Hellooooo Mspsocial! Nice to meet you! I'm Josh. I like reading, gaming, and many other things.

Here are the living beings that depend on me, Kentucky cat and Louisiana cat. Kentucky is from Kentucky, has no teeth, and enjoys chasing her toys. Louisiana's origin is unknown, but that was her name at the Minneapolis shelter so it seemed like fate. She enjoys waking me up in the morning to feed her.

I'm Josh and trying to figure out how to be a lawyer.

I have two cats, Kentucky and Louisiana.

I post about the Court, USPol, puzzles, my cats, and whatever media catches my fancy.

Work 

It stinks when you're responsive to someone in fixing/aiding in their issue, and they come to a different one that you have minimal, if any, control over (and you didn't have much control over the other one in the first place).

In attempting to solve a laptop issue, I found out that my graphics card needed an update!

The Case of the Murderous Dr. Cream 

Hohoho die mad, Scotland Yard

There are a lot of goodies in this, but yay belt space being allocated to weapons and rings! forum.square-enix.com/ffxiv/th

Eye Scratch Mention 

Ugh I think I scratched my eye just a little and it feels like I have an eyelash in it that just won't go away.

FFXIV 

Tank named "Wet Rag" taking a lot of damage.

Me: Really, universe? The jokes are writing themselves. Seems a little cruel.

Masters of the Universe: Revelation (2021), E1 spoilers potentially 

Pretty dang gutsy to de-center He-Man in the first episode.

Also gay AF. I'm taking no questions.

Homeownership 

Thinking about repairs makes me really want to redo the basement now.

Homeownership 

Getting the retaining wall fix sounds like it would be a good value added but I also dunno how much that would cost to get fixed. Also something more attractive than a concrete slab that maybe the city put in there (it abuts the alley)?

Homeownership 

Probably good to replace any rotting boards on the garage and then repaint the thing.

Homeownership 

Also garage needs to be repainted, sure.

Homeownership 

Here's the list of things to fix:

Stucco cracking (they don't indicate that there's maybe an underlying issue, which is that my retaining wall--since before I've been in the house, is akimbo). Put in requests for some quotes on this.

Door frame on rear is missing. (Like kind of? I'm not actually sure what the problem is with this).

Door to detached garage is rotting/has peeling paint. Yeah, this could be replaced.

Chimney needs tuck pointing. Didn't know what that was 'til now!

Homeownership 

The insurance company has indicated they'd like me to do some home repairs so I guess fixing the leaking wall and installing radon mitigation won't be enough for this year.

Went to a bike maintenance class yesterday and feel I've leveled up! Leveled up so hard I fell asleep after. :X

Now my morning is cleaning for gaming guests this afternoon.

Sports, team names 

I want Minneapolis team names named after local statuary.

The Minneapolis Cherry Spoons
The Minneapolis Mary Tyler Moores
The Minneapolis Blue Cocks

Work 

Went to the office. I forgot my badge and to brush my teeth (but I used mouthwash, I guess). Gonna be a day.

Me, earlier in the evening when I started watching the Hey, Arnold movie: huh I didn't realize how invested I was in Hey, Arnold!
