2020-11-20T15:54:34Z|100|Blog.. blog.. blog onto my screen.. let me read the ponder.. of all of you.. baby I read you
I mean... 110? People must be confusing Inquiry with someone else, 'n shit!
Lookin' kinda breezy outside. Kind of a half-assed work effort today, so far... tended to a couple low-grade tasks that might suggest engagement/busy-ness to others whose opinions matter to job security. You know.
And, after all, it is a short week what with a couple days off for Thanksgiving....
<don't worry... imma feelin' as guilty as I should about it>
My wife has off all week, so she's painting come cabinets, lining up some professional help to facilitate the new house being as move-in ready on the closing date as possible, trying her best to avoid mucking with my goofin.. I mean my work focus.
Isn't it a bit suspicious that we use the word 'is' as though what follows will dive deeply into the true nature of whatever word before the 'is' is re-ferencing/re-presenting... yet invariably the only thing that ever follows the 'is' is more words?
So... <word> “is” <more words>... does that accurately describe the depth of human understanding?
Sitting “in” (i.e. remotely) the weekly all staff meeting. Pretty typical. Lots of believers. In the various word symbols about the alleged reality of the organizations, its participants, objectives, goals, ways, means. Whole lotta faith. Like with everything else in this mind space in which thoughts (and their somewhat more concrete accretions called “words”) IS (haha) the territory, the reality.
Just 'cuz one's reality is nothing more or less than one's faith/belief in what it <cough> is....
And life is a complete waste of time leading into the mouth and gullet of entropy.
Enjoy both while you can.
Heck of a productive day, here.
Found carpet and flooring we like at Lowes, got me some CPVC joining shit after breaking the threads on a coupling of sorts yesterday. We'll see how well I did tomorrow when I reconnect the toilet and turn the water back on in that bathroom. Kind of running out of CPVC stem in there, so if it's not right, I'll likely have to enlist expensive – aka professional – services. But with maybe just a 'lil lucky....
Also sanded up the shower stall a bit to hopefully take a painting.
<mental note to try to remove more of the soap scum before attempting that again>
Yeah... nah.. I've pretty much lost interest in comments. Or the traditional, “made easy” kind, at any rate. As with the internet in general, making things foolproof – i.e. simplifying things so any moron can participate – is essentially an invitation to fools.
This here kind of commenting? Well, its content might still be moronic from some point(s) of view, but I think it takes just enough effort to dissuade lazier troll commenting. Plus, it increases “cross-blogination”, because one must search others' posts for mention if/when it means that much to one, which means encountering more writing that might inspire still more.
Lazy Sunday morning, here. Grey. Drizzle. Went to bed on kind of a bad note. Just a bit down on this individuality thing, feeling its pull, its coax, yet knowing the ends thereof. It's one thing to have sufficient ignorance for it to occasionally rise to the level of bliss. But once you've gotten a good look at how it works, and the mayhemic havoc its operation invariable reaps... and yet you keep embracing it on and off as if “it'll be okay this time.. I'll just have to be less/more whatever” (e.g. more moderate, more empathetic, less selfish).
And regardless your criteria for your writing quality relative to “par”, I enjoyed both its content and frequency. I dare say I've come to count on tmo to deliver the above-par blogging goods when I'm in need of that kind of a read – which turns out to be pretty frequently.
I've tried lots of off-the-shelf and self-written tools, and integrations thereof.. but always wound up back with simply formatted lines in flat text files to which unix text utilities can be brought to bear – complete with the eventually-fading conviction that all searches for tools that'll likely not work any better than that (yet of course come with their own generally unadvertised problems/limitations) are carefully-concealed procrastination. :–)
When in fact it's utterly due to reading cheesy and/or cantankerous Inquiry posts! ;–)
