Once again the Satanic Temple pride pins are sold out by the time I check! Someday I'll catch one in stock...someday...

Oh, I thought it was my off-brand browser. Hmm.

An exit interview is unlikely but at least I get to go out after a full week of vacation and making a point about their pandemic procedures!

Thank you!! <3

Thank you!! It still doesn't feel real (but what has, this year) but the fact that I've almost locked down an apartment with close to twice my current living space and TWO BALCONIES and a WHIRLPOOL TUB is definitely starting to feel real!

Hello, I am never here anymore but would you be willing to burn my horrible almost-former job with the turnip? I put in my resignation on Monday, two days after the library board responded to my request that they consider the risk to staff and patrons posed by staying open to the public during a major transition which will confuse everyone and would normally result in 10x the normal interaction times with a lecture on how important free faxing is.

(I do in fact have another job lined up; it will involve working from a private office and being paid 170% of my previous salary, so fuck these guys.)

Also hopefully with no longer having to spend all my energy on being at work I can free up a little bit for more social interaction?

Yesterday morning I signed on for work and was depressed because I didn't have anything to do, and then I got fifteen emails and was depressed because I had too much to do. I've finally figured out that I'm just depressed (which isn't surprising; last week I finally hit the point of "just go out and go somewhere, you'll feel better" except...well.)

Not to mention the weather's taken a sharp turn and it's too cold to sit out on the balcony in the morning, but the sun is gone by the afternoon so it's still too cold to sit without sun. I am grumpy.

I did dye my hair purple yesterday, though, so that's a win.

That sounds like a really good idea, honestly. I'm on day three of a headache that I'm pretty sure is down to how much time I spend staring at a screen. (But. My only source of human interaction!...)

Brick Books are so difficult sometimes. I've found that building myself a nest of pillows and propping the book up on one of them works well.
