Course laid in, sir.

Shake your Foodie, again

A friend on Facebook from “Shake your Foodie,” said today:
“When I become President, my first decree will be to make eggnog available year round.”
I think they are technically called executive orders.
You’re technically a dick.”
“yes, and I am happy that we remain, friends, not all of my friendships survive this
“Know this, my beloved brothers:
let every person be quick to hear,
slow to speak, slow to anger; (James 1:19-20)
for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”

First by Cold War Kids

“First you get hurt, then you feel sorry
“Thus, when you give to the needy, sound no trumpet before you,
as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets,
that they may be praised by others. Truly, I say to you,
they have received their reward. But when you give to the needy,
do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing,
so that your giving may be in secret. (Matthew 6:2-4)
And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.”

Humor vampirism 034

A friend on Facebook asked,
“Could you explain that without being at all specific?”
No, because what I said was meant to be funny.
On the other hand, yes, my father bought me a belt and suspenders.
Like two months ago, Wednesday was kind of a bummer at work,
yet online interaction was pleasant during lunch.
Tabitha St. Germain liked how I quoted her tweet:
“And he said, ‘Naked I came from my mother’s womb,
and naked shall I return. The LORD gave,
and the LORD has taken away;
blessed be the name of the LORD.’ (Job 1:21)”
It’s something — Disclaimer: these solutions may not be applicable...
I forgot about the amazingly large slice of red velvet cake on Saturday night, which continued to wreak havoc with my sugar levels for the next three days, so I’d like to blame the orange juice for my erroneous production at work today, but that was not the only thing. I’m going to conclude ice cream isn’t a solution for me.

“But, hey, um, you know, how I’m usually all about women, and -- and people my own age,” yeah, Bill; she has been reminding us every episode, and would have reminded us more if she was vegan, and because that was the depth of her character, so opportunity was wasted on her.

Bringing down the Landslide, My Own Worst Enemy

I am My Own Worst Enemy,” when I allow bad information from a colleague to cause me to worry about a non-existent situation, so I was being especially silly.
A new company now administrates the contract, which I complained about on Tuesday, but it’s not all bad. We are permitted to enter a little earlier because we have to write time in books, which lends itself to greater camaraderie.

I never set up direct deposit with the old system and was not able to access the new system until late this week, so I had been worried paychecks would only be available via post, and not available at work, which was bad information and completely false.

As imperfect a Thursday 055

When I first worked at Arby’s, I attempted to use algebra to express the difference when he would be going home from when another coworker would be leaving for the day, and he politely, yet sternly requested, “Never do any math here again.”
Tonight is the longest night of the year,” so I went to bed at five in the morning to make this day as short as possible; the quality of my day at work is inversely proportional to my day otherwise. Wednesday was awful.

We apologize 031

“Then I’m, again, sorry for this,” yet I remain pleased; my decision to not participate in the holiday dinner was correct, “except the Dave Matthews Band doesn’t rock.”
When I worked Saturdays at Johnson County Community College,
I would visit and recommend SPIN! Neapolitan Pizza on my lunch break.
They are gourmet and have gelato and wine.

Unfortunately, lunch for everyone was delayed at least twenty minutes, the queues were long, and were not worth it; The Girl Next Door agreed with my assessment.
Collectively, the transition to new processes and software is frustrating. My problems with passwords cause my boss to say, “You’re killing me, Smalls.”
Honestly, “It’s like that movie with Tom Cruise.”

A Bad Reflection on You, Part 3

Another company bought out the other contracting company, so we all have to write in books four times a day, when we arrive at work, leave for lunch, return from lunch, and leave for the day. And we can have two slices of pizza tomorrow at the annual holiday dinner.

The Good Guys and the Bad Guys

A subscription to Amazon Prime means Josh and I want to get together earlier and watch a little more of The Grand Tour, which we started last Sunday. “The Good Guys and the Bad Guys” was a song from Any Which Way You Can, which I was watching on Grit:

On a side note, I have 9 days off in a row afterward. Maybe we could hang out on Saturday or Sunday this weekend also.
Bennigan and I met at the KC Super Buffet ahead of Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Saturday I bought Jersey Mike’s Subs and we watched Zoolander and “Best of the Worst: Wheel of the Worst #16,” most recently from Red Letter Media.

