A sleepless night. Entire playthroughs of Trout Mask Replica and Rock Island taken with two pots of strongly mashed tea. All is more or less well again.

On the Shadow Expert now. I must see these live one day. Their songs sound like: Morning have music morning making is me a very good morning. (If music were a sentence)

Still awake. Living on caffeine. Football: 1 - 0 up against 10 men. If we win I'm getting chips. If we throw it away I'm having a diazepam and a zopiclone.

John T

Phew! A 2 - 0 win but made hard work of it. I enjoyed my chips. Now to run them off today or tomorrow?

John T

Nearest rivals were also playing against 10 from 14 minutes. Took the lead three minutes later. Then thankfully somehow managed to lose 1 - 2! Yay! Also I did a run in the sun. Took tablets.

Limited contact with the outside world because I am feeling sick of being incapable of so many basic things. Wallowing in self pity. Tomorrow should be different but it can't come quickly enough.

(Backdated) Realised I'd missed a dentist appointment. Wondered why it had mysteriously disappeared from my calendar. It was yesterday. Did a run it was ok until I got chased by a dog. Took tablets.

It was only a training run. Just my first for nearly two weeks. I did ok and did a bit of stretching my hips and hamstrings before. I'll go again Friday if I have time because I'm too busy Saturday.

The photograph of a black hole makes me think how lucky we are by chance to be part of existence. Everything is special, magical, and so impossibility weird. Nothing we strive for ultimately matters.

Jeff M

Started thinking up a long response about how black holes are negativity, sucking up everything and letting nothing out, so by contrast we need positivity, and I got lost in my own logic and metaphors. Oh well, thanks for making me think!

John T

Metaphors trip themselves up. Basically stuff is trapped inside because the speed required to escape is faster than the speed of light.

It is nice escapism and a real thing! Although if Sheffield United don't win tonight things will matter again...

Thanks for the parenthetical note! I actually freaked out a little bit as I started to read that!

John T
01 Apr 2019 ·

That's ok Jeff (and they're actually called brackets). 😁

Lydia R
01 Apr 2019 ·

If we're going to be nitpickers, for me parenthesis is ( ) and brackets are this [ ]. :P

John T
01 Apr 2019 ·

Actually parenthesis are ( ), or any division of words - using other means - brackets is an umbrella term for ( ) [ ] { } 〈 βŒͺ, however, in modern standard English, brackets is the most commnly accepted term for ( ).

Lydia R
01 Apr 2019 ·

Why content ourselves with 'most commonly accepted' when you can have a great word like parenthesis? Common is boring.

Jeff M
01 Apr 2019 ·

This is a great conversation! I look forward to next week's dialogue on the tilde. I thought like Lydia that brackets were only square, but this site says parens are basically just round brackets, and thus I learned something new!

Oh, you mean a squiggly. The Earth takes squiggly 365.25 days to orbit the sun. It just means it's not exact...

John T

Actually I must correct myself... You should say squiggly 365 days in a year, and double squiggly open bracketsβ‰ˆclose brackets 365.25 days in a year. You're right though this is edge of your seat stuff!

Um I missed some thing fun. Also no one commented {unless I missed it} about the almighty curly braces and how if you have brackets inside of brackets you use different ones so you can easily see where they end and in this order {[()]}
