    Meanwhile:

    1. Changed spikes at a golf course and clean the restroom
    2. Sold ice cream at a Marble Slab Creamery (don't eat anywhere teenagers work)
    3. Sold shoes at a mall shoe store (don't buy shoes from a place teenagers work)
    4. Worked the cater side of a restaurant business (see 2)

    I did have a cool research assistant job at Duke. Worked out in one of the forests helping the PhD students collect data.

    I want to say it was called the Village Theater. It was an independent theater and it was in Highland Park in an older shopping center that I think was called the Highland Park Village Shopping Center. It was a cool place to work. It was haunted. Yeah, right, but I saw some unexplained stuff so I decided to just roll with the ghost story. We weren't teenagers, it was mostly college kids so the popcorn was safe.

    Just googled it and it's still there (although closed for now due to covid). They've made themselves over as theater that serves beer which was probably necessary. I had heard a rumor that it had ceased being a movie theater awhile back but it looks like those rumors were either wrong or somebody decided to reopen it as a movie theater.

    DUDE! Don't erase our posts that aren't actually doing anything wrong! Are you working for Yum Beer? I knew they felt threatened!

    I missed it entirely. Although I guess perhaps I started it? Apologies to the Deebers, I was just curious.

    Don't victim shame. On another note it is chilly in the Old North State this morning on my morning walk. It feels really good. Headed to watch the State High School 1A football championships in a bit. I am only obliquely interested, I have friends I grew up with who have children playing in the game. I'm ecstatic about eating at one of my favorite restaurants in Chapel Hill and seeing my first live sports since the pandemic hit. Plus I will get to feel smug because Kenan Stadium has a really problematic name.

    Nah. But apparently we discovered a structural flaw in the wanker filter. Itís a monstrosity but itís got a small opening for destruction. I donít want to brag but I nailed it. Then again, I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home so, you know, maybe Iíll just kiss my sister later.

    If you donít start your day strong, you might as well get back in bed.

    I'm one of those folks who hits the ground running. Pretty much 6 days a week within three minutes of my eyes opening I am doing a set of push-ups. The rest of my family does not suffer from this affliction.

    buying a standby (automatic start) generator is more complex than one might imagine.

    You'll delete this post, but ham is the best sandwich meat...but not even close to the best derivation of pork. The pig is a wonderous animal.

    14Kw...more than enough to keep everything going if we're gone for a week.. What the (very capable) generator guy does not dwell on is the issue of the required propane tank(s), which is VERY complicated, one must make many assumptions...and the smart solutions are not inexpensive.

    My morning...

    Sitting in car, protected from steady drizzle.

    Awaiting the start of my first live road-race since pre-pandemic.

    I would argue no. Deli meat on sandwich bread only. We are a country with a system of rules people.

    ...sort of figured. Makes your assertion more defensible.

    Wait. Are you a spectator or driver?
