I'm having a breakfast bootstrapping problem: tea and toast is insufficient, but for something better I have to actually cook, which I do not have the energy to do. I am also irritated that the actual meaning implied by pulling yourself up by your bootstraps (which is physically impossible) has become a phrase we use to imply that people should be able to launch themselves with nothing but a little energy. Like how "cut him off without a nickel" has is a nonsensical mutatation from the reality that makes sense, which is similarly, though less intensely, vexing.
I have entered the phase where I need to Make All the Things for my next show(s), especially since I remembered that at The Make Sale I have a full on 10x10. The replacement laser is here, and will hopefully work out of the box, but isn't set up yet, which I really can't help much with given the state of the ankle, but at the same time I don't want to put to much pressure on S while he is dealing with a bunch of his own stuff.
My dog is a silly floof:
