Kill Me

Before anybody makes a call to the local acute psych services on account of me actively wishing for death, consider my recent tweets:

1. New work laptop runs Windows 8.1
2. Max 1 week before I put my fist through the screen of this abomination.
3. Back to data xfer. #killme

We have reached a state that Roast Beef would recognize as even worse that the Bead Shop, and the shifting of my work is maybe one third done, which must be done tomorrow, before I leave for TopatoCon on Thursday because when I get back I have to immediately get on a plane for a client gig with said abomination.

  • Thing That Makes Me Less Suicidal Today #4: Ta-Nehisi Coates is maybe the smartest writer on race, equality, and social issues working in America today. He’s also a Marvel comics supergeek, and Marvel announced that he’s going to be writing Black Panther. This is perhaps the only thing that could get me to regularly buy a cape comic not involving Squirrel Girl. If I ever have the privilege to meet Mr Coates under any circumstances, I will buy him as many drinks as he wants.

No spam today, I’m already dealing with too much stupid.
