Knowing the rituals is a great comfort. Not knowing the rituals is anxiety-provoking. Not having any rituals is frightening. Seeing that rituals are arbitrary and ineffective is just... bleak.

Hi. Been away for a while. Anyone know what happened to instance unixcorn.xyz?

Perspective: Sessions is criminalizing immigration violations. That upends centuries of history. https://t.co/KiJkuJsj0y

Washington Post: "The backlash is coming": The global wave of t.co/UA6w5gYgmM

The Post needs editors.

First, this is half a dozen women's stories, not a traditional journalism piece about a future trend.

Second, there's little about any "backlash." and that isn't the major theme in the women's stories.

Third, typos.

Ugh. IDK what just happened. I have pers & prof involvements on twit so spend lots of time there.

Fellow academic said something about trials have having $1M+ grants etc. & I replied we had very different situations.

Skip to end: I think maybe I just got mean-girl'd by fellow prof as retaliation for unintentionally making her feel self-conscious about perks of her career vs others'... ? Maybe? Anyway, suddenly I was being spoken to the way reddit trolls speak to feminists in /r/twoX.

Ugh.

I go back to birdsite often because it feels more connected to friends (who are not ever going to come here, sadly) and to current events.

That last part is sometimes more problem than solution. I often find myself paralyzed with depression from the news. This weekend is one of those times.




Ah, recycling day. Time to cruise the neighborhood before dawn looking for discarded printers with juicy, delicious stepper motors hidden inside their very smashable, delicate shells.

Early to bed
and early to rise
makes a man or woman
miss out on the night life

*massive groove-out to the bass/drum/sax awesomeness*

But seriously, I'm really tired. Off to bed.

When you finish the @#$%ing project that's haunted you for months and you realize that you can't rest; now you have to go fix all the other problems you've neglected while doing the project.

TFW you just got done grading a paper, and now you have to start another one.
