    The march of progress and all. The phone is a motorola android from 2012/13 and wouldn't be expected to run modern software particularly well. I wasn't planning on using as an actual phone, or for anything particularly strenuous, I was incredibly frustrated to find none of the built in stuff could even install modern apps. The browser and market are both defunct and unsupported so they wont let me download apps or updates through them, the system can't parse APK files so I can't manually install anything, and the OS itself can't be updated unless I want to connect it to my computer and do it myself. The phone doesn't run particularly slow with what it has and I'm fairly sure it could run a single app at a time but, I can't get them on it to check. I'm just gonna toss it I think because the work to rebuild it and have it still possibly be garbage isn't worth it. Interesting though, it still runs way smoother than the iphone I have from 2015.

    Unrelated but, somewhat interesting: this phone was my dad's before he traded up and gave it to me. I guess I never used the built in mail app and my dad is notorious about never wiping his devices so I found a bunch of stuff like his old email account he doesn't even remember anymore (the content is basically all phishing schemes and trojans), the clipboard had messages he was drafting for his now ex-wife, some music files, just a lot of stuff. The email is still being used by someone since theres a snapchat verification email among the recents, but I know its not the email he uses anymore. I'm sure there's probably more stuff hidden in 13k spam emails.

    You may find this interesting.
    I haven't seen it yet, but I expect to. Eventually, I want to open a pagan green burial cemetary (or at least semi-green, there are state laws requiring embalming in some instances and I don't want to exclude anyone simply because embalming was required). I imagine if I manage that, I'll see a lot more pagan, simply because there aren't that many cemeteries for us specifically.

    Re: Whatcha thinking about now? (v2)

    Well last night I had my sleep study done. I did pretty well except the mask was somewhat uncomfortable. It bit into my face and the nurse, who was really nice, loosened it for me so it wasn't too tight. I woke up a few times. A child was in another bedroom near mine and I heard him or her (couldn't tell which) cry. I also had to go to the bathroom a few times. It was odd getting used to the c-pap. However, I really didn't notice it once I started falling asleep. I really couldn't tell a difference though because of the fact that I woke a few times. I will get the results in a few weeks. Hopefully, it will reveal something positive.

    I'm at work right now, and the local grocery store is currently engulfed in flames.
    We are all these things [...]. Pride, desire, compassion, cleverness, belligerence, fruitfulness, loyalty...and guilt. But above it all stands love. And if we desire to be more than human, that is the star by which we must set our sights.

    Questions of science, science and progress, do not speak as loud as my heart.

    Hot Pickle!

    You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.

    “Leaving is not enough. You must stay gone. Train your heart like a dog. Change the locks even on the house he’s never visited. You lucky, lucky girl. You have an apartment just your size. A bathtub full of tea. A heart the size of Arizona, but not nearly so arid. Don’t wish away your cracked past, your crooked toes, your problems are papier mache puppets you made or bought because the vendor at the market was so compelling you just had to have them. You had to have him. And you did. And now you pull down the bridge between your houses, you make him call before he visits, you take a lover for granted, you take a lover who looks at you like maybe you are magic. Make the first bottle you consume in this place a relic. Place it on whatever altar you fashion with a knife and five cranberries. Don’t lose too much weight. Stupid girls are always trying to disappear as revenge. And you are not stupid. You loved a man with more hands than a parade of beggars, and here you stand. Heart like a four-poster bed. Heart like a canvas. Heart leaking something so strong they can smell it in the street.”

    Frida Kahlo to Marty McConnell

    I wouldn't know, I haven't watched it. But green as in https://greenburialcouncil.org/home/...-green-burial/

    It means that you bury in a natural way that has a lower impact on the environment.

    Basically. If there is a casket it has to be biodegradable and made from certain materials. There are also requirements for the land you bury on and things like that. I've been researching it a bit more today.

    Are you OK? As was already asked, are there other places you can shop nearby? Do you need anything?
