We had comfort food for all then Mario Karted the new year in. I stopped playing after winning 5 rounds in a row, then my daughter took over and schooled people for the remainder.

This is a little whine and a big win rolled into one.

Aussie got a text from our bank asking if he made about 5 or 6 charges to his debit card. We haven't bought anything in 2019 so far. Call up the fraud center. Someone's been using our card in GA. It'll be a few days to have the charges reversed. Aussie got issued a new card.

How can that possibly be a win? The biggest charge the person/people made on his card was $17 at Starbucks. The rest were under $3. About $30 when all is said & done. Aussie's retirement pay was deposited early because of the holiday, too. So they could have had a good shopping spree if they wanted to. Fortunately our regular paychecks get deposited into another account so we don't even have to worry about having a hold that will prevent us from paying the rent. :)

I get back to work to find that one of my major projects has stalled in IT. I had a Jan 1 deadline and my part was finished at the beginning of December. Getting them to respond has been like pulling teeth.

So, of course, I sent a request for an update for this 1-hour IT job that has taken a month and told them I was past deadline and would thus be bothering them more. Today I cc: my boss so he would know what's going on (I already told him but this gives a record). Tomorrow I include HIS boss. Friday I will include the VP who requested the job be done.

My actual wording:

Other than that, the wording Bryan put is fine. I’m past deadline now so I’m going to push a little harder and bother you a little more. I apologize in advance.

So…any updates? :)
There was more before this quote but it is job specific and was redacted.

I got that it was Letterkenny because I Googled the original line, but I had no context within the show because - and I know this is an unpopular opinion - I think the show is fucking stupid and unwatchable.

You know what statement bugs me? "Batman wins because of plot". No crap, really? I thought I was reading a documentary. This statement means nothing. That's the whole point. The plot, and Wayne's character, are that he wins on the basis of his brains. Of course the plot relays that.

While browsing Netflix, I spot a thumbnail with an actress that looks rather familiar. I click into the film to see the name of the actress. It also sounds familiar, but I can't remember where I recognize it from. I google the name.

"... is an actress and former porn star..."

Ah, that explains it.
