I’m late, and I’m sorry. I wrote a whole post, and then WordPress glitched, and the gremlins deleted every word forever. Now my thoughts are scattered. Carrie Fisher was like a goddess who made fun of you if you worshipped her. My friends smirk at each other every time I mention I’m in a band. Heh. I can handle the truth, but I prefer to whine a bit while I do it (slowly.) I didn’t share anything from my study of Dolly Parton because she values her privacy. (See: nunya.)
I can tell you this: I love her. (This is where you act surprised, and proclaim, ditto.) 🤭 I’m saving Curb Your Enthusiasm for a time when I need it. I love knowing it’s there. It allows me to risk trying new stuff, even if I suspect it will result in being stapled to the floor. (I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one.) I’m having so much fun leveling up to 120 in Warcraft. Yesterday I accidentally walked in the path of an elite monster two levels higher than me.
Picture it. Sicily, 1922: the battle of my toon’s life began. It took an excruciatingly long time, but I survived, and the monster did not. I’m a tank, which means if I keep my cool, I’m tough to kill. (It’s a crapshoot.) The reward was junk, worth like 15 silver. (Blizzard is hilarious.) Then, while I was standing there laughing about the insulting loot, it happened again. The monster had a freaking sibling. I ran away and lived to tell this tale. It chased me for a ridic long time, though. Blizzard. 🤭
M said our safe word the other day, which means freeze, you’re hurting me. (It’s usually a case of playing too fast and loose with words, requiring a break to think about why you’re an asshole right now.) I was out of balance. It happens. I zoom in on a single area and get my geek on, then neglect other things (because time has us all in a headlock.) Whoops. I fixed it. I had the urge to punch someone in the face earlier. It surprised me because the trigger was someone from Sioux Falls talking shit about Sioux Falls.
First of all, what the hell? How can you know Sioux Falls and not love it? Who hurt you? Of course, my inner adult insisted it was a fix-your-face-and-walk-away situation. (‘Sup, Midwesterners? ✌🏽) But I’m still a little irked. I’m pretty sure there’s a law that states if you insult Sioux Falls as an insider, it best be funny, yo. Breaking it all willy nilly might get you face-punched by a local. (We all have failed-at-adulting days.) What?
Issa Rae was on The Read TV show on Friday. Is it ist for me to say she’s breathtakingly beautiful? I’m putting an Issa Rae not-in-the-same-room restraining order on myself because there’s no way I could be in her presence without staring and not blinking (until someone tells me to snap out of it.) Heh. So anyway, she’s fabulous. I also enjoyed the four wardrobe changes in a single episode — logistics flex, alone. 🤭 I’m off to watch it again (and feel incredibly proud of other people’s kids.) 💜✌🏽
