Can we say the Texas Government is batting 0 for 2 against mother nature in 2021?

I thought something was up when I was at the grocery store on Sunday. Probably only half the folks in there were wearing a mask. I should've known that was a sign of things to come. Nobody hassling them, nobody paying attention. But I sure noticed it. People were happy to be out and about, … Continue reading Can we say the Texas Government is batting 0 for 2 against mother nature in 2021?

Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

I'm checking the weather report about tomorrow. My dogs had some "pup-kin pie," the filling that didn't fit in the pie shells that I poured into Pyrex bowls to cook separately (they were so happy). I'd planned to make baked potatoes for over a week and had some veggies I needed to use up, so … Continue reading Thanksgiving 2020 plans; or, it’s a Thursday that happens to feature turkey or ham…

Blitz Q #154: Know anyone still using up the toilet paper from the first great toilet paper famine of March 2020?

I got a bidet, so this doesn't affect me much. I've got a 12 roll pack that could probably last me a year at this rate. However, I'm seeing there's some notices around the country that have popped up periodically indicating toilet paper is getting sparse in fits and starts. Hmm... So, it got me … Continue reading Blitz Q #154: Know anyone still using up the toilet paper from the first great toilet paper famine of March 2020?

One positive result of the COVID-19 pandemic: I don’t have to invent new excuses to duck out of Thanksgiving invites this year…

I feel like an asshole for admitting it, but with cases surging and gathering sizes being limited--again--I don't have to concern myself with making up reasons to avoid going to other people's homes for Thanksgiving. I'm not so in awe of turkey that I only eat it on certain days and I'm about to make … Continue reading One positive result of the COVID-19 pandemic: I don’t have to invent new excuses to duck out of Thanksgiving invites this year…

For those (like me) who assumed deniers that get COVID-19 will finally see the light… not so fast.

photo credit: SeattleTimes.com (David Horsey, op ed 11-17-2020) I saw a few clips about this nurse's tweet. From South Dakota, Nurse Jodi Doering finally had to express herself on her night off. I don't have Twitter, but you can find her viral tweet without much difficulty, I assume. The gist of it is even while … Continue reading For those (like me) who assumed deniers that get COVID-19 will finally see the light… not so fast.

I had to rein in my anger at Dump yesterday after the incomparable Beau reminded me of something…

I had been up since 3am yesterday because after Dump returned to the White House from the hospital and promptly took his mask off, I was just livid and it wouldn't let me sleep. And then the pictures of him going around without a mask, and then making that "don't worry" video... Yeah, let's just … Continue reading I had to rein in my anger at Dump yesterday after the incomparable Beau reminded me of something…
