Thursday This n That

Ugh.  I slept late again.  Of course, late for me is after 6am.  But it throws off my morning, hence this post getting written after 7:30.  And posted after 8.  Derp.

I hit the Wallyworld yesterday.  Actually, I went down to get feed for the deer, but since I was in town, I figured it would be good to go to the store, too.  Meh.  Anyway, as I was walking from my car to the store, I heard someone shout 'Hey, where's your mask?  Put your mask on.'  It was in my hand so I held it up and waved it.  Then I noticed the person shouting was talking to a friend of his.  :shrug:  You never know.  I put the damned thing on before I got to the door, but I'll be damned if I'll walk out in the open air with the thing on.

Speaking of the 'rona, Missouri's governor and his wife tested positive.  I wish them both a speedy recovery.  Some people on FB were laughing about it, because he's been very 'anti-chaos crap', calling it Karma.  Assholes abound.  I expect both he and his wife will weather through it and come out the other side no worse for wear.  Sort of like Tom Hanks and his wife did.  

Yesterday was the anniversary of the release of George Strait's 'All My Exes Live in Texas'.  And now that song is stuck in my head.  You're welcome.  And sorry.

Having that song stuck in my head reminds me of the summer I spent hanging out at a country/western bar.  My brother and his wife were regulars and they took me there for my 21st birthday.  The rest of the summer just went along that route until I went back to college.  One of these days I should scan and post the photos of that summer, with my semi-mullet-esque hairstyle, drunk off my ass.  Unfortunately, I have a lot of 'drunk off my ass' photos from over the years.

Other than a couple sips of beer while I'm making bratwursts (and nine times out of ten, that was near-beer), I haven't had a drink since back in CO... Eight years?  For the life of me, I can't imagine why I ever drank.  

I feel the same way about football now.  For the life of me, I can't imagine why I was ever so into football.  Cold turkey now for... I think this is the third season I haven't watched.  Not even a sip or two.  ;o)

Oh, yeah, when I was at Wallyworld, I picked up a bag of Granny Smith apples.  Romanian Apple Cake, here I come!  You know, once I get off my butt and prep the apples.  ;o)

What's on your this n that today?


  1. Today I'll be dad-sitting. Tomorrow I'll be dad-sitting. Yesterday and Tuesday I went dad-sitting. (Monday we went shopping.) No wonder I'm not getting much done. Too many (thankfully minor) family emergencies.

    I bought an Envy apple on Monday, just to try it out. (Besides, it was on sale.) Delicious!

    I got way-too-drunk a couple of times when I was young, and I couldn't understand the appeal. Too much of a control freak, I think. Now that I'm on meds I can't even have a glass of wine. Whine, whine. ;-)

  2. I like that song.

    The blue jays are out and fussing this morning. The ferals must be prowling around. Speaking of, both Smudge and Smidgen were around this morning when I fed, along with mom, Hi-Jinx, Shylock, and BeeGee. And speaking of, still trying to find gushy food that Loki likes. He's soooo skinny. He eats his kibble but I feel like he deserves some gushy food too. Silly cat.

    Big news this morning was an explosion of currently undetermined origin that took down a big house out in a small rural neighborhood. Teenage girl died, dad, mom, and brother are all at the hospital. The news media and the FD spokesman are all stupid. I made the mistake of going to the station's FB page to supply the information the needed regarding possible investigative agencies and the trolls were out saying terrible things about the family and the situation. Asshats. I hate FB.

    I'm making slow progress on NIGHT WISH, but it's progress. Sadly (not really) I'm losing words because some scenes originally written aren't going to work so I'm moving them to the unused/future use folder. No words go to waste but since this books should be around 50K, not 60+, s'all good. Also, it makes it look like I'm closer to finishing. LOL

    The AC is off and the windows open. Woke up sneezing. Thanks ragweed.

    Speaking of open windows, the faucet outside my office window is leaking. I've tried tightening it with a wrench plus tightening the screw holding the handle on. Still leaking. I need to figure out how to fix that. Soon. Driving me a little crazy. Yeah, yeah, short trip. LOL

    Not much else going on in my world. Later, tater.
