Re: Insomnia

Well, now it's stopped being soothing, because she's written a book written in 1878 with a male narrator and so there's a lot of instinctively protecting delicate young women and going on and on about their beauty and fragility, and I just want to grab the dude by the throat and scream OH MY GOD THE...

I enjoyed the first three episodes of Perry Mason. Warning, the first episode leads with a very graphic dead baby!
Augh! Augh! Why???????

Thank you for the warning!

On a more soporific note, I've discovered Phoebe Reads a Mystery, which is exactly what it says on the tin, a woman with a lovely voice reading a chapter or two of an old mystery novel every night.

I've had great success getting to sleep with the TNG recap episodes of the Sleep With Me podcast -- but I've listened to them all, and I don't like the other ones as well.

Trying to watch season 41 (Westerly, RI house) but it's making me RAGE. They bought a classic 40s ranch house -- a big-ass one, too, 2200 sq ft! -- and then they're gutting it and putting on a whole second story with a gambrel roof.

Re: The Enemy of My Enemy

I think all the recent garment-rending over JK Rowling is silly (she's been openly transphobic for years so this isn't news; also, read another book series for the love of God) but I am surprised at how she keeps doubling down on it. Like I'm sure she's dealt with a million online kerfuffles already...

Re: Words I Happen to Dislike

"Narc" as shorthand for "narcissist." My favorite parenting Facebook group has a subgroup for single parents, and it took me wayyyyy too long to realize when people complained about their "narc exes" that they didn't mean they'd been married to tattletales.

I bought carpet at Lowe's a couple months ago even though we weren't ready to replace our upstairs carpet right then, because it was the exact color/kind I wanted on an amazing closeout deal. Unfortunately, now that I have the upstairs mostly cleaned out with furniture removed, I'm having a hard tim...

My impression, gleaned from quality sources like "people shitposting on Twitter about other people shitposting on Reddit" was that he was on an all-meat diet and addicted to benzos and his daughter sent him to a rehab in Russia where they took him off the drugs cold turkey and he went into a coma.

Re: Random covid-19 observations

I just bought Mountain Dew Zero for the first time last week (I guess that explains where it all went -- diverted up north to the land of the Lutherans) and did not enjoy it. Every sip initially tastes like regular Dew but then a second later tastes like diet Dew. It's schizophrenic soda, I tell you!

Oh my God, ginger Coke sounds sooooo good.

I actually really love the lime Diet Coke, even though it's true that it tastes nothing like putting a lime in a Diet Coke. It's a weird fakey taste, but one I can't get enough of.

I've been watching a bunch of shows on YouTube with British survivalist Ray Mears. Last night I saw one called "the American Prairie" and got all excited because that's where I grew up and spent every day outside pretending to be Laura Ingalls. Anyway, I play the video and he's in the fucking Rocky ...

Re: Orange is the new President

Trump not responding to Putin's bounties on American soldiers. Is this what finally sinks the orange ship? Will Trumpers find a way to fanwank it away? Or is it serious enough to lose him his core base but some other disaster is going to come along to distract everyone before that can happen?
