It was too hot, and I was too lazy to ride last night.
I did manage to make a meatloaf with a lot of vegetables and some fake meat. I baked it in my air fryer to reduce the heat generated in the house. The 8″x8″ brownie pan I bought at Dollar Tree for $1.25, and which snugly fits inside the air fryer’s tray, is starting to look like a great purchase.
Once there was a Virtual Private Network (VPN) service called “Cloak” to which I subscribed. At the time I may have been paying $79/year, or maybe $99/year, for their service. Over time they changed their name to Encrypt.me, raised their price to $129/year, and then recently were acquired by a company called StrongVPN. When we all stopped going places thanks to the pandemic I had little use for a VPN because I wasn’t using public hotspots, and around that time the service provided stopped being so reliable. Last year I considered canceling the service, but decided to stay with them. Well, August 1 would have been my renewal date, but I decided $129/year is too much, so I canceled. Wouldn’t you know the next day I received an email from a “Customer Happiness Officer” offering me a 50% discount to come back. Why do so many businesses — health clubs, cable/satellite tv, phone, security services — shit on their current customers until they quit?
I solved today’s Wordle in two attempts; my starter today was STORM.
