    There'll be magpies over
    That poor Aussie plover
    Tomorrow just you wait and see...

    Magpie's version:

    I'm looking over
    An Aussie plover
    That I've never seen before...

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 7

    1. The Nintendo Switch game I ordered has arrived at the pickup location... But I don't know if I can get there before 5pm on a normal weekday. All the bicycle hassle of last time has put me off, even though there's no way the game will be a repeat of the giant box situation.
    2. I've been enjoying playing my Switch (specifically Super Mario Odyssey) lately. Since I brought it over to my desk a week ago I have played it more than in the previous 8 months.
    3. I'm having some trouble with making positive choices when emotionally feeling kind of weird, but coincidentally it's sort of something I discussed with the counsellor albeit in a different context. And last night I didn't make a negative choice. I dunno if it's a good idea to discuss it with my psych though because we've had a good couple of sessions lately and I don't want to initiate a bad one. If I bring it up I'll need to be very clear on telling him what responses will be unhelpful (ie. anything where I come away with the impression that he thinks I'm being lazy and weak, not doing enough activities and should suck it up and ignore it and go do other things and be productive instead of being selfish and whiney and useless, having feelings about something I shouldn't, being overly emotional and pathetic) and make sure we clarify that I'm not at one of those conclusions at the end of the session.

    1. Some academic conferences are now free (due to being online due to COVID-19).

    2. My calico cat came back within a couple hours after escaping.

    3. Taco Bell in my area has been remodeled and looks almost fancy now.

    "Almost fancy" may be the best you can hope for with Taco Bell

    Yes, fortunately they have been managing expectations for many years

    1. Managed to avoid any neighbours this afternoon /tonight.
    2. Played some more Super Mario.
    3. Clutching at straws a bit on this one but at least I know that my therapist cares about me less than some other clients, rather than incorrectly assuming that he cares more than what little he does.
