    I worked on Saturday and had really weird dreams, which led to a depression on Sunday. It was a kind of shitty day. But hey, I get this Friday off, so I got that going for me :)

    Great point. I figure, I'll get started and see where I end up!

    I want to start doing calisthenics and stuff, maybe 15 minutes after work or so -- any tips? I'd like to work on my chest (male). Any tips are appreciated.

    I was kind of wondering if/when they'd be doing this .. day 1's definitely a record, eh? I wonder if they'll try filing impeachments against all possible future Democratic presidents just for safety's sake.

    What the actual fuck. This farcical bullshit from Republicans is never going to end, is it? <exasperated sigh>

    It's not, sadly. I don't even know the balm for this any more. Honestly, I think the cure would involve some pretty authoritarian shit as well.

    I struggled with depression this week. I'm feeling better /right now/, though, so hopefully I'll be better next week!

    Any hymn by the Charles Wesley is a banger -- see, e.g., Battle Hymn of the Republic, et al. I also get Danny Boy stuck in my head all the time, as well as Whiskey in the Jar. Any long ballad...

    I also get Danny Boy stuck in my head all the time, as well as Whiskey in the Jar.

    Any long ballad would work, it sounds like -- try works by Bob Dylan, L. Cohen, oh, Guthrie, or maybe ... opera? Wagner? Might be cool.

    Also gotta love the rep for Rocky Top -- as a Tennessean that song is my heart <3

    This was a really cool video, but I'm afraid that, at least for me, the title is inaccurate. Maybe I'm over thinking hyperbolic geometry? I just know that it's the inverse (obverse? one of the -verses) of spherical geometry, and you can crochet it (but not knit it!).

    Decorated for Christmas, got a tree, and lazed around. I was tired all last week so on Saturday, I didn't do anything. It was glorious!

    1000% true! I feel like I've also read something about how kids these days (heh) will be more used to / expectant of this sort of hyper-realistic rendering effect. I mean, in my day, cartoons were .. cartoony because they couldn't afford photorealism, or it didn't exist -- but nowadays, it's the style b/c it's possible.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan. It's uncanny valley for me. I'm not the target audience for this movie, but I don't understand the choice.

    I love Phoebe Bridgers so much. I didn't realize that ghost was like a talisman for her -- I /think/ I get it?

    I gave up. Blep. My mood has been all over the place this week, and I've been pretty consistently depressed every day in the afternoon. I will try again next year though :)
