That’s a Lot of Email

I have had an incredibly productive day, but I didn’t do any of the things I needed to do.  Procrastination, thy name is .. something, whatever, I’ll figure it out tomorrow.

My spell checker thinks that “thy” isn’t spelled right.  Forsooth!

I took my car in to get a free second look at my brakes, which have been squeaking ever since I had they replaced with new pads.  That shouldn’t happen.  While I was in, they replaced a broken oil dipstick funnel.  Cost of replacement part: $1.31.  Cost of labour: $35.30. Total cost of free visit: $43.57.

It’s pouring snow here—it’s more like Calgary than Calgary is—they have no snow.

Did you see that new iPhone? Dang.  I’m going to feel extra super sad when I drop that beautiful creation in the toilet by accident.

I’m at 91% of my GMail limit.  In 2.5 years, 2.5 GB of mail.  Once I hit full, what happens? I’m dreading having to open ANOTHER Google Mail account. sigh.

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?

my gmail is at 95%. again. if i delete all the spam in the spam folder that usually helps matters, but i haven't been below 85% in a couple months, and almost always over 90%. i do wonder what will happen when it is "full."
