Loving It: Google Home

I've always thought that it would be pretty cool to have an assistant to help me with stuff.: "Jacek, please clear my schedule for this afternoon." "Did anyone call while I was out?" "Get me somebody. Anybody. And get me someone while I'm waiting!" Unfortunately I'm not (even close to) enough of a big shot ...

Loving It: Google Pixel 2

A few weeks ago, I was putting away groceries and listening to a podcast. The cat really wanted to chew on a plastic bag, so he was sulking in the doorway, just waiting for me to leave one unattended. When I finished up, I picked up my phone to move to the living room. At ...

Day 11: Regan MacNeil

(Or: "What an excellent day for an exorcism") The Exorcist scared the crap out of me as a pre-teen. I'm not sure my parents would have let me watch it, but I was able to rent it while visiting my Grandma. I watched a few things at her place that I probably wasn't old enough ...
