2020 is Here. When Did That Happen?

Somehow, I let an entire year go by without blogging.  I had ideas, and I meant to get them down, but my computer seemed so far away.  Life has a way of slipping by you when you're doing something else, I guess.  I'll try to pay more attention this year.

In the meantime, the Orange Dude continues his aggravating destruction of our country.  I generally am not a political type, but how can normally intelligent people not see what is happening?  I know maybe one-tenth of what the lawyers and others know, and even I can see that something is fishy. It is really difficult for me not to be extremely rude to people who are rabid Trumpies, but I make the effort.  I'm trying to be a nicer person, remember?


I worked with an elementary student this week.  He informed me that he had made up a joke, and I was game to listen. 

Kid:  "What happened when the bear died?"

Me:  "I don't know. What happened?"

Kid:  "He was BEAR-ied!" 

I laughed. I have always been a fan of word-play, and that was pretty good. 


I am just going to say it:  I like watching true crime. I'm listening to Snapped right now.  I seem to spend a whole bunch of time, while watching these shows, criticizing the people in the books and shows. 

"You cut up a body and left it RIGHT next to the roadside?  ARE YOU STUPID?" 

I am not sure when I started to do that, but I want to assure others that I have never engaged in any such shenanigans.  That I know of.  I don't think that I have an evil twin.


The Bloggess is opening a bookstore in my town.  I'm very excited, because, books.  Now I just have to find someone to go with me.  I love bookstores, but they tend to suck me in to their embrace.  I would probably live in one if I could figure out where to put all of my stuff.  And if there was a kitchen.  And a shower.  Maybe a cat or three.


That's it for now.  More later. Everyone have a wonderful week!


  1. hey! I remember you, and I want to go to the bookstore with you!

  2. I also got away for a while. Slowing trying to work my way back in. IT's good for the mind, yes? Good to see you back. Sadly we are down to just B&N here, we had a small mom and pop, but when the mall closed down it went with it. Sad.

  3. Being nice is on my list of goals this year, but I completely agree that it's difficult in this orange person time.
    Kid jokes are the best.
    There's a fabulous used book store in Fayetteville, Arkansas, that is a narrow but a city block long, with rooms added on over the years and I could stay in there for DAYS.
    Three words for you: My Favorite Murder. Podcast. I can't get enough of it!
