Pointless Ramblings for Sunday, August 14

Pointless Ramblings for Sunday, August 14

Don't read too much into the cow. I just like the picture. First of all, I want to say I bought an 18-pack of Fairlife chocolate protein shakes on sale a while ago. I've been having one a day for a little over a week, and my fingernails are amazingly strong. I...

About the Beto O’Rourke Drama

Guess there's a moratorium on my moratorium to blog about political stuff. But you know who doesn't have a single pearl to clutch? Beto O'Rourke. That viral footage of him shutting down the Greg...

Hope and First World Despair

Today I'm kind of a mixed bag of hope and first-world despair. My disability check posted this morning. (It was Patreon, a much-needed but also much smaller source of income, that posted on Monday.)...

What Has Two Thumbs?

I had an appointment to see my oncologist this morning. A 6:45 am arrival for a 7:00 am appointment . Followed by labs. Followed by a Covid booster. The cancer center was mostly quiet. My doctor mentioned the good results from my MRI, and then we got down to business....

Let It Be

I've been feeling off-kilter for a little bit. What else is new, right? Let it be. I talked with Mom about more construction stuff yesterday and my head is a jumble of information. The plans haven't changed a whole lot, but how I have to think about them has. I don't...

My Accessible Shower

The accessible shower is in! If you get updates on GoFundMe, you likely already know this. But. I. Am. So. Excited. I had to post about it again. The framing is---as far as I can tell from the pictures Mom sent---complete for the rest of the living space too. I know...

What the WHAT?!

Apparently blogging about ice cream, ordering ice cream, and breaking my reply moratorium to talk ice cream with @fschmnn on Twitter makes the YouTube algorithm think it knows me. (OK, maybe it does.) Just got served this very punny scoop. https://youtu.be/U9lqpCw9f14...
