can you believe it’s been another week?
this week i allow a goof-based decision-making matrix push me ever-closer to the source.
apart from that mostly reading and thinking, with contained adventures. i’m b story.
i am wet, yet again, with washing machine juice. on Sunday the machine stopped
working. we know why, it’s had a hard time draining because i’ve not been
careful with checking my pockets for coins and little copper tom nook
faces. lying on the floor, operating tools, peeping through a tiny hole, drenched with washing machine juice, feeling like i’m on the the crystal maze. an unfortunate
discovery about my washing machine tube: the piece of hard plastic that connects
it to the filter is the exact diameter of a ten pence coin. i cannot extricate
the ten pence coin from the tube.
kj had a little baby. looks very friendly. congratulations to all.
i was wrong. it was a kennedy half-dollar. happy anniversary, jack! sorry about the cia, the dallas police force and the anti-castro cubans.

nearly lost all my time to installing linux and android on all my devices and deleting all my big tech stuff accounts again. pulled myself out of the nosedive at the last minute and bought a new iphone on credit to try and make it feel like it’s not an option. lost at least 12 hours of bento work to that waste of time
