
Won't you wander back to me
Back to me

[Verse 2]
Always fall asleep when you're waking
Doing the math to the time zone you're at
But if you'll be my bluebird returning
Then I'll be your evergreen
Standing tall on your horizon
Guiding you home to me
Guiding you home to me

[Chorus 2]:
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
Off across the sea
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
Won't you wander back to me
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
How I wish that you could see
Little wanderer, little wanderer
How I need you back with me
Back with me

[Verse 3]:
You sent a photo out your window of Paris
Of what you wish that I could see
But someone's gotta be the lighthouse
And that someone's gotta be me
And I hope your absence makes us grow fonder
When our eyes meet past security, we embrace in the baggage claim
When we kiss in the baggage claim

[Chorus 2]:
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
Off across the sea
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
Won't you wander back to me
You're my wanderer, little wanderer
How I wish that you could see
Little wanderer, little wanderer
How I need you back with me
Back with me
