Now have seen my primary care doctor, the lab, and a dietitian. They are ok with my diet, but not so much that I sit on my ass all day. (Because Reasons, of course.)
So it's the same recommendation as always: less garbage food, more exercise. Nobody has figured out how to have more time for any of this, however.
Signed up for Spotify because I can’t play music I already paid for on the office speakers. Only works with streaming services. I have no use for it otherwise.
Two songs into my test playlist and I get an advertisement that is wildly inappropriate for the office. Serious visit from HR level of inappropriate.
Can't sleep, tax deadline will eat me.
I'm not even with the returns, it's not October yet. I don't want to hear about it.
"Be self-employed, they said. It'll be fun, they said." (I'm not, but I handle household paperwork.)
Just in case you thought the US health insurance system was not sufficiently perverse, there's always the tax system. And as is true for both, if you are rich enough you get better results because you pay other people to deal with it.
Read the article if you want, whatever. I'm here for this perfect headline:
Well, hello, Broadway. It’s so nice to have you back where you belong.
Extremely deceptive home warranty scam pissed me off. Personal information scraped from Colorado property records.
Nothing to suggest it’s a solicitation. Also: no house there.
And these people can’t even fraud right. Not only is it addressed to my spouse alone (first name on the deed) but claims our SF mailbox is the “home” urgently requiring the warranty renewed.
Reported to CA Dept of Insurance. Bonus: company appears to be hiring “inside sales” via job website a friend works for.
Opened a link and it was a site that “takes a few minutes to process” a privacy opt-out. Fuckers!
The study’s finding of the prevalence of manipulative designs and configurations intended to nudge or even force consent suggests internet users in Europe are not actually benefiting from a legal framework that’s supposed to protect their digital data from unwanted exploitation — and are rather being subject to a lot of noisy, distracting and disingenuous “consent theatre.”
We lived in a basement apartment for a while. In an area where people regularly sandbagged driveways to basement garages. It was what we could afford, and I still don't know if it was legal.
A new owner's DIY renovation resulted in the hallway outside flooding when it rained. We left because of mold and mildew from the damp walls. That was 15 years ago.
People who expound at length about their healthy "clean food" lifestyle - who is cooking for them? I don't see how you can shop & cook for yourself, much less a family, and actually work for a living.
I certainly can't afford to get everything from the Whole Foods to-go case.
As if that would actually be reliable, as evidenced by yesterday's requested "low carb" restaurant meal that had sweet sauce on the vegetables. (There were few good options, and it was already a second attempt at food.)
Suspect we may have been scammed on an Amazon order of n95 masks. The listing has jacked up the price and acquired additional one star reviews since I ordered. They already weren’t cheap.
I’m not too worried about losing money, if Amazon doesn’t come clean I call Amex and they take care of it.
But it’s annoying.
We’ll see what shows up in today’s mail.
Mastodon x appdot.net = fun? A place for former ADN users - on the whole
