The snack food that I have rotated to recently. Takis are life. Takis are love. All hail Takis.

I use rhythmbox on linux (Fedora) and use it to manage my old iPod. It works fine except when it comes to podcasts. For whatever reason, podcast management causes it to crash nine times out of ten when removing podcasts from the device. Inexplicable. Not sure if it's a driver problem or a rhythmbox problem.

Cubs baseball: not going to great. They made the league championship series (the hurdle before the World Series) somehow but are now crapping out because they issues they had previously are being exploited. Much more chill about this given the success last year.

So a couple days ago I got a note from The Internet that, essentially, I had 10GB left before they'd charge me for another 50GB of data at home. They said it was for the billing period through 10/16. Now, did that mean until 23:59:59 on 10/15, or until 23:59:59 on 10/16? The way they worded it wasn't clear, so I've been on the down-low for the last couple days. Dammit. Waiting for another popup thing saying that I'm almost out again or for one saying they've charged me $10 for more data. The suspense is killing me.

Still running around. I essentially missed a week due to a cold. Yesterday I ended up chasing some woman for about a mile. Lifting: I missed a couple weeks of things that could irritate my neck because I tweaked my neck, but that's fine now. I also have like an impingement or something on my right elbow which is also making overhead pressing annoying. It's been on-and-off for quite a while. Annoying. Benching works, though.

Sometime the wifing unit has trouble eating enough, but we discovered another calorically-dense food she likes: honey-roasted peanuts! Huzzah.

Trump is, quite literally, the worst.

I don't understand why in this day and age podcast management is still so shitting.  I still have to deal with "bonus episodes" that can only be managed as mp3s.  Why the fuck can't I check a "this is a podcast" checkbox and have the device treat it in a sane fashion!?
