Now is the perfect time for ventriloquists to start fights among people wearing masks...

I like Shaq...and I'm starting to think he now makes an appearance in EVERY single commercial now. I actually didn't know that was him with the beard, small video on the page with tiny Skype window nonsense. Then I heard the voice.

And if some of these governors lock down again, just go back to page 1 and start the commercial cycle all over again.
Cuz 'we're in this together'. Now excuse me folks, I may have to vomit again.

I haven't been to a controversial party this whole time! (There haven't been any in my county.)
Albeit hiking gets me away from the stress. There's a lake about 20 miles away from me that I've hiked twice already, just because it's so beautiful. Manastash Lake, west of Ellensburg. Last time I hiked was Friday, and there were about 10 campers up there too. I think we all had the same idea. Smile
There's a wooden fishing bench at that lake. Definitely a stress reliever, looking over the lake and hearing birds and ducks. No COVID stress, no stupid commercials to worry about. Especially since I'm a grocery employee and having to deal with the mixed reactions of the public for 4-8 hours each day.
I do have a picture to share of that lake, but the image attachment only lets me use URLs. Perhaps I'll have to put it on Mediafire and post it.

Are we "still in this sh*t together?" Are these still "trying times."
I see the commercials all switching to a happier theme now, "Welcome back," go on road trips with Infiniti, Toyota, Lexus, etc etc.

...and the daily Covid cases are at a daily all time high. 

MAYBE Back to school commercials??  Maybe not this year???

Exactly!

And that dumb ass Trump says he can hold funds for local schools if they don't open this fall.  What an uninformed assbag.  Most schools are funded by county and state revenue.

And normally around this time we'd be seeing back to school commercials, and we would be posting on how much we hate them. (I.E. the kid 'actors,' the dancing, etc.) Albeit that was before COVID + lockdowns screwed up the world.
I kinda miss that.

My workplace now has a 'no mask, no service' rule for everyone effective today. We basically have to kick out anyone not wearing a mask. FACE SHIELDS ARE NOT ALLOWED FOR ANYONE EITHER. WTF. So a big middle finger to those people who rely on seeing lips because they are hard-of-hearing?
Employees are not allowed to wear shields OR bandannas anymore. Angry

I was in a restaurant last night enjoying a Chicken Parmesan and an IPA on tap. TVs were on playing ESPN UFC reruns. None of the commercials were COVID-19 themed; in fact there was a promo for the NBA returning Jul 31st where the basic message was 'it's time'. Felt good and kind of normal for once. They will all be at Disney World isolated from crowds, we'll see what happens. Same with the MLB once they start.
I'm glad I went out last night; we all know Inslee could follow Newsom at any time and shut the restaurants down again. He's threatening 'significant restrictions' if cases don't go down. I'm in a phase 3 county with zero deaths, 75% restaurant capacity.

Sadly it did not take long for the marketing oafs to latch on to COVID as just another advertising tool.
