At some point, my purse became a walking pharmacy. Stomach upset, got a headache? I have you covered. Need bug spray or sunscreen, what about some lotion or hand sanitizer? I've got a snack, and something to freshen your breath.

When I had surgery a few years ago, I had a weight limit of 10 pounds for 3 months! Hubs said he needed to weigh my purse to make sure I could safely carry it. I thought he was joking, turns out it weighed 17 pounds!

A friend who used to be a chiropractor always weighed female patients' purses to show them just WHY their neck and shoulder ached. Men who carried their wallets in a back pocket had hip and back problems.

After a long morning of loading the POD, stuffing the car, cleaning, scrubbing, double-checking, all on very little sleep… we’re off! here we come.

loves these long road trips.

First night: Sacramento-ish.

Safe travels, and more importantly, a safer life ahead for all of you.

I married a guy from college who hated sports. Now, this same guy watches golf.☹️

@StillIRise1963

Could be worse. I married a guy who actually said "Sports is life" and watched any kind of sport any time. It's one of the reasons we got divorced and THE reason I haven't owned a TV for 25 years.

You'll be a packing genius once you're done with that one. The next one will be a breeze (it's also the time when you really wonder if you should take that box of old books or put them out on the street).

Used to be you had to be an alcoholic to strut this look. Now for only $800 you can wear “pee-stained” jeans. I weep for humanity.

Omfg. Our first Pods comes tomorrow.

To. Morrow!

We actually start packing up the moving Pod tomorrow!!

Did I mention it's tomorrow?

One more comes in a week, for the furniture. Tomorrow's is for the boxes.

If I'm not around much to post, you'll know why. 🇨🇦

So glad you went with PODs. It takes away so much angst. We used some of their POD people at the old house, but they were horrid. The ones we used at the new place were wonderful. Luck of the draw I guess. Good luck with the packing!

I hope Barron's "prior commitments" (he's 18 FFS!) include spending time with his Puerto Rican boyfriend and getting high.

a like button is some straight 1984 shit. it can mean "I like this thing," or "I like that you told me about this thing I dislike." when something can mean either yes or no, why have it? people either have their own personal rules, or adhere to a convention they know, or don't. why have it? what outcome is it for? what outcome does it achieve? why have it?

If Trump refuses to debate Biden, @teamBiden should make a one hour “debate” video where videos of Trump making his many bizarre policy statements are met with Biden responding from behind a podium.

I probably wouldn't watch a debate, but I would watch that. Warning, pedantry ahead: behind a lectern.

They've been warning us for decades, our Black, Gay and otherwise marginalized friends: When you vote, you're not voting for a candidate, you're voting for the Supreme Court. Up ticket, down ticket, it doesn't matter, cuz the chickens will come home to roost. And here we are. Here they are, ready to dismantle everything we thought was sacred, every protection being yanked away just because they can and it serves the Money Gods. We're just pixels in the big dystopian picture.

I am livid and scared. My daughter, a library board trustee in her city, is being targeted by the Moms for Stupidity and their minions, including Proud Boys. She is attacked in their RW rags, social media and AM radio. They film her. It's no secret where she lives, where my granddaughter lives. I admit that because it's happening to my own kid, I'm more inclined to say, get the hell out before you get hurt.

    I bought one of these when I broke my right arm because nothing should stand in the way of my home cooking. It's been very helpful, but it's wicked sharp and I'm not sure I can trust myself not to cut off a finger or two if my right hand, when it's able, tries to "help".

    I sure hope so. I'd like to continue using it.

    @helplessduck

    No cast, actually, which freaks me out. Just a sling, even though it's bone on bone. Too high up for a cast I guess. No, I simply haven't progressed enough that I can extend my arm away from my side. The fingers work pretty well, but I still can't type with them b/c my arm won't extend to the keyboard.

    I think I shall call her Lorena and use her on MAGAts, given the chance.

    @qurlyjoe

    I'll keep that in mind, but as I just told @helplessduck , I'm going to call her Lorena, and use it on MAGAts, given the chance and necessity.

    Yeah, my step dad was a meat cutter and had some super versions of those. They were literally chainmaille.

    Tuesday, April 16 🌸 🎂🎉🥳🎊🎈🎁

    1. Awoke to “Happy Birthday” texts & calls from family. So very grateful for twin sons, their loving wives & amazing children - & my 94 y/o sister who still thinks of me as a toddler. 🤣

    2. Grateful too for this quiet, peaceful life I’m so privileged to lead, my comfy casita, & my garden with blooms, birds & critters.

    3. Splurged & bought my very fave -halibut- for dinner!

    4. Bonus: Two mallards zoomed on a low pass through my yard yesterday like Blue Angels in their F/A-18s.
