I had a job interview scheduled yesterday and the manager/interviewer wasn't there. A sign on their door said they were closing early at 7:00pm due to staff shortages.

"I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it." -- Mark Twain

edit: Actual quote is "Annihilation has no terrors for me, because I have already tried it before I was born–a hundred million years–and I have suffered more in an hour, in this life, than I remember to have suffered in the whole hundred million years put together." Found here

It was true that I didn't have much ambition, but there ought to be a place for people without ambition, I mean a better place than the one usually reserved. How in the hell could a man enjoy being awakened at 6:30 a.m. by an alarm clock, leap out of bed, dress, force-feed, shit, piss, brush teeth and hair, and fight traffic to get to a place where essentially you made lots of money for somebody else and were asked to be grateful for the opportunity to do so?

Charles Bukowski, Factotum

The philosopher Diogenes was eating bread and lentils for supper. He was seen by the philosopher Aristippus, who lived comfortably by flattering the king. Said Aristippus, "If you would learn to be subservient to the king you would not have to live on lentils."

Said Diogenes, "Learn to live on lentils and you will not have to be subservient to the king."

My 3 year old son learned the Greek alphabet. It was impressive at first, but now it just sounds like he's naming covid variants.

Ready to go home, even though it's been great seeing people and spending time with family that we didn't see for over 5 years.

Falling out, It's the end and I lose another friend
The cards are up, the chips are all cashed in
You won't see me again, don't consider me your friend
Falling out, look away, it's the end
