    The season's a quarter done. Babcock has made no changes to his approach since well over a year ago. The Leafs are supposed to be contenders. They won't make the playoffs at this pace. They've dropped 4 in a row. Only won in regulation twice in 15 games. So on and so forth.



    His insightful comment after each embarrassing loss is "The players just have to try harder."

    Leafs fans are in constant pain and looking for people to blame for it. Babcock has long been groomed as our next harvest.

    Attempted a conversation with a former best friend I haven't spoken to in weeks.

    Did not go well. Back to isolation I go.

    Rant: My mother is an idiot. She got a Nigerian scam email and thinks it's real because they used her last name. Despite the supposed bank using a gmail account and mentions of a LinkedIn account she doesn't have. I told her that and she told me I was jealous. :mad:

    Spoiler :
    I waited until she left the apartment and went onto her computer and deleted the email entirely. Thankfully before she responded to it.

    They're tough. The meanest one I ever got was through our adoption profile. Fake ultrasounds and everything. Lots of flags too. It wasn't questionable even if it was slick. Fooled the agency at first glance. It picks on what you want so bad. They made me crush an innocent hope out of her eyes. If I hate anyone, it's who made me do that.

    You're an angel aimee.

    I actually came close to falling for a scam apartment rental, I was ready to give them the money then suddenly I realized that paying the money without having actually seen the apartment would be incredibly stupid and then I did some research and was like oh yeah wow bullet dodged

    Bought four weeks of salami.

    One week in, body no longer accepts salami.

    Now have three weeks of salami as a nice paperweight.

    Silly question, but why would you buy a month's supply of a perishable substance? Does salami really go off that slowly?

    Well, salami is cured. And it's sealed in several packages. A package is only open for 2-3 days before it's empty. The expiry date, when unopened, is February 2020.

    It was also on sale for 40% off, and salami is god-awful expensive.

    I am curious as to what "body no longer accepts Salami" entails, but not sure if I really want to know the answer

    Think of a cup of coffee, except it smells like salami spice and should not be consumed.

    Or, you know, maybe don't. Self-care.
