PB&J Update #7: My father and Prosper English have a lot in common

I have started the twinging again. It’s been fleeing from me when I try to grab it and look it in the eye. So far as I can tell, it’s mostly well-laid underlying anxiety caused by how my father reacted to any kind of situation involving a deadline or things that must be done. Mainly he reacted by exploding and, if he had time, physically and/or emotionally torturing his “loved ones.”

I may have to write a war story tomorrow if it gets any worse. Or maybe later on today.

Yesterday’s items:

  • Cleaning something out. Not at all. Possibly restarting my sojourn on controlling my diet through MyNetDiary calorie counting. They’ve added new features since last I reviewed them, including a local database, control over icons for manually entered foods, and recipe editing. (Available for iPhone and Android.)

  • Cooking/baking/etc. something for myself. I only managed garlic butter shrimp rice in the rice cooker. Trust me, this is barely anything at all.

  • Reading/watching something entertaining. I finished, in a couple days, Catherine Jinks’ Genius Wars. I’m pleased about that, and doubly pleased about being able to update my reading status on GoodReads as I move through a book (I avoid spoilers as much as possible). I’m now in the process of reading Terry Pratchett’s new City Watch Discworld book, Snuff. Feel free to follow me on GoodReads!

  • Reading/watching/doing something educational. Nothing. Kind of looking forwards to SFScope’s Terra Nova review from last night. There ought to be something learned second-hand from storytelling disasters. Also, I compiled all my written reviews on GoodReads.
