Teh Squeaky Wheel
Happy Vetting-Pet Tuesday, GN!
I remember the first time I met Jackson teh Boston Terrierist; he was so bouncy and boing-y, he got a bit of foamy saliva on the shoulder of the black mock turtleneck I was wearing. 🙂
(Still miss him.) 🙁
Best to lie low.
I strongly suspect this is your best course of inaction, Sven. Greeting a F-to-M cow-worker with “How’s it hangin’?” would likely not be well received, even though that’s just treating them like “one of the boys”.
Criminy…what a stupid age we live in.
Every time I think peak stupid is right around the corner, there’s always another corner up ahead.
Happy [checks calendar] Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Gov. Nuisance has (surprise!) once again changed the rules for California and the rainbow COVID-19 tier system he created. The number of positive tests has been spiking lately, but the number of hospitalizations and deaths has not been following suit. In fact in my county, hospitalizations have been trending downward. Rather than follow the rules he previously established, he has decided to move most every county back into the most restrictive tier. According to the rules, businesses have three days to adjust to the new restrictions, but not this time! Businesses must comply immediately! Why people continue to vote for this kind of “leadership” is beyond my ken.
Ventura County is the same way, Paddy. Deaths have been trending downwards -- no one has died in the last 14 days. There’s currently 49 people hospitalized with 11 of those in ICU. We have plenty of ventilators and available hospital beds.
In total, 173 people have died from the Chinese Flu. Of those, none in the 0-17 age bracket. 1 in the 18-24 age bracket.
And yet it’s time to shut everything down -- right before the holidays. I’m sure this will help businesses, both small and large.
it will certainly help Jeff Bezos.
(I admit I did all my Christmas Shopping on Amazon already this year. And a bit on http://crypto.fashion
I got Linux Rob one of these, and I had to get myself an xmas present also:
Had an unusual occurrence here this morning. I bought Jack Tatum one of those carpeted trees that he just loves and it’s set up by the patio door so he can look out the window as he naps. Hanging underneath between the scratching posts is a plastic butterfly that he generally ignores, but that he bats around once in a while.
So I was getting out the bird seed next to Tatum’s tree, and I look down on the floor and on his catnip sock is the butterfly. I figured he just finally knocked it off and it landed there. Nope, it’s still hanging in its usual place. I pick up the sock and look closer -- it’s a live butterfly, a Monarch. Not moving much, but fully grown and undamaged. I took it outside and set it on a post away from the birds and kept an eye on it. It flapped its wings a couple of times, but mostly just sat there. Last time I checked, it was gone.
Odd. No idea where it came from or how it ended up where it did.
Hi, Sven and Paddy!
IMHO, Newsom needs to become intimately acquainted with an Esso station and a meathook.
Either that, or the yammering peasants need to simply STFU because they don’t know what’s best for them, else they wouldn’t have elected their betters to rule them. 👿
The mildest rebuke to wanna-be tyrants:
Huh. I had no idea you could upload files/images to posts -- no need for photobucket, eh? I wondered about that over the last several months, but didn’t really research it until today as Fatwa’s images reminded me of it again.
Is there any geekier looking person on the planet than Mark Zuckerberg?
Be sure to give them a nice warm Southern welcome, Fatwa.
Be sure to put in a supply of tar and feathers.
