I am starting early. I am so spent. I am just so sick of managing people because I hate being lied to. I hate it. I am still, after all these years, shocked by how much people lie. I am done with this year workwise (outside of work it was a good year). I am drinking cheap wine and ordering a pizza.
The short answer is #2, because they’re groomed to think like that by the Ted Cruzes and Don McGahnns who came before them.
It’s that time of the week again! We here at FFF have been enjoying seeing all the new Fur Faces as well as the old familiar ones. Last week was a perfect mixture.
OH my god this week is over! Onto more last minute Christmas shopping! There has been a slow, steady stream of chocolates, cupcakes and other sugary snacks brought in by mostly me to my desk this week and they have ALL been devoured.
I finished grading today, guys! I’m officially on winter break! How are y’all?
My best friend is a liberal late-20s white dude. Bernie supporter, Bill Maher watcher/worshipper, “legalize weed,” ski bum, “separate the art from the artist” re: sexual assault allegations, has led a fairly sheltered life but seems to try to better himself. I do too much emotional labor for him. Today he posted an…
PSA #1 Its the Holidays and one gift you may get is a card or many cards with money or gift cards/certificates inside. Do NOT say “well I will leave the gift in the card and take it out later”. Nope. No, No. You do NOT do this? Why? You will forget and after the holidays you will push the cards into the trash barrel…
Happy Hanukkah Thursday to all of you! Did you know that this year, Hanukkah goes from Tuesday evening, December 12th to Wednesday evening, December 20th. So this week, I give you a crossword in keeping with the Hanukkah holiday. :) So welcome to our Cross Thread which we share across our friend’s and neighbor’s…
MRI results came in for Buster. They did find a bulging disc, but the doctor said it’s so tiny that they wouldn’t generally do surgery because most dogs wouldn’t even feel it.
That was brave of the Globe. Perhaps at some point the papers of record of New York, Washington DC, Miami, Chicago, Minneapolis, Austin, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle will follow suit.
I’m not sure any of us who are WOC really expected him to be all that different from anyone else in the rest of the world. There wouldn’t have been skits like this
Merry Christmas! Thanks Santa!!!
A good news story for a change, and I love how happy the organizer is
Politico has a long and winding article about Paul Ryan possibly wanting to quit Congress. The article doesn’t really come to a definitive conclusion, though, because if Ryan were to announce that he won’t seek re-election, he will be significantly less powerful in the House.
There’s a lottery in one of the states where I work. I don’t buy tickets because I’m cheap, but occasionally imagine what it would be like to win one. Inspired by their new mega jackpot, and also by the Clooney gifts to his friends ...
Hey GT- is 6 bottles of champagne and 2 cases (48 total cans) of beer enough for a party of roughly 30? I don’t want to do liquor since it starts at 11am. I was considering getting a big bottle of red wine too. The food served will be barbecue. I also told people to BYOB, but that I would be providing some drinks. Non…
I’m not a super-fan when it comes to Christmas. Shopping annoys me (every year, the list gets whittled down more and more), I hate wrapping, the tree is fine but it’s annoying to get it up and down, and I do the bare minimum when it comes to decorating. The one thing I go balls to the wall on: COOKIES.
