I'm going to go back to Canada the last week of March. Yay!

I checked the current weather situation there and damn I really hope those numbers were in centigrade! :stunned:

We're looking at about the 15 to 30 degree range. Also there's these weird * shaped icons in the app. I've never seen that before. :scratch:

Probably F, then. The warmest parts of the country are about 10C all week, everything else about the freezing mark.

Also. :haha:

Went to the eye doctor last night. For the first time since, well, ever, my vision has actually improved over the previous year.

Mine did too, but it was due to cataracts.

That said, I've noticed a marked improvement in my eyesight since being hospitalized for losing about half of my blood down my intestines last week. Isn't that weird? Maybe it is due to lower blood pressure.

Saw Steven Wilson in Denver on Saturday, and it was spectacular.

I shamefully confess having no goddamn idea who Wilson was until last summer, when I fulfilled a decades-old dream of seeing King Crimson in concert. During that show I was blown away by a dude named Gavin Harrison one of KC's three drummers. Figured someone that good probably didn't come out of nowhere, and sure enough, he didn't Research revealed that from 2002-2010 he drummed for a band called Porcupine Tree. Research on Porcupine Tree revealed that Steven Wilson was the songwriter/driving force behind that band, which had a sizeable following in the 1990s and 2000s. Wilson has since pumped out some really high-quality solo stuff as well.

This show is highly recommended for anyone with proggish leanings. Tickets for the show my concert buddy and I saw were $36.50 apiece, which is practically free by 2018 concert ticket standards. The band is predictably great. Nick Beggs (bass, Chapman stick) is worth the price of admission all by himself.

You know, people wonder why some people avoid social situations and parties, it is because people and talking is effing' scary and so much can go horribly wrong.

I went to a barbecue party at the new job place I will be starting at soon and was initially actually talking to people pretty ok like one is supposed to, with just a few oddities that are fairly innocuous (such as someone presented their fist in at a random time and I just stared at it blankly for ages, turns out the wanted a fist-bump). But, of course, I am least adept at the talky parts of life.

Someone was talking about their sister and how her girlfriend is a horror and how they want to tell the sister to just dump said girlfriend and find someone new on grinder. What I meant to reply to that was a self-deprecating amusing line of me being so old (and old-fashioned) and clueless that I think apps like tinder and grindr are just for meaningless hookups and one-night stands, and that they would not be the idea place to find a perfect long-term serious partner.

Instead I just said "Ah, you see, that's the problem, the good people aren't on grindr!"

The awkward silence should have clued me in, but not until the conversation had moved past that (and I fact not really until I got home) did I realize they must have thought I was a raving homophobe. :facepalm:

So yeah, got that waiting for me at the new office now once I start.

Women find girlfriends on Grindr? :confused:

Did they launch a lesbian version?

Well, obviously I wouldn't know anything about that. :snooty:


Actually, I am surprised Tinder and Grindr are different apps, seems a bit limited and categorizing? Surely one would do the job and you just feed in your preferences?

More likely, they're on Grindr/Tinder themselves; not that they think you're a raging homophobe.

Just acquire a fake mustache and use that to disguise your identity during working hours.

For once, I remembered to buy the Mother's Day card ahead of time and get in the mail... but addressed it backwards and sent it to myself. I'm calling this as the next big fad.
