#5186: I always intend to take a nap when I get home, and I almost never do.

These early weekends are a pain. I wonder when that'll change? Or if?

Why, I thought this was common knowledge. Of course the Clinton Foundation is functioning as a slush fund for the Clintons! You don't think they'd go to all the trouble of setting up something like that and just give away free money, do you? These people are the embodiment of greed, for crying out loud.

So I'm hearing that the grrl-power Ghostbusters crapjob is going to suck, and I am 100% completely not surprised by this news. Reading the link to the synopsis, it sounds like an indescribably shitty movie.

So, yeah. Pass.

"This hat is symbolic of every pallid, limp response the Democrats have to the Republican Party. Instead of changing policy to benefit actual people, they make a Democrat hat to refute the Republican hat, equally false, and equally trivial." An excellent, excellent takedown of a stupid hat.

Keeping Win 10 off your computer. Yeah.

Apple Music eradicates music from your hard drive if it exists on their server.

It works that way by design.

This is one of many, many reasons why I have never liked Apple.

Today, I overslept in epic fashion.

Alarm was set for 7 AM. Alarm went off at 7. I hit "snooze". When it went off again, I turned it off entirely and said to myself, "I'll get up in a bit."

Next thing I know, text message alert is going off. It's my boss: "Where are you? Are you okay?"

Me: Oh Jesus.

While I was trying to cudgel my somnolent brain into formulating a reply he called, and I told him the sad tale. I ended up getting to work at 11 AM. *sigh*

Later, I told him: "The rule is that I don't turn the alarm off until I'm out of bed. Today, I turned the alarm off before I was out of bed, and overslept. That's why that's the rule."

Fortunately I didn't get in trouble for it.

In other work-related news, quarterly increases are out, and I've gotten another increase: double the minimum raise this time, which is pretty f-ing sweet. And I got it just in time for this next paycheck, which will be the biggest paycheck I've gotten since 2001 as a result. I can't argue with that. It's the overtime that put me over the top.

...and it's already earmarked for insurance and utility bills. *sigh*
