Wet leg, kyle ranson
Took the kids to baseball, made dinner, all by myself but i had help. The burger place closed
i was afraid i would lose my license
Hayward dmv was cool
the guy had a hat that said oldies car club and the bull was scrunched up like anthrax – he told me i should work there
so i’m afraid tommy lee jones is going to pull me out of line so he can show me some of his techniques
ignoring disabled people all the way up to euthanizing them are on a spectrum together (like the way microagression and out right aggression) are both kinds of discrimination

Reading op-eds, cooking borscht and wading through unpredictability
There’s a good article in the Times today about how immunosuppressed people like me remain at risk for covid even after vaccination, booster etc. It’s scary and presents big problems for me that aren’t going away.
I think People like watching sports because It’s something that has never happened before.
Everything is happening for the 1st time ever, and in sports its the same but it goes into the record books.
Its unpredictable… within a tightly regulated framework: the Rules.
Navigated by highly skilled individuals. One swing of the bat or the golf club is much like another but the results are night and day
Maybe that’s why people listen to the What’s the Matter With Me? Podcast.
Or theres maybe another reason, cant be too sure.
Lots of shoutouts for the new year, to the people who sent cards. I can’t remember the lady’s name, but I would officiate the wedding.
Remote work is like, you get a good job, go in to the office, its normal, it feels like a success then one day they send you home, like “devote half your house to us and dont come back here until we tell you” and they keep telling you to come back and then cancel at the last minute all “two weeks- i swear! I just need two weeks to straighten things out”
Its coronavirus day 7,000,000, again. just like every day
Koko’s finally at Summer Camp. The frustration of being a disabled father during Covid-19 was intense. I have two hands but one isn’t very useful, leg is the same, so doing projects with either kid has been difficult. It feels like we’re about to turn a corner.
Getting My Confidence Back
I have been trying to get back the ability to drive again. I’ve been driving little drives every day. But yesterday, I drove 4 and half miles. I’m getting my confidence back.
Mel’s Shoe Clinic
I went to a cobbler, Mel’s Shoe Clinic in Castro Valley, to work on my AFO brace. He did a great job and it was a big revelation. It was fast, cheap, and easy, and I’ll definitely do it again.
Flip A Coin
June 1st, Koko’s birthday, is also national Flip A Coin Day. Go ahead and celebrate her belatedly.

Welcome to the What’s The Matter With Me? Podcast, “Paratransit Certified”
In this episode, I get certified for East Bay Paratransit. I’m fully vaccinated, and I’m ready to go back to the gym and the radio station after more than a year off due to Covid-19. Paratransit will help me get there. Shout outs to my art teacher, who steps in and gives me a little validation. I read some things I wrote down.
In this episode, we got vaccinated for Covid-19 at the Oakland Coliseum after hearing VP Harris had gotten involved there. The kids went with us, we drove up, it was easy, and when it was over it was a big relief. Plus, What I Had For Dinner Last Night and more.
