Re: Feeling Foolish WEDNESDAY@ the MSC

Hi there! I joke about living in the sticks, but the impact comes closer. I live close to 2 counties with restrictions. One county is so rural, it has 2 small villages and is the state's only county with no traffic light. I hear Washington state has a no fishing rule. That would be a problem for me...

Re: Feeling Foolish WEDNESDAY@ the MSC

Not really a robo call, but I did get a message, that referred to me by name, that they needed my updated credit
card info for automatic billing. It was from a chemical research company in Texas called Microconsult. WTF?
Other than that, life has been like being snowed in without the snow. :pirate:

Re: Need Sun MONDAY @ the MSC

Our county was just added to the governor's "stay at home" order.
Pretty much been doing that anyway. Schools will be closed until whenever.
The online site for kids to do their schoolwork crashed today.

Re: Friday Morning and Wishing I was @ the MSC

So.....I'm at work along with about 12 other people who are scattered among 2 secured floors. The courthouse has a "No one from the public is allowed entrance without proof of needing to be here" policy.

Everybody's Staying Home Sunday @ the MSC

Soooo.....if you've got nothing else to do, watch my oldest daughter tonight on America's Funniest Home Videos on ABC.
Her video involves a mishap with charcoal toothpaste. I didn't even know that product existed. :pirate:

Re: Superstitious FRIDAY @ the MSC

Yesterday I got a call from work's "Health and Well-Being Team" (frankly, I had no idea such a thing existed). The nice chap was asking about my recent overseas travel. Because we are a defence contractor, we are obliged to report overseas travel to the federal government. One of our security moron...
