Natter 77: I miss my friends. I miss my enemies. I miss the people I talked to every day.  

Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

And just that general thing of how rules don't apply to auteurs or artists or geniuses or statesmen or whatever exceptional category any particular actually average but successful white guy can manage to wedge himself in to which did not START with Clinton but could have been beaten back more then and wasn't.

Definitely. I guess what I'm getting at is that applies especially to the men "we" "like" for whatever reason.

Covid tests.gov is up a day early! I just ordered! Got knows when we will actually get them, but it’s something.

Also, y’all may be as entertained as I am by this—the kid is an ex’s (we’re still friends) and it’s cracking me up:

Thrive to spite them

Steph I'm sorry everything is so hard with Tim's dad.

Also the USPS shouldn't treat packages like that.

Absolutely.

OMG that Midnight Society thread is beautiful! Every time I read one I think I should stay on Twitter more just so I can follow Midnight Society but I can never manage it. Thanks for the link, Consuela!

Every time I cough Zoom helpfully tells me I'm muted and I need to unmute if if I want people to hear me. At least I know I'm muted when that happens, I guess.

Friends don't let friends read "Atlas Shrugged"

wow ... I stay muted through most Zoom calls, since I rarely if ever have anything to say (the most I've said is that yes, I'm here and I can hear the call)

To amuse you, the story of two women, three cats and a blender.

If I want to become a cloud of bats, does each bat need a separate vaccination?

I blame Bill Clinton for a lot of this, because we knew he was basically a garbage person, but we were weighing it against the good he could do and gave him a pass. I think that passed along to people like Joss as well, because we were used to it.

This, and also I think it's probably a good thing that we look back every 20 years and think "Holy crap, why did we think that was ever okay." It means we are slowly, gradually, painfully, moving vaguely forward?

Our school district's bus drivers basically all have Covid. Or have quit because of insufficient Covid protections by the DOT. So now every afternoon I get an email from the superintendent with the subject line "URGENT! Status of busing tomorrow" that tells me which buses won't be running due to the driver shortage.

ION I'm going to be working from home forever now because my daughter needs to be driven to and from school every day.

FFS, why don't they build a people mover pneumatic tube system already!
