    I learned so much from Twitter today, and there will be no rest for me until you've learned it too.

    I once went to a client in Italy to propose an internet marketing strategy. A wine producer, must be ten years ago already.
    I laid out our plans about what he should do with their websites and their Facebook pages. When I was done, he said: "What about Twitter?"

    My reply was: "What about Twitter?"

    That's still my attitude today.

    International travel? Gosh, I just want to go on our annual trip to Hershey Park. Eat some less than spectacular chocolate and drip sweat all over strangers while we mash into queue lines together so we can try and hold that chocolate down while we spin around in little cars at fast paces.

    Yesterday I got to escape from 2020 for at least a couple of hours, eventhough the reason for the escape is that all public historical events are cancelled for the summer. Some friends of mine though has set up their own viking camp and I went there and did a day of cooking viking age food. Few things are as relaxing as just watching the fire and the food on the fire, knowing that you can't rush it. It took us 3 hours to cook a steak, but it was worth it in the end.

    very interesting, @Obi Anne -- what were some of the other items on the "menu" besides steak?

    I don't get it. Why wait three hours to cook a steak when you can raid Mercia?

    It reminds me of this recent horror movie about a Swedish tribe living on a large green flat land, and making strange rituals.
    Have you watched it? It's called Midsommar

    We are in the middle of Sweden so we would prefer raiding Russia than Mercia, more exciting stuff to the east.
    The rest of the menu was flatbread (from coarse rye flour and buttermilk), turnips cooked in the embers and nettle soup (I had raided my mother's garden for nettles before going up).

    And as for Midsommar - well, I don't like horror movies, but I'm definitely intrigued, especially since I live in the region that is the heart of traditional midsummer celebrations. Seriously it seems as one of the heated debates right now in the area is how you are supposed to get this year's maypoles up when we aren't allowed to gather people. Of course pandemics are serious, but not as serious as as not replacing last year's maypole. (I'm only partly joking)

    You can just PM me yourself! Assume that I've just sent you a PM asking "Hello! How can I help you?"

    Don't worry, your PM won't be the weirdest I get. Probably not even close.

    It's a very unsettling movie, so you might not like it if it's not your genre, but perhaps you might want to look at some pictures of the scenes because both the landscape and the clothes are quite close to the ones of your photo.

    Besties, my boss told me today that our reviews will happen whenever we're back in the office (probably in July), and that as for getting a raise backdated to the beginning of my year in February, "We'll know about that soon". [face_worried]

    I swear, if I get no raise after doing 1/3 of another person's job the last 6 months, I might lose it.

    With the unemployment rate over 20%, I worry that we may not have the upper hand on demanding a pay increase.

    If history is any guide, Americans during the Great Depression were just happy to have a steady job and enough food to avoid starvation. They had to endure enormous scarcity and many of them retained very frugal habits for the rest of their lives.
    Naturally it is still possible that a V-shaped recovery might allow us to avoid the same kind of economic pain that our ancestors endured in the Great Depression

    Noo the fridge has started again making the crazy noise.
    It's like a little trumpet, and I don't know how to fix it.
    There's no way to sleep now....

    The "steady" thing is no longer required. This is called progress.

    Yes, outsourcing is a much bigger problem than it was in the 1930s, and, also, coal still isn't coming back. :(
