Hello. Welcome to another edition of “weekend?” or “just another random lump of weekdays?” It was OK. Nothing exciting. I mean, what do we expect to happen on weekends during a pandemic, anyway?
Henry had been on “vacation” the prior week, so I’m not sure if he was treating the weekend like his last chance to live it up before returning to work, or if it was more of a COUNTDOWN to returning to work, because that was A LOT of “at home time” with me and Chooch. He got a lot of work done on various projects (FINISHED NONE THOUGH) and that just kind of bled into the weekend.
I went with him to Lowe’s on Saturday, where he made me languish in what has to be a contender for the Most Boring Aisle in the World. Then I asked him what he needed these alleged “hooks & eyes” for and that just elevated my boredom to Snooze Level, my god.
But I guess he needed shit in order to hang up my giant Seoul subway sign (and by that I don’t mean “hang on the wall” but “hang from the basement rafters” because he’s not anywhere near finishing this bitch yet) which he got a moderate amount of work done on over his “vacation week.” Here is a video of him working on it Friday night while listening to 2nd generation Kpop (aka the best kpop):
Side note: if you’re ever like, “Aw, I really miss seeing people’s noses” during Covid Days, just go to Lowe’s. Lots of fucking dumbasses with their schnozzes hanging out of their masks. Fucking assholes.
I pretty much spend every day soapboxing about this bullshit country. It’s gonna be wild when I’m an old lady one day, telling my grandkids about the time selfish people in America cried like bitches over having to cover their big fat faces with a piece of fabric. FABRIC.
Assuming the anti-maskers don’t kill me first.
I’m pretty sure I spent a large portion of the weekend, when I wasn’t micromanaging Henry, ranting about Covid-19 and the stupidity of half the country. PLEASE STAY HOME FOR THANKSIVING!!! DO NOT BE SELFISH. I get it – some people are very close to their families (can’t relate) and not spending a holiday together feels like it could kill you but guess what, spending the holiday together ACTUALLY COULD KILL YOU OR THEM. I’m so glad that I generally don’t have holiday obligations and I truly do feel bad for those who do, but please be smart about this.
It stresses me out so much you guys that I have been having covid nightmares, such as Saturday night when I dreamt that I went to dinner at Bob Evans and they sat me at a table that was super close to another table, so I tried to move my table away and the people at the other table got super offended and then I suddenly had this lucid moment inside my dream where I realized that I was at a restaurant after I spent the last nine months preaching about how people shouldn’t eat in restaurants during the pandemic, and I could feel, inside my dream, the blood rushing to my face because OMG I’M A HYPOCRITE AND WHAT WILL MY INTERNET FRIENDS THINK OF ME NOW and also SERIOUSLY, I CHOSE BOB EVANS OF ALL PLACES??
Anytime I have ever eaten at Bob Evans, it’s looked like a nursing home field trip up in that piece.
Sunday was really dreary for most of the day, and then by late afternoon, it cleared up but a really scary windstorm kicked up and I started to Final Destination’ing the situation and decided it was time to retreat back to the house before a street sign became dislodged and decapitated us.
I don’t even know what else to say. I’m depressed. LOL, aren’t we all. I’m gonna slap myself in the face a few times and maybe squirt some whipped cream in my mouth until I gag. And then who knows maybe my next post will be more exciting. But I doubt it.
Here’s a new Taemin performance from his recent promotions. All I can say is thank god for Kpop because it’s really keeping me afloat these days.
I can’t even tell you how hard I relate to the whole people are idiots thing when it comes to Covid. I work in a grocery store and we very much enforce the mask mandate (I was told that I was part of the governor’s Nazi brigade a few days ago) and holy shit! People are fucking insane. We don’t even bother telling people to cover their noses because that would be all we were doing all day long. People try to drag me into conversations bagging on the restrictions and masks all day every day (I have no idea what it is abo3me that makes them think I’m a conspiracy theory nut job like them…) . And no one is going to follow the small gathering rule for Thanksgiving. I’m just fucking done and so over people (even more than usual).
* about me*
Ugh, I don’t envy you, Rebecca! That has got to be so maddening to see every day!
There was a tweet I saw way back when this started and I think about it all the time. To paraphrase, it was about how the first mistake made was to say “wear a mask to protect others.” It should have been worded “wear a mask to protect YOURSELF” since half of Americans are so freaking selfish.
I actually wrote off an old acquaintance recently because she’s anti-mask, anti-BLM, and pro-Trump (but she’s not racist, nooooooo). Anyway, it always blew my mind that she was anti-mask because she has SO MANY health issues and it’s like, “Dude, then stay the eff home because if anyone is going to get it and die, it’s going to be you.” I just don’t understand why so many people are blowing this off. It’s clearly not going away!
