google play music, owned and operated by google, the search company, has a hard time surfacing the musical artist "The The" via a search query, probably because the band name is all stop words.
You'd think a search company would have a code path in place for exact matches regardless of natural language processed indices.
If they cared.
Love to have this lazer beam zapping my eyeballs from the side.
All my co-workers who were all "this will be great, we'll have windows!!!!1!" can have this poking them in the face all day. At least in an hour or so it will have moved on. Remains to be seen if in the winter I'll get the bounce from the shiny building behind us to the windows of the one you can see in the foreground and then into my eyeballs again.
If I thought my employer thought about me that much, I'd think maybe the never-cleaned windows is an attempt to ameliorate my pain, but instead I think it's just "welp, that costs money and staff don't need to see outside."

George has a new nickname, the Big Beaked Bony Boy. He's been losing weight he can't afford to, and we're not sure why, but it might be related to the fact that while the food is going down at normal levels, Mason is getting pudgy. Unlike in past "gettin' skinny" episodes, George is at least willing - enthusiastic, even - about nomming gooshy food, but we still have to be careful or he'll bolt it down then immediately hoark it up (and if we're not careful, Mason gets seconds).
A reminder of the importance of callbacks on known telephone numbers, rather than taking peoples' words who make your phone ring about whomst they are: https://www.cbc.ca/radio/asithappens/as-it-happens-thursday-edition-1.5316244/tech-law-expert-nearly-duped-by-very-very-clever-phone-scam-1.5316614
Also weird, a girl I had a crush on in high school showed up near the end. I say girl even though she'd obviously be a middle-aged woman now because she looked just like she did in high school, very weird. I said hi and that was pretty much it. Random people from my long past showing up is not at all on brand for me.
now it’s 45 minutes after I woke up from that dream, nearly 0530 and I’m wide awake throwback friday to when I could sleep through the night and not have days where I’d get home just after 1500 (at least I can leave early if I go in early) and NEED a nap and pass out til 6pm and then be wide awake again until like 0300.
Dreamt that I was getting ready to go to work and wanted a shower so I was getting ready for that when 4 friends showed up. I talked to them for a bit then about 20 or 30 people I didn’t know came in and my shower was in a bathtub out on a second storey deck but there were also a lot of shower heads out around the edge. The newcomers were using those (everybody wore underwear) and I told them it was my place and if they used all the hot water up I was going to lock them in the basement and burn the house down.
Seems pretty on-brand for me.
I was at my grandmother's house when the drought of 1998 finally broke. She had a big window over the kitchen sink and she stayed glued to it, watching the clouds grow darker and heavier. When it finally started raining, she raised both her hands over her head triumphantly and screamed "Let it rip!" A second later, lightning hit her house, causing the fridge to blow out, a ball of fire narrowly missing my startled mother
