NOTES: – CorgiCon is tomorrow! – I spent a lot of time today watching the Blue Angels fly over SF. Here is a picture of what a lot of that experience looks like. – I like to use a Mason Jar for drinks, and today I took it down to the cafe I like to get coffee from and got a steep discount for bringing my own cup!
