Uugghh...

Going to miss two trash days in a row cause of all the work I've been doing. What a waste only putting out one barely filled can tomorrow. Last night of work will be Friday and by Sunday I'm going to be all jammed up again.

Going to have to throw out some random piece of smaller furniture along with it to feel like at least something is going out.

Oh well. At least everything is empty now.

Well, my hands are hurting after the bit I did yesterday. Found another clock and have to put a battery into it to see if it still works.

It's A NU START!

I think I was posting that about me. It might have been Wishy though. Depends on what my mood was that day.

I don't even know man. I'll post it again here if all you were looking for is the image.



Found a few others that I can't believe were actually printed in the same image search...

I don't know if you ever watched Arrested Development or not, but that's where the ANUSTART plate came from. Tobias (played insanely hilariously by David Cross) was married to the protagonist's flakey sister. Everybody pretty much assumes the guy is a closeted homosexual, and if I remember right it's unclear if they've ever "made love" in the history of their marriage.

She pretty much married him to piss her rich parents off. He's pretty much a failed therapist and author. Fairly early on in the show, he made business cards joining the words "Analyst" and "Therapist" that said he was an "Analrapist". lol

A few seasons later when he and his wife took some time off from each other, he got the "A New Start" license plates "ANUSTART".

The running gag with him, that surprisingly never got old, is that pretty much everything he says or does implies that he's gay, and even though he's a therapist he's the only one who never figured it out.

I think my favorite example besides the two above was when he was inspired by watching Mrs. Doubtfire and he dressed up as a female nanny with a British accent (everybody knew it was him, including his daughter, but didn't say anything). He was making breakfast for everyone and was calling the sausages "Bangers" and said in a Marry Poppins sing-songy kind of way "Who wants a banger in the mouth?... Oh, I forgot! Here in the states you call it a sausage in the mouth."


But yeah, I thought it was funny to see those other plates were actually made in the google image search when I looked it up.

I've heard of Arrested Development but never watched it. Think I knew the lead character was a therapist but that is all.

Seen Mrs. Doubtfire years ago. Robin Williams was pretty funny in it and the kids were great actors in. The little girl was good especially when she repeated his line, "We're his damn kids too."

I was just wondering if the Anus Tart of Nilbog had relocated to North Carolina, or if BungBetty had some competition for Anus Tart in NC.


So was this show set in North Carolina?

Nah... Arrested Development was set in California. Looks like a few fans from a few different states got those vanity plates after the show. I didn't find one in Indiana, but there probably is one.


Here's some other good ones...

I once saw one in WI that I wondered how they got it past the censors.

It looked like BITCH. On a pickup truck, in the middle of the rear bumper. From an angle I saw that there was a trailer hitch in the center, and the plate itself read BI CH. This was in Madison, Homosexual Capital of the World (City by per capita) - so I still didn't know how the censors weren't aware of the slang.

Slang?

I mean, it's a cuss word... but it wasn't originally. Even used derogatorily, it has a few meanings. For example, "Bottom bitch" has a much different connotation than "She's a real bitch".

Curious word, "bitch".

Dave Cross wasn't the lead. I think you were supposed to think of his BIL Michael as the protagonist, at least in the original FOX seasons before Netflix picked it up, but it was an ensemble cast that usually got a pretty equal amount of screen time. For many, Cross's character stole the show in every scene he was in though.



You should check it out when you've got free time. It's the show that ruined any sitcom with a laugh track for me.

I meant BI-sexual CHannel. BI is/was slang, or abbreviation, for BIsexual. Plates with sexual connotations are not supposed to be allowed. In WI, applying for personal plates requires you to provide explanation for what your requested plate means, what it refers to. I've had several.
I still cannot imagine what they used to explain BI CH. Unless the couple are Billy Ignoramus and Candy Hump.

Hey KIKI, in case you missed it

1,000 Quakes In 3 Weeks In Key SoCal Seismic Zone: "We're Watching This Actvity Closely"

In a key seismic zone approximately 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles, there have been more than 1,000 earthquakes since May 25th.

Needless to say, it would be quite alarming for the entire state of California to experience more than 1,000 significant earthquakes in just 3 weeks, but in this case we are talking about an area that is “less than a square mile” in size.

