  1. Officially for real finished my book. It is now a PDF. Feels weird/terrifying/awesome/massive relief man.

  3. Things are mostly good for me. I got my first shot two weeks ago so that's nice. We're hoping that by the end of summer Covid will be in control enough that we can put my kid into preschool. My husband has been a stay at home dad for most of the last year now, and that's been a hard transition for him but he's actually really enjoying it now. I did have a total covid anxiety dream the other night where I went over to a friends house and she had like 100 people over with no masks on, so yay anxiety! I'm looking foward to seeing my family without a mask on. I'm hopeful that we'll get

  5. Better news today from spine doctor #1! Since I respond well to steroids, he's going to try epidural steroid injections. And I get to have the first one on Monday. If this works, I'll be able to be a lot more active. If it doesn't work, at least I tried!

  8. Not sure where I left off in this thread, but I gave up on trying to buy a place. The market is going up and LA is already crazy. I just kept losing to people making crazy cash offers, or waiving appraisals, or junk like that. It was too stressful and the horrible people above me were getting worse. I decided to do what I should have done a year ago and just rent a place in the suburbs close to my kid’s school (which he goes back to next week). I decided to get a top floor unit in one of those giant communities that have the feel of a Disney resort. It’s all manicured, has pools, a huge

  12. I kinda hate to be the guy, but lately, things have been good. There's still the ever present existential dread and depression that comes and goes intermittently, the frustration of home schooling, and as Reese said the dwindling respect for humanity in general. Those things are still there and probably won't go away even if things magically went back to normal tomorrow. But I mean. We've paid off the majority of our debt and the rest will be gone once we get the next stimulus payment. We've taken care of a lot of other big purchases we've been needing, AND we now have a savings, which we

  13. I finally broke the 3 mile barrier on my 10k training plan. I felt lousy and it was cold and I didn't want to do it, but I made myself do the workout. 44 minutes and got in 3.56 miles. I have to get ready for Ragnar Northwest Passage in July and my dumb ass volunteered for 19.2 miles.

  14. I got Trevor an appointment for his first shot tomorrow. I still haven't been contacted from the waitlist. I signed us up at the same time, so I don't know what the difference is. But at least he's getting one which is good since he's still partially working and definitely sees more people than I do.

  17. I went on a mile walk! This is the furthest I’ve been able to go since I got COVID. Tomorrow I’m going to start a challenge where I am starting with one push-up and then adding one each day. That seems really pathetic, but that’s where I am physically right now, and it’s taken a long time to get here.

  23. Destiny, thank you for inspiring so many hilarious (moronically juvenile) restaurant review headlines for me!

  24. I’m an expert at this stuff by now. I spent most of 2019 in bed with regular ER trips where they would shoot me full of hardcore pain meds I would say that one thing to try is learning something new. One of the hardest parts of being laid up (for me) is the feeling of uselessness. It doesn’t have to be anything serious - it can be anything from taking an online course (Udemy has some great options and there are always coupon codes for $11.99 courses) or doing an app or just reading Wikipedia or watching a documentary. Post on Nightly. We’re all miserable old wretches, but we’

  25. So we bought a house, completely sight unseen except for the zillow ad and two zoom tours. We close on April 15 and move April 30th. I start at my new job on May 3rd. We need to sell our house ASAP. We have been busting our asses to get it on the market this weekend so we can get it sold this weekend. We had cleaners and a handyman here yesterday. The problem is that Denver is supposed to be absolutely rocked this weekend with snow...they are talking up to 4 feet (which I doubt) but even if we get a fraction of that, it would still be a HUGE storm and limit the numbers of buyers and the

  28. I don’t know what it is like day to day, but I do know what is going into production when and by who— Mando 3 is happening, Filoni is doing the Ahsoka show, Favreu is doing his Rangers show, and the are both already well into Boba Fett. To say either is unhappy or leaving is just not true. All the names attached to Obi-Wan is due to the fact that it was developed as a movie that morphed into mini series, that morphed into a full show and at each stage there was a different writer-producer handling things. It has been a bit of a mess, but the people attached are plenty experienced even if

  30. Today I start my last community college course! Well, actually my phys ed course is still going until the end of the semester as well, but today starts my Texas Government class. I can already tell this professor and I are not going to get along. It's an 8 week class. Her syllabus has everything listed out as 14 weeks. Each "week" is only like 3-4 days, but it's still labeled as "Week 1", "Week 2"..."Week 14. I cannot.

  33. In the spirit of Zath and Tank sharing Boy Scout memories: I was kicked out of my Boy Scout troop for putting exlax in my Scout Master’s hot chocolate. He had refused to let us retaliate against another troop, by shooting fireworks at them, after they had trashed our camp. Up to that moment scouting was fun. I was lucky to have not been exposed to the vile aspects of humanity via the scouts... nor when I was an Altar Boy for a Roman Catholic Church. Dodged two bullets there, I guess.

  36. I was at some restaurant picking up food with my sister yesterday and waiting in line - six feet apart - and I overheard some guy talking to his buddies about how well they riot and burn a few things down but as tax payers we went to Washington DC and messed up a little bit of Congress and we're the criminals. Like because their paltry taxes they pay gives them the excuse to ransack Congress. And I literally felt like my Dad when I said "Two wrongs don't make a right." And they told me to shut up but I was pissed at that comment. "So someone burns a Wendy's down and that's your excuse to go to

  38. I’ve been slowly working at really changing my basement into an office instead of a storage room that I work in. Still have a lot to do, but I’ve upgraded to a real desk, changed some lighting, and added an automated music player that runs during work hours - helps to drown out noise from the family and also makes a soothing environment. When I’m all done, I’ll post before and after pics. Today will involve at least buying some frames for some art prints I’ve ordered to hang there so I can get rid of the pictures my daughter drew / colored for me. A couple is fine, but an entire wall

  42. I usually put tuna in my Krafft macaroni and cheese. But I swear I have the worst taste in food. This is going to sound awful and the most stereotypical American thing ever...but I love shitty American food. Give me good dive bar food any day of the week over any other type of food. I dislike any ethnic food that isn't super Americanized. Even American food that is high end I dislike.

  43. Yeah, not going to lie, I kind of don't want to put my kids in summer camps. Not just because of the virus, but because it saves me a shit-ton of money and I really don't trust people with my son. We may just need to burn a lot of vacation time this summer. And with us likely being hybrid at work, a nanny seems like a pain in the ass because we will be home anyway. I have definitely had dreams where I was out and had forgotten my mask and there were a bunch of people. Its the new "I showed up someplace naked" anxiety dream.

  45. I can echo a lot of what has been said here, and this past year, after the year before, has almost broken me. Most of this I have discussed in previous threads in the past (EG my Dad almost dying 2 years ago, financial and job issues, my subsequent diagnosis of MDD and dealing with the pain of gout and migraines). One thing I will say is this, though: I feel hope coming back. Just the fact we have a new president focused on making things better, rather than exploiting crisis to further divide the world is HUGE. The vaccine roll outs could have been done more efficiently, but they are

  46. Dammit, Jacob! I was going to be that guy, but you just had to beat me to it. In all seriousness, though, a lot of the work we have been doing is finally paying off, both with our jobs and in some aspects of our personal lives. I still need to get in much better shape, but I feel like I will be ale to actually really focus on doing that better with research and teaching going better and immigration issues being hopefully done with for a few years, at least. Since my parents and I are fully vaccinated and my wife being just over a month from being so, too, we are hoping to be able to tr
