    i carefully maintain the illusion in my brain that i am not dreadfully, horribly bored with my job so i won't quit, because it pays quite well and has great benefits and a pension

    but it's communications. this new job is even more communicationsy. i'm advising people on strategic communications for a huge departmental shift.

    it's so fucking boring i can barely bring myself to put my fingers on the keyboard. but now at least there are like, national media attention stakes, and high up government officials who'll be looking at what i'm doing with a critical eye

    that will motivate me somewhat, right

    bet you sent them to school instead of into the mines, like fools

    Financially I can only do it because I'm a spoiled little lazyboy

    I wouldn't mind getting away from it all in some tiny little apartment in some podunk town honestly. A cousin of mine lives in the middle of nowhere in New Mexico and I'm thinking of just showing up with a suitcase

    You can legit buy a decent house for under 100k.

    Was looking around for something to watch, and found this 80s classic action film everyone knows and loves.

    71x5tyyxJqL._RI_.jpg

    I would watch it, but it’s terribly transferred and badly dubbed Italian schlock, so I bailed in 10 minutes. I was really hoping to find a diamond in the rough, but alas.

    @Jacobkosh how's your replay of The Witcher 1 going

    I gave up after 2 hours and I'm just gonna watch this Lorethrough by Proper Bird so I can remind myself of all the big characters/decisions so that I can then do the same thing in The Witcher 2

    I can't stop laughing at this post every time I scroll past it.

    Do you seriously think I'd explain my master-stroke if there remained the slightest chance of you affecting its outcome?

    I did it thirty-five fortnights ago.

    I tried to do a replay too after watching the show.

    I got past the first town/area and then I just... couldn't do it anymore.

    I installed the second one but I haven't actually played it yet.

    Hi I know it's extremely weird that we have a designated bed for unmarried women in my family ranch house BUT can I just say that that bed is: extremely fucking comfy, the comfiest bed, I'm never getting married

    My mother designates separate beds for my wife and me when we visit on account of us being unmarried (according to her).


    Completely unrelatedly, my wife hasn't accompanied me on many visits since we got married.

    so i know facebook ads have been revealing the obvious fact that facebook spies on you but earlier today i was just thinking about doing audible again and listening to books at work

    just thinking it

    in my brain only. not a word out loud, did not visit a website or anything

    and now i'm getting tons of audible ads
    Which would make you feel better, to find out Facebook can read your mind or that Facebook can plant thoughts into your head

    Paprika is very good!

    so I hear


    often with things I hear are very good I just register it and put it on some mental list then long after I hear something from the soundtrack and go oh! and actually watch it

    bojack horseman, for example

    EDIT: but also because of Every Frame a Painting, which is a youtube channel I miss more than some dead family members
