Just talked to my mom on the phone, she's been in lots of pain, runs in the family, big family. Time isn't behaving very normally, sick of it, need something to engage my attention, pity nothing really does.
Thinking about documentary function of this thing, good if you need somebody to feel icy contempt for, I guess, can't imagine anybody's too short on those. If it comes in handy, though, feel free.
Consistently failing to grasp the obvious is one of my strengths. Better to make things too difficult than too easy.
