having a "fixing stuff that is invisible to everyone but me" day. fixed a loose mirror on my motorcycle, fixed the loose hinge on our gross ancient tiny 2nd bathroom shower door, fixed some fan noise on my aging desktop, fixed my stomach with 2 Costco hotdogs. considering that this is supposed to be like, the least alienating form of labour, I gotta say it mostly makes me fussy and worn out, but on the plus side my stuff is fixed
