I saw Phil Collins trending on twitter and found out today is his 73rd birthday! I guess we have him to thank for the name of this thread so he is an honorable Loon thanks to the third track on Genesis’ 1985 album Invisible Touch that this thread is named for.

So after getting super sick mid week last week, I barely made it through 2 shifts Thursday and Friday before having to call out Saturday and just rest. You'd think that would be a sign to slow down but instead I worked 8 hours yesterday and decided to wash everything sheet/comforter/blanket/couch cover/clothes and stayed up until midnight folding, putting them away, and making all the beds, got less than 6 hours sleep, woke up and went to work for 10 hours and then came home and swept up, gathered 3 days of trash, and just generally cleaned up from not having much energy. I really need to not push myself like this.

Man, nothing makes me feel better than in the middle of an 11 hour shift on day 6 straight without a day off having the coworker, who makes everyone's schedule, doesn't work weekends, and refuses to run a register, boasting about how she got drunk with a bunch of our coworkers and our store manager this weekend. It's like being in high school with these people sometimes and I HATED high school.

I ran into a guy I played football with for years growing up. Hadn’t seen him since graduating high school. We got to talking for a while and his cousin Chad, who I was very close with growing up, came up. I had tons of sleepovers with Chad growing up, we rode the same bus, lived on the same road, played football together for years, were really close friends. I also haven’t seen Chad since Beach Week 2004. I knew he’d gone to VMI and joined the Army after, but I didn’t know what he’d been up to in life. Well, he became incredibly successful in the Army and has parlayed that into having three masters degrees and is now working as a United States ambassador to Israel. Dude is VERY IMPORTANT.

I fucking hate what is happening in Israel right now. As a Jewish man, it horrifies me to see what is happening to the Palestinians. I’m no Zionist. I don’t believe anyone is entitled to land that their people held thousands of years ago. Wars happen, people are displaced. It sucks, but it happens. I don’t see Americans scrambling and spending billions of US tax payer’s money to fight for Native American land redistribution. It’s messed up that these people are going through everything they’re going through.

I loved Chad like a brother growing up. I would have fought for him at the drop of a hat. I would have defended him against just about anyone in just about any circumstances. I just hope he’s doing the right thing for the right people in Israel, but something tells me he isn’t. From stuff I’ve read on his social media, he’s kept his work life very secret, probably because he has super high government clearance and it’d be super horrible for his political opinions and views on stuff to get out and it could potentially put a lot of people at serious risk.

I want to believe in him, because I’ve always believed in him as a person, as a student, as a wrestler, as a football player and as a friend. He was one of those guys you always knew would be a success. He squatted 500 pounds when he were sophomores. He wrestled for two years in school and placed third in state his second year. He got straight As, went to governors school and got straight As there. He was the best, strongest, fastest and smartest football player on our team. He had that drive to succeed that I never had and it was beautiful to see. I just feel like with that position, with his capabilities, that he could do a lot to benefit the region, but there is so much violence and bloodshed and horrible atrocities going on in Israel and Palestine right now. I’d like to believe my old friend is still the old friend that would do the right thing, but working for the Army and being in such a political position, I fear he might be one of the bad guys.

The brothers and I are planning a comic con later this year and we could have a very cool wrestling guest if things pan out. It's way too early to speak publicly but it's cool to even have the idea of working with these people.

The footage was harrowing to look at. My heart goes out to everyone involved, it certainly looks dire for anyone surviving that.

Did you see where the government raided Diddy's homes and arrested his kids while he fled the country yesterday?

You know what's really awesome? Having tons of things I'd love to watch but instead I'm having to watch Sherry scroll for hours through streaming services and not picking anything between falling asleep.

I have that problem too. I’ll go to watch something with the kids and we will spend way too much time scrolling through everything and they’ll get mad at me. I’m bad at making choices, I’m too wishy washy. If I make a choice on a movie or a show I’m also not picking 57483628855840375 other movies that I’ve never seen. So I don’t know what to choose and then I watch whatever the kids pick.
