    They changed her time to an hour after I said something, but come on folks. Basic shit here"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
    Whoa, first off, that's amazing (scoring Terry), and second, WTF?

    Simple solution: make the flat fixing demo 45 minutes and give GT the hour she asked for?

    TINSHIFA: In other things people on boards do that don't make that much sense, the former chair of the school board submitted a melodramatic letter yesterday saying she won't be taking the oath of office (in the four way race she came in first, beating me by one vote). Basically that we suck now that people who share her perspective aren't in the majority. The funny thing is, sure, we seized power, but I was all set to accept her continuing on in the one role she probably really wanted (being one of two people from our board on the transitional board that will lay the groundwork for merger) in the interest of not having this all be super partisan and moving things along.

    But no, she decided to up and quit instead. The thing I like least was in doing so she dissed our newly elected chair (they were pretty close in the past), going so far as to list off people she was honored to serve with (what I call her "Pantheon of Stooges") and leaving the new chair off the list. I mean, sure, I knew she hates me and wasn't going to list me as someone she had enjoyed serving with, but dissing the other lady really was uncalled for. What really makes me nuts is that she mentioned how she'd been board chair since 2013 - fucking five years with the same a-hole in power? We're supposed to be trustees, and we have one person in a close relationship with the principal. The optics of that are really problematic (keep in mind, the town government was similarly run by a small group of people, including former chairs husband, and on their watch dog license checks didn't get deposited for years, and the IRS wasn't getting paid payroll taxes).
    holy cow. may the bridges she burns light her way?DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    yikes, what a baby lol

    at least maybe you won't have to deal with that bullshit now that they quit?"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries
    Hopefully it'll make things a good deal more pleasant.

    Downside is I'm getting the sense she did a lot of the work herself, so I'm likely going to have to do a lot more (more meetings).
    So, I was going to be all "Hey, I got the Team Slow Bike jersey in a photo in a local paper!" but then I read the article.


    These are the risks a person takes when they quickly dash off responses to a local reporter's questions and let them have at it. Maybe I shouldn't have emphasized trivia so much?

    My feeling is reporters always get one thing wildly wrong. He totally ignored the part where I said I was riding the 32 miler at the suggestion of a fellow dad I'm riding it with. If it were just me I'd sign up for the 62 miler, get lost at some point, then bonk, and spend the rest of the ride feeling like an idiot for not doing the 32 miler and having a nice time. With the 32 I'll finish, have a bite, feel good, then wonder why I didn't do the 62. The 32 is clearly the smarter choice, but I've never let that stop me before.,574738
    hahaha, TSB! Yeah he really latched on to the trivia.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D
    I should've leaned into it a bit more I guess, they said they were running a story about three people riding in this year's Tour de Heifer so I figured I'd just be in among others and maybe they'd say I was on the school board. I didn't know I was getting my own little thing that they'd put... effort... into? I haven't seen it but my wife's friend has the actual paper and says its a big photo.

    I hate pie. That's another thing they got wrong. But I appreciate their attempt to continue the Trivial Pursuit jokes.
    wait what the fuck?! get off my lawn, pie rules.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    More specifically, pie crust is disgusting, IMHO.

    I approve of a handful of pie fillings.

    I'm more of a cake person myself.

    Double wut?! Pie crust is one of humankind's greatest creations!Worstcase I'll just zip tie on a seat... but i'd rather not. —Zev (who else)

    pie crust is often my favorite part of the pie! (cake is also generally fantastic though)That may be my favorite DQ of all time - nerdo
    haha maybe you have just had only shitty pie crusts? Like I wonder how many kids think they don't like apples because at school they only get shitty red delicious.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D

    Good ones exist somewhere, but they’re really hard to come by.

    I've seen some wrong opinions in my time, but imagine just announcing on the internet you don't like pie lmao

    in related news I had a cherry pie flavored vegan donut today and it was excellent (not union sq quality, but about as good as you can get out here)"life is hard, cats are soft." - surprisefries

    y'know a long time ago Tim did give me permission to edit any of his posts, so...i *could* fix this.DFL and DTF :D:D:D:D
    I cannot be silenced, even with pie!!!

    I mean, I guess I could be silenced. Even with a pie. But that would be unpleasant.
