Put your weird out there. People will love it.

work is hell 

Contractually required to “love it” when my manager opens a conversation with “so I’ve been having trouble figuring out what to do with you”.

Pondering the regime change implied by the transition from ‘65 Love Affair to Summer of ‘69.

The Thunder Signet is my Hammer.

In the process of learning how evil the cops are I've also gradually come to understand how little our society is equipped to actually help people at all.

Home faux-automation: I’m discovering that a combination of a slightly less than dumb thermostat, a small set of motion-sensor light switches and replacing some door hinges with spring-close options covers about 90% of my home automation needs without requiring “smart” anything.
