Friday fun fact

Few things smell worse than a dog fart at 2am.

Older can be better

Let’s get the obvious out of the way. Older things are better because if you aren’t getting older, you’re dead. Case closed.

But this post isn’t about that, it’s about movies. The classics, no matter how you define them.

Case in point–a friend at work asked me to recommend some classic movies to her as she was really enjoying them on Netflix. I asked which ones she had watched–Breakfast Club, St. Elmo’s Fire, and Sixteen Candles.

It was a tough reset for my brain as to me Classic movies are from Hollywood’s Golden Age–the 1930s and 1940s. The universe got back at her when she overheard two kids talking about enjoying the new Disney movies but not to forget the classics like Moana.

Either way, the hubbinator have been seeking out the movies from the ’30s and ’40s such as The More the Merrier, Rendezvous, and Without Love.

Of course, this won’t stop us from binging Stranger Things this weekend.

Until next time, stay healthy.

I enjoy 2 cups of tea every morning. And I am a tea connoisseur and love to try new flavors and blends. I am also cheap and heavily influence by the lure of free shipping, so I order enough to keep a back-up to my back-up stash.

No, it’s not hoarding—it’s supporting small businesses.

But I digress.

Sometimes those choices are not as tasty as I had anticipated. Which leaves me with 29-49 tea bags of a blend that isn’t a delight to the senses.

Usually, I power through the flavor by adding it to my daily tea intake. 2 cups, 2 flavors. One is caffeinated and the other isn’t. One I love, the other I can drink.

Lately, tho, I’ve begun to despair of the less enjoyable tea ever being used up. And as I stated above, I’m cheap so I won’t be throwing it away.

So now, I must change up my routine. One that keeps me looking forward to mornings and my daily tea fix. Not quite sure what that will look like, but as I scientist I do know how to run an experiment. LOL

Until next time, stay healthy.

Today is a great day to be a dragon.

When it rains…

Is about the time you realize that your windshield wipers don’t work.

Yep, I went to turn on my wipers and all I heard was the dying heartbeat of the motor but no wiper motion on the driver’s side.

I thought,rightly, that the wiper may have become fused with the glass given the heat and months without rain or moisture. However, prying the wiper from the glass didn’t initiate any movement.

I then had my truck cleaned and blew out some of the leaves and twigs that had collected near the wiper motor. Still no joy.

Then I told the hubbinator who used canned air to spray out even more leaves and twigs then tighten a nut, and viola. The wipers worked.

Guess, sometimes all it takes is acknowledging you have a loose screw and tightening it. LOL.

Until next time, stay healthy.

Survival Mode–Puppy Style

I think our puppy is acting out how vicious and independent she is whenever we go on our walks.

By lunging and jumping, she manages to catch and eat anything that the wind blows including leaves and flowers, with the occasional bug thrown in. She’ll eat bugs and birds that have been flattened by passing cars, as well. Yes, this means, she will stand in the street and pick stuff off the street.

Guess, she likes to balance her veg with her protein.

She also fancies herself a great hunter and is willing to take on a passing car by chasing after it. Or attempting to chase after it. I do have her on a leash.

Her favorite watering hole is the muddy puddle in the park, where she can cool her feet by standing in the water she is lapping up.

Of course, I don’t think I’m in danger of her running away and living her best wild life. After all, recliners are not something you find in the wild.

Until next time, stay healthy.

The older I get

The younger I behave.

I now have a favorite mug and plate. What’s more, I get annoyed when someone else uses them.

Seriously, I may turn into a toddler and start biting. LOL

Until next time, stay healthy.

And stay away from my favorite mug and plate.

Have you heard…

I was watching something and they kept mentioning the term ASRM. ASRM stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Basically, it’s a pleasant sensation you experience while hearing a soft voice, whispering, or brushing.

I think of it as white noise.

Now, I know certain songs have the ability to amplify my creativity, so I tend to have playlists for certain books.

But, listening to the sound of the ocean just makes me need to pee.

So…I was a little skeptical and then I found this series of youtube videos by Early American. It is mostly cooking during America’s frontier time with very little speaking. It is in a word–relaxing.

Here’s one:

Either way, I’ve found a great way to destress at the end of the day. And no way, would I trade my appliances for such labor intensive cooking everyday.

Until next time, stay healthy.
