It sounds like there's a huge flock of giant mechanical seagulls outside my window confused

The machines are finally taking over, we're trying to set up a resistance in the west coast but they may already be on to us.

Godspeed.

- First time in my whole life I've run caloric deficits on purpose. Wasn't unsympathetic before but have better understanding now why this is hard for so many people. Still feel caloric surplus is harder for me personally -- the "surplus" always seems to find a way out one way or another -- but pretty much food management of any kind is weirdly hard.

- Yeah buddy, honking repeatedly helps make the light change faster.

- It feels like such a waste not taking a job once I've done two interviews and gotten a nice offer for it, but I kind of just don't want that job.

- Broke my phone twice in a row last winter so got a super expensive case to protect it. Haven't dropped it once since. Go figure.

- Wife is excited to paint and decorate and buy furniture and raise kids and host parties. I'm excited to load laundry into the front of a machine instead of the top.

Interesting how, once you fall out of the matrix, you gain the perspective to realize how distorted and poorly constructed it is.

Narrowly avoided people I knew from high school in line at the convenience store today.

I sometimes wish everyone I ever knew IRL would spontaneously explode so I wouldn't ever have a chance to accidentally run into them.

Videogames have such ridiculous, unbelievable power fantasies. Like in the game I'm playing, I was being charged an outrageous processing fee, pursued it with the company, and they ended offering me a solution that reduced the fee to a reasonable level Wink

I spent way too much money at SDCC this weekend... $118ish on Kim Jung Gi’s sketchbook Omphalos, $50 on Peter Han’s Dynamic Bible and $30 on two T-shirt’s. Uh-oh I would have bought some Gundam or Star Wars model kits, but lemme tell ya those were pricey. Including the anime figurines, they’re nice but expensive or overpriced in my opinion.

I also perused some anime booths and J-List’s booth, J-List was actually pretty cool. The guys running that booth were hysterically cheeky and their company’s sense of humor is awesome. Whenever you bought either a hentai dvd or game or manga, they gave you a button that said “I bought hentai at comic-con.” Laughing

I strongly considered buying hentai.

Just struck me that as the spider's web is made from stuff the spider ate, it's really the previous generation of flies helping to catch the present one.

Wow, softcombat and plastic weapons seem to have come a long way in the last ten years.

I really wish there were a good English equivalent for ganbatte, cause it's a sentiment I keep trying to convey in work emails, but "do your best!" sounds stupid and "good luck!" is about chance instead of effort.

I had a dream where I was volunteering to help with some kind of months-long survival-marathon thing, and I was told to prepare a box of menstrual products, Advil and chocolate for the participants who might need that, so I put it in a glass box on the wall with a sign, "Emergency: In case of communist insurrection, break glass."

I thought Unwritten was obscure, and then it turns out One Weird Trick To Be a Hero has exactly five google results.

I explained the plot of the (probably novella-sized) story I'm working on to my sister. "Well, there's this reclusive guy who gets an unwanted guest, and this guest leaves excrement all over the basement floor. But it isn't as bad as it sounds, because he's a magical gardener who excretes top quality soil." I think I need to work on my pitch: The reception was somewhat unenthusiastic.

I wonder if there's a market niche for sex workers specialized in deflowering.

I think I actually saw a documentary once about an Amsterdam brothel that specialized in just that. ETA: Yeah it's on Netflix

Sorry, the link seems to be broken. The only thing that i see is a Netflix error message, something similar to "Netflix site error - The page hasn't been found" in spanish.

Also, hmmmm. I'm not very interested in brothels, but now I feel a bit bummed that Luxembourg job didn't work out.

Oh, oops, can't seem to get a working link. It's called "Virgin School" if you have Netflix. Seems like a different approach than a lot of brothels (a 4-month training course rather than the more usual "pay by the session and get it over with" thing).

Very interesting. It sounds like a merger between a brothel and sexual surrogacy in that regard.

Whatever they're doing on the construction site today, it sounds like the drums of Khazad-dûm. So if you don't hear from me again, uh, fly, you fools? Uh-oh

Keeping an eye out for your future posts

I've hit the old-person point today where it was cold outside, frost everywhere, and I had to go walk somewhere, so instead of being cool and tough about it I just wore winter gloves because I'd rather be warm than either of those things

Oooh, may I post a little pun here? May I?

If the two R. R.-s Tolkien and Martin had ever merged personalities, they’d have written “A Song of Eyes on Fire”.
