Notes and scribbles

I try to jot down my thoughts as I go. I publish them here and then syndicate them to other platforms, like Twitter.

I crafted all of these items just for you. Yes you.

I have to admit that I probably would watch Eurovision.

But I am partnered to someone who despises it with a passion and if it’s a choice between me and the wifey then the spangly eurotrash don’t have a chance.

[reporter] Why ARE trans people always so miserable?

[the UK trans community, waiting to hear the outcome of a court case on whether transphobic beliefs are protected at work] sigh

"[Full-Stack Developer] was first used when front-end engineers started doing javascript on the server, with the introduction of node."

Hmm, funny that, because I remember it being when a load of Silicon Valley cunts invented the concept in order to economise on hiring, but what they really did was economise on frontend quality by hiring backend devs and forcing them to do frontend and that's what led to the state of the web today but why don't you go ahead and invent whatever fucking history makes you feel comfortable, fuckmouth.

Having tried to use the Instagram API this weekend I can only conclude that Facebook hates everyone, including its own developers.

There is definitely an abusive relationship going on there.

I can say with absolute certainty that if I didn’t need a twitter account for my career, I’d delete it forever. It’s mind numbingly addictive and awful.

The problem I have with it is that I can’t use it only a bit, or for a short time. It’s all or nothing. And I’m starting to get the addicts clarity that maybe I need to go cold turkey.

Exciting times as my partner and I play the ancient game of “try to sneak past the guinea pig cage without them noticing”. Partner won after managing to crawl all the way across the living room floor without them squealing at her.

Okay, so I started smoking again a few months ago. Fucking awful habit, and this time it made me actually feel ill. But I couldn’t stop. Each lungful felt amazing, but afterwards I felt sick as a dog. Like my body was giving me side eye.

So the other night I smocked a lot during a Friday night pre-curfew bender. The resulting hangover was absolutely awful. Proper 24 hour stuff. But it all felt like the aftermath of the fags.
