This Time For Sure

Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2010 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

I know what'll make everything better: self-loathing!

I would suggest chocolate as a more acceptable substitute. Possibly chocolate ice cream.

Hug and suggestion accepted! I have some chocolate upstairs.

I am a car that overheats if it sits too long without moving, as YT analogized in Snow Crash. I came downstairs and let a ten-year-old decorate my hands with henna -- rocketship and sun and stars and atom -- so I am no longer shirking my in-person sociability duties, and feel better. The flywheel, momentum, progress.
