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?

Corelle can shatter if a can of beans drops on it from a height of two feet.

The plate covering my big, beautiful salad is now part of the salad, looking like pretty shards of cheese. The whole fucking plate. In the bowl, along with the can of beans.

This is not good.

I just cut my husband's hair for the second time.

He's getting really picky--he wants the sides to match. I told him I didn't poke his eye out with the scissors so it was a success.

Today my mother turns 97.

It's the first time in ages that I'm not in Baton Rouge for it (at 75, I'm not getting on a plane now), but my two sisters are there. Also, we are incredibly lucky because Mom has a fantastic 86-year-old husband who takes care of her in their own home.

My sister just told me that Mom said (in her limited post-stroke vocabulary), "Why did the Lord leave me down here? I'm ready to go. I want to see Jan (her deceased daughter) and the rest of them." Mom is the last of 14 siblings who grew up in rural Mississippi.

As an atheist, I stopped discussing religion with Mom long ago. I hope her life ends peacefully. That's all we can wish for anybody.

I must remember not to tell my son-in-law I need something.

He heard my daughter, his wife, say I need baking soda, meaning a small box for the fridge. He just went to Costco and now I'm the proud parent of a bouncing bag of baking soda, birth weight 13.5 lbs., plus two 50-count bottles of Pepsid because he heard the latest rumors about it being used against the virus.

I suppose it could be worse, and I'm grateful. I'll adopt the baby out (donate) and buy myself a little box. 😜

My Facebook photographic history project while staying home.

Most of my FB friends are family members. I've been going through boxes of very old photographs and posting them. My mother will be 97 in a month. I've found pictures of her in the Navy in 1943, and pictures of her mother, and pictures of all her children when little (I'm the oldest at 75.)

If I didn't make this record, who would ever see these pictures? My kids and grandkids are used to digital-only photos. I'm getting a lot of interest and excitement; it's like opening a family museum.
