Happy Tuesday Firsties, Gerbil Nation!
It’s another beautiful day in paradise!

Now that the Independence Day weekend is over, local beaches are re-opening. Eff you very much, Gov. Noisome. You’ve made it clear this is all about politics.

We’re having a leadership team meeting at work today. Actually at work. As in put on shoes and socks and drive there. Social distancing and wearing masks should make for an interesting day.

Hi, Paddy -- happy Tuesday, GN!

I had a rough day yesterday with teh usual, but today is starting out OK.

Good luck in the real world today, Paddy.

I’ve been reading about the angst caused by actors culturally appropriating roles for which they aren’t like Hallie Barrie, a woman (I guess) going out for a job where she would play a trans-man/woman.

Why was it not a problem for John Legend, a black man, to get the role of Alexander Hamilton, a white man?

It’s almost like there’s an inconsistency there.

When I first saw the thread pic today, I felt bad for the reptile, not the cat -- does that make me a bad gerbil?

Brush fire starting up 1.5 miles from us -- on the plus side, it’s north of us and moving towards the San Fernando Valley. Fatwa ought to be getting a good dose of smoke tho. Not a lot of fuel in that part of the mountains -- homes maybe .5 mile away in its path, but the winds are not strong at all. No fire engines -- helicopter water drops.

Sounds about as good as it could get.

And a new one -- south of us at the old Rocketydyne site.

Under control. We won’t die tonight from a fire, just maybe from systemic racism or the Chinese Flu.

It’s good to have choices, Sven.
