Bluntness

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

Sammy and Elena

 A soggy weekend has begun.  Outside, the rain is steady, not heavy; what we like to call a soaker, where there is just enough time for the rain drops to soak into the ground.  They're forecasting 1 - 2 inches, which is basically a drop in the bucket to the 2 feet Ian dropped on Florida.  Temps today are predicted to hover in the upper 50s (F).  Sadly, that temperature is one at which grass will continue to grow, so I'm expecting to be mowing my front lawn next Friday.

Tuesday, the plumber will be here to give me an estimate on the water hook-up on the 2nd floor.  I could almost envision $$$ adding up in the receptionists head when I told her where the new washer was going to be located.  As I told her there was both a sink and a shower on the other side of the wall, I could hear those $$$ draining out of her voice as she said, "oh, that'll be easy."

Also, I'm going with a ventless dryer, (yes there is such a thing.)  I can't see spending $500 to have some contractor lean a ladder up against the backside of my house just to chop a whole in the wall for a vent.

I do get to work today, so I'll probably post a pic or 2 tomorrow of the updated Flooring Department.  They did transfer a full time associate into our department as a specialist.  I can see him spending a lot of time back in the employee lunch room to avoid having to design blinds, and work with quotes on floors.

Here's a pic I took of the dogs this morning.  I call it Rainy Day Dogs.


I got a notice from the USPS that my mail-in ballot should be arriving either today or Monday.  I'm betting most of you can already guess who I'm voting for.  This my part of trying to save Democracy in America.

There are... rumors... Sammy Alito is not too happy with fellow judge Elena Kagen.  I'm sure there are a number of reasons this could be true:  she is female, for one.  It's understandable that a man who referenced a 17th century jurist in his decision to overturn Roe might question the superiority of women's voices.  He doesn't understand, history will not be looking kindly on him.

For those outside of the state, the attack ads on Fetterman are everywhere.  Oz has narrowed the gap, at least according to polls.  This was done with endorsements from the Fraternal Organization of Police, and the State Police.  They're trying to paint Fetterman soft on crime.  It's the only thing  they have.  That, and his tats, which Tucker Carlson wasted a 20 minute rant on, at least that's what I've heard.  Republicans aren't even going near the abortion issue, which means they're writing off a majority of the voting base.  One of the many reasons I'm voting blue is to send Ozzie back over to New Jersey, where he belongs.

Size 20 +

The end of September.  The month has past quickly, I think.  Time does seem to move faster as you grow older, but the past 4 weeks were gone in what seemed to be a finger snap.

Yesterday was interesting at work.  The renovation of the flooring department is... major.  So far, I'm not impressed.  Our desk is tiny.  There is no way one associate can design blinds for customers, while another keys in a flooring measure.  The desk was still in the process of being located into its final position.  Pictures tomorrow.

I started watching Andor last night on Disney.  It's okay.  Characters actually said 'bastard' and 'shit.'   There were 3 short episodes which were basically a introductory starter pack.  I will watch future episodes, though this isn't something that has be hanging on the edge of my seat.  Instead of watching each new episode weekly, I'll wait a couple of weeks.

Ian is going to hit South Carolina this afternoon.  For those of you in his path, persevere, his rains will pass.  He will be raining on Central PA tomorrow and Sunday.  With college football on TV on Saturday and Pro football teams playing Sunday, the store will most likely be slow.

Ginni testified before the Jan 6 committee yesterday.


For those of you who don't remember, she was going to set the record straight.  Well, it turns out that Ginni told the committee that she still believes the election was stolen.  She will never change her story.  She also told them she never discussed her political belief with Clarence.  Well, we all know that's horseshit, but then we all need to remember that Ginni's universe is, while seeming large, at least a size 20 +, in reality it is very small.

In fact, her universe is approximately the same size as that of Sammy Alito.  He just spoke his mind in a mini-tirade about the so-called integrity of the Supreme Court.  Sammy is upset that so many people are questioning the legitimacy of the court.  This is because in Sammy's mind, God is behind everything, including McConnell's decision sit on Merrick Garland's nomination, as well his his decision to throw out the filibuster in order to seat Amy Cony Bony.  In Sammy's universe, 1864 was a very good year.

And finally, for those who missed it, Judge Ailleen Cannon has decided that the Special Master her client, Donald Trump, wanted needs to be reigned in.  You see she thought Dearie was going to cozy in with her and the Trump defense team, and he didn't.  Since he didn't, she took matters into her own hands to create a delay.  She also decided that it wasn't really necessary for Trump to prove that the FBI planted the documents he claims to have declassified.  She is the essence of corruption.
