I don't understand Subway's new menu. It's a bunch of prepackagable sandwiches (with no veggies 😿), I guess to make the Doordash delivery/takeout orderers happier with an alternative to Jimmy John's, but they made it take up so much of the physical menu space in store shrinking the real "Build Your Own" menu (the only reason to physically GO to Subway!) hidden into a corner.
Seems dumb. I don't get it.
Passenger trains (US 😿)
Today Indianapolis' Union Station is a "rustic" Crowne Plaza Hotel. I always find it a depressing reminder of passenger train lines this country built and then let rot.
I turned a corner I don't regularly turn when I'm in the building and discovered a tiny exhibit for one of the last passenger trains that pased through the building (the National Limited, ain't that a metaphor) which Congress killed (via Amtrak) DURING the 70s oil crisis. WTAF?! Depression becomes Anger
Last Night in Soho
It had a good runtime at least because that last bit didn't turn into watching the clock boredom like the last hour of Knives Out felt to me (or all of The Sixth Sense, for a throwback comparison). This really is just not my genre of film, sorry.
Last Night in Soho
It was fine. I guess. Came out of it feeling like how I felt about Baby Driver: a lot of the lego pieces were fantastic but the overall thing felt I don't know sloppy? In this case it was partly the fault of my usual problems with thrillers/mystery. I didn't enjoy some of the early parts because I was too busy solving it, I solved it too early, and I didn't enjoy some of the parts after that because I just wanted it to get past red herrings and admit I was right. My problem
I made Chicken Casserole Ramen again. (Stupid cheap filling meal from the soup aisle: packet of chicken ramen made per usual instructions inc. flavor packet finished off stirring in a can of [unsalted] Campbells Condensed Cream of Mushroom.)
Today I spiced it up with a ton of smoked Paprika, further sending it into Grandma's Chicken Casserole Nostalgia brain, and Gochujang for a slight confusing asian kick back out. This amuses me
They added Hot Wheels Spectraflame ™️ and I'm pretty sure there isn't a car in the game whose looks aren't immediately improved by Spectraflame Lavender paint job. (It's very sparkly hot pink.)
Forza Horizon thoughts that would be weird out of context
Also, I still childishly believe these are real roads in Australia and Mexico.
iOS quirks (-)
I don't know why I'm so vexed with this.
iOS quirks (-)
Hellfire! iOS keeps doing these super annoying word swaps even with everything disabled and switched to SwiftKey. Doesn't seem to be a SwiftKey feature, just iOS being iOS. Ugh. Stop thinking you are better than me predictive text. You are not!
Maybe I just need to go back to typing in all words letter at a time like some sort of a savage.
VB6 headache of the day
I guess to keep things DRY there is a single Private i as Long declaration at the top of the file for all 812 uses of an i variable.
Guess how that falls down? Did you guess that FunctionA in a loop tries to set a Checkbox value vbCheck which automatically calls the Click handler on the Checkbox with its own loops means that the FunctionA loop logic doesn't work because i changed out from under it?
Scope variables should be easier than this nonsense.
