Skudd's Grumps

December, 2020

Everything is stressing me out right now.

I just had an intense feeling like a snake going up my sleeve.

My video card sucks. If you want to donate to the better-video-card-for-skudd fund, click here. :)

Why do "Big and Tall" shops only cater to the "Big"?

Since last Wednesday, my need for antacids has dramatically increased.

Grackles.

I shall now attempt the acct of sleeping through the day.

(It was 22 hours.)

I am too old for all nighters.

It's going to be at least a 21 hour workday.

Approaching a 17th hour of working.

Every time I call somewhere that has a voice menu system, the recording says something to the effect of, "Please listen to all the available options as our menu has changed". EVERY TIME. Now, I'm seeing similar things for privacy notices on sites I've never previously visited.

Insomnia.

After I got in the line and everyone else formed another line and wouldn't let me into it, the dude called again for people with simple checkout and order pick ups to come to him. I growled loudly and stormed out. Now I'm going to cancel my order and place it elsewhere.

Dude at O'reilly just bit my head off because I was at the counter marked "Order Pick Up" instead of standing in the long line for people wanting to talk to someone.

I apparently was snoring pretty hard last night. My nose and sinuses are irritated by it still this morning.

All these places offering apps that do things third-party for others, such as FedEx tracking. Why would I want an app just for that? It seems like a privacy attack vector.

Even though I washed my hands multiple times and used a chunk of stainless steel as a bar of soap, my hands still smell like onions.

When phone menu system recordings say "our menu options have changed". Instead of saying that, say something like "please listen carefully to the options and make your selection".

FS19 AutoDrive is incredibly broken. I have a network established between a field, my farm, and two different sell points. It keeps saying it can't find a route, and I can't find anything that's broken anywhere.

My SI joints hurt so bad that moving to a sitting position is excruciatingly painful.

My sleep after the previous Grump was incredibly light and punctuated by moments of being awake.

I am incredibly tired, but I can't get back to sleep.

At bedtime last night I took my medicine as I always do. I went to lay down in bed, but this overwhelming bitterness started to hit me, and it was making me gag. I tried to swish with water to knock any stuck pills loose from my mouth, but it had no effect. I gagged more. Finally, I grabbed a Tums to chew on and hopefully knock something loose, which it did. The bitterness remained about another 30 minutes, and the adrenaline from it all for a couple hours. I didn't fall asleep until sometime well after 1am.

While I have my hair pulled back in a hair tie, I thought I had hair falling down over my face. Turns out, it's just my eyebrow.

I need to come up with better ideas for GrumpLog'ing while working from home.

I have Spotify running on my personal computer, my work computer, and it's installed on my work phone and my personal phone. All of a sudden just now, while I was listening to it from my work computer, it decided to start playing from my work phone.

This "10-15 minutes" has actually been 30 minutes at this point, and it doesn't feel like it's going to lighten up any time soon.

I opened a new bottle of coffee creamer this morning. I think it's gone sour already, even though the "use by" date is December 2nd.

The damn splintery skin that peels at the base of my thumbnails.
