As much as I love Dolly, I flippin' HATE this song, so your filk actually helps me. So thanks!

But boy does my arm hurt!

Yeah, my shingles shots (especially the first one) felt a lot like a tetanus shot, arm-pain-wise.

That does sound awesome, David. Enjoy, all!

That does not sound delightful, -t. Hope it returns to normal soon.

Lunch with friends, yay, Laura.

Have a couple friends over for a WFJ day (work from Jen's), and we took the one out for a b-day lunch. This is the crew I'm going to the beach with end of October for a WFB (work from beach) week.

That's about it from here. Rain cleared up just in time for lunch, which was great.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

Despite the rain, I managed to get Mr. S to school at 8. He actually wanted us to leave earlier, but I hadn't finished my breakfast yet. I'm glad he likes his school.

Is it just me, or did anybody else have a quick vision of -t telling us she just flew in from Miami?

I’m responsible for my own happiness? I can’t even be responsible for my own breakfast! (Bojack Horseman)

Come to find out my GODDAMNED SISTER who has been WORKING IN HER OFFICE this WHOLE TIME while TAKING CARE OF OUR FATHER WITH COPD DID NOT GET FUCKING VACCINATED. Neither did my niece who also works full time but lives with Dad and helps take care of him.


Ugh, Cashmere, I'm so sorry about this bullshit. Thinking of your dad... and get better soon!

"Against all evidence, I keep thinking the assholes are outliers." - James Holden

In I can apparently still be surprised news, the wackadoodle Cyber Ninjas audit in Arizona results in more votes for Biden and confirms his victory. Did not see that one coming.

So I have mentioned that I am going to Owasco Lake to visit a friend I haven't seen in about 60 years, along with my sister and another old neighbor. The other friend is my oldest friend, as she lived two houses away and our mothers were pregnant at the same time. The friend we are visiting lived across the street but moved a couple of hours away when we were children. Our parents remained friends. The upside of FB is that I have kept in contact with these women.

So, now last minute I need help!! I didn't realize until today that it is her birthday today and we see her tomorrow. My other friend's birthday was earlier this month. We are all the same age. I want to bring her something, in general, because of visiting, and now more so because of her birthday. At our age we don't need more stuff. I am at a loss.

Thinking more and scrolling through her pictures I remember how artsy she is and into antiques, and cooking, and books, and so forth. I'm going to stop by an antique place up here and see if I find something that inspires me. She often posts pictures of lovely place settings with her culinary creations.
