Bad social media interaction - someone was upset about the way I phrased a question, I responded pettily, apologized for that, after which they raked me over the coals some more.

Regardless of wrong and right, I'd love to have the kind of brain that doesn't get stuck in the proverbial garbage disposal about this sort of thing.

Body image stuff 

also I think my hairline is moving and HEY, I WAS USING THAT

It was a fun thing to do, too! I'm not used to being in a room full of people who don't mind doing this kind of grunt work that just needs doing.

Some of it is definitely that I'm much fatter than I used to be. But does that mean I should deal with my fatphobia, or should I strive to change my body to match my self-image anyway? If that's even possible.

Some of it is probably Gender Stuff, and some of it might just be posture. Who the hell knows.

Body image stuff 

Just saw some pictures of me at a thing I helped out with today and I don't.... It's been years since I saw a candid photo of me that I *liked*. Or any full-body picture, really. Trying to figure what the bits are I don't like, and what they should be.

Calendula freak show on my balcony: The seeds in the bag were from a seed-proof variety, but now, in the 2nd year, many of the plants produce either no or very few seeds. Instead, they grow a 2nd layer of deformed flowers on top of the first ones. / Ringelblumen-Freakshow auf meinem Balkon: Jetzt, im 2. Jahr, produzieren viele der "samenfesten" Pflanzen anstelle neuer Samen lieber deformierte sekundäre Blüten, die aus den verblühten ersten Blüten hervorschießen. 🧐 @plants

A spaceship landed, and an alien emerged.
"Greetings."
"First contact!" someone shouted.
"Seventh contact," the alien said. "Previously, you have called us gods, tried to fight us, or tried to have sex with us."
"What do you expect now?"
"We don't know. You keep surprising us."

Sad news: I've figured out how to remote desktop into work from my sofa laptop.

I am the very model of a counterrevolutionary.

I feel like I should do the math to figure out how much heating capacity the reno would save the CA, and how much kWh all affected tenants would (ballpark) save, but I'm not sure where to begin.

At a condo association meeting tonight I learned that the roof renovation has been getting postponed for literal decades.

As a top floor tenant, I was not thrilled. I may have made some disgruntled remarks.

We've got 16 out of 80 addresses that would benefit from it directly, but because there aren't any leaks It's Totally Fine Guys. Christ.

I never know if "People also ask" is actual queries people searched for or generated some other way, but it's real classy either way.

I suppose the first high-ish profile show (as far as I know?) with an actor coming out as trans should be very clear and explicit about the whole thing. Feel like they did a great job at the approach they chose, anyway.

The new Umbrella Academy season is working well for me. I'd kind of hoped they'd handle Elliot Page's transition in a weirder way but this is fine and pleasantly woven into last season's story.

Taking the rest of the day off from work because my wrist hurts. Should probably talk to a physical therapist some time, huh.

I know the specific trigger for this case (electric sander, two days ago) but this has been an issue for eight years and I should get off my ass.

Oh look, a new album from the 2006 techno-pop one hit wonder Cascada, wonder what they're up t-oh

It's getting really old that these apps can't distinguish between different bands with the same name.

publishing all my exploitable code samples to github for copilot to pick up

Update: I borrowed those spoons from future me. Hi, future me here.

All of the weekly maintenance stuff is on hold right now except for the three plants I watered this morning because they looked extremely sad. Sorry, plants, baba needs home renovation.
