  1. Just learned that the company changed what is considered overtime on me so now the schedule I’ve been working for three years includes close to twenty hours of time and a half pay, while I’m trying to qualify for ADU. Whoops?

      • Just woke up from a dream that Elon Musk had developed a portable oxygen bubble that you could activate from your phone on a subscription model and on the day it launched the service drained the earth of all of its oxygen due to a programming fault, which led to only the people with the subscription being able to breathe and most others dying. Wrote every detail down because it’d make a great satirical disaster film. Back to sleep with me.

        • I'm doing an anti-"No Shave November". Usually I shave myself every two weeks but this month I try to shave daily or every other day. My verdict so far: Daily shaving is not worth it as my beard grows so fast that I can feel the stubbles after an hour after the shave. Waxing my face is not an option.

        • Plus there’s the town priest, his kid brother sidekick, the FBI agent who blackmails the main character into doing crimes for him, the President of the United States, myself who may or may not still be a horse from that one thing, the main character’s dead father, her half-brother… basically everyone except the main character and the local bartender. Aiming to cut that down at least by half once I have the resources, either after a successful television pitch or funding by some other means (Kickstarter?)

          • That sounds flippant - obviously if I had the time, money, and resources to find the very best person for these roles I would, because voicing 80% of the male voices myself - shockingly! - leads to a cast of people that all sound the same. The south Asian guy is gay and I also voice his boyfriend (a Republican congressman, because I’m inclusive :)), which means I’m also grapeing myself kind of a lot. I voice the main character’s best friend, who the south Asian guy hates, so on top of Fluffle Puffing myself, I also have to hate myself. It’s truly the worst form of MPD.

              • @zeldatra Jesus was a roman-era Hebrew, so he's pretty distanced from modern day Jews. He's also only half Hebrew since only his mother's lineage can be traced, so arguably you could cast anyone eurasian for the role and not be too far off mark.

              • @nerthos I’m not genuinely that invested in an accurate casting, I’m voicing a south Asian guy which I obviously am not, I just briefly thought it’d be funny to make my imaginary Jewish friend do it

I lost all tyre grip because a brown and slimy moist pile of leaves in the curve acted like it's the best replacement for grease in that moment. Luckily there was not much damage. My pants got dirty, a scratch on my knee, and the side of my pedal was heavily scratched.

Did my part, voted two weeks ago, the rest ain’t my problem. Gonna play Sonic Frontiers tonight, get back to making cartoons tomorrow, and then do my part again two years from now.

                            Brazil is quite screwed either way, Bolsonaro was quite disastrous, but Lula is downright horrid, ideology aside, any other option would have been better. On the plus side congress is stacked in Bolsonaro's favour, which means neither party can really do anything without the support of the other; theoretically this should mean they can only enact reasonable policy, but emphasis on "theoretically"
