5 news stories - blogging with a Cosmo in me and I haven't ate yet today so..... blogging tipsy, a little, I think

Those of you who read Coffee Talking know I'm not a drinker... I don't like the taste of alcohol so it's just not an issue to me.  But I do like cranberry juice and while making dinner I suddenly thought to myself "isn't a Cosmo made with vodka and cranberry juice?"  and I asked Siri... and she said it was.  So I whipped up a version of it (I think) with vodka, cranberry juice, some triple sec and a little lime juice.  Enjoyed a glass of it while I finished hitting the timer on the Instant Pot and came in to the office to read the news while The Husband is downstairs working out.

And?

Wow.  It hit me.
I didn't eat yet today (busy running errands) and right now my tongue is numb, my arms and fingers are numb and I'm having a heck of a time typing this... having to go back a hundred times to correct typos.  So, what better time to read the news, right?



First:  with Brad and Jen being all nice to each other at the awards show last weekend and all, this article popped up - but how interesting!  I didn't know he had been dating some of them and even engaged a FEW times.  He really does belong with Jen though... he really does.

This vagina scented candle thing...  well, sold out just because, uh, hello?  Everyone is wondering what the heck does a vagina scented candle smell like, anyway?  Not because it's an awesome candle.  Although it might be.  I don't know.  I'm not shelling out $75-$250 to find out.

Let's see.  OH!  This woman.  How gross!!!  And it's not like it's a one time emergency situation.  Nope.  Been doing this regularly ALL THE TIME since at least October.  If you poo in public, shame on you.  Seriously.  SHAME on you.

This story has been in the news for quite some time but you know what?  I'm SICK of this grandfather.  He's an ass.  He screwed up.  He held his granddaughter up to look out the window and accidentally dropped her.  She passed away.  He fucked up.  Big time.  And he's been lying through his teeth trying to blame the cruise company ever since.  Which I GET.  Because I'm sure he feels like crap.  But this family needs to accept the fact the grandfather screwed up... and stop.  It's awful, horrible and stomach turning... but he obviously messed up and it seems he really did know the window was open.  He was just lifting her to lean out or sit in the window like many people WOULD but accidentally dropped her.  It sucks, but they really need to stop trying to place blame where it doesn't belong.  Are they just seeing dollar signs at this point???????

LASTLY!

Jennifer Aniston reveals her first celebrity crush and kiss https://fxn.ws/38NyaPx #FoxNews

Do you remember your first celebrity crush?  I can't say crush and kiss together because as a kid growing up two thousand miles from Hollywood, I obviously never kissed a celebrity crush.  But I DO know my first celebrity crush... and my first 'real' kiss.

Celebrity crush was a big one... a huge crush.  It was C. Thomas Howell. 


I also crushed hard on Kevin Kubusheskie - anyone remember "You Can't Do That On Television" ?
Him


My first 'real' kiss though - a guy named Chris.  Boyfriend.  8th grade.  Not a celebrity.  LOL.

I've just got a friendly face.... you can't take me anywhere

I know I've posted about this before, because I remember telling you all about the guy that kept talking to me for so long, and ran out to his car to get a little Christmas bag and Christmas card for me and then came back in the store and found me to give it to me... made the employees watching on security cameras at Walmart so nervous they sent an employee over to make sure I was ok....

Well, my husband doesn't even question the fact that I every time I come home from running errands, no matter how quick, simple where it's to, I will have information that people willingly just start telling me.  Strangers approach me and start conversations and before I know it, I know way too much about their lives.   We are talking things like details about their cancer and open sores in their hoo-ha's, about men's wives and ex-wives, who their chiropractor is, how long they've been married, where all their family live, those that have horses boarded at local stables and their horse riding excursions, about family living overseas, about the food they are buying, bursting into tears and just needing a friendly face to listen to them, asking me random food and ingredient questions, having me write down food items, brand names... just anythingEverything even.

