Me, I almost list my lunch when I saw that :(
Ah, no! Sorry about that. By way of penance I went and searched for images that would trigger my phobia.

Just closing tabs, and I came to the one where this image filled the screen. Which is the full-body-shudder emoji?

Jon’s off to games night at Heffers with his niece and her girlfriend, so Jack and I have the evening to ourselves.

I’ve just switched off the work computer, opened a bottle of wine, and there’s a pork joint roasting (to be accompanied by curly kale - which I love but Jon doesn’t). I’m also going to binge watch some Carnival Row.

We have been wine tasting at the seafront deli, very grown up.

Then we hit the Mythos

Though with global warming, this is easily done in the UK now.

Yeah. Android. Releases are named after sweet treats (eg Kit Kat, Marshmallow, Ice cream sandwich etc etc).

The next release, Q, is as yet unnamed. I am fascinated. A quick google finds few good suggestions (some Spanish/Portuguese). The best was Quality Street. I also liked Quik, but you would have to be as old as me to remember when it was called that.
Well, apparently Q broke Google. It was known as Queen Cake in development, but it's official release name is <drum roll> Android 10.

Meanwhile, something has reminded me of this


Yeah, not something specific, but here we are. I seriously think this sketch may save us from totalitarianism. Probably not, because the English are not self reflexive.

Today we went to Fira, a beautiful place ruined by all the tourists. Tomorrow we are going to see the sunset from Oia and join the rest of the tourists in ruining that too
