A change in direction has started to lift a, this time aphasiatic, fog that had settled on my brain. It’s not all the way gone yet, so if there’s some word order nonsense or a wrong word insertions, cut me some slack. One consequence of this experience is a little bit of rambly euphoria. I want to talk about silly looking (and named) grapes, overclocking an Arduino with liquid nitrogen, McDonald’s Canadian Vegetarian Snackwraps, drug testing welfare recipients, marijuana chain of custody, and Golden Rice. It’s not dangerous uncontrolled frenzy, but more the giddiness of speaking after your voice finally comes back. I’m sure it is annoying as shit to everyone else, and there’s some concern if the trajectory continues, but at the moment it’s a celebration.
