    I was terrified of racking up a huge tab on my card that I couldn’t afford in college, so I made a rule for myself. Cash only at the bar.

    Something i still do out of habit. At least did in the before times when people went to bars.

    My cash alway started out nicely organized in my wallet. Whatever was left ended the night crumpled up and jammed into whatever pocket.

    Can’t be the only one.

    Never had an issue in college but man I should’ve implemented this rule for myself when I lived in NYC.

    So last night we were watching Fear, this mediocre-to-bad horror movie from the 90s starring Mark Wahlberg and Gil Grisham from CSI. Chose it because it was filmed in the house my GF's parents now live in, a beautiful home on the water in Vancouver, BC. So it was kinda cool watching those scenes.

    Up until the last 5-10 minutes, the move was about a 4-5/10. Then in the last scene, middle-aged suburbian Dad throws Mark E Mark about 75 ft out of a 2nd story window, killing him. Credits instantly roll.



    And to be honest, the absurd ending made the movie somewhat more enjoyable.

    That house/location is pretty amazing. Couldn’t help but be creeped out at night living there. Expecting to randomly look and see Mark Wahlberg staring in your window lol. Weird tho that Gil Grisham gets the mention from you over Reese Witherspoon.

    The house is fucking incredible.

    Reese Witherspoon is like the only time I've been big league'd by a celebrity. I was on a flight from LAX to New Orleans, walking through Delta first class. Witherspoon is sitting in first class, looking fine as hell.

    I was in my early 20s and pretty drunk, and as I'm passing say something like, "Reese! Big fan." She gives me a bothered look and just flicks her hand, like shoo-ing me away.

    I shall never forgive her, and I'm not sure how she'll ever live this down.

    I need to stop getting into arguments with randoms on Facebook. I had a dude accuse me if being racist on the grounds that I thought so low of black people in Georgia that I didn't believe they were capable of overcoming the new voter laws. Like how much mental gymnastics did it take for someone to come up with that conclusion.

    One minor gripe about working from home is no more access to the work printer for personal use. Going to have to make a special trip in tomorrow just to print two documents I need to mail.

    Sometimes on the internet i feel lost in a sea of stupid people, and it's impossible to engage w them, and impossible to ignore them

    so i have a fake FB account and a reddit throwaway just to fulfill my need for some limited engagement w the lumpen peoples

    the other day i got downvoted to about negative 50 for saying that Elon Musk was not an African American

    I have to do this as well. Also, the Tennessee State Bar only accepts out-of-state CLE credits via fax, so I have to go into the office to do that. It's ridiculously stupid, especially when they email me back on just about everyone asking for a revolving door of different items, which I respond with sending them what they request as an email attachment and it works fine.

    I love that people have burner accounts for social media. Also now that it’s nicer I keep walking/running further every day. I am currently on a 5 mile loop and I want to go further but I’m always worried that I’ll have to shit or need to be by my PC to respond to someone.

    That's the go-to against any ID laws. I get called that all the time whenever Im feeling bored and decide to mix it up w the chuds on the homeboard. It's a Pavlovian response from consuming right wing media.

    Then you point out how states like Alabama closed all the DMVs in black and brown communities, texas is trying to, ect. That gets ignored

    I’ve been a lurker on FB probably for at least 3-4 years now. I can’t remember the last time I’ve commented on a post. Rarely leave a like. Basically just keep an eye on my mom from doing dumb shit on FB and shake my head at people I went to HS w and extended family.

    Every few months I get a slew of friend requests and suggestions for people I have no connection with. Usually it looks like wannabe models trying to get a following. The past week it’s been what look like young teenage girls.

    I know I’m opening myself up to pedo and Matt Gaetz jokes here but I find that really weird and troubling.

    The blackout version of license plates in Polk county Iowa recently reached the letter combo KKG and I laugh to myself a little every time I see someone with what they consider a badass or cool car with the blackout plate emblazoned with the badge of the basic-est white girls.
