2020 SELF ISOLATION – Things I’ve Learned

I now have a favorite pair of pajamas, a favorite nightgown, a favorite pair of slippers and a favorite sleep mask.

I can wear my hair up or down, straight or curly, spiked out or greased flat.
I can put on a wig, long or short.
I can dry shampoo, regular shampoo or shampoo not at all!

I can do my make-up like the Joker in Batman or like a really hot hooker with lashes for days, smokey eyes and luscious lips.

Unfortunately, I can also eat an entire pie, cake, a dozen donuts, two dozen cookies, a bag of Tostino pizza rolls, 3 boxes of hot pockets and every granola bar we have in the house PLUS all of the chocolate milk and ice cream!
Basically, anything sweet and/or filled with carbs. I’m there.

That being said, unless there are men out there – other than the ones who go for the Kartrashians and their big ‘ol construction-grade, silicone injected fat asses – who like a little more A LOT MORE cushion for the pushin’ it doesn’t look like my lashes for days, smokey-eyed, luscious lipped hooker gig will be a go.

Needless-to-say, my low carb lifestyle has gone out the window but not before I lost 15lbs. Now, I’m afraid to get on the scale… It’s so much safer on the couch. The couch doesn’t judge me or weigh me!

I hope that all of you are staying in – if you can – and staying healthy. I hope the coronavirus’ tentacles haven’t reached too far into your families, certainly not health-wise and hopefully not employment wise.

In the midst of all of this chaos I am finding much to be thankful for and I hope that you are too.

I’m thankful that my family and friends are healthy.
I’m thankful for all of the people who are out there working daily among this virus to take care of us in every way. Those people truly are the heroes.
And I am so very thankful for my faith and the gift of being able to believe without seeing.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

2020 TUESDAY’S MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Disco Fever Edition

“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist. Or as I like to call it –
“Your local serial killer hunting ground.”

WHATEVER HAPPENED TO?
Whatever happened to meeting someone at the bar and going home with them? Does that still happen? I haven’t had a drink in over a year and I never go to bars anymore. I’m a 39-year-old single male missing the good old days. Miss the thrill of waking up next to someone and thinking “Maybe this is the one. She’s cute! She must have had beer goggles.”.
***Dear 39 year old single male. You can still have those “good old days” but you’ll probably have to, um, I don’t know…
Climb into a fucking TIME MACHINE and have them drop you at the first DISCOTHEQUE you fly over.

“What happened to meeting someone at the bar and going home with them?”
Hhhmmmm… Let’s see…
AIDS.
Any other STD. 
Every creepy crime show on cable or streaming on wifi which documents that “thrill” of NOT waking up next to someone… Freak.
Oh, and dating apps.

Also. You’re talking one night stands and beer goggles? You’re not 39 creeper.


First, I wish I could have a Paczki from back home.
Second, yaaawwwnnnn… I’m still waking up. Today is a twofer post, the Monday/Tuesday combo because I literally stayed in bed all day yesterday. Not even kidding. I felt like I was coming down with something and spent a ridiculous amount of time sleeping. Apparently, I needed it. Since having cancer I have learned to listen to my body.

Not much going on out here. My pup is finally gaining weight again after being so sick so I am over the moon about that.

I’ve been adding to my crafting inventory and finishing up a few personal projects.

My grandson Aidan turned 13 this month.
He loves knives so I got him this one. I know nothing about knives I just thought this one looked cool.
He loves it. So, score one for Mimi.

❤ Finally catching up on Law & Order SVU.
Meet “Sonny Carisi” my new crime show crush.
His real name is Peter Scanavino. ❤
An exquisite example of the finest Italian hottie quite possibly on the planet.
Who doesn’t love an Italian stallion?

Okay. Jumping off to get on with my real life of whatever the hell it is that I do. Today I have zero planned and I’m okay with that. I’m still trying to shake the cobwebs outta’ my head after an early morning and that all day sleep coma yesterday. Geesh.

I’ve been around to visit with all of you and just so you know, you’ve made me laugh and cry this morning so that’s a balanced start to my Tuesday.
I hope you’re all having a great day.
Lemme’ know what your week looks like in the comments below pleeaase.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Sesame Street Edition

❤ “Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist. These are real “love notes” that strangers leave for other strangers in the ‘Personals’ section of Craigslist. Or as I like to call it –
“Your local serial killer hunting ground.”

