Mar. 7, 23: Routine, Quest, Laps, TV, and Games


[Aw, man! Between "sleeping in" and chatting over on Discord, I've already blown my PIMP meeting in half an hour and I'm only just starting on this post. 😱 ...Not too bad, got about five hundred words, but far from finished...grrr, going to have to divide my attention.]

Got to bed around nine thirty, so not too bad, but was up no less than five times during the night. 😭🤬 I moved out to the couch around the usual two thirty but did make it all the way until quarter past six for nearly nine hours. Somehow, though, I dragged so hard after lunch that I crashed out for like a half an hour or so. 😭

Did all the usual morning stuff: a little curation, a little token shifting, catching up on emails and Discord pings, all the normal things. I did decide to be a little saucy and started a conversation with Hivewatchers. It's unlikely to affect anything, but I do have a stake in what happens around here, so I felt like I needed to say something. (Here's a link in case you might want to follow it:

What can I say? The markets have been looking pretty ugly the last few days. I suppose it could be worse, but it's never fun to keep losing money...speaking of which, HIVE looks like it has no bottom right now, free fall to $.35? I'm not very optimistic at the moment anyway.


As usual, spent the rest of my morning working on my post. However, unfortunately, that was about the extent of my accomplishments for the day...honestly, starting to feel that existential angst.

I was even thinking that I've lost my mind...not in the sense of being crazy, in the sense that I used to be depressed and unsatisfied any time I wasn't working on trying to tease out some kind of big idea; now, even when I want to, it feels like my head hurts and my tummy starts churning and I can't even find an idea to think about (and when I do I'm just rehashing the same things...just spinning my wheels).

My one goal for this lifetime was to have an original idea (even better for it to be an influential one), to purchase my immortality with the currency of ideas. It seems like the new equation of exchange was it, but all that has amounted to has been me paying to keep a website alive for the last ten years or so.

I do have the two omnipotence proofs, but those have come to a couple Facebook posts that got a like or two...

I suppose I could go on, but I just feel like I'm feeling sorry for myself (first world problems) at this point...meanwhile, there's nobody to blame for it but me.

Anyway, like I said before, after lunch I crashed out for about half an hour (which didn't actually make me feel any better - consistent with what I just said) and then I'd basically already wasted the first half of the day, so why not just blow the rest?

Played a few rounds of Beat Saber and then played out the rest of the Quest's battery on Star Wars PinballVR (which wasn't all that long).

[Dammit! Only have five minutes until posting time and only just broke a thousand words...hate it when I have a nothingburger day and have to try and make something out of it.]

Spent the rest of the time until Wenche finished work just messing around on the phone watching YouTube videos, chatting on Discord, and playing a little WombPlay (but I didn't complete my challenges for today 😭)

Speaking of which, the Dungeon Master Season is about to finish. I did get a couple packs this time, for whatever those are worth, but I'm looking at forty days of clicking buttons for a whopping sixty cents...I'm at least twenty buck down on this one, going to take one hell of a long time to dig myself out at this pace.

Today was taco Tuesday and Wenche made us turkey tacos for dinner, after which we plopped in front of the tube. The new History of the World: Part II just came out and we were starting to watch that when I surprised that she'd never seen part I. 😱😧 Of course, we had to fix that right away!

Once that finished up, I got ready for bed, but I still had six thousand steps left for the day. I felt too guilty laying there watching TV shaking since it wasn't making up for being ripped off, I really hadn't moved around that much, so I did laps around the house for about an hour or so to finish and we never got around to actually starting Part II.

I put on some Letterkenny and actually made it through two and a half episodes before falling asleep really late.

Well, another one dollar day for my Splinterlands rental income. 😥 I suppose it's in part due to the falling price of HIVE but I'm just sitting on the DEC for now either way (swapped out just the other day anyway).

Still enjoying the pre-pay ease and claimed my interest for the day, all of which I was able to save up to swap out, but I have a ways to go yet.

I'm not really sure what happened with that new rental fee, as far as I can tell nothing really changed...I guess that's a credit to Splex?

Holy moly! I spawned a couple students the last couple days and a technology as well today, so it seems the popularity focus is starting to pay off too...not exactly clear what to do with them, will probably have to ask Eco. I think it's best for me to leave them and monitor the student debt, but I dunno.



So far, the income has only risen by about two or three thousandths of a HIVE, but hey, more for Solairitas is more. ☀️😊


Went in a couple times on Rising Star again today! That's like three days in a row of multiple missions. 🤯 I guess, at the same time, my real world productivity has gone to zero...that's the tradeoff, eh?

Can't seem to shake the drunks but I'm pretty much expecting that I'll need to run lessons here imminently after they're gone.

Another day, another recycled balance photo...maybe I should set a threshold for how many more words to suck out of this before I just pull the trigger and get what I can get. 🤔


I pulled out my usual thirty-five this morning, but for now just holding. Not that I couldn't use the liquid, but my vision is blurred by the precipitous fall in the price of HIVE [and I'm too behind to go in and worry about it right now].

Seems like my daily rewards have been pretty stable at these increased levels. Not sure if the percentages changed or if my stake increased by enough to explain it, but regardless I dig. 🤑

Man your pimpin’ cover images catch me every day and it is good to catch up with you every morning.

Looks like sleep is normalizing!


That talk you had was quite interesting, they seemed to be determined to be right without arguments, it's good that someone decides to confront them once and for all.
