I started watching this season of The Amazing Race (no spoilers, please). Was I ever surprised to see former NY Jets head coach Rex Ryan as one of the contestants.

I solved today’s Wordle in four attempts; my starter today was DETOX

Tuesday Tale of the Tape: 192.8 pounds (this is my new starting weight for comparison); this is actually much worse than I anticipated.

  1. Welcome to the month during which you will receive multiple “Black Friday Deals” emails every day.

    Bummer about the weight gain. I’m in the same boat.

    Wordle in 4 starting with STERN.

    I handed out candy for 2 hours. I was criticized by my wife for not getting more. I said that was $75 worth of candy. 2 hours is about my threshold for being a candy dispenser anyway. The grocery store is insane these days. $7.50 for a jar of mayonnaise. $7.50 seems to he the price for a lot of things these days.

    • I think two hours is respectable.

      The prices of things are certainly increasing. According to TV it’s all thanks to those DC Dems. *severe eye roll* The rising costs of things and my inability to reduce my expenses is why I am going to try to get employed again next year.

    • Barb says:

      My brother up in WI said they had over 1400 kids. They spent (he thinks) over $300 on candy. That is insane! They said non stop for over 3 hours.

      I started watching the new season of Big Sky & kept all the lights on in the front of the house off – Reba McEntire is sort of the villian this season. Her over the top country accent just makes me laugh.

    • Jenka says:

      No, you were exactly right. $75 and two hours is PLENTY. There is no need to waste your entire evening. Grant Park is such a competition. My friends on Grant use a clicker to count and they were at over 1700 people by like 7:00 pm. No thank you.

      • David says:

        Thank you, Jenka. The trick-or-treaters definitely bus into my street. Which is fine. I’m perfectly content with the balance that I’ve struck. I have no interest in using a clicker, I do plenty of stuff with data in my day job.

        Going on my street is kind of a rookie mistake, because there are much better streets, such as Grant. There’s only houses on one side of my street, and lots of steps.

  3. Jenka says:

    Wow, Paulie, we are the same! We just started TAR last night, too. Kevin made a lot of Rex Ryan jokes (“TAR is something ELSE for him to lose,” etc.); as you know he was also the head coach for the Bills when they suuuuuuucked.

    I sat out on the porch for a while, while Kevin took Finn trick or treating. Most people in our neighborhood go to Page Avenue where they close the street, so it wasn’t very crowded on our street. Fine with me!

    • *shakes fists at Patriots fans, but knows deep down they are correct* 🙂

      I turned off my lights too. One of the consequences of this was when I turned my living room light back on this morning the fancy pants LED lightbulb which also has a light sensor so it is off during the day flickered constantly – think “that annoying streetlight that refuses to stop flickering – so I had to remove it

    • Barb says:

      We started TAR & are 3 episodes in. Rex Ryan losing 50 lbs just to try to be more competitive on the show – that was interesting. And doing the show with a golfing buddy.
      So far I haven’t picked a team that I like yet.
      There are a couple that annoy me.

      • I almost didn’t recognize him, but his face and teeth were giveaways.

        Yes, there are definitely teams who have already cemented themselves on my Shit List.

        As an aside:
        – how did they find so many dancers / dancer types?
        – I tend to disregard “motivational speakers”, along with “life coaches” and “social media influencers”

    Wordle in 4 starting with SALET.

    We need to start watching TAR so we can catch up with the cool kids. Watching it always makes me feel good about our relationship … and also to never test it on TAR.

    As you might imagine, we had no trick-or-treaters. I did have candy on hand just in case. The fact it’s my favorite candy was purely coincidental don’t ya know.

    Work drama continues. My resolve to stick it out for another 6 months is shaky at the moment.

    Just me and the kids for a few days while Steve is in Birmingham working. I’m sure he’ll enjoy a full night’s sleep without any George shenanigans. Scheduling his neuter (George, not Steve) this month; maybe that will slow him down a bit.

  5. Barb says:

    Mini was not working for me – took over 2 minutes.
    Wordle – 5 – and that word was not on my radar at all

  6. GD squirrels keep fucking up WLF. I was hoping my respect for one of their dead would buy me some respect in return, but let’s face it, squirrels are assholes.

    I need to decide if I am going to be on the lookout for discarded gourds this year. For the past two years I have been adding them to my compost bins.

  7. Steve says:

    Good afternoon from the command center of the Birmingham Fed. It sounds impressive, until you realize there isn’t any cash on hand.

    At times on the drive over, it was foggy AF, and not being on known roads, it was dicey at best.

    Wordle in 6 and I was damn glad.

    Debbie, I have the package. You may get some if you promise you aren’t going to neuter me.

    And the FB password has been changed, due to a hacking attempt.


    • If you are neutered you will no longer have the package. Hahahaha, I crack myself up!

      • Barb says:

        Paulie – that answer did make me laugh. Twice in 1 day here people are extra witty. I need to up my game.

        Back from my doc appt, mainly to get mammogram ppwk. It is SO DUMB you have to go to a doctor to get that ppwk. They made me wait way too long, I had to give them a little talking to about how my time is as valuable as theirs.

        Might go to a chick flick ($6 night) with Annette tonight – George Clooney & Julia Roberts. Allan is working, so why not.
