The way a surprisingly good/interesting interaction can immediately pull you out of a depressed, despairing slump by letting you feel seen.

The way the opposite also holds true.

Looks like federation broke, I bounced it and we should be good. I'll check back in a bit to see if it needs anything else.

Making beef/pork stock for borscht tomorrow. My first time cooking it for my partner's mom's family, let's hope I remember to skim the fat off of the stock this time...

spending your entire childhood in a daydream as escapism leads to a persistent feeling of not belonging in this world as an adult. once you've spent so much time somewhere else, it's hard to learn how to be here now.

That warbling voice he uses in the flaming lips vocal solos is my jam.

“Will the fight for our sanity be the fight of our lives?” Etc.

Everything back clean, I'm back home. They said best guess it was a concussion with ancillary weirdness, but that I am still going to have to see a neurologist. yay!

Whacked my head something fierce this evening, a few hours later had a brief seizure.

I do not get seizures, so this development is alarming.

Now in the ER waiting for cat scan results.

Having an afternoon of just straight-up bawling to Soft Bulletin. I'd not given it a serious listen since my Troubles started, and now that I do I realize that it's so much richer than I even thought. It's about your world breaking but not having the courtesy to take you with it, and now you just have to fucking exist every damn day.

My adorable 3yo brother-in-law is currently really into two things: toilet humor and the Les Miserables soundtrack.

This results in scenarios like:

Me: Hey Jib, sing your favorite song!
Jib: "🎵There is a 🎵castle in a 💩 poopykaka hahahaha"

Hi if you can see this please reply to it! (if there are already a lot of replies you don't have to but if you want to say hi it's a good excuse!)

Are we back? Have I fixed us?!

Umm, hmm. It looks like federation is still broken, huh?

Sorry all I won’t have time until later to dig into it. We’ll get there!

Federation test!

Is there anybody out there, please?

(It's so quiet in here, and I'm beginning to freeze...)

Note to self next time this happens: `sudo docker-compose kill` and then `sudo docker-compose up -d` is enough. No need to dig through various internals trying to debug, just nuke it form orbit.

Hey we should be back and federating again! 👋
