That’s the way we all became…

I just hosted a really big Zoom meeting. Well, it was twenty people, but that’s really big meeting when most of the participants are elderly technophobes. I was mutin’ microphones like a bastiche. I think the power went to my head.

I’m exhausted.

Many years ago, on a forum for arguing about politics, someone out of the blue informed me that he pictured me in his mind looking exactly like Ann B. Davis. If you’re wondering which one am I.

I’ve never been sure how I felt about that.

Ann B. Davis has a nice smile, so Ms. Weasel, if you can smile like she does, you are good.

I wandered into the room where our leader was hosting said meeting. She oozes all the bonhomie, charm and sincerity of Saul Goodman hosting a bingo session.

It is positively chilling.

Proof that The Elders have taken over the internet and are happy with not interacting with the young ‘uns, at all:

No one has yet asked the source of the matrix of photos.

Early on in this pandemic nonsense- early April- I hosted a virtual happy hour with about 25 of our friends. At that time, myself and 1 friend’s wife were the only ones working. 99.9% of our friends were unemployed at that time. I vowed not to do that again because it was so effing depressing. Fast forward 5 months, I’m now living in sunny Florida and decided to host another happy hour. Our friend’s wife is now the only person working. All our friends remain unemployed. I’m drinking tonight because 1) I’m retired and I can and 2) happy hour was less than happy again. I won’t do that shit again any time soon.

Oh! I see. Cindy, she dead. I’m sure you don’t look at all like her then!

And ExpressoBold:
Why would I want to interact with people who think setting fire to buildings is merely a “peaceful form of protest?”

A few weeks ago there was an email conversation among my extended family discussing holding some video conference call or a virtual game night or something, and seeking suggestions. I silently panicked through the first 3 or 4 even worse idea replies before I figured out no one was actually going to step up to decide anything.

don’t forget the Dead Pool…we wouldn’t want to diss the memory of RGB by not celebrating her demise with a new pool…

Durned? Susan Olsen (Cindy) doesn’t appear to be dead. Where’d you get that idea?

I read it on the internet next to her ‘current’ photo.
So it HAS to be true, right?
I mean, I didn’t check around any place that could be relied on or anything. I saw it one place and you just know they’re not allowed to write that on the internet if it’s not true!

I guess I could have checked it on a fact checking site, but I was thinking they might rate it “mostly false”.

Now, on to Dead Pool! Come on Hillary!

Yes, Dead Pool queued and ready to drop. Sorry, I should have posted that last night.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
