What I Hated the Least Today 206/365: Three Years on WordPress

It’s my WordPress anniversary today, as I registered my WP account three years ago. My actual blogiversary is in three days though, when I posted my first post. It was an almost hilariously bad snap of coffee. The picture was taken with a compact camera because I didn’t even have a smartphone back then. The post received

What I Hated the Least Today 205/365: What My Cat Wants

Since I’ve been living at my cat’s place, I’ve learned a few interesting things about cats in general and my cat in particular. Such as the following. The cat wants attention. She acts like she doesn’t, but she does. She’s quieter, calmer and better-behaved when I cuddle her anytime I chance to walk by and she

What I Hated the Least Today 204/365: On (C)lick

I’ve been learning HTML on and off for the last half a year. I’ve now thoroughly covered the basic tutorial at W3Schools, but there’s more. There’s always more. My original idea(l) of encompassing all of HTML, as in moving all there is to know about it in my head, proved to be rather naive. I’m

What I Hated the Least Today 203/365: Cat Code Tattoo

I take my own posts as prompts: when I blogged about chronic pain, I went to see the doctor the next day; when I blogged about tattoo ideas, I made an appointment at a tattoo studio immediately. While the results of my doctors’ appointments are still being determined, the outcome of my other appointment is now

What I Hated the Least Today 202/365: Doctors

I have a health insurance card. That in itself isn’t particularly surprising, as where I live, health insurance is obligatory. My card is special though because I made it so – I had my academic titles added on it because I could. Where I live, academic titles are a decorative property – it won’t earn you a

What I Hated the Least Today 201/365: Kitty Bomb

I received a package from overseas from a mysterious admirer. The package was better travelled than me, which itself inspired awe in me for it. There were more awes and aws as I opened it and kittens started spilling out of it. It seems that I live on the kindness of strangers and friends who are so awesome

What I Hated the Least Today 200/365: An Apple Device

A most unnatural thing has happened. I now own an Apple device. I came into possession of it by the most unnatural means too. A colleague won it, had it lying around for a while and then gave it to me, seeing that I could make a sensible use of it for website testing. Installing the Safari

What I Hated the Least Today 199/365: Socksies

I know, I’m weird with my diminutives. I have socksies, shoesies, panties and whatnotsies. On my defence, it’s perfectly normal in my mother tongue to diminutivise what you hate the least. Today I hate my toeless sockies the least of everything that I hate the least, with the exception of the catsie (aka the cat),

What I Hated the Least Today 198/365: Work Station Configurations

I’ve been configuring my work station. I added new software in the form of a soft kitty cushion. Given that I’m pretty much in permanent full body pain these days, I’m trying out some limited options I have to set up my work place so as to make it less conductive to the usual aches one

What I Hated the Least Today 197/365: Bed and Bruises

(Not) sorry that this post is much less fun than its suggestive title suggests. Everything is much less fun than publicity suggests. Including the bed. I crippled myself in bed yesterday. While climbing in it, as per usual, in order to sleep. I have myself (and the bed) to blame. I always climb in bed over
