Weird mix of anxieties this morning:

Okay, I've tried everything else, let's see what happens here. I'm a 56yo IT professional currently facing age discrimination in the job market. My skills are proven and broad. I can do operations, project management, service delivery; am versed in multiple OSs, monitoring systems, ticketing platforms. I'm a technical writer and published author. I'm willing to relocate pretty much anywhere for a job that pays enough to cover my mortgage. I need employment by Sept 30. CV on request. #job #dayjob

Someone is taking switching instances really seriously.

(Not me, I like it here :C_H: )

"Wait," said the alien, "I have heard this story before."
The human paused. "Oh, maybe I have told it-"
"How can this be? A story is given, from teller to listener."
"How can you still have this story?"
"Oh! Humans do not lose a story once it is told. We share."

TV was on at a customer's office this morning. Fake-cheerful morning show host was doing a scare piece on how banning single use plastics will make your life miserable, surrounded by doom & gloom news tickers scrolling across the top, bottom & right side of the screen.
Makes me want to move to an island & rent vintage typewriters to vacationing writers

It only takes a few days in technological isolation to really feel the dysyopia when you return

Occasionally when my alarm is trying to wake me up, my mind creates an elaborate mythology around the act of hitting snooze in a desperate attempt to preserve my sleep state. None of the concepts or images ever survive consciousness, but there is the vague memory of an internal struggle against very compelling but completely irrational need to avoid waking up.

Brains are weird

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to remember any details beyond that, and it's fading more & more as dreams tend to do

Had an odd dream where I was watching some sort of competition between & regarding how many services they had. The number 13 featured prominently.

But it was all just a rap battle between two people I didn't know

Doesn’t matter how old I get. If you say “TP for my bunghole” I will laugh. I’m sorry for this.
