Rained like the dickens all night and now it is not raining.

Which for once is bad, cause we have an afternoon thing we have to do, and I do not WANT to be in the field this one time because it is gonna be sandy loam soup out there.

Maybe I can convince supe we're better off inside

"Hmm... gee, is that a power line down across that muddy bog? Best not go in to investigate. Better call the utility guys just to be sure, and come back tomorrow."

There is a power corridor right through our block....*ponders* AND grape vine. Though no where near the corridor because our guys keep that shit tidy

Iโ€™m still thinking about that roast lamb with pomegranate molasses that I had last night. Some of that needs to find its way into a pita with tzatziki today, I think. Since the whole country is closed for Easter Monday, Iโ€™ll have to make the pita myself, though.

If you have a wok with a clean bottom, and a gas burner to invert it over, you have the makings of a fine Saj for baking pita on. You even get that little brown spon in the center.

Similar situation here, thinking about leftover lamb and tsatski and pita later........ I've never made pita (because I can purchase pretty good versions here), but have heard repeatedly that it's relatively easy.

Really not looking forward to going into work today. It's the first day back after a week off (for all of us, not just me), and this week is going to be a mess thanks to my boss's boss deciding at the last minute that our term didn't end when we thought it did. It's possible we won't even be able to take attendance this morning, because the system still though the term ended before our break when I left. Add in the beard trimmer mishap yesterday that means I just look and feel wrong, in a job where I have to be around dozens of teenagers, and this is going to suck.

Oh God, I remember when I got a bad haircut once and had to go teach the next day. Kids are so mean.

Expand full comment

I misclicked a setting on my beard trimmer, made one pass with it, and realized I had just shaved off a whole chunk of beard. So I had to shave the whole thing off, for the first time in a decade or more.

I would blame Skynet.

Expand full comment

tell em you had to be fitted for a SCBA as part of your Hazwop training

They won't know

Expand full comment

That was the only reason I shaved my beard for twenty years. Well,not SCBA but a respirator for my applicator's license. As soon as the fitting was over, it was already stubble again and I haven't shaved since, thirty years later.

No matter what they say or how they snicker, remember that you MEANT to do that. Keep

them guessing; you're the teacher. (Pro teacher tip.)

Expand full comment

Most of my kids have severe self-confidence issues, though they'd never admit it, so I prefer to be honest with them. Seeing an adult fuck up and admit it has value, too.

Tell them you lost a bet.

Oh absolutely, and that's nicer too: whatever works for you and them, that's the ideal.

Oh dear... that is not a trivial mishap.

Here's hoping your beard grows faster than mine ever could.

After the mistake, though, it was this or mutton chops, so I think I made the right call. It's just going to feel weird for a while.

They literally don't care unless it affects them personally.

"Former U.S. surgeon general Jerome Adams was stuck with an eye-watering medical bill of nearly $5,000 after being treated for a simple case of dehydration following an overnight stay at an Arizona hospital last January.

"Now he's calling for reforms to the country's market-based health care system, including greater transparency around costs and an independent arbitration process โ€” while using his bully pulpit to speak out for the 100 million Americans saddled with medical debt."

"Why Trump's [FORMER, dammit] surgeon general is fighting big medical bills":

Even then, some of them still only care about themselves. They will whine about how the problem affects them, but don't call for reforms to help the rest of us.

I notice how he claims it is a marketbased approach that is the bad thing, and not the ridiculous overhead of hospitals and the even more rapaciousness of insurance companies

Fucking NYT made Connections all emoji this morning. Would have been less of a problem if two of them hadn't failed to load, leaving two spots blank.

I tried letter box and got it after 2 false starts.

Expand full comment

What?

Expand full comment

Connections is a game that usually gives you 16 words, and you have to put them in four groups of four. Today, instead of words they were all emojis. And two of them didn't load, so you had to figure out two groups without knowing which was which. In a game where if you make four mistakes, it locks you out.

Expand full comment

Oh, that sounds fun!

Expand full comment

It's my wake-up game, and has been for a while now.

Expand full comment

It's part of my routine, also, too, but my order is a little idiosyncratic. Wordle, Spelling Bee, Tiles, Letter Boxed, Connections, Mini.

Expand full comment

I kind of enjoy that game, because of how they clearly try to put in words that are going to trip you up, but emoji thing is something I'm not even going to try.

Also, one the occasions I've been locked out, I hate that they don't just go ahead and show the connections sets.

Expand full comment

That's odd. When I crap out they show them to me.

With me they're just like, sorry! And here's how long until tomorrow's puzzle!

Also, when they tell me I'm off by one, sometimes I think they're lying.

Weird. I'm playing for free, so it's not like it's a perk for subscribers.

On the thankfully rare occasions that I find myself close to running out of chances, I just look up hints. Mashable has a nice layout where their first hints aren't even the correct names for the categories, just something relatively close to the categories, which is almost always enough to get me to see what I was missing.

Well, since you asked specifically which one is an actual "Christian" message, that would be the one that says this:

"๐‘€๐ด๐‘๐‘Œ ๐‘ƒ๐ธ๐‘‚๐‘ƒ๐ฟ๐ธ ๐‘‡๐ป๐ด๐‘‡ ๐ผ ๐ถ๐‘‚๐‘€๐‘ƒ๐ฟ๐ธ๐‘‡๐ธ๐ฟ๐‘Œ & ๐‘‡๐‘‚๐‘‡๐ด๐ฟ๐ฟ๐‘Œ ๐ท๐ธ๐‘†๐‘ƒ๐ผ๐‘†๐ธ"

That is "Christian" but not Christian because it violates one of what Jesus said were the two most important commandments: love God and love your neighbor. To see those principles in action, we turn to the other message that contains this:

"๐‘Š๐‘’ ๐‘๐‘Ÿ๐‘Ž๐‘ฆ ๐‘“๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ ๐‘œ๐‘›๐‘’ ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘œ๐‘กโ„Ž๐‘’๐‘Ÿ ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘... ๐‘ค๐‘’ ๐‘Ÿ๐‘’๐‘›๐‘’๐‘ค ๐‘œ๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ ๐‘๐‘œ๐‘š๐‘š๐‘–๐‘ก๐‘š๐‘’๐‘›๐‘ก ๐‘ก๐‘œ ๐‘ค๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ๐‘˜ ๐‘“๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ ๐‘๐‘’๐‘Ž๐‘๐‘’, ๐‘ ๐‘’๐‘๐‘ข๐‘Ÿ๐‘–๐‘ก๐‘ฆ, ๐‘Ž๐‘›๐‘‘ ๐‘‘๐‘–๐‘”๐‘›๐‘–๐‘ก๐‘ฆ ๐‘“๐‘œ๐‘Ÿ ๐‘Ž๐‘™๐‘™ ๐‘๐‘’๐‘œ๐‘๐‘™๐‘’."

Cruel and unusual punishment.

It exposes two significant issues in America:

1. The uncontrollable greed of the wealthy ... screwing poor families out of more money? which exposes the real problem, which presents the questions ...

2. Why does a jail need more funding? Why do we even *have* private prisons? Why do incarcerate so many citizens? Why wasn't this a problem during that "golden age" of America that so many people wish for?

Answer: Because our wealthy citizens and their companies PAID THEIR FAIR SHARE OF TAXES.
