Sign up for a 5K, they said! It’ll be fun, they said! I’m pretty sure that walking a 5K in the rain will not be fun, but I am going to do it anyway, as a sort of learning adventure. Things I Am Reminding Myself: *Will be easier than hiking in the rain, because there […]

it’s a head-scratcher

Friday, April 19th, 2019

Today’s the big day at work: time for the company meeting! One of the company meetings. The one that’s supposed to be held on-site, but is being held off-site for unexplained reasons. (I mean, a suspicious person might think it’s so they can fire all of us at once, but there’s probably less than a […]

some Guardian thoughts

Thursday, April 18th, 2019

So. Watched the eps with the whole ‘freezing to death in the lab’ situation. I can appreciate the need to create a peril scenario (I guess; I mean, any time I write it always turns out to be a misunderstanding, but I can grasp the concept). And I am willing to accept that *somehow* the […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, April 17th, 2019

Yesterday I had one of those moments at work when I was asked a question so inane and condescending that I’m sure my face took a journey (damn those years of call center work, for reducing my skill at faking facial expressions!). And I was so torn, because on the one hand, these people clearly […]

problem: solved

Tuesday, April 16th, 2019

My TPMS problems are solved! Well, sort of. Back in January, when the light first started blinking and I learned that one or more of the sensors themselves were no longer working, I decided to put off dealing with it until my next oil change. Unfortunately, that tactic only worked until the oil change actually […]

outdoor adventure day

Monday, April 15th, 2019

(It was yesterday. Today it’s raining. Plus, work.) Anyway, it’s April and that means that I did the 3rd annual April hike along the high ground at the local park. *Ground conditions: One tiny patch of snow. Some mud and standing water, which could be avoided with minor-to-moderate effort. Better than expected! *Bug level: Some […]

SALT GUY

My #1 favorite thing about the new Star Wars trailer is that it has led to a return of the hilarious ‘I’m gonna taste this dirt’ gif from TLJ. Every time I see that on my tumblr dash, it makes me laugh. WHO DOES THAT? Things I want to see in the new Star Wars, […]

where is my decoder ring

Saturday, April 13th, 2019

Important questions for a caturday: *Is this Needed Rest, or am I going into A Decline? *How much sleep is Too Much sleep? *Can cats have seasonal allergies? *Where is the sunshine??? *Will I ever feel like cooking real food again, or will I live on sandwiches forever? *Does it really count as daily tidying […]

the struggle is real

Friday, April 12th, 2019

As someone who STILL cannot remember the mnemonic about how many days each month has (luckily a small child taught me how to count them out on my knuckles instead), I was so excited that I finally memorized “righty-tighty, lefty-loosey.” (It, uh, still took a long time.) Here’s the thing, though: they rhyme is So […]

payday

Thursday, April 11th, 2019

Why is Thursday such a good day? Because we get paid on Thursdays! Hallelujah! Also, my workplace is *finally* reimbursing an expense from January. I (unsuccessfully) tried to explain to someone earlier this week why I was excited about this, but it came down to a lot of me talking about my (okay, super simple) […]
