Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.

Don't take me too seriously.

This is how it starts.

We just watched the lower-middle class take a gut-punch and more are coming.

Those jobs aren't coming back.

Not could, will.

It's a feature, not a bug.

Not normally a Bo Burnham fan, but this is hysterical.

Country music and its fans are gross.

First day of Physical Medicine and Rehab (PM'n'R) today. I've never had my form for various exercises critiqued so thoroughly. Truthfully I'm excited to go back. My physical therapist has been helping people with spinal injuries for almost 30 years and has stunning reviews, hopefully things go well.

There is this super strange sense of relief I feel with regard to all of this back stuff. I have a problem that can be given a conclusive differential diagnosis and effective treatment. I have a problem that can actually be fixed. I have a problem that can actually be fixed.

Excited to say the least about that.

Bad body day otherwise. Early appointment combined with muscle-relaxer wean makes for a sore day.

Take care of your meat-wagons hubski.

Stop hiring administrators that cost double the salary of teachers.

That's childish Bfx.

You should go work real hard until you sit on the board of directors for a drug firm.

Mature subversion and all that.
