no assumptions?

so this happened: saturday night before they loaded me into an ambulance i said i wanted to squat and pee. the EMT said it wasn't in his plan.

he did, however, offer me both a bedpan and a urinal.

maybe i appear a little androgynous, and maybe this is just a courtesy of not assuming what kind of urinary apparatus a person has.

i hope it's that second thing, because simply offering both leaves no room for awkward corrections in a moment when you'd sort of hope you didn't have to go all gender conformity awareness on people.

2015 venture vermont, bitter pill

one of the items on the venture vermont checklist is to make an emergency kit for a camping trip or a hike and i pretty much keep the same emergency kit all the time, but tomorrow is the bitter pill and i have to check that i have my mandatories and shed the winter stuff for weight savings.

so let's kill two birds, eh?

here's my video that lists what's in my kit.

why i don't have any respect for caitlyn jenner

oh, seriously.

like i care about somebody else's gender identity or expression? she's finally gender matched and hopefully comfortable. yay.

the reason i got no respect can be summed up in three words;

kardashian. reality show.


'nuff sed.

discipline

i'm watching tv right now.

july is the month of dedicated watching of televised sports.

specifically, the tour de france.

because that's why i have a television.

oddly, bicycle racing is less exciting in the highlight reels than if you watch the whole thing. there are a lot of subtle things that only really become apparent to you if you see the whole thing play out, so for three weeks in july i watch the tour de france.

that's four hours of television watching every day.

i am exhausted.

banana pancakes

yesterday i finally made those things the internet was all excited about for a while.

these things.

if you think of them as real pancakes, they're not at all acceptable. but if you think of them as some other food thing that you might also use as a vehicle for maple syrup, they are moderately tasty.

and they provide a good way to eat a couple of eggs and a banana, so it can't be all bad.