And what makes this even more concerning is that all of these earthquakes are happening in a location that is very close to the San Andreas Fault. Could it be possible that the San Andreas Fault is about to wake up in a major way? I don’t know about you, but if I was living in southern California right now I would find this sort of news to be extremely unsettling…

A flurry of more than 1,000 small earthquakes has rattled Southern California over the past three weeks.

The quakes have occurred in an area covering less than a square mile in San Bernardino and Riverside counties roughly 40 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.

The United States Geological Survey map depicting the uptick in seismic activity shows a thick collection of dots, a rather unsettling sight.



Of course it is perfectly normal for California to experience earthquakes. They happen on a daily basis, and normally they aren’t anything to be too concerned about.

But to have this many earthquakes concentrated in an extremely limited area is definitely unusual. According to USGS science advisor Ken Hudnut, this current earthquake swarm is “a little different than what we’ve seen before”…

“In detail, if you zoom in on it and look at the pattern and how it’s evolving in time, it’s a little different than what we’ve seen before,” he says. “We get these swarms, but we don’t see exact repeats. Obviously, it’s very disruptive to the people who are feeling these earthquakes. We’re watching this activity closely.”

Normally, earthquake swarms subside after a certain period of time. But so far there are no signs that this swarm is going to end. Instead, we just keep seeing quake after quake.

That doesn’t mean that a major event is imminent, but without a doubt there are good reasons to be concerned about what is happening. As geophysicist Andrea Llenos recently explained, every small earthquake increases the likelihood that there will be more seismic activity, and she stressed that we “do know a big earthquake is going to happen” someday…

But “any time you have an increase in the number of small earthquakes,” according to Andrea Llenos, a research geophysicist with the US Geological Survey, “you’re likely to increase the likelihood of a slightly larger earthquake happening.”

“I would redefine normal as: You should still be prepared for a large earthquake,” Llenos told the paper. “We do know a big earthquake is going to happen.”

Californians have been hearing that the “Big One” is going to hit the San Andreas Fault for a very long time.

We even had a major Hollywood movie starring the Rock made about such a quake, but it still hasn’t happened yet.

But one day it will. In fact, the chair of UCLA’s Civil and Environmental Engineering department insists that such a quake is “an existential threat to our economy, our ability to live here”…

“There is no fault that is more likely to break [in California] than the San Andreas Fault,” says Jonathan P. Stewart, professor and chair of UCLA’s Civil and Environmental Engineering department and an expert in earthquakes. “Small local earthquakes—the Northridge earthquake, the San Fernando earthquake—they can kill people in the dozens, they can have freeways coming down, they can affect dams, and all of that is bad,” he says.

“But it doesn’t really pose an existential threat to our economy, our ability to live here.” A large earthquake on the San Andreas Fault, on the other hand, he says, could create a devastating threat to humanity, infrastructure, and the economy, with implications that extend nationally and even globally

Now I think we both know that ZH is always screaming about the end of SOMETHING, so just in case this was a case of ZH disaster-mongering I checked it out with CalTech/ Lucy Jones. Basically, the swarm (n Fontana) isn't near any large fault, and there is a only a 5% chance that this swarm will result in something big.

Still, it's a good reminder to BE PREPARED. So I emptied and refilled my emergency water barrels and (since they'd been sitting around for a few years and grew a fantastic case of water mold, and I wasn't able to clean them thoroughly, not having a power washer) I made sure I knew where the hand-operated filter was that can turn cleanish water into potable water.

I've been keeping track through LATimes which mentioned it. But this is truly weird:

Within a square mile?? That would put it 20 miles east of me.

I have 3 gallons of water in the car and a bag of dry cat food. Plus a small carry-around minor first aid kit for my purse. I should get more water as an immediate precaution.

I wonder if this link will show up:

ia-93225-united-states




The swarm is about 20mi east of me and a bit south, and about 8 or 9mi west of the west branch of the San Andreas.

Anyway - I wonder if there's an underground water pipeline in the area that's leaking and creating a sinkhole that hasn't ruptured yet.

It's hard to see from this format, but if you go to the webpage https://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/map/ zoom in on the appropriate area and select the right display settings, you'll see that most of the earthquakes are extremely small and extremely shallow. It sure is a puzzle.

