Thursday Thoughts

Some Thoughts:

  • SP actually went into Costco and shopped the other day. It's great that Costco requires customers to wear masks, but masks aren't very effective when worn as chin cradles.
  • Tomorrow Allegheny County moves from red to yellow. As far as I can tell, this doesn't mean much, Or maybe it just doesn't mean much for me. I still won't be able to go to the salon to get my hair colored and cut.
  • What the heck is wrong with people? I think COVID-19 has erased manners and good will to mankind from some people. People freaking out at Red Lobster. People fighting/breaking arms at Target. People demanding boycotts of Costco for requiring masks. Threats of violence over mask requirements at restaurants in Oklahoma. People freaking out & harassing employees over ice cream in MA. People saying they won't follow government plans and will open anyway.
  • So, between those kinds of stories and the stories about the current administration's handling of the pandemic, the tweets, the things they say to the press, the things going on at the Justice Department... well, it's all pretty depressing. Often, I feel sad, despair, hopelessness. I'm not sure that November 3 will bring relief.

What We're Eating:


What We're Watching:

  • Agatha Raisin on Acorn TV. We finished season 1 and started season 2.
  • The new season of Worst Cooks started. It's a celebrity season, which we usually do not enjoy as much, but also, the people aren't as bonkers and we're not wondering where the heck they found the contestants.
  • HTGAWM ends tonight. I enjoyed it much more in the beginning. Things have gotten so messy and muddled and crazy. Is Annalise really going to die? Is Wes back from the dead? I hope we get a recap at the end of who killed who and when and why and where!
  • Station 19. Not sure I like this new storyline about Andy's parents. 
  • I finally watched the latest Star Wars movie, The Rise of Skywalker. It was OK. 
  • I also watched Bad Boys for Life. Not as good as the original two, but decent entertainment one afternoon.

What I'm Reading:
I'm anxious for the library to reopen. The books I want to read are not available in eBook format in the catalog. Meanwhile, I finally started reading The Other Einstein.
