I walked into a lamp post with such force earlier that my neck hurts (not to mention the big lump on my forehead). I wasn’t looking at my phone or anything. I just turned a corner too quickly.

First time I’ve ever seen one of these, let alone the large number of them colliding with my head and writhing around in the grass as I got the washing off of the line. They’re called (I’m watching you there at the back so don’t even think about laughing) “common cockchafers”.

Sun fact: The sun isn’t a circle. It’s actually a tube, a bit like a long-egg (Google it). We don’t see it because, while physically large, it’s very light (mostly hydrogen) so it’s tidally locked with the Earth, showing us only the heavier, yolk-rich yellow side.

Ugh. The week is going to become increasingly insufferable as people lose their collective shit over the jubilee.

This afternoon I'm playing with webmentions again. I've decided to implement my own endpoint and migrate away from (which is fine, I just want to build my own).

I might make some kind of necklace out of these positive lateral flow tests though. Like giant teeth.

I've not had covid that long or that badly, but it can fuck right off please. I want to spend time with my family (who do not have covid).
