So I guess the good news is we only have two more months of 2020. The bad news is that a lot more weirdness could happen in those two months. The next big foreseeable thing is Election Day and the days thereafter. If you live in certain states, mainly the southern ones, you need to prepare for civil unrest. Particularly so if Trump is not reelected. The local militias here are already calling for “civil war.” Because, why not. It’s 2020 and a billion things are trying to kill us. So why not whackadoodle “militias.”
I have to do one of those panic inducing BIG SHOPS at the Publix and have been putting it off. But tomorrow I just have to do it. I have always been sort of a prepper. I have things in the house to defend myself with, at some point I even bought a giant roll of black plastic. It’s still under my bed in case I need to cover all my windows in the event of a gas attack. I always have a ton of rice and beans and things in the pantry you can survive on straight out of the can. And also, several hand held can openers. I have batteries. Flashlights. Lanterns. But I am out of EVERYTHING. It has been seven months and as it turns out I needed almost all of the things. So off I go. I already don’t want to go.
Are you guys doing Halloween? I hate Halloween. Thankfully, the kids in the my hood generally go to the neighboring fancy neighborhoods for the good candy. So hopefully I won’t have to disinfect my doors again after Halloween. If any of y’all dress up and want me to post your photos I will. I watch all the morning talk shows and Kelly and Ryan do a huge Halloween show every year. This episode was HORRIBLE! Like I just deleted the episode horrible.
What are y’all eating during quarantine? My freezer is bare enough to sort of straighten it out a bit. I had some pollack that I did not enjoy and some shrimp so I made a spicy tomato based (also need diced tomatoes) fish stew and it actually came out pretty good. Some chicken broth, some diced tomatoes (I actually prefer Rotel original it’s spicy, some clam juice, some canned clams, shrimp and fish… some left over rice I made with shrimp last night…. it’s not bad. I have way too much though because cooking for one is hard. I wish I could share with all of you.
This is an open forum. And I know I usually try to ask for the comments to be less depressing, but these are trying times so feel free to tell us what you are going through. Oh and as I was typing this, I somehow got a tiny cut or bite on my hand? I have no idea and it is getting red and swelly. WTF? I am literally sitting on the couch? Can we make 2021 come faster? I really don’t think it will be better until 2022 but let’s hope.
