I thanked the administrators for a 40k Facebook group that I follow, for putting their foot down on people who are trying to get people to "gatekeep harder" and will be booting the worst offenders out soon.

 

Do I dare ask what this means?

Have you thanked anyone today?

 

 

 

Yes. My hardworking co-worker who actually gets things done, my boss for letting me go home early and have next week off, our Sysco driver for putting up with us, and the nice lady who brought me food at Sonic.

Yes, not to long ago, actually. I thanked a coworker for the help he gave me.

My wife for making dinner (I usually do it), picking up the car at the garage and dealing with 1000 other things around the house since I  am no longer allowed to leave my work computer for 12+ hours a day... 

Also, several reasonable clients who are being patient as we try to sort things out for them without our usual tools and set-up and colleagues who are helping sort all this out. 

And the kind Home Depot employee who brought me my online order to my car, despite failing at the whole social distancing part of the equation. 

I was also thanks several times today, which helps a little bit when it feels like work is going to swallow you whole.

Yes, the neighbour who sold me the eggs so we could make these Cheese and Chutney Scotch Eggs;

There were half a dozen, but temptation struck before I got the camera out.

Michael Proctor for painting my Bones 5 goroloth.  He's doing such an amazing job; it's exciting.

Its early here (apparently I didn't make it here on the actual 12th) but yes, my wife.

And also Tootsie the cat when she stopped clawing at my wife's desk chair after I asked her to stop.  And Peeps (the cat) when he got out of my way after I asked him to while I was carrying some bags to the storage room.

Alex (the cat) got a "Good girl" when she asked to go into the dining room for a morning snack instead of eating the other cats' dry food (she has special gastro dry food as she is old and prone to not being able to keep the regular stuff down).

The other two cats hadn't moved from their chairs last I saw, so they will get their positive interactions later....

 

Yes, I spend a lot of time talking to cats these days......

 

And an hour and a half into work and I haven't had to interact with any co-workers....could be a good day ::D:

What is the largest wild (not captive) animal you have ever seen in person?

That looks tasty. Could you share the recipe?
