I swear these shots are the two seconds right before a truly epic fight scene between us and the quarantine zombie horde.

Anyways we're married now.

Look out zombies.

Yes yes yes nice Santa avatar metaverse, well done, wake me when you got folks walking around in sculpted fursonas with scripted nipple clamps.

I keep seeing glances of folks talking about a metaverse like it's a new thing and not a bad Flash knockoff of Second Life ~2004, fueled by banality and digital asphalt.

Gonna make sure to wear my TEETH TEETH TEETH shirt for the next appointment.

Nothing like a little emergency dentistry to brighten up your day.

No worries, I still have the same number of teeth I did at the start of the week.

This of course means that some of the work sitting in place of teeth is gone.

I've tried doing multi-vault in Obsidian etc but for some reason two app windows may as well be two apps – kinda true since each is managed separately – and one becomes the always open default.

Maybe less friction with a vimwiki context shift, but we'll see.

I want to keep work and life stuff notes separate, but I keep crossing the streams.

Working on muscle memory to start vimwiki with `<Leader>ws`, opening a wiki select, rather than going straight to the default wiki.

Show thread

"facial recognition software may be used" okay that's not a neurodiverse thing that's just a fuck you to any tester in general mustn't let anyone feel left out i guess

Show thread

"nothing unrelated to the exam on your desk" so no stims i guess i better pull out my extra clicky keyboard for this so i can fidget a *little*

Show thread

"no headphones"

yes good so i can be distracted by every little bug fart during a stressful exam excellent idea

Show thread

and "no notes or study aids" like okay if you insist but that's how I keep my brain on track I hope you're ready for my 90 minute essay on no not networking technology how about stylistic variances of 20th century fantasy illustration

Show thread

Things like "no mumbling or speaking out loud" which ok fine usually that's me quiet in the corner but if I'm thinking I can't make promises about what noises my mouth meat might make.

Checking the guidelines before I schedule my certification exam.

The online test proctoring rules are – if I may use a technical term from the ADHD / neurodiverse knowledge domain – bullshit.

i literally did not know before now that the tragedy of the commons guy was a malthusian and a white nationalist
