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.

does everyone have a birthday today? I'm in my apartment waiting for the heat to go and I hear Germans outside singing "heppy bearss-dey tuuu yuu!"

TNG take: I'm just really glad that Data fucked that one time

nngh! flexing my fucking BOUNDARIES! I may be alone for the rest of my life but at least I won't be mistreated

Suddenly, with an unearthly roar, the stench of brimstone filled the air. In a swirl of smoke and flame, a dark figure appeared, with robes of pure shadow and fiery eyes.

"WHAT FOOLISH MORTAL DARES SUMMON ME, THE MIGHTY—" The demon stopped abruptly. It frowned at the tasteful Swedish pine furniture on display, then sighed. "Dammit, not again."

a friend says there is likely to be a thunderstorm in Berlin later today. I'd love that, but my weather app steadfastly says "sunny & 35 & no hope".

because i'd left facebook and instagram ages ago, i had a newsletter with which i informed my small pool of friends, most of whom live nine hours behind my time zone, about my life.

today i finished converting my latest newsletter into markdown and made it a post on my new jekyll-powered blog. god fucking save me.
