TIL not to eat breath mints with actual menthol if you are wearing a mask. My eyes don’t like menthol at all.

I bought the new Toad The Wet Sprocket album on release day and haven’t listened to it yet. This has literally never happened before. I realize I was a teenager at the time but I listened to Dulcenia four times in the first 24 hours after it was released.

Me and my four boxes of unused field notes notebooks are offended.

I love these huge dice. When you roll a four on that six sided die, you KNOW you rolled a four. There are no questions left. I bought these so that my kids would stop crowding around the dice bowl to see smaller dice, but I they are rapidly becoming my favorites. :dnd: 🎲

Being sick sucks, but feeling better after being sick is pretty great!

Boring 

HOT TAKE:
The 𝗖𝗿𝘆 𝗖𝗿𝘆 𝗖𝗿𝘆 cover of 𝘍𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘖𝘯 𝘔𝘦 is not as good as the 𝗥.𝗘.𝗠. original, but it's still pretty darn good.

The 𝗗𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗵 𝗖𝗮𝗯 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗖𝘂𝘁𝗶𝗲 cover is not as good as the 𝗖𝗿𝘆 𝗖𝗿𝘆 𝗖𝗿𝘆 cover, but it's still pretty good.

There.

Now you know my thoughts on various versions of Fall On Me.

Hey fun fact: being sick can send your blood sugar high. Because being sick isn't bad enough by itself. Sigh.

I've been playing Axiom Verge 2, (not just listening to the soundtrack) and it's pretty good! It does the Metroidvania thing where sometimes I feel like a super genius when I figure out a puzzle, and sometimes i feel like an idiot walking around the map over and over again, trying to figure out what to do next. But overall I'm in enjoying it. The highs are higher than the lows are low.

Sometimes caffeine makes you feel awake enough to do what needs done in a day. somedays, like today, it just makes you tired faster.

We were talking about the whole “sharpen the saw so that you can cut down trees more efficiently” thing. My kids decided to find other ways to avoid the effort:
- buy a new saw
- wait for a sinkhole to form under the tree
- shoot the tree with automatic weapons
- shoot the tree with a bazooka
- hire others to cut down the tree
- declare a vendetta against the tree and convince “all my followers” to cut it down

Played three games with my kids today. It was fun! But it turns out that playing games with a 5 year old is a bit taxing after a while.

In the last couple months I read the Dresden Files books.

All 19 of them. It’s been a while since I binged a book series.

You ever wake up from a nap and be like “wait, THIS ONE is the real world??”

Odds of me doing anything productive today:

Three. Just three. Not "three out of X" or "3:something"

Just three.

:dnd: D&D with family is occasionally super engaging, and is occasionally just one of my kids yelling “ancient frost baboons!!” Over and over while my dwarf-playing daughter tries to hit my Goliath-playing son on the head. 🤷🏻‍♂️

My local transit authority has contracted with an “on demand” transit company called Via. Think Uber Pool, but $2.50 per ride. It’s freakin awesome to go from my house to the train to work and back without ever driving myself.
