pining, hyperfixation, indie folk song 

The refrain, I'm just...
"When the doors are finally flung open, we will come running to you
And kissing's in season when the gorse is in bloom."

pining, hyperfixation, indie folk song 

Currently hyperfixating on this really sweet little song written in lockdown. Good for when you're missing human contact.

Yesterday I wrote one page. Today I wrote two. I'll shoot for three tomorrow and so on till I have a draft.

Worth noting: it's about 15 lbs. in the carrying case, so it has about 5 pounds on my cat.

Welp, I got one. It's a 2015 portable retro model that belonged to the antique shop owner's dad. It was already a quarter of its retail price, and the dude gave me a discount because my sister and I have always stopped there whenever we hang out downtown.

Considering getting a typewriter for writing because staring at a word processor on a screen is exhausting for the eyes, plus no Internet.

I don't think that making jokes about how fascists willfully misunderstand the substance and inquiry of Critical Race Studies is good, actually

Whether or not they understand CRT is beside the point, what's important is that it enables young dickheads like the ones in Turn*ng Point USA to surveil and harass any scholar that talks about race in a meaningful way (which many of them had already been doing to scholars who say anything about Palestine and/or trans studies)

I'm resuming the Egyptian course I borrowed from the library three years ago and I've found myself getting distracted by recognizing a cognate with Hebrew here and a word from a song title there. There's got to be some way to derive mnemonic value from that sort of thing.

Despite having half of Indy, all of Ohio, and most of New York between us and Sleepy Hollow, they have a Headless Horseman festival every October and now I'll get to set up for events, drive the tractor on the haunted hayride, and play a spooky character in a corn maze. My childhood dreams are coming true.

Just got an event staff job at a historical farm/outdoor history museum I used to go to all the time as a kid

A family friend's granddaughter needs ten participants in a survey for her government class. The survey asks what is the purpose of government. The kid's family is pretty moderately conservative. Should I sneak quotes from The State and Revolution into my response?

if you haven't seen BDG's analysis of Tony Hawk's usage of a UN banned - you know what you need to watch it

I wrote a chapter of a novel based on a dream and I guess I wanna be a writer now.

Gary's yelling at me to go upstairs and give him scritches before bed. Old man's got a routine!

@frustratedantiquarian Hahaha I've always found that the best way to find a mistake is to press "Submit" :P

Fingers crossed!
