Well, today is very special for some people. For those who are easily excited about creatures surrounded by mythology, today is Groundhog Day. Will winter continue, or will spring arrive early? His accuracy is.... has... a lot to be desired. Still, that does not keep a lot of people from showing up at Gobbler's Knob every February 2. Perhaps they think Gobbler's Knob offers more than a groundhog. Anyway, look at all of these people.
Today is also special at the store. Why? Today is inventory day. Yep. This is the day when hoards of Regis counters in their purple vests swarm the store. Since I am never available to work on Wednesdays, I'm going to miss the fun. Right. Nothing was ever fun about inventory. Managers prepping the store in order to find out if there's been 'shrink' or 'swell.' Yes, and even the HR managers need to help with the pre-counts. I don't miss it in the least.
I roasted chicken thighs in the air fryer yesterday. They were tasty. I was surprised at how much fat cooked out. Wow. I drizzled that over the dog's dinners last evening, they got the skin as well, and let me tell you, they loved it! I bought 2 potatoes so this afternoon I'm going to make French Fries!
Today is also treadmill day. Currently, I cruise along at 3.4 mph and 2% grade. I'm slowly picking up speed and increasing the grade. Both are driving my heartrate higher, which provides great cardio and burns calories as well.
Dana Milbank posted an opinion about Youngkin and the desire of Republicans to protect overly sensitive white people from history. His excerpts are from an actual textbook. That was the last decade before Americans began chopping up the same lies conservatives so desperately want to embrace... again. That decade was anything but innocent. Minorities had no rights, but then neither did women, for that matter. Father knew best. Every housewife wore and apron and pearls. You could beat up a fag and not have tow worry about it. In almost every respect, white conservatives believe this was as close as America got to heaven. Their fondest dream is to go back to those days. That can never happen.
