Mother Nature is mean when she drinks



Yeah it's quite cold here in Iowa.  The weather service says it's -8 here now. 


That's before wind chill.  With the wind child it feels like -28 out.  It's so cold out I'm getting alerts from GM that the cold might immobilize my vehicle if it's not plugged in.  

I wish I could escape to a warm climate right now.

      How is Caris doing? For unknown reasons I'm blocked from her IG and can't check on them anymore.

      The most recent update for her I could find was a reply from a couple months ago saying so far she's on track with her milestones except maybe rolling over.

      Thats my problem with any homemade bread. I eat way too much! Its really pretty dangerous for me to have around as I have absolutely NO willpower.

      I feel you!! And not only with carbs.. There is a reason we nearly never have candy or ice-cream at home.

      The comment on their IG live is just beyond awful. Some of these so called fans are just sick.
      I remember a few years back Alyssa Bates Webster got very inappropriate comments about her oldest daughter Allie and went off IG for a while. Can't blame her for that. There is a lot you can critize when it comes to people like Jinger or Alyssa, but please leave their kids out of your crap.

      My dad is color-blind, so my mom lays out his clothes for the following day every night. One time on vacation, she forgot to do it, and was out grabbing breakfast in the morning when he woke up. So, Rufus Bless, he did the best he could. Red and white striped shirt with pink golf shorts. He truly had no idea that they didn’t match at all. 🤣

      My boyfriend has red green weakness and he says that's one of the reasons he only wears black.

      Chemtrails? Really? She is really getting deeper and deeper into all that conspiracy crap. I wonder what her husband thinks about this. He's probably fundie too, but she seems to be really losing her mind.

      Anyone know how to disguise a webcam?
      I have to start looking for a real job now that I'm vaccinated and the end of the pandemic is a possibility, and that will likely mean Zoom. With video. I'm camera-phobic (I'm fine taking pictures, but I cannot have one pointed at me). I just tried looking for webcams on Amazon and basically had a panic attack and breakdown just looking at pictures of those evil things. Actually having one pointed at me, recording and transmitting . . . no. I can't. It's not nervousness. It's not mere camera shyness. It's a true phobia, though there is apparently no official name for it.
      I have avoided Zoom and its ilk so far (my family was all into Zoom meetings this time last year, but I started with audio-only, then said no entirely), but it's all the rage and likely will be for a long time, if not forever. So I'll need to suck it up and get a webcam. Maybe if it's covered up like a nannycam I can force myself to use it without having a total breakdown. It also needs to be easy to disconnect and shove in a drawer because I can't have one where I can see it, even shut off, unplugged, and covered.
      So . . . any suggestions for webcam disguises? One already non-camera-looking would be best, but an appropriate cover could work. The tricky part is that the lens must be covered as much as possible. Can I use an actual nannycam for this?
      Please do not suggest "therapy" for my phobia. That is not an option for many reasons, which I will not get into here.

      Happy international weed day to my fellow mary jane loving/enjoying FJ'ers 

      I usually only smoke weed on Friday evening and Saturday evening, but I will be making an exception for today. The weather is lovely and I am off work at 15:00, so then I'll be sitting in the sun on my balcony, listening to some good music and

      The jury in the Chauvin (George Floyd) trial is sequestered in deliberations as of today. I live in Minneapolis now and the edge in the city is palpable, especially after another police shooting here LAST WEEK. Went to our nearby Target today (the one that was destroyed last summer) and the National Guard is already in the parking lot. If the verdict is not guilty or manslaughter...it's gonna be crazy.
