They're a real problem around here.  Normally I'm home.  Some people have opted to have deliveries made to amazon lockers, which are more secure.  It's a PITA, but at least the stuff will be there when it's shipped to you.

I've had people steal potted plants off of my front porch a couple times.  It doesn't say much for the general morals of humanity that somebody would walk off with one of a matching pair of large pots filled with cheap-o spider plants.  And, that doesn't begin to address their poor design sense.  They should at least have stolen both of them to avoid asymmetry.

I woke up to a knock on the door, confused, I opened the door, and the mailman handed me my TV. My alarm didn't go off.

So I got to skip calling the local post office, which is a good thing. My last interaction with them was... not pleasant.

Guys, I think 32 inches might be a bit overkill for a monitor, but it's FANTASTIC. I blew like 3 hours just watching old bsg clips on youtube.

Modifications had to be made to get everything to fit, but I ripped a side panel off a desk in the garbage, and used it as a riser for my computer. It now lives under the kitchen table my desk.


Hardest part was prying the industrial staples out of the fiberboard. Pliers and hammer action!


Sooo, definitely overkill on the size, but as far as purchases go, I'm happy with this one.


It's TCL, which is essentially Roku. It's MIC, but the company is headquartered in CA. The screws for the stands were surprisingly decent. Maybe they ship all the crap screws to home depot.


I did have to get with the times a bit as far as interface goes, no VGA on the set. Also no RGB, but it came with an adapter.


Another neat thing is that if I put the roku app on my phone, I get (mostly) wireless headphones! I wish Vizio did that.

Your card should have HDMI, yes? That's a decent connection, especially if you're just using the TV speakers, one cable and no worries of connecting separate audio cables.

It does. I like it.

Tonight was nice, no stress amplification in any way.

I did have to shut off steam cloud backing up my saves, I manage to bork saves in Bethesda games hardcore. I don't even mod, I guess the engine doesn't like how I climb everything, which is weird.

Up in the middle of the night.  Can't sleep.  And after all that turkey, you'd think I'd be in a food induced coma, but no.  This is annoying.  That, and the ants in my sink.  I don't get it.  It's wet outside, so they come into my plumbing fixtures.  Can't they get enough water out there?

They exist to inconvenience you.

I was sick, so I had cold leftover pizza for thanksgiving. I'm glad my mom managed to go to an actual thanksgiving.

I found out an important NPC I was supposed to meet in my game died because I went into a place called scorpion gulch. I had a laser shooting robot, so I wasn't phased, but NPC guy died and fell into what is known as "blue hell" in gaming.

I'm contemplating doing some paperwork. Actually, I'm contemplating doing a lot of things but this is as far as it gets with me these days.

I need my youth back.

Cleaned my computer. There's a burnt out spot on the mainboard related to the front panel, but those ports were busted out when I got it. Computer is now spinning out cool air instead of hot angry air.

Stupid dust, I never invited you to the party!

I hate dust. Especially in the summer when you can see it in the air.

Right now I'm doing my first Christmas present reconnaissance.

I had a very annoying roommate who was broke as poo, but still had a 1980 928.

His problem? He was a chef who found Jesus. And talked about it loudly and constantly. Also his skills slipped. Loser put srachia on everything.

Point is, there are probably cheap Porsches out for people who know where to look.
