Feeling Much Better

Song: “Hit Me With Your Best Shot” by Pat Benatar

Mood: 6.5

I slept well last night and woke up feeling pretty well. My headache is gone. In its place is a faint echo of… something, but it might just me my imagination.

I fell down the Wikipedia rabbit hole today. I’m not sure why, but I had the word “synapsid” in my head and couldn’t remember what it meant. A quick search brought me to a page with creatures dating back 300 million years, which I then followed into each of the geological epochs, extinction events, oxygen crisis, platypus (don’t ask how I got there), Quetzalcoatlus, birds, early mammals, trilobites, various other sea and land creatures, and a brief skim over the big events of the past four billion years. I caught myself with my mouth hanging open a few times. When I was a kid, I really liked dinosaurs (I think most kids go through a phase like that) but the information we had at the time was nowhere as extensive as it is today. Wow.

After I spent far too long reading Wikipedia articles, I got up, stretched my legs, and went out to the garage to do some more tidying/rearranging and put up the blankets to make my little welding cubby. It all went together quite well and I’m glad I did it today because it’s supposed to be really hot tomorrow.

Speaking of tomorrow, FA will be coming over in the morning. We’re going to look at her Raspberry Pi and see if we can get it set up to be a security camera. I’ve done it a couple of times before for my own stuff so it shouldn’t be too much trouble. Plus, I think she’s bringing over some weird cheese to try, so that should be interesting.

My mom called this afternoon and we had a good chat. Everything is good with them and Mom’s enjoying the weather. I really wish I could just hop in the truck (or on the motorcycle) and drive out to see them. Soon, I hope.

Stay safe!
