Toddlers would have been easier

Phew. I hosted a Zoom meeting this evening for the elderly scholars who used to employ me. It was a trip.

I actually spent a fair amount of time later making a graphic of a Zoom meeting attended by Egyptian mummies, but I biffed it. It was mean and I always imagine the unlikely possibility of someone I know stumbling over my blog.

It has actually happened. Not often, thank goodness.

Uncle B had a dentist’s appointment today, which they attended in hazmat suits.

So my Monday has been fraught and *squints* it’s not even drinking time.

And guess who had to model for an Egyptian mummy?

She won’t do it again, mind you. Not once the spell has worn off and she’s changed back from a toad to a weasel.

It’s always drinking time. Say, have you ever tried those power boost protein drinks with vitamin supplements and a shot of rum added? Whiskey would work too.

Just a minute!

Day-drinking is all the rage in The Age of the Wuhan Flu (soon to be renamed “Kung Flu” by Presidential decree).

Stick to dry martinis and you should be alright, even to drive a rickety motorized bicycle. Does that thing still work?

“It’s 5:00 PM somewhere!” – everybody at one time or another.

“Used to employ” sounds kind of past tense ominous, I’ll admit I haven’t been paying close attention, but are you on the furlough?

I think about everyone who is going to be is back at werk here in North Carolina, judging by the traffic.

And when said individual stumbles across said blog? Remember the pigs in “Silence of the Lambs”? Like that but chickens.

We could use a little insensitivity in this oh so sensitive time. Although, I fail to see why Egyptian mummies on zoom would offend anyone other than ancient pharoahs.

Feynmangroupie is on to something. Mebbe you could just isolate one of the mummies to show us. Completely out of context from the setting in which you previously used it. We NEED a mummy …

Day drinking? On (real) Monday, we went to a nice little (Korean, I think) Sushi place for lunch, 2 of the three durnedsons and I, and son #3 mumbled about it being before noon and not ordering sake.

To which I replied, “why not, we’re unemployed, drinking before noon!” #2 son, Mr Security Clearance, abstained of course. But hot sake is a wonderful thing, so his loss!

And so today is a Monday Tuesday for me. I’ve completely lost track of the day of the week! It’s AWESOME!

You should create what you like Weasy! And then if anyone calls you on it, make some outlandish claim to being in an “oppressed” class that you just invented and accuse them of not caring and not being woke!

I take it no one had Steve Bing in the Celebrity Dead Pool…

Why would MS name its search engine “Bing?” Now this guy named Bing takes a header (presumably intentionally on his own) off a 50-story building. I know: correlation is not causation but I can’t even substantiate a correlation except for a Hillary/Podesta/pizza email. Anyhoo… conundrum.

He was worth over $500 million, you know?

Oh come on now, Deborah HH. If you really need a mummy, Who’s your daddy???
