Yesterday And Today

Yesterday I had Pet Pack, something I do on Sundays.....since a few years now. When I arrived at the location I found out that somebody had stolen the van (a large van at that) where the Potluck In The Park crew keeps their supplies. Like tables, canopies, ropes etc. They provide tables and a canopy for us as well since we (Pet Pack) are kind of an extension of them. So I had to turn around and go back to the store where we keep our supplies to get some tables. It rained on and off yesterday so we got rained on without a canopy but it is what it is. The less fortunate have no roof over their heads.
Our tables with cat and dog food.

Today I was hoping to see some meteors. I read that, "Astronomers at NASA told skywatchers to be on the lookout Monday night for the never-before-seen tau Herculids meteor shower, though they are not sure it will even happen." did not happen for me. I headed to the closest park and looked up. I stayed at the park for at least an hour scanning the sky but no meteors crossed my vision. Maybe others were luckier.

Then I had to go home to my bed and a slice of carrot cake. Soon sleep.

Society Is Diseased

Evening thoughts from my bed......
I would like a job from home, of course like so many others that do not want to waste preciuos time commuting back and forth to a place of employment.....a job that combines sipping on latte and writing while in bed. Maybe Elon has an available job that fits that description for me? Important....the job needs to include one daily latte, a laptop and my own bed. I am not willing to drive anywhere.

While getting groceries the other day, I saw this. I first thought it was a butt plug but then I realized it is something you use on citrus fruits. For some reason Portland dancers, some not all but too many in my opinion insist on cramming butt plugs into their behinds. I don't get it, there is nothing visually pleasing about that. Visually intriguing perhaps. I think I might get this citrus tool and bring it to one of the clubs I work at and leave it in the dressing room, maybe somebody will think it looks like something they want to try out. A wooden more natural style butt plug instead of the usual shiny sparkly ones that my eyes get assaulted with. Blergh.

During that same grocery trip I saw the cutest bag of coffee. My kind. Animals and mushrooms.

If somebody has missed it.....I think it is official by now. Staring straight into our faces everyday. Society is diseased. The senseless violence on a daily basis that people subject the innocent to is pure insanity. Thoughts and prayers do not work in case you did not know. Perhaps putting some thoughts into what can be done to make some serious changes.
I don't know what to say anymore. It is almost easier to just look past it. Sadly. This is the new normal now.
So let me tell you about my visit to the laundromat this evening instead. It was just me and a shirtless barefoot guy enjoying a cold one. As soon as I walked in he said, "What's shakin bacon and what's cooking good looking". I quickly told him that I was not in the mood to talk because I am on my period. Well that did not matter too much to him cause he said, "At least you are not pregnant".Ya.....good thing, I would never want to put an innocent child into this world I explained. A few minutes later he put on a hoodie, took his pants off and put another pair of pants fresh from the dryer on and while doing so I got to see the whole package. You of those visual treats one might get while at the laundromat. To clarify, I did not ask to see that. A bit later he needed help zipping up his backpack, which I helped him with. After that he decided to take a leak right outside the entry so I got lucky and got to see the package again. Good that I am not a pearl clutcher. A fun time is almost a guarantee at any random laundromat in Portland. Interesting for sure.
I actually looked into what it would take to own a laundromat a while back. I have some great ideas and my laundromat would be an immaculate, safe and fun place. But even taking over a laundromat takes a sizeable chunk of dough.
Perhaps Elon can sponsor me?
Touching on the situation in the world again is not that I am not caring and not sensitive to it. I just don't know what to do about it.

Waited And Waited

Since every full moon seems to be more spectacular than the last I feel compelled to not miss out on seeing the full moon rise in all its glory, although I usually do miss out most of the time . Like tonight's moon.....super flower blood moon total lunar eclipse. I just had to see that! So I drove up to Council Crest where I have watched the moon rise before. And I waited and waited and after an hour I gave up. City lights yes.....moon no. So I went home to the comfort of hot tea, carrot cupcakes and my couch. Maybe next time.

And if you waited and waited to hear from me here, yes I know I have not checked in for a while. Sorry! I was actually sick last week for about three, four days. I even took a COVID test. I happened to have four tests at home that were sent to me a while back and I finally got to use one of them, actually my first COVID test ever. Negative. But I did not feel too good for a few days. But back to normal now.

To try to feel better I got chicken soup even though I am a vegetarian. I tried to not eat any chicken pieces but I did have everything else.

What else have I been up to? Mostly stuff that I do not want to deal with. Boring things that I have to learn like contracts.
But one of my baristas for the last year decided to start dancing and is now at one of the clubs I am at. Mission accomplished! She has now joined the dark side and is forever ruined, her soul tainted and she has a terrible future ahead of her. There is her name next to mine.....Eve. She is doing great actually. So I am not worried.

The other day while at Trader Joe's I saw these wine bottles from this BFF pair, Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg. I bet when Snoop came out with Doggystyle (his first album) back in the early 90s he did not envision being BFFs with Martha Stewart one day. A great example of that you never know where life will take you. I actually used to have a crush on Snoop when that album came out, I thought he was SO cute.

And speaking of celebrity stuff since I am on the topic. Britney had a miscarriage. In fact many pregnancies end up in miscarriages, so it is nothing unusual. In this case I think it is a good thing. Judging from what I have seen coming from Britney lately I do not think she should have a baby. Or a dog and the cat she also got but since she has pets now she should mommy them and give them a good forever home. And she should concentrate on herself and her two existing children and refrain from posting weird naked pics of herself where she just looks confused and not fully together mentally. I have nothing against naked pictures as you might know.....but there is a difference between nudes and nudes. I even wonder if she really was pregnant?
Anyhooooooow.......besides this I am sitting here watching an episode of Dateline. Those Dateline episodes are also examples of that you never know how life might play out. The person you share your bed with might not be who you think it is.....sometimes it is definitely better to be alone. Or have pets, then you are never alone. Or friends. Or books. Alone is often a positive thing.
