I'm a writer. I'm also a wife and a parent who works too much and lives too little.
In addition to writing I also love to read, listen to music, travel, cook, I enjoy looking for bargains at flea markets or thrift stores, Christmas, football and of course writing!
How did I come up with the title of my blog? Two things: 1. I live in New England (duh) and 2. Canadian singer Alan Frew once arrogantly told me to "get a New England life"--again--DUH! I already HAVE one!
Today SHITHOLE argued that churches are “essential” and that they must be reopened “now”! And he stamped his foot like a toddler and threatened the lives of all the governors if they tried to stop churches from opening. Like the SHITHOLE he is.
Yes, tell that to the priest of the church that died from coronavirus. Tell that to the thirty church choir members who came down with the coronavirus. Tell that to the many parishoners who have gotten sick from coronavirus. Tell that to the many priests who still refuse to open their churches because of coronavirus. And those are the ones we know of. That’s not mentioning the countless asymptomatic people. I’m sure they all feel their church is “essential”.
The word “essential” means “absolutely necessary or extremely important”. I’m sure to some “going to church” is “absolutely necessary” and “extremely important”. Just as going to work is “essential”. Because if we don’t go to work, we don’t get paid and then have no money to live. But you need to work if you want to get paid. You don’t need to go to church if you want to pray. Which is what I’m assuming all the fools who want to rush off to church are looking to do. Pray. For all I know they’re in a rush to gossip or receive that shitty tasting “communion”. But you don’t need to be in a big fancy building that costs tons of money to run, money that they siphon from you on a weekly basis (which is the real reason why they want their churches open so badly), to pray. You can pray wherever you are, whenever, however you want. For free. Your Higher Power Being will hear your prayer no matter where you are. That’s the beauty of prayer. After you pray you’ll feel as good (or as bad) as you would had you gone to church prayed. The biggest difference is that you’ll be safer.
Don’t let SHITHOLE, of all people, try to convince you otherwise. He’s the biggest hypocrite to religion and faith on the face of the planet. And one of the biggest, if not the biggest (in more ways than one) sinner.
Thirty years ago today the world lost an entertainment genius when Jim Henson passed away.
May his memory always live on, through the movies, music and magic that became The Muppets.
Do yourself a favor at some point in your life. Visit the Museum of Moving Image in Astoria, NY. They have an incredible exhibit of Henson’s work, displaying stuff from his entire career. You can also see an episode regarding The Muppets on “Prop Culture”, a show on DIsney Plus. In the episode they visit the museum as well.
Fools of Stillwater, OK need not worry about having to wear their face masks in public when they go shopping, to the hair salon or to get their free refills at restaurants. They have threatened their way out of protecting themselves and others from COVID-19. Because they are cowards and assholes.
On May 1 an emergency declaration requiring customers to wear face masks inside businesses went into effect. No sooner did it go into effect, all hell broke loose. Customers visiting establishments began threatening employees with verbal and physical violence and even one threat of violence using a firearm. To protect their employees, the declaration was lifted.
What really should have happened was that anyone threatening violence should have been tossed out on their asses, arrested and permanently banned from these places. There is no need to act like banshees because you are being asked to protect your life and the lives of those around you. No employee gets paid enough money to deal with violence, nor should they ever have to.
I can’t speak for the people of Stillwater, OK. I’m sure they’re not all like these insecure idiots. But for the people that acted like this, I have one thing to say: COVID-19–do your thing.
The Vice President (also known as SHITHOLE 2) thinks he’s pretty special.
So special he can waltz right into the Mayo Clinic and gallivant all around among the patients without wearing a face mask. Because he’s regularly tested. And the morons around him are regularly tested. Or so he says.
Really? How regularly? On the hour, every hour? Which we all know is bullshit. And if that were the case, which it isn’t, maybe there’s the answer to where all the tests are. They are up SHITHOLE and SHITHOLE 2’s asses.
The Mayo Clinic isn’t getting off easy on this either. Since it is their policy that everyone in the hospital wear a face mask, and since they didn’t say a word or do a damn thing when this prick decided he was too special to wear one, they are as liable as SHITHOLE 2 is. Their credibility as a high-ranking hospital just went out the window. They are fools. Just like SHITHOLE 2 and of course SHITHOLE.
You think stay-at-home orders are tough now? Could you imagine what it would’ve been like going through this forty years ago?
Most people who work in offices would be as unemployed as retail and restaurant workers. It was a paper-filled world back then and very much hands-on and face-to-face. There were no wireless phones you could connect to your laptop so you could converse with customers. There was no Internet. The lack of technology alone would have everyone lost.
And that’s not even getting to the medical field and how different things would have been there.
Unless kids were getting hand-outs mailed to them, there would be no school. Aside from pizza joints and fast food restaurants, most other eateries did not have the ability to offer take-out forty years ago.
So considering the circumstances and the inconveniences of the current times, let’s be grateful this didn’t happen forty years ago.
