Today is my first official day at Automattic working as a Happiness Engineer for WordPress.com! 🎉
I don’t feel totally brand new, since I worked for actual money during my trial period, and I’ve been lurking around my new team’s Slack channels for weeks while I waited to officially start, but STILL.
Did you watch the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last night? President Obama continues to have great comedic timing, a fantastic ability to laugh at himself, and isn’t afraid to call people out. (Love it!) Cecily strong was pretty great too.
“I solemnly swear not to talk about Hillary’s appearance because that is not journalism.” Yasss Cecily! #WHCD

Also, let’s pretend Apple sent me one earlier than previously predicted (June!) because of my post lamenting the backorder.
When I met the UPS delivery guy at the door, he said, “I’m delivering a lot of these today…” questioning why he suddenly had a bunch of small, skinny boxes to drop off everywhere, so I said “It’s the Apple Watch!” (a bit too loudly probably) and most likely freaked him out/made him want a Pebble.
Fact: 65-80% of all tornadoes each year occur in the U.S. But WHY?!
Tornadoes are on my mind right now because they’re in the forecast for Dallas for the next few days… Not for sure, of course, but maybe. And maybe is enough to make me worry at least a little bit. There will most certainly be a lot of rain and noisy storming, but hopefully I won’t have to hunker down in a closet.
