OCTOBER TWENTY EIGHT – Missed Connection Monday – Mimi “Flu” the coop!

“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.
BRUNETTE AT WALMART
I saw you and wanted to talk to you, but was with my two young ones. I thought we shared a fleeting glance. Was I wrong?
You had a cart full and I felt like there was a possibility of meeting again.
If by chance you see this, tell me what was in your cart so I know it’s you.
***Hhhmm. What was in my cart? Bullets for my husband’s gun. ZERO possibility of meeting again and no, we did not share a fleeting glance. We shared an “I’m here to get tampons and chocolate and bullets leave me the fuck alone” glare. But thanks. And as they say at Walmart, have a nice day.

IRONWOOD
We danced a few times last night and really didn’t get a chance to talk much. I wanted to get your number when I went to ask you were already gone. I would love to talk more. If you see this let’s grab a drink. Tell me what I was so I know it’s you.. Hope to hear from ya!

OMG BARNES AND NOBLE
Wow, what else can I say. We had a brief conversation at Barnes and Noble on Tues. We exchanged several glances in the store and waved and said goodbye when you left. You are short, dark hair. Super nice, great smile, and extremely hot! I definitely would have attempted to have more conversation but you were with someone. (I am pretty sure she knew I wanted to talk more) No idea, other than this, how to find you again. OR perhaps you will be in the same spot again? Tell me what section of the store we first met in and what color you were wearing.
***Super easy. We met at the coffee bar. I was wearing black and you can find me right here at my blog! Finally, somebody missed ME! 
Hi everyone… (Waving from the little known town of Flu-ville.) Holy smokes. When this flu hits, it REALLY hits! Man… I’m still kinda’ floating on the tail end of things but feeling SO much better than I was. My son was hit hard with it and almost hospitalized. Thankfully he’s nearly a hundred percent now.

Boy, I’ll tell ya’, this flu is no joke. I don’t know if it’s different than in years past or I’m just fucking old but once it gets a hold of you it’s a tough one to shake.
Also. I’d just like to state for the record that I did, in fact, have my flu shot so I think this is bullshit.

Also bullshit? This menu.
How have all of you been? I hope none of you have been down with this flu or a cold or anything else that makes you feel like total crap!

Anybody got any snow yet? No snow here in the valley… YET! I’m waiting. A dusting on the mountains and a town 45 minutes away got 4″. So weird.

It’s a brand new week. Who’s got plans? There is always much to do around here. Last night was pumpkin carving night. My DIL is the queen of all things horror and her pumpkin was very cool. She and my son LOVE the Stephen King movie, IT.
I made them a couple of IT Pennywise pics.
A lit’l too creepy for me but they dig it.

Also. Here’s the latest hats I’ve made. All super soft and warm.
It’s time to tie some hats and scarves to the trees for the homeless!
It’s getting cold!

Well… I think it’s time to hit up the B.R.A.T menu for those mouth-watering breakfast choices… What’ll it be?? Bananas, rice, applesauce or toast?? Hhhm.
It’ll be coffee. That’s what it’ll be!
MIMI’S THOUGHT FOR THE DAY –
Be well.

FREE TRIAL MONTH PART 2

Apparently, my “free trial month” is now a month and a half.
Geez, Louise. I’ve seriously got to get it together.
I’ve totally lost mine.
For someone who doesn’t lead a particularly busy life, I sure am busy!
I’ve also had computer issues and have been constantly battling the cold/flu season out here. Fortunately, still no flu but I have had the sniffles and that may just be some kind of mental trigger that happens when I’m out n’ about and inconsiderate assholes people cough/sneeze in public and DON’T COVER!
(Huge pet peeve. Read this post.)
The good news? As I said, no flu. I’m feeling much better than I was a couple of days ago. I’m still tired and achy but I’m getting better.
The BEST news? My son and daughter-in-law bought me a new computer for Valentine’s Day! So unexpected… They’re just great kids and I love them so much and the computer is pretty cool too.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day, Happy, Happy to all of you!
If you celebrate it, I hope you’re having fun. If you don’t, hey, chocolate goes on sale tomorrow!
Also, here’s a pic of a random Valentine’s couple.
Feel the loooove! Not just today but always!
MIMI’S QUOTE FOR THE DAY
It really does!
PS – I gave up Facebook and Instagram for Lent.
Seriously, it’s incredibly difficult to go off track when you’re promising God.
Also, to those who part take and celebrate, have a blessed season of Lent.
