Cloudflare recruiter: Come work for us!
Me: No way

Today, two separate people were trying to find me with the description "that person who talked about BMCs." I'm ok with this as a personal brand.

My gate for this morning's flight lacks a jetway....and a plane. Instead, there is a bus...... to take us to the plane. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Poe, our Corgi, pulls my heart strings every time I leave the house. He follows me to the door, smiling and ready to play. When I close the front door, he runs to window to watch me. 😭
