Wow. I’m not good at updating this blog at all. It’s been a year and a half with Arabella now. Not quite the same dog anymore.
It’s been so long since I’ve written coherent sentences that this post is kind of difficult to formulate.
So what’s been going on? Well I got free coffee at Victrola today on account of forgetting my wallet.
Apart from that… oh I know. I’ve been auto-domesticating super hard these past few weeks. I’ve spent such a disproportionate amout of time researching washer and dryers. I never knew I cared this much about appliances. Actually, I never knew there were so many laundry enthusiasts out there. I’m talking about people who post YouTube videos comparing this year’s washer against the one they got last year. I’m just glad my closet is too small for me to entertain the thought of exploring this, would you call it a hobby?
On the topic of laundry. These machines are basically irony manifested in machine form. To design a washer or dryer must take some real mental gymnastics. Imagine you’re a laundry engineer. You want this thing to clean and dry well. So this machine’s obviously gotta be all tumbly and knocking about and what not. Meanwhile your second objective is to make this machine whisper quiet. 🤨
Yea also, I’m getting back in touch with my DIY side too. I am so excited to crimp my own Ethernet cables this weekend…
Truly, as I get older, I’m becoming so easily amused.
