Skudd's Grumps

May, 2022

I "woke up" this morning, still somewhat dreaming, and seeing/hearing rats all over the place.

I guess nobody wants to possibly sell me a car. As I was looking over the used inventory for a while, not a single person approached me.

I just ate a mini Reese's cup and got peanut butter on the corner of my thumb nail. I couldn't get it off without wiping with a napkin. I lost that delicious peanut butter to a napkin.

Over the weekend my arms got sunburned (two different occasions, uniform burning though). Today, they itch like crazy.

I am too tired to function today.

I just sneezed so hard my headset flew off.

I have a sudden craving for McDonald's French Fries.

Slack has recently started notifying me of thread replies for all threads. Despite clicking the "Turn off notifications for replies" option, they still notify me. I hate it.

I had another dream that all my Grumps were posting as Jr’s.

I had a dream last night that I went to get some coffee from the Keurig, as I normally do, but it overflowed all over the place.

Massive and sudden arthritic flare in the ring finger on my right hand. Makes for difficult typing.

Worlds. Slowest. Drive. Through. And I am trapped in it.

Confirmed to be a failed monitor.

I think one of my monitors is failing hard.

I failed both Wordle and Worldle today.

Jr is coughing a lot instead of going to sleep.

I needed more coffee to realize I needed more coffee.

Memes are now videos longer than 30 seconds instead of static images or animated gifs.

iForgot the passcode for my iPhone.

I haven't been able to Grump much this week because my internet has been so flaky.

Driver's license renewal process.

My coffee cup is empty.

And now my VPN connection dropped.

Okay, so it didn't lose all of what I wrote, just the last paragraph. Still very annoying.

And there goes the hand cramping with the stress.

In the middle of typing up a very important thing for my teams in Slack, my authentication token expired and I got logged out, losing everything I had written.

Another nail in the coffin for my car: The windshield washer pump stopped working.

Instead of hitting the "snooze" button on my alarm I hit the "off" button.
