She just observed the blood under the microscope, my red cells die comparatively quick... I'm still not convinced that that means what she thought it meant.
Sounds like bull tbh. Speaking as a guy who regularly looks at red cells under the microscope.

 I had once someone in the clinic enquiring about what one of these "esoteric healers" had said about her son's blood. I had to explain gently that the whole idea didnt make much sense (and the pictures were clearly fake)

But the idea that the body is a mechanical entity that just needs a little grease to run smoothly is so tempting.

Veal and lamb are depressing as fuck.

Veal and lamb are depressing as fuck.
Veal is quite depressing, yes, but "lamb" as a term for meat gets stretched to apply to as large an age range as the seller can get away with. There's a lot of adolescent/adult meat that gets marketed as lamb because that's what sells. ...And also because some people legitimately don't know what the word "mutton" even means...

And even when the "within first year" official distinction of lamb is actually adhered to, there's nothing requiring the same awful living standards of veal.


Still though, veggies are usually a bit less ethically confusing. Usually.

Been feeling unwell of late. More so than usual anyway.

Constantly feel tired and sore, have had some odd chest pains that last a brief while and then stop, near constantly feeling hungry and hollow even when I've just eaten a meal. I've also been struggling to focus on things lately.

Some of it's probably just my depression acting up or the result of me being on a higher dosage of antidepressant, but some of the sore joints and the chest pains are kinda troubling.

Y'kno wut? I'm afraid of my family dying. Disproportionately.

I dealt with a lotta lot of death and such when I was a little kid, and I realized today that I worry basically every time they go out that a car is going to hit them as soon as they leave my sight or they'll fall in the pool and drown or some other highly unlikely absurdity. I dwell on it and mentally prepare myself for it, even. Get ready for a call at all hours of the night. That sort of thing.

Intellectually I know it's silly, but it makes me sort of sad. I live in a perfectly safe neighborhood, probably more so than most in the area, even. Don't think I've ever talked about it before now, or even acknowledged that it's not normal.

Knee aches considerably less today, still a little stiff around bends and stairs. Survived the hike to, from, and beyond work to the sushi store without much trouble, so it seems to be on the mend. Not really sure how expensive healthcare things are here in NZ sans health insurance (all I've got is traveler's health insurance, dunno what qualifies for that), and from my American background, just Going to the Doctor for a Thing You Want Checked is generally a Thing You Do Not Do.

On the bright side, my girlfriend's mom is an x-ray technician, so I know who to talk to about getting it zapped if I decide I need that!

In other news:
I bid on and won a pair of small PC towers for cheap (inspired a bit by whomever's tale of finding the free alleyway garbage pc), $60 each, with modest but respectable specs. I bid on one of them for my gal pal, but she politely declined it yesterday after learning they have no wifi cards and there's no going back on the bid. Maaaaah, I'll find something to do with it. Hacker attacker PC and Kiwi Factorio server?

Maybe I'll check the freaky Jesus tech shop to see if they've got a Linux-friendly wifi dongle. Or the PB tech next to it. And before you call me out on it, they've got a menorah in the window, it's cluttered to heck and back, there's a large screen monitor displaying proverbs next to the menorah, and there's some kind of Christian Rock playing at all times. The front door is open, but roped off, you ask for what you're looking for and escorted through the wastes to the thing you seek.

Also, they have a SHALOM van in the back.

Henderson is frigging weird, man.

Always fun finding out that you're not quite as "over" someone as you thought you were. Gotta make sure you don't get too used to not hurting.

I'm mentally exhausted. I've not had a coherent thought since yesterday night. I fucking wish that the world would just disappear right in front of me.

I'm tired of being sick and weak. I just want to play videogames, drink cheap hooch, buy plastic statues of anime characters, know my wife in the biblical sense, and pass out at 2AM on a Monday morning. The obstacles seem a little out of proportion with the objective here.
