  1. Such sad news and a huge loss for the activity. RIP.
  2. I said the same. The directors need to show some backbone and permanently kick his ### to the curb.
  3. How about the member corps voting for a lifetime ban from the activity?
  4. I’m disappointed for his victims that the punishment doesn’t fit the crime. I can only hope he simply fades away into drum corps history. (Though I doubt he will.) He deserves no more attention or time in the spotlight. Or anything from the activity, really. Just stay away, please.
  5. Boy do I feel for all those involved. We would’ve been heartbroken if this had happened last fall, during our daughter’s senior year.
  6. I went to go pick up some takeout food last night and wore a mask as I walked into the side entrance (next to the bar) from the outside patio area and was harassed by some jack*** the entire way. Abbreviated version: First he kept trying to offer me to eat from his bowl of tortilla chips— “Just take your mask off. Why are you wearing a mask? Are you afraid of the COVID?” He and his buddy start to laugh. “No, I wear it for the same reason I wear a seat belt, because I actually have some common sense.” “Aw, c’mon, I’m just being funny.” [as I kept walking] “No, you’re not, and I **** sure don’t
  7. Actually the worst I probably won’t mention by name here. But Regiment alums know.
  8. Endless PB&J sandwiches at Sky Ryders, where the summer heat usually melted the peanut butter into a soupy mess that had to be poured onto the bread.
  9. That’s not exactly how I’ve heard it. But close enough. 🙂
  10. Most of it I’m fairly used to, because we had to wear the full gown and head covering in the dental school. It’s the N95 mask and face shield that are the problem. Specifically, getting both to work with my loupes and light. At the moment, I can’t get either to work. Even just wearing the N95 causes my loupes to be totally off kilter. So, for the moment, I’m using a KN95 with a Level 3 over it. That way, I can at least use my loupes. But it’s still an adjustment, for sure. Naturally, the new place didn’t have any kind of orientation or shadowing today (to get a better feel how things wor
  11. “Once more unto the breach.” I start my new job tomorrow. I won’t lie, I feel a little nervous— haven’t touched a handpiece since early March, new city, new job and under a double layer of PPE (including an N95, which I’ve never done before). Should be interesting. The state also recommends taking a change of clothes to put our scrubs into at the end of the day. Plus 2x/day temperature checks. Now if we only had the house situation figured out, LOL. One thing at a time...
