Oh boy…Monday again. But no ice or snow here, which is nice.
Not so nice that “oopsie…shit happened” with records both the FBI and NSA were ordered to retain; both of those agencies are now actively helping to turn America into a shithole.
“Fidelity, Bravery, Integrity” and “Defending Our Nation. Securing The Future.” are a pawthetic joke. If I’d wanted to live in a banana republic, I’d have moved to one.
And sometimes the banana republic moves to you. Glitches: is there nothing they can’t do?
Mrs Sven made it to Atlanta and ought to be on the last leg of her journey about now. Got this from her: “In Atlanta. Popeyes is the only thing open. Gonna take a nap on the next flight. Feeling squirrelly from no dinner or sleep. I got a couple of minutes on the plane, but we got in a little early ,they had a medical emergency on the flight. Called for a doctor, just like the movies.”
Sorry to read that Mrs. Sven’s commute was less than swell; hope she can make it through her day okay.

They’re pretty good at destroying IRS hard drives, too.
Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Now that the government is shutdown, I’m sure we’ll see even more records disappear. “Hey, it costs money to store those things!”
I was thinking we should get an additional tax cut with the money the shutdown’s saving us. 👿
Random thought, SyFy movie pitch edition:
“Mimenado…no matter how hard you lean into it, it’ll BLOW YOU AWAY!”
“Nobody can run in-place fast enough to escape…Mimenado!”
(Those work better if you “read” them in Don LaFontaine’s voice.)
“Just this once, he was glad to be trapped in that box.”
“Mimenado…you’re gonna need a stronger rope.”
Two wins today: 1) Mrs Sven made it safely to her final destination, and 2) the govt is back in business -- no more cannibalism!
