I don't want to see another pie for a whole year...groan. I ate a whole one myself, baked 9 little pot pies for an international fundraiser and made a cherry pie. I still love pies, but I don't want to have anything to do with them for a while. If the little pies aren't all gone tomorrow, they will have to go in the freezer at work. 

Which prompts the mashup:

Beware the pies of March.

You just need to have the right attitude.  Think of it as filling out a character sheet.  Just like when I had to do data entry so I pretended it was a text-based vidya game.  I like to imagine the entry about being eaten by grue still gets migrated because nobody who knows what it is has seen it yet.  

I was wearing my "Grue Repellent" t-shirt yesterday...

So my son got to his first real Naval Duty station on Saturday. He's stationed on a submarine out of Bangor WA.   He's a CSSSR (Culinary Specialist, Submarine, Seaman Recruit, for those that don't know) and has been telling me about his barracks "room".  His room is basically a 2 bedroom apartment that he has to share with a member of the submarine's other crew, whom are currently out on patrol right now. 

So this kid, as an E1 with less than a year in has been assigned nicer quarters than I had, even as an E6, and he only has to share it with his roommate in the brief overlap between crew swap outs. 

I don't know if it has always been this way for submariners, or if I just served way too long ago. 

I received an abrupt awareness of the difference in accommodations between services when I had to spend an overnight in Transient Junior Petty Officers/ Junior Sergeants Quarters at Clark Air Base in the Philippines.  The quarters I was assigned as an overnight transient were as good or better than a junior officer in the Navy would expect as Permanent Billeting Ashore.  This was in the mid 70s, when NAS Millington, where I went to Class A and B Schools had finally ceased using WWII tarpaper and clapboard barracks and built enough cinderblock barracks to house all the student sailors.

Yup, after about three days it gets shortened to "move it cat"  For some reason, they still all seem to love me. 

Because you have the manual dexterity and opposable thumbs required to operate a can opener.

We just got back from a Dropkick Murphys concert - despite ear plugs, my ears are ringing.

 

I have to say, I liked one of the supporting bands as much as the Murphys - the Rumjacks, an Australian band - https://youtu.be/tDTQQWSmo8s

So my wife & I  voted in our union's latest contract period last night, more or less we (ontario) is voting to join idaho's union, since we are in a different state but the same division of the company. Pretty sure it'll pass as we've done this before, only that was to get this vote on the table.

 

Looking at the current & future pay rates & it appears that I'm getting less then what I should be getting due to I'm night crew but also a supervisor. I'll talk with the bosses in the morning about it, as I've been freight boss for well over 20 years, so who knows when that pay increased kicked in for my spot. Can you say back pay? ::D:

Last night we watched Ghostbusters: Afterlife. I really liked it. Hubby liked it. I think Sephy liked it, except that it also scared her.

 

It scared her enough that she had a strong nightmare last night. She came to my bed crying and all sweaty. 
 

At some point she learned to be afraid of the dark and spooky monsters in movies ☹️

The US may finally be doing away with daylight saving time!

 

The Senate has passed legislation to make DST permanent, it is going to the house of representatives now.

 

Fingers crossed,  we may be done with the clock changing nonsense soon.
