These haven’t been out since I moved last year. I’m not a responsible camera owner.

Here’s a photo of me and the first car I bought with all of my own money. It was a 1975 Honda Civic CVCC and it was a horrible car.

Correction (fluid)

I commented yesterday about being made fun of for not having any Wite-Out (a brand of correction fluid) because ha-ha you’re old and the only person left using paper.

I assumed that the market for things like correction fluid must be nearly non-existent.

Not true, says today’s edition of Quartz Obsession.

aren’t the practical use cases of a physical paint to conceal typos somewhat opaque these days?

Not according to the numbers. The correction fluid market has stayed resilient even as paper sales decline, the Atlantic reports, with Wite-Out brand sales increasing 10% in 2017 after a 7% slump the year before.

Coping with the mechanism

I am fully aware that putting together the copingmechanism.com blog is probably a mistake. I couldn’t help myself.

But what is it? I feel like it has to be more than just another tool I use to post the usual stuff. That’s what baty.blog and micro.blog are for. I’ve got that covered, so no.

It could be about photography, or poetry, or morning pages” or whatever. Maybe it could be nothing but meta” posts about what I’m trying this week. Doesn’t matter, but it has to be something. I’ll have to think about it and if I come up empty I’ll pull the plug.

I try everything. Today, it’s Centaur Emacs. Why not.

I am really liking this combination of C.D. Notebook, TWSBI fountain pen, and Noodler’s American Aristocracy ink. I’ve used each separately, but together they’re awesome.
