  • Re: It's snowing!

    I wish it was snowing here  :'( :'( :'( :'(     I just hiked up to the restaurant and there is very little snow.  Not much on the horizon either.  It's so bad, my right foot microspike broke because of a lack of snow in some places.  

       We were to open this weekend, but not going to happen.    Yet another week without work.  My poor bank account is looking sad.   

    The uphill race on Saturday will be interesting.   While there is some snow over there, it's not the best.    I have to by another set of microspikes for the race too.    Ugh.

    On a positive note, apparently I've been promoted to manager.   Last year I was co-managing with 2 others.  (I use that term loosely, we are more supervisors).  

    One guy (who had 1 year more experience than me) isn't coming back.  The other guy (who has been here for 37 years) isn't coming back until the first of the year.    Plus he leaves before the end of the season. 

    At the company wide meeting they introduced only me as a manager. I just figured it was because  the 37-year vet wasn't there.     I meet my team, seems like a great group. No princesses or criminals/excessive drug users like last year.      Then I read the phone list and noticed I was listed as the manager and 2 others (both new) are assistant mgrs.     Well okay.   I did get a nice raise for this season and looking at the schedule I'm getting more hours than last year also.     

    Now if it would fucking snow so I can actually start making money.  At this rate my season-to-date pay will end up the same as last year.

  • Re: Are you ready for some football?!

    Oh, sorry!  My usual newbie self.  I didn't realize league playoffs were different from the actual playoffs.

    It has to work that way since not all NFL teams makes it into the playoff.  Which in turn means a lot of your players wouldn't be playing either and leaving everyone with half-filled teams.

    But it's all good.  The first year DH played I was confused myself.

    This week I play DH in the first round of playoffs.   We are 1-1 in regular season.  It's going to be an interesting weekend for us.

    @sparklepants41 I totally would have traded a win by the Bills for a win in fantasy. 

    Also, Gronk is a jerk. Hope he's suspended for that hit. (And I liked him before, he's from Buffalo). 
    I have Gronk on both leagues and I was happy to see he was suspended.  I heard he's going to appeal.   That's BS.  What he did was flat out wrong.    I get his frustration, but that is no excuse to do a WWE move and hurt the guy.

    I would think more highly of him if he took is punishment.  Especially since that is not really his MO.

    Eagles can clinch the NFC east if the Cowboys lose tonight.

    I equate it to every murder still has a mother.    Meaning, everyone has different relationships with people.  

    Matt might have been appropriate with them, so they would look at him in a different light than someone who he abused.     People are often in denial about things even when hearing rumors.  

    Plus they only told the staff minutes before going on the air.   Which I think was BS.   They had zero time to process anything.   I personally think being sad and heartbroken is a normal first reaction when you find out someone close to you did something horrible.  It's part of the process.  The fact they had to be on live TV moments after finding out means they had to show those emotions to the world.    Had they found out the night before I think we would have seen different emotions.

    Another question I have is who was this nurse someone was taken to by Matt's assistant?    Aren't nurses mandatory reporters on abuse?  I can see how sex toys might not raise major flags, but a woman having to be taken to a nurse by an assistant?  WTF???
    The NY Times is reporting that Savannah and Hoda learned at 4am, the rest of the staff learned at 6:49 am.  

    However, I do agree with the rest of your statement.  As the sibling of an addict, I often have to grapple with the fact that the person I knew to be kind and funny and loving has also done some awful things that hurt people.  Myself included.

    At the same time, Kathy Lee's whole I still love him and texted him to say so and I pray the Lord will help him find his way made me sick.  Sure you can love someone who does awful things, but I don't think that would be my first reaction after learning something like this.  Talk about enabling!

    I missed the nurse story...what happened there?
    KLG is well, KLG.   Her response is exactly what I would expect from her based on her history.

    There is a report that Matt sex a married staffer in his office to the point where she passed out and had to be taken to a nurse by his assistant.    WTF?
