Today’s work was interrupted by some emergency couch maintenance. Need some new springs, but Ikea can only offer a whole new couch. I just need a few new $5 upholstery zig-zag springs for an ektorp, how hard could it be? Why should I dispose of a whole couch just to get a new spring? Bleh. Stupid capitalism.

Friends, don’t do as I did, don’t delay getting on the blower to book your 2nd dose. 4 days is too long, and I was lucky to get a booking within the required 6 week period!
Get on the blower!
(Also, I hope they hurry up and get their online booking sorted!)

The coronavirus vic page says to pre-register for testing, but few sites seem to use it? The Alfred does their own thing..
Self-administration of the test is weird? Like, it becomes :my: fault if the test returns a false negative, because as an untrained amateur I probably did it wrong.
Also, the Alfred test results claim ‘not detected’ (yay!) which is scientifically correct, but feels less confident than the ‘negative’ result I got in January from a drive-in testing site.

Ok, weird. Now the location map is doing the right thing and we’re all set 👍🏻
TUESDAY 25 MAY 2021 IS "INTERNATIONAL TOWEL DAY"
All Hoopy Froods are compelled to carry a towel on their person for the entire day.
In loving memory of the Revered Inventor of the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster,
The same man who discovered the exact reason why nothing on Earth makes sense,
And proved beyond doubt that the world is insane,
And who revealed the Answer to the Ultimate Question, of Life, the Universe, and Everything!
Thank you, and remember:

Had a job interview. Pretty sure I didn’t get the position, but maybe one that suits me will turn up in a few months. Does that mean I shouldn’t apply for something else? Or maybe I should try to get a position somewhere else that expands my skills that were lacking today? Maybe I just have no idea what I’m doing? Feeling very autistic and adhd today.
