Haircut! I can't wait for that. My wife offered but I've seen the bowl around our kids. . . so not sure I'll go that route. Hats. Lots of hats.
I'm using this as an excuse to do all those projects I never get to. Yesterday that was installing a toilet for the main bathroom remodel. Everyone stuck at home prioritizes the 2nd bathroom. This might be my fastest remodel yet, coming in under 6 months. Probably.
Otherwise, working from home like everyone, but not too bad cause Telltale was already split in multiple places so we already did alot of remote work. Mostly just hate my gaming, chill, & work spot is all the same place. But I've been trying things like different lighting, moving monitors and furniture, anything to make it feel different.
Oh, and my booze making has gotten pretty serious. I'm up to 2 cases of a cider and 5 cases of wine, and just started a pomegranite wine. Pineapple, Cocounut, Strawberry, even a banana wine, all dry, like a rose mabye? Plus, cider from fall is ready now and is too darn tempting as temperatues warm.
I took a week of vacation this week, just being at home. It's helped me notice certain things. Part of the reason I took the week off is I've been depressed lately, and not until this year did I make the connection to asthma and allergies. It turns out there's a very high prevalence of depression in people with asthma, and an even higher rate of people who don't know they're under-treated for asthma. There have been so many times when I would think to do even a simple task, but feel a sense of pre-emptive defeat, because of the pressure I felt on my chest, so I felt constricted, and would just sit there not knowing what to do, or if I did, tearing myself apart not even able to stand up and walk outside. Today I was trying to make a cookie dough and there was stuff in the way that I had to put away, and I started freaking out and tensing up, all throughout just picking up a container and putting it on the other side of the kitchen, it was killing me inside, just trying not to scream. It wasn't a difficult thing to do, I was just losing my mind over the time that would be spent on this and the next thing and all the other shit that ought to be tidied up, and feeling that constriction and just getting very upset. And apparently it's a worse allergy season for most people this year.
Well I'm trying to bake a lot of edibles at different dosages so I won't have to use my THC vaporizer as much, but in the meantime it helped me calm down along with this Bear Republic Thru the Haze IPA I've been enjoying this week. But it just feels a little messed up that I went so long without knowing that I needed a lot more treatment for asthma, and that could have helped every day at work feel like so much less of a dreadful uphill battle, and make it so things like laundry and dish washing don't become these insurmountable hurdles
Buzzfly: I dont even know what you are talking about.

Mike Lenin: It comes across as contrived that you don't know the plight of Annie. You're playing coy

Mike Lenin: you posted in the mildville gazette forum right before posting this shoutbox. I can't believe that you would make this comment AFTER reading the Gazette. Please. It's normal behavior economics to read the Gazette then post. This makes you suspect.

Buzzfly: Ya whatever. As I said vote how you want, nothing is going to change how you think. Frankly, its getting to be a waste of time.

Mike Lenin: OMG, dude, you are totally a villain and are caught!

Buzzfly: You must be really bored
May 11, 2020 20:23:50 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, I'm open minded to new ideas when they fit. Earlier I had shouted at you that I'm willing to accept that you could be a hero

Mike Lenin: boring people get bored
May 11, 2020 20:24:02 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: and definitely not sober

Buzzfly: Well that I can drink too
May 11, 2020 20:24:41 GMT -8
Mike Lenin: And yeah, for the record, tl;dr you accused me of playing the game, and to boot, to that, correctly, in identifying you as a villain. So despite it being clear that we are playing for different teams, I'm still down to share a drink with you

Buzzfly: Take another drink, you will need it when you find out youre wrong
