Skudd's Grumps

April, 2022

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.

Password change day. Again. Seems like it's earlier this time.

I think I had my morning schedule wrong by an hour. I thought rehearsal was at 7:00, but the only other person here is the pastor.

Why in all that is reasonable are there STILL poinsettias in this building?!

I just got a weird craving for some sort of food, but I can't identify what the craving was.

I am already so angry this morning that I almost put my fist through a wall.

The ending of "October Sky" got me teary-eyed.

In the middle of doing some work, my computer suddenly decided to reboot for Windows updates.

Visual Studio 2022 is garbage.

I just reinstalled Windows and realized that I didn't back up my email filter rules.
