Never heard of a "distributed reception" before.  They distribute, you receive.  Makes sense!
Don't lay up treasures for yourselves on Earth, where they can decay or be stolen.  Lay up treasures for yourselves in Heaven, where there is no decay or theft.  Where your treasure is, you heart will be also.


You can't take it with you.  You can only send it on ahead.

We had something like this today for our awards ceremony. Food and non alcoholic drinks distributed across buildings, then we zoomed in. it went better than I expected.

A "tragedy"? Really?

Okay, maybe a "tragedy" in the Greek fashion where the audience knew the end of the story before the play even started. Like this "tragedy" could be called Dumb-a$$, At-Risk C*nt Who Calls Mask-Wearers "Sheeple" Contracts COVID One Month before a Vaccine Is Ready and Now Might Die -- And Take His Wife with Him.

Okay, okay . . . thoughts and prayers, thoughts and prayers.

I lost my composure and actually posted something on LinkedIn that should rightfully go here.  Rapidly donning hornet gear...

When will I learn?

Some of your idiotic statements are truly breathtaking.

I'm pretty sure that giving our senior majors the choice of delaying graduation or taking a different major's 4xx level capstone course isn't going to fly.  Yes, I get that faculty reductions have made it hard to offer our department's classes at the usual frequency.  However, I would be surprised if the administration were okay with us cutting this particular class without giving everyone involved better advance warning.

Or perhaps: ‘Some of your statements are breathtakingly idiotic’ 😉

I refuse to continue engaging with your toxic behavior. I don't like the way I feel when I'm around you.

I get it. You weren't happy with the course. So get a refund, motherf*cker.

Unrelated:

Why on earth did you think that given the choice between:
1) attending a family get-together with folks from 6+ households during a Pandemic*
2) declining and risking your in-laws being a bit upset with you
that choice #1 was the better choice?!?
You work in healthcare, you have 2 young children, and you and your spouse both have jobs that can't be done from home.
No, I will not feel sorry for you as you shelter in place, have to use up 2 weeks of leave, and can't have your at-risk parents babysit for you.
Life is full of choices, choices have consequences.  You chose poorly.

Calling an “emergency meeting” to try to ram through a unilateral curricular change without following policies won’t work. For the umpteenth time, stop ignoring shared governance!

Your OPINIONS are not written-in-stone facts, and contrary to your world view, there are other people with, gasp, different opinions than yours!
