Not 'intensely disliked', but saddened that The Blue Side isn't used for silly play, like it used to be. Guess we're all sober-sides now. Phooey, but OH WELL!

It's hard to be light hearted when you fear for your republic during the darkest hours of the year during the biggest capitalist holiday of the year.

I think the world is going to hell in the proverbial hand-basket, faster and faster than it ever has to this point. 

I have, more often previously than lately, had the ability to just pitch a lot of crap right over my shoulder. You can call it selling-out, or being apathetic, having a 'good' handle on dissociation, but I can't carry it all. God gave me humor and I'm going to use it because it is a sin not to use a gift from God....and that includes farting, because God gave (most) all of us the gift and ability to release abdominal gas and obtain relief from doing so. So, see, holding back your farts could be a sin.

I think eventually all the lying, cheating, self-centered politicians and others are going to have their very own Waterloo Experience. Fortunately that isn't my responsibility.

I can only do what I can do. My motto, for years, has been "Laugh or Go Crazy". I got too close to the "Crazy" several times in my life, enough to know that laughter is my saving grace. It isn't always lighthearted, though. I can make very mean funny stuff to make a point. Wish I could find my "Manifesto" I wrote 20+ years ago; it is SO VERY serious, because the Thesaurus is my friend; so, my manifesto is actually quite hysterically funny as it calls down the truth in no uncertain terms.

It may not have ever changed anythng, but it sure made ME feel a lot better, and gave plenty of people a good, hearty round of laughter.

Gosh I'm awfully lecture-y! OH WELL!

So frustrating when the expiration date for a perishable item is stamped right over some other package printing. Like I bought the item FRESH, but haven't used it yet. I want to know if it's still OK. But, grrrrr  ?!

And in the same vein, when the 'easy to rip here' phrase is on a package, and I CANNOT for the life of me, rip it!!!  ?

And those inner seal films/disks that you're just supposed to peel back ...  ?

 

 

I posted this before, but it still grinds my teeth ... I couldn't twist open a Renuzit bathroom fragrance thing-y this morning. I need the muscles of a Superman to twist it. So it still sits on the bathroom sink until ...

Couldn't rip open a bag this morning  Had to use my hand-dandy scissors/shears that I carry just for THAT reason in my walker's bag. They're from QVC and people who use them just LOVE them. Good for lefties or righties. 

I dislike, rather HATE when I needlessly WASTE food/pantry items. Part of my New Year's wish list. Am tossing ~3# hamburger that I froze 8/18. I recently looked at my freezer stuff and must have just not connected that the packages were 2018, not 2019 as this is now 2020. I was wanting to take out something to make another soup. I do have a smoked beef sausage link that I freq use, and I have some open canned diced tomatoes (use it or lose it) with dry beans and frozen vegs. So soup it will be. The project after the soup will be a crab spaghetti sauce - again I have the stuff, don't want to waste it.

Since my hospitalization last year, I'm just beginning to get some spark to do things again. But my endurance/stamina just isn't there to get really fancy. Hadn't been feeling well for awhile prior to the hospitalization, so I have a lot of dated things to start catching up on.

I hate it that Nannie will NOT speak clearly or raise her volume when she does talk. She does this weird, chirpy run of words all stuck together in a very Southern accent. I KNOW she has volume and can project her voice if she WANTS TO. She uses the shallow air in her throat instead of her diaphragm to speak. When you tell her she isn't speaking loud enough or clearly, she says, "You know, I don't know WHY, but everybody tells me that."  ...Um, maybe because they can't hear or understand you?

I also hate it when she starts saying how much she likes it here because it is so quiet!"  And then she does. not. stop. talking.

Here' s another irksome thing: Verbose Weathermen who say things like this: "The track of this storm is highly prone to shifting in the coming days, and the exact track of the storm will be a huge factor in how intense the storm will be for a given location."

D'oh! Ya think? 

Maybe he just should have shrugged and said "We don't really know. We'll have to wait and see."

..But then, that wouldn't really be a 'prediction', would it?! So, they fill their airtime with many, many words that mean practically nothing. No wonder I can't ever remember when someone asks me what the weather is doing here where I live.

... It's not 'doing' ANYTHING!

I don't like it when I am ignored.

I know this isn't the Question Game thread, but in response to this post ... Who does?

On the other hand, there are times I feel like Greta Garbo in that film where she says the line, "I just want to be left alone."

I sooooo dislike it when you go to eat a Hershey Kiss and that little inside banner tumbles out to the floor. And then you can't find it and you track it somewhere else in the  house. ??

If it's not the little inside banner then it's some itty bitty piece of tin foil wrapper.
