Addiction LXXVIII

Notices
Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Well I got a call from my employer, and it looks like I'll be returning to work next week.

Woo hoo - my walnut magnetic knife bar is getting close! I got the keyholes cut (for hanging without visible hardware), surfaces are planed and ready for finish and I got the epoxy poured over the magnets. When the epoxy is fully set tomorrow, I'll be able to get some layers of finish on it.

Good question. Dunno. Going to KISS. Certainly nothing with pigment.

In other news, the chat last week about knives, combined with an 8-hour meeting today (vomit) inspired me to do a full natural-stone sharpening on the gyuto I use for pineapple. Thai stones instead of Japanese - binsui and then a Khao Men. With its intended use I didn’t bother finishing with the Hideriyama. After a careful hour+ it’s still sharp enough to shave off a single ridge of fingerprint.

WhyFi, in case the tagging works.

It might be a little too soon for AZ. We've done very little testing. Only 159k tested so far.

Masks and eyewear for all employees.

If they aren't requiring masks for customers, I might take a 2 week LOA. just to see what happens to the situation in AZ. We only started reopening yesterday, so we'll see how things go.

A lot of brouhaha about kitchen knives, but what about peelers? They count too.

I'm not really concerned about my own health, but I'm very concerned about spreading it to my 80 year old mother.

When I boil potatoes I don't even wash em. I figure 20 mins in boiling water is plenty good washing.

Definitely don't wanna bring that **** home!!!

I wonder if we're going to get a Open AZ spike in cases. Still way to early to tell, so I'd be tempted to put in for LOA regardless of mask policy.

It might not be bad, like if customers only slowly start to trickle back in. Or they might line up outside opening day.

RIP Joseph. I worked next to Un Sq and watched his pitch a number of times.

I love all the people I see on FB saying “it only kills the elderly or people with underlying conditions”. As if my grandmother or father just don’t matter. Or theirs.

It’s too soon everywhere IMO.

We had to make a tough tangentially Covid related decision recently. My wife has been in a couple of Chief Analytics Officer roles over the past 10ish years. Last year, the toll it took on her was just too much so she decided to leave her career and begin to study for law school with an eye toward specializing in elder law. She studied for, took her LSATs, did well and was looking at the prospect of getting significant scholarships from the schools she was applying to.

Because of the uncertainty in what is happening right now, we decided to put going to school off a year. She doesn’t want to do this type of education online and doesn’t want to face the prospect of getting sick while away with nobody nearby to take care of her. The inverse is also true.

She’s devastated, me too because it’s something she worked so hard for and took a huge risk to pursue.

Now she’s going to back to work for a year- probably doing some consulting with a friend of hours.

It’s a bummer.
