@katbyter Careful, you risk upsetting all the secularists/humanists that inhabit this site. I’m sure they are looking for something to rail against now that trump is out of office, lest they get out of practice.
@katbyter@ybmuG “?”, maybe as in “why is this not on the list?”, since that distinguishes Sunday from the rest of the days of the week, more than any other of the choices listed. (And, yes, I am aware that some religions here emphasize Saturday observances instead of Sunday.)
@lawpugh Good game, but I’m guessing you were not happy with the outcome. (I didn’t have a dog in that fight.) I’ve been surprised throughout the playoffs as to how well TB has done – I had not paid much attention to them last few seasons and didn’t realize how good they had become – I guess all they needed was a quarterback with the right mindset to pull it all together.
Don’t despair; I’d say that TB vs GB would be the odds-on betting favorite for the NFC championship game next season.
Biggest surprise to me in the game was that the predicted snow didn’t materialize to become a factor.
I do 7on/7off, 8 hour days (2nd shift). 56 hrs a pay period plus 5.25 hrs to cover for holidays/vacation time. Been doing it for 25+ yrs and love it. If you want to work more there is generally time available, but you don’t have to if you don’t want to. We are pretty good about swapping days/shifts if you need a specific day off for a wedding or some such. If you really want to go all out you can make arrangements to be off your work week (at your expense) and then have 3 weeks to really go somewhere (like Europe or Asia)
Of course, that being said, what with COVID and all, I have been averaging 95+ hours but in only 8-9 days a pay period for the past few cycles due to co-workers out for C-19. OTOH I am taking 10 days off in a couple of weeks due to extra time accumulated for ‘years of service’ and being ‘employee of the yr’ for 2020.
the same as every other day, except it is a day off for my partner who as soon as work isn’t on the table turns into a nocturnal person. so he’ll be asleep all day.
today i’m gonna shower, bring in the trash bins, collect some packages, maybe get some bagels or donuts, and prepare some toppings for pizza later. (i’m thinking roasted garlic for a white sauce, caramelized onions, and later when i bake the thing, prosciutto.) otherwise, a crossword and my remaining jeopardy episodes.
@jerk_nugget omg! That looks so good. I need to attempt a “Grandma Pizza”! (Maybe also as a tribute to my 105 year old Italian Grandma who passed away last month!) !
Do you make the whole recipe or do you half it? I liked his “kids version” with all the cheese too. Yum
@moonhat condolences on the loss of your gramma! but wow, what a run - any of us should be so lucky to get anywhere near 105 🥰
i make a half batch since it’s only two of us, and even with that we get two nights of pigging out on pizza, or two regular dinners and a lunch. (i reheat in the oven at 350 for however long it takes to get crispy and cheesy again, maybe 15 minutes or so.)
@jerk_nugget I agree, she had a very good run.
And there’s just 2 of us also- I’m seriously considering making this. If you start it in a Sunday, which day then is it ready to make the pizza? I apologize for all the Q’s!
@moonhat no worries at all! i always write it out for myself because it does get confusing, for me anyway!
let’s say you mix up the dough tonight at 8pm. you’ll leave it out at room temp for 12 hours.
then, at 8am monday, you’ll gently stir the dough again and leave it for another 12 hours at room temp. so at 8pm monday night, you’ll move it to the fridge where it can stay undisturbed for 24-48 hours.
that means 8pm tuesday will be 24 hours, so i would make it for dinner wednesday night which would be somewhere around 44 hours depending on when you like to eat
remember to plan ahead that night since it will need to rest on the counter and you’ll need time for your oven to get nice and hot.
hope that helps, feel free to ask more Qs if you have any!
Sunday. The day my partner and I are both home, relax, cook a good meal for breakfast and dinner, drink, have sex, eat desert (not in that order) It’s a splurge day. (Not that I don’t indulge in my extracurricular activities in that order), Sunday’s were not under any pressure, it’s kinda like a holiday. And no we don’t have kids.
