Brain mush

Another groggy morning, another night of poor sleep. This shit is getting old. It’s downright debilitating – my brain is mush and my mood is, well, not good. Happy Memorial Day weekend.

At least I’m not flying this weekend. The news coverage of airport lines on Th and Fr looked like a real shitshow. Don’t need that.

I started watching Citadel on Amazon, and I really wanted to like it. I just can’t get past all the stupid. An injection that encodes all your memories up to a point and then restores them for those with amnesia? A computer file with all the launch codes for all the nukes in the world? Stanley Tucci as a master hacker who can access any computer system from his van or the wilds of Wyoming, no matter how strong the system’s protection? All these plot devices are really bad. I might watch one more episode (two under my belt so far), but if they introduce one more stupid idea, I’m out. I would probably be better off watching Succession, anyway. See what all the hubbub is about.

I’m with Tiedrich today – most days, actually. Biden should just instruct Treasury to pay the nation’s bills and ignore the debt ceiling bullshit. I would love to see the wailing and gnashing of teeth when that happens. Don’t negotiate with terrorists.
