Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Tasty!

 And so, another work week begins, the last one I will have to work 40 hours.  I took a vacation day next week so I'm only in for 32.  After that, 3 day work weeks should become my norm.

Forecasters are predicting a high in the low 80's (F) today.  Accuweather says that from now on the temps are going to drop into what is considered the average range for fall: nights in the 50's (F) and days in the low to mid 70's (F).  This is fine.  What needs to happen is the rain needs to stop.  Tomorrow again the fore forecast is for showers, on and off, and on and off.  Damn.

One of the things I've done in prepping for retirement, is create a spreadsheet (before retail I was in accounting) detailing income / expenses.  Today I'm going to set up a separate page detail my subscriptions.  This will be interesting.  One of the things we cable cutters like to tell ourselves is that this is a way to save money.  Today I'm going to find out just how much I'm spending.  The nice thing about subscriptions, is that they're easy to cancel.  

One of the Specialists I work with is from Kurdistan.  Every 2 years she goes home for a few months.  This time she brought back sweets for the department.  Delicious.  Addictive.  Pistachios and walnuts in just about everything.  Kurdish baklava is different from Greek baklava, but just as heavenly.  We rarely get traditional food that hasn't been Americanized.  Believe me, this was a real treat!


There was an interesting bit this morning in the NYT about Covid and how those who voted for the Orange Anus are those now paying the price.  In Wyoming, Montana, Kentucky, West Virginia, and a Alaska, the unvaccinated are paying with serious hospitalization and death.  For those red voters, this is freedom, a gamble of life and death.  Democratic voters, already a majority in America, can only see their ratio increase as more red voters lose their bad fight.

  1. Freedom to die a horrible death that could’ve been avoided. Hmmmm…guess they’re happy about it. And according to some doctors, the patients deny that they have covid even in their final moments. Insanity.

    1. Their craven need for power has made them delusional.

  2. I am totally not against the MAGAts falling like flies. What it's aggravating is that they are putting a burden in the health system in their states and having people who actually need to be hospitalized finding it hard to find a fucking bed.
    Kurdish baklava is delicious! Pittsburgh has the best one I've tasted.

    XOXO

  3. How Dave....I can just hear the pitiful, woes me, depressing sound of working your last full 40 hour week. How will you ever muddle through? But you got the Ralph Kramden mopey, sadness schtick down honey.

  4. First thing: that snack tray looks dee-lish.
    Secondly: you're free to die by a virus, and if that's what you do, good. Bye. But you aren't free to infect me.

    1. That was so tasty! And those succumbing? We have to make sure their MAGA kin don't try and vote for them.

  5. I also keep track of my "irregular" bills in excel because it allows me to see how much I need to put into that account every month to make sure every eventuality is covered but I'm beginning to suspect I might be a bit "over-subscribed" too. It will be interesting to see!

    1. I'm hoping my little subscriptions aren't more than I'm expecting them to be.
