Having a sad 

I feel like this:
"I know startin' over's not what life's about
But my thoughts were so loud I couldn't hear my mouth."

(on to starting over again...)

Having a sad 

Looks very likely our last Airbnb guest was this weekend. The PA house is very close to selling and is quickly emptying out.

I'm very done with Philipsburg, but I put so much of myself in to this house. It's starting to make me sad to move on, even though it's the right choice.

@mike Sorry man, that's tough. Travel is deffo one of the top things I miss due to covid.

Tech question - tv wifi Australia 

@Andrea @stibbons Roku is nice. Standalone remote control. Fire sticks are good but it depends on where you stand on Amazon as a company.

Not sure roku is *better* as a company, so ymmv.

The Dear Hunter: Act II lyrics analysis 

@LibertyBeta @Gargron tbh I'm the same... I get the broad strokes of the story, but reading the Genius analysis of the lyrics, there's way too much specific shit to keep in my head. I just think of Act 2 as
Boy's mom dies
Boy goes to city
Boy falls for hooker
Boy breaks up with hooker


Since Cuomo gave the word that protestors could get tested, we went and got it done today. I took plenty of precautions and it was just a local demonstration last weekend, but better safe than sorry.

At any rate, the test is not that bad, but hoo boy does it fuck your sinuses for a hot minute.

When I was a student a car ran over my only optical mouse (don't ask). I made this cobbled together mess from the pieces and used it for quite some time afterwards because I couldn't afford a new one at the time

Constant anxiety right now. Last night I woke my wife up when I hopped up, half-awake from a nightmare, tossing the sheets thinking something was crawling on me. Dunno what to do about it.

@thegibson Peeps don't seem to recognize they're on the losing side of history.

If I were a betting man, I'd put money on this being an inflection point.

Covid, misanthropy 

Ah yes, beautiful weather and a holiday weekend, so every asshole in the area is at the preserve.

No, it's cool, just overcrowd the place. And don't worry about masks.

And obviously, it's a huge inconvenience that the bathrooms are closed! So just piss behind my privacy fence. Where I can see you perfectly from my back window.

That's exactly how I want to spend my long weekend!

@suetanvil It is sort of nice when people just broadcast themselves like that. It makes the process of deciding whether you want to keep hanging out with them much faster.

@suetanvil Yes! I'm pretty sure I made that point. He was just the kind of evangelical who thought you had to purge your life of anything even remotely "demonic." He also thought Sara Palin was a great VP candidate for McCain in 08 so he didn't have the greatest judgment.
