I’ve discovered not one but two different Krehbiel T-Shirts lately:
I imagine if you have a weird last name, you’ve probably got your own T-Shirt somewhere too.
I’m not very impressed with stories like this because real programmers wrote real text editors (and many other things) in real life like this about thirty years ago. The “dauntingly huge” logic used by that Minecraft player used to be a normal, everyday occurrence.
I feel like I should engage more with Facebook in 2015. But, to be honest, I hate engaging with Facebook. It’s incredibly weird for me to interact with real life people in the way that I’m used to interacting with The Internet. (Yes, I think of Real Life and The Internet as two entirely different worlds.) Publishing content to The Internet is a form of creative expression, whereas writing and liking things on Facebook is more like dinner party small talk.
I don’t quite know what I would say to Facebook anyway. Tonight, after an entirely ordinary day at work, I made myself a lasagna… by opening a box of frozen Stouffer’s Lasagna Italiano and putting it in the oven for an hour. I try to avoid eating such blatantly unhealthy food too often, preferring instead to make something based around a chicken breast, but this week it seemed like a handy shortcut. Also this is a brand new variety of Stouffer’s Lasagna that showed up in my grocery store a few months back, and I like it better than the previous two varieties. It has FRESH CHEESE & AGED PARMESAN, after all.
Anyway, I might post something about the Stouffer’s Lasagna Italiano on Facebook which, to me, would be a hilarious poking of fun at all the foodies on The Internet who post their recipes and report what they’re eating for lunch and dinner. Unfortunately the humor of it would probably be lost on everyone and they would just think it’s weird. Plus all the foodies that I poked fun at would get all defensive. They might start to think that their recipes and lunches and dinners weren’t appropriate content for The Internet. Which, in fact, it isn’t. Hence the humor.
(However, food makes for great conversation in a dinner party.)
Now I’ll head over to Facebook and report on my first Monday in 2015.
P.S. I changed my WordPress theme to the plain vanilla Twenty Fifteen theme. I like it. It looks great on a mobile device.
