Enduring philosophies and favorite quotes

most of the great triumphs and tragedies of history are caused, not by people being fundamentally good or fundamentally bad, but by people being fundamentally people.


Playlist pieces

Even the best fall down sometimes, even the wrong words seem to rhyme.. out of the doubt that fills my mind, i somehow find: you and i collide.


There was pain, sunny days, and rain.; I knew you’d feel the same things…

So many all the things

SO MANY ALL the things. Podcasts, library books, books on my shelves, streaming audio, friends’ content, news programs, stories, educational programs, ETC.

Too many all the things. I cannot all the things.

Aaaargh. I’m looking at renewing my passport and I find myself physically uncomfortable and resistant to the idea of putting my old/current passport in the mail — even if they give it back.

How can you not know songs from Lion King?

How can you not know Disney songs / watched Disney films in general?

How can you never have eaten nor conceived / heard of chocolate chip pancakes?

How are we going to get past these?

… You don’t know ABBA songs either?

… Dani was shipped away without my consent. I don’t know where he is except that it’s a place called a “depot”. They say they’re taking care of him and he’ll be all better when I see him again. But I can’t think of seeing him again until at least the first week of September. I’m not going to yell. I’m not going to cry.
I might cry.

Complaints today:

slated in molehills at 3:40 pm
  • Tea (the kind you don’t order on a menu but is served in a little pot with Chinese tea cups) at a Chinese restaurant should not cost $6.40 per person.
  • Outlook and svchost.exe cost me half an hour of my life this morning.
  • Thesixtyone music no longer plays at my workplace. This item is upsetting me the most.

GRUB loader failed AND USB ports all dead

Logos, I am not pleased. If you would write me a letter or send me an email with your grievances, then I could address them and we could live in harmony, rather than you pulling these ridiculous temper tantrums without warning and seemingly no cause, and then I have to trial and error everything to fix and don’t even know to begin with what set you off. Be reasonable!

Universe ate my productivity

slated in moments, molehills at 4:02 pm

Interesting week. ..“interesting” used liberally, but not sarcastically. Mostly really good, some a bit weird or frustrating.. Last night went home after work, having postponed an appointment and skipped a great happy hour event, to work on a project I was given (really last minute, R!) that really needed and deserved polishing before going to printer. Get home late from work, several unusual interruptions, and Illustrator balking at simple 3D rendering even though Logos has more memory than Windows knows what to do with. But I’m trying to chug through, though the going is slow, and I’m feeling frustrated mostly because I know others are waiting on me since this thing goes to print in morning.. So, since the universe decides it would be so very helpful or something, the power goes out all of a sudden. No storm, nothing. All the lights are out, the neighborhood is completely dark.. It’s kind of funny, and mostly ridiculous. The past few weeks there have been powerful storms and coworkers have all been telling me how they were without power for a while.. but it never hurt our neighborhood. Power never went out for more than a blink, just once.. But now, on a clear, beautiful night when I actually need to be up and using my computer and also need to be taking a shower at some point later that night (though this was prolly around 1am already, I spose..) the power goes ::poof:: and doesn’t come back. … Oy.
