When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Pins and Needles
Well, it's Thursday and I get to work 8 hours. Yep, that's right a full shift. And no, this is not an endurance test for me. That'll happen in 3 weeks when I'm scheduled to work 25.5 hours. Holy Banana Peels! I can't remember the last time I worked that many hours.
We did have snow yesterday, about 2 inches. White and fluffy, the dogs went out several times though I don't know if that's because they like the snow, or just really liked being toweled off when they come back in the house. With Biggie? I'm certain it's a biscuit thing. For him, biscuits will always rule the day.
Bethesda had a big showcase yesterday showing off some of their upcoming games. No Starfield information. That's the game the world is waiting for, and I do mean world. It's supposed to drop in the first half of 2023, though the release date is complicated. They don't want to compete with themselves, and a little thing called Redfall has a release date of May 2. That means Starfield will probably drop probably in late June. I guess the big question is not when it actually releases, but if it's going to sell over 35 million copies on day one. At $69 a copy, that's a lot of moolah moolah. Here's a bit about Redfall. It's free on Gamepass, so I'm not planning on purchasing this one.
Of course, a lot of people are on pins and needles as they wait for the first indictment to drop. I'm not, but then I can be very patient. Justice is Karma. It doesn't happen at the snap of your fingers. The longer it takes, the more brutal it can be. Let's be honest. We don't only want to see Trump pay the price. There are others we want to see incarcerated. Like Roger Stone. I would definitely like to see that shitty smile of his legally wiped off his face... for the rest of his life. And Jimmy Jordan. Knowing that he's spending the rest of his days having to use a group shower with men who see him as just another piece of meat? With his history of ignoring student predators, would that just be simply delightful. These people do not understand that they are not special. They have not been chosen. Justice is going to teach them this lesson.
I don't know about you, but I'm beginning to chortle, chortle, chortle at Kev McCarthy's frustrations. Did everybody hear he flipped out when an NPR correspondent asked about George Santos? Kev made so little sense that for a few moments, I thought he was speaking in tongues..
And finally, there will be protests when the first Trump indictment is revealed. Now, I know some of you will want to let your own frustrations out, well, don't. America is watching. I would not be surprised if we see a reenactment of January 6, but worse, in several cities as stupid MAGAs take to the streets. The Republican party is dying. These protests will be their death knell.
Oh, we have about five inches. Not much, but I'm talking snow.ReplyDelete
And I am indeed waiting for the indictments and I hope there's a domino effect with all the corrupt enablers of Mango Mussolini. And if there's riots, I hope the Army shows them the kind of cosplayers they are. It won't be like int he video games they play in their basement. Hopefully the country learned something January 6 and will cut any fuckery off before it gets out of hand.
In some places, mostly those deep red states in the south, I suspect it might get nasty.Delete
Good luck with your shift today. I am almost done with the day and looking forward to getting outside because we actually have sunshine instead of gray skies and wind.ReplyDelete
Shift went well. I made my sales goal for the week, and then some.Delete
