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

Goggle This

 Monday, and the sun's supposed to shine, though the temps are to be around normal, that means in the mid 50s (F).  That's fine with me.  Things will be warm enough, soon enough.  Many people can't wait for summer and then when it finally arrives they complain about the heat so much I wonder if they have mid-term memory issues.  Don't they remember that summer does not mean temps are going to stay in the comfortable 80s (F), but that there will be times when they climb into the high 90s (F) or early 100sk (F)?

They gave me Specialist of the Month yesterday.  Some think this is a great.  Me?  I know there are only so many Specialists and only so many months in the year.  For a part-timer, my sales are good, better than some of the full-timers, in fact, and that's what they look at.  Still, getting the award does let me order a special gift from an Award Catalog.  Every other time I've won, I've chosen a nice water bottle.  This time?  Maybe a thermometer.

And the new glasses arrived. They're garnet colored.  For those who don't know, garnets are a deep, almost blood red color, at least the ones I've seen.  My grandmother used to have a garnet necklace - big stones. I like them.  They're a big change up from the blue and the lenses are clear.

Elon, the moron, Tweeted yesterday that only verified Tweeters, those paying $11.99 a month were going to get their Tweets prioritized.  This is nothing more than a way for the loser to inject some sort of revenue into the platform since advertisers have been bailing.  A number of those I follow retweeted his post and let their followers know they weren't going to pay the fee.  Many said that if things continued to deteriorate, they could be found on Post.  Transitioning to a new platform will not be difficult.  Right now, it seems that most of the Tweets that pop into my feed are either ultra right wing, or Republicans.  Believe me when I tell you that I'm tried of telling Elise Stefanik that she's nothing more than a lying sack of shit.

And Baby Bibi Netanyahu has reversed, or at least is been stymied by demonstrators who have managed to derail that is authoritarian agenda... for the moment.  I'm sure he's seething.  Conservatives in the US need to pay close attention.



  1. I rarely complain about the cold (I know better) and just love the spring. Hate the summer with all that bloody heat but at least over here the unbearable stuff only lasts about six weeks! Like the new glasses too - better than those yellow ones!

    1. I don't like the 100 (F) degree days and will luxuriate in the Central Air. And those yellow lens glasses were a terrible investment.

  2. It's been in the thirties here. But it's the Midwest, right?
    Love the glasses. Told you they're very FBI agent circa 1956 and I like them. I like these better than then blue ones?
    As for Melon, well, he's driving the platform to the ground, with a skeleton crew and deals you would not find at the Dollar Tree. He's not a genius. Nope.


    1. Thanks, 1950s FBI is okay. Musk's ego is quickly creating a future biography that will cause people to ask, "what in hell was he thinking?"
