Just generally neutral person generally vibin. An optimistic cynic and plagued with cognitive dissonance.

Dan Becoming older is interesting. I just realised that I haven't had a bath in nearly 10 years, just showers. Haven't had a cup of tea in 5 years either, mostly just water or juices. It's like I've quit things but instead of making a point to stop, you just kinda forget to do it for a decade
😃💬 Javier I just discovered after many years (around 20) of not having flan, how much I enjoy the thing. Now I'm having at least one every week.
Dan Just accidentally slept for 13-14 hours and now my brain feels like it has pins and needles.
Dan Up at 1am on the day I was finally planning to go on a walk with my camera and do some photography again.. Feeling somewhat demotivated to keep trying as it's like I'm self-sabotaging. But hey, if you're not ready for something, then you're just not ready I suppose. Even if being 'ready' is just being in the mood.
Dan There's probably a market for an app that detects what song you're singing and lines up the instrumental/backing vocals along with you. Autocorrect-oke would be pretty fun to vibe with when you get random songs stuck in your head throughout the day
Dan Watched Ford v Ferrari again last night. I absolutely loved it even though it hasn't been too long since the first time!
Dan Hand update; Everything is back to normal except lateral movement (picking mouse up with thumb and pinky etc) still kinda hurts, and something a bit worrying is that I'm no longer double jointed in that pinky... If I place both hands on the table and lift my pinkies, both pinkies get off the table but the injured knuckle doesn't articulate much at all. I wonder if that'll improve of if its locked in.
Dan I know rss is dying, but does anyone know which news agencies and whatnot still support it? Don't suppose there's an 'awesome rss collection' floating around
✨ Jacoby alltop.com was an interesting site that gathered a bunch of them. It seems they are still updating this.
Dan I keep catching myself saying thanks to my subconscious.. As a joke I started thanking it as though it was an entirely separate entity and idk, it just feels kinda wholesome to appreciate when you're about to leave but suddenly remember your keys/wallet, or when you manage to "guess" the password to an old account with 0 confidence. What started as a joke has evolved into me asking myself which drink to buy in the shops and I might be alright with this.
Dan I was falling into a nap earlier and had a Mitch Hedberg moment. I thought of something cool for a story I'm writing which solved a few dead-ends and seemed neat, but I was also about to fall asleep so I was forced to convince myself that what I thought of was garbage. Oh the lengths we'll go to just to stay comfortable...
Dan I'm really tempted to make a wierd language for my worldbuilding thing. I can't stop thinking about the idea of a language that is half spoken and half signlanguage. Talking to someone and giving them context or other only mildly relevant information with your hands while vocalizing the important parts... Time to figure out how to do conlangs I guess haha
✨ Jacoby Super into this. I had the idea of an "aural culture" pop into my head for a campaign I cam creating and that phrase stuck with me. What would it mean for a culture to be known for its listening skills?
😃💬 Javier I was musing on that very thing this weekend. What is the optimum synonyms to non-synonyms word ratio for a new language? Does the brain likes synonyms or find them to be a hassle? Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo.
