I'm happy to see dog racing finally gone from Florida, it always seemed skeevy and gross when I was a kid and heard it existed.

But then *galaxy brain* why is horse racing any more noble? I grew up around horse racing and trainers across the board treated their animals like shit, and it's all about gambling and money.

trying so hard not to dislike everything about my daughter's boyfriend

Went to a book reading where half the people in the audience had already read the new book (came out 2 months ago) and wanted to ask a bunch of spoiler-y questions about it.

That's never happened before. Thankfully, the author danced around answers without spoiling a book I'm about to dig into.

why isn’t every mastodon iOS app called Toot Suite

I love the local hardcore baptist church that always throws an afternoon "harvest party" every Oct 31st to try and keep kids away from halloween but they never reference or mention it but they're terrified and totally being owned by children dressing up as ghosts


airpods not in my ears or their charger case are the most anxiety producing objects on earth, how does this person do this without hyperventilating?!

95% done with a monster project that I can finish today if I just buckle down and belt it out but I didn't make any progress on it yesterday what is the term for this god I hate this feeling after working on it for months...

every day around 3pm I have to eat something crunchy and I think if it were 200 years ago, I'd probably keep a small bag of Fall leaves around to gnash every afternoon.

TFW you see a friend tweeting to an airline's twitter handle. No good can come from this.

people say opposites attract but they never say once you're together you might realize you have nothing in common

i wish there were flu handshakes instead of flu shots

Got new painful retainers from my orthodontist, tossed and turned all night with anxiety dreams. Woke up to terror bombs.

Fuck this wednesday.

unpopular opinion: I've never heard Pod Save America and watched their live taping show on HBO and there among their superfans they were so smug and self-congratulatory and up their own asses I'd never want to hear their podcast. It's not a good venue to introduce people new to it.

found a tab on my browser that was so incredibly fascinating but I have no idea where the link to it came from.

Wish Google Chrome could somehow tell you that ("this tab launched from a link on this previous URL!")

I open the birdsite and every single tweet from every person I follow in every walk of life is about what the president said today.

Remember "you have been trolled" from early internet days? The president is an elite level shitposter, and everyone is falling for his bait.

My local town holds a "Daddy Daughter Dance" for 3-15 year olds and I've always found it to be incredibly weird and fucked up and avoided it, but it's a beloved event for most of the town.

It feels like some nonsense out of the 1950s to me.
