My name is David and I use he/him pronouns. If you tell me your pronouns then I will use them. If your pronouns change then I'll do my best to get them right; please correct me if I use the wrong ones so that I can correct my usage.

If we're still alive
My regrets are few
If my life is mine
What shouldn't I do?

The TSA still requires everyone to remove their shoes, coats, and bags a full two decades after 9/11, but nobody will require masks and boosting to protect disabled people after over 1,031,000 Americans dead from COVID-19.

How do people who've read the original like Sandman?

Because I came in with no knowledge and I'm loving it.

Today's song that doesn't exist but should: the Kate Bush cover of Massive Attack's "Teardrop"

Later summer mocktail: higball glass, 2 ice cubes, 2 shots tart cherry juice, 1 shot OJ, fill with Waterloo Passionfruit, garnish with an orange slice and serve.

(We normally drink wine but we've had 2 different friends over the past few days who don't drink alcohol)

I could have done without the cat waking me up at 6AM

The last day of the art fair went from cold and rainy to hot and swampy

i have to laugh when people say you get more conservative as you age because i'm 40 and my personal journey has been from "means testing? sounds reasonable i guess" to "this mao guy knows what's up"

I think I'm finally dry from being out in the rain all day.

I know we need the rain but does it have to come on the weekend of the August art fair?

We watched an episode of "Forged in Fire" today because I have an interest in learning bladesmithing and that's enough white male patriarchy to last me forever.

One of the few good things about having gotten our stuff out of storage in NC and driving it home was that I could bring my old daypack and puukko with me on Sunday's hike. It was like having 2 old friends with me.

Anyway. Welcome to America, where we could probably regulate this but won't because our government is garbage.

Maybe the rain will clear away a little of the smoke

I really do love my fiancée, but she has this issue of getting herself annoyed and frustrated because she wants to shop and cook like Ina Garten and we only have a small galley kitchen with an apartment-size refrigerator and no pantry space to speak of.
