ffs, stop using staycation to describe holidaying in your own country....for many of this this is called simply "a holiday" or "vacation" (if you're North American).

Painter has told us he'd come on 3 different occasions, yet again didn't turn up, when I called him he hung up on me after hearing my voice and now his phone goes to answer machine.

Since when did getting a room painted turn into dating?

Well I sure do regret falling down those stairs. 😫

May you find someone who pulls their socks the right way round at laundry time. πŸ™

seriously though...is it ok to headbang at your desk to Panic! At The Disco?
Asking for a friend.

I'm that friend.

For me it would be a coffee shop with fresh espressos and baked food made there on the premises every morning.

What is your post-high-tech main income/profession?

Back in the GPs to get my other trigger finger done. 😷

The older lady continued on:

Anyone claiming trump isn't racist at this point is just a (not so) closet white supremacist willfully sticking their fingers in their ears.

An excerpt from a book I'm working on:

"Remember that time we had to stay indoors for 3 months?" she said around a mouth full of scone.

"Do I! I went so bonkers I nearly fingered Mrs Accomb."

"You did whatβ€½"

"You know, for that series of small burglaries in the village."

Whoever decided the switch lite should have it's charging port on the bottom, when it no longer needs to fit in a cradle, never tried having a young child play with one plugged in while charging.

Reminder that sodium batteries exist. Yes, salt batteries are a thing and they've been around for quite a while. Research into them started at the same time as lithium batteries in the 1970s and 1980s.

And salt batteries are *at least* as efficient as lithium ones while being cheaper to create and far less damaging to the environment and our finite resources due to the abundance of sodium in the world.

We could be using these today, but capitalism is in the way.

Unpopular opinion: I enjoyed both Voyager and Enterprise, they were good entertainment and have their places in Trek lore with some gear characters played by good actors - though I think both would have been better without Berman. But the same can be said of all Trek tbh.

Had to go to GPs for the first time in 4 months so I could get an injection in my hand so it's not in agony. And I get to go back in 2 weeks to do the other one.
