I'm in Tallinn. That's in Estonia. Which is in Europe, for all y'all 'merkins.

The Finnish name for Estonia is Viro, which derives from one of the tribes in the region. (The Finnish for Russia is Venšjš. The Finnish for Sweden is Ruotsi. And the Finnish for Finland is Suomi, which just proves they are all mad.)

"Ruotsi" comes from the same root as "Russia", and both of them are related to the name of a region in Sweden :chin:

I'm ... back?

Not much to report, otherwise. I voted, I had a new deck built, I continued working the new jerb, I lost-then-gained weight. And I've been reading a shit-ton of books because I have to do something to keep me from watching YouTube videos about the state of Trumplandia. Watching=angry enough to spit nails and depressed enough to open my veins with one. Reading = hello again, my first love.

:welcome3:

Man, it's good to see you back, and those are some good coping skills. I've mostly been just limiting my exposure to national news and doing the normal things I always do, but I like your idea a lot.

I used to read books all the time, but I just sort of slowly switched over to reading things online, and it's just not as good. Too much non-fiction, too many distractions, and not enough full immersion book reading.

Bort! Pary for us! We may be the newest members of the totalled civic club. :mourn:

Did we tell you we got rear-ended halloween morning? We finally heard from the body shop and we're probably about to be in the market for a replacement.

My best girl for 12 years. :inmycar: I'm inconsolable. :whygod:

Apparently, cuz we done it.

We done bought a 2018 civic hatchback ex in blue. Name of Alice, as in Wonderland.

It drives basically the same as the twenty-ought-six (which never had a name of its own) just maybe a little squishier. Or that's just that new car squish.

Since we started looking at these yesterday, I have seen no fewer than 100,000 of this exact model of car on the road. Not so many in my color, though.

BE CAREFUL WHEN WARSHING YOUR NEW BABBY! On the front where the mondo chrome is, where the hood meets a body color fascia panel? That panel can catch your warshing towel or your waxing towel and get bented.

I am duly impressed that the general driving characteristics between the 08 and the 18 Honders is p much the same. I feel a bit more horseypowers, but then I'm of the age where I'm not pushing that limit so it's a nice surprise when I give it the goose and it goes a little better.

:wriggle:


Oh and my third also: I'm only mildly annoyed that only after I had to emergency purchase my new babby did they come out with the chrome trim that I would have selected had I knowned it was an option. I like the shiny chrome, but I would have selected the smokey chrome if I could have.

Matlock and I went to go see Elvis Costello (again) last night, and we took a Lyft because there is like no parking anywhere in that area. The show was really good. There was no seating at all in any of the general admission areas, which didn't seem like a good idea because of how many old people, but whatever.

Anyways, after the show, I go to summon a Lyft to get home, but I have no data. And then I remember I turned it off the other day because Google was fucking around again sucking up data despite explicit instructions not to do that, and I can't change the settings without data on. So we ended up having to take a taxi and pay our driver a fair living wage! It is an outrage!

Then I got home and turned the data back on and had like 15 messages from someone who keeps using Signal to text me even though I said to stop doing that because it uses data instead of SMS.

I remember having those kinds of data concerns when I lived in South Africa.

Now ... I think I'll just turn off wifi on my phone and use my data because I can.

But what do you mean by

Default Re: What's up with you?

I turned the data off at the provider and forgot to turn it back on again before I left. I could only turn it back on from their website, or from the app on my phone, but that only works in wifi range or with data turned on.

I straight up hate walled garden bullshit, so I don't really use my phone for much more than calling and texting, and the occasional map or Lyft summoning. As such, we don't actively use data very often, and some months, we might not have any data charges at all. But a couple of months ago, Google Fucking Play Store decided to do a bunch of system updates on Matlock's phone using data, even though it was set to only do that on wifi. It had already added $10 to our bill before I noticed it, and I couldn't make it stop except by turning his data off at the provider.

Then, a few days ago, I turned mine off for a related reason, and forgot to turn it back on again.

I generally watch youtube instead of TV and one night when I couldn't sleep I spent the night watching random science and british comedy shows, and all of a sudden I had used up all 95% of my data, turns out my phone got set wrong and wow does youtube eat data when not on wireless! After that I make sure things are set right in the kinda shitty youtube app cause it can eat data like crazy if given the chance.

Months later I've been watching youtube and it suddenly wants to use my cell connection and alerts me and I'm reminded about just how much data it eats!
