The Weekend Docket

A decorative image that says "The Mission Within Weekend Docket."

What’s good, everyone? It’s the first Friday of the month, and the first Friday of the Year of the Tiger, and that means one thing: weekend time! My weekend plans are to continue moving forward with my job hunt, and throw some more stuff up on eBay.

I had two interviews that ultimately went nowhere. It fuckin’ figures. So what else is new, eh? Guess it’s even more proof that this is a life sentence. At this point, I’m a million-percent convinced the Job Gods hate me.

In any case, I’m also hoping to hit up the craft store at some point, since there’s a sale going on this weekend, and there’s something I’d really like to make for Valentine’s Day, or Palentine’s Day for me. It’s also called Galentine’s Day, but I think we should expand that to include those who don’t identify as “gals,” and instead call it Palentine’s Day.

What are your weekend plans? Better than mine, I hope? If not, then know that we’re in this shyt together, and we’ll duke out the storm together. In any case, drop your weekend plans like they’re hot below, and let’s get the party started.

To ring in the weekend, I’ve got us some links to talk about, share, what have you.

The Olympics started today with the opening ceremony. Anyone else watching?

I’d love to try this recipe for peri peri chicken sometime. Just gotta find some fresh birds eye chiles, otherwise I think I have pretty much everything called for in the recipe.

Same with this recipe for caramelized onion and mushroom dip.

These cauliflower tacos look like a great way to use up the taco shells I’ve got knocking around in my pantry.

This kid stuffed a book he wrote and drew into the library’s collection. Awesome!

This article about worker surveillance on the rise is horrifying. There’s no way in hell this can be legal here in the U.S., and if it is, then it just means our laws haven’t caught up with the times. It kinda reminds me of these stories I read about in the news in high school where these creepy assmunch landlords spied on tenants with hidden cameras. That being said, this extreme level of micromanaging remote employees is probably a sign of much bigger problems, and the companies that feel like this is what it takes would be better off exploring why and what can be done to deal with it.

Speaking of companies, color me not surprised that Meta’s stock’s dropping like this. If the way they treat their employees is anything to go by, and btw, I’ve heard nothing good about them, then I’m shook they’re even still in business.

Kiribati, a community off the coast of New Zealand has been impacted by the Omicron variant after two years of taking so many precautionary measures to keep their residents safe.

A great piece about Valerie Thomas’s contributions to science, namely launching the longest-running program dedicated to imaging the surface of the Earth. BTW, her outfit rules!

A piece about the author of Goodnight Moon. I’m pretty sure I remember reading that as a kid at school one year.

How to grade up a pattern. This’ll probably come in handy at some point, but it’s good to file away for the future.

Last, but not least, a signal boost for a missing child. There is an active AMBER Alert for 2 day old Kennedy Hoyle of Memphis, TN. The last confirmed sighting of her was in the vicinity of Sedgewick Drive and Levi Road, and she had on a black and white polka-dot onesie and pink pants. If you see a baby matching her description, make that call ASAP. Let’s get her home safe to those who love her.
