May the 4th…

…be with you.

Happy Star Wards day y’all! I know there are bigger things happening in the world and country right now, but I need more processing time before writing about those. I have strong feelings about them – I just don’t think I can express them the way I want to yet. So for now, let’s talk Star Wars and in the importance of the fandom to so many. Personally, I enjoy Star Wars but it isn’t what I would call one of my big fandoms. That doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate the impact it has had on peoples lives. It inspires people to dream, even if it seems silly to others. It taught us we all have light and dark and can change. It highlights that light can’t exist without dark and vice versa. Most importantly, it’s never too late to do the right thing. ALSO that Leia was one of the only super bad ass useful characters in the series who didn’t run and hide at the first sign of trouble (cough cough Han and Luke). Adam Driver was one of the best castings. I wonder what would have happened in the story if Carrie Fisher hadn’t died. I don’t think Han was supposed to be Ben’s saving grace – always mean to be Leia. Life changes plans though and best we can do is make Space Mom proud. So let’s make Space Mom and all the strong women proud and fight the shit that’s happening right now to deny woman rights to our own bodies – but that’s for another post. Stay tuned…

Role Models In the Public Eye…

John Krasinski

If you know me, you know that John Krasinski is one of my all time biggest celebrity crushes. I went to see a scary movie (never do that) because he wrote, directed, and starred in it. His marriage with Emily Blunt is my goal in relationships. Obviously he was great as Jim in the office, but none of that matters in this particular selection. During all this crazy stuff he made a segment called ‘Some Good News’ to talk about the good that is still happening in the world. It made my laugh and cry (good cry). His new hero was a young girl who just completed chemo and he had her on the show. I needed some good news in my life so sincerely – Thank You John Krasinski for bringing it to me and everyone else who watched it. Spread the good.

Additionally, I love that the background was made by his girls.

Why are People Licking…

…weird things like toilet seats?

I have been seeing multiple weirdos posting videos of themselves licking super weird things – like toilet seats. WHY?! I mean the obvious answer is attention but is that really worth it? Is it a ploy to become some sort of weird influencer while most of what people can do is explore social media. But…I mean…under the best of conditions – why on Earth would you lick a toilet seat.

In other news – I donated blood today. This is something I do pretty regularly but it felt really good to do something productive with the extra time. Then I stopped at Costco to get the paper products that are hard to come by nowadays. I don’t want to be caught without toilet paper and no way to get it. When I arrived there was a long line but it moved quickly. It seems longer then it is because everyone has a cart. So I took a chance and got in the line. I got Charmin, Bounty paper towels, and Kleenex! I never thought I would be so happy to spend money on that stuff, but here we are. I am stocked on what I need and couldn’t be happier about that. It was a good way to spend part of my last okay paycheck and will hopefully see me through this pandemic. The people in line weren’t pushy. They weren’t friendly but not crazy either which is fine by me. I saw one of my volunteers while I was there which was nice and reminded me I once had a live and a job outside of this pandemic and gives me hope I will again soon. Maybe this Costco score was a good karma payback! Who knows.

Here’s to good karma…sorry this post wasn’t super exciting or emotional but that was my day and it was good. The world (and I) need every little piece of good available.
