I Want to be Underwhelmed, Again.
Please post the most mundane, insignificant details of your days.
Right now, I'm enjoying Damien: Omen II starring William Holden and Lee Grant.
I have deep respect for these two old pros, not phoning it in, giving their all in professionalism, talent, to this movie.

As some overhead lights were [italic]literally being turned off,[/italic] I was forced to scurry through the aisles to grab my product . . . all with warning announcements coming over the loudspeaker!
I sat in my car afterwards, shaken.

I’m a manager at a corporate hair salon that is hiring a trans person, she was late for the interview but I called her on it and despite my initial misgivings, go figure, I like her for the job! I had a bad experience previously with a very loud aggressive trans in the past that made my job a living hell, so this time around I outlined what the company and myself could and could NOT do for her. I live in Florida and there aren’t protections here- and II told her Tampa IS NOT NYC and not to expect so.
The previous trans would hit on straight guys but did it in a sneaky way (I’m just kidding!) and had several manipulative ways of getting around responsibilities- always had excuses and a full on meltdown about a previous job to distract from the issue at hand. She also realized we wouldn’t fire her because we were short staffed so she ignored warnings. She would say horrible things about my appearance, weight and age in front of other workers and disrupt meetings when she didn’t like what she was hearing. When I called her out the same way in front of the group, she’d walk out. She was genuinely a damaged person I thought I could help. I was always careful because I never wanted to appear transphobic YET she could always claim so if she didn’t like what I had to say...
This one is older, not passable in the least, and seems like she’ll work out. I’m keeping it real this time around.

I hadn't tuned into my mesothelioma/AARP channel in a while, but I woke up early this morning and couldn't get back to sleep, so I tuned in and watched an episode of "Father Knows Best." Was Betty/Princess on the verge of tears in every episode? She can be a little whelming early in the morning.

I'd never seen one just sitting on a branch before. I hope that's normal and doesn't mean hummingbirds in my area are stressed by lack of nectar.
