…and call him “George”.

G’day, Wheelizens!

No follow-up story in the local digital fish wrap re the “Come Meet A Black Person” networking event. Even searched teh intertubes; nada.

Curious.

Hi, Fatwa, and happy Friday, GN!

I was watching another brave woman on FOX last night, coming out to tell her story about how when she was 22 and an intern, an elected official in DC said she looked pretty and asked her to twirl for him, which she did. And then the same day, she got a promotion or a bonus or some such thing. And how awful it was and that she’s carried that awfulness with her for the last 15 or so years.

The horror.

Hai, Sven!

Man…nobody’s ever given me a promotion or bonus for twirling; another example of discrimination against cisgender white males, I guess. 🙁

Quite amusing Twitter thread about the Cheesecake Factory:

Happy Friday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

I had a slightly different take on today’s thread gif.

“and 20 years later be accused of sexual improprieties.”

I went to a Cheesecake Factory last June for a lunch meeting with colleagues. It was exactly as described in that twitter feed. I would much rather go somewhere else, but I know people who love TCF.

Hai, Paddy!

Wouldn’t that be “im-pup-prieties”?

We got a Cheesecake Factory gift card two -- possibly three -- Christmases ago which is still sitting in our gift card drawer. I suppose we ought to use it one of these days…

It’s at the Mall of Georgia, which isn’t that long a drive from CasaK. But that means we have to go to the Mall of Georgia; euwwwwww.

Sadly, yes.

Good to “see” you, sir.

The Mall of Georgia is a “shopping destination”; lots of nearby chain motor inns and restaurants. People actually go there for multi-day shopping sprees; I dinnae get it.

Perhaps it’s due to the fact that very few of the things I am personally interested in purchasing are available there, coupled with my general loathing of shopping.

Not being required to don pants is one of the many reasons I prefer online purchasing.
