Are you one of those rare creatures that hasn't spent the vast majority of 2020 more depressed and miserable than you've ever been before?

Have you not read any of his posts this year? He’s spent it in a ménage-à-trois, with breaks only taken to play board games, go for walks or take photos of the other two largely when they aren’t actually looking at the camera.

2020 has been the best year of his life.

I try and forcibly repress memories of people being happier than me, lest my jealousy turn into resentment or anger. And I don't want to be angry at René. It'd be like being angry at a puppy.

We've also spent the most time ever in the air. I've lost count of the number of flights we've taken.

But that doesn't really make me happy. I don't like the extra exposure to cosmic radiation and TSA radiation.

Basically what Joe said. I've just had the best Christmas of my life at the end of the best year of my life, much of which would almost certainly not have happened were it not for the pandemic. Based on what I read in the news and hear from most others, I know that makes me extremely lucky.

Not all others, though. I know at least two people who experienced 2020 as their most settled year yet and greatly enjoyed having all the paid time off work to spend on things like DIYing and video games (and enjoyed having an excuse not to see their whole families when they'd kind of rather stay home and play video games). :P

I mean objectively my year has been the same as any other year, just with less work in it.

But admittedly in my case "more time to be alone with my own thoughts" is probably the last thing I actually need, hence why I've felt so absolutely shit all year.

Calling me a "creature" seems a bit harsh. :P

Feeling that "Christmas bloat" extra fierce this year. Now that everything's over I genuinely don't want to eat a single crumb for 24 hours just to clear out my system and then sweep the house clean of any and all sweet, unhealthy junk.

Will definitely get back to a regular workout routine soon too.

Trying to help my mother-in-law resolve a problem on the point-of-sale computer at her work through WhatsApp. It's about 20 years old and still running Windows XP... :runaway:

Her employer should just get an old, cheap iPad with Square or some other POS app.

Just got done with the vet for Selene... she’s freaking over 7 pounds now. Every thing is good and on February 3rd she’ll get spayed.
