Hey look, it is a business casual hermit. Well, as close as I get... I hate dress codes so much. I hope this is good enough.

New job starts in a few hours. I wish I had managed to sleep last night. This will be interesting.

Okay, my timeline is entirely hand washing instructions with song lyrics that don't fit. I just can't. I'm out.


I started a new character and got past the first mini boss on my first try! I actually deflected!

12yo (while looking for the next boss in Shadow of the Colossus): Where am I?
8yo: West Virginia (For some reason they think a reference to a John Denver song is very funny)

Thinking about switching my avatar, but I don't know what to change it to...


The Let's Play is by PlayFrame, which is a very lovely YouTube channel. Dan is a really lovely person. He isn't known for being very good at games though. Instead he is a much more average player who works in the game industry and has smart things to say about games while he plays.

He is also doing SIGNIFICANTLY better at the game then I was on my first try. That doesn't fill me with confidence.

This seems to be how I react to every From game. I try, fail, try, fail, get frustrated, quit and then repeat. So far that cycle had eventually resulted in success for every game except this one

So, I bought Sekiro immediately after it was released, and played it heavily for a few days. Then I got to a boss that just kicked my ass repeatedly and I gave up.

I finally decided that I'm not going to try again, so it is okay to watch a Let's Play of it. I have so far seen about half of the part I had already played, so nothing has been spoiled.

The problem is that now I kinda want to try again! Ugh. This is a problem.

I'm supposed to wear "business casual" tomorrow... Ugh.

Restless Leg Syndrome but everything from the neck down...

I really like the look of some septum piercing jewelry that is a bit thicker so I am now wearing one that is just a bit thicker to try to stretch... It doesn't hurt much but it has kinda just ached for days.

My gf works at a skilled nursing facility that has had an illness scare and is limiting visits and what not. It is probably just people being paranoid about COVID-19, but also, ugh.

My throat is feeling swollen, and I feel tired and achey... That is usually means I'm getting sick.

So, that's good.

I should find something reasonably healthy to eat and I should go to the gym... I'm not sure either of those are going to happen tonight though.

Whomever invented the q-tip should win the Nobel Peace Prize. For all the years. Retroactively, and going forward.

In other news my ear no longer itches.
