Teh Squeaky Wheel
For so many reasons, this seems appropriate:
That feels like the last decade.
Hi TeX! How are you feeling today?
Still not feeling all the way there.
Although my quiz scores for Scribe training and assessments on Indeed say otherwise. Which is kind of baffling.
I’ve been drinking plenty of water or Gatorade and minimal caffeine. I think when I go shopping, I’ll give the Pedialyte a go just to see if there’s any difference (although since I’ve been taking Zinc since February I can’t imagine what else it’ll add.)
I think it’ll be a few more days before I get any spring back in my step. ‘Sides, it’s farking HOT out there.
Rest up, Tex.
Hello, Fatwa. Good morning, GN.
A very Houston feel to the day out here -- Possible storms, windy, and cloudy. That will disappear soon and then it’s sun straight on into next week. Glad Fatwa’s crew isn’t working in it in the Valley. At least I hope they aren’t.
Lake Fire is still growing -- up to 10,000 acres now.
I believe the guys are doing some work in Hancock Park today.
Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Sven -- Mrs. Paddy just made the same comment regarding the weather.
Fatwa -- great logo!
Teh Younger has been looking to get back to Florida ever since he moved back to California. His impetus to move has just taken on a bit more urgency.
His place of employment conducts public education about all things ocean-related. They used to have three ships -- the brig Pilgrim, a floating museum that would host overnight education programs for 4th grade students (which unfortunately sank earlier this year); the sloop Spirit of Dana Point, which is used for living history and at-sea maritime programs; and the research vessel Sea Explorer, which takes the public on whale watching trips and during the school year hosts school groups while they trawl for plankton samples, take sea-floor samples, and do water quality checks. Over the summer they’ve figured out how to continue whale-watching trips with reduced capacity and extensive cleaning. Starting Saturday, they’re going to run 9 straight days of whale watching tours. At the end of this month, however, the insurance is up for renewal and the sinking of the Pilgrim means a big increase in rates. The management has decided to hibernate both the Spirit and the Sea Explorer as of Sept. 1, and has told the captain of the Sea Explorer, the most senior employee, that there is no place for him in the new organization. He’s tendered his resignation effective Aug. 29. How they think they’ll survive without those ships is beyond me. Where they think they’ll get another captain with his knowledge and experience, who will work for what he does when they decide to take the ships out of mothballs is another question. Working on the Sea Explorer is what Teh Younger enjoys, not the classroom instruction. It’s time to leave. Now he just needs to find another job in his field.
That bites. I suppose all that knowledge and experience just makes him resistant to the new indoctrination. When the time comes I am sure the State Schools can produce a candidate of proper ideological purity, much more important in our new world order than knowledge or competence.
Several more fires breaking out across SoCal. https://twitter.com/CAFireScanner
