Rabbit hole of the day: trying to get heart rate data into a usable format from Samsung Health. Exporting it is one thing. Converting it to something usable is what turns this exercise from a “rabbit hole” to a “rabbit complex”. pic.twitter.com/vtGzY27CVE

“To a former speechwriter, it was like watching a wound drain; it was like eating toothpaste canapés, it was like holding centipedes on your tongue; it was like hearing a ringtone of “Macarena” during a funeral, and no one can find the phone.” washingtonpost.com/opinions/trump…

Trump wants to be at the center of all events ... yet for some reason he has refused every invitation to throw out the first pitch at an MLB game. si.com/mlb/video/2018… It's all the more baffling given his doctor's descriptions of how magnificently physically fit Trump is

20 years ago today, Office Space came out in theaters. This is the clapper from the last scene we shot. As you can see, Stephen Root nailed it in two takes. And that's the actual stapler from the movie. (It got burned when Milton set the building on fire.) pic.twitter.com/JYNiiwGDRn

This one is easy. When Anna was 8, I made the decision that unless I was out of town, I would walk her to school every morning. And I did. Those short walks, and the conversations, connected us in the deepest way. She ended up letting me walk her even as a high school senior. twitter.com/sacca/status/1…
