Sunday Funday

Yeah, no writing yesterday because I was working to fix a problem that someone else should have been following while I was away, and really isn’t my responsibility, either. So it goes. I’ll keep doing what I can to help even if I’m really frustrated.

Best friend from high school turned me on to this.

My responses to this, especially with the first few episodes…

  1. I wonder if some of the neuroscience stuff might of be interest the docs at Georgetown. A lot of the research cited is involving how a child’s brain synchronizes the various elements of language to learn to read. I’m wondering how the decline of my vision is affecting my language. It’s very difficult for me to read at this point. I do listen to lots of things, but reading something is often just an exercise in frustration. (Aside — The Substack app would need to improve to suck when it comes to reading on an iPhone SE screen. I can enable zoom to help some, but it’s still frustrating. So, too, are the things I’m trying to consume as a freeloader that don’t allow you to listen to an ep unless you’re a paying subscriber. Cluestick — I might wanna read your stuff, but that doesn’t mean I’m sure I wanna pay for it. If I like it, I will, of course, but…) In some ways, this would be of more interest to me than whatever effects the various psychotropic substances would have on me.
  2. The podcast would (have been?) of great interstress to my mother when she was completely cogent. (That’s where I was end of last week, and early this week. I did send the podcast to her, but I’m not sure if she’ll be able to listen to it. Kind of wondering whether digging into something she was working on when she was healthy. The Bush Derangement Syndrome afflicting one of the teachers who was completely against My Pet Goat until her kid was diagnosed with Dyslexia. I don’t know if she’ll get a chance to listen to it, but I’m wondering if something like that might spark something.

Had other interesting discussions about current events. Even more is coming about the disaster that is the Libertarian Party.

Just turn it off, and you’ll be more content.

I still have no idea what I’m going to do when it comes to November. At this point, I think I’ll probably end up writing in someone for President. Vice President isn’t something I can really split on the Virginia ballot, but voting against the Vice President would be very high on my priority list after seeing this.

It ties back to the suspicion I’d said a few weeks ago — that there’d be people who will find some way to pin what’s going on in Haiti on the US.


But it’ll fit in with what I wrote about recently; right about everything all the time. All along.
