Text Based 4 LYFE

I’ve been having a bit of an off week, as in when I get home there is literally nothing I am doing. Normally, I would hit up my usual haunts such as Monochrome, The WeLL and SDF. Oh and of course my own BBS, cos I ain’t rude like.

However, in my drained of life energy state, it’s been hard to not go to bed at 18h when I just arrived home. One would assume that I can fix this easily, which is not the case.

But having the chance to pop my head back on to my accounts here, I’ve regained some ability to pull myself back in to the realm of text. I’ve been here for a while to be fair, on sdf I’m sure it was the mid 2000s and mono, well, here ye go :

<ESC> E bitches

Like that kind of dedication, mind, not that many hours during that time, is nearly LiveJournal level.

If anybody has suggestions of text based boards or software that I can install on a wayward laptop with Ubuntu and extra time, I am more than happy to know.


A great start to the year

The usual new year fun of walking home as, although the RATP likes to shout that everything is free and easy to get home, it very much isn’t.

Not a single bus or métro runs near my house from the 1er, so lolz.

But to add on to this, my phone decided that life was too hard and completely died, meaning I’m slowly being locked out of accounts and unable to do anything at all.  Plus I’m completely uncontactable outside of my house, and for Whatsapp, just not at all contactable anywhere.  Happy days.

The irony is that I can’t even buy a new phone on a contract, since my banking app is tied to that piece of shit, it won’t allow me to authorise the transation.

So fuck you 2018, you’re already being a pain in the ass.

What Has Been Occurring?

As usual it has been a long old time since I have actually posted something on to this long running LiveJournal, I've had quite a bit on my plate so between being sick and exhausted I didn't have much time to function and think more than a crappy Facebook status or a report.

Sorry about that folks, so here is the run down.

There was a rather large manif on the 14 june over the loi travail being forced in to play by the government using the article 49.3 to force through an unpopular modification to the law.  Basically no syndicate agrees to it and it's got people pretty heated up as expected.

But then there are the casseurs who join in to protests like this and just destroy shit.  This was no exception and I woke up with lacrymogène in my room from where the police were having a bit of a gas and projectile volley with the casseurs.

Not really what I was expecting to wake up to on that day and it nearly made me late for work.  There are a few photos I took of the protest from my gates and the aftermath.

The next event was pretty much life as usual, but I ended up coming down with some kind of god awful virus and to further get in my way of being able to leave my apartment, I had an allergic reaction to my washing powder.  So here I am with the ritualistic vomits and covered in a rash head to toe.  I can't say that was the best time of my life, but we all have to deal as we go.

I'm also now on the job hunt as I need something more stable and less night based.  My sleeping patterns can't take this any more, if I want to be up during the day I need to either not sleep the day before, disco nap or go full nuit blanche in to the following morning.  And that is being far too troublesome to be healthy or allowing me to fully function as a human being.

This is why I have a particular urgency to rectify my sleeping needs, because try being in an interview when there is no functional language working in your head and baggage under your eye balls, it's not a recette pour succès as they say.

I still also have Madame K in the house, she's flying in and out of heat and her peak horny is between 2h-6am, so I am on the hunt for catnip so I can get her high as balls and to chill the hell down for at least one night of uninterupted sleep.  Because she spends all her time screaming her little face off to get some kinky time with any cat in the area, she ends up sleeping all day to then keep me up all night.

As for today, you probably guessed I'm playing the 'how long can I stay awake before I have to nap or can I continue my day as a zombie' game.  I'm not too sure of the success of this as I can't find enough to keep me occupied on television until I crash out.  Sigh.

Saisissez votre titre ici

It’s rather easy these days to post absolute rubbish to Anti-Social Networks at a simple flick of a screen, but finding time and content to put on to my blog, well that’s pretty difficult at times.

When I finish work I go in to a mode where I’d rather sleep or if I’m feeling particularly awake, rot my brain with a thousand channels of crap on CanalSat (because thinker make hard).  Of course rinse and repeat and I’m sat here laptop at my finger tips searching for something to put down since my last post over a month ago (excluding Instagram reposts).

Even dabbling with Kakao Story trying to find just an excuse to sit down, pause, gather my thoughts and recap a fixed time period on a sleek GUI didn’t quite cut it.  Then I tried Gratitude which simply asks you write down five good things for the day.  Having just done that, I managed the thought process for four.

I wouldn’t say a great start for that App, but I figured I’d try and shut it up as it’s been reminding me each day that I’ve not yet appeased it with greatness.

So I figured I would just do the usual thing, open the window in WordPress and just type nonsense in the hope something, anything would formulate.  Instead I’m writting an on going commentary on writing this post.  Oh well!

I’ve not had much time to really go out and do something random lately, due to scheduling and the scorching death ball people refer to as le soleil (having two settings in tan mode of fry and burn keeps me hiding in the shadows).  Which I’m fairly sure adds to the lack of interesting content to this situation.

Although I have been trying to keep up with poking at my BBS when I have the time, it’s kind of nice to drop the Web2.0 ball and tinker around with coloured text, simplistic menu systems and without any of the razzle dazzle of the web platforms made for those with FOMO or limited attention spans.  I’ve also kind of stopped riding my bike as often and putting off getting my brakes changed, which has of course meant I’m getting a bit rotund again, so time to get back on the 100km challenge again.

Hopefully that somewhat jumbled update on my life should suffice for you dear readers and of course future me looking back at some of the nonsense I wrote in the past.
