2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – It Ain’t Easy Being Cheesy

 

“Missed Connection Monday” is brought to you by your local Craigslist and this week by fellow blogger Joe over at ‘Cranky Old Man because he said he missed these ‘Missed Connection’ posts.
So, thank you, Joe, for the encouragement! Enjoy!

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.”


❤ CHEETOS
You was such a beautiful dark skin short angel you had on a sexy dress and a mask. Hopefully you see this and we can talk more and go shopping I will get the items on the top shelf for you. If this is you reply with the color of dress you was wearing!
***Okay, Mr. Cheetos…
First, THIS! Second, THIS!
And NO this does not qualify as social distancing…


❤ FIXED SOMETHING AT YOUR HOUSE
Was at your place this afternoon replacing something defective. U owe me a beer. Let me know what I was doing and my name. Would love to have a beer and maybe more?
***If she’s smart she’ll be replacing something else defective… YOU!
“Let me know what I was doing and my name.”
Hhhhmmmm. What you were doing…


Oh, and your name??? That’s easy.


HAPPY MONDAY!!!
How’s everybody doing?
What fun things did you do this weekend?
Is everybody in lockdown mode or were you able to get out n’ about?

We had a rainy weekend so I was in at the sewing machine.

I shared with you in my last post that since sheltering in place I’ve been doing a lot of online purchasing. My go-to shopping fix is Amazon but lately, Etsy and eBay have been thrown into the mix as well and it has been so fucking frustrating!

I always make it a point to check the USA box on all sites. I want all of my shops here so I’m not waiting a bazillion years for my shit. Well, as I learned, some of these shops are just out n’ out shysters! – Hey, there’s a word nobody uses anymore. – But seriously. They’re shady as hell. I waited almost a month for elastic and interfacing even tho both sellers on Etsy and eBay stated their shops were located in the U.S.
The shops are located in some other country. The warehouses they ship to are in the U.S. I know because when I was tracking all this crap it was sitting in warehouses in Seattle, WA. and Los Angeles, CA for almost a whole fucking month. I was so fed up I told the seller I wanted a refund which surprisingly was done the next day, in fact, the very day everything arrived! Ugh. After that, I now send all sellers messages. I want to know if the product is at your home or out in your garage. Can you physically touch it? If the answer is yes I place the order and I don’t care if it’s more expensive. I’ll pay extra just to get my shit in time.
Can you tell how fucking irritated I am?

Next up, Amazon. To be fair, Amazon has never let me down… Until… I purchased the biggest piece of shit vacuum I’ve ever seen! Not even kidding! Every bit of it was cheap plastic! The suction was great thru a 3″ inch slit!!! No roller on the bottom, no belts, just a plastic vacuum head with a 3″ inch slit. – Omg. Sounds like some people I know! – What’s really stupid is that I checked the reviews before I bought the piece of shit and it had thousands of 4/5 stars and really great written reviews. Totally makes me wonder what the hell people are vacuuming with this thing?? On the plus side, it came early. Also on the plus side. It’s going back.

Have you guys ever had any online buying horror stories?
I really miss just being able to go into a store and pick up what I actually need locally.


❤ As you all know I love to craft. I’ve been doing a lot of sewing but I was totally ready for a change so I started embroidery by hand and I totally suck at it but I’m not giving up.
Holy hell. The many, many, many things that are wrong with those leaves… That one that’s half done on the left? Every tip of every leaf is supposed to have a french knot.
Yeah… Well, obviously that didn’t happen but I’m not done, and no matter what I’m not giving up. I refuse to allow a little hand embroidery to kick my ass.
My goal is to have one embroidery done a month. I started last month and managed this…
I’m following some YouTube tutorials.
I’ve also got a cross-stitch project going but I won’t be sharing that until it’s complete.


Okay well, it’s been another blog post the length of ‘War and Peace’ and I’m certain I’ve bored you all to near death but I’m here and I’m blogging and I’m just really trying to get back into and stay in the blogging groove.

It’s the beginning of the week so you know I want to know what you have planned.
Lemme’ know in the comments below.
Take care of yourselves. Be safe and be well.


MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –

2020 MISSED CONNECTION MONDAY – Older women

❤ “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.

OLDER WOMAN EYEBALLING ME
You were buying a few things and quickly walked off. I’ve always wanted to see what an older woman was capable of. You stared at me, are you interested? Tell me what you bought so I know it’s really you.
***I’ve always wanted to see what an older woman is capable of.”
What are older women capable of???
Hhhhhmmmm…
Say hello to Katherine Knight.

“When investigators searched her home, they found his head in a pot, boiling away on the stove with some vegetables.”

Still curious what older women are capable of???

FLYING J
It was good seeing you today. Wouldn’t mind catching up if you would like. If not it’s okay, you looked amazing in those green pants with the boots.
***Gee, thanks Tink. Now please step away from the crack pipe.

❤ Hey, hey, hey! Happy 1st Monday of the New Year! Not anymore special than any other Monday really but this one just kinda’ sets the year in motion. Everybody’s back to work, back to school, back to routines, keeping or tossing those New Year’s resolutions.

❤ I’m happy to say that my unplugged weekend was a success and wonderfully peaceful.
Reading, relaxing and enjoying a weekend of yummy teas.

JANUARY BOOK OF THE MONTH
My gently used book is really good so far!
❤ WEEKEND TEA
‘Alaska Black Tea Whale Tail Raspberry’
A gift “Miranda” brought back for me from their trip to Alaska.
SO yummy!

❤ Currently, there are powerline tree trimmers in the back and I’ve heard things hit my window no less than 6 times so I’m hoping nothing comes crashing thru!

❤ On tap today is a continuation of my “decrapifying.” It’s a decluttering challenge from the Facebook group, Becoming Unbusy. Toss 100 things in a weekend.

I started on Dec. 27, 2019, and so far I have 90 things tossed so clearly, I’ve failed the weekend toss but today I’m going thru nail polish and all things nails and that will put me OVER 100 things. Go me!

UPDATE: The tree trimmers DID break my window! fuckers Not a hole but a crack from top to bottom! The glass guys are a week out so I hope our mild winter stays mild.

❤ Okay. Heading out to run some errands and then home to finish decrapifying!

What’s on tap for all of you?
Back to work, back to school, back to old routines, new routines???
Happy Monday!
Let’s all have a great week ahead, shall we??
