    Wife had a dentist's appointment this morning, and she gets really goddamned anxious about those so she has to take medication to avoid getting a panic attack in there. Thanks to the medication I had to drive her there, and at the same time I had my daily checkup at work... So to save petrol and time, I decided to sit in the car in the parking lot and have the Teams-meeting there :lol: Now, 3 hours later I'm basically still freezing my ass off.

    Went to a private clinic because I still couldn't hear anything with my right ear. Had to pay 50 euros to get the ears washed and my right ear still feels stuck. Should've just waited for a work day and made the company pay for it.

    We painted the spare bedroom which I'm currently using as an office to work from home. This room will eventually become a nursery which is what we were planning for when we bought the paint. It's an ugly neon green that is not suitable for either purpose and I hate it. Now I have to go buy more paint and paint this room a second time.

    Working out of town, been gone a month.

    Was supposed to go home tomorrow for a week for some rest and Thanksgiving, but because of Covid, there’s a chance I might have to quarantine for two weeks not earning $ when I return.

    Talked to my wife about it, makes no sense to either of us, so now I’m just staying here until Christmas Eve. Making $, but it sort of blows...

    Buying clothes online is too much of a gamble with sizing sometimes, hope that winter parka I just ordered is fitting properly. With jackets I usually fall somewhere between small and medium, so I ordered medium this time because my body measurements were more close to that size. Finding something that is waterproof to some degree and warm enough is also hard, because it rains water like hell in here from november to december, or if it gets cold enough then snow. Good thing is that I got 40% off from the original price of 300€.

    Never played a Warwick. I found the multiscale to be the biggest difference in feel. It took me 5 mins to get used to and I haven't looked back since.

    I know how you feel, I ordered my bass after I got the funds together.

    I got my lip pierced last night.

    I've wanted to do it since I was like 14-15, and actually tried to do it with a safety pin before (I got it about halfway through my lip when I realized I didn't want it pierced that bad). Then after I was old enough to actually get it pierced, I was too worried about trying to be a normie, and then not doing it out of respect for my boss that didn't like that kind of stuff. Well, the place I worked for got bought out, and piercings are verboten, but due to doing the fact that I'm only working hard enough to not get fired until I find a new job, and having to wear a mask now because of covid, I figured it was time to YOLO.

    I got it fairly close to my lip so if I need to I can put a less noticeable piece of jewelry in after it's healed as needed, but, Jesus Christ, it's high enough that every time I try to eat something the back of the stud they put in it catches on my tooth and it feels like I'm trying to rip it through my lip.

    But I've spent 15 years going back and forth on getting my lip pierced, and now that I did it my wife and I are arguing over whether I should do spider bites or snake bites. I'm thinking a spider bite with a ring that goes through both of them, but she's saying snake bites.

    Also, the song on the radio after we got done (she got her labret pierced)...I hurt myself today To see if I still feel I focus on the pain The only thing that's real The needle tears a hole The old familiar sting. :gayfight:
