In France we saw a couple other museums too (saw a Monet exhibit, and the Army Museum where my dad almost got arrested for forgetting his backpack after sticking his head in a cannon for a picture... fun story) #eurotrip2018

Crowded-ass palace #eurotrip2018

The Palace of Versailles was far and away the worst experience so far. Stood in line outside for almost 2 hours, and then inside the palace was basically just the same line snaking its way through the rooms at a shuffling pace. Should have booked a tour instead. #eurotrip2018

The Pantheon was cool, but a little underwhelming #eurotrip2018

I forget what this place was called but it had the most insane stained glass #eurotrip2018

I couldn't really get a great shot of it. I don't get what the big deal is anyway #eurotrip2018

Stop two, The Louvre #eurotrip2018

Stop one, Notre Dame #eurotrip2018

And of course testing this shit beforehand doesn't matter. It's always going to break down and cause double posts at the most inconvenient time. #eurotrip2018

After what amounted to around 30 sleepless hours of literal torture, we're finally in Paris. #eurotrip2018

Just making sure this thing is still somewhat functional, since I plan on posting pics during my shortly upcoming trip to Europe.

Everyone's all up in arms about Trump's Memorial Day bragging, but honestly wouldn't it be more surprising if he actually did something respectful? #politics

Just played through Doki Doki Literature Club... wasn't really sure what to expect. Pretty great, totally get what all the fuss is about.

I haven't written enough lately. Lately being the last several years. I keep filling all my time with tech projects, but I do enough of that at work already. How do I stop? On a related note, I spun up an Old Time Radio Android app and service called Radiostasis at which is my latest time-sink-du-jour.

Total eclipse 2017 was pretty damn cool. Cloud cover was annoying, but we had a clear view of the first 10-15 seconds of totality where we were, so that was lucky. Got as dark as night and several degrees cooler for about a minute and a half.
