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
~fin~

Covid 

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.
