Friend of mine bought his wife new couches. She decided she hated them after like 3 weeks. He gave me $2,500 worth of brand new furniture.
Nice!

We ordered take-out BBQ with a friend, and I asked for a beer with the order.  The server gave me a beer immediately, and then we said we would be back in a few minutes, after the order was completed.

We walked about, got a coffee, and came back, and picked up the order.

We found a spot in a park and opened up the take-out order, and inside the bag was an extra takeout beer.

I published my second short story <3  www.wattpad.com/1080896095-a-strange-sister 

I really needed the boost from this, because we got our 'back to in person work soon' email on Thursday and it really crashed my mood.

Happy Pride and Juneteenth! It's a great month to be gay and black!

I am about as gay and black as Halsey is but whatever, still counts!

I had a public facing presentation for [large tech company] today and my phone was blowing up over the course of the presentation because people kept LinkedIn connecting with me. Multiples per minute.

I don't know what expertise is, because like Socrates, "ἓν οἶδα ὅτι οὐδὲν οἶδα oudèn oîda," but I will keep working hard towards what is right: knowledge, the only worthy thing our species has learned to cultivate.

The people scattered gold-dust before my horse’s feet;
But now I am a great king, the people hound my track
With poison in my wine-cup, and daggers at my back.”

You all make me happy.

Yesterday the purple haired park ranger girl who I caught watching me from the bushes while I was swimming made me happy. Nice use of wilderness hide ya cutie.

The game company called Ezone is still around since 1995, too bad that the games don't work anymore.

I'm in the middle of grading finals for a conversation class.  Due to a Covid spike we suddenly had to go to online classes and my whole final assignment had to be switched to a rather boring dialogue assignment based on units from their textbook.  They're mostly a pain to go through but then I open one by a couple of male students.  They decided to get creative with it and wrote a dialogue based on their textbook but set in 'A Handmaid's Tale'.  It was pretty great complete with 'Praised be' and all of that.  Put a smile on my face.

Literacy is the coolest shit ever. I woke up with that on my mind after a night with someone very bookish for her age which is painfully becoming rarer day by day. Thankful for novelists and teachers like you who imbue a love of literature (and thus a love for other perspectives). Seriously, cheers to you for that.

randomly got front row tickets for random ass David Copperfield with a random ass girl last night. He used the vis command at the start of the show and appeared literally three feet from me and my girl at the start of the show making eye contact with her. She and I were on camera like 25% of the damn show, probs cuz this girl is eye candy for sure. But I didn't look bad either the lighting was forgiving LOL. It was def a shit ton of fun, and some of the appearance/disappearance tricks David did were so momentous were so rapid and with objects so massive* you could feel wind rushing around, it was insane.

* No, I was not one of these massive objects but an usher gave a special escort to my girl at the end of the show, probably to see if she were a groupie. Cast mon un disappear on my girl, huh? But she waited for me, smiling at me as I came out with the rest of the herd and that was one of the best moments of my life.

Just got the news (from the lab after a blood test) that my son, due to be born on New Year's Eve, doesn't have Down's syndrome or any other form of trisomy. There was a pretty high risk considering my age, so that's a huge relief.   :)

Saw the coolest Zalanthan mutation the other day (girl I am messing with has a double row of teeth because a bunch of her baby teeth didn't fall out). I knew she had the persona of a predator but I didn't think she'd literally have teeth like a shark. Craziest fucking thing I've seen and I only love her more for it.

Yeah honestly the girl is nuts, does a lot of body mods, and I only noticed because it felt weird when she bit me.

I can't control a damn thing she does so shark teeth into adulthood it is!
