Damn you for having an office. We have open space, and my team is moving into a more open open space next year. This is enough to annoy me.

When I started here, I shared a four-person office with 3 other people, and it was great! Then I bounced around open floorplans for a couple years, and now I have a shared office again. There are 4 desks, but not nearly the space for 4 people. There were 4 of us to start, but 2 moved out because it was untenable. So when they moved those boxes onto the empty desks, I was happy to hear it was just boxes, and they didn't come with new people. :phew:

New first world problem:

Mrs. Reasons decided to get a 4K TV for the family this Christmas. Unfortunately, she underestimated how much bigger the new TV is - it doesn't fit in the armoire we have.

It's currently crooked with one leg sticking off the edge - a small piece of wood is keeping it steady.

I would have another first world problem, but a quick search revealed how to reset the Wii's video output settings so I could make it compatible with the new A/V receiver. It's an amazing 480i resolution on a 4K TV.

All of the appliances in my building are breaking at the same time. Our stove is out of commission, along with the dryer, and the washer's on its way out.

I AM COMPLAINING ABOUT MOVIES AGAIN.

So after Filmstruck shuttered, I had planned to go through my Fandor queue until the new Criterion service starts up. But then, Fandor was sold to some shady media conglomerate or something, and they fired almost all their staff and hired some part time skeleton crew to keep it running until they re-launch it as another generic streaming site to compete with all the other generic streaming sites. I figured I'd stick around, though, and watch their existing catalog while it's still there.

But then, they decided out of the blue that my payment information needed to be updated, which it didn't. It hasn't changed. But I'm like, "Fine. I'll just enter it again," and I do and I get error messages, and I keep getting these stupid emails telling me to update it, and I swear I tried like 20 times in different browsers and everything, and I emailed support like five times about it, and it won't take my money, and they shut down my account for nonpayment.

And it's snowing and overcast and I really wanted to watch some movies, and all we have is Netflix, which has an awful selection. I've pretty much seen everything I want to see on there already.

I know I'm mostly mad about it for selfish reasons, but I actually do think it's a really bad thing how these big corporations are trying to get everyone doing all the same things at the same times in service of their profits, swallowing up and destroying everything that doesn't appeal to a large enough market.

And whenever anyone talks about it, otherwise normal people start talking about 'content' and 'properties' and 'ROI' and shit like they work in mergers and acquisitions.
