spam call update

Over the past few days I’ve received spam calls with these caller ID labels:

— Sentara Hospital
— Cone Physician
— Emergency
— Community Funeral
— Elon University

It seems the telcos have no control over their networks. I don’t know what they’re being paid for.

This stuff is getting dangerous.

It’s bad if they detect elderly/dementia on the line. The call centers hand those off to specialists to work ’em.

It’s amusing to see call center employees complaining online about people being rude to them.

That US Summit of the Americas

The upcoming Summit of the Americas in Los Angeles.

Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Cuba are not being invited by the US.

As far as that summit, the moral of the story is, you don’t want to be a member of a club that would have you as a member.

wrist soviet

That’s a sexy AF wrist. Wanna lick it?

olive garden

Sometimes people ridicule Olive Garden, but I love ’em.

Not authentic? IDGAF.

Slightly exotic, slightly elegant, low price.

I lived off of their takeout all through lockdown summer when I was working away from home. World’s best service.


Things have gotten so veiny. WTF.

I guess I’m ready for vampire harvesting. 🧛‍♂️

lunar eclipse

Lunar eclipse from special vantage point.


Snack for the tomato obsessed.

pineapple corer

I like fresh pineapple but won’t cut one up with a knife due to fear of slipping and cutting myself.

I didn’t know such a tool as a pineapple corer existed until somebody at work told me. It arrived today. Now, I need a whole pineapple. 🍍

Made in China. Hell yeah!

stocking up on the necessities

We currently have slightly more than a gallon (4.25 liters) of amaretto over here.

We decided to lay in a supply in case there’s a shortage of this important “formula.”

cheezette burn

Cheez-It. I’ve had to stop eating them. Like that gas station (Speedway) coffee I had the other day, these turn my stomach into a flaming cauldron of acid. 🔥

Pretty soon I’m going to be down to matzo crackers and apple juice.
