    I’m starting this because sometimes you make a joke you think is funny and it’s just...crickets. It can’t possibly be the material, it must be the audience, right?

    Anyways, someone posted a vid on Facebook of giant tortoises mating. Very grunty and slow, because tortoises.

    I wrote “Des-pa-cito” and not one measly little laugh emoji.

    "Maybe what I need is a little hair of the dog." Pretzel bites. I was referring to Doordashing some pretzel bites for dinner.

    My family suggested a holiday schedule for next year that extends celebrations well into January and I was like ... no, that’s not going to work for me, I burn the tree down on Christmas night.

    Lit’rally everyone thought I was serious.

    Is this also where I share all my nihilist “jokes” that make people regret inviting me places?

    At a friend’s 30th birthday dinner, the guest of honor’s giant dinosaur balloon floated away and she said it seems significant and asked the table what it means.

    I said the balloon was gone, just like the whimsy and wonder of her childhood.

    Then later she asked when spiky baby ponytails stopped being an acceptable hairstyle and I said yesterday, that ship sailed with her 20s, along with her balloon and whimsy.

    Background: Mercer Island is a predominantly Jewish area on lake Washington. Rooster’s coworker isn’t Jewish but lives there because there’s an immersion French school there his kids attend.
    The school’s moving because the JCC was renting the property to them, but will stop because they don’t like how its “changing the character of the neighborhood”.

    Me: “So they don’t like the gentilefrication?”

    I was SO proud of that pun and rooster’s reaction was an indifferent “that’s not your best”.

    I would have LOL'ed SO hard at that, Fish.

    One of our infrastructure IT guys was looking at my computer to figure out why I couldn't get something downloaded and apparently my computer is hosted in a "more secure" domain since I transitioned from a manufacturing plant. He's going to move me to the IT domain so I can do more things myself but it will leave my home drive with everything on it in the other domain which will slow down access to it. I asked if he could move it and told him last time it was moved, they had to do it overnight due to the size. He gave me a weird look (like what have you been saving) and I said "it's so big because it's full of secrets." He did NOT get my reference and in reality, it's full of 10 years of everything I've done at work, it's overkill but I might need it some day.
