The Arc of the Moral Universe is Long, But it Bends Toward Updates

That lasagna I made came out great. So that's nice.

Been working on some fun side programming. It's been too long.

That Ruby Book Bundle is doing well. We hit $10k in the first 24 hours, though that's split 6 ways and ignores some expenses. Still, not bad. I will be shocked if day 2 is anywhere near that, but it's hard to complain about.

Suddenly feeling thoroughly unmotivated at work. Not sure what's up with that.

Not having any luck catching up on sleep. I lay down, but eventually get bored and get back up. It's not every night, but it's happened a few times lately. I'm getting, oh, maybe 7 hours a night. Not terrible, but not getting myself back to "fully rested." Not sure why. But going to bed earlier is not, currently, acting like a proper solution to the problem.

I can't sleep later as a solution either. But that's because Puff has decided that 6am is a great time to hop up on the bed every morning, meowing loudly. She's generally feeling really demanding lately. She's fine on food, water, litter and so on, I've been keeping up with it pretty well. But I think she's lonely. Either way, she's expressing a lot of dissatisfaction with me, but not leading me to specific "fix it" sites, as she does when she's low on food or water. Presumably I'm supposed to just figure out what's up.

I went and picked up ice cream yesterday. My lovely wife and daughters picked me up a few gift cards before they left, and one was $10 for ColdStone Creamery. So that's enjoyable. I'll be good for ice cream for a bit.
