Daily Head Voices on Monday 2024-01-01

  • Typing this note in the fresh new 2024-01-Jan.org file, in the completely fresh new journals/2024/ directory.
  • Had to fetch GOU#1 from her NYE party in Hermanus, where they had been focusing more on the party parts and less on the sleeping parts.
  • On the way back, stopped at my aunt and uncle in Onrust to give best wishes for the new year in person. Slipped and talked about AI a bit. Oops.
  • Back home, read to GOU#3 (now 7) what I wrote about her in this blog when she was born, and at various points since then. Seeing her reaction makes this activity even more worth it. (pro-tip: Tag post with the GOU in question!)
  • Read about the evolution of aging, the mutation accumulation (MA) and the antagonistic pleiotropy (AP) hypotheses in https://www.nature.com/scitable/knowledge/library/the-evolution-of-aging-23651151/ during the preparation of my traditional year transition blog post. Not depressing at all!
  • Reclining on sofa, back almost horizontal, with laptop on lap, is an underrated ergonomic lifehack.
