Waffles are a mystery to me in a way that pancakes aren’t. My pancake batter is pretty consistent—my waffle batter is thick one time, thin the next. A pancake you can watch as it cooks on the griddle, while the waffle forms unseen within the iron. The same amount of pancake batter poured upon the griddle produces relatively uniform cakes. The same amount of batter poured on the waffle iron produces a varying amount of either over- or under-filled waffles. I can consistently get about the same number of pancakes from a batch of batter, but the number of waffles produced is different each time. I’ve made the perfect pancake many times over; I’ve yet to make a perfect waffle.

Just discovered that you can pinch the onscreen iPad keyboard into a small iPhone keyboard, which you can then position wherever you’d like in the screen. I’m walking, writing, and sipping coffee. This device definitely sparks joy.

I don’t understand the “magic” moment the iPad community seems to be going through with the new keyboard and cursor. I’ve been using an iPad as my primary computing device for years, and I’ve never once thought that I need a mouse or trackpad.

You don’t need a pointing device when you have a touchscreen, right? It’s built-in. It’s called your finger.

So close to finishing up the Bounty Hunter role in RDO. It was my least favorite of the original three, but I’ve had a lot of fun with it the past couple of days. Once it’s done, I guess I’ll start grinding the Moonshiner role.

Gave up on Fallout 76. The survival mechanics were upped, and they did me in. The tedium outweighed the fun, so I left for Red Dead Online. I’ve been happily grinding out bounties and collectibles the past few days.
