thank you!!

it kind of was. the longer story is that i had started coloring in black with charcoal and red by hand just to see and make things pop. The longest story is that I think I will prefer to color these in digitally if/when I do so.

It's so hard to have these big pages that are complete and, well, pretty good -- certainly I enjoy looking at them -- in black ink and to contemplate all the potential missteps that coloring could wreak on them!

I don't know that I will redraw the whole thing digitally, though if i don't, it will create complications with digital coloring. I knew if I waited until I had this colored to share it, it would probably be another year! :)

Shalane did pretty ok! Negative splits. I think she's probably feeling good for someone with 5 more of those things ahead of her...

Didn't he end up going out too fast and bombed? Saw a tweet about it (I'm on the running tweeter now folx) OK -- placed third. I don't call that a bomb at all, esp for a 39 yo

Hmm. Let me ask my brother and his wife, who actually work at Trader Joe’s, how many people they are seeing unmasked.

It’s likely to be at least a somewhat-more anecdotally-useful perspective, considering yours is that of a consumer who only goes to TJ’s sometimes and only gets to see a sliver of what the experience is actually like, as determined by time and place of visit, etc, etc.

Oh look — per their anecdotal reports which, despite being anecdotal, are more likely to be accurate than your own anecdata due to simply more time spent at the store and having a more extended perspective than that of a consumer looking to spend more than 15 minutes in a grocery — Signage about mask requirements has been 100% taken down as ordered by corporate

And their reports of maskless consumers are up around 5x. Btw, they live in the PNW just like you. It’s a different state, sure, but what else is really different?

Maybe you just must’ve missed it? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

You cannot take your outside experience as a consumer who is inside a grocery store for a minimal amount of time to be a true accounting of the difference this CDC announcement has made for the average grocery or retail worker. Full, fucking, stop.

It’s real cool that you didn’t observe a change in behavior when you went out and visually observed the situation for a coupla minutes.

It’s way different 24/7. Shut up about it

Seriously, no shares on the post for all of your, any of this discussion? For shame on all of you

Today I told my boss that if my department was going full time remote I needed to know what teams at (my place of employment) were going back to the office, because I needed to know what opportunities there would be for me before I decided to leave the company. That was in an email.

Within an hour she was pinging me telling me the unofficial news of what my department plans to do and assuring me it wouldn't be full time remote. and yadda, yadda

I mean, like, I was serious. I don't think she wants to lose me. But what I know for sure is I need to be HEARD AS HELL if management is even considering this decision. It's one thing if management makes a bad decision it's another thing if they make it under advisement from people who think it's a decision that sucks.

That stinks for your team. I think it's entirely reasonable for you to feel bad about possibly leaving your job and especially leaving your boss in a hard spot. Sometimes people get handed a shit stick, and it sucks. It sounds like you tried to raise a flag on the play a few times. And it sounds like there were a few other flags that maybe your manager could've twigged to -- the overtime, the time off. We actually have a whole training for managers that they have to take every year about recognizing exhaustion.

It's going to be a FUN KIND OF STRESS when you move for sure!! It won't even be stress. It's going to be hella exciting! When I picked up and moved multiple states to somewhere in quarantine where I couldn't even try to get to know anyone, I really thought there was going to be a lot more crying in my apartment alone...at night or in the rain or something....like maybe weekly...about how sad and alone i was....I thought there would be good times but i thought there would be a lot of that first also.

Turns out no. There ain't been NONE OF THAT ABOVE BOOOLLL shit. Life is scary. Risk it! It's going to pay out so much for you in the end. The next great adventure -- i'll drink to that.
