I have been so outrageously good about absolutely zero food out and yet I have been cohabitating with a mouse in the kitchen for a week and I am UPSET. Saw him tonight for the first time and now the door is open, rest of the house is blocked off, and I’m just… Drinking a beer and WAITING. he made a break already once for the door but I screamed and the door wasn’t open yet so he ran back to cover!! FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

Getting older is hot and awesome. Keep it up. I like how yr face gets lines, and how I can tell you have seen this shit before, etc! Line me up, D***y

While writing in my paper journal, I hesitated before writing a <, because WordPress once ate an entry of mine because I used the less than and greater than symbols in plaintext mode, it didn’t recognize the “html tag” I’d made, and just deleted it. In my PAPER journal, I hesitated 🤣

Was thinking about going on a bike ride tonight but I had major* surgery a couple hours ago so imma skip it and play video games and work out and get high I think. Man my life is cool

*extremely minor, so long ~mole!

The level discrepancy handling in random encounters and the auto battle of earthbound still haven’t been done as well as this game from frickin 1994 or whatever

Cw #food

I don’t post about fast food or whatever that I eat, but don’t get it twisted, I eat all kinds of food, but only really post about the “healthy” stuff.

So today I’m packing a lunch for a park date with myself/my girlfriend on the phone and it’s beautiful. Half of a leftover bag salad, a few ounces of what’s left of a chicken breast I cooked a few days ago for this purpose, a golden kiwi chopped up, some halved castelvetrano olives, with a rice vinegar/tamari/toasted sesame oil dressing! I think it’s really all about the interplay of salty/protein/fruit! This structure seems to be a good base to build an awesome, filling salad with.

I would like to a) not work any more today and b) have a private back yard to tan in lol, I’m so tempted to get into my swimsuit and sit on my fire escape but I want ZERO NEIGHBORS/HUMANS to perceive me lol

So my second new phone is a Sony Xperia 10 IV. It was $380, so way cheaper than flagships, and designed to be a bit budget, but it’s really quite nice. A good compromise.

The photos it takes so far are great. I don’t know yet if they’re comparable to the photos on my One Plus 9, but they’re way better than the Samsung S8+ I briefly had, which, duh, that phone was five years old.

It’s the most stock android I’ve used since my One Plus 3T, one of my favorite phones of all time. Nice and slim, virtually no bloatware other than goog’s own stuff.

Splitting the screen is really cool and works well, there’s an 1/8″ headphone jack, the thumbprint reader is the power button on the right side and feels very natural.

Sometimes it’s not IMMEDIATE, app switching or turning it on, but milliseconds. This is ok, and is the only “budget” piece I’ve been able to identify.

The size of it is so so so nice and holdable. Very narrow but lots of real estate. Good for smaller hands – mine are definitely medium but I had a hard time reaching all the way across without “one handed mode” on the OP9 – not so here.

The one speaker isn’t great. This doesn’t impact me much.

EDIT: One thing I LOVE about the phone is you get a notification way before your alarm actually goes off, and as someone who frequently has trouble sleeping, being able to turn that off well in advance without turning the series off is huge!

I’m pleased! It’s inexpensive for a new phone, it’s plenty fast, I’m glad to have a headphone jack, the version of Android it carries is slim, the form factor is good, the additional bells and whistles are nice!

So I’m kinda back on Twitter but hesitantly. I haven’t put it back on my phone and I don’t really want to. Maybe I’ll keep posting from here for one-offs throughout the day and leave greater usage of it to only when I’m sitting down at my own computer.
