I brought my umbrella as insurance against a 30% chance of rain and then left it on the bus
My scallops were success, so I rewarded myself by cracking open a second bottle, and today is starting *slow* but at least it doesn’t hurt.
The scallop creamy garlic linguine was fine, but I am consistently mad at recipes because the times are just wrong. I don’t know what’s going on, but I’m happy with my new hobby. It feels really good to make delicious food and share it with a person I love.
However, I am also sensitive to input, so let me know if my punctuation stresses you out in our private communications.
For the time being, punctuation is not a pay-per-use situation, and as communication is exceedingly difficult atm, I am pro-punctus.
It is very easy to be taken out of context, so I have opted for standardized spelling and grammar (insomuch as I err not) as the signal whose beacon I follow in contrast to the noise of the age.
(Practically) infinite processes seem cyclical, and casual irony, resulting in antonymic meaning, is perhaps the most complicated among language’s cycles. It is often to blame for bad communication, dependent as it is on context.
Though we share a vocabulary, I doubt I speak a common digital language with many people a generation on either side of me. There’s not a conclusion for this, as there usually isn’t for my way of thinking; however, I would like to link this back to earlier.
One of my first music teachers called them “dummy markings” and in many ways, she was very right, but that’s because a common language can be assumed for all musicians in the Western tradition from c.17 until ~1950.
Yes. If you handed me a manuscript with no tempo markings or dynamic guidance, I could still make intelligent, intuitive guesses about the intended “tone”, but why not save questions with a few squiggles?
Young people are stressed out by punctuation (sp. period/full stop) in SMS? Sure, sentence punctuation is relatively new tech when it comes to written communication (and death of author, etc.), but I find it effective re: source intent. This is kind of a music problem too.

It's impossible to "spoil" a Marvel movie, they're all identical. You already know what happens.
Today, in Target's parking lot: GUY: Sign this petition for Voter ID? ME: Do I have to show ID to sign it? GUY: No. ME: So how do you know I'm a voter? GUY: We verify name, address, and sig via the voter registry. ME: You just explained why Voter ID is not necessary.
I was supposed to have a meeting today with someone who wanted to discuss~sP1rI[email protected]+Y~, but my mental health isn't great today, and I can't even for a second manage an irony-free discussion of contemporary Christianity.
Sometimes I think “You know, your rejection trauma was a long time ago” and then I notice that the queer community still passes me over almost completely, even when I explicitly request interaction. So I stopped asking. It’s not possible to heal a wound that isn’t even closed.
I don’t have a big production in me today, so dinner is just going to be creamy garlic scallops and some linguini.pic.twitter.com/MJ7i7009V4
