    ... good to hear? What did they do to get disowned if you don't mind me asking?

    EDIT: Too personal, will leave it at good to hear and I hope everything is okay.

    tomd: midterms are over sort of, i just have an essay left but its not due for another 2 weeks, and its an easy A class so.

    feels relaxing and nice to be passed it with no failing grades as of yet.

    "Hey BTT, some dudes will be working in the yard tomorrow."
    "Yeah OK, no prob."

    TOMD: it turns out there is, in fact, a prob, because they've cut through the internet cablr by accident. It's a mystery if we'll get the cable company to fix it today, but I presume that it'll be an internetless weekend+ for me.

    Best kind of accidents are the type that fuck your entire weekend outside and you couldn't even help it.

    TOMD: Discovered AO3 offers backups in the confirmation email when you delete a story. Just restored the opening chapter of Auror Potter and the World Against(that 8-arc super story from a while back) after my December meltdown. Now if only I could nail the next chapter... hm.

    Well, Jesus, if you can't feel good about your writing, who here can? Take a step back and realize that you are exceptionally good at what you do, mate. That doesn't mean you'll become a superstar, but it does mean you should be proud of going further than what 99.9% of people are capable of.

    Also, you should look at your teenage Ocean's 11/Kingsmen/Oliver Twist scenario again. That was fun, and practically begging for a screenplay treatment.

    Thanks, mate. Heading back to that one after I finish the draft of my teenage Groundhog Day/serial killer/thriller story.

    TOMD: I posted those steaks I cooked to r/sousvide last night, and Kenji J Lopez-Alt from Serious Eats gave me some feedback. Made my day before I got out of bed:

    Got a new computer so I have to go through the process of installing all the games and software I'll need.

    On the other hands I get free trials to a bunch of said software.

    I don't think you're meant to look at this as a positive thing...

    TOMD: inadvertently punched three women in the tits. Every single time it was because of my enthusiasm in hugging a dude.

    Siri, what does Freud say?

    As I imagine it...

    "Heeeey, duuude! Long time no see!" [Otters throws arms out exaggeratedly for an impending hug, landing punches in the chest area.]

    Otherwise, I, too, would like to know.

    DR is enthusiastically taking notes. Plausible deniability is important.

    TOMD: Had a derivatives midterm that is 46% of my grade. Shoved my face to the grindstone studying, and still didn't feel prepared only to get there and learn we were allowed a formula/cheatsheet. Proceed to stress the fuck out. Twenty minutes later, she arrives, notices my lack of sheet and my shaking hands and says to email her so I can take the test later in the week with the five people (yeah) that called out sick and need to take it later in the week.

    TomD: Furnace is officially dead. We've had the furnace company out 3 times since August, and then yesterday it started pumping oil smelling air around the house. Our furnace guys have said they don't want to work on it anymore, because at this point if anything goes wrong it could come back to them.

    Having already re-shingled the roof this year we were expecting the furnace to hold out for another year or two at least. Most unfortunate.

    Happy Thanksgiving though I guess, right?
