• My caregiver is going on vacation for almost a week. We did a whole lot of cooking in preparation yesterday. Last weekend was interesting. On Friday night I got to go out to dinner with my Aunt and Uncle and my dad, and Monday we had a barbicue.

  • Mother's day.

    Yesterday I went to my sister’s for Mother’s day dinner. My nearly 3 year old niece was there, she’ll turn 3 in July. She’s finally started giving and taking things from me. I was already prepared for Mother’s day. I got my mom a card and a gift certificate to a local nursery on Wednesday. My 11 year old niece was with a friend. Not sure where my step niece was, most likely with her mom, since it was Mother’s day. My parents and sister and brother in law played cornhole, but didn’t let me play. Most likely because there was no one there to play with me, and if my 11 year old niece was there she and I probably could’ve played together.

  • Happy Mother’s day to everyone! I had planned to go to church this morning, and then celebrate with family later. This morning at around 7:45, my ride to church texted and said they wouldn’t be going, and that I’d need to find another way there. I called someone else to try and find another ride, but they never called back.

  • Yesterday my caregiver and I had a busy day. We went to the park and swung on the swings, of all things. After that we went to her house so she could give me her Keurig that she isn’t using. She actually got a new one, but she couldn’t get it to work. Afterwards, we went to get mom a Mother’s day gift.

  • On April 11th, 2019, Julian #Assange was arrested. Today is the fourth anniversary of the day I woke up to the news of that event. I still remember looking at tweets, and finding out via Twitter.

  • Well I’m just going to have to find these things earlier, or it’s going to be a long 10 weeks. Audio of the Vallow openings.


  • Not sure how she does it, but she managed to live tweet and transcribe most everything at the same time. If you’re thorough enough at it, the live tweets almost make a transcript. www.spreaker.com/user/pret…

  • Yeah, since the judge pulled the plug on live streaming in Vallow, we now have to deal with live tweets, and apparently recordings that are delayed by days. Not a great time for Musk to close the Twitter API and block my third-party client, but that happened last week. Yeah I can use the web interface, and I wouldn’t have a problem if this were my personal account, but when you’re trying to keep up with real-time, it’s slow.

  • Openings today in the Lori Vallow trial. Just in case you don’t remember, her kids went missing in 2020, this played out during Covid. She got married in Hawaii. Case is not being telivised so we get to follow via the old-fashioned way of Twitter lol. Why the Judge pulled the plug in the middle of the proceedings is beyond me. Meanwhile, I’m following a case out of Colorado. It’s expected to take two months. www.independent.co.uk/news/worl…

  • Good morning and, happy Easter. I’ll be going to church, and then celebrating with family.

  • Yesterday was my older niece’s 11th birthday. We went out to dinner last night to celebrate. There were about 15 of us there. We went to a local chinese restaraunt.

  • Yesterday I had my follow-up doctor’s appointment. The doctor wasn’t sure if I was actually septic, or had low blood pressure because of adrenal insufficiency. He said I probably should’ve been monitored in the hospital an extra day. Unfortunately my parents were there, and most likely didn’t want to come back to get me. I felt I had to leave right then.

  • Today I have a doctor’s appointment. It’s one of those after hospitalization follow-up visits. I’m not looking forward to it, but there are a few things I need to ask the doctor. Unfortunately they couldn’t get me in with my GP, so it’s going to be someone else.

  • Good things for the week.

    I haven’t done #3goodthings in a while. I don’t like the way micro.blog formats them, and I’m not great at markdown, but here it goes anyway, oh and it’s actually more than 3. 1. Doctors and nursess 2. Sudafed and cough supressant. 3. My aunt who picked up a prescription for me on Friday. 4. Antibiotics, but only when you have an infection.

  • I got sick on Wednesday. Woke up with a temperature of 101. Ended up throwing up that night and the next day. Couldn’t keep anything down, even water. Had to go to the ER. Turns out, I had a Sinus infection that had advanced into something like sepsis.

  • Pictures from last Tuesday.

    OK so I finally got the pictures from last week out of my caregiver’s phone. well, she sent them to me in a text message, and I was going to try to email them to me from there. However, turns out there’s actually no way to do that that I know of. Anyway, after trying to deal with iCloud drive and files and such, I just had her email them to me lol.

  • RSS reader questions.

    Can anyone recommend me an RSS reader that doesn’t limit feed items? I was using a Miniflux instance last year, until the service I was hosting with pivoted. I’d like it to be web-based if possible. Oh, and I don’t want my RSS reader to look like Twitter, but that’s just me, I’m old-fashioned, I guess.

  • My case ended today.

    This morning Alex Murdaugh was sentenced to two consecutive life sentences for the murders of his Wife and Son. This was a short sentencing hearing, the state did not bring fourth any victim impact witnesses. However Judge Neuman took his time issuing the sentence. He gave Murdaugh the opportunity to say something twice, and twice he said he was innocent. He asked him about the expression “oh what a tangled web we weave,” which he used during his testimony. Neuman asked Murdaugh what he meant by that. Murdaugh said, “I lied and continued to lie.” Neuman then said “when will it end?” earlier, a jurror gave an interview to Good morning America. He said it only took about 45 minutes to an hour for them to actually make a decision. [www.youtube.com/watch

  • The jury in SC V. Murdaugh reached a verdict a couple hours ago, after deliberating just 2 hours and 50 minutes. He was found guilty on all counts. This is the first verdict I’ve done with a caregiver on shift.

  • The jury is viewing the scene in SC V Murdaugh. The defense requested this on Monday. Closings will start after they get back from their trip to the property in question. Closings are my weakness. I usually always fall asleep during them. No, not openings, for some reason. Since I actually want to watch these closings, I’ll definitely be staying awake.

  • Tomorrow will be closing arguments in the case I’m following, SC V Murdaugh. Let’s see how long they go, the judge didn’t put a limit on the time for argument. Let’s just hope they don’t take like 4 or 5 days, like you know, that 1995 case.

  • Well I’ve been up since like 4 this morning. Had coffee already. Went to bed fairly early last night.

  • 3 Good Things February 24th.

    OK, I finally got over here to post 3 good things. Did it on the Mastodon instance I’m migrating to earlier. Yeah, I picked one yesterday, and I’m already migrating, lol. 1. Group Bible study. 2. Lots of food. 3. Sleep, because I didn’t get much last night. Woke up with a headache and was up all night.

  • Well, I did get up for the start of the case. Had coffee already. Just have had a headache all morning so decided not to post until break. Thankfully the headache is gone.

  • OK, I posted #3goodthings over on Mastodon, but almost forgot to post them here. 1. Morning coffee. 2. Shopping at Costco. 3. Finally picking a Mastodon instance.