LOOKING FOR BERT
Looking for an old friend. He used to work at Hillcrest. Bert. He was an arborist.
***Umm… Bert moved a looooong time ago.
Apparently, he’s in the Sesame Street witness protection program.
WALGREENS WOMAN RED NISSAN ANKLE TATTOO
I was with arm sling. You were Checking out. I commented on ankle tattoo. You kept looking at me when sitting in car. Shoulda gave number. Here’s the second chance…you had beautiful smile and eyes too.
***You were with arm sling?? Who the hell is arm sling?
You sound Asian. Are you Mr. Sling and Arm Sling is your wife???
Either way, it doesn’t matter.

Asian, American or Vulcan. No number. No second chance.
NO arm sling!
Who is Ted Bundy? A serial killer who was “with arm sling” to lure his victims to their deaths!

WHITE CAR (honda possibly) AT FREEWAY ENTRANCE
we pulled up next to each other and glanced at each other. this is a total shot in the dark but im trying to reach out and see where things could go.
M4F
***Dear M4F, you’re a fucking idiot. Where things could go??? You’re getting on the freeway you freak! She wasn’t glancing at you she was trying to see if she could merge on over but your big ‘ol drooling head was in her way!
You’re trying to reach out? Try reaching out to a psychiatrist.
Happy Monday! Happy February!!

So much happening on the world stage and all of it makes my head hurt.
On the plus side, the impeachment hearings have ended.

Spent all morning and afternoon in my car bouncing around like a pinball all around Boise!
BONUS : I showed up for an appt today that isn’t until tomorrow. So that’s where my head’s been all day.

So stinkin’ tired. I’m pretty sure I only got 3 hours of sleep last night and it wasn’t all at once.

What have all of you been doing? Everybody have a nice weekend?
Weatherwise, we had a little bit of everything, some snow, lots of rain and then beautiful sunshine which was a bit deceptive as it was colder than a witch’s tit in a brass bra!

Can’t wait for the weather to warm up so I can complain that it’s hotter than two squirrels fucking in a wool sock!

Okay, I’m out of here and on to catching up on your posts until my eyelids slam shut. Hope you’re having a good start to your week.

MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR TODAY –

2020 – WORDY WEDNESDAY ON THURSDAY – Tea Vibes

I posted this pic on Monday’s post, Monday Rain.
Well, Lit’l Miss Bijoux from Bytes From The Burbs who I absolutely adore commented this –
Ok, don’t kill me, but is that a vibrator in your tea? LOL! The Monday Vibe with that oddly shaped green thing is throwing me!

HILARIOUS!
But why in the name of all things vibrators and tea would I put a vibrator IN my tea??

Also, Bijoux I know the exact vibrator you’re thinking of.
Vibrators aside. Altho they’re not much use there…
No, that was not a vibrator in my tea it was, of course, a tea infuser!
You can get them as a whole set if you want to.
And Bijoux, you can get a whole set of these kinds of “tea infusers” too.
To be fair to tho, I can see how you might get confused.
Soooo, I missed posting this on Wordless/Wordy Wednesday so it’s a twofer Thursday.

Yesterday I ran errands with my beautiful friend Miranda and today, I’m just happy to be alive!
For some reason, Miranda felt the need to glide thru every yellow light that could have potentially caused a t-bone crash into the passenger side of her vehicle where coincidently enough, I was sitting!
But, but, but… Wait. Miranda did STOP at one yellow light…
Yeah. The light that could have put the driver’s side – HER – in harm’s way of a t-bone crash.

Also. When we went to Costco, Miranda wouldn’t buy us those delicious peanut butter cookies so we could both ditch our stupid diets…
And she says she loves me.
Today I’ve got nothing going on except getting these big ass donation bags over to the Idaho Youth Ranch and out of the dining room and now living room!
After that, I’ll be doing some kind of crafting. I don’t know what just yet.

What’s happening with all of you?
We have some nice weather coming up so I’m hoping to spend some time on the back patio repotting some house plants. I so cannot wait for spring!

It’s almost the weekend?
Plans anyone?
Is the weather holding up for everyone?

Summer’s coming up fast too, is anybody planning an awesome summer vacation?
Personally, I wouldn’t get on a plane right now if it was free but a road trip is always fun and free of deadly flu viruses.
