Yesterday, my workplace offered a 30-minute presentation about how things are going. It was one of those ‘chill at your desk and log in online to hear the presenter / see their screen’ kind of deals, and it was optional, but why not? About halfway through, we were treated to this: Yes, that’s a lion, […]

My ‘mis-routed package’ has arrived in the state, as of 9 pm Thursday night, AND it just got scanned for its ‘destination scan’ at 6 am this morning! New ETA is TODAY, I’m so excited! (Note: This is… not a very exciting package. It’s a couple shirts I got because there was a good a […]

-After getting my package to the next state over on June 3, UPS gave me the worrying ‘we’ve misrouted the package; this may cause a delay’ message on June 4, and it’s been an ominous silence ever since. +On the plus side, it’s pay day! Find that silver lining.

I re-watched the fight club episode of Guardian (ep. 18), and 1) it was great; 2) see #1. Also, in the scene where Lin Jing is tracking things (I love that they explain so many things with ‘oh, Lin Jing invented something’ and then when they need to not be able to do that thing […]

My computer refuses to admit that “portaled” is a perfectly acceptable way to express the verb concept “to travel via portal.” I portaled over there! You portaled over here! They portaled to THE MOON! At first I thought maybe it just wanted two letter l’s (portalled — mm, I don’t know, if it’s a made-up […]

maybe just one window

Me: It’s June! Summertime! Time to open the windows! ::it is 50F degrees outside, cloudy, with a breeze blowing directly in my open windows:: Me (wearing a fleece jacket and huddling under a blanket): Ah, fresh air! It’s bracing! It’s lovely! It’s… a bit chilly? My brain: psst! You could close the windows! Me: But […]

happy June!

The three stages of my day so far: *It’s June! A new month! A fresh start! *ahahahahaha so far I’ve started the month by sleeping late and having the cat attack my foot when I picked up her food bowl (it was empty! I was going to refill it!) *OKAY. TAKE TWO ON THIS MONTH.

Sometimes I stumble into fics from other peoples’ bookmarks lists on AO3 and think to myself ‘what a bunch of charming asshole weirdos.’ The Dawn Will Break Before You, by thepartyresponsible “Okay, heartbreaker,” he says, “how much to put the tires back on the car?” Jason rolls his eyes and gestures at him with the […]

workaday Thursday

Thursday, May 30th, 2019

Yesterday afternoon I wound up in a very long meeting, at which my presence was necessary for perhaps 10 minutes. (Which is fine. Sometimes it’s good to be minimally involved.) But it’s standard in my workplace to bring your computer with you to meetings (in case you need to look something up, of course! definitely […]
