My general rule when I'm on the phone with my parents is to not be the one to hang up first, since I figure that's the least I can do…but I may need to amend that to "don't hang up first unless two hours have passed"

hmmm i think i need to invent some new things to look forward to

I got a new desk in February and only brought my old one down to the curb this week—it had been sitting in the middle of my kitchen for six months. And yet, every weekend I still make an aspirational todo list of chores

i almost threw this out by accident—it was at the bottom of a box of merch that i ordered, mixed in with the packing material

I have a corkboard that I'm using for a project, but I don't have a good wall space to put it on so instead I just lay it flat on my bed when I need it, but sometimes little bits of cork come off the back because it's cheap and thin, so when it's hot out like now and I've taken everything off my bed except the sheets I need to go get the quilt first to lay down so I don't get bits of cork in my sheets, and sometimes I don't want to get the quilt so I don't do anything

I really want to like Project Highrise since I was into SimTower years ago, but I think needing to place wiring and plumbling closets on every floor and run electricity, phone, water, HVAC, etc. to every unit is one level of fidelity more than I was looking for. Glad that elevators seem to be less of a pain though

tonight i got to introduce my parents to the "here comes the pizza" saga

haha I tried to buy something from a japanese retailer that doesn't accept us cards and set off fraud alerts with three different banks

there's a new Atelier gacha game subtitled Alchemist of Bressisle and I can't help reading it in a Snoop sort of way

I saw an ad for a company called Try Cleaning with the slogan “If You Haven’t Tried Try Cleaning Today.” Grammatically upsetting

when you’re getting the last dregs out of a bottle of whipped cream it comes out at a different framerate like it’s from into the spider-verse

if i suddenly had to do a podcast ad read for squarespace, like to resolve a hostage situation or something, i bet i could pull it off. just give me that offer code holmes

morrowind is good because there's an enemy that attacks you on sight UNLESS you use a calm spell or sneak up on him, in which case you can have a short conversation where he gives you a drink first

new type of guy: watches asmr videos at 2x speed

project idea: play and rank all of the wii shopping channel games that appear on the update day sketch from nirvana the band the show

Mass Effect spoilers 

The Reapers can mind control people, the Thorian can mind control people, the Leviathan can mind control people…not to mention the synthetic analogues, like the heretic geth virus that effectively mind controls the other geth. Or hell, the entire "control" ending. It's a lot! "They were mind-controlled into doing that" is not the most satisfying end to a character arc…

I feel like Mass Effect could maybe lean a little bit less on mind control
