Reblog this if:
- you inhale and exhale throughout the day
- sleep sometimes
- have a tumblr
I bet most people won’t even reblog this because it “won’t look good” on their blog but I think that’s pretty messed up. Everyone should reblog this and if you don’t I’m judging you.
Another ‘Stupid thing on my desktop’ - Garfield wind up that doesn’t really do anything now, spring is worn out and the feet the let him hop are broken. Seems appropriate. Next to my official ‘I Hate Mondays’ mug.
I think the FedEx guy is macking on one of our admin people. The awkwardness amuses me.
Normally they practice the full day before a show - up here the show is Fri-Sun so the Blues practice/give a media day Thursday. Besides, they are out of Fallon, NV so they will likely do most practice at home base…hopefully.
If memory serves correctly (it didn’t happen last year) they usually practice here the preceding weekend and week. I mean, if you could fly around the Bay Area in your fancy jet, wouldn’t you?
I live on the main runway approach to the airport all airshows are done at here. I’m used to a bit of jet noise from Gulfstreams and other corporate jets but mostly it is flight school trainers (Cessna 170s and Beech King Airs). Airshows suck though - I know some people can’t get enough of them but for me once you’ve seen a loop-de-loop or whifferdill what else is there? I’ve worked shows for my job and it was worse doing that. Plus the jet teams blaze by super low and rattle everything and scare the crap out of our cat and all the neighborhood pets - and set off all the car alarms (mostly the Blues since they are used to Carrier landings and have more chutzpah than any other teams).
So in summary, I understand the dislike. My neighborhood has a big block party but we always try to have ‘plans’ so we can miss the weekend.
Today in ‘stupid things on my desk’ - a vintage Tomy Pac-Man wind up.
Apartment Etiquette Handbook?
So my morning pondering - why don’t apartment complexes create an etiquette handbook for tenants when they lease? It would have things in it like ‘How to keep your garbage disposal from smelling like Satan’s sphincter!" and suggestions like ‘To help with noise, get some throw rugs for your bathrooms!’
Include things like stain removal guides and other cleaning tips. Yeah it might seem pretentious/presumptuous but seems like there is enough acquired tribal knowledge about surviving apartment life that this should be a normal thing. Or maybe it is elsewhere but I haven’t seen it in any of the cities I have lived in Texas and Oregon. And dog knows I’ve had enough neighbors over the years that were apparently totally clueless about apartment life and how not to be a complete douchecanoe to everyone.
