Happy birthday to me, as today marks the completion of another orbit around good
old Sol. To follow up about my phone, I had a normal charge cycle yesterday, so
not needing to replace it can be my present from the universe. That's a
double-edged gift, as it comes with the reminder that my phone "problem" was me
just not paying enough attention to its battery level, perhaps due to my
advancing years. The universe can be a dick like that sometimes. But my
non-problem led to a few recommendations for apps to help manage a phone's
charging, so there's another gift. Thanks to all who offered help. Anyway, as
I've mentioned in the past, I like my birthdays quiet. This being Thanksgiving
week in the U.S. will help with that. Another gift! Quite the haul this year.
Happy birthday, Blue! I hope you're not getting too gray.

Yeah, I was recently looking through Red-Eye LAN party photos I took from 22+ years ago. Good times. The mandatory all-up 64 player Quake matches were memorable.
Disney: As a stock holder, and an occasional customer of the parks, I am actually welcoming Iger's return. I have had issues with the way Iger ran the company and some of his dumber decisions over the years, but I will say that Iger actually cares about the brand. Chapek flat out doesn't care about the brand, and the quality of the parks have been suffering through his rather inept cost cutting measures.
