Even though today’s weigh-in was decent, especially given that I have done absolutely no exercise since last Tuesday, August is turning out to be a shit month. In addition to suffering a leg injury this month, last night I carelessly went to lick a bowl and managed to chip a tiny part off one of my front teeth. It’s the kind of condition that no one else will notice, but I am considering calling my dentist, who remember I just visited last week, to have the damage checked out and potentially smoothed. Mo money, mo money.
You’d never know by the way I butcher the English language in this space, but I can be rather a pedant about certain things. One of those things, about which I have probably ranted here previously, is this country’s continuing ignorance of the notion of Daylight Saving and Standard Time. Whether or not you believe that artificially forwarding and reversing time by an hour twice each year does a damn bit of good is one thing, regardless you should know which one we are currently observing (the minute parts of the country that do not observe excluded) and covey this information correctly when communicating. Naturally my confidence in my bank was lowered when I read this in an email sent to me today: This information is accurate as of 08/25/2020 00:53:47 CST.
For fuck’s sake, we have been observing Daylight Saving Time since early March!
I propose we omit including the “D” or “S” from this time forward as an increasing number of people don’t understand their meaning and using the wrong one just makes you look ignorant.
Also, I wish there were a way that I could tell websites just what I think about political ads forced upon me in order to return some of the pain inflicted upon me by them. No amount of Trump ads will ever change my extremely low opinion of the man and allow myself to vote for him this November.
Hope you are not doing foolish things and are remaining happy and healthy.
Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 189.2 pounds (-0.6 from last week’s weigh-in); one of the very few positives that I have at them moment.