I mean, it's a cuss word... but it wasn't originally. Even used derogatorily, it has a few meanings. For example, "Bottom bitch" has a much different connotation than "She's a real bitch".

Curious word, "bitch".

Do Right, Be Right. :)

I meant BI-sexual CHannel. BI is/was slang, or abbreviation, for BIsexual. Plates with sexual connotations are not supposed to be allowed. In WI, applying for personal plates requires you to provide explanation for what your requested plate means, what it refers to. I've had several.
I still cannot imagine what they used to explain BI CH. Unless the couple are Billy Ignoramus and Candy Hump.



Oh. I didn't even know BI CH was a thing.

The only sexual/homosexual connotations I would have made with the word Bitch itself would be the aforementioned "Bottom Bitch", or Elton John's "The Bitch is Back".

Although, does The Bitch is Back count since nobody knew he was gay back then?

Do Right, Be Right. :)

Sweet! They're probably nicer than what I had anyways. It was a small table for two with high bar-style chairs. I got it at Target. It was actually pretty great considering where I got it from. If you don't have an IKEA close and want some decent furniture, skip Walmart and go to Target. Their quality is quite a bit higher.

I am PISSED right now...

My manager is great. She's the one I strongly advised to take the team lead position offered to her and because of being in the right place at the right time they fast tracked her to management only several months later. She's been killing it, IMO.

Yesterday, well after I left for the day, the new Head Jagoff In Charge had a meeting with all the Team Leads and told her to stick around. All of the Team Leads are getting a $3/hr bump in pay. Great, right? No.

The plan going forward for the company is to eliminate ALL MANAGEMENT except for the Store Managers. They'll pay the Team Leads a few extra bucks per hour to take on all of the responsibilities that the MUCH HIGHER PAID Managers used to have to do.

FUCKERS.

Head Jagoff In Charge told my manager after the meeting, rather unceremoniously and with the soullessness of the robot I already knew he was, that she "had better polish up her resume because the last one in is the first one out".


So please. Let me hear again from somebody how great the freakin' economy is doing right now.


I had to leave earlier than I normally would today and I will be doing the same tomorrow, my last day there. It's best for both of us if I never see HJIC again.

I could tell she was almost crying when she told me this. If it were five years ago I would have given her a hug, but yanno, it's gotten to the point that you can't even give a fucking hug to somebody to console them without worrying about somebody #MeToo'ing you in 2019.

When is that apocalypse coming again? I'm going to have to double my hamburger intake so more cows fart.

This world is fucked and the rich people are squarely to blame.

Do Right, Be Right. :)

This round table has regular chairs with it which is better for me and anyone I have over.

We don't have Target in Canada anymore. They tried that experiment over a year ago and it failed. So they all closed down. I like Ikea as now I need a couch. But I would need another ride and help to get there and back with any boxes I found.

Going to pick up a table cloth and a couple of cushions for one chair today when I am out.

I meant BI-sexual CHannel. BI is/was slang, or abbreviation, for BIsexual. Plates with sexual connotations are not supposed to be allowed. In WI, applying for personal plates requires you to provide explanation for what your requested plate means, what it refers to. I've had several.
I still cannot imagine what they used to explain BI CH. Unless the couple are Billy Ignoramus and Candy Hump.

Oh. I didn't even know BI CH was a thing.

The only sexual/homosexual connotations I would have made with the word Bitch itself would be the aforementioned "Bottom Bitch", or Elton John's "The Bitch is Back".

Although, does The Bitch is Back count since nobody knew he was gay back then?

Yesterday, well after I left for the day, the new Head Jagoff In Charge had a meeting with all the Team Leads and told her to stick around. All of the Team Leads are getting a $3/hr bump in pay. Great, right? No.

The plan going forward for the company is to eliminate ALL MANAGEMENT except for the Store Managers. They'll pay the Team Leads a few extra bucks per hour to take on all of the responsibilities that the MUCH HIGHER PAID Managers used to have to do.

FUCKERS.

Head Jagoff In Charge told my manager after the meeting, rather unceremoniously and with the soullessness of the robot I already knew he was, that she "had better polish up her resume because the last one in is the first one out".


So please. Let me hear again from somebody how great the freakin' economy is doing right now.


I had to leave earlier than I normally would today and I will be doing the same tomorrow, my last day there. It's best for both of us if I never see HJIC again.

