Once again I have occasion to ask myself: why do I live where the air hurts my face?

Don't get me wrong I am all for more housing, especially if some of it is actually affordable, but I find it hard to believe any of it will *actually* be what I consider affordable. I was really looking forward to having a little dog park closer to me though

This is not at all what I thought was going to go in this parcel of land. Did I totally dream that they said a dog park would go in here? This "park" depicted in the flyover is just a tiny patch of grass? 1011now.com/2023/01/26/city-se

USPS has always delivered my mail between 4-5pm in the 14 years I've lived at this house

Just this last week it has switched to 10am. I wonder what changed?

Me: [singing louder than I intended to while looking through the pantry]

M, our student from Brazil: [appears out of nowhere]

Me: [stops singing]

Both: [awkward pause]

M: You have a song about ... canning peaches?

Me: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ The 90's were a strange time.

Help me out, fediverse. How many of you feel extreme vicarious discomfort when watching particularly embarrassing or cringey scenes in movies or shows? Yesterday I had to turn off Cobra Kai because a situation made me so uncomfortable that it was negatively affecting my running on the treadmill.

Is that common? Which situations affect you the most?

I have spent my day looking at the ice building up on the lilac branches, unable to concentrate on anything else.

Thanks to @codacode for telling me the stuff falling right now is called "graupel"

When it comes to snowfall totals in , nobody ever went broke betting the under.

This is gonna be one of those "pretty but deadly" situations huh?

I remembered to put the car in the garage so the storm will probably be no big deal, you are welcome

I've been reading through several of the bills currently before the Unicameral and golly, many of these bills have ambiguities and loopholes big enough to drive a tank through. If I were an ornery lawyer I'd be giddy at the prospect of years of litigation.

Overheard just now: "I went to O'Rourke's last night, it's, like, a bar for old people"

I mean, she's not wrong, but 💀
