Watching "The Ricklantis Mixup", with the Citadel of Ricks election/takeover, rather than any political shit from this shitty timeline.
Dealing with family medical stuff this week, every damn thing has been piled up, I get zero time to work or play. When I can finally sit down, can't concentrate on a real show.
Netflix has "Slow TV: Train Ride Bergen to Oslo", 7 hours of a train through cold wilderness and tunnels. I just wish the town signs didn't BONG and the conductor would shut up at stops. Drink my coffee, try to read this Elmore Leonard book, this could be really peaceful.
Between interruptions, I've made it 105 minutes down the track in four days.
I tolerate but dislike cold, but I think I'd like Sweden or similar, out in the boonies with nobody around who speaks English or wants anything from me. ☕️🚂🏔

- Programs aren't bad or good, they just do what the programmer typed.
- Programmers are bad.
My first infinite loop was summer, age 10, only because I hadn't seen a computer until the year before. My pre-college computing skills were 90% self-taught; LOGO class at ~12 and a year of "comp sci" at 14 were minimal. ⌨️🖥
It was nice and dark, so I foolishly went outside, but the Humans were still out Humaning around. Took me twice as long to run errands, and saw one wreck and one near-wreck. Last time I make that mistake this winter.
