Incoherent rant about the disconnect between what programmers expect us to do and what we actually do
Sometimes I HATE COMPUTERS
HOW DO I DO THE THING I DID YEARS BEFORE WHICH I WANT TO DO AGAIN BUT SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT
I TRIED TO DO IT BUT IT DID IT WRONG AND NOW THERE'S A WRONG THING THERE THAT I CAN'T DELETE, HOW DO I DELETE IT
MAKE SOME DAMN SENSE
Of probable interest to people here, an animated short about a four-armed dragon cook. (cw: plot-relevant injury; nothing bloody but definitely made me wince, so it's at least worth knowing about)
I don't rate things, or rank them. I don't think of one thing as specifically, objectively better than another, or think of a collection of things as a hierarchy from 10, best, to 0, worst, or whatever.
Some things are good and I like them, some things are not so good and I don't like them. It's all a ball of wibbly-wobbly, goody-baddy stuff.
Had jury duty this morning... (ChickFilA mention in paragraph 5)
Went to bed a lot earlier than usual so I could get up extra extra early. Drove downtown. Went into the jury building, where I had to take off my shoes and surrender the bladed tools in my backpack I forgot about. It was like being at an airport, except not as fun!
Went downstairs. Stood in line to check in. Couldn't, because I hadn't registered. Had to stand in another line to register. It was like being at a furry con, except WAAAAY not as fun!
Sat in a jury assembly room. Waited for them to call my juror number range. Sat there for an hour... two hours... three hours, four hours... but I wasn't goin' through any mean nasty ugly things, unless you count the fact that I couldn't get a cell phone signal down there so I couldn't read birdsite or telegram. I was BORED!
Finally a woman came in and told us we wouldn't be needed for jury service that day and let us go. So I drove to Goode Company Seafood for a delicious fishous lunch! And it was just after 11, so I was one of the first customers there.
After lunch I went to a nearby CVS to get a new cord for my new phone. Unfortunately this involved driving past a Chick-Fil-A at lunch hour. Cars lined up out onto the street, caring more about getting their anti-gay sandwiches than letting actual traffic flow! Difficult to get past, but I finally made it.
Then I drove home and napped.
Ah yes, the classic Gumby short when Pokey merged with Ilia and V'Ger.
