Feeling a bit tired and run down. Lots of nice vegetables should help I reckon

Hmm, anyone in Wellington looking for a queer friendly flat? Or looking for 1-2 flatmates? Legit AFAF.

The warden has decided that we will not be leaving the house today 🀣

I find it a really good sign how much Te Reo we're now getting in utterly mindless trash reality TV. Kind of a sign of how much just normal it's becoming.

This should interest my fellow #kiwi's. It's the old #TVNZ closing "credits". I used to love this.

On boarding some new junior's at work.

I always enjoy the energy and enthusiasm new people bring.

I'm feeling a bit cold and miserable.

Luckily I have a kg of blade steak and a big red pot

At this point it's pretty clear the monkey jpeg market is a failure.

Clearly the only solution is to move to a centrally planned solution to the production and distribution of monkey jpegs.

Crypto pyramid schemes 

I gather something has happened and a bunch of cryptocurrency is heading back to it's inherent value of 0.

It's really kinda sad watching people who have already lost a lot being scammed out of even more.

Feel like I was meta gaming a bit by the last guess but just sneaked in there.

I'm currently rereading Murderbot again.

I'm not sure what it says about me that I relate so hard to a bot/human hybrid that struggles to understand human emotions and hates to be looked at or talk about feelings.

But it's just such a relatable character
