We were fortunate to have Bob over today, who stayed late into the evening to finish the humidifier install to our downstairs furnace. With the cold weather kicking in and the air getting dryer, there was a concern that the new first floor flooring would suffer for it.
Liz was excited to receive this in the mail, today. For all her searching (she’s been on the lookuut for years for hardware that matches our house)… she’d never encountered window pulls (aka sash lifts) before.
Well, this was going to be a “this daily blog is starting to feel like a weekly blog” post. But as I was looking back over things, I guess I already did that… back in August.
Ok, so I lied previously. While I haven’t really cared for the free games that come with Stadia Pro, I’ve put in a bit more time into Destiny 2.
I don’t often enjoy watching how-to videos, or watching people make things. There’s a whole host of this type of content, particularly on Instagram, and it tends to stress me out more than it inspires. I tend to find them sources of frustration and anxiety.
It’s a challenge, updating this blog when I really don’t leave the house all that much. I used to take more photos when I was walking to/from the train, and well… we really don’t do that anymore.
There’s a distinct feeling of nostalgia I feel, listening to this album again. It’s also fitting that the days are shorter, and dusk arrives a little faster – as this album makes me think a lot about late fall.
“[…] in 2011 [McDonald’s] had to abandon the idea of using celery root in one of its food items because to offer the item, McDonald’s would have had to buy all of the world’s celery root supply, and there still would not have been enough celery to meet the projected demand. A frequent problem for the restaurant chain that annually serves 1/27th of all restaurant food consumed in the world, and caters to about 1 percent of the world’s population on any given day.”
This I think is hilarious. My aim, when going about upgrading my computer setup, was to clear up space on my desk. I’ve done that in some ways, but at the expense of a rat’s nest of wires.
This week, I’ve been revisiting Man Man a lot during work. Specifically, their album “Life Fantastic.”
Continuing my habit of looking back to bands in my library that I haven’t listened to in a long while, the moment I heard Knuckle Down again I was sucked back in.
“I know it’s because I’ve been fooled again
by the selfish, unruly man who lives in me
and believes he deserves only safety
I was upstairs working on work work today (catching up a bit from the week), but she spent her time in the basement doing a ton of stuff: clearing away debris, reorganizing, and also building these bad boys. Which involved some angled cuts and a bit of table saw work.
“I call today a disaster
She calls it December the third
Call it what you will
I’m heartbroken still
Words are just words”
For someone who has a hard time justifying more than $30 for a video game, I really got a lot of things in a short span of time. But I feel like the WFH thing is going to continue for at least another 9-12 months. And I’m feeling strongly that I may prefer to continue working remote if I can.
