Seriously… grilled kimchi! Nom.
Summer is here in San Diego and well, I wasn’t ready for it. We’ve gotten the backyard kind of summer ready with an above ground pool, patio furniture, rainbow lights and as alway, there’s a little blond Potato cairn terrorist more than happy to roll around in the sun.
I’ve returned to working the day job in the building today and it’s rather surreal. I don’t think I can even type on this keyboard anymore. I’m so used to my laptop. 😀 We’re all still distancing and wearing masks when leaving our offices but the majority of us are in place for a few days a week. It’s all rather strange.
If you haven’t noticed, I’m a big Marvel fan… well mostly the secondary characters like Bucky and Loki so I’m very excited about the Loki series. Watched the first one and man, I’m ready for the rest of it. CANNOT WAIT>
And I want to share this link abou the Top 10 Amazing “Secret” History notes about some famous places. These kinds of things are like a rabbit hole for me. I get started on one link and then… I’m falling in. This one is not exception:
And I also wanna leave you with three of the best Burger Masters there are… most notably…. a hack for the In-N-Out Burger, which is my fave burger of all time.
Oh yeah and some others.
I’m going to try to stop in more and chat. Just to keep things going and well, fire up my brains and the words / characters I’ve got brewing. Very exciting.
Please be aware of the changes to the Cabin when preparing for your next visit. There is now a fairly substantial bathroom tax that must be rendered appropriately for the duration of at least one minute following passing through the threshold.
If the tax collector is accepting payments at the time of your visit, you will be notified by the continuing undulating siren followed by an aggressive weaving motion towards you. It is recommended that all sojourns to the facilities include enough time allowance for this payment.
Payment can include the retrieval of the tax collector from the floor followed by a cradling and scritching of the collector’s head. Floor-based ear scritching is accepted but the full payment is preferred. Tail base scritching is also acceptable payment but must be accompanied by chin rubs in order to fulfill financial obligations.
Payments should continue until tax collector renders a full payment has been submitted. The payee will mark the end of payment by the subtle application of the tax collector’s double punch fang marks on their hand. Please be advised, at times the collector may return for further payment after first installment has been rendered if said collector is not satisfied once departing the facility. Should this occur following the closing of the facility door, it is recommended the user remove any appendages (including feet) from the bottom of the door as further collection may occur while occupied.
By posting this notice, Cabin Management is not responsible for any injuries inflicted to user of facilities by any third-party vendor used to collect and receive appropriate payment for facility use.
Today’s BORKING REPORT!
It’s an overcast day over here in Potato Land. About 65ºF (18ºC) but it doesn’t look like it’s going to rain. I see a hint of blue skies off in the distance but it’s a grey blue so there’s still a sheen of clouds over the hills. The rain would have been nice BUT we all know how much the Potato likes to roll around in wet grass and come back stained green and with leaves stuck to him.
I’d like to NOT give him a bath today.
There’s apparently a lot of workers out today. There IS some major construction and reno being done on a lot of houses in the neighbourhood and the one thing his Auntie Jessica has been firm about is people coming up to the Potato to pet him “because he’s cute”.
BUT as we all know, when outside on a Bork, the Blond Potato is there for business. There is no stopping to talk to people. No shenanigans other than finding a wet lawn and borking at people to wear masks, stay 6 feet apart, and most of all, get off the damned roof before you kill yourself (even if you ARE a roofer). He’s also disgruntled about lawn guys with dangerous machines like chain saws and mowers. He’s quite quick to judge their safety standards like some outraged OSHA supervisor.
He came home tired and happy, having scolded the world back into order… then promptly went scuba diving into his copper bowl, shook off a waterfall of drops onto the carpet, me, and his Auntie Jessica (and a bit on Badger) then proceeded to cavort and wiggle about. Now he’s taking a bit of a rest but is contemplating eating the small amount of kibble he left behind for his breakfast. Kibble eating is a very intense stalking and must be approached thoughtful and with great reflection. One does not simply shove one’s head into the food dish. It is food, after all…and not water.
From his Auntie Jessica:
Gus did a lot of borking at all the workers out this morning! He got very tired after that walk! I hope he’s getting plenty of water and rest now.
