I'm going to the picnic and I'm taking

- All my worldly possessions in the back of my car
- The dog
- A sunny, adventurous disposition

I'm excited and everything is going to be fine (I'm properly fucking panicking) hooray for adventure and change and new things (oh shit I don't belong anywhere what am I going to do). Get your shit together kid we sail at first light!

This is not my first rodeo by far. I know things will work out. Never seems to get any less spooky though. Life huh :-/

Me: 1, spark plug: nil.
That was an adventure. The engine thread is absolutely cactus. Panic ensued. With silicone grease, a ratchet and a very loud prayer, I got the new one in. I daresay that's the last set of plugs the old battle axe is getting.

Tonight I decided to finally remap some particularly irritating key positions on my laptop. Best idea ever.

Then I felt irritated that the keys didn't say what they do, and decided to swap them around.

This was a mistake.

An hour later I'm ready to smash the laptop and those little white 2 part clip things have risen to the top of my list of most annoying things in the known universe.

I am yet to do any actual work.

Is anyone available for some remote part-time work (sysadmin)

A relative of mine is running a small company and needs someone to help them do some work managing a few cloud instances (setting up VM's, installing software), as well as managing their Office 365 service.

The amount of work is a few hours per week, but they want the person to be able to answer quickly (within a few hours) within work hours (Singapore time, UTC+8).

If anyone is interested, please let me know and I'll forward the contact information.

A Man Said to the Universe
By Stephen Crane

A man said to the universe:
“Sir, I exist!”
“However,” replied the universe,
“The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation.”

In the Desert
By Stephen Crane

In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said, “Is it good, friend?”
“It is bitter—bitter,” he answered;

“But I like it
“Because it is bitter,
“And because it is my heart.”

I finally completed my extraordinarily boring task of the day, preparing for a uni course and all the forced academic integrity quizzes and cheery infographics. I have already eaten a pizza today, in fact, I have arguably eaten too many pizzas lately. I'm not particularly hungry, but I want pizza nonetheless. There is also food in the cupboards. I still want pizza. I'm going to spend the evening watching vera and playing my game. I don't NEED pizza, but if I don't get one I'll wish I had later.
