I'd be a terrible elf.
I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas/holiday/day off. We did our usual Feast of the Seven Fishes on Christmas eve where I made a paella with seven fishes in it, except it was four this year because shit happens. No one really cared. I like making a big paella so there's leftovers and I don't need to spend Christmas cooking.
Penzy's because I like their spices, and their politics. I know they lost a lot of business this year for taking a stand against all this nonsense, and we try to buy what we can from them in support. Speaking of which...

As I predicted, I was sitting in front of the High School waiting to pick up Danny when the first sirens started blowing. That was scary, and even more concerning because there were children that were on foot and had already left school. They should have cancelled school-all the other districts did and businesses were letting people go home early ahead of the storm. They were lucky nothing happened, but that sort of gambling and brinksmanship whether it is with weather, student safety, or covid seems to be a hallmark of this superintendent's style and I don't like it. That sort of thinking that you're stronger than covid is about as effective as thinking you're stronger than a tornado. Yeah, the odds are in your favour nothing will happen but do you really want to endanger a school to make a political point or look like a tough guy? I am answering my own question because that's exactly what's happening. They wonder why all the young people are moving out of state-look at the sort of leadership we have. I can't blame a young person wanting out of Nebraska. Anyway, no one got killed so I guess there's nothing to see here, move along now...
