Well, it's Thursday and I'm going back to work. I was supposed to return yesterday, however I ended up taking a personal day because something cropped up. Something other than the inauguration.
My new color printer was set to arrive 3 days after I placed the order so bright and early, before I even had a chance to start writing my bog entry, I went to went to my 'orders' tab at Amazon and clicked on my recent order. To my surprised, the cost had dropped $88 dollars, from $423 to $335. Wow! I requested an adjustment from Amazon, who sent my request to the 3rd party seller, Provantage LLC. An hour later I received my response. Provantage LLC does not price match after an order has shipped or is considered complete. I was astounded, but then I work for the largest home improvement retailer in the world and I can say we have no problem price matching an online order as long as the time period is within reason. So, I processed a return and the minute FedEx dropped that printer off on my porch I threw it in my car and drove it over to the UPS Store. I also filed a complaint with Amazon about Provantage, and in doing so discovered a number of complaints have been filed against them through the Better Business Bureau. Ouch. Now that I've got that bitch moment out of my system... on to more interesting things.
And, as you all might suspect, I did watch the inauguration. Now, wasn't that simply fantastic! I must say I enjoyed the lack of pomp. Simplicity can be very powerful. We now have a Centrist President who understands the diversity of America. One party one the election fairly and legally, the other has lost in so many, many ways. While America anticipates a Biden presidency, do not doubt that their eyes are still on the losers, watching as that party dissolves.
Ohhh you show them, Dave! Working for a big box company does have advantages.ReplyDelete
And the whole inauguration was a master class on.. well, class, and knowing that leading by example helps. I loved the music and the anecdotes and the performances and that POEM!
Everybody looked... human? That's something that was missing from Twitler and his minions. They did not look human. They looked like shellacked automatons.
QAnon is unraveling. They'll slither back up soon though. Did you know they now claim Uncle Joe was part of Q all along? Yep, they're that cray.
That poem was tremendous. And you wait, the Q's will soon turn on the Republicans, saying they were lying all the time to cover their asses.Delete
Joe Exotic???? OMG.ReplyDelete
So many amazing and inspiring speeches during this Inauguration!! Such hope for tomorrow!
Yeah, I did laugh at Joe. I do think the Circumstance without the Pomp made the whole thing amazing.Delete
I laughed so hard at Joe Exotic! Hell, he probably deserved a pardon more than half the criminals 45 DID pardon!ReplyDelete
Yesterday was a fantastic day. I'm beyond shocked at what you wrote about the Proud Boys congratulating Biden. Who saw that coming?
I wouldn't be surprised if you see some of the Proud Boys at his impeachment trial.Delete
I didn't miss any of the "fluff" yesterday. we need less "fluff" and more positive substance. we have many problems to solve.ReplyDelete
good for you returning the printer; $88 is a lot of greenbacks.
Without all the Pomp the inauguration was shorter and much more enjoyable.Delete
Good for you for sending that printer back. Man that would piss me off too. And I'd read more than a few things about the "Proud Boys" (what exactly are they proud of?) but it's good to hear that they've dumped Trump. It begs the question what took them so long though doesn't it!ReplyDelete
Everybody's dumping him, and the Proud Boys are proud to be white supremacists.Delete
Those Q people are completely wacko. I read a bit on them yesterday and laughed the whole way through the article.ReplyDelete
I actually liked the day without all the huge crowds. It was calming. And what we needed.
They are nothing more than living, breathing fruitcakes.Delete
I liked the stripped down show. It focused on what we need to focus on, but still had beautiful moments ... like Amanda Gorman's amazing poetry!ReplyDelete
I think many, many people did, it was straightforward and to the point.Delete
