I’m staying up way too late this week. It didn’t help that I napped for about 30 minutes tonight. I was so tired after dinner I just wanted to lie down. That turned into the nap. I’ll probably be cursing myself tomorrow morning. It’s Thursday tomorrow. The long weekend is almost here.


So I have this thing going on with my right eye, I guess it’s specifically my right eyelid. I think it might be infected since it’s been sorta puffy and red starting on the weekend. It was probably at its worst on Saturday night. It was also tender to the touch and there were some crusties forming around that eye. Yeah, it sounds kinda gross. My actual eye doesn’t seem to be affected. It’s not bloodshot or anything.

It’s much better now though. It doesn’t feel sore when I touch my eyelid and the redness is gone. There’s still a slight, almost imperceptible puffiness to it but way better than before. This might be pinkeye but there is also a condition where the eyelid gets an infection and doesn’t affect the eyeball itself. It appears that most of these ailments can clear themselves up in a few days without any medical treatment. Anyways, that’s my latest medical update.


I didn’t watch the Super Bowl live on Sunday. I also didn’t see any of the commercials. Should I feel bad that I wanted the Patriots to lose? Congrats to the Eagles by the way. I heard there were a few movie trailers that came out during the game. I won’t bother seeing the Avengers one since I already know I’ll be seeing the movie, so why spoil it? I did watch the Solo trailer because you know what? I’m not sold on that movie just yet. I’m not sure if anyone really was clamouring to see that movie get made. Everyone wants to see an Obi-Wan movie but then Disney says, “oh ok, here’s your Han Solo film”.

Anyways, it’s a long weekend coming up, so I’m looking forward to that.


I received a letter from my primary bank today. They’re giving me two months before they’ll be charging a dormant account fee for one of my bank accounts. It’s a stupid account that earned like 0.0001% interest. It didn’t cost me anything to open the account and it was something I used to park some cash that wasn’t making any money at all. I think I might have made about $0.05 of interest in that account before I smartened up and moved the money to something with better returns. I never did close the account.

Anyways, fast forward to two years later and I get this letter. To avoid the dormant account fee, I can either acknowledge I know about the account or I can re-activate it. I didn’t realize it but I actually have $3.64 in the account. I think I’ll just take that money out and close the account. I’m never going to use it again anyways. That $3 might get me a bag a chips and a can of soda.


I pooped three times today. I wasn’t even suffering from intestinal distress. All three were normal poops, just all in one day. I’m not even sure where I was getting the ammo for all this pooping. I skipped breakfast, had a salad and a small cup of soup for lunch, and a noodle stir-fry for dinner. That’s all I ate all day. I still managed to poop three times. Well, I’m glad I was able to share that with you all.


Just randomly this evening my knee started to hurt. I didn’t tweak it, at least to my knowledge, any time before that today. I didn’t do any exercises that involved my knee at all and the only thing I did with my knee all day was normal walking.

Maybe it’ll get better in the morning? Maybe this is just me getting old?


At work today, around lunch time, an artist on my team sent out an e-mail to the engineers on the team, plus a few other artists. He was informing us that one of the pipelines for the art data seemed to be broken. The message itself wasn’t out of ordinary as we’re doing lots of new things. Less than a minute after I got that e-mail, I received another message from the artist, addressed to the same people, with the same subject line. The message body from the last message was still there, the only difference being the additional of a new sentence. I’ll paraphrase the sentence here, just so that I can protect some identities:

“I’ll meet you guys by the elevator, I just need to go take a massive dump in the bathroom first.”

Whoops. I immediately knew that wasn’t meant for the 15+ engineers on our team, plus whatever artists that were also involved. Since it was around noon, he must have intended the message for a few co-workers, most of whom he was probably on really friendly terms with. I kinda laughed but whatever, I’ve seen some pretty hilarious and unintended e-mails get sent out at work.

More than an hour passes and after lunch, the artist e-mails the same people again. In this newest message, he tells us the previous message was clearly not intended to go out to so many people and that he was extremely embarrassed. Too funny.


I’ve had salad for lunch every day this week so far. I’ll have it again tomorrow and it will be a whole work week of salads. I want to be clear though that salad for lunch sucks.

Today I skipped out on breakfast (I know, bad) and when I got my salad, I didn’t get any soup with it. I essentially just had a salad to eat all day. When 4pm rolled around, I was starving. I couldn’t concentrate so I had to go get a croissant from the cafeteria.

Salad life isn’t great but I feel like I have enough willpower to keep going for another few weeks.

I was told the name of the movie would not appear on the hotel bill
