Teh Squeaky Wheel
‘Bye, weekend; hello, Monday…ya bastid! 🙂
Congratters to you two on your NRA goodies. More than 500 pages of CA gun laws? Criminy! (Those really helped the folks in Gilroy, didn’t they?)
I’ve never understood women and baskets.
Nor I. We have a “basket o’ vitamins and supplements” in one cabinet and a “basket o’ basic first aid carp” in another. It’s so convenient…not! If I need, say, anti-itch cream:
1) Remove basket from cabinet and place on counter.
2) Root through basket for tubes of stuff; pull out all the wrong ones and place on counter.
3) Remove band-aids, pain relievers, various other nostrums and place on counter.
4) Finally locate and apply anti-itch cream.
5) Place all carp back in basket (which involves piling it in, as there’s too much stuff to place it neatly in teh basket).
6) Attempt to place basket -- which is now somehow slightly wider -- back in its now-a-tich-too-narrow place.
7) Rearrange other stuff in cabinet to accommodate basket; re-stow basket.
8) At some point in future, get interrogated about why [sought item] isn’t conveniently located on top of carp piled into basket or at front of shelf where it was carefully placed by, um, others.
9) Roll eyes while making appropriate sympathetic noises. 😉
Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa!
We have a basket of pain relievers, vitamins, and other OTC medications in a basket in the kitchen pantry. One simply opens the pantry cupboard door, slides out the drawer, locates the item one needs, then slides the drawer back in. Why, it’s almost like not having a basket! In fact, considering that there are many items located outside the basket in that drawer, it truly is like not having a basket.
OK, let’s run the score up.
We went to an Angels game tonight. The Angels previously swept the Dodgers -- arguably the best team in baseball at the moment, then lost 3 of 4 games against Baltimore -- the team with the worst record in baseball. Tonight they played the first of 3 games against Detroit -- another team with a lousy record -- and lost 7-2.
Oh, BTW, it’s my 60th birthday today and Mrs. Paddy surprised me by renting out a suite and inviting a bunch of my friends.
We got to the game a little bit earlier than normal -- traffic wasn’t as bad as usual -- and were wondering around when she just walked into one of the suites. I hadn’t a clue.
Yeah, they lost the game, but it was great seeing some people I haven’t seen in a while. I count myself very lucky.
Hope you had a good time, Paddy. Congrats on reaching the big 6.
Our governor talking about the Gilroy shooting. It’s long and mostly boring with nothing that you haven’t heard before, so don’t waste much of your time but watch his mannerisms and posturing -- he’s got it down pat.. I’m really surprised that he didn’t jump into the race this time out, but he’s running for POTUS in 2024 and he’s going to be tough to beat.
Real or not, pretty entertaining.
This was interesting. I have never heard or listened to this song or the singer/group so I was enjoying his reaction to it. Did not make me a fan but I could see the skill and talent in it. I understand the popularity better.
I am terribly ignorant of popular or modern music. I do surprise Elena on occasion, though. She popped her head through my door just this weekend and said “That’s MY music!”. Happens once in a while. We don’t share too much music and she is surprised when she hears me listening to something from her past. I think this was Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart.
