Also, Jesus is imaginary and there is no afterlife

Since I’m not celebrating anything, and am lacking in family obligations, and don’t have to cook dinner, I was at a loss for things to do…so I got my genetics syllabus done, put together a quiz, reviewed the material for the first lab, and prepped my first lecture. I am such a good boy! It’s going to be especially galling now when Santa leaves me nothing at all this year.

    Hm. You can’t take a day off from work, because you’re in a salaried position, and you choose to not take a day off work because you lack family obligations.

    (There’s a well-known adage about idle hands, so no wonder you’re a good boy :)

    Can I cut and paste?

    Anyway, it’s about a paranoid man in his apartment. It succeeds in two ways. Merry whatever.

    I hope your class material is not as obvious as this now seems to be to me, as an adult. Of course, I was in graduate school before I fully realized and accepted this.

    Ate at my far-more-palettable sister’s place tonight where she made a nice lasagna. We exchanged gifts. Had cheesecake for dessert. It was a nice time.

    Tomorrow though… woof.

    fishy@2 Have you seen the Buster Poindexter video? (link omitted) I remember seeing this on MTV in the 80s and having a distinct “WTF did I just watch?” reaction.

    You have a lot of people who are wishing you well (and probably others who aren’t, but who gives a crap about them).

    If it helps, our lives would be diminished if you were not part of it.

    Merry, secular, Christmas!

    Browsing pics of abandoned places (thanks to your previous post), I spotted in a deserted living room the record album Christmas Day with Colonel Sanders. I found the Spotify playlist for lols. You’d smash the stereo if you were here right now, but it’s actually good pretty good.

    Merry Telescopemas!
    James Webb Space Telescope will launch in 12 minutes
    13.20 Swedish time.

    birgerjohansson@12 It didn’t blow up on launch, which is great news. Still a lot to be nervous about. I hope it works. $10 billion is actually not much money relative to the US economy (less than $100 per taxpayer), but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to get that much money together for a project like this.
