Indulgence, Sadness, and Nonsense

Tim Brooke-Taylor, one of the three Goodies and an essential part of my childhood, has succumbed to Covid-19. I can only hope that his passing was free of suffering.

So many people are losing friends and family and I'm here mourning a man I've never met. Similar things are happening all over the internet. People we've only known in memes are passing on and the news is being attached to those memes.

There's mass graves in New York, the supply chain is disintegrating, and there's a bloke saying that civilisation as we know it could collapse by 2050. Cheerful.

We're keeping contact at a minimum, and doctors are sending prescriptions to pharmacies to keep the virus spreading via the patient vector.

Of course I over-indulged on the carbs and I still have too many to deal with now, so of course my fingers are puffy sausages and of course I expect non-plague related breathing issues. Therefore, of course, I shall be attempting to ration my allotment of sinful treats to a more rational and diet-friendly amount.

Of course, I failed at that this morning because tasty treats on my desktop cannot easily be ignored by this chronic sweet-tooth.

Such is life...

If I can get today's story done, I might have a chance at editing that buffer episode that's overdue. Part of me wants to crawl back into bed and wake up when the insanity is over.

If I wanna do that, I should at minimum get you a story fabricated so you can make it through your day.

That's my schedule shot...

This morrow, early in the morning, both my Beloved and Mayhem had to scoot towards their workday. I had to drive Mayhem to the train station because Beloved lacked the time because Spring Carnival steals their days from now until just past November.

Mayhem doesn't think he needs to learn to drive -__-

It's easier now than it was a mere few decades ago. Like, you can get food delivered and such, but... living independently without a car? You gotta get

Urgh

Much though I love the concept of Fortnite, this dying compy couldn't quite handle it and the game kept crashing. So I gave up on it.

Which meant that Beloved has been playing exclusively with their brother.

Which left me feeling out in the cold.

Which means that my depression has come back to fight with me.

FUN.

In the sarcastic sense of course.

Hope has arisen in the form of a patch which might mean that I can play too.

Stuff and Nonse

Urgledy burgledy things are going gonzo. I neglected to mention that our fridge is actually deceased. It wasn't the seals. We need a new fridge.

And to pay for it, Beloved is using an installment plan of $50 per fortnight for eighteen months.

Mayhem really wants to spend some free fritter money on art supplies, and I know just the dollar shop to get the most value out of his cash.

BUT we have to wait for the fridge, which is arriving

Very much broke again

(Argh) Christmas gift shopping happened. It's a very cheap year, this year. For limited definitions of "cheap". Beloved secured Mayhem's gift at quite some expense, and since we have an "equal worth" policy going on, Chaos may yet have some catching up to do.

We might not be able to do that, this year. Ah well.

And, as previously noted in this blog, all the adults are getting artisinal herb products in a pretty little gift basket, this year. I feel kind

The evolution of girl gamers

Boy gamers are so self-centered they act as though women haven’t been playing video games for decades, and then act horrified when the female gamers who have always been there actually become visible and vocal about the rampant misogyny that has infected the gaming world. 

Like seriously, how entitled do you have to be that women saying “it sure would be nice if I wasn’t treated like shit while enjoying the

Police Killing of Unarmed Native American Continues To Receive Little Media Attention

The tragic case of Corey Kanosh, 35, has received very little media attention, in spite of the growing outrage over police shootings of unarmed, innocent citizens. In Corey’s case, we are not dealing with an African American man shot by white cops, but an unarmed Native American man who was suspected of crimes that he was later proven innocent of, who was given only seconds before police opened

Ferguson is everyday, and it seems like everyday we’re given a new reason to fight. Stay committed, stay strong, and, most of all, stay woke. #farfromover

I have literally not heard a single peep about Ferguson since November 24th from anywhere other than tumblr, twitter, and friends on Facebook. Social media is the only way the majority of people are going to hear anything, and especially without the racist spin from the mainstream news. The importance of this can’

Now, after claiming the police had been harassing and intimidating him after he went public with the footage, Kevin Moore and two members of Cop Watch, have been arrested tonight.

Moore said on Saturday that he is the man who filmed the

This is ginger nuts! Natural redhead banned from school for having hair that's too bright

stfueverything:

What kind of fuckery is this?

I guess red hair isn’t natural. For some reason.

I call for all gingers to swarm that school and keep asking all the staff about why their hair is unnatural.
