Vanity Fair napkins also BOGO. I got one package of the Everyday variety (2 ply,100 count) and one package of the Entertain variety (3 ply, 40 count). I use the 3-ply for guests. Not dinner guests as I use cloth napkins for dinner but for a casual lunch or cake and coffee type guests.

It’s fledgling season and I’m finding dead ones around my property. Happens every year. Some fall out of the nest too soon, some die because their mothers for some reason stop feeding them once they leave the nest. In some cases the mothers get killed by cars (especially robins as they are low fkyers’), cats, dogs or hawks. It’s so sad. Every year I have to tell myself it’s natural. There’s nothing I can do.

I was raking yesterday, then I was sweeping up pine straw. At least an hour. Today my right shoulder blade is in tremendous pain. More pain, many people have said, the likes of which nobody has ever seen before. If I move my arm the wrong way it’s agonizing. Tears in my eyes. I wish Dr Ronny Johnson was here to make my pain go away.

Anyway…I have a dr appointment tomorrow and am supposed to write out a list of my medication. Every time I try to lift my arm to look for a pen my arm shoots pain directly into my brain.

My dr appointment is for a lump in my elbow. My dr said it’s a lipoma but a dermatologist can’t remove it because it’s in my elbow. So I’ll see the sports dr, he’ll order a scan and I’ll have to wait for him to notify me it’s a lipoma. There’s no way insurance will cover it’s removal because it’s not painful and it doesn’t interfere with range of motion. I mean, I can say, “It hurts,” but he’ll know it doesn’t. He’s a goddamn dr who specializes in joints, cartilage and bone. I only want it taken out because it’s ugly. I lost weight so my arm skin is wrinkled now and the lipoma looks like Donald Trump’s neck vagina.

My sister found the pork rub too salty. She uses zero salt. Every day. (But she still eats lightly salted potato chips). After the third time she commented on how salty she found the rub I said well you use zero salt so any amount of salt would be too salty for you. I am now lying in bed.

I bought a kitchen wall clock that is supposed to have its time set by the Atomic Clock in Colorado, but it is not picking up the signal even though it is a new technology that is supposed to connect better.

The atomic clock website says one of its attennas is down until “late June.” I can set the clock to manual mode, but what’s the point of that? I can take it on faith that the clock will work when the antenna is fixed (assuming I remember to reset it) or I can return it.

When the clock arrived, 2 of the 3 tape seals were broken, indicating someone else had already purchased and returned the clock.

I’m annoyed.

I find it odd when adults refer to themselves in the diminutive.

A co-worker is named Kim. She is known as Kim. When she recounts stories about her life, stories no one wants to hear I might add, she refers to herself as "Kimmy". i.e. "My neighbors would be disappointed if Kimmy didn't bring brownies to the barbecue" or "Everyone knows Kimmy goes to the Strawberry Festival every year". If she helps someone in the office with a task she says "Kimmy to the rescue!".

Isn't referring to oneself in the third person a sign of some mental disorder?

Her voice is annoying but her method works and adding the cheese at the end and using residual heat to melt it is perfect.

There is tremendous waste, of course plus the food is tepid at best and very picked-through.

If you do try out the shortbread cookies, instead of rolling the dough out and then cutting them out, roll the dough into a log, as round as you can make it. Refrigerate the dough until firm then just slice the little rounds. So, so much easier than rolling stuff out with a rolling pin.

I decided to use the cashier checkout instead of the scanner because I had a lot of produce. Sure enough I’m behind a little old lady. She’s carefully packing her groceries into her shopping bags, then packing the bags into her cart. Then I realize she hasn’t paid. Out comes the huge pocketbook. Slowly opened. Searching. Out comes a huge wallet. Slowly opened. She unzips a large compartment in the wallet and out comes a bank envelope holding her cash. She slowly pulls out a $50 and hands it to the cashier. Then she slowly pulls out another $50 and hands it the cashier. Then, of course, she has to stow the change in the wallet and coin purse which go back in the pocketbook.

Never again.

It makes me not want to go out with him sometimes, especially since I have body dysmorphia. He says it's not true, but I notice it all the time.

