Random Ranting, and Some Good News!
I have been diligently working on the memoir, and the first draft is almost finished! WOOHOO!
Just wanted you to know why the blog has been, somewhat, neglected most of this summer. But, as you know, I turn to all of you whenever a rant has built up to the point of making my head explode. I hope you understand and realize how much I need and appreciate you for times like these.
The memoir has been a way for me to escape the crazy news about the idiot in chief, if only for a few hours a day, and focus on the insanity of my childhood.
We thought things would settle down when Bannon left, and Kelly started babysitting but, no. It’s like whack-a-mole anymore. One fleeting moment he does something close to sane and the next he’s off the rails again.
There won’t be any calming or feeling of relief until this idiot gets impeached or put in jail. Frankly, I prefer the latter, and I hope Arpaio goes with him. They could be cell mates! After all, it seems like a bromance with those two.
So, let’s see, what else is going on around here? Oh, I recently had the pleasure of feeling like a befuddled old lady when we got a wireless/ Bluetooth speaker.
I’ve never had music on my phone. I don’t enjoy wearing headphones and, honestly, most of my phone’s capacity is used up with photographs. Hey, I can’t help myself. But, it was time to get my own music. Dave has tons of music on his phone, mostly classic rock and maybe a little jazz.
So, when we got the speaker, we were only listening to his music. I love me some classic rock. I worked for a classic rock radio station once upon a time. But, I prefer more variety.
I love jazz, especially in the evening. When I’m writing, I prefer classical music. I’m listening to Segovia right now, and it’s soothing until the commercials from Pandora blare on.
I had Spotify on yesterday, and it’s less disruptive but, I haven’t found the perfect fit yet. Any suggestions? I do not have Apple anything. I have a Samsung phone, and I love it, especially for the camera! So, please, let me know if you have a station you love.
The other big news here is the main bathroom. We are gutting and redoing it, and I can’t wait!! I was hoping it would be done before our friends from Key West got here later next week but, guess what…IRMA!!
We told them to come up ASAP when evacuation seemed imminent. They thought they could get a flight out of Key West or Miami, but, no. Even Ft. Lauderdale was booked solid! So they are driving to Orlando today and taking a Delta flight up first thing in the morning.
We hope everyone gets out safely and has a place to return to when the storm is over. If only we could shove Rush Windbag into the vortex of the storm. All the climate deniers should be forced to clean up after these horrible storms.
It really seems like God, or whoever you may believe in, is really pissed at us lately, and how we’ve managed our planet and is blatantly punishing us. Between Harvey, and now Irma, there are the horrible fires out West. We have one idiot in North Korea taunting the idiot in Washington D.C., while he’s pretending to be ‘Presidential.’ All of it interferes with any degree of peace of mind.
Did you see that shit show last week? He goes out with his little lady in stilettos and pretends to be visiting the flood area while never going near it. Then gets called out and decides to go back and help. HA!
I can’t remember which one but, one of the WaPo op-eds mentioned he had obviously never even helped a college friend carry a box into a dorm. He probably didn’t stay in a dorm, and I doubt he had friends, but you get the gist.
He goes up to a flood victim who was in an empty pick-up truck and hands him a stack of buckets through the driver’s window and then reached over them to shake the guy’s hand. When someone handed drumpf a box, he tossed it into the truck bed and another one on top of it. As the guy begins to drive away, the orange anus says, “Enjoy!” Then he turned toward the camera and gave ‘em a big grin.
Oh, and he briefly visited a shelter to hand out hot dogs and before he left he AUTOGRAPHED THE WALL! A true WTF moment!
Ok, I’m done ranting for today but, I do have GOOD news before I close.
I have a publisher for my memoir!!!!!
Donna Cavenaugh, the owner of ShoreHouse Books, has agreed to publish for me! I can’t tell you how excited I am. I love the way she does business and the support she provides throughout the process and way beyond.
So, that’s what’s going on in my world, what’s going on with you? To those still in or gearing up for these horrible storms, I pray you stay safe.