I could tell she was almost crying when she told me this. If it were five years ago I would have given her a hug, but yanno, it's gotten to the point that you can't even give a fucking hug to somebody to console them without worrying about somebody #MeToo'ing you in 2019.

When is that apocalypse coming again? I'm going to have to double my hamburger intake so more cows fart.

This world is fucked and the rich people are squarely to blame.

Do Right, Be Right. :)



And yet, they keep telling us American is a meritocracy. Damn those fucking shit heads!



America? The freakin' company itself spouted that lie from day one. All I heard in my interview, from the HR woman (who was laid off 6 months ago) and the Orientation videos is how the company is run on merit and not seniority.

Over the last few weeks when my manager would express her concerns about that and think she made a mistake buying her first new car, I told her to just keep doing what she is doing and she should be fine. If this guy was really looking to improve the store he should be looking for the best managers and she's already a lot better than some of them even though she was so new at it. Working overnights will turn you into a soldier pretty quick. Managing overnights will turn you into a general, relatively speaking to the day side managers who's only real obligation is customer satisfaction and constantly exerting their ability to blame any and all problems squarely on a night shift that is going away tomorrow.

That kind of gets thrown right out the window though when they're going to fire all of them and replace them with cheaper help.

And yes, it will be a straight up firing. They will not remove existing team leads and demote these managers. Why on earth would a company doing this want a bunch of disgruntled management who are making half of their current pay and benefits to stick around when they can have a bunch of semi-kids running the show who just got big pay raises instead? (Number 2 confided in me that last year he made $98,000 and had 8 weeks of vacation so he is stuck with the new changes and actually envies me. That was a few hours before this new news hit yesterday. When I saw him this morning running a forklift, he had the same look on his face that my manager had last night. Not being one to rub salt in the wounds of people I like, I didn't say anything beyond "hi" to him while he was working).

There's nowhere up to go now for any of them (The Team Leads). The HJIC is running the store right now because his corporate job was eliminated. I wouldn't be surprised if they threw his ass under the bus in the next 5 years as well, and gave one lucky team lead the position for what they used to pay an associate manager before they all got fired.

The entire company is being gutted, and I hear that within 5 years they plan on being online order only because they're being killed by Amazon.

Yeah. I probably shouldn't have phrased it that way. Especially with 20/20 hindsight goggles we have today.

The kids didn't though, or at least some of them. I remember when I was a kid my mom told me she had a crush on Elton John when she was young and was heartbroken when she found out she wasn't his type.

Going to pick up a table cloth and a couple of cushions for one chair today when I am out.



Yeah. IKEA has some pretty great stuff if you're in the market for cheaper put-it-together-yourself furniture compared to the big box stores. I've never been to one before though. They always seem to be so damn far away no matter where I've lived in my life.

As big of a household name they are, I was quite surprised to find out that there are less than 60 of them in the US.

Over the years I have had a couple of book cases from them. They were good too. And I don't mind putting things together myself. I did that a lot for my mom when she was alive. *L* She'd buy things at times that were kits and then ask me to put them together. So, I'm used to it.

The closest Ikea to me, I can get there on a bus. But like I said if I find anything I like...welp that is another kettle of fish.

Well... I had one hell of a heartwarming sendoff today.

As I was wrapping up the sweeping for the night, my manager was headed my way and said "I don't care if you don't like hugs, you're getting one!". As I hugged her back I told her that she's going to make one hell of a manger and she's already better than half of them we've got right now.

The team lead came down a minute or two later and looked like she was about to tear up a bit and said "I'm not good at this." I opened my arms and said "come here!" we hugged and I told her not to let them give her any shit because she's way too good for that.

A lot of "Everything's gonna be alright"'s and "I'll figure out what I'm going to do when I get there"'s were said while saying goodbye to my work family. Some numbers were exchanged. Who knows? Maybe I'll actually keep in touch with them this time. That would be a first for me.


I think I'm going to take a nice break for a few days while it's raining. Decompress. Get a to-do list together. Then get to kicking some ass and starting the next chapter of my life off the right way.

I've doubled my bank account and got the body of a 20 year old back again in the last year and a half there. I'm sober for over 2 1/2 years now.

Whoever gets my services next is going to be lucky to have me.

