  1. At this point in pandemic I feel like I've got my routine down pat. Here is Monday. Get up around 6-6:30 Coffee, the Times, the Post, the Journal. YouTube videos of rainy streets or beaches. 7:30 go to the gym. Home by 9. Shower. Breakfast is usually some variation of potato, onion, sausage, veggies (whatever is lying around) and 3 eggs with a lot of hot sauce. 9:30-10:00 work starts. I normally have my schedule full days in advance so I don't waste time or miss things. Lots of water with lemon. More coffee. 5~ish I f
  2. Bright Lands - started great, small Texas county where everybody is obsessed with the high school football team. The first 80% is a really engaging story, part small town mystery, part supernatural horror. But the last 20% just fell apart. It eventually devolved into a violent orgy. Yes, literally.
  3. Thanks, I'm sorry to vent when other people have it a lot worse but its infuriating.
  4. So the Girl and the Kid and I moved about 8 years ago from FL to MD. One of the benefits of this was space from the Girl's folks. What I have come to accept in the 12 years we have been together now is that my wife is the adult in the family. The narcissistic parents had to learn to fend for themselves a bit when she left, although they continue to call her almost every day to vent their frustrations, with each other, with other family, with the world. In the intervening time the Kid has grown up and become aware that grandma in particular just isn't a very nice person. Its hard
  5. I've placed a hold on Convenience Store Woman! Thanks!
  6. We are very sorry for your loss.
  7. Those are all natural, valid points and I hope for that reason this board will continue, and even exist alongside the slack. A symbiotic arrangement seems possible, I mean there is no overriding reason to be "either/or". @Psychophant posts cool stuff. I hope you keep posting here (even if you mute me ;))
  8. My direct boss, she was at HUD before but this is a big step up and it sucks and I hate it.
  9. On the downside, my boss, one of the best managers I have ever worked with, got poached by Marcia Fudge to be the Chief of Staff of HUD.
  10. Hmmm seems like my settings are right. Nada in the spam folder either... Well, back to work for a short, intense week. DC is basically an armed camp as we proceed with the coronation. Which is kind of weird right? Its like the founders wanted some of the pomp of the monarchy without the monarchy. Do other democracies make a new executive taking office into such a big deal? OTOH, the transition is a freight train steamrolling right over hapless Trump appointees that are scrambling to either get embedded in the career federal workforce or looking for work.
  11. Is anybody else not getting notifications? I set it to send me a daily email and didn't get one yet, though I appear to be following stuff?
  12. I thought this might be an interesting poll given the times.
  13. I reconnected with some awesome people on zoom. Moving forward, should we want to do zoom meats, I'm up for it.
  14. Interesting little piece on aging goths. https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/magazine/do-elder-goths-hold-the-secret-to-aging-successfully/2021/01/11/a565b2de-3b04-11eb-9276-ae0ca72729be_story.html I feel a bit seen. We were actually at two of the events mentioned here, but compared to Florida they were pretty small scale.
