    Computer been busted for 2 and a half months now. Had to get a chromebook to get some writing done and post, and have to use data.

    My brain does the weirdest shit sometimes.
    A little-known fact about PTSD: even when it’s ‘managed,’ it can affect your ability to concentrate and focus in entirely awkward ways. In my case, this often means losing concentration when there’s background noise, getting distracted, and visually blending words, sentences, and lines together when I’m struggling to focus. Blame hypervigilance and its many little cohorts.
    Stressful? Very.
    Annoying? Definitely.
    Amusing? Sometimes.
    This is one of the funny moments. I’m doing research on TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) for the next chapter of Shifting the Paradigm, specifically looking for details about common materials used for cranial plates. (...I may need help.) I hit a generic article, beginning...
    ...and I began scanning down the bullets on the list. I stopped – THAT doesn’t sound right! – I double-checked.
    ...yep. I seriously managed to read
    Haemorrhage;  and
    Disorders (e.g. Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis) and visually combined them into Hemorrhoids. The funny part? There are folks I know IRL for whom TBI by hemorrhoids could be a valid threat...because...you know...they’re such massive buttheads.
     
    ...I’m gonna shut up now.

    I will be very happy when July 31st gets here.  That’s when the extra $600 a week for unemployment finally expires.   That may sound horrible, but I’m on the opposite end of that.  I have worked through this entire thing, and the only applicants I’ve gotten for my critically short staffed store, have been applying for the unemployment requirement that they do so.  Have only had one day off since November 14th.  ONE.  Plus, I’m already on schedule for a minimum of 80 hours a week, and if anyone calls off, I get to cover it.  Because I don’t have enough staff.  So my average work week is more like 90 hours or better.  Awful damn tired of people working the system.

    Ten questions I'd ask various superheroes if they were real:
    1. Squirrel Girl: What are you going to call yourself when you're forty?
    2. Black Panther and Aquaman: Shouldn't you guys be, like, at home settling trade disputes instead of running around in tight pants?
    3. Martian Manhunter: Suspenders with shorts? Is that a Martian thing?

    5. Iron Man: What do you do if you have an itch?

    I have progressed from starting stories and not finishing them to not starting stories. Well, ok, regressed then. Which is a shame as the next unfinished one would have been about a guy finding out his Mom had a twin after finally meeting the rest of the family (after his Mom’s falling out before he was born). It’d have been dead pervy as there’d be an attraction on both sides.
