    i had some light fever yesterday, and was given oscillococcinum (anas barbariae) by a colleague. It was unusual looking (dust in a tube), so I googled it, and found the above wikipedia entry. I said thanks but no thanks. Instead of ingesting some sugar and hoping it acts on the virus, I’ll get plain old traditional western medicine.

    that moment when I think I clicked the gmail search box and start typing

    > from:blabla to:blabla filename:(doc OR docx)

    but turns out the click was off by a few pixels and the prompt was not in the search bar and instead a bunch of gmail in-browser keyboard shortcuts are triggered during the typing, and I’m not sure whether I accidentally marked innocent bystander emails as spam or trashed them

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    1. After watching Game of Thrones “The Mountain” advertisements, I buy a SodaStream carbonator to get sparkling water at home
    2. i order a co2 replacement pickup-exchange service
    3. some middle eastern looking guy delivers it and asks for the replacement, which I had forgotten to place on time. (i’m actually unclear how it works – do i place the bottle outside the apartment room door? or outside the apartment by the sidewalk? the exchange program does not specify)
    4. apartment manager receives the package, and by middle eastern guy + small very heavy package + the guy rambles about needing the replacement => deduces the guy could be terrorist and the package be a bomb. Yes, in a delivery truck. Delivering bombs in a carton box. She sternly warns about its explosive potential to another person before passing the “bomb” to her to pass it on to me.
    5. This is so great. I love America.

    i was like “oh i need to pay today’s rent, i’m one day behind schedule (apt is pretty lenient)”, and cut out a check and was looking at my check records to see what the current rent amount was, and noticed i already paid the rent two weeks ago… -0-;

    did i just get $900 for free?

    over the weekend, i came across the youtube channel “classical musicians react to kpop” which was a very unique experience.. i had no idea that rap songs had chord progression!

    Classical Musicians React: IU 'Good Day'

    Watch this video on YouTube.

    Because there *are* kpop songs of questionable quality, this channel seems to focus more on iconic pieces or songs that do have musically interesting attempts or high quality pieces. That’s how I came across Ailee, AKMU and Mamamoo.

    In particular I really enjoyed the jazzy touch and full volume singing in U&I of Ailee:

    Ailee U&I MV _ 에일리 유앤아이 MV

    Watch this video on YouTube.

    I also get a vague impression of blackness performed in the song, especially with this visual sequence:

    I’m sop glad to have found this channel
