My braille eclipse book just arrived from NASA and I downloaded and installed the eclipse web app on my phone. I'm stoked, it has environmental sounds, audio description and a "rumble map." Not entirely sure how that will work, but I'm willing to try.

Are we doing anything for the eclipse? We should. Do you the rest of you have special eclipse glasses? You might go blind if not!

you don't care about celebrating your birthday.

other than family dinner, I didn't bother to acknowledge it. What's the point when my best friend hates me?

Anyone interested in being my assistant/admin? Ideally, I need a paralegal, but I don't think anyone here is qualified, so that can happen later. But, I can offer 20-ish hours a week and flexible hours. Plus the commute is only to the basement. A willingness to learn or transcribe Braille would be awesome too.

Any takers?

Happy birthday Clint! Yeah, it was yesterday, but I didn't actually forget. I just got distracted. Congrats on making it another year around the sun or something, old man.

I can listen to Gangsta's Paradise while I go through briefs and index documents.

I am the definition of this.

Last summer, I helped fund a kickstarter for braille dice. Like all good nerds, I did some D&D back in college with my roommate, Foggy, and various others. Unlike all the good nerds, I couldn't actually see the dice when I had to roll and other than traditional 6-sided die, they don't come in braille. I relied on my roommate to read them for me.

Now, I don't have to.

braille dice! )
xp_daredevil: (hmm?)
It's Sunday morning and I'm making pancakes.

I have bananas, chocolate chips, blueberries, nuts and peanut butter and whatever else I can find that you think is awesome.

come to the kitchen.

34...34 hours since I last slept. I laid there. I laid there and listened to rain sounds. I went to the gym to work out. I had a glass of spiced rum.

noooooooope. Not happening. Sigh. I guess I'll go out.

I found my baseball. It's special and fancy.

Anyone interested in a game this weekend?

Nothing like having to explain to a new doctor what NLP means. Seriously? How did you finish med school?!

No. Light. Perception. It's not that difficult. I'm BLIND. Completely. Totally. 100%. There's no "let's look into new options" or "they've come so far with laser surgeries now." There is the 'mutant powers' option, but I don't mention that to my general practitioner and it's not really an option for most people.

Tonight, I'm thinking about drinking something with an eel at the bottom. Or whatever that thing is. Anyone up to join?

May the Fourth be with you

Conversation at work today is about regulating fiber intake.

These are people that are at most, 30. When did things like regular bowel movements become such a concern for people? And why is this watercooler talk? It makes me feel way too old.

I almost want to go find something especially greasy and awful for lunch just to counter all the adulting, but then I remember that my plans tonight are to go look at getting a new bed since mine is awful.

I'm failing miserably here.

spring?

I'm in Manhattan, I worked earlier and I am absolutely bored to tears. Nothing on TV I'm interested in. Don't feel like going out. Don't feel like the gym.

Someone have an idea? Distract me!

lazy Sunday mornings are the best. with brunch.

I should go to church later. But....lazy morning.
xp_daredevil: (matt 2)
Good morning everyone! I never know what to say in these things, they always feel like the stereotypical AA introductions in movies, hi I'm Matt Murdock and I'm a mutant...

But, I am and I am and that's why I'm here. I'm also a lawyer and work in the city so I'm going to be commuting back and forth, spending a few days in the city, then the weekends here.

I'll leave everyone with a question. Would you rather be blind or deaf?
