It has been a huge month and I am physically and mentally draiiiined. Catching up with friends, going out at night (ew), dealing with some mild insomnia and a misbehaving kitten. Hoof. I’m going into the month of May with a terrible cold as well. Ugh.
However, in addition to some challenges - April also hosted many, many positive experiences and successes. So here they are listed, like a journal entry to my future self.
Melbourne International Comedy Festival 2019
Gags n stuff.
James Acaster - Cold Lasagne Hate Myself 1999
E and I spent this whole month absorbing as much stand-up comedy as we possibly could. Highlights were Anne Edmonds (AU), Rhys Nicholson (AU), David O’Doherty (IRE), Demi Lardner (AU), Greg Larson (AU), James Acaster (UK), Maria Bamford (USA) and Zoe Coombs Marr (AU). All of these were sensational shows. Time for a long rest… until next year.
I’m back on Github! Trying to contribute
daily when I have time.
I revived an open source project, Gulp Caddy. v0.0.11-alpha is here and we’d love to have some contributions in the form of testing! 😍
I’m going to be using Gulp Caddy to remove my CodeKit dependency on this website - so I can convert it into a Hugo Theme, and make it open source!
Some repo’s I 💖’d this month:
Life long learnin’

Lovin’ this kittin’
Mow is doing great. She’s getting bigger, smarter and somehow lazier.
This is our kitten, Mowmow. Well, maybe not a kitten for much longer.
She’s just a kitty
She’s sittin’ pretty 🎵
