So I was watching the Titan Games (the NBC show created and hosted by the Rock) and this week's episode included a former Stanford athlete. Former women's basketball player Michelle Harrison is now Mitch and is the first Trans athlete on the show. Got to say that this is one of the few times where I was rooting for a Stanford alum and [SPOILER ALERT] was bummed that he fell short in both events.

OUR CRUMBLING DEMOCRACY
Dixie Chicks have changed their name to The Chicks and released a catchy call-to-action tune, "March March." Also, new album is called "Gaslighter". Nice. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xwBjF_VVFvE

Friend on my other internet community found this review (look at what ingridbb said): https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/blackstrap-civil-mask-10-pack-assorted-prints-20txeacvlmskssrtdaoa/20txeacvlmskssrtdaoa
For those following along at home:
-wine was supposed to be delivered on Tuesday (required an adult)
-yesterday, the delivery company tracking system listed the package as delivered, but my doorbell never rang, and I never received it
-I called the delivery company, and they checked in with their staff. They told me, "Our driver rang the doorbell, but no one answered, so he left the package and took a picture. When he circled back at the end of his route, the package was no longer there, so he figured it had been taken inside."
-They sent me the picture, but it was very obviously not my front door.
-The delivery company told me to contact the seller for a refund/another shipment, and to have the seller file a claim with the delivery company.
Enter: my boss, the super stalker
-She suggested using Google Street View to find the door where my package had been delivered
-Unfortunately, my complex and most nearby complexes don't have Street View because there aren't really public roads. I did think that perhaps someone had turned right instead of left from the main street, but I walked over to the nearby complex, and all the house numbers were three digits (in my complex, all the house numbers are two digits)
-My boss looked up street names, house numbers, checked out Google Street View, and then started looking at real estate listings. She found a real estate listing that showed the same doorway where my package had been delivered (including the distinct style of the house number).
She said, "I couldn’t wait for my son to go to bed so I could solve the mystery!!!!"
Man, I never noticed before how much The Sisters of Mercy were influenced by Joy Division. This Peel session makes it really clear.

I realize I look like an aged Wimbledon ball boy, green shorts, deep blue-violet polo shirt.
Weird. I just noticed the URL for today's DBD is different. The last 3 had the title with spaces/punctuation replaced with '-'. Today's is just dbd-6. SGBear, did you create it as "DBD-6" and then edit it?
