How would you express a function in words?
I'd say "x => x.IsActive" translates to "element is active".
So in case of a Where you'd get "where element is active" and in case of an OrderBy you'd get "order by element is active".
If you're looking for a more literal reading I'd say "x arrow x dot active", which is a lot easier than describing another function in detail.
I guess I don't have to explain myself
The customer always does an export at the end of the day, at least according to the customer.
They can't even not do it because their business depends on it.
Needless to say, that's not how they work at all and I just got a month worth of exports all at once
Of course, my code can't handle this because of reasons (mostly because of a ridiculously complicated pre-XML format that I have to use).
The project is over budget and I can't spend any more hours on it.
Sometimes I think I've chosen the wrong profession
Fix a motorcycle engine.
Cook a gourmet meal.
Sew curtains, curtain liners, tablecloths, napkins, pillow cases, mostly via the sewing machine.
Change fuses and lightbulbs, wire a house, wire a motorcycle loom from scratch, fit a shelf, heck - create furniture including shelves, solder, desolder, read a circuit diagram, fix a PCB (with a circuit diagram).
Oh, and I can bang out code too.

I replaced the SSD with a 2TB drive, to save having to carry external drives and/or have everything on bloody annoying memory sticks.
I don't really give a damn if a program loads a tenth of a second faster, or if windows boots in three seconds less. Once stuff is loaded, memory is faster than SSD (unless it isn't any more; I don't read all the tech press), so I just max out the memory on all my machines.
