    Discovering that my flat is falling apart. Door frames are coming away from the wall, and there's so much damp that I've given up fighting against it. The fact that there are wooden window sills in this place is beyond insane. Most of the year round is cold, and rain is more common here than in England. I only have night storage heating to protect myself and the flat, so is it any wonder there's a problem?

    It shouldn't annoy me, because I've known for a long time that I live in a hovel.

    The claim to be a misanthrope...and a writer...does not square for me, add up. I hate people so I'll write a book for them. Unless it's more of an existence is tiresome, look at my feet, look at my hands, my hands, my fingernails, my breath, my eyes, I hate everything? I could read more of that, I suppose.

    That the calculator and calendar buttons are next to each other on my phone and I ALWAYS hit the wrong one first. Like every time.

    I've already dug an escape tunnel. Prepared minds. Hold hands, single file.

    All best

    I've been self isolating for way too long, I'm taking facebook comments too personally made by people I don't give a shit about. It makes no sense.

    Facebook. Why do people do it to themselves? Do yourself a favour and fuck it off for good. You honestly couldn't pay me to use that cancerous place.

    When actors do a 'falling from a cliff/building' stunt on a wire, against a green screen, and are told to peddle their arms and legs as they're suspended in mid air.

    Why? Who decided, or even thought, this is what a person does when falling from a great height??

    Do they do that? Sadly in quite recent times we have seen films of (actual) people & heroes falling from buildings to their death.

    I dropped out of Facebook a decade passed...so...so...lost contact with all of my friends and my family. mmm

    I joined WhatsApp 2 weeks ago for ‘work purposes’ - which is almost worse than f-bk - if you’re a ‘sensitive twat,’ me. A proper waste of time awaiting approval. But then I sulk if there’s no spam on my shit-blog.

    People who are clueless as to the fact that if the "meme" they made didn't go viral, they didn't make a meme.

    My sleep habits have been atrocious since the shut downs started. Tonight I resolved to get to bed with the light off at midnight.

    .... It's coming up 2:00 am and I haven't been able to get to sleep for nearly two hours.

    As long as you have the blue-light filter/night mode on your device, I've found that games like solitaire or bubble shooter can dull the mind rather effectively.

    People actually do this binge-watching thing when they have anything else to do?

    I know. I fall asleep over my lappy or phone all the time. At 3:30 or so.

    As it turned out, last night I said to heck with it and for about an hour opened my phone to my favourite YouTube 24/7 live feed kittens channel. They have a new expectant momcat who's due to pop in a week or two. Wonderful excuse to neither sleep nor write.

    (Did I just say that? Oh, no. Of course I didn't.)

    Oh... wow. Did I just read that? Now I know what I'll do, next time I can't sleep :D

    You know something really strange? For the last two weeks I've been sleeping really deep and well. Almost no dreams as well. Well... I was actually missing my lighter sleep, seeing that for the better part of two years I haven't slept well at all.

    Now, in my new location, the lighter sleep is back and I'm glad about it. Weird or weird? Weird. *nods*

    Adjusting from Borderlands/Call of Duty style of controls to Skyrim/Fallout style and back. Mainly it's the sprint button that fucks me up. No, wait, that's sneak in this game. Wait, that's not the jump button. What game am I playing again?

    Smoke another bowl.

    The people who drive over 15 mph on my parents' street. There are small ones in these houses. Slow down.

    I played DayZ the other day, for the first time in about four months, and got scratched to death by a hoard of infected because I couldn't remember what button to press for punch :D

    Abortive replay of F.E.A.R. 2 to Black Mesa (Half Life 1 graphics upgrade). Suit sprint is nowhere near the same as slo-mo/bullet time/reflex booster, you're just an enthusiastic self-propelled sandbag.

    And the less said about Rockstar--Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption--controls the better. Red Dead controls are just insanely complicated. I wanted to ride the horse, not shoot it in the face with a sawed off, though that can be delightfully amusing when the mood strikes.
