And payday! And bill pay day! So…LOL.
So, Aunt Jemima is going away. I’m not going to lie, most of my life my dumb ass had zero idea of the crazy racist origins of the brand and just thought it was a friendly lady in old timey clothes. Yeah, we should probably ditch it.
And it’s been decided that all three of us are in for the beach, assuming North Carolina & Dare County are still open. The rental agency is doing enhanced cleaning, and linens already show up cleaned and shrink-wrapped as it is. They did say to bring your own blankets and paper products. Lots of restaurants are doing takeaway, the beach is never “can’t stay 6 feet away” crowded, and even if it is – we have turtle beach in the back of the house. And we spend an inordinate amount of time just drinking beer and reading books on the porch anyway. I can’t speak for anyone else in the crew, but I am desperately in need of a change of scenery and some salt air.
And my god, it’s good to have something to look forward to.
On the work front, my local partner in crime told our boss about the avalanche of work dumped on us from the other side of the world. He sent a note back to them (paraphrased) of, “LOL, no, they have other shit to do, spread it amongst the rest of the team or change the deadline.” So, things are back under control there, and I’m not looking at a repeat of this time last year where I was killing myself to go on leave.
So, good stuff all around this morning.
