COVID Can't Catch Me Now

Saturday, May 1, 2021

 I got my second dose of the vaccine today! So in two weeks once the juices settle, I'm fully protected.


I'm sure it'd feel better if I was a party girl, but I'm not a party girl. I'm a stay home and watch television and movies girl. Or a book girl. I do need to get back to back to reading, I've got a couple chapters left and I actually want to meet by reading challenge this year because I actually have a reasonable goal to hit and I'm falling behind. 


Anyways, woo-hoo!

I Miss My Music Box

Monday, April 26, 2021

My record player is amazing, because it's not just a record player. There's a CD player, a cassette deck, the radio, and bluetooth to play music from. All right there in that beautiful box.




I love playing my record collection on it. I've got Carole King's Tapestry, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, Paramore's After Laughter, Little Mix's Glory Days, Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. I. And many more. The albums that have no skips, can listen straight through and not having to constantly find the next track. 

When I play music from my music box, that is the only thing that I'm doing. I'm not reading a book or farting around on my phone. I am comfy and cozy, just listening to the music. To be able to just shut down like that, I can't do that when I'm playing music from my phone. It only happens with my record player, even if it's not a record and I'm just using the bluetooth to play from my phone. The music needs to be coming from my music box. 


Clips That Bring Me Joy, Vol. IV

These clips bring me joy, and maybe they can bring you some joy, too.

Earworm: Taylor Swifts' Fearless (Taylor's Version)

Saturday, April 10, 2021

 So the first of Taylor Swift's re-recorded albums has arrived, and I've got to say I'm excited about it. Fearless was a great album to begin with, so whatever the results of this experiment/getting back what's hers wouldn't be bad. But I was surprised at the result of Taylor's Version

Got My First Vaccine Dose!

 I got my first dose of the COVID vaccine this morning! (I got Pfizer.)


As soon as New York City lowered the age restriction from 30 to 16 on Tuesday, I was on the vaccine finder, trying to find an appointment for my first dose. And none were available. Every day I would check the vaccine finder and the Walgreen's app to find somewhere to get the shot. And then yesterday afternoon, a miracle happened. An appointment opened up at 9:35 the next morning. Victory! Now I'm not the only person in my immediate family to not get their first shot.




Should I Root for the Mets This Year?

Thursday, April 1, 2021

 Baseball is back, baby! But the Mets' game was postponed thanks to the Washington Nationals having COVID issues, so boo.


My question is, should I root for them? Last year when I started getting back into baseball during the postseason, I needed a team to root for and I chose the Dodgers. That turned out well for me. I like that team and they're fun to watch. I've heard there's hope this year for the Mets. We finally have an owner willing to spend money and make stuff happen. But I don't know. 


I'm gonna try to pay attention to the regular season this year and watch some games. We'll see where I land for my Mets or Dodgers fandom.

I Have Found My Spice Level and it's Popeye's Spicy Chicken

Monday, March 15, 2021

My spice and heat tolerance is about as low as can be. Just the hint of spice and heat, and it can turn my mouth into a fire pit. But, I've finally found a spicy food where I can actually enjoy the spice without experiencing pain and it is Popeye's spicy chicken.


Usually, I get mild. And then one day I was given spicy by mistake and did not notice until my first bite.  That was a surprise to my taste buds. But my mouth didn't turn to fire and tears weren't streaming down my face, so I carried on eating. And I liked it. When I was finished eating, I didn't feel the need to nearly drown myself with water or soda. I could just calmly carry on sipping my Coke and enjoy the flavor of the spice. 


I will not be going any higher on the Scoville scale, because that would surely end in the loss of my tongue.

The Cold is in My Bones

Sunday, March 7, 2021
It is still freezing in New York and I can't seem to get warm. Once the chill sets in, it is there. I feel it in my bones, constant and shaking. No matter how many layers I wear, the cold still seeps in. 

Hopefully this cold front will end soon, and the cold will be comfortable and not unbearable. Until then, I will be loading up on hot chocolates.

Waiting Brain

Tuesday, March 2, 2021

You know when you have to be somewhere at a specific time, your brain knows and leaves you thinking about it? If that happened a half an hour before, then that's fine. Good internal warning system. 


My waiting system starts hours in advance. 


If I have an appointment at noon, my brain starts getting ready for it as soon as I wake up. If I'm going out to dinner with the family, I need ample warning because my brain just can't process the spontaneity of a simple meal at a restaurant. 


I had to start getting up for my new job at 4:30 in the morning. My waiting brain started at nine the night before, and it wasn't just anxiety of starting a new job, I was waiting for 4:30 so I could get ready to leave. It keeps happening, too. It's not as bad as the first night, but the waiting for my alarm to go off starts when I'm getting ready to go to sleep, and then, once midnight passes, I wake up every hour on the hour until my alarm sounds. It's a real joy to get up in the morning.


If anyone else suffers from this condition, I need tips. 

I'm an Aquarius With a Rising This is Bullshit

Tuesday, February 23, 2021

Astrology is one of those things that I just don't understand how people believe in it. The human experience is so different for everybody that everybody born in the same month has the exact same character traits. I can disprove that notion real quick: I'm a twin, and we are very different people. And then with all the added rising and moon and whatever, it's just a caveat to explain why two people born in the month of February might be different.


(I do believe in jinxes. Because that is something that happens specifically to you. It is not prescribed, you are the one that tempted fate and she is coming for you. )
