And now for something a little less reverent: my husband pointed this out to me and now I cannot unsee it.

(These have been added to the list of Local Speciaaaalities I Have Gotten Kansas Family Addicted To And Have To Ship Back For Them, along with pork roll and TastyKakes. )

@nach I didn't realise this was a weird thing until you just mentioned it.

Absolutely sodding knackered.

Someone have a nap for me.

@jk also, stop at a point for no discernible reason other than "why not"

Pain stuff 

Hah. Think I may have jumped the gun on the whole sitting up at my desk thing here. Wondered why I was getting in an increasingly bad mood and just sussed every time I move forward a little bit, my bruised ribs don't half chafe like a chafey thing from chafetown. That + my head pain is a delicious mix, I tells thee.

Don't make a mountain out of a molehill. Don't give the moles any ideas. Do not inspire the moles to evolve the need for mountain-sized molehills by becoming mountain-sized moles. They must aspire only to the dirt, and in dirt they must remain.

Me: in the beginning was the word, and-

It is never safe to turn your computer off.

@candle I'm kinda impressed tbh, I like Ian a lot and I guess I just appreciate that he's found a tech contrarian niche to get paid from. That said, I rarely read his Atlantic stuff because I know precisely what it will say.

Anyway. I am out of bed and have only been punched by a small child once so far so that's a good run IMO

A space is less safe if journalists don't understand that broadcasting stuff from there to their readership explicitly breaks trust.

I say one, I've got five here so I don't have to go back downstairs. Also, it's not a balcony, it's a bed. Don't tell anyone tho.
