Moo.

HELLO FROM REHAB!!!!   Not sure if anything's been shared but Sunday dinner at my parents' a couple weeks ago was in fact an elaborate ruse to stage an intervention.  Actually it wasn't very

Everybody take a minute tonight (or today) to raise a glass to HeckDad.  My sister just called to tell me that he passed away at home.  Don't have details other than he fell, but he was 94 with a bad

Client is saying I’ll be wfh full time until until at least 6/1 and 80% wfh after that for an undetermined amount of time. If I don’t win another 5 years on the contract, I’m good through August and then it’s adios.

Wife has been with her employer for 19 years, working for an artist/non-businessperson.  Lots of frustrations.  Way under-paid, but enjoyed the job for the most part despite the frustrations of a terrible owner making bad business decisions but still loving her personally (hope that makes sense).  Last June she gave a 1 year notice.  Yes, 1 year.  My wife essentially manages the business and was finally like "I've had enough, I want to spend time at home, my husband makes enough dollars, I want to be done."  They took her notice with gratitude and promises of working on replacing her.

Flash forward to the pandemic.  One of the two gals (***2***) who was supposed to replace my wife moved away, and the other is pregnant and due early July.  In the last month my wife got a 10% raise.  Last night she got a very friendly email inviting her to extend her going-away for as long as she'd like, as many hours/week as she'd like, with a 25% raise.  Which would put her just above what I figure she should have been making the last few years.  Tomorrow she will accept their offer at full hours.

Long story short, at least she'll be paid well and that is good for us.  Also she won't be bored at home, which is VERY good for me.  :banned:

I think maybe some folks got the wrong idea. I’m not losing my job. The likelihood of me winning another 5 years with the current client is pretty high since I’ve done more for them in 1.5 years than the previous consultant did in 3.5 years (they did arguably next to nothing and billed a boatload). Even if I don’t win the contract, my company has plenty of other contracts with similar public entities (state) across the state that I’ll be plugged into. In addition, there’s another contract I can work on (if my company wins it) for the client if they wish it. I was actually splitting my time between contracts before this COVID crap.
 

Basically if the client is dumb enough to let me walk away, they’re gonna be screwed for a while and my life gets easier. :)

Going to the doc this afternoon, still sounds like a hockey goal was scored in my right ear. 

I hope it's nothing serious.  Feel better

Just found out that our beloved German Shepherd has a very bad cancer. His prognosis is quite poor. We are just gutted.

My oldest son is taking his physics AP test in our conference room at work because taking a test at our house would be like trying to take a test on the set of a wacky Japanese game show where everybody screams, there's lots of strange crying and pies get thrown at random intervals.  


Kinda nice having him here.  Happy Take your 17 year old Son to Work Day, everybody!  Also, happy birthday, K4!

Gwenyth Paltrow said in an interview that we should take this time to learn a new language or write a book.  I just shook cookie crumbles off my t-shirt and I don’t know what day it is.  I’m pretty sure I won’t be doing either of those things.

We had to put down our 13-year old Cockapoo last week due to cancer.  We took the last two weeks and tried to make everyday special for her.  So hard when there is nothing you can do.  Hang in there....

I've been working on a candle that smells like my shwantz.

My wife is NOT happy about it.

Huh. How many minutes a day are you making sure you have your jade egg shoved up your naughty place and are you making sure you trim your wick when you’re done burning your candle that smells like Paltrow’s hoo-ha?

Sorry about the pets.   I have a love/hate relationship with Murdercat, but it will break my heart when she passes.   Then again, I cut my foot the other day and in the middle of the night she smelled the blood and literally tried to eat my foot.   She'll probably outlive me.  

Just won $350 on the 9th race at Santa Anita.

If cats ran Home Depot – “Welcome to Home Depot.  Go find it yourself.”

Won the soundtrack LP as a prize for being the first in my 3rd grade class to complete all the multiplication tables. It was a major award.

The strings are obvious at times. I so wanted the lunchbox when I was a kid. Maximilian scared the #### out of me. Not bad for 1979 imo.

Do you guys know if there's a reasonably priced reusable face mask that makes a Darth Vader sound when I breath?

I'd also like to know if it comes with a built-in bacterial respiratory infection.
