Journal Entry – 033

The 2019 Mazda CX-5 loaner car I have is pretty good. It has noticeably less body roll. If it wasn't raining, I would be curious to see how it reacts when I push it.

An idea I had is to start collecting Catholic medals, like patron saint medals. I could bring a different one in my pocket every day.

The Silk Peach-Mango Soy Milk yogurt is pretty tasty.

It's important to remember that fruit juices are acidic too. Because of this, you should use a straw when drinking fruit juices. This keeps the fruit juice from coming in direct contact with your teeth. –

Good to know. Got that quote from this article.

Wife already knows the gender of our second child, but I told her not to tell me yet. I want to wait a little before finding out. – Got this idea from the Tom Clancy's Patriot Games book.

On writing on pocket notebooks while standing:

It is now Thursday and I still haven't heard any updates regarding the work to replace the clutch on my Speed3. I'm not angry because they gave me a loaner car, but I genuinely just want to get an update without having to call them to ask for one.

Grovemade makes some really cool wood and brass products. Also check out American Bench Craft for some leather goods.

The Victorinox Swiss Army Knife Manager is what I'm looking for. It has a phillips screwdriver, scissors, blade and even a ball-pen. It has everything I'm looking for. On a related note, there is actually a wiki website for Swiss Army Knives, it is at, wow haha.

Took Davin to the Trunk and Treat event at our local church. It was a good Halloween event and it looked like Davin had fun. There weren't a lot of people giving out candies, but there were enough. We plan to go again next year.

After we got back home, we made rounds around our neighborhood so Davin can do some more trick or treating. Not a lot of houses were doing trick or treats, but the ones that were, were very much into it. – Next year, instead of making rounds around the neighborhood, we might just go to a different event.

The Silk Almondmilk Vanilla yogurt is delicious.

Working at the office on a Saturday...

Instead of having a Bookmarks page, I should just use a bookmarks hashtag – Yep, I finally made that change recently and even talked about it in this post.

Worked from home on a Sunday. Got some code reviews done and retested more bugs.

Took Davin to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party. Davin had a lot of fun it seems. He didn't even cry when I told him we were going home. The trick is to let him know how much time he has before we have to go home. I told him, “Last 3 games and then we're going home.” On the last one, he still didn't want to go home, so I let him choose one more game. After playing his last game, he was ready to go home.

Went for a family dinner at Olive Garden. Davin was loud and talkative the whole time. I ordered the Chicken and Shrimp Carbonara which was delicious. The Fried Mozzarella appetizer was really good too!
