Happy Friday, GN!!1!

Mac --

I didn’t know that SMOD 2016 had a Twitter account; heh.

“Fatwa” must be Yiddish for “thread kilter”.

I feel like Teh Squeak’s own “little Eichmann”; I should probably dust-off the jackboots Sinner gave me as Minister of Propaganda years ago. 🙂

But I still love you.

Awwww…backatcha, Sven.

Got a call yesterday afternoon re the most recent large roof bid I submitted; if the HOA can get approval for a loan, we’ve got the gig. (They’ve had five fairly severe leaks this winter, which is kind of a lot, given the total number of units in the building.)

BBL.

Someone on Twitter recently remarked that Trump is so orange, he makes John Boehner look like Edgar Winter.

In Happy Larryville news: Plan to kill Gwinnett vultures ruffles feathers.

(Much to my disappointment, this has nothing to do with our venal local pols.)

They’ve tried pyrotechnics, lasers and even fake vultures.

But Gwinnett County’s 18-month bid to shoo away a flock of 250 vultures at Rhodes Jordan Park in Lawrenceville has proved fruitless. Now the county will close the park, and possibly the Briscoe Field airport, for three days this week as federal officials launch a more sustained effort to get rid of the birds, which pose a safety hazard to aircraft taking off and landing nearby.

They say they will kill at least five of the birds in the process.

I can imagine them vultures hanging around the airport and electing one of their flock to take one for the team by taking out an airplane.

Hi, Fatwa!

Nice to see Trump get bloodied up last night, although his supporters will spin it nicely to his favor. And I thought Obama was bad…

Heidi-ho, Gerbiliños!
Mrs. Paddy and I returned from our Great Adventure late last night and are trying to put things back in order -- laundry, groceries, etc.

We had a great time and even met a few people from Alpharetta and Lawrenceville while we were away.

On top of the usual after-vacation tasks, I start my new job today. Of course I was expecting an email telling me what to do, but that would be asking too much. I finished up my benefits paperwork that I tried to complete while on vacation, but the system that their HR provider uses (Insperity) “has problems with that new browser, Chrome”. While trying to view health insurance options, the system kept taking me to a login screen, so I called the Customer Disservice number and the poor guy was stumped. He said he’d email me the info in about 5-7 minutes. That was an hour ago and I still don’t have anything. I contacted HR asking what I’m supposed to do today and they had my supervisor send me some logins and passwords (that don’t work) and she said she was working on getting training set up for me. It should be an interesting day.

Hai, Sven, Paddy and Mac!

Paddy --

Glad you and Mrs. O’ had a nice trip. Hope that the chimps at your new job can get you sorted out.

“…that new browser, Chrome”.

You mean the one which was oroginally released at the end of ’08?? Jeebus.

Apparently, there’s a burgeoning cottage industry of mocking Trump by replacing his voice -- while keeping his actual words. Here’s a “ghey” version of his SC victory speech:

Well, my supervisor never did send me any info on training, or respond to my problems with accessing my email or logging into one of their systems. I did manage to figure out the problem with one of the passwords they assigned to me by doing some pattern matching -- a fact which should shame whoever is coming up with these passwords -- but the system I could log in to was worthless without access to additional software. All-in-all a fairly unproductive day, but at least I am getting paid for doing jack-sh!t.
