HOARDERS, Season 11, Episode 2, bashes Idonka pretty good!

From within the fog of her serious hoarding disorder, the subject of the show grabs a beat-up purse and says, "Look at this thing! Ivanka Trump! Made in China! $15? I wouldn't pay $15!" (It wasn't clear if she meant there was a price tag on it.)

This show is heavily edited, and usually apolitical. The producers could easily have cut that bit, but they didn't. I wonder how many nasty tweets and emails the show got from the Drumpf bots and crazies!

I just caught part of a Markey ad starring AOC.

If I were undecided, I'd be influenced by her enthusiastic endorsement! I hope the ad plays often.

Playing baseball today in Mass.

Well, not me. My 11-year-old grandson went to his first baseball practice now that it's allowed. He said seven kids showed up and everybody wore masks the entire time. He's looking forward to going again tomorrow.

We are proud of these kids for doing the right thing. It must be a challenge to hit and catch and run and pitch with masks on.

I love my husband, but...

Trying to watch A Quiet Place with him is stressful. Luckily I've seen it before, so I'm just trying to be tolerant. "How can they cook and eat without making noise? What if they fart? You can't have a childbirth without any sounds. Isn't the baby going to cry? Why did he do that?"

He doesn't have many faults actually. 😂

I'm so mad at my broccoli I could scream.

In past years it has sometimes bolted later in the season without preventing a good ongoing harvest, but this year it bolted right away and it's not worth the toilet paper on Shithead's shoe.

2020 strikes again.

The best thing about last night? A precedent has been set.

How will their campaign ever be able to crow about ticket requests again, or be comfortable setting up huge venues, or be confident in what their digital "facts" are telling them?

It's not like they're going to be able to turn the tables and gaslight a Democratic gathering. We don't boast wildly in advance, and the low-information Faux News watchers are not likely to mount a viral TikTok initiative.

We just watched Da 5 Bloods. (No spoilers)

When they say it's rated R for violence and gore, they're not kidding.

Spike Lee never disappoints. This is a complicated movie that (IMO) would require a second watching to be adequately understood. I'll be surprised if it doesn't produce a few Oscar noms, for acting and more.

A puzzling Penzey's spice blend: Pico Fruta

It's for "watermelon, pineapple, mangos...cucumbers or cabbage slaw." I opened the little sample bag and sprinkled it on watermelon. Puke. It's too early in the morning for this mistake.

In my childhood we put salt on watermelon. Nowadays I just eat it plain but don't mind salt. Pico Fruta has: chili pepper, sugar, lemon peel, citric acid, and cilantro.

I love Penzey's and will continue to support, but this spice blend might be better recommended for...fish? I'm going to use it on salmon.

Happiness is discovering an episode of The Goldbergs I hadn't seen, not the recent series

but the 50's radio-to-TV comedy starring Gertrude Berg, who also wrote every episode and won the first Best-Actress Emmy award in 1950. Such a talent. And such fun to be a fly-on-the-wall in the apartment of a Jewish family in The Bronx in the 50's.

I just got an Amber Alert for a missing cat. Not kidding.

On my landline, which we keep for junk calls that go to voice mail. A woman described the cat and gave the street it's missing from, over a mile away from us. She gave an opt-out (press 2 to be on the do-not-call list) but I NEVER press a button.

She gave the website, lostmykitty dot com. I took a look. They put "Amber Alert" in quotes but that doesn't make it ok.

This is misuse of an important phrase IMO. And who TF thinks it's ok to call everybody in town for a missing cat?
