G’mornin’, GN!

RabBeet would almost certainly like that moth. (Hope she and BW are well.)

Another fun-filled JimCo week…not.

I’m guessing that -- due to the lockdowns and the poor mental health which seems to accompany them -- people in SoCal are obsessing over stuff they normally wouldn’t even notice.

A lot of condo owners are reporting “hearing drips” and other anomalies. So far, the “drips” are caused by water draining off of roofs into gutters (like it’s supposed to) or falling from eaves onto lower sloped roofs (like it’s supposed to).

We’ve been getting calls about all sorts of non-problems…but, being a responsible company, we are obliged to investigate them. We’ve been wasting an inordinate amount of time and energy dealing with “Panicky Priscillas” who have vivid imaginations.

(That’s on top of actual leaks caused by customers’ failures to heed our best recommendations along with more normal roof-related issues.)

Happy Moth-eaten Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!

Fatwa -- I’m sure a lot of the issues you’re facing arise from the fact that so many homeowners are now home during times that they normally wouldn’t be. It’s not unusual for me to hear a “dripping” sound coming from my skylight, but I’ll hear that same sound during the summer in the middle of the day, so I know it isn’t anything leaking. Unfortunately, you get to deal with all the “what’s that sound?” that those people are finally aware of.

Good morning, Fatwa, and Paddy -- happy Tuesday, boys.

I think your customers are just lonely, Fatwa. Lonely and alone stuck at home. YOU are their entertainment and lifeline to the outside world.

Heya, Paddy and Sven!

Paddy --

Folks being stuck at home (and a year of non-stop “fear porn”) is most definitely contributing to this nonsense.

Sven --

I’m categorically not the entertainment they’re looking for; trust me on this one. 👿

That may be true, Fatwa, but you are the entertainment available. Think of yourself as the Lifeline of Hope. It’s a noble calling and I thank you for your service.

Killing some time reading various posts. It’s interesting that anitfa is an “idea” or a “movement” whereas white supremacy is a real thing.

Since the media is not allowed to go inside the illegal alien detention centers to see firsthand what’s going on, if I were a media honcho I’d offer up a $50K bounty for any video and let the ICE guys have a go at it. Those are the new rules now, right? Leaks are OK?

I’m surprised too if none of the detainees don’t have a cell phone amongst their possessions.

Good idea, Sven.

You could put up one of those ads in the breakroom at the ICE station on the border. — the kind people make with phone number tags across the bottom that can be torn off.

CASH REWARD: Video of the inside of the detention centers. Become an undercover hero. Show us what they’re hiding, blah, blah, blah.

I’ll bet folks would do it for much less $ than you think.

I got an email from the tax software I use, providing info on eligibility to receive the California stimulus check. If your AGI is less than $30k, you filed with a SSN, and qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credit -- you get $600.

If your AGI is less than $30k and you filed with an Individual Tax Identification Number (ITIN), you get $1200.

If your AGI is less than $75k and you filed with an ITIN, you get $600.

Hmm, I wonder what sorts of individuals file their taxes with an ITIN, instead of a SSN?
Bottom line: if you’re a citizen and have an AGI of less than $75k, your illegal immigrant neighbor with the same AGI will get $600 and you will get the bill.

Just for the record, that moth looks like George Washington.

I think you mean Martha Washington, the moth-er of our country.

That was an inside joke intended for me: It definitely looks like George Washington, which means it might ACTUALLY look like a fish.

I’ll try and explain teh context of that one someday. It’s pretty funny, but it takes some context.

I was telling Mrs Sven about this story https://www.dailywire.com/news/loudoun-teachers-target-parents-critical-race-theory-hacking and her comment was “Sheesh. These people are worse than Deb Frisch, aren’t they? She was really ahead of her time.”

I’m still enjoying The Cult -- getting much work done with them blaring away. Always liked this tune and the line “You got to bleed a little while you sing lest the words don’t mean a thing.” Thirty years ago Ian Astbury still had the voice.