Melina Kanakaredes

Five years ago, my mother suffered an aggressive cancer of the liver and passed away three months later; however, she was able to be home for six of those weeks.
Perhaps more known for Guiding Light, Melina Kanakaredes also appeared a short-lived primetime drama Providence, where the mother of her character visited her dreams.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

Gamble Rumble

Race Queen Fluttershy original ver. by rvceric
Honestly, I was worried about changing policies at work about sick leave, so I can no longer sleep this morning ahead of overtime today; I bought an “Initial D Ugly Sweater,” for “next Friday... Ugly Sweater Day,” since my colleagues tell me my sweaters flatter me.
Mentioning this allows me to segue into “Gamble Rumble,” my favorite song at the moment -- from Initial D: Best Song Collection 1998-2004, this Eurobeat is somewhere between “Perfect Strangers’ Original Theme” and “Doc Hollywood Theme Song” is first heard in Initial D: Third Stage and is the first track on my current mix CD.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight and the sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before he endured the cross, despising the shame, (Hebrews 12:1-2) and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.”

Humor vampirism 033

My friend, with whom I became friends when he made me an admin of his Pony page, also added me to a group for Rooster Teeth, an animation studio which produced Red vs Blue and RWBY among others. My friend is not the author of the following note.
Thankfully, someone in the thread explained the initialism M.D.B. in plain language; a post where one is given a hypothetical situation wherein one is offered a Million Dollars But one must tolerate an undesirable condition or situation as part of the wager:

Hey folks! To add to the post Gavin made, I just want to shed a little more light on the issue of the MDB posts.

Some of you will remember a while ago we had an issue arise where people were upset with lewd RWBY posts. We ended up with a divided community and had an overwhelming amount of people messaging us saying they were uncomfortable with the posts and that they were making them no longer wish to participate in the group. This is obviously something we never, ever want to be the case, and we ended up having to make a very hard ruling to fix the issue. We’re in a similar situation now.

Every year when a new season of MDB starts, scenario posts tend to flood the group. These are all well and good, and we 100% support this kind of community-building activity. However, there is an immense issue with them considering Facebook’s algorithm for relevant posts. Basically, the most active posts will be the posts that are featured most and have an overwhelmingly higher chance to be featured outside of the group. This can cause MDB posts to appear incredibly spammy and makes it so that other content doesn’t appear as often. This is a shortcoming on Facebook’s part really, but it’s, unfortunately, one we have to deal with as part of the platform.

To try and rectify this, I’ll be making a master post for all MDB content moving forward. It will be the stickied post for the duration of this season of MDB, and we ask that any scenarios you would like to present to the group be posted on that post. We will be deleting any MDB content posted outside of that post, and I will do my best to try to copy/paste scenarios posted outside of that post to the comments of the master post for discussion, and tag the original poster.

Thank you all so much for your fantastic feedback and criticisms. Please never hesitate to message me with questions, and have a fantastic day! --Cole

Go out there today and love, encourage and speak light into someone’s darkness. 🤗”

nor of me his prisoner, (2 Timothy 1:8-9)

which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began,”

Whirlwind weekend 041

Tuesday, I asked, “Mußte ich am Samstag arbeiten?”
The short answer was yes, yet only eight of sixteen possible overtime hours were required, so I have an option to work next Saturday and had an option to not work today if I had chosen. Being functional, taking a break, having a snack, and looking at daylight at noon on a Saturday made me nostalgic for those PreACT sessions in high school.
Sunday, I feel nearly as bad as I did on Thursday when I had to go home early. Saturday night, my friend, whom I mention in “Celebratory note 003,” had a celebration for his fiftieth birthday at The Original Margarita’s Restaurant:
“So, last night I did get out and celebrate my birthday, and had a blast. Big thanks go out to everyone who was there - Jennie, Cyndi, Jennifer, Ben, Chris, and Kris. Good friends and great food. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - there’s nothing better in this world than hanging out with people who make you smile. I love you guys! Extra thanks, actually, go to Cyndi, for putting up with me all afternoon, too.”
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering,
for he who promised is faithful. (Hebrews 10:23)”

Illness caused me to go home early on Thursday night. My coughing and sneezing could likely be why The Girl Next Door decided to Just Ghost on Friday night.
After working both Friday and Saturday, I did not want to expose Bennigan or my intermittent coughing to ruin how anyone would experience Justice League, so I canceled our plans Sunday. While I also canceled with Josh, I have caught up my rest.

And now you find yourself in ‘82,” according to a friend of Josh was the best year for movies when we all watched “Too Many Cooks,” and a few weeks before Videodrome.

The Day After

No one wants to work the day after Thanksgiving,
especially those in retail,
but I-I forgot to request a day off so I was there at the office.
My body did not want to be there;
I had aches and pains and emotional turbulence,
but the evening ended better than it started.
Knowing full well that we didn’t have to work either Saturday or Sunday, a female colleague said, “I’m so angry about having to be here today, I’m not going to come in the next two days; that’ll piss ‘em off! How’s that sound to you?”

I wouldn’t want to do anything to upset them,” recently finding myself in an ‘Optimal Situation,’ I replied, “I’m motivated by fear and guilt,” so this first time I had said anything in front of another girl I have had my eye on was made more awkward.