Man, I don't know what to say. The HJIC was brought in just to fire people. He's called the "hatchet man" or the "hit man" or "the terminator" or any number of other names, but that's his job. They don't want the regular managment team to do the firing because there would be too much bad blood and the store would never function properly afterwards, and I'll bet you dollars to donuts he'll be gone is six months, and at another store firing more people someplace else. They have this down to a science.

I feel sorry for your manager. It's hard to find a job when everyone else from the same store is looking for the same kind of job. I hope she lands on her feet. At lest she'll get unemployment.

I hope you keep in touch too, SIX. People spend such a large part of their lives at work and oftentimes it's the only place where you have time to make friends.

Family is making progress in fits and starts. We pounded nails out of an old bookshelf that we're going to keep, took the old furniture out of the back bedroom where we had been painting and put it into the den that we had just cleared. Dear daughter and I need to clean the paint spots off the floor, and the room will be ready for our furniture.

I need to measure the old metal bedframe and see if it fits dear daughter's mattress. If it does, and the box springs also fit, then her bed will be ready to set up once we paint her room. (She envisions a very complicated five-color scheme, in stripes no less. It'll be an interesting paint job!)

But in the middle of fixing dinner the kitchen sink stopped up completely. It wasn't in the P-trap or anywhere near the cleanout, but far down the pipe where somebody had kludged a part of the waste line that doubled back on itself, making snaking it out totally impossible. So the sink is still mostly stopped up, and we're looking at replacing about 12' of waste line to join up smoothly with the main waste line. We've known for years that there was something hinky about that connection, I've never used the disposal to actually dispose of anything, just to chop up the bits and pieces from dishwashing (and I scrape my dishes thoroughly before washing.) because it's a complete pain in the ass to snake. Apparently the pipe is corroded because it doesn't drain completely - not so much of an issue because waste lines aren't pressurized - but the corrosion has formed bosses and lumps that trap waste and grow muck, which is why it stopped up.

ARGHHHHHHHHHH! on your behalf.

I keep waiting for a main waste-line problem to wreak havoc myself. I don't entirely know WHY I think there's a problem just waiting to pounce - besides that it's probably over 60 years old, and was likely clay pipe, in earthquake country - but I do.

I guess you can cut-in stripes with mostly straight lines with one color, and when the paint dries use painter's tape to overpaint a really straight line between the two ...

I'm a dummy. I can't believe I didn't think of this even though I've been through it all before.

You're probably right about him. The story that's been floated around is that his old job at corporate had been eliminated and he's taking over as interim store manager with our old store manager on leave. But nobody expects her to come back and they think he's going to keep it since his old job is gone.

But doing this probably IS his job now.

Oh well. Not like telling anybody that would have helped anybody out anyhow. Chances are that the old manger is never going to come back and would be pushed out quickly if she tried. If the company has another replacement picked out for the job they're going to be a lot more like the new guy than the old manager.

Goodbye, kind world (George Monbiot) - In common with all those generations which have contemplated catastrophe, we appear to be incapable of understanding what confronts us.


FWIW I have FINALLY finished my 'utility closet'. I have exactly 2 closets in the house - the bedroom closet and the utility closet, so storage space is currently very limited. My utility closet (with a tall set of shelves in the back; hooks on the inside front wall; and a tall stepladder hanging on the inside of the door) is full from top to bottom. But it has everything from the vacuum cleaner to paper lunch bags to shampoo, so it's not as if I have too much stuff. I think it's reasonably well organized and handy, with categories collected in crates on the shelves. We'll see how it works.

I rewarded myself with something interesting. The people who make the formed concrete products I wanted won't sell them to me (they sell to large-scale construction projects like freeway retaining walls). Well, they will sell some mismatched things to me but won't deliver such small quantities. Each pallet is over 3,500 pounds, the place is a few hundred miles away, and the YRC shipping company lift-gate limit is 2000 pounds.

So I'm looking into pouring them myself. I looked into the recipe for 5000+psi concrete, reusable, adjustable steel concrete forms, and how to dye concrete in case I want to make it look more like natural stone. Of course I don't remember almost all of it! But the takeaway lesson is that these are perfectly routine things to do that shouldn't present impenetrable roadblocks. It basically comes down to some combination of time, effort, and money. That makes looking into it further promising.
