I've got a strange question for you, #fediverse and apologies if this seems a bit forward.
I love my dog. Believe me, he is living his best life here for hopefully many more years. But I really need a vacation.
Are there people in the Netherlands interested in looking after Jazz for a few days? 🐶 Daycare is insanely expensive and all my friends and family have fulltime jobs/live in tiny apartments/have a million cats.
...and bathed. And really hungry. And too tired to cook. 😂
I really like gRPC and protobufs. 😀
But hey, I'm learning something new. One of my areas of expertise is WCF and gRPC looks to be a great way to start thinking about migrating the huge WCF SOA I wrote for internal use at work to a microservice framework. I get to take advantage of all the cool features of ASP.NET Core like DI and fast, async request handling.
So I think I'll run up a simple little roguelike gRPC client/server.
Of course, no one will use it bEcAUse MIcrOsOft 🙄
Third night this week I've been in bed by 7pm. #GettingOld
Got into work to a dead SQL server. Rebooted last night, someone (not us) made some undocumented changes to the OS and the DB server settings and it had switched query plans for one of the main sprocs to something dumb.
Pinned an old plan, no joy. Took down everything but the web app. No joy. Only by being a curious dev-DBA did I work out what had changed. Two hours to get it back on its feet. Utterly exhausted my team and me. Bleh. Bad start to the week.
Just had my first #yoga class. Well that and walked home, hydrating like a thirsty dolphin, then lay in a hot bath.
Why did no one tell me this is like getting high but without the rubbish side effects? Though I expect to ache tomorrow.
I am TERRIBLE at it, too, mainly because I'm tensing and overthinking too much (just like my therapist pointed out to me very early on). So, challenge accepted!
Slightly more compos mentis now.
To be clear, these are prescribed meds. I have Temporal Lobe Epilepsy and even though a grew out if it in my early 20s, it resurfaced a few years ago.
High fever can bring on dyscognitive seizures (absences) so rather than go back to taking Carbamazepine every day for the rest of my life, I pop Clobazam whenever there is a risk of seizure. Does the job by turning me into a zombie. 😂
“Most people know about fight, flight, and freeze — but another trauma response, “fawn,” is at the core of what people-pleasing is actually about.
To avoid conflict, negative emotions, and re-traumatization, people who “fawn” when triggered will go out of their way to mirror someone’s opinions and appease them in order to deescalate situations or potential issues.”
Woke at 4am to find eldest not home. He rolls in half an hour later looking like he lost a fight with a pavement, which he had.
Cycling home from the pub, not even the worse for wear, pedestrian steps out in front of him and he brakes hard and flips over the bars. Two sets of stitches, lots of abrasions, 3 hours in A&E. He's okay but looks terrible. He's going to have a rough time at work today.
Sigh. Hail Eris!
