hello darling!!!

ok. i didn’t take notes this week so i’m a little light on info. i spent a lot of the week working on programming projects (work, lima, imessages, partyfingerd, docfiles, etc) and learning languages (zig, go, deno). sofia finished the last essay for her diplomat. she did rly well, i’m proud of her. i’m gonna need to start starting work later, because i keep falling asleep so late and waking up so early. also thinking maybe i should take a couple days holiday to live in the city a little more.

i got a little sick again this week. i get sick a lot ever since getting the diabetes. i think maybe i let my blood sugar get too high and became a breeding ground for all mystery viruses. i ate cherries and drank tea and started to feel better on Saturday, which was lucky for it is Sofia’s birthday weekend.

i made a new theme for my blog which focuses on readability and is inspired by the web design of my friend’s blog in 2002.

we didn’t manage to go to the frida kahlo museum. it’s ticket-only and was sold out :-(

saturday we went to plaza toreo to get cute clothes and boots. we ate at a restaurant called perros & burros, which we were skeptical of but turned out to be delicioso. maybe we will go back and get one of their 4 foot long hot dogs. i drank 2 litres of beer with our delicious fajita lunch and took some very pretty pictures of the birthday girl. we shopped for clothes, i got some nice new shirts and a pair of slip-ons from vans. we bought matching shits the colour of frida kahlo’s house. we got some (a lot) of weed from a nice chap, and went home and drank beer and smoked weed from a pipe the birthday girl fashioned from a carrot and we talked and laughed and watched half of a movie and fell asleep.

Sunday we played some Mario Kart, spend a while trying to work out what the lyrics of the last verse of The Pogues – Fiesta is actually trying to say (using her native spanish and my native ability to understand shane macgowan when he talks), then we went to a big park and walked for a while, then to a place for burritos and margaritas, and then to walmart for groceries, and then home. she has left now to visit her cats.

in mexico you don’t get any vacation time until you’ve worked at a job for 1 year.

what programming languages can be used in embedded devices? c, c++, micropython, circuitpython, tinygo, zig, rust, ulisp… are there others? anyway i’m a sleepy little bitch and need to go now. xx love you, see you in the pyramids.

oh, p.s., i added more features to partyfingerd so you can now use the userpart to ask for a specific post. for example, this post can be read by running finger week-31-2022@chee.party.

i gave myself an inverted bob with the kitchen scissors. it looks really cute! you can do anything if you just believe and drink a bottle of mezcal.

“what are you thinking about?” “UNIX”

going out for breakfast with her family for her mother’s birthday today. very anxious about it. i understand little Spanish and speak much less.

chee, 10a.m.

it was a wonderful time. they are lovely people. we went to a museum and looked at stained glass and wandered around the historic centre, an area of mexico city i know and love well. on laurita‘s advice, i employed physical comedy. hiding the salt, pretending to eat a spoon with a knife and fork.

she was finishing some work for her diplomat this week and it meant a lot of staying up until 3-4. being a dog, it is difficult for me to sleep when the other members of the household are awake and doing strange things at the kitchen table so i was awake late most night. i’ve been sleeping just a couple hours a night, because work starts at 5-6. i got some good sleep towards the weekend, though, and the diplomat is basically finished now so we have more free time to do fun things together. on Friday night we lay in bed drinking tequila, and then we got up and went on a long walk. she forgot her big puffy coat on Thursday so i brought it to her at lunch and we ate hamburguesas. it’s been a big week for hamburguesas and tequila.

in other news i’ve been writing a lot of code and publishing it. and reading a lot about the history of UNIX again. sometimes i feel like i’m re-litigating my past. not sure what else to write about right now. i’m more tired now than i’ve been in a very long time, and it feels great.

if you’re looking for some computer stuff to do i’d like to recommend Zig and

good luck, everyone.

oh, nobody cares about this, but i revoked my pgp key and the new public key is available at https://chee.party/public.key and all good keyshops. support your local keyring.

my e-mail is yay@chee.party.

ok, time to finish unpacking the groceries and then hopefully writing a bit of the code i was going to write today. lol i went out for breakfast until like 10p.m.
