Yep. It was a horrible mistake. But it’s gone now. ::/

I had a bagel for dinner and I think this will prove to have been a horrible mistake.

One upside to the whole [waves hands] stomach thing? I haven’t used ANY fast acting insulin today. Saving SO much money.

Downsides, of course, include the fact that I’m desperately hungry, light headed, dehydrated, AND feel like I’m going to throw up any second. But the money is what matters in this country.

Let me put it this way: I don't disagree with what Marco Inaros did at this point; I just disagree with his reasoning.

No, I don't know why I had the urge to listen to Rage Against the Machine just now.

(it's a bunch of things. last year's protests, turning the senate, gamestop, this work thread about IT's acceptable use policy... _so_ many places where we're _so_ close to "fuck you, we're done." and yet we're very obviously not.)

I realize a lot of the first part of this is projection and wishful thinking, but: it _feels_ like I'm sitting here looking at a world poised at the brink of an actual proper revolution and seeing it go "yeah, but... nah."

No, it took YOU this long to rearrange your desk so you can use your work computer without the edge of your desk digging into the side of your hand causing constant pain.

shut up.

The night before an early morning appointment, when you need to get up two hours earlier than usual, is exactly when you want to have digestive problems that prevent sleep.

Evidence seems to be mounting for gastroparesis. ::/

A badly timed coincidence of circumstances has left me extremely sad today, to an extreme that cannot be tempered by any amount of linen sheets. Music isn’t doing anything either, so far.

[makes quiet comfy contented noises while completely failing to go to sleep]

It’s a good thing I forget about this so quickly, or I’d spend a literally obscene amount of money on new sheets every month.

Seriously, I’m sorry to harp on this, but as nice as linen sheets are, _brand new linen sheets_ are a special kind of ecstasy. Worth selling one’s immortal soul to humans for.

When I was a young man, I sort of scoffed at Odin‘s obsession with linen (see Long Dark Tea Time of the Soul).

I. Was. So. Foolish.

This message brought to you by my brand new dark slate linen sheets from Cultiver.

I realize the mythbusters part isn’t really news, but it was news to me.

Poking around at Discovery+ and am not impressed so far: * firetv app sucks, * crash test world not in catalog, * they tried to reboot mythbusters and failed horribly.

Ways not to discovered there's a greasy mess on the counter:

Half an hour after laying your ipad in it.
