This could be my my new theme song:



That seems to be the direction I'm going in.

Trying to come up with a method of releasing the pent up feeling

The method can't be academically or athletically difficult, financially expensive, dangerous, illegal, socially awkward or anything like that

Maybe just video games

39 nothing accomplished

People get steamy as they grow up. Why is that?

If only there's a lightphone that includes online messengers.

Without messenger, I'd be paying more just to be able to reply for messages.
I'm not one of those types with too many chatmates. I only have messenger for convenience.

For this post, I'd give rough estimation and conversion of my country's currency to USD.
Meaning, this is not precise -- the numbers might be a cent or 10, more or less.

Keep in mind that even if the numbers I mentioned here seem to be 10x cheaper, so does the "income" I receive.
I can usually afford to charge my prepaid up to 6 USD worth a month.
The longest plan lasts for 90 days for 12 USD. It's still not worth it.

No cheaper and better plan than 2 USD worth of 2 GB with no expiry date to catch VS 4 USD a month only worth of call and text that I may never able to use often.

A single text is 2-1 US cent/s with limited number of characters per message.
A minute call costs about 20 US cents a minute.

On average, I only message with my phone barely 50 times a day not including media files and how long each sending is. If I convert that into ordinary texting, that would be at least 50 US cents.

More in busier days, which is at least tripled -- which would then make it 1.50 USD worth.
Assuming I'd be spending around 2 USD worth a week, making it around 10 USD a month.
I'd be at least 4 USD short unless I have to take extra from my savings... :? It's either this, or spend only 4 USD a month.

Compared that to 2 USD worth of magic data without expiry, maximum 50 MB a day. Even if I spent all that 50 MB limit a day, it'll lasts for over 40 days in a row.

On average, I spent barely 1 GB a month and that's not even the bare minimum. This means on average I spend 1 USD worth a month and have a choice between stretching that further or cutting it short within a day.

Plus, I can actually choose save it for later and have it with me longer than a month because it has no expiry -- or choose to dump them all in a single setting, or take a few extras just for the media files... And not use a single bit at home where there's WIFI.

I'm not that impulsive, and the costs of communication during work at minimum aren't that demanding.
I just don't have that choice with any "plan" that expires.


Now unless the phone rates here are at least about ⅔rds cheaper... Or if my income is twice as big on average, I won't be getting a personal lightphone.

I have a big, tender gingerbread heart and I'd like to share it with all of you, this coming Oktoberfest season. :heart:

For about 2 months long now, my right side of my right thigh gives this tingling sensation whenever I lie in bed.
It's worse when my legs and torso are lying flat. Yet another sensation to mindfully ignore during bedtime.

In certain positions, especially if I'm not doing much, the same place is numb to touch.


Maybe a pinched nerve. Or something misplaced. It's nothing unusual in my case. I just encounter these new sensations from time to time.
Heck I have more reccuring discomfort and pain, just left unmentioned and this one is just new.

Should I be worried?

But then again, this might be just one of the many symptoms that I'm sure I shouldn't worry much.

Just like those headaches and backaches :roll: normal for aging, normal with hormones...
No sense mistaking my chronic and recurring respiratory symptoms for something like COVID. :roll:
Or that intense and neck pain, or that weird vertigo episode as if it's stroke or brain tumor.

Not that anyone can do much about it, really, if I told anyone about it.

I feel like I'm in such a liminal space with myself and my life and it's pretty exciting :) Long time I've been feeling like I'm just staring at a wall but then I looked up and there's a skylight I haven't noticed before and I can fly up towards some place I haven't been before. It's also spooky not knowing what's there, but it's just a relief to not stare at the wall right now.

The cool, calm stoic nature that coffee drapes over me.

My pets are on my mind.

My dog has been lying with me since Thursday without being fed or let outside.
He knows I'm sick so he hasn't complained.

Can he catch Covid from me?

How do people care for their pets when they're so sick?

The knee pain is gone. Let's see if the incontinence goes. Another month of welfare Cockney burgers starting on the next Welfare Wednesday should do the trick. I've lost 25 lbs over the past 6 weeks on the Welfare Diet. I'm back to eating the meat, potatoes and veggies right now. Late September to Late October will be another 5 week month.

Well, the truth has come out. Barb told me that I've lost weight because I've been eating smaller portions. I told her that I've been losing weight because my appetite changed when I moved into my new apartment and because of inflation. It's hard to eat junk food if you don't have an appetite.

I feel sad just thinking about it.
