Do we know which Lodi the song is about?

The only ballot measure I really cared about is coming out the way I wanted, so that's something (totally unexpectedly, too, which makes it even better)(unexpected by me, that is. The analysts may have had a glimmer). But enough about politics.

Today I get to leave 1/2 hour early, because tomorrow I have to stay 1/2 hour late.

John Fogerty implied it was about* Lodi, California. "I wasn’t in Los Angeles. I’m not even in Cucamonga. I’m way out in Lodi! The song went from ‘Lodi’ to ‘Oh Lord, stuck in Lodi, again".

* He liked the sound of the name and it was a small town, he had never been to Lodi when he wrote it.

I don't expect people in Lodi were very happy about it!

and it probably only made it worse if he'd never even been there.

Actually yes, possibly. Combined with indecision about how to phrase that post.

The former probably depends on how they feel about the maxim, "There's no such thing as bad press."

I'm not sure about the latter. To me, an uniformed criticism is more easily dismissed since it is based on nothing.

Eh, it's a good song. It wouldn't bother me a bit if it was about my town. YMMV of course.

Of course. You can't merely say "Dismissed!" and then return their salute as they leave your office.

I guess I should do the "I'm okay, I wasn't near the area when it happened" check in after the terrorist attack and fatal stabbing in Melbourne yesterday, in case anyone heard about it and was worried. It happened on a street corner in the middle of the city which I've walked through hundreds and hundreds of times before but I was safe at home when it happened.

Three passersby were stabbed by the attacker and one died, he happened to be a well known Melburnian who'd been a co-owner of a nearby cafe since 1974 which had been a major part in shaping Melbourne's obsession with coffee culture so a fair few of my friends had met him and are fairly devastated by his death.

The attacker had several large gas canisters in the back of his vehicle and had set it alight when he crashed it in the expectation that it would explode like a bomb but that didn't happen and the police were on the scene in a very short time and the attacker was only armed with a knife so the incident was contained fairly quickly and the death toll was minimal.

Goodness.

How unfortunate for your community. Thank goodness the attempted bomber was as incompetent as he was and that Australia has done enough to ensure that these idiots are armed with only a knife.

What a scary situation.

Yes, but you have spent time in Wisconsin, and there's a Lodi there, too.

Yow.

Very glad you are OK.

Very much too bad that other people aren't. But also, a very good thing that he had a knife and not a large-magazine rifle.

I recently realized, Futurama premiered on March 28, 1999. That means next year Futurama will be 20 years old. That doesn't seem right to me. In my mind it's still current, until I realize the last new episodes aired over five years ago. Although I do have to admit some of the older episodes do feel a little dated now, at least the ones that parody then current culture. Like Fry illegally downloading celebrities' personalities from Napster. Remember Napster?

I'm getting my broken tooth extracted Tuesday. This has been a rough dental year.

Pureed turkey for Thanksgiving. I'm sorry and hope it isn't too rough.

Thanks. I don't eat meat, so giving that up won't be a challenge. Mashed potatoes with cheese is my go-to. Well, that and ice cream. . .

Well, there is tofu turkey - https://www.thespruceeats.com/homema...uffing-3378169

It looks like turkey but I'm not sure what the mouth feel is, i.e. could you eat it with the discomfort of an extracted tooth.

It would have a pretty meaty texture. It wouldn't be as difficult to chew as a meat substitute made primarily with wheat gluten, but given that it's been drained of its liquid I and baked it is going to be pretty similar to actual turkey meat.

Unhijackably, but sort of on topic, I bought myself a Gardein holiday roast today to stick in the freezer because I've never had one and at this rate I'm never going to get to have one because everyone I ever have Thanksgiving dinner with disapproves of such things. (I do not understand the blanket disapproval of meat substitutes, but hey, I'll play along. I'm making mushrooms en croute and I expect it to be awesome.)

I'm heading to Spokane for Thanksgiving (driving my own manual transmission small truck) and Xmas (driving a rental automatic SUV, just in case of snow). I will enjoy being there, and I don't usually mind the drive, but this time I'm not looking forward to it. I plan to leave at 6 am on Wednesday, hoping to miss the worst of the traffic, and the same on Sunday (I might even try to push it earlier on Sunday, but that depends on how I sleep on Saturday night).
