2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Who was that masked man?

 “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.”


❤ @THE MAVERICK, SHORTIE
I’m not sure how old you are or if you’re single but wow was I attracted to you right away even with that cute mask you had on.
*** Dear Maverick, I think you need to get your eyes…

❤ TINDER SEARCH
Hi, my name is Lindsey and I’m looking for my missed connection. I matched with a man named Peter who is 24, 6’3″ and goes to the U of I. We really connected and I accidentally unmatched with him. If any of you know him, please help me find him again!
*** Dear Lindsey, get in line. A lot of women/men are looking for a peter…
And if he happens to be 24 and 6’3″… BONEus! 
Better to rob the cradle than the kennel.


That quote up there really says it all for me!
To be honest, I think we could all use a new month and a new mindset.
I don’t know about any of you but emotionally I am wiped out!

It’s time for some…
Can I get an amen??!!
AMEN!!!


How’s everybody doing? I hope you’re all healthy and I hope none of you got caught in the protesting and riots.
It’s a crazy time to be sure. I’m happy to say that Boise had a peaceful protest of about 300 people.
Granted, we don’t have a large black community but racism is, unfortunately, in every community.


We’re at Phase 3 of 4 for reopening Idaho. The pools, water parks, bars, and movie theaters have been added to the list and I think that about wraps up all of the businesses.
Phase 4 is just increasing how many people can go here, there and everywhere while still following the CDC guidelines.
So, basically, it’s your life. Do what’s right for you.

For me, due to my compromised immune system, I will continue to avoid crowds, I’ll continue social distancing, and I’ll be wearing my mask when I go in most places.
However, if it doesn’t rain and temps aren’t in the 90’s or triple digits I’ll be putting my new trek poles to work on the trails and NOT wearing a mask but I’ll have one just in case a ginormous marathon of trailblazers come storming up behind me!
Aren’t they pretty? They really help with steeper inclines and they do help you get a bit further on down the trails.
I can almost hear Roy and Dale now…
It’s okay, you can groan.


Needless-to-say, I’ve been getting a lot of crafting in.
Cross stitching, crocheting, and making sparkly bows for my granddaughters.
Anything to keep my mind off of the chaos.
I listen to a lot of jazz music while I craft. I listen to the BGM Channel on Spotify but it’s on iTunes and YouTube (free) as well.
About the only time, I’m not listening to music is when I’m reading. Some people can listen and read at the same time and I have no idea how they do it.
My kids used to listen to super loud music while they did their homework and since none of them failed I’m guessing the music didn’t interfere.

Speaking of reading, this is the book I’m starting tomorrow.
I try to start a new book at the beginning of every month. I have no idea what this book is about but it looks creepy.
I guess I’ll see.


What are your thoughts on getting out n’ about?
Are you going all-in or are you approaching with caution?
What have you been doing to pass the time during the pandemic?
Are any of you doing some crafting or DIY projects?
What about reading? What books are you reading?
Please do share with us because ya’ know, we really are in this together.

I’m keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
Be safe and be kind.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR TODAY –

AND WHILE WE’RE AT IT… Brain Dump

I get it. Grocery shopping is one of those necessary evils in life.
I don’t have to like it and surprise! – I don’t.
So many people don’t have their shit together at the grocery store and it’s super annoying to those of us that do.

Top of the list?
The “no list” shoppers!
They bob about aimlessly like a grocery store zombie with ZERO in their cart scanning every single shelf up n’ down every single aisle.

And speaking of aisles…
There should be a GIANT sign that reads…
People with lists.
People like me would like to get their fucking shopping done and get home.
Is it really too much to ask?
And while we’re at it…
I saw these in the cracker/cookie aisle.
Entertainment Crackers… Seriously?
There is nothing entertaining about “Entertainment Crackers” so let’s just leave those off of the holiday entertaining list.
They’re like little discs of concrete that people spread shit on and call it an
appetizer. They’re disgusting AND one bite – if you can bite it – and it’s a mess.
I don’t like messy foods especially at a party or get together.

And speaking of messy foods.
Here’s another do not add it to your entertaining list.
GIANT strawberries with that hard ass waxy chocolate shit on them!
Seriously.
Have you ever just watched people try to bite into those things???
You’d have to have a flip-top head like a fucking Pez dispenser!
Just.Say.NO!!!

Also… To the salad bringers.
NO PICKLE BUTTS EVAH!!!
I come across these in salads ALL.THE.TIME!!
No pickle butts people!
That’s my photo. See. I cut the pickle butts off then I do this really crazy thing…
I throw them the fuck away. Why??? Because they’re pickle butts.
IN OTHER NEWS –
I’ve been battling computer issues for most of the day. Specifically, my printer. It’s not even a year old. The ink is new, I ran all of the tests, removed and reinstalled and it still won’t print in black. I had this problem once before and I can’t remember what the fix was.
Whatevs… I’ll try again tomorrow.
Cleaning up my craft area today and I realize I have at least 4 glue guns and a MILLION glue sticks!
Also, a BAZILLION buttons!!!
It’s confirmed. Yes, I do have S.T.A.B.L.E Syndrome.
Altho truth be told. I’d much rather have Stabler syndrome…
Totally miss this guy.
Holy crap what a nonsensical brain dump. All my complaining about shit I almost forgot it’s ‘Thankful Thursday.’
3 things I’m thankful for today.
– This blog so I can bitch n’ moan.
– Buttons because ya’ never know when you might need one or a bazillion
– Water because it’s good to be hydrated!
I hope you’re all having a great day. One more day til the weekend!
I’ll be spending my weekend sewing. At least that’s my plan but plans are always subject to change.
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.
