Now one too many things have broken. I'm really sick of unreliability and disposableness.

And I can't seem to afford reliability.

Now I'm unreasonably angry.

*sigh*

If I can sleep, I'm sure this will pass.

I don't sleep enough.

I normally get about 4 hours a night.

On weekends I sleep for the normal four hours, get up as usual and feed the cats, and then go back to bed for another four hours.

Yeah, I know. But I have reasons that I haven't figured a way around yet.

The gist of all this is that eventually I run down. I get kinda depressed (not clinical, I don't think, just down in the dumps). My usual pessimism* devolves into actual pessimism.

That has arrived. And what do I do to deal with it? I sign into the secret livejournal account that I've been paying for and type stuff that no one that knows me IRL will ever read.

I was listening to TWiG and Alamo Drafthouse's policy of no Google Glass came up for discussion.

As it happens, they have a policy about no cellphones too.

They played something with a girl griping about getting thrown out for texting.

Then one of the hosts said that to go out, she has to have her phone available in case the babysitter calls.

OK. So you don't get to go to Alamo Drafthouse.

All my life I've had this opinion: If you have a child, you've given up some freedoms. YOU gave them up. Don't inflict your attempt to work around this on the rest of the general public. Don't bring your baby to the movie. No only will all the other moviegoers be irritated, but it can't be a good idea to take a baby to a loud movie.

I didn't sleep well last night, and I never sleep long enough during the week.

A close online friend's dog died.

I watched some stupid wordless animation about life being what you make it except it wasn't.

Made me think of the movie "Up", which my wife and I both really disliked.
(too close to home. It was a bit of a lesson, though, so we're trying to go on our adventures when we can.)

...and I'm stuck for anything else to say.

*sigh*

They revved the iPhone LJ app. And I have a phone with text to speech rather speech to text. I should post more.

I love it when users send an email and TELL you that their computer is giving them an error message...but they don't tell you ANY PART of the actual error message.

I live in an area where groups of riders on motorcycles can drive wheelies down the freeway or stand on the gas tank while going very fast,and the cops can't do anything because of helmets and masks. Chasing them is way too dangerous.

And then police don't have time to arrest the little vandal and petty thieves...
