Please Buy Again

buyagainIt was something I would have never done as a teenager.  The box of girl scout cookies came with a note that read “thank you… please buy again.”  One of my co-workers took orders for her daughter’s girl scout troop in the clinic.  I pulled $5 out of my wallet so I could have a box of cookies myself.  When Kyafia delivered the cookies they came with this note to ‘buy again.’  I told my co-worker, “your daughter has a lot of nerve.  She’s going to be an executive in an office someday.  Can I take a selfie with the mother of a future up-and-comer?”  She said “sure.”kyafiaandme

Almost Angie

almostangie3:28 and all is… almost Angie!  I was revisiting the human clock a few days ago when I saw this guy on the analogue side.  I’m pretty sure he’s of the male persuasion, but the clothes, the hat, and the stance, and the expression on his face remind me of my old co-worker, daughter figure, and beeping vegetable buddy, Angie.  One of our last songs we collaborated on was about my fear of shower curtains.  I miss ya kiddo.

Santo In The Treasure of Dracula

mexicanwrestlerYep. That’s the name of tonight’s episode on the latest incarnation of the show that won’t die– Mystery Science Theater 3000!  It started in the late 1980′s and now 33 years and 3 networks later, there’s still someone trapped in space with his robot pals making fun of bad movies!  I’ve got my special pass to watch Santo in the Treasure of Dracula at the Gizmoplex tonight at 7pm with all the other fans who pitched in last year to raise over $6 million.  Together we’ll see what happens when Mexican wrestler El Santo invents a time machine in 1969– only to have somebody use it to find the hidden location of Dracula’s treasure.  I don’t know about you but if there’s a masked Mexican wrestler who can travel through time and fight Dracula, I want to see it!!!

Neighbors, Cards, and Food

neighborsIt began as a way to stay social in the early days of Covid.  Then we started looking forward to it every month.  We started playing cards and eating dinner with our neighbors Barb and Evelyn over a year and a half ago.  Last week Barb made meatball pasta and garlic bread.  Jenny brought salad.  We played two hands of Hand and Foot (aka Canasta), and then ended the night with a dessert Evelyn called Very Merry Berry Bars.  This bi-weekly tradition is one that keeps me sane.
