Small Unworthy Things, Starting with Blue Monday

I love Bill Maher. Funny enough I didn’t used to like him but started watching his show more often when I got HBO and now he’s one of a very few shows that I actually make an effort to keep up with. Don’t agree with him on everything but I think he ranks pretty low on the list of America’s problems and he does hit it right on the head sometimes.

I like Bill Maher. Sometimes his bluntness makes me cringe, but his persistent criticism of religion more than makes up for his occasional rudeness in my book.

I watched Hamilton on the Disney+ Channel, loved it.

Dang straight.

Better listen to one of those songs right now. 
 

Satisfied.

I'm tired of using a push mower, so I went and bought a riding mower from Lowe's.

That works. 
 

You weren’t interested in a self propelled push mower?

I’m now reading the book that inspired the musical.   :read:   So far so good (just a few chapters in).

My son loves Hamilton.

I think it's so neat to see how it reaches across generations to stimulate his interest in an area that, lets be honest, has traditionally been a tad boring for many youngsters to learn about.

A few days ago, I heard a report on the radio that it's been ten years since the first season of GoT. It made me feel very old. Ten years ... where did that go?

Weird coincidence- I’m about to start a rewatch tonight, see how it looks on my UltraHD TV. 
 

As a total pandemix indulgence, I just ordered the reissue of the G1 Transformers Protectobots set (5 Transformers that can combine into a giant robot called Defensor.)

I really wanted this when I was 7, and never managed to get any of the combiner sets.

Hopefully will arrive on a day my wife’s at work so I don’t have to explain it.

Just call it forward planning for a present for your child when they’re older :P

Why are hamburgers made of beef, yet ham is a type of pork?  The English language is very confusing sometimes.

Now now, don’t blame the English for this, it’s actually a reference to a dish originally made in Hamburg. Like frankfurter refers to Frankfurt and wiener refers to Vienna, or Wien.

It's been so much quieter out here since the cocaine dealer left, to the point I hardly ever hear anything outside anymore. My roommate was on vacation nearly a week until yesterday and I didn't go to bed feeling nervous even once. I honestly used to feel a little afraid when I'd go to sleep at night in here, especially while I was alone. There were always random, rough looking cars and/or people next door at the guy's apartment. I wondered if he wasn't selling drugs before my roommate told me he tried to sell her cocaine. Anyway, the roommate used to smoke (not cocaine lol) outside in her car in our alley parking lot and had had a couple of scary incidences that involved some strange person who had been out there, one of whom who knew the neighbor. So it just seemed like we had shady people coming through, some drawn in by him. I knew that had a lot to do with why I didn't feel too safe here. I hope he's gone for good.

Work email this morning reminding everyone to sign up for "commitment to racism" training.

Followed slightly later by a panicky sounding follow-up, "commitment to tackling racism."

That poor intern who screwed up the email...! I don’t suppose anybody misunderstood, but I do sympathize with the panicked correction.

Don't feel too bad, since it was my manager who sent it. No interns here.
