    The significant pay bump soothes my conscience quite nicely.

    It's a bit shit, isn't it? But I want to see the damn plot! I need to find a modded version that gives you infinite energy.

    Eh, I don't mind. It's F2P. It'd be a different story if they wanted money up front and then had MTX.

    Looks like one chapter in my life story is about to start anew. I'm getting my porsche 944 back after it's sat unsold for the last year. And, the last year has not been kind to it. Body is quite dinged up, but I might make a summer project of it to restore it. I'm not really happy about it, but it is what it is. I was really hoping to never have to worry about it though.

    Didn't you give it to someone that chopped it instead or restoring it? I seem to recall you posting about that.

    It died on me 3 years ago and I brought it to the mechanic who I bought it from to begin with, since they work on those cars semi-frequently. It ended up sitting on the lot for awhile before getting repaired (much to my annoyance) but we've been trying to sell it since last year to no avail, since I didn't actually have anywhere to park the vehicle anymore (though I do now). There was one guy who was interested but his offer was a joke. Low enough that the tires on the car are worth more than the offer. So I'm just going to take the car back, for better or worse, and probably go bankrupt in the process.

    TOMD: I get a lot of updates about the weather on my news feed. I'm just amused by how increasingly dramatic the articles are getting about it.

    When it was snowing it was 'THE BEAST FROM THE EAST STRIKES BACK' to 'FIRE AND ICE: BRITAIN'S FUCKED'. Today's forecast:

    TOMD: I'm going to be using crutches for the next week or so due to a rather deep rather large puncture wound on the heel of my foot. Sometimes you step on something really sharp and it goes right through your (rather robust) footwear, and also your foot.

    No, but I was actually too stubborn to use them for day one. Now I know why those 3-legged dogs are awkward as fuck.

    I must have made quite the sight at the urgent care facility, hopping around refusing to use the "cripple chair" they offered me, and picking a fight over the merits of antibiotics in my situation with my attending physician.

    Said physician was kind of shocked at encountering push back that he couldn't immediately dismiss as "don't believe what you read on the internet." So shocked that he skipped to writing me a prescription and muttering about potential side effects (I have never experienced them from any antibiotics.)

    So, in sum, Gio's a difficult patient.

    I follow instructions to the letter once they're given. I just spend some time researching what those instructions could look like before hand. I talk to my physician friends who've gone through some of the top programs in the country so that I know what questions to ask. Medical research that gets published is also functionally open source so I'll go through that as well.

    So yes, I'm on the difficult spectrum, but the quality of outcome since I added those other steps to do what the doctor says has increased substantially.

    When a patient comes in with printed research papers in hand (with lines in the abstract highlighted - always for some reason in yellow), I sink lower in my chair. In practice, there's a huge difference between being able to access the literature, and being able to conclude what is actually useful versus dogshit spam. The layman is often unaware of that distinction.

    TOMD: Speaking of papers, my latest spinal paper has been peer reviewed with very positive feedback from a high impact journal, but they've got a few changes they want me to make before they accept it. Altogether not a big deal, except they've only given me 5 days to do it. Late nights here we go.
