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

Set Design

Outside the temps are already in the mid 40s (F), and they're going to be zooming up into the mid 60s (F) today, and by Thursday they should be at a scorching 74 (F), that is if the forecasters are correct.  Sadly, a quick look at the long range forecast indicates they're going to be dropping back into more seasonal temps.  This is a good thing.  If it was already this hot in March, I have no idea how hot the summer would be and don't doubt that scorching would not be a strong enough adjective.

Work was boring yesterday.  I had a brief talk with my manager about my scheduling.  Some time back I'd mention that I wanted my Monday start time to be 0930, and that was the case for some time, until yesterday, when once again it was 10:30.  However, I went to work at 09:30 per the previous discussion I'd had with HR and discovered the error.  So, I work my shift.  If it happens again, I suppose I'll have to have another chat with HR.

I did sell some window treatments (roller shades) to a customer who was... nice, but not the brightest bulb in the box.  She was in her late 20s and wanted shades with all the frills, a glittery glint hem at the bottom and everything that goes with it.  The spent $1700 for 3 blinds.  He applied for a credit card and got one, with a credit limit of $1000.  They thought he'd have a higher limit, telling me he was a contractor and made $900,000 last year, however, they didn't mention how heavy their debt load was.  Honestly, the fact that he supposedly made that much money and was applying for credit card suggests to me that they're either up to their eyeballs in debt, or he simply didn't make as much as he claimed.

Seeing this pic from the Oscars makes me think the person in charge of set design is almost a genius.

For those who missed it, Ronnie DeSantis "Just Say No" anti-LGBQT bill just took a big one on the chin.  Teacher will now be able to talk to students about gender orientation issues with out fear of being fired.  In fact, Ronnie's anti-Woke campaign is dying on the vine, so to speak.  Mom's For Liberty meetings now draw protests, and Bridget Ziegler, also known as Mom for Three-Ways is refusing to resign from her position on the school board.  That would mean giving up the power she so desperately maneuvered to get.

And don't you find it interesting that Robert Hur, the Trump appointed official who did the hit piece on Biden's mental facilities has resigned his position with the DOJ.  Lies and deceits  have their consequences.  Transcripts of his conversations with the president have been released and people now know that his report was heavily cherry-picked and exaggerated, and had only one purpose in mind, to make Biden look weak.

Oh, and the Orange Anus has stated that he's open to cutting Social Security benefits if he's elected.  I'm betting Republicans will not be able to take that to the bank.


  1. I think set design is a very tricky thing and it does demand lots of talent and creativity. Did you see that Jimmy recognized the behind the scenes people at the movies during the Oscars?
    He also said that the directors were the first to fold in the strike. Heh.
    Hopefully the anti-woke assholes will suffer the consequences of their actions. Meatball Ron kind of basically killed his career, no? But it's Florida, so you know bigotry is a requirement, not a bug.
    Hur did do a hit job with Uncle Joe. Let's hope the media picks up on the transcripts. They love the bad and the ugly. The Good? Not that much. Old Biden was more clickbait. That kinda died off, right? After the SOTU the repugs kinda run out of 'old Biden' and "sleepy Joe" talking points?
    Let the old MAGAts digest what Cheeto wants to do with their 'entitlement programs'....


    1. I missed the beginning because of work. And I don't think Meatball Ron is having a good year. But that's fine. He deserves it.

  2. That is one of the coolest set designs I have ever seen for the Oscars.

  3. Poor DeFascist ... bwahahahahahaha!

    1. I'm betting his little, white booted Italian ego is taking a beating.

  4. The mind boggles how someone can supposedly earn nearly $1 million a year and not be able to pay cash for a $1,300 purchase! Someone's telling "porkie pies", I'm guessing!

    1. There original bill was for over $8000 and so they cut back to 3 blinds, and the frills she added will make them look tacky, but I'm certain she will never know.
