The week in review

I’m embarrassed to admit how long I stared at my blood pressure meds wondering why on earth the packet would say to take it NOW.

To recap:

There’s another headless bunny on the back doorstep. I’ve nearly stepped in it several times today.

Icecream is still not one word.

I’m pretty sure we have rooklets. I watched her for a long time this afternoon and she fidgeted. She once left the nest for a few minutes and then came back, probably feeding the little peckerheads (when she’s incubating, the father keeps her fed, Wikipedia tells me).

The chickens had another blissy day in the sun, though it all changes for the weekend, alas. Showers both days. (I hope it clears a little while at night; the Lyrid meteor showers peak this weekend).

And I have managed to skate through another week on the leanest of content. Story of my life, really. Good weekend, everyone!

Would someone please choose Joanne Woodward in The Celebrity Dead Pool! She is in hospice home care and near death from Alzheimer’s!

If supposedly educated people can write and say “would of” you can write icecream.

They’re certainly on my hit list, Anon. Along with people who will insist on saying ‘bored of’.

It’s funny how the brain misinterprets obvious things sometimes. For several years I drove past a little local Tex-Mex restaurant a couple times a week and often puzzled over the name: why would a Swede put his name on a Tex-Mex place? In fact why would a Swede ever open such a restaurant? Not much call for Swedish meatballs I decided so you sell the food people want.

And that’s how old Ole came to open Ole’s restaurant.

I wish I was making this up….

Hehee, I thought the same thing when I opened your blerg, “How does that blister pack know what time it is?”.

Also, bored with? Yes?

I’m just marveling that you get the convenience of blister packs! Hubby served our nation for 20 years. I get an email every so often “hello! Do you want us to send you your meds?” If I say yes then I get an enormous jar. I have damn near 2 years worth of meds now…not necessarily a bad thing…but then I have to sit and fill a pill pack. This is somewhat convenient with the injectable meds I take as those are a stone bitch to acquire if we’re on the road. But BLISTER PACKS!

We had a blood pressure medication crisis this past week – the stuff I have been taking for 25 years (CO-DIOVAN) is unavailable due to factory issues. What. The. Hell?

Luckily my physician had a replacement recommendation that seems to be working . . . so far.

BTW: Didn’t LavenderGirl win the Dead Pool with Chuck Morris (and son)? Or was one of the rules violated?

Also – can’t wait for the Coronation. Prince Harry is going to be there without Meghan? And the royals are letting out the breaths they have been holding for a while? Not so fast, I get the terrible feeling that Meghan and Harry have something diabolical planned. I hope it’s televised.

Ex Princess Bratty McTrailertrash has announced the previous reasons she’s not attending the Coronation to which she was probably not invited were NOT the reasons. She revealed it in fact had to do with the notorious discussion of her child’s possible skin color, and how she personally communicated with the future monarch and found his response not acceptable after she outed the guilty royal who committed said Holocaust level social blunder.

If anyone thought she was going to stand quietly out of the spotlight you probably also believe Brandon is the best President ever.

And the phrase “I could care less” is one that clearly doesn’t mean what some people think it means.
But remember, we’re old grammar NAZI’s, and stupid boomers.

New Death Pool?
The much-admired Australian comedian Barry Humphries has died aged 89. He was a very clever man. The characters he created were grotesque (Dame Edna, Sir Les Patterson, Barry McKenzie) but in private life he was greatly respected as an author, poet, fine art collector and accomplished painter. We shall miss him.

@Carl Moonie Ponds has lost its most (and only) acclaimed citizen. Farewell Bazza *waves gladdies*

Yes, I will absolutely accept Barry Humphries as a win. New Dead Pool.
