I think gravity enjoys trolling me. It is most definitely not my friend.
I’m getting a new desk. The choice was between a nice, solid, Ikea desk with drawers or one with built-in usb chargers and legs that could be raised up or down depending on whether you wanted to sit or stand.
I chose the one that didn’t require a plug.
I got my first Covid-19 vaccine exactly two years ago. It seems like yesterday. I accepted every booster jab offered to me after that. I’m sure this is why my experience of the virus last month was relatively mild although what “long-Covid” might bring is something I dont want to think about right now.
I stopped using Instagram ages ago but only recently deleted the account completely. Of course someone has grabbed my username and I don’t want to look and see what’s going on there now. Just a heads up to anyone out there who followed “stefp” before. It’s not me.
I’ve been Covid-free for over a week but I’m still coughing like crazy. Pretty miserable start to the year. There’s a new Yo La Tengo album out soon so February will be much better.
I think I’m done with centralised social media services now. If I ever do sign up again I won’t do it without an exit strategy.
We’ve lost a lot of music greats recently. Time trundles on and it’s too sad.
It’s easy to switch Mastodon servers and keep followers but how easy would it be to make this website my sole Mastodon account and bring those followers here?
Trying out that thing that starts with M again. I’ll keep Twitter going because I like all the nowplaying tweets and book tweets and seeing what folk are up to as there’s no sign of a mass exodus (yet). The idea that there are serious political debates to be had there is laughable.

I think I still have every CD I’ve ever bought. I did buy a bunch of envelopes once to try and sell stuff on eBay but I couldn’t be bothered with the hassle.
