Found myself paying $2.52/litre for petrol the other day and actually stopping filling the tank about halfway through. I can write off my fossil fuel delinquency on tax, but even for me that was a bit rich.

Wait! Stop! Don't click away. I really like the look of the all-electric XC40.

I was, of course. I forgot to check the contents of my Crumpler day pack for contraband. Specifically for weapons.

The virus of doubt.

I’ve been spending a lot of my reading time on fitness and exercise recently, looking for ways to repair my body after last year’s misadventures. I’ve decided to lean into my strength training and cut back a bit on the cardio, but that’s by the by.

As I spent more time browsing these sites, of course, various algorithms started to feed more of the same to me, and the more I read, or really the more clickbait I scanned, the more ticked off I became.
