    As a follow up to my previous statement about the bikes - I'm willing to fully admit that sometimes it's me on the bicycle being an idiot.

    Another first world problem: It's getting too cold to bike to work, so I'll need to find a new way to keep moving during the day.

    Chucked my resume onto a new site and got multiple really good offers. Don’t know which to take.

    D'Addario appears to have discontinued their NYLPRO pick series. I stocked up with leftovers from Amazon, but did I buy the right ammount? Too many = waste; too few = false economy.

    It rained a bit when I took my bike to get a burger.

    My DiMarzio Bluesbucker doesn’t sound enough like the digital P90 model in my Variax; and the time I’ll spend swapping its ceramic magnet for an alnico one is time I can’t spend eating ice cream!

    I had to wait an extra 10 minutes in line at the post office because all the octogenarians decided they had to mail knit sweaters to their grandkids.

    It's really hard not to take it the wrong way when one's company, which is the midst of layoffs and the dreaded "consultant process", sends a bulletin advising that as of next year, our group life insurance will exclude suicide. That's a severance package that I wouldn't be able to enjoy- I think I'll wait it out. :lol:

    You deserve better coffee, anyway. I got the nice jewish girl I live with hooked on Nespresso a few years ago; and she’s ensured we haven’t run out since. Maybe you can work a similar angle.

    Not finishing studies of my degree reached ultimate level of procrastination in this fall, but it will end in a week or two, but struggle has been real. And I live in a country where getting even top level university level degrees is almost free. Just... no :nuts: this is not how one should deal with things in life. That's money and time wasted, which I will never get back.

    The new phone I bought, a Chinese brand, has almost all countries in the Region settings aside from countries in the +00 time zone. No UK, no Ireland, no Giblartar. So I have it set at Paris with the network provider correcting the time.

    I washed my beard with shampoo and balm, now it's soft like a unicorns mane but I have a constant smell of perfume in my nostrils.

    Soft= wet steel wool.

    Now that I’ve impulsively spent $1837 on an Axe FX, what will I get myself for Christmas?!
