Virtually there (via robots)

Sure, they laughed when it showed up on “The Big Bang Theory,” in 2012. But who’s laughing now? In “The Cruciferous Vegetable” episode, Sheldon  decided he needs to  extend his lifespan, and the best way to stay healthy was to stay at home, away from the risks of everyday life and any stray viruses, etc.…

Color me desperate

Should I or shouldn’t I? I couldn’t/can’t stand looking at myself in the mirror anymore.  My hair needs not just to be cut, but it’s turned all manner of  trashy orange  shades, as it is wont to do. All I can think of is that photo I saw at Belle’s grooming salon, an image of a…

BOMB IT AWAY

ANOTHER EPIDEM-IDEA: Scientists gave us the flea bomb to get rid of the nasty pests in our homes. They gave us the neutron bomb to get rid of the nasty people on our planet. So how about scientists  put their efforts into something similar in this situation. How about a FLU-TRON bomb. Like “War of…

Shelter for a storm

It rained.  LOUD. Don’t you just LOVE loud rain? Anyway, I’d put up my handy-dandy $59.95 Ozark Trail 4-Person Instant Dome Tent (see above) a couple of days ago, so i’d have a place to vacation. I bought the thing probably eight years ago, and I can put it up by myself in less than five…

A picture’s worth more now

My phone camera was full up. Not one … more … photo, it said, digging in its little android  data heels,  until you get rid of some. Yeah, annoying. But again in these times, the pause and reset button was a lesson for which i can now be grateful. I started scrolling Images flashed before…

Bad hair rising

Can we talk hair for a minute? My hair. It’s … it’s … God, how can I describe it? OK (she typed, closing her eyes for strength):  It’s Donald Trump color, in a Rod Stewart shag. I know. I know. Kill me now. Stick hot pencils in my eyes. I knew this would happen, I…

The Dr. makes zoom calls

Wasn’t sure I should go into what could be the eye of a hurricane — a Great Big Crystal Run Healthcare Facility — to see my asthma doc. After all, isn’t this where people with COVID go? Anyway, they’ve set it up like my veterinarian did weeks ago: Sit in your car, they’ll come get…
