We had one of our bathrooms rebuilt and it came out so nice that the rest of the house looks even more fucked up than it already did.

I want to be Segata Sanshiro when I grow up.

I can't fix the garbage disposal. It is beyond me. I figured this out hours ago and moved on, but didn't want to leave anyone hanging on this important happening.

Today I will attempt to be handy and fix a clogged/jammed garbage disposal. I have about four ideas about things I can try and then I'm calling someone to come save me.

Still chipping away at all this game collection tracking business. It's inspired me to dig through my garage and the sorting/resorting combined with donating a bunch of old clothes means I have a lot more room out there now. Also found a lot of games I kinda forgot I owned?

There are still some aspects of this service's data quality that really bug me, but it's better than most. Data's hard.

Tired: this button when I first got it.

Wired: this button right now.

We went to the beach, bought like nine different kinds of flavored taffy while we were there, drove home, stopped for lunch/dinner on the way home, and made it back in time for a nice breeze to pick up.

Nice when a day actually works out and goes well for once. Fuck, did I just jinx it?

I so don't have time for it, but I keep thinking about trying to learn just enough GameMaker to knock out something real bad and amateurish.

I can't find the box that has my Neo Geo Pocket Color stuff in it and I'm running out of places to look.

Now I'm spending time talking to people who maintain data for video game collection tracking sites and trying to convince them to bend their data to better fit what I view as THE ONE TRUE WAY. Yeah. This is definitely a great use of my time.

Though I've gotten better at picking my battles over the last five years, that just means that I internalize everything when I see/hear bad ideas popping off in my vicinity.

The more I dig into the different game collection tracker sites/softwares out there, the more I want to just build one.

I saw the Grand Canyon today and holy shit that shit is crazy. They let you walk right up to the edge and I'm not normally terrified of heights but something about standing on loose gravel at the edge of the grand motherfucking canyon seemed like a baaaaad idea.

One section was closed because of an "emergency" and I can only imagine what that might mean.

(I don't know if I would actually recommend the service just yet, though. The way they charge for each little piece of the puzzle is kinda maddening.)

Welp, I signed up for another "track your game collection" sort of service. This one seems to have improved a lot since I last looked at it, but my data import went a little sideways and it looks like I'll have to manually match a lot of games to their data. Also they seem to be missing some stuff.

Anyway, here's this mess of a list, if you care. It'll look better if/when I clean it up! is available.

I think I post domains this way to free myself of the responsibility of buying them.
