'morning, STalkers. It's a short one today. 

Eff off to:

  • Cancer. It claimed another lovely soul. One of my stepbrothers lost his 12 year battle. We all thought he was winning that battle. The last 2 weeks were like a free-fall from an airplane and that shining light is gone.

 

Hug those dear to you and let them know you love them. Life is short.

OT - Woman Wednesday

Yes, men are welcome, too! 

I don't know how things are going for the rest of you, but this week is officially the sixth month I've been working from home. Ugh. The commute is GREAT! Other things? Not so much. Countless, overly long zooms; a single monitor when my workstation has two; no ability to print; working longer to compensate for connection lags... I've even been spending my commute time WORKING.

Happy Friday, STalkers! Sorry I'm late to the game, but it's been a helluva morning. Thanks to a system upgrade, my Zoom went kaput. I am not at all sorry about THAT because I could not participate in any onscreen activity. Boo hoo - NOT! Fingers crossed that it's the worst thing that happens today...
