Just to be 100% clear: "Full Stack" is bullshit. It means you're looking to pay someone once for two jobs, and/or it means you want someone mediocre at both. Back end and front end are very different types of skills, and it's damned near impossible to specialize in both while staying current on new developments. If someone _can_ do it, you should be paying them well north of 200.

As you may recall, after my little double-weekend adventure in ICUs a year and a half ago, a rule was put in place that if I vomit three times, I go immediately to the ER.

Today I appear to be suffering from food poisoning. I’ve just risked a third strike, because I was desperate for some calories. We’ll see how long the soup lasts. ::/

Always amused (and annoyed) to get a relisting notice from ebay on an item I'm watching and see that it was relisted at the exact same price it just failed to sell at.

I'm going to say this, even tho I risk a home invasion as a result:

I have an unopened package of chocolate/peanut-butter oreos. I have been saving it until I really need it.

I worry that may be this weekend, and that would be bad. It's too early for that kind of panic.

A measure of how bad things are getting tho: I’m thinking about playing around with facial hair styles. Ignoring the infrequent maintenance, I haven’t actually changed _style_ in, like, a decade and a half.

This may just be the indigestion taking, but I kinda doubt it.

I mean, I’m a hermit already, so the never-leaving-the-house thing is fine. Honestly happier than before, ‘cause there’s no pressure to actually go to the office. It’s just the whole watch-the-world-fall-apart thing that’s probably going to be an issue. Particularly given the people fighting so hard to make sure nothing changes and they get to stay on top.

I’m doing mostly okay, but keep glancing sideways at my brain, wondering when it will suddenly be NOT okay.

Because I’m pretty sure, if it happens, it will be extremely sudden and extremely NOT.

Rewatched Birds of Prey, and that was good.

Considering making a playlist of that and Captain Marvel and just leaving it on repeat all day from now on.

Hm. $20 to watch Birds of Prey via AMC's streaming service.

Kinda wishing I'd had a chance to see it in the theatre a couple more times before everything shut down. Woulda been cheaper, too. Tho they do say "Buy", not "rent", so presumably I can amortize the cost across a dozen or so viewings. Even if 'buy' is a lie when everything has drm and can disappear on a whim.

So glad my Penzey's order shipped before they shut down their warehouse. I don't know what I'd've done if I'd run out of Justice.

Why do offices exist? Can we just continue (mostly) not having them & commuting to them after this?

Limiting myself to 20mg tonight, tho I suspect I need more like 70.

Or perhaps a summer robe that thinks it’s a mad scientist’s coat.

Now I’m imagining it in purple silk with silver thread.

Crap, I need to adopt a tailor now, don’t I?

I think what I want is a light- to mid-weight knee-length non-pullover tunic with a Velcro (or maybe even magnetic) howie-coat style closure.

Basically a mad scientist coat that thinks it’s a dress.

Don’t even get me started on the lack of himations.
