bland meal review:

it was a lentil-rice dish with olive oil and an optional pouch of artificial lemon juice which i spilled on my pants. pretty much your run-of-the-mill suburban mom type of hybrid 'melting pot of the world's cuisine' mediterranean fare, which i guess, based on personal experience, i would also consider bland and non-threatening, always cooked for and by people who don't know what paprika is but wish they did, and have totally heard about it somewhere before, from a well-traveled colleague perhaps. they served it with a small side salad and some fake and oily naan kind of bread and for some reason also a bad gluten-free soft pretzel without salt. it was fine actually, less bland than i imagined. they served me first(!!!!) and i felt like a shit head and a fraud because the tray and box had SPECIAL ASSISTANCE MEAL printed all over it in red font. i finished the meal by asking the flight attendant for champagne and vodka (free because of long flight) which i immediately mixed together in front of him to his apparent surprise. all in all a good mealtime experience in basic economy

recently completed a 10 day silent meditation course, went crazy but managed to put myself back together after the psychic vivisection. also with all the silence i became intimately aware of how severe my tinnitus is, which was hard to accept since i usually use quality protection, but i guess those few times the music is just that good you wanna rip them out and get your ears fucked bareback with your head in the speakers do real damage.

Some weirdo ordered the special assistance meal, spilled lemon juice on himself and then tried to impress me by ordering two different kinds of booze and mixing them together in front of me. I flagged him for the sky marshal.

wow, 10 days alone in silence. that's wild. i've never had tinnitus but i would probably develop it. and probably also stomach ulcers, lower back pain, panic attacks, asthma, gout

i wrote a big post about my psychological experience with a chronic ailment but i got self-conscious so instead you get a shitpost

i don't really go on to twitter, but there's a motivational speaker with the same government name as me, and i'm aware of her because her followers keep retweeting quotes and saying by her that end up in my @. i looked her up on amazon and she is prolific and looks like she's writing about a book every 18 months, in addition to speaking.

when we were signing the lease on our new place the property manager had a bookshelf with only one author on it, and i was like, oh what's he about? some motivational speaker, "he speaks to our church for free, but makes his real money ya know, talking to the military, and doing corporate events". it's kind of weird to walk into someone's place and see a bookshelf with only one author, but i was thinking how there could be a whole additional dimension of weird, if it was only one author with my same name, and i'd have to try and explain it to people. "it's not me, but you'd never guess how i found out about her"

weird shifts in life, sort of stumbled into a job where i make more money than ever before, quit my other two "normal" jobs. still adjusting to this weird new reality. i never went to college. what a disgusting country.

well folks I'm nearing the end of my phd in "philosophy" and looking for postdoc jobs. I'm doing well publishing papers trolling old stodgy philosophers of science and I'm giving a presentation at the national conference about how feminist philosophers of science have already superseded the debates I'm involved in. My current university has a new nazi degree starting so good time to leave Aidsfalia for a while. There's a nice position at the university of iceland taking applications atm, so maybe I'll end up there. Bye.

i moved to the central valley and outside stockton there's a white flight tumor looking burb called Lodi keeping the settler flame alive. mom's out visiting and she's into antiques and driving by big empty houses, so Lodi it was. in one shop i found some 50s pyrex... up till now i'd been using old 1L HDPE yogurt containers, but i'm a big boy getting married soon. so i went to check out and there's a little person working the counter who said they were great pieces, and that i should trust her, because her friends all call her the "pyrex whore". my mom was there and the lady went on, "yeah i have one set for using, and one set of these just for display". my mom was like "well i guess they don't call you the pyrex... queen for nothing" and she was like "pyrex whore".
