I love you so
you show me things I want to know
you help me make my way round town
and every week I burn you down

starting to realize that when I run out of spoons, it's often because I am inadvertently running a fucking Spoon Library, with 80% of the stock checked out to others at any given moment... and no overdue fees.

let's just see what happens this morning at the doctor, 4th floor, when it's already 25 degrees out on the street.

*two seconds later* I am covered in sweat

wow, I guess I have a working podcast now.

RSS works and things are licensed and, and, and everything.

rabbit rabbit you're so fine, you're so fine you blow my mind, oh rabbit

May 15 is 'what the fuck you still use WhatsApp as of today I may publicly shame you' day

pretty surprised at my own super extreme reaction to getting sealioned by a non-native speaker in my org's English-language working group on gender-aware language.

yesterday at 7am i was awoken by a great thump against my window, and i presumed it had been a bird.

today i noticed that there was a dead bird on my balcony. omg. was it there for a whole day without my noticing? poor little thing.

i removed it with the help of layers of plastic and then bleached the balcony a little. it's so weird to have to deal with dead animals!

either i dreamed someone rang my doorbell at 3:15am or some fucker decided to mess with me (and somehow changed the sound from a boopy noise to a bone-shattering buzzer)

here's how to really annoy me:

1) leave me a message on a service that allows message deletion
2) delete the message
3) send me another message whose first words refer to your having deleted the message

two British English pronunciations i thought were specific to the vocal performances of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost in "The World's End" but later discovered are common to at least a quantity of similar speakers:

"drink up" = "dring cup"
"your own" = "your <glottal stop> own"

wow, i'm belatedly listening to this week's Wait Wait Don't Tell Me, and i'm just now hearing that one of the questions involved the pick-up line work of the esteemed @janellecshane !! yaaaay

@joshmillard oh, one erg, revere: no loner, Evergreen! O ho!

trying out the latest keyboard replacement to be able to remove another Google product from my phone. time it took to type this message: +350%

i tried to give I Care A Lot a chance to show me that its screenwriting had something to surprise me with, but i got very impatient so i skipped through most of it and discovered at the end that no it did not

i am a person who has never heard "Gangnam Style" in its entirety, and never by choice.

this morning's diversion from work is the Wikipedia article on the song, and i'd like to share two things with you.

1) the incredibly detailed and soberly written synopsis of the music video:


kicking sugar for the most part for the next three months to see if my liver's okay. just had a dream about a big gathering of friends with kids where the kids were doing some big competition for which the prizes were huge boxes of candy

also tried to talk to my ex and she just said "I have a cold"
