My wife and I held a housewarming yesterday in our house of two+ months. So many friends came and it was a fantastic time!

But we’re now agonizing over gifts without tags and we can’t recall their givers! We greeted, hugged, here this is for you!, start talking about the house, then another friend arrives and we context switch and our mental note about the gift doesn’t make it into the NVRAM.

So the afternoon is now a blur of memories. We look at some of the plants, wine glasses, and wine and can’t remember who to thank.

In an oblique way, this is a good problem to have: So many friends wishing you joy that you can’t remember them all!

My iPhone 6s’ battery has been losing efficacy over time, and its processor has been performance-throttled for the past two months. So, I’m sending it to Apple for a battery replacement. I opted for the mail-in procedure because I’m lazy.

I’ll be without my phone for “five to nine business days,” which sounds like two weeks to me. I haven’t been without a mobile phone since 1995! (My first phone was an analog Motorola microTAC.)
