    It's that time again.

    How's everyone doing? I'm concerned.

    If you're gonna make it, answer "I'm okay." If not...

      Is that a complaint or a mission statement? I'm never too worried about you, Spiff, thankfully.

        By the way, just cause you aren't making money doesn't mean you're not working. I am always vigilant.

        Not good. I don't know if I told you but I blew my knee out on the boat in June so I've been sitting at home waiting for a new knee. After jumping through all the crap and telling them over and over don't worry you will get paid. It's not going through L and I (labor and industry) all you have to do is call this number and Bob will tell you he's covered. So my surgery is scheduled for Sept 3, well was scheduled. Today I got the call they are canceling all non essential surgery. Covid has fucked me.

          I get paid tell the end of the season but it more now being ready to go back to work in the spring. Everyone gets laid off in the fall and rehired in the spring, but my boss doesn't have to hire me.
          I do love the idea of being able to walk without pain and being on my feet is a huge part of my job.

            I mean, you'll get unemployment, right? You sound dedicated to your job -- if only employers were EVER dedicated to their staff.

            neonspectraltoast I'm a commercial fisherman in Alaska, which makes unemployment tricky because my boss doesn't pay into it for many reasons. His insurance covers me completely while I'm working for him. And he does care about me but if my body can't do the job I won't get hired to do the job.

            It may be a fantastic time to explore other latent interests. Maybe it's the universe telling you to explore.

            I think the universe doesn't take kindly to when people insult themselves by becoming convinced they're only capable of one thing.

              Interesting thought. The universe wants us to play, not work.

            I could use some more sleep. Otherwise ok.

              I got in a wreck this morning and I'm a bit shaken up, but I'm okay

              Hurt my feelings really because it was my first wreck ever and I was hoping to continue the streak of not wrecking indefinitely

              It wasn't my fault though, i was rear ended by an old lady in a nightgown. I guess she wasn't planning on getting out of the car this morning, but you gotta pay better attention when you're just driving around in your nightgown

              I bruised my knee kickboxing on Tuesday and had to cancel my plans last night. I’m going to need to skip exercise today and just RICE if another day. I could go swimming, but it’s raining.

              Way less serious than JoeKing’s knee problems, so I probably shouldn’t complain. JoeKing good luck getting into surgery soon. Hope you feel better soon.

                I never understand why people think rain prohibits swimming. Isn't the main problem with rain that you get wet?

                    It’s definitely not a prohibition, I still do it sometimes. Just less refreshing when you get out.
