The New Normal

I recently noticed the subtle changes around my home because of the New Normal.

When I come home this is where I put my keys and Masks I use during the week.  I have other masks for around the house.

I went outside to try and see the Blue Angels safely.  Alas, I wasn’t in the flight path so sadness.  Gloves and masks rule the day.  Someone please explain this to VP Mike Pence who hates Americans and only cares that he can get a Covid19 test when ever he wants.  American citizen do not have such luxuries.  Insert eye roll here!

 

 

Interesting Flashback and the New Normal

So I was reading over my blog post from 1/2/20 about the Roaring 20’s.  What struck me first reading it was “Did Karma just say Hold my Beer?”.  Yet, here we are.

The President yesterday suggested a possible treatment for Covid-19 might be to inject disinfectants under the skin or standing in hot sunlight.

The MAGA protestors who want “control over their own bodies” (The Irony is lost on them) think that the Scientist are liars and believe only what Trump and Fox News feeds them.  In short they think this is all a hoax.  As of today, more than 50,000 dead Americans would disagree with the uneducated sheep.

This is how I shop now.  Gloved, Masked and 20 at a time.  Then I get to disinfect my groceries when I get home.  This is all right before I get into the shower and have a good “Silkwood” scrub down.

I believe in science and common sense.  I hope you too!

Sheltering-in-Place Activities

I thought I would have so much more time to read during Shelter-in-Place.  It turns out not so much.  All those projects I was ignoring (like the crap piled on the Dining room table) apparently were taunting me to finished them.  So I’ve been doing those things.

Really, I would prefer to read instead!

I was also doing photo shoots with my action figures, HA HA HA!

Area 51: Save The Aliens

Apparently 1 million people are planning on storming the AREA 51 base in New Mexico.  I can only assume it’s to free the aliens.  I saw Independence Day so I totally understand.

I’m a big fan of Aliens but I wonder why in all of the Galaxies they would waste their time on coming to the US.  Humans are really stupid.   Why not seek out a race of beings that don’t start every stupid thing they do with…hold my beer.

I’ve always wanted an alien.  So last vacation I found this alien in Cape May.  Richie the V is fun.  Not like those Independence Day aliens.  Oh and he’s not real, he’s a toy.  I’m an over grown child so, you know, I like toys.

If I were an Alien I would skip this planet and head to one where the inhabitants weren’t so stupid, js.

In the mean time…let’s save the Aliens of AREA: 51!

Everything Is Blurry

It’s okay that I’ve been suffering with extreme eye strain, right?  I’m not alarmed because I’ve got an eye doctor’s appointment at the end of the month.  It’s been a cross between using the computer and reading small print.  It’s rather annoying.

I’ve taken on reading “IT” by Stephen King this summer.  I hate clowns more than I hate mosquitoes so that should say something about me.  It’s been a really good read but the print is small.  The book’s size is also overwhelming, 1098 pages.  Add it that I’ve been having nightmares from it makes this challenging on another level.  I can’t read it before bed.  Yup, it’s freaking me out that much.

My bedtime reading is Eileen Fulton’s “As My World Still Turns”.  I miss the old guard soaps that used to grace the airwaves.  There are only 4 left on the television anymore and that saddens me 😦

I miss Erica and Jackson from All My Children and Lucinda and Kim and Bob from As The World Turns and of course I miss Reva from Guiding Light.  So I picked this non-scary book to get me through my night time reading.

It’s been filled with anecdotes of Ms. Fulton’s rise to fame on As The World Turns as Lisa, the one time bad girl who became a friend to all.  No nightmares from this story.

IT is really good and I don’t like putting it down.  Not just because my paperback version has Tim Curry as Pennywise on the cover but because it’s a good read.  I also think knowing very little about the story has been good as well.

Everyone knows about Georgie and is floating boat but that’s pretty much the only party of the story I knew about.  I will never see the movies.  I do not like scary movies.  Even though I’ve seen some of them in my day I’m not particularly fond of them.

I looked at the pile of books at my bedside and beside my spot on the sofa and I’m overwhelmed by how many books I need to catch up on.  The pressure sometimes parallelizes me but I’m motoring on with high hopes!

My reading isn’t helping the eye strain blurriness at all.  Again, I motor on.

The summer has been so humid.  You would think I would be read more just to stay inside in the air conditioning, lol.  Oh well, Back to the grind.  Wish me luck!
