What's the opposite of FOMO? Choice paralysis? It's such a weird relief that I'm now in a place with nothing to do and no reasonable way to get anywhere else for a while.

And it rained torrentially this afternoon so my choice to stay in bed and not go hiking was totally vindicated. (Also I have a cold bleh.)


I can't lie, a hotel room ever once in a while is a niiice luxury. Just one night before my ferry out. Especially after a few weeks of hostels and couchsurfing.

(There are no hostels in Kavala.. but I still booked the cheapest thing I could find and I did NOT shell out for a sea view room with a balcony.. yet here I am.)


It's official. I found one christmas thing I enjoy. The only one.

Neo Yokio: Pink Christmas.


Some part of me still thinks all my problems are going to go away when I make it to an island but intellectually I know that's only going to happen if I leave my fucking computer on the mainland.

Still, I live in hope. The ferry sails tomorrow evening!


Madness also involves talking to yourself right, because I just said "oh haha that's fucking hilarious" out loud to this docker container in a restaurant* in like a regular conversational voice.

* The same restaurant in which I was cry-laughing at tumblr (RIP) screenshots earlier, but fortunately there has been a complete staff and customer turnover since then.


Madness is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. But this is also the only way I've figured out how to work with docker.

(I swear I must be a fucking idiot, this happens every week, please nobody hire me to do software development oh oops.)

Me: Okay I should find something intelligent to read while I eat lunch.

I finished the third of NK Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy last week. For me it was just so much about love, the diversity of love, how there are so many possible ways and reasons to feel and express and perform love (or not). We see familial love as a core theme of course, and reluctant love, unrequited love, love for [...] Sure it's about magic and rock-people and apocalypse. But it's the most thorough and detailed and diverse exploration of love I've ever read. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/broken-ea

Week in review: 3 - 9 Dec: Belgrade -> Thessaloniki. Hacking, wandering, writing, eating. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/week-in-r

Posted 62 photos: Unreasonably good views from the Heptapyrgion fort and Byzantine city walls in Thessaloniki. TWO vegan friendly surprises. What a day. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/photos-th

Posted 60 photos: A day of ambling around Thessaloniki, looking at old stuff and new stuff and the sea. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/photos-th

Posted 41 photos: A few days of cafe working in Thessaloniki. The city is huge and sprawling; chaotic in a nice way. [...] Streets are pucked with excavated old shit; Roman amphitheatres, Byzantine towers. Churches are varied and extravagant and quite a few feet down from the pavements, roads and blocks of flats. This is a city of layers and layers. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/photos-th

Fiiiiiinally. Now my problem is sun glare on my screen, which I've gotta say is a tremendous improvement over freezing to death. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/problems

Oh good, a bug on the staging server I can't replicate on my local machine. My favourite kind of bug. rhiaro.co.uk/2018/12/bug

#Vegan people take your b12 vitamins! I was just at the doctor and got the results of a blood test (which I took because I feel sleepy all the time).
Although I occasionally take b12 pills, my b12 levels are at the absolute lower bound of the acceptable range and my doctor said they should be as much as 4x higher.
I shouldn't have been slacking taking my #b12 pills!

business hack:

when writing a sentence, delete the "lol" at the end to sound very business like.
