What happened today that neither pissed you off nor made you happy but is nevertheless noteworthy?

Last marathon in the city. Luckily I read up on how I am fenced in so I am not waiting for gaps in the race to cross the street.
 
Saw an older couple with luggage at the main rail station try to get directions on how to leave. One of those cheery and loud station attendants guided them and then pointed in one direction, "You see my colleague over there? Walk to where she is and turn left and you will see an elevator that will take you up to the next floor. When you exit Front street will be behind you. Okay?"

The couple then slowly made their way and the woman muttered to the man, "See this is the sort of attitude that we need back home... "

Immigrant worker who can barely speak English getting by on less than 100 quid a day?
 
Yesterday I got a free pour of wine from a bartender girl and a wink. Today I was buying bombolini from another girl and instead of 8 I received 12 and a wink.

must be dry eye season. better start bringing some Systane bottles so that you can better accommodate these poor women.
 
My old uni mate messaged me last night to tell me that his partner/boyfriend/husband/whomever spotted me and my lady friend at the museum Halloween party last Friday.

I would have never been able to notice them as they were in costume. I was dressed as myself.
 
I am taking ‘Improv Theatre’ defensive driving while working from home today. It’s not hard to do both at all. I’ll also get a discount on insurance for taking the class. The comedy is pretty mediocre, but it makes it a little more bearable.
 
I was at a Portuguese restaurant for lunch today and overheard a couple catching up presumably for the first time since coronavirus. They are both city dwellers - sounded more midtown and east end to me.

One of them was talking about how she received her fourth coronavirus shot in July so this is her month to qualify for the new one. The other said he and his wife (not the woman at lunch) are quite done with the virus. Even before vaccines he was chafing to go back to the office but he wasn't classified as essential. He said they both had two and got BA1 at new year's and they are done. His wife believes getting the virus is the best form of immunity and was truly inspired when they went to Florida for vacation a year ago.

The other woman quickly moved past talk of vaccines and the virus.
 
God I wish we had a good Portuguese lunch option in the neighbourhood.
 
Wanted to start an OG Elon Musk/Twitter thread today as I don't see one.

Saw this at the bottom of one of the categories: You have insufficient privileges to post threads here.

Huh?
 

disney, continuing to raise prices and make the park experience ever shittier. unbelievable how much this shit costs now.


My senior trip in high school was an 11 day bus trip down to FL/Disney, with stops along the way.

That was the only time I have been and I don't ever see myself going back.

Not that I didn't have fun in HS, but spending a weekend at a Disney park isn't my thing.

I went to Disney World with my parents and brother when I was 12. After eating the hydroponic or greenhouse grown potatoes at Epcot Centre my mother and I got into an argument because I wanted to do something I don't even remember and she wanted to continue with the science tour.

It was a massive argument and I ended up just walking away trying to get lost in the rest of Disney World. After an hour or two I somehow bumped into them again and the rest of the Disney stay was stoic silence. No mouse, duck nor any woodland creatures came to comfort, console or try to save my relationship with mum.

This then continued until Cape Canaveral where some sense of normalcy returned except I then moaned about buying overly expensive astronaut ice cream and other food to try from the NASA souvenir store with money my parents didn't readily have. I was a little sh$t back then.

Since I started travelling for work I shared all of my miles, status, hotel points, lounge passes and upgrades whenever I could once my mother retired including the first trip to Vancouver and Whistler where my brother and I sat with the proletariat and I gave them my upgraded seats. I never apologised to her for that day.

I did go on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride and thought it was strange it turned into a movie. And I did the it's a small world because my mum did it with my grandmother way back when.
 
I got my flu shot. Another morning tomorrow where I am not lifting dumb bells.
 
Strongly urging masking indoors but no mandate.

I wonder what else I am strongly urged to do but there isn't a mandate.
 
sounds like a free day. you don't get paid per meeting so now you have a bunch of free time.

In addition to two being cancelled on Thursday and one on Monday.

I spent time figuring out my recipes for Christmas and this coming weekend.
 
The co-working space manager here is an older gent. He likes to say Merry Christmas and calls his student intern assistant "love".

Not senior citizen old - kids sound like they are in school age and he came from Marriott.
 
Weird and pointless disagreement with my MiL.

Are my kids:

50% American, 25% Australian and 25% Vietnamese (based on grandparents’ place of birth)

37.5% Australian, 12.5% Vietnamese, 50% American (based on grandparent’s passports)

75% Euro and 25% Asian (DNA ancestry)

Mostly Australian with some Vietnamese heritage because who the fuck would want to admit to being American when they have alternatives?

Little multicultural humans with passports.

Leave the kids be ffs. I’m sure they couldn’t care less.

What's wrong with that?
