It's that Phase of the work year where I must break out the XP VM to use the ancient VB6 IDE to fix bugs in old software I've been trying to replace the rest of the year instead. 😱👻 Happy Halloween in September to me.
(Wow this VM is painfully slow. I forgot Windows XP even had this many ways to hourglass.)
Smeap is the honk of a flamingo. Smeap was also at least once, a storybook land at the weird intersection of TV ads and the worlds they seem to inhabit. It was a place where wars were fought over sodas, and talking polar bears had very good reasons to guard soda machines. It was a place where rainbow color candies were harvested for electric power. It was a place where a prairie dog might move to big city inhabited mostly by Pink Flamingos to follow her dream to be private investigator, only to get slowly entangled in the seedy underbelly of crime and prohibited soda trading of the Neon Flamingos and their syndicate. Social media at times lately feels like it has become almost entirely seedy underbelly with very little upside. Maybe it needs more storybook worlds.
