Thoughts for our friends abroad — It’s hard to focus on a humor blog when the world is crashing. I’m having a hard time getting my head around this stuff. How does killing concert goers or diners or other “soft targets” (that’s a new term for me) further a cause? I’ll never get it. My heart goes out to France and all the other countries whose attacks may not get the same news coverage.
A new love – This week I cashed in the last of my 2014 Christmas gifts – a full-body massage (no, not an erotic one, just an old lady sore muscle kind). We have a wonderful person who comes to the home so there is no “getting up, dressed and going home” (sounds like dating doesn’t it?). Afterward you’re so relaxed that you are not sure your limbs are still connected. It was glorious!
Can I sleep through this week? – It’s going to be brutal. I have a two-cat veterinarian appointment at 8 a.m. on Monday. You are wondering what I was thinking aren’t you? At the time I made the appointment catching my one cat was easiest when I fed her breakfast. However, since then she won’t let me near her any time of the day. The damn cat is psychic. I have no idea how I will pull this off.
An apt follow-up – Then to make my week perfect, I have to call Medicare. I have to book a whole day. If I’m lucky they will let me leave a message for call back (then I have to hang around and be available). If I’m not lucky that queue will be full and I’ll have to keep calling back. Sigh!
Cup-gate — As a Starbucks regular the whole cup thing has me laughing. Seriously people, it’s a cup! Does it matter if a company choses to make it plain or put a snowflake on it. I don’t remember snowflakes being in the bible. Ellen DeGeneres has the best snip I’ve seen on it. I tried to embed it here but WordPress and YouTube must have had a falling out. (You know how dating is…) You can check it out here. It’s seriously funny!
On a more positive note – The bird traffic on my feeders has slipped. I finally put on my CSI hat to investigate (I look smashing in it!). I took the feeder apart to find a thick layer of hard goop covering some of the food holes. We had some heavy rains. The seed must have gotten wet and cemented together so the birds couldn’t get at them. All is good now. The smorgasbord is open for business.
So how was your week?