I had an unpleasant trip to Costco. In the gas line I thought there was an opening in the lane to my right, so I pulled up, but it turned out the guy hanging out in the back of that lane standing outside of his car with the door open considered himself in line and ahead of me and rapped on my window to curse me in broken English. I said i’m sorry and I think you’re overreacting, but that just made him angrier.

Then I had a slice of pizza. The tables were all full so asked two people at a table for four if I could sit, thinking I was being polite, and they made it very clear that I was an unwelcome intrusion on their special lunch.

Finally, I chose my checkout line strategically only to realize too late that the woman in front of me who did not have a cart was part of a group playing the “we’ll each stand on a different line and then move the full cart to whoever gets to the front first” game. They were not nice about it and complained to the cashier that I did not back my cart up enough for them to unload their cart in front of me .

When I was a kid there was a small town parade (with local Indians who scared me), a fireman’s tournament and fireworks at the bay. Then home. Now people helicopter and/or take a private jet or an upscale bus (which serves wine) and the lower classes set off constant firecrackers and professional fireworks in their backyards (ny neighbor the local cop sets them off).

Just because you can Bluetooth connect to your neighbor's soundbar and play demon noises doesn't mean you should.

My neighbor told me coyotes keep eating his outdoor cats so I asked him how many cats he has and he said he just goes to the shelter and gets a new cat afterwards so I said it sounds like he's just feeding shelter cats to coyotes and then his daughter started crying.

I gained 20 pounds and I told my doctor I'm doing more walking than ever and he said are you walking to restaurants?

My A/C crapped out yesterday and I don’t know when it is getting fixed. I took my dog out for a few rides in the car with the A/C blasting and let him play in the hose before dinner and I think that helped. I feel hot and sluggish and know I will have trouble sleeping again tonight. About to take a cold shower and go to bed. Will make more calls in the morning to see if I can get a tech out here asap.

R568, sorry to hear about your AC! Good idea to go car riding with the AC blasting.

This summer has not been unduly hot. For some reason, though, the early sunrise is really bothering me this year. It bothers my sleep on the weekends.

I'm running a little low on Maseca flour, which is actually good. It will give me the opportunity to try Bob's Red Mill masa harina.

R556, Who killed Cock Robin? I, said the Sparrow, with my bow and arrow, I killed Cock Robin. Who saw him die? I, said the Fly, with my little teeny eye, I saw him die. Who caught his blood? I, said the Fish, With my little dish I caught his blood. Who'll make the shroud? I, said the Beetle, with my thread and needle, I'll make the shroud. Who'll dig his grave? I, said the Owl, with my pick and trowel, I'll dig his grave. Who'll be the parson? I, said the Rook, with my little book, I'll be the parson. Who'll be the clerk? I, said the Lark, if it's not in the dark, I'll be the clerk. Who'll carry the link? I, said the Linnet, I'll fetch it in a minute, I'll carry the link. Who'll be chief mourner? I, said the Dove, I mourn for my love, I'll be chief mourner. Who'll carry the coffin? I, said the Kite, if it's not through the night, I'll carry the coffin. Who'll bear the pall? We, said the Wren, both the cock and the hen, We’ll bear the pall. Who'll sing a psalm? I, said the Thrush, as she sat on a bush, I'll sing a psalm. Who'll toll the bell? I, said the Bull, because I can pull, I'll toll the bell. All the birds of the air fell a-sighing and a-sobbing, when they heard the bell toll for poor Cock Robin.

I haven't seen my usual tomato stands up yet either. It's about time for it. I love cutting the tomato while it's still warm, peel and slice some pickling cukes(they're the best little to no seeds) into a bowl. Some salt with italian dressing yum yum yum

I go to an Urgent Care/Walk In Clinic a stone's throw from my house maybe once or twice a year for minor things.

Without fail I always get the same doctor. He looks exactly like Hasan Minhaj from Comedy Central.

He always remembers me, takes his time, is very thorough with such a pleasant manner. I wish I could make him my Primary.

I spent last week re-watching Billions. Showtime ran a daily marathon. Yes, I could watch it On Demand or the Showtime streaming app but I like watching when things are on. Anyway, for me, it's right up there with The Sopranos as one of the best series ever. I miss it.

I believe I have discovered a new-to-me media literacy requirement.

Like books one should read or films one should watch, there are television series one should watch.

It feels lime my vegetable time is being infringed upon by social enrichment requirements.
