White knuckling it

I need to stop sneaking looks at Twitter I guess. I use it as a news aggregator but it’s making me CRAY-ZEE. Today the Orange Toddler-in-Chief spent an hour or so on the phone ranting and raving incoherently at Georgia’s Secretary of State, who VOTED for Trump. Really? REALLY? We’ve got to get him out. We’ve got to get him out. WE’VE GOT TO GET HIM OUT!

Oops. Sorry but I STILL don’t understand his popularity. Not to mention all the terrification about AOC and Bernie taking over and converting our country to socialism or whatever. George Soros is gonna pay for it, don’tcha know? [That’s SARCASM!]

The pic is what Old Man Winter was doing as I was walking into the schoolyard at 0-skunk-30. Multiple weather apps told me it was not snowing. Oh yeah? I was quite wet when I got back and I shivered for a while (in a comfortable way) under a blanket on the Green Couch. Eventually it stopped snowing except it looked like it was *still* snowing because the temperatures warmed up enough that big clumps of snow were falling out of the trees. I mean CONSTANTLY!

I finished Sirens of Titan. What a ride! I love books where people with no particular training just hop onto various “flying saucers”, push a button and zoom off to Mars or Mercury (forgot about Mercury) or wherever. No thought to supplies like food, etc., whatsoever. I’ll leave it at that in case you haven’t read it and want to. What an imagination!

In a complete shift of gears, Kristin Lavransdatter is next up. Another family read or partial one anyway. I used to eyeball this book/series down at the original Borders store on State and Liberty but never got around to reading it.

And I made my third batch of Chex mix for the season. We don’t really eat cereal so I am trying to get rid of it. Last year it hung around until it got stale and I threw it in the compost.

Back to teleCubelandia tomorrow, HI HO!

    Twitter has been on fire all day. I’ve listened to much of the recording and it is bat$hit insane. Staggering. Like a mob boss. Jan. 20th can’t get here fast enough.

    Last year I made a huge batch of Chex Mix (“Nuts & Bolts”), and I made it really good with lots of butter and premium nuts, and then proceeded to eat most of it myself because it was like catnip. So this year I absolutely DID NOT make it in order to keep my mitts away from it!

    Jane sent us a very pretty snow picture this morning from her backyard.
    I didn’t realize how much of a news vacation I was on, until I glanced at the Sunday paper. Geesh.

    He is insane, so the people who still support him are what? Discouraging and terrifying. I LOVE Chex Mix, but anything munchy, salty and with nuts is dangerous for me to have around. 🙂
