I'm sick of the constant trivial negativity from the petty complaints thread, it's time for some trivial positivity.

My audiobook finished playing at the exact moment I pulled into my parking space at work this morning!

    I got out of bed.

    Though I guess this could work on either thread.

    I moved into a new apartment a couple of weeks ago, but my former roommate didn’t move out until yesterday when they got on a plane and left for the Midwest. They said that they left some food in the fridge at the old place, which I could access until yesterday, and that I should take it. I figured on some leftovers or whatever.

    They left an unopened 1.5lb pack of bacon in the fridge and in the freezer there were boxes of stuff from Omaha Steaks (her dad always sent her Omaha Steaks for Christmas): a box of burgers, one of chicken breasts, one of pork chops, some hash browns, and an apple tart. There was also half a big bag of gyoza in the freezer, too.

    I got a new credit card that gives 2% cash back on everything

    This is better than my old credit card that gives 1% cash back

    Huzzah, I'm rich!

    I was chopping some stuff and I slipped and dropped the knife and instinctively reached out to catch it

    "no, you dummy, is sharp!" I thought to myself, so I turned my full-on grab into a kind of pinch and grabbed it by the flat of the blade and then did a little flippy and grabbed it by the handle

    I was like "fuck yeah I wish someone had been here to see that."

    I shot the exact middle of a target with bow and arrow last night, which I haven't done in almost a year

    It's a minor victory because it was at six or seven meters, rather than the typical range of 20

    When I was working as a counselor for summer camp one year, they took us teens to the site to show us how everything works so we could help the kids if they needed it. I took their heaviest bow (probably a 65 lb draw) and fired at the target from around 20m and hit the bullseye.

    I've never touched a bow since, as my success rate cannot go any higher.

    I did a one armed lockoff on the pullup bar and for the first time ever I actually could pull myself up on one arm from hanging at 120 degrees to about 90 degrees with no assistance

    It feels really tendon destroyingly hard but it is one step closer to one armed pullups...

    She still lives rent free in your brain though, doesn't she?
    Wake up in cold sweats, late at night, screaming "Wilbur you utter bastard" into the darkness?
    Night paralysis that won't go away until you whisper "Stell, you deserve better"?
    It's okay, you'll get through this.

    Small triumph: got my covid booster over the weekend. Still haven't been getting 5g reception, or magnetic powers and I don't register as a Blue Tooth device to sync with my PC.
    If Bill Gates doesn't start taking over my brain soon, I'm really going to wonder what the point is.

    Can't get much more inconsequential than hard carrying a league game or two.

    I started a diet on the 3rd of this year and have lost 15.3 pounds.

    Now, before anyone goes and thinks this is some huge accomplishment, my starting point was 332, and I used the power of Drugs to get here, so it's not like I don't have a long way to go, yet.

    Instead of kicking them, maybe you should get a squirt bottle and fill it with a 1:1 vinegar dilution. It works for dogs, I am confident it will work for kids.

    Once I was getting a mug out of the cupboard which snagged another and pulled it along with it. I managed to put my mug back on the shelf and catch the other before it hit the counter.

    Then again I have in the past dropped my flannel in the shower when washing my face and in my attempt to catch it punch myself directly in the nads.

    I went to mail my electric bill today, right near the pick-up time for that particular box. I wasn't sure if I made it in time, but when I got home, just a few minutes later I looked out the window and saw the mail truck pull up and get it. Perfect timing, yay!
