“Oh, the huge manatee!!”

G’day, Wheelizens!

Just brought OralSurgeryK home from the dentist’s office. She’s doing really well so far.

She made the surgeon tell me that she can only eat cold, creamy things today, so I ought to get her some frozen cream puffs. Really. Which I shall do in just a few minutes. (Certainly not as good as K8’s, but doctor’s orders…)

I’m headed to L.A. again on Sunday for 3.5 weeks to manage phase 2 -- the flat roof -- of that building along the Encino Motor Speedway. Think I’m gonna get me a safety vest for the days I have to direct traffic.

Too bad I can’t also use the Mossberg. 👿

“Dat’s a nice lookin’ new Acura you got dere; it’d be a real shame if somet’in’ was t’happen to it.”

BBL.

Heh.

Har!

Hahahahahahahahahaha!

Some tool who helped sell and implement Moochelle’s horrible school lunches for L.A. Unified is in trouble for allegedly funneling about $65K of district money into a private consulting firm he ran.

Additionally:

Beck said the allegations against Binkle represent a larger problem within the district. Binkle, Beck said, was allowed to operate with virtually no supervision, creating a situation that cost the district money and allowed him to enter into contracts with vendors with essentially no input from other school officials.

“He negotiated these contracts with these firms with no oversight, nobody else participating. It was a huge procurement bureaucracy. There was one contract for vegetarian entrees, and I remember sitting in a meeting with 35 people. Binkle was there. He had one entrée that was $2.25 per item, and our reimbursement was less than the cost of the meal,” Beck said. “Every meal that we sold, we were losing money.”

That’s a manatee, not Lena Dunham?

Happy Thursday and good morning, Fatwa, Here’s hoping Mrs. Arbuckle has a not so awful day and heals quickly. And back to LA? Cool. We’ll have to get together again.

Hai, Sven!

I shall pass your wishes on to Mrs. A.; thanks.

I’d be delighted to spend some time with you and Mrs. Sven again this trip.

Manatees are much classier (click to embiggen).

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Is this a Manatee Thursday?

Fatwa -- I’m glad BrendaK is doing well. Keep following the doctor’s orders!

Corruption in LAUSD? Tell me it isn’t so!

You see an awful lot of them in southern coastal Florida.
