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.
3.4 is a pretty good spend! I usually go at 3.5 anything high and I sweat to much and since I don't take a shower after and have to work the afternoon, I am sparing the others who walk into my office.ReplyDelete
Once I'm going, it doesn't seem fast to me, Usually do 50 minutes. Sweating's no problem for me, I just jump into the shower afterwards.Delete
Let's just gloss over the Holocaust and slavery and the Civil Rights movement, and no need to mention The Gays.ReplyDelete
They epitomize the cancel culture they constantly disparage.Delete
Driving your heart rate higher is always good when exercising. My doctor told me I have to sweat, otherwise does not count.ReplyDelete
And the air fryer is pretty useful. I don't know how to cook in it, but the food is delish.
And you know Youngkin IS a repug and there's no 'moderate' repug these days. Repugs want to keep living in 1952.
They loved the 50's because that was the last decade they believe white men were totally in charge.Delete
