Is everybody excited for the new work week? I am. Not because I have to work, which I do, but this morning the January 6 committee has another hearing... and I don't need to be at work until 12, that means I'll get to watch part of it.
Yesterday, as I expected, was another slow day at work. I had around $2000 in sales, so I hit my goal for the week. That's nice, it kind of keeps management quiet. Otherwise, we sat around. Here's a sample of how poorly things are going: for the same week last year the flooring department had 26 measures, this year we had 5. Ouch! To compensate prices are going up because American Capitalism has decreed that in order to satisfy Wall Street, you will need to punish the general population. This makes things worse, but tell me, do you think corporate America really cares about anything other than their own financial gains?
Right now, I'm using my old laptop stand as a printer table. I hate it, so I'm replacing it with a small, 2 drawer filing cabinet my mom gave me decades ago. At present, the cabinet is beige, later this morning it will be painted red to fit in with the rest of the decor. Pictures to follow.
Since business was so slow yesterday, I got to watch the Xbox / Bethesda showcase on the flooring desk computer. Not the who 2.5-hour showcase, mind you. I had the sound playing lowly and now and then would open the window to see which games were being talked about. There was only one game I was truly interested in, and that was Starfield, Bethesda's first new IP in 29 years. If you don't own stock in Xbox, now's the time to buy. I know there are people who think gaming is only shooting things up, but there is so much more, like exploration. There are over 1000 planets in Starfield to explore. There is settlement building, where you have to gather the raw materials to build a settlement and then hire people to work there, all done without firing a weapon. There are millions of gamers who find that fascinating. Here's the release video with game play. Oh, and in case you're wondering there is some shooting.
And today is the January 6 committee's 2nd public hearing. A lot of people are trying to predict just what they're going to do, but let's be honest, without a program, we'll just have to wait and see. Some of their guest witnesses are intriguing: the guy who ran Trump's campaign and got fired because losing is not in Trump's vocabulary.
And then there's Georgia. Even Newsweek is implying the case there will bring us the arrest so many want. There's so much evidence. Like stars in the heaven, if you look up, you can't miss them.
