I just bought a teach-yourself-Spanish audio course, and I’m already 90% sure I will never get round to listening to it.

I scored an appointment for first COVID vaccination. The website crashed all day Tuesday night but Wednesday at 5AM I was able to get an appointment, albeit two counties away.

My partner says he wants to watch something new on TV
But when I try a new show, he asks constant questions (i.e. Who is that? Where are they? Why are they doing that?)
And if I can't answer all his questions (what am I psychic?) or if he's not captivated after the first 10 - 15 minutes, we usually have to stop watching

I just looked up Johnny Mathis and it turns out he's still alive.

Call Me Kat Mayim Bialik stars as a 39-year-old woman who decides to use the money her parents had been saving for her wedding to open a cat-themed cafe.
"I'd like a tuna salad sandwich with a side of cat hair, please."

I find it so much easier to pretend to care about my coworkers lives over the telephone:
"How nice for you."
"Awwh, how sad for you."

I tire of the "Armie Hammer" DL troll
especially now his Twitter scandal has hit the mainstream media
|by Anonymous||reply 9||Last Thursday at 5:32 PM|
I agree, R9. I'm continually whelmed by the number of new Armie Hammer threads on DL. He seems to have become the new Meghan Markle.

My apologies to the OP of the last thread. I didn’t mean to step on any toes, but you were cutting it pretty close. Feel free to start a new thread and abandon this one. I’m quite used to being the OP of abandoned threads.

I got a Christmas card in the mail today. It was postmarked Dec. 14. It took exactly one month to get from the Boston area to the D.C. area.

Goodness, R11, I wasn't at all offended that you created a new thread. I'm not the least bit proprietary about such things. The only reason I created the previous thread was because no one else had. I was hoping someone else would, but when it didn't happen, I went ahead and did it myself.

How refreshing. Some people get quite pissy about such things.

It’s 10pm on a Friday night and rather than watch a show, I’ve been watching the screen saver on my Apple TV for half an hour. I think I’ll go to bed.

After living in 5 houses I have never replaced a toilet, just used what was in the house already.
But this week I replaced my home's two toilets with two new, snazzy dual-flush, soft-close-lid toilets.
A-N-D I replaced them with the help of a friend who knew how -- no plumber needed!
I feel so butch.

My 24-hour ban has ended at last. That was rough.

What, exactly, did you ban, R27? You don't have to tell us if the information might whelm us.

R27, R28 et al. I thought #27 was referring to 24-hour Ban roll on deodorant (I don't know if they even make such a thing). And that he'd run out of his stock. Back to being underwhelmed.

I’m. In bed, but haven’t had dinner yet. I might order some pasta with veal to be delivered, but need to decide within the next 20 minutes or the place will be closed. I’m whelmed.

On my walk this afternoon I saw a city bus with a banner on the side advertising job openings for daffodil pickers. I had never really thought of this career path before. I spent the next few minutes trying to imagine the job interview for a daffodil picker.
‘So, why do you want to pick daffodils?’
‘What are your core competencies surrounding daffodil picking?’
‘How do you see the key deliverables for a daffodil picker?’
‘What type of flower do you see yourself picking five years from now?’
But the thought of work soon whelmed me, and I had to sit down for a spell.

R20 I like Cheez-its in tomato soup. They're fun to watch floating around like little pillows and they taste good but not too whelming.

R3 To combat my boredom and take advantage of my downtime I bought an electric keyboard, adjustable stand, headphones and lesson plans. I know nothing about music except that I enjoy listening to it. I was not drunk when I made these purchases two months ago. If I can gather the energy, I plan to list all of it on e-bay this afternoon.

No, r37, I didn’t order the veal. I got out of bed and made pasta with tomato pesto and pan fried some sea bass (which don’t go together at all) at 10 pm, because that’s the kind of weird shit I have begun to do during lockdown.

My recent delivery of Misfit Vegetables had wilted bok choy . I guess I’ll have to pick up the pieces and move forward. My stir fry just won’t be the same. Why now? Why me?

I change my clothes four times a day.
Pyjamas to heavy clothes in the morning. Changing to light-weight clothes mid morning.
Changing to heavy clothes mid-afternoon. Then into pyjamas at night.
It gets more complicated when I do any exercise.

R43, my thoughts are with you at this difficult time.

I try to get dressed in the morning. Sometimes I succeed. Other days, I stagger to my desk and start work in my pyjamas. Tomorrow is going to be one of those days, I think.

I was sucked into a bad Richard Bach rabbit hole yesterday. “Jonathan Livingston Seagull” and “Illusions” filled every junk shop reading section when I was a kid.
This morning I’m stirring in the shitshow that is “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.” I’m pretty sure she dies.
