After months of playing ARK I finally found and tamed an otter. They're too cute!
"Two struggling strangers connect during a mind-bending pharmaceutical trial involving a doctor with mother issues and an emotionally complex computer."
This sounds like my kind of show. (Maniac.)
Doing my best to learn server admin stuffs. Probably not the best idea on 4hrs of sleep.
Think I'll go play Ark instead, save the learning for tomorrow.

Depression, personal hygiene Show more
Haven't showered in a few days, mainly because I just can't be arsed. Think I'm starting to pong a bit though, so better go have one before the husband divorces me. Can't quite believe I'm admitting this in public, but doing so to shame myself into actually showering.
Currently at a fairly low point in my permanent depressive cycle and I know showering will help lift my mood a little, but that whole can't be arsed thing. Anyway, brb...
Just bought a Kuru Toga mechanical pencil (Roulette model). No idea why really, as I always almost write with a fountain pen, but the idea appealed to me. Could be handy for quick on the go note taking... Who am I kidding, I just fancied a stationery splurge.
Currently wrangling with a Hugo theme, as well as exploring write.as (both are excellent). Not really sure why I do this, I spend days getting things set up, make one or two blog posts then forget about it. But I always have this urge to tinker and every time I promise myself I'll start writing regularly.
Oh well, it's a pleasant if frustrating cycle to be stuck in.
Just bought Two Point Hospital, so excited. Shouldn't have really, but it's my reward to myself for getting over a nasty virus that gave me horrible vertigo this week. That's my excuse anyway, and I'm sticking to it. :D
Daughter works for large supermarket chain. I love hearing about her work life. For example, this conversation with a customer.
Customer: "I'd like to return this shower head please."
Daughter: "No problem. Can I ask what the problem is? Is it faulty or did you just change your mind?"
Customer: "Oh I got home and realised I didn't have a shower."
Like, dude, wtf?
So I have a couple cameras all ready to go. Yesterday managed to injure my knee. Today can barely walk. No photography day for me today. Life can be so bloody annoying sometimes!
Looks like I'm going to be treated to a visit from my daughter tomorrow, always look forward her visits!
Hopefully I'll manage to sleep earlier tonight so I won't be too tired and haggard looking when she gets here.
I did it, I signed up for an account on the photography instance. You can find me here @firstname.lastname@example.org
That's it now, in my mind I've committed to having a shot at this photography thing again.
TWSBI Go fountain pen Show more
Just updating for those who asked - my TWSBI Go #FountainPen arrived and I've been using it for 24 hours now. It's actually pretty nice. Attached is a not so great quick snap off my phone. If I didn't have an Eco already I'd probably choose that over this, but the Go has advantages. It's very lightweight because it's an all plastic body and the fill mechanism is very simple. The nib is the same as on the Eco. Personally I love the TWSBI nibs, always smooth even in fine.
