I Want to be Underwhelmed, Again.

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.

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 love The Birdcage. It's funny enough, esp when Nathan Lane is taught to be "manly", and not whelming at all - a rarity with movies today. Producers seem to rely on shock value way too much to keep their audiences awake these days.

I also love and often rewatch the fantastic gay-themed French comedies Pédale Douce and Le Placard. Wholeheartedly recommend for your enjoyment.

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. Anyway, during a commercial break, I saw that Molesting Boy Scouts had been added to the mix. The spot was more whelming than Betty Anderson. "They took your innocence! Don't let them take your chance at justice!"

[quote] Very strange.

I think, and notice, all animals- insects, humans, wildlife, what-have-you- are behaving strangely. It's subtle but detectable.

I live close to a river and for the first time ever this summer it overflowed its banks by many, many feet due to heavy rains at its source. I live in a climate that gets it all due to distinct four seasons, but still.

I think all animals are adjusting to climate change and that's what causing the "strange" behavior.

What’s “strange” about fruit flies in your house? Do you have pest control companies come to your house every month & drench everything with firehoses full of pesticides, therefore no insects could possibly exist!?

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. It hasn't rained anywhere near a normal amount this summer. Maybe it was a special mesquite tree hummingbird.

I thought the minimum was 70%, but whatevs.

Then I went to the local Grabbit-Quik and got a soda and a gallon of milk. $4.00 for the milk. That was almost whelming, but not as whelming as the thought of going all the way to Winco for milk at $1.83 for a gallon, so whatevs.
