Editor’s Note: Gaylon is working on a project and most elements of The Daily Dose – Leading Off, The Sunday Bottom 5, On This Date, Some Philosophy Crap, Trivia – are either on hiatus or running intermittently. Your full-service Daily Dose will return, probably later this spring, though perhaps in the summer.  

The Sunday Bottom 5
A ranking of some things.

1. Pittsburgh Pirates Calliope put up over home stadium following fielder chasing runner back to home plate and batter missing first base, nullifying home run…Rumors continue to persist manager keeping job only because of stockpile of comprising pics of front office staff. 

2. More Baseball CrapMLB announces umpires actually going to be required to enforce entire rule book, as pitchers will now be checked for illegal substances, a problem partially blamed for current historically low batting averages…Look, people, you can’t decide which rules you are going to enforce and when you are going to enforce them…Both record book and paying customers entitled to better.  

3. Lauren Daigle She’s back!!!…Single You Say returns to #1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Singles chart for Billboard all-chart record 130th non-consecutive week…It’s eighth time the song has moved into the #1 spot, which Sunday Bottom 5 pollsters are “pretty sure” is another all-chart record…Still-envious Morman Tabernacle Choir redoubling efforts to have similar success with disco version of Nicene Creed now set for late-summer release. 

4. NCAA & Congress: A Love Story Collegiate sport governing body desperate to get help from Congress as pesky athletes now demanding opportunity to cash in on billions of dollars their free labor makes for major division college athletics…This despite fact Congress has no more business getting involved in this than the Vatican does. 

5. Donald Trump Supporters – Former president and GOP leader remains a lying sexual predator who believes the moon is part of Mars…And that the Revolution was won by the securing of British airports…Sunday Bottom 5 pollsters still asking Trump supporters which of these elements continues to solidify your support???

The Diary of a Nobody/June 12

It’s Read Free Sunday (RFS) at The Diary. Enjoy. 

It’s Sparrow, an average man passing an average life…

Saturday, June 12
Amy was not in good humor tonight when yours truly reported for duty at the hotel…Amy is on record as not being pleased with the results of the tech refresh, especially how some reservations don’t get uploaded in a timely manner, tho I haven’t heard Q or Mark whine about this.

The Diary of a Nobody – Sparrow doesn’t get his sleep. Today’s Diary. 

The cat kept pressing her case, tho, and I had two options: put her in time out and close the bedroom door – which neither of us like – or get up, put some coffee on and get the day started…It was a nail-biter of a vote, but the fact I wasn’t getting right back to sleep tipped matters and getting up squeaked out the narrow win.

The Diary of a Nobody – Sparrow cleans the cabin, tries a new route for his walk and shaves the dome. 

Today’s Diary.

This is a new route and my guts – call it the instincts all the great ones have if you must – said this was about two miles and I checked it later on that website that tracks distances down to inch and sure enuff it was…A bit more actually.

It’s Read Free Fortnight at The Diary. See what’s shaking with Sparrow with his compliments. 

The Diary of a Nobody – Mark takes the bait, Sparrow makes yet another change to using touch screens at the hotel and there is some scratch paper drivel, too.

Today’s Diary. 

For the second consecutive night, I‘ve modified my Touch Screen Usage (TSU) policy…Before, use at the back office computer was deemed too tedious, then last night it was modified to occasional use but tonight it was used as often as possible, simply because it’s shiny and new and I could…Sometimes you fat-finger the wrong button, but if you’re careful you can generally avoid this.

The Diary of a Nobody/June 9

Read Free Fortnight at The Diary is still a thing.

It’s Sparrow, an average man passing an average life…

Wednesday, June 9
Mark took the bait. 

Regular readers of this crap know Mark has, for a couple of months now, been accenting his cash drawer spreadsheets (CDSS) by highlighting the day, date, totals and even his name…Regular readers of this crap also know Mark has been using the same blue ink and red highlighter the past couple of weeks now. 

And recall yesterday, in an effort to tempt him to use other colors, I put every color of pen and highlighter in easy reach of his preferred left front desk computer.

Writing worth reading. Usually. 

The Diary of a Nobody – At the hotel, Sparrow has already revised his one-day-old Touch Screen Usage policy. Today’s Diary. 

The problem tho, is it is a hassle to go from touch screen to mouse and back…It’s easier to keep using the mouse – or my treasured keyboard shortcuts – so while touch screen usage is now authorized in the back office, it won’t be used a whole lot.

Twice today people tried to pass blame off on me when nothing was my fault…Both were rather subtle about it, too.
