Skudd's Grumps

February, 2021

Networking told me "no" when I asked if they could not hoover the routes for local subnets on the new VPN.

Spotify isn't being very random anymore.

I went to bed last night with a horrible migraine, so bad that I couldn't even take my normal medicine. I slept very lightly as a result. I woke up early this morning still with a migraine. This is going to be a fun day.

I want to play World of Warcraft, but I don't want to pay for it.

It's been so long since I've actually written any code that I can't remember how things are supposed to work.

Smashburger has really screwed up their website. It has some comment about how you can order tots, but they're not on the menu. The credit card fields attempt to auto-format things, but they don't pass their own validation. And you can't modify order details without clearing the cart and starting over. Utter garbage for a user experience.

I want to go back to bed.

I poured way too much peppermint oil in my cup of coffee. Now I have a giant cup of coffee in an attempt to dilute it.

Holy crap, something just popped in my left 5th metatarsal and it hurts like crazy.

I have been fighting to stay awake almost all day. Now I have that feeling like I stayed up all night and have remained awake since.

I have had to use the plunger more in the last 12 months than I have in the last 12 years.

3 of my five prescriptions are being stalled because they require "prior authorization". One of them is one I need to function. I haven't had it since December.

Somewhere between the car and the house I got a double papercut on my finger. I didn't even handle any paper.

"Oh, my lanta."

I can't find my calipers.

The SSL certificate is broken, I know. I'm trying to brain to fix it.

I just had a sudden, overwhelming sensation of the aroma of grilled hotdogs.

lueyfufu suggested that Trump should become a GrumpLog user.

Brain fail.

My body doesn't like any weather conditions where the temperature drops below 50 degrees. Last night, I slept very poorly because of the aches that caused me to toss and turn all night.

A Mormon just reached out to me on Facebook.

Chalk dust gives me headaches.

People keep sending emails containing screenshots of things they want action taken against. Instead of being able to copy/paste the pertinent IDs or whatever, I have to manually type each one - typically a string of 12 digits - into another window.

First-of-the-year e-mail wasn't bad, but now I'm trying to get caught up on Slack, as are the 50 bajillion other people who use Slack, and it's going SOOOO SLOW.

The serpentine belt on my car just slipped off the pulleys for the second time in 2 weeks.

I'm spoiled by the warm climate here, so much that a 50 degree garage is cold.

I just crashed my plane for the third time tonight.

Cognitive failures.

Everything hurts.
