At the tire shop, and they are just fucking ROCKING OUT to the Frozen 2 soundtrack. I find my people all over the place! #xp
You know that time of the night where it's close enough to when you would normally wake up that you start doing the arithmetic around whether it's worth the futile gesture of trying to sleep, or if you just lean into it, caffeine up, and start the day?
Me either. #xp
My office for the past few (and presumably the next several) weeks. Inappropriate artwork courtesy of my friend Ryan. Ludicrous organization by anxiety disorders. #xp
We're back! In this episode we talk about your company ghosting your referral. What do you do? https://leadingquestionspodcast.com/2020/03/episode-81-walking-with-a-ghost/
Making several quarts of homemade spaghetti sauce...so...I will be eating nothing but pasta this week. Suck it, quarantine! #xp
This quarantine is going to keep going on and on. Some moron on the neighborhood Facebook has been ranting that florists are essential and folks concerned about non-essential companies being open are busybodies. Sigh. #xp
I made the mistake of looking at my 401k. I'm down about half a year's salary. I really hope I get a stimulus check.
But seriously, don't check your 401k or any of your long term investments... #xp
The upsides to this most recent adventure are: I can see clearly out of my right eye again, I'm at a "normal" level of sinus pain, and I feel more or less human for the first time in about 2 weeks. I can't wait to join normal quarantine activities! #xp
At peak pain, the only thing that could offer any relief was the hottest shower I could stand blasting directly on the right side of my face for 5 to 10 minutes. With that, I'd get 1-2 hours of rest. You can't imagine what about a dozen hot showers a day does to your skin. #xp
At yesterday's urgent care visit, I learned some things: taking random collections of medicines to get through the work week can fuck with your blood pressure to the point where doctors become awfully concerned, sinus pressure can impact your eyes, expiration dates are legit. #xp
Irritating Illness That is not Coronavirus (IITinC) seemed like it was waning on Friday, so I was able to do about 7 hours of conference calls...
...whiiich might explain why it came back with a vengeance today: sinus headache, drowning in phlegm, coughing, and sore. #ImDumb
Being ill and having had to WFH for most of this week, I really, really miss Zoom. Teams might have its benefits, but videoconferencing isn't among them. #xp
A reminder that a lot of folks need right now: Your values are what you choose to do when it's difficult, not what you say when things are fine. Make the decisions that your value statements claim you would.
If you think this is to you specifically, ask yourself why. #xp

Wow...I've shifted slightly more left than when last I took one of these and WAY more liberal. Interesting. I wonder if it's a natural progression or a response to Republican part of the last decade... My political coordinates are 33.3% Left, 77.8% Liberal https://www.idrlabs.com/political-coordinates/1/33.3/1/77.8/result.php

Not all who wander are lost.
If I'm being honest, I could use some directions...or a map...or a guide...help!
