    Well, I never expect anybody is 100% in the right, I'm not a big fan of rigid ideology because the needs of life don't conform to those sorts of structures. And when I'm mining gems of thought from a 2000 year old philosopher, things like the current times and what we've learned since ancient times are very much worth taking into account.

    If you're all about natural order, go to the zoo and learn from the bonobo monkeys. Life's messy, they know more than you do.

    I've taken to cross stitching snarky things to help with my dermatillomania.

    Im pretty happy with my progress as i get more used to it. The last one is the lastest and my first attempt at embroidery techniques.

    February 29 is a freak day, and it should be taken back to the basement dungeon where it belongs
    February 29 is that unreliable frat bro who promises to help set up your frat's party but never really shows up
    February 29 was created to show us that we take consistent, reliable metrics for granted
    February 29 is just there to move St. Patrick's day ahead one more day, giving us time to reconsider going all wild
    February 29 shows us that we do some sensible things with time, e.g. duodecimal, but we screw it all up elsewhere
    February 29 is all about February trying to be like the 30-31 day cool kids but it ends up looking like a dork

    The INFJ broke some fingers in his hand during a sword fighting tournament last week. I am trying to talk him into getting a really tasteful hook to go over his cast.



    So far my efforts have been unsuccessful as he pretends that he doesn't hear me when I mention said hook. It is very hurtful. I have also offered to roll him in bourbon and find a him a hat with a lot of character and a mysterious past. I hope my efforts will ultimately prove fruitful.

    I shall report any on new developments.
