I am going to buy this (these) today and reasons why

I might move my gaming to it. Gotta see if Witcher 3 runs on Mac… [eta: no. But Minecraft will run]

But mostly i don’t need the power, it’s just that my existing MacBook pro is getting long in the tooth, and it’s time to upgrade. I do need the storage. I have a lot of raw music files i want to edit. (Recordings of friends. I don’t make music.) I also need to wrangle my photo collection into shape.

Bought a three-pack of Justin 2020 Focus. It is a high-level Syrah. Will drink one for Brother-in-Law’s Birthday at Lawry’s.
Special price for members, couldn’t pass it up.

Originally read this as “three-way.” Must have still been thinking about my thread count.

Mmmmm: spaghetti, chili, cheese… I could really go for a three-way right now. With oyster crackers.

I can’t stop buying “World’s Smallest x” items from Perpetual Kid for stockings and now they have new ones and I think I have a problem.

World’s smallest Clue?! Yes. World’s smallet Chess!? Shut up and take my money! World’s smallest slinky! F$%^ yes! And so on…

in physical form. Because the world needs more actuarial joke books.

Is this a book of new material or did the author just pilfer jokes from actuarial jokes.com (which was started by the JerryTuttle and now maintained by Ezra Penland)?

Some are the old ones we all know, some are new (and one was mine).

There are a few memes in there, too. You’ll have seen most of those, as I shared a lot of those as he tweeted them here: https://twitter.com/Actuarial_Tutor

A Boba kit from Trader Joe’s because I’ve never had Boba.

I worked with Actuary Problem Dog for about a year on my second rotation. That’s funny.

Wouldn’t it be more economical to go to a bubble tea place instead?

It was $2 for a 4 pack.
