Finally landed for the last time today.
One more layover and flight.
Leaving for the next leg of my flight.
So much shenanigans. I need a drink.
Time to go bye-byes.
Back home for a few minutes, then I am off again to run some last-minute errands before I leave tomorrow.
Obtaining my ID.
DSS is closed on Mondays so I will be back tomorrow morning when it opens. I will get my haircut later today but for right now I am hungry.
Back home. Ed Turner and number nine were absolutely amazing. Would definitely go again.
Dinner before the show.
Bedtime for programmers.
So there’s a Trump rally going on right now at which he’s mocking and imitating Christine Blasey Ford. Shit like this is why I viscerally loathe him as a human being and wouldn’t so much as shake his hand or address him by title if given the opportunity, let alone vote for him.
Today is one of those days when staying in bed curled up with a good book would have been a much better idea than getting up and working. I’ll probably take a nap later on.
OK Twitterati, another long status, and this time it’s not a rant or similar. My ear is fixed so now all I have to deal with is the resultant headache plus some ear pain and dizziness. They used cold water to wash it out and I am still feeling like a whiny person and I’m freezing cold even though it’s 70 degrees so I am going to bed.
There is water in my right ear and it won’t come out, and I am tired. However, there will be beer in this house later so the weekend is shaping up to be good.
Sorry Twitterati, long status ahead. I just read the farewell post on the Freedom Scientific blog for Jonathan Mosen. First of all, the amount of ass-kissing going on there is stunning. Second, it’s yet more evidence of the “Good Old Boys” network effect that goes on all the time in the assistive technology business, and I think maybe it’s time we have a discussion about that in this community. How many average blind people working in the assistive technology field do you think would receive a fawning farewell like that? How many people working for Freedom Scientific support? And all of this says nothing about all the questionable choices Jonathan’s made in a professional capacity over the years. I think maybe we need to have some discussions about those too, specifically about the kind of public behavior we expect from our community leaders. In short, this whole thing feels very wrong to me and it pisses me off that, as long as you kiss the right ass in the assistive technology business, you can expect your employer, even former ones, to handle your publicity for you.
That feeling when it is absolutely critical that you find a file, but you can’t remember either the file name or it’s contents, and you have no idea where you could have possibly stored it and Windows search is pulling up nothing. How’s your Wednesday going? I need a drink.
