Well, a happy Saturday morning to you all, unless, of course, you're in Australia, then it's a happy Sunday morning.
I get to go to work today. As usual, I always brown bag it (take my own lunch). Just call me frugal. A number of those I work with order out using one of the delivery services, one my fellow associates loves Door Dash (someone has much more disposable income then I do). Or, because there are a number of fast food restaurants within a 5 minute ride, they eat fat rich, sodium extravagant fast food. My lunches are always home made and healthy, and always include fresh fruit. Today desert is going to be blueberries and bananas.
For quite a long time, I would sit down and write in total silence. That's been changing. Music is now almost always in the background. Sometimes classical, sometimes folk music. Last night French folk music was playing, though most of the songs were about New France i.e. Canada and Quebec. Lily could care less what's playing. Biggie, on the other hand, seems to enjoy music. The night before last Spanish guitar music was playing and this is what he did. I almost didn't post this because the light reflections seem a bit garish.
Interestingly enough, that one specific school board in Texas which made headlines about needing apposing view of the holocaust has suddenly done a back flip. These racists, and bigots, and white supremacists don't like to be scrutinized.
Another group of Cracker jack Crazy Conservatives that's soon to be list as a hate group is the Moms for Liberty. This group of hate mongering women is trying to infiltrate school boards to upend curriculum they don't feel is Conservative enough. That's right, it's another damn minority group trying to force their socially conservative beliefs onto the majority. These women are ugly and hateful. Keep them out of politics before they have a chance to spread their cancer.
I also have coworkers who have food delivered every single day to work, often nice (expensive) salads and wraps and such. I don't understand how people can afford to casually drop $20+ (after delivery fees and tips) for a workday lunch on a regular basis!ReplyDelete
I love that video of Biggie and the Spanish guitar!
Either they make a lot of money or they short shrift something else.Delete
I always took my own lunch (and breakfast) too and was just stunned to see how much I saved by doing that. Plus I tended to cook for an army anyway so it just made sense. When I saw what my colleagues (and my ex-husband) used to spend in a day it gave me the heebie jeebies. Heck, my husband was spending enough to make two car payments and still he complained about th terrible food at work!ReplyDelete
I always cook something, and it's usually healthy. One associate actually said, "gee, why do you always eat vegetables at lunch?"Delete
