After all the miles and all the years, I've finally made contact with my birth family. Going to see my little brother for the first time on Sunday.

The goose bumps are real!

I'm liking this warmer weather. My body feels better with less aches and pains. And I was in an unusually good mood today.

My dogs and cat..
who hate each other most of the time, but decided to be close knit pals while they all camped out with me on the electric blanket.

For years I have been saying that it is stupid to tie health insurance to your job. Like you must be healthy enough to work a full time job to deserve health care. Where is the logic in that? What if you cannot work because you are sick? We do not depend on our employers for other types of insurance. Recently, both Seth Meyers and John Oliver have alluded to this stupidity, so I am glad that this issue may finally come into greater public discussion.

Years ago, my former therapist told me the reason employers in the USA began offering health insurance was a result of World War II. During that time when so many people were fighting the war, companies had a hard time finding workers. They began luring employees from other companies by offering more pay, so Congress passed a law to freeze wages. However, they left a glaring loophole by not freezing benefits. So employees began offering health insurance to entice workers. Unfortunately, this remnant of World War II is still with us today. As beneficial as the Affordable Care Act has been to millions of Americans, it has further deepened employers' roles to providing health insurance. I agree with Bernie Sanders that this nation needs government funded universal healthcare, but I also know that it will not happen over night or without compromise. It will need to be done in steps and the federal government will probably have to buy out the health insurance companies.
Privatise the profitable, centralise the failures. Money, money, money.

What made me happy today? Not crumbling under the pressures of work. Felt good giving the proverbial finger to the powers at be. Finally my experience sang through saying there is another way. I plan to follow the advice. :) Dunno about you guys, but one too many times I've been trapped by my own self-imposed limitations. Not saying I'm the buddha or anything, but neither am I saying I'm a ripe ass waiting to be fucked.

I think I'm over yesterday's anguish and I'm off tomorrow. I like Tuesdays off.

A Pokemon deliberately designed to be broken can kill a sheep. No shit Sherlock.
Sounds like your not up for a challenge of Pokemon battles?
I was doing the Pokemon game when they first came out with the competition cards, my son's first card deck's
were massive, because he would just trade his unwanted stuff that he had for the cards.

Today could have sucked but it went well at work. Get home and there's a package on the porch. Album packaging. Okay, I got a delivery yesterday but maybe this is a leftover. The neighbor lady was outside, so I was forced to talk to her. I notice there's a small box in there. WTF, I didn't order anything like that. While talking, I notice a friend's name on the label. He said he was going to send me an album. Cool! But what's in that box?

LMFAO!

When I take a nice long drink of a beverage, and realize I've been dehydrated. Feels so good to actually take care of my body somewhat. I need to start drinking more water. I recently bought a nice water bottle.

Now you can prank your coworkers by attaching those labels to various items at work: knives, hoses, boxes of vinyl gloves, ... 😏

Let us know what you do with them.

Nah, that wouldn't go over well in a PC environment and I don't know anyone well enough to prank. (well, maybe my manager when he gets back from vacation on Sunday)

I really like the album, though. Gave it a listen yesterday after work. I like the guitar and harmonica. And the lyrics are witty and funny.

I worked at my old store this morning. I heard they were looking for help, so I volunteered myself on my day off if they wanted or needed me. They really didn’t need me and I spent more effort on talking than working. It was nice to see some old and familiar faces. And I’m getting time and a half for it.

I could put this in the the Hate thread - I didn’t like what I saw there. It’s a fucking shit show and they have issues.

I've worked a few stores. They are always a mess.

EDIT: I'm tired and left work. I'm feeling good today.

Oh my lord, I am gonna come first and get a gold medal in a golf clash tournament, I am literally floating on cloud 9, Everything dropped, I’ll be 1st out of 400 unless some ridiculous cunt can do better but I can’t see anyone beating my +29, I am not one but two points ahead of the guy in 2nd place, happy ain’t the word. I’m gonna have that gold, not even silver not even bronze motherfucking gold 🤓

Weird thing is the name of this golf tournament is the same name as the area where I actually live lol wtf

And I am now in a Japanese golf clan, I will never leave these boys, they are my lucky stars

What is the name of the tournament? Playing with foreign people is always a fun experience. Maybe I should install this game again, because my new phone doesn't suck.

You can’t play against your clan mates, just chat an shit, obviously I can’t understand a single word my clan mates say which is fine by me.. your opponents are picked at random from anywhere in the world from opposing clans, I’m not telling you where I live 🤣

Usually, giving Mookie (my cat) his subq fluid is a 2 person job. One to keep him still and keep the needle in and one to give him his kitty gogurt treat and watch the level on the fluid bag.

Today was a solo event that went super smooth! His little face while licking his treat tube distraction makes me smile!
