@lisaviolet You’ve heard of the Freshman Fifteen? Well, this is what’ll be known as the COVID Nineteen.
There’s also the Corona Nine if you’ve been sticking to a liquid based diet of strictly cerveza & limes.
If you’ve just a wee bit of self control, and don’t pick up quite as much weight during The Fattening, you might get lucky only gaining the SARS Seven.
I’ve been having more frequent, longer and more passionate conversations with my cats and my TV.
And since you’re wondering, no, they haven’t been talking back to me, yet.
Honestly not sure if that’s better or worse than the alternative.
And no, this is not a stolen meme, this is my life. lol
I legitimately caught myself arguing with a TV commercial last night - I was “medicated” at the time, but still…
@lisaviolet I saw “y’all’s panic bying” and had a mental image of someone driving by and waving rather than coming in, which made no sense with the image. It took my brain a second or two before I realized it was “buying”. Aargh.
@lisaviolet@shahnm While my brain was well indoctrinated educated in English classes, my typing fingers were not paying attention much of the time and have their own rebellious ideas on occasion. I often notice what I have typed about 5.3 minutes after hitting the send button (or “Say it”), so I can’t really call anyone else out for it.
@cranky1950@shahnm That was a very Biden-like move.
If it’d been Trump he would’ve grabbed her by the pussy and then just started kissing her, without even asking, and she’d have let him do it because he’s rich.
Or so I’ve heard.
Yes. Trump made that crass joke to a dude many years ago. That’s totally the same as actually doing that, for sure. And it’s the same as the (plausible and corroborated) accusations about Biden’s penetrative sexual assault(s), as well as the countless videos of him actually grabbing/touching/fondling and sniffing women of all ages. Because Orange Man Bad!
@cranky1950 Trump has never been credibly accused of rape. He may have paid for sex with a sleazy stripper, which is wretched, but not in the same league as forcible sexual contact.
Biden on the other hand… Believe it or not, the real news may be outside the purview of the activist left-wing media (which in the past people mistakenly referred to as the mainstream media). For those who prefer to remain comfortably deluded, there’s NBCCBSABCCNNMSNBCNYTWaPo… Take your pick. They’re all the same.
Otherwise, here’s a starting point, but there’s plenty more credible info out there among the more honest media outlets:
PS I didn’t really mean to hijack any part of this thread for political purposes - I meant my first biden comment as a silly side-note more than anything. I have a personal policy against getting political at Meh, which because of several glasses of Jamieson on the rocks with a twist of lime I seem to have really fucked up. If I made you angry or sad, I’m sorry. Feel free to say whatever you wish. I’ll let it be.
@cranky1950@Limewater I’m just going all in on the Jamieson from this point on. Really. Fuck it. I’m going to drink my ass off tonight, and I’ll deal with the repercussions tomorrow while I contend with the death throes of my career that is probably seeing it’s final dying days at this point. It’s almost funny how many times I have had to retype this (and thank God for the automated spell-check)…
Maybe tomorrow, after the headaches and nausea, I’ll remember to come back and click on that Salon link. Though to be honest, I’ll probably have to have a few before I’ll be able to bring myself to click on a salon link…
Sorry for tossing some gas on your fire.
This politics-as-a-team-sport garbage is not worth abusing yourself over.
I mean, if you want to get drunk, there are plenty of good reasons these days.
Waking up with a hang-over isn’t going to make anyone feel better about the current political divide.
I’d recommend cannabis as a self-medication to alleviate frustration over the current state of political discourse - it’s not just for hippy liberals anymore.
@cranky1950@DennisG2014@Limewater I am way way past drinking over politics… Yesterday, I reached into my bag of oh-shit-now-whats, read the card, and then hit the bottle. Probably do the same today. But politics is not one of the cards in that bag…
@lisaviolet As long as you aren’t in the habit of greeting people with other body parts, just washing your hands and elbows should be enough. Remember even without the virus, we still want to try and conserve resources.
@lisaviolet Guess I needed to add
I was originally say as long as you aren’t greeting other people with your genitals, you don’t have to wash them, but didn’t want to detract from my puritanic online persona.
