      Be happy and be well. Please be careful about Covid. Viral load matters for infection, spending hours in a house with people is a great way to get infected. Feel free to use comments to discuss topics unrelated to recent posts. I’m doing my annual fundraiser. If you like my writing and can afford to, […]

I had a mixed hour at the Y.

I had to share a lap lane with a guy in his late teens who wanted to own the water and consistently pushed me into the lane divider with his crazy kicks.

There was a woman with a kickboard in the next lane over who kept trying to get my attention. She remembered me from the last time I was there. I remembered her too. I remembered that she wouldn’t stop trying to get my attention.

I did 30 minutes of laps and 15 min in the therapy pool only to find that the women’s locker room was again filled with screaming toddlers. You know, I did my tours of duty. I’m so over the shrieking 2 year olds in the shower room echo chamber. Do men have to put up with that in their locker rooms??

I had worn my bathing suit under my jeans on the way there and discovered sfter my shower that my underwear were probably still laying on my bed at home. So I tried to wiggle into my white jeans all commando style in front of three other people who didn’t look away. {{why??}}

But all is well. I’m having mahi mahi fajitas. I so deserve this.

Imagine what it must be like to be a Trump voter and having to live with this reality:

Trump Gives Wife Beater Praise He Usually Reserves for Child Molesters and Nazis

At least Hillary never did anything to make me feel dirty by association. So, I guess it could always be worse.

  1. Are you kiddin’, RD?

    The Trumpanzees love their Hair Furor because he sticks up for Ratzis, wife-beaters, and pedophiles (Niles was probably engaging in projection in the previous thread).

    I suspect a majority of them come from my tribe.

    I don’t know how I managed to overcome tribal programming and think independently, but praise the Ascended Madoka for it.

    • We must be separated at birth IBW. I’m not like my family either though, praise the Flying Spaghetti Monster (May he touch you with his noodly appendage), most of my local extended family can’t stand Trump.

      • My mom despises Trump as well, and I expect the whole extended family is divided, because we just don’t talk politics at gatherings.

    • Good for you IBW, holding down the fort for us in the boonies. Unfortunately, even as a recent transplant, I have in my extended family, a trumpster. I don’t like it.

  2. Nerd humor: :mrgreen:

  3. From “The KGB Ate Our Votes” over on Wonkette:

    Trump’s tweet bemoaning the mistreatment of poor Rob Porter sounded like Dr Seuss:

    One fish, two fish
    Red fish, blue fish
    Accusations, one or two
    Some are old and
    Some are new
    Some are true
    And some are false
    A pussy grabbed
    A fist gets tossed
    It’s all the same to Mr Trump
    He’s sure that she deserved that thump
    Women need to know it’s true
    A Trump will grab a rump or two
    He has no couth
    He has no class
    He’s an unrepentant
    Despicable ass

  4. My legs are all achey. 😕
    In the right places but they still hurt.
