Seven Quick Takes Friday: Cheese and Cracker Jack Edition


1) Current mood:

2) As always:


This is your weekly reminder that #FacebookIsTrash.

3) Thought for the week: Sweet dreams are made of cheese. Who am I to dis a Brie?

4) One of our managers left. His last day was Monday. I don’t know how I feel about that; he was involved in the shitshow that became my job and it’s fricking stupidity, but he seemed decent enough. So I have mixed feelings on the matter. Of course, this could mean we’ll get another manager, which might be a wonderful thing or a terrible thing. It’s hard to say.

5) Apparently, Dr. Fauci went a bit outside during his ceremonial first pitch for the Washington Nationals. He did a fair sight better than I ever could, so I’m not going to say anything bad about it.

6) Baseball is back. The Brewers play their first game tonight. They’ll be in Chicago, at Wrigley Field and the only fans in attendance will be on the rooftops of some nearby buildings. There won’t be any crowd noise. Fox Sports will be adding in virtual fans in the bleachers. But I’ll be hearing Bob Uecker’s voice tonight as he calls the game and I can barely wait.

7) Pete’s Robo-Con is supposed to be this weekend, but it’s gone virtual. So no one has to attend. It’s safer that way, but I can’t help but miss the convention experience; I really hope we can get a vaccine for coronavirus ready by next year. If I have to take eight doses of the stuff, I won’t care. Just let me have BotCon. Let me be able to hug my friends again.

With that said, it’s time to wind this down. But I’ll be here next week, posting more weirdness. So until then, have a great weekend, stay safe, and I’ll see you soon!

About Silverwynde

I'm a Transformers fan, Pokémon player, Brewers fan and all-out general nerd. I rescue abandoned Golett, collect as many Bumblebee decoys and figures as I can find and I've attended every BotCon--official and non--since 1999. I'm also happily married to a fellow Transfan named Prime and we were both owned by a very intelligent half-Siamese cat, who crossed the Rainbow Bridge on June 16, 2018. We still miss him. But we're now the acting staff of a Maine Coon kitty named Lulu, who pretty much rules the house. Not that we're complaining about that.

    During BC ’15 in St, Charles, IL, I visited Chicago 1st and saw the Wrigley field area. I thought those apartments whose owners have bleachers overlooking Wrigley field are lucky bastards who can generate extra income due to their location. 🙂