Today wasn't a day where people gave me TMI like usual, but it was a day where I couldn't simply grocery shop at Sam's Club without being stopped about every 20 minutes with the most random questions! 

One woman was walking by and literally stopped and peered into my cart, looking at my food, when she suddenly asked, "Do you happen to know how many sugar grams are in that wheat bread your buying?"  And I said yes, I did! It was one of the lowest brand available at Sam's Clubs, at 3 grams.  She then asked if I knew how many carbs it had?  So this started a conversation in which I found out she has Diabetes and has to watch her sugar and carb counts... which led to her telling me about also having liver problems and having gotten hepatitis due to her Diabetes and how people have told her the dark circles and puffy bags under her eyes are due to her liver problems.....

Another man in another aisle excused himself and asked if I knew what supplements would be good for women and their bones... which led to me asking if it were just for bones or for joints as well?  I pointed out the glucoseamine and explained the benefits of glucoseamine as well as pointing out the calcium supplements for bones and whether or not he needed to look for a calcium supplement that included Vitamin D - and we discussed how the sun can help your body make vitamin D....  

It ends up he was buying supplements for neighbors and family members back home - the bone and joint supplements for a 27 year old niece and a son who was born with kidney issues, and only one working kidney, and now has joint problems due to it (?).  But the most interesting part?  He was getting all these requests through texts and emails on his phone, and was reading off what they wanted to me...  in Arabic. 

I could see his emails, but obviously couldn't read them since I don't know how to read Arabic.  But I helped him figure out what his niece was requesting and which were good for joint health, and he told me that when he got them home all his neighbors would rush over and take them all from him.  LOL.

Colors that looked good, where items were, telling me what they were looking for... everyone always has something to say to me.  Today the questions and conversations (like the Arabic emails) were so out of the norm that I started to feel like I was on a hidden camera.  Well, other than the security cameras in the ceilings of course.

I guess everyone can tell I'm truly a friendly, helpful, honest and approachable person because LITERALLY everywhere I go - any day - any time - any store...  I'm approached and asked for help, asked questions, or people just strike up conversations with me. 

My husband just shakes his head and smiles.  He can't believe how quickly people approach me and start opening up about their lives.  I don't know.  I just have one of those faces I guess.  My husband doesn't like to go anywhere or run errands anyway - but even when he does, he's learned to just accept the fact that random strangers are going to walk up and just start random conversations with me.  He's learned to walk away and go for a short jaunt around the store or wherever we are because many times those people will keep me for at least 20 minutes. 

I figure God put me there for a reason... the reason being these people just needed a friendly face at that moment in their lives.

The Senate: What would you like? Milk, Water and/or Candy?

If I was a Senator right now, having to sit through the bogus hearings going on... not only would I pissed at the Dems wasting my time, but I'd be especially irritated that my only choices of things to eat and drink are milk, water and... candy!

Yes, all members of the Senate must follow some rules that kind of, sort of stem from a comment made in 1966 (whether this part is true or not, I'm not sure but I read it was) that the Senate was allowed to drink water.  Someone asked if milk was allowed and was told there wasn't anything specifically banning milk... so that was taken as a 'yes'.  And so... milk and water.

What about coffee!?

Is there anything that specifically bans coffee?  Because like milk, if there wasn't a rule specifically banning coffee... I want coffee!

And what's up with the candy thing?

I saw a list of the candy and it's chocolate.

That is the first problem.  YUCK!

And second?

All sugar and fat.

Rolo's and MilkyWay and yada yada....

Now, it just so happens not only do I not like chocolate, and don't care for candy in general... I hate milk!  Seriously, I've not drank milk since I was about 3 years old.  By the time I was 4 my parents realized I really truly hated it and didn't push it on me.   I had a nun in Catholic elementary school that did... I think I blogged about that before.  But this girl hasn't been a 'milk' drinker since it came from an infant's bottle.

So basically, if I was a Senator right now I'd be existing on water.

Candy makes me nauseated and throw up... maybe if ate some, got sick and had to run out of the room to vomit, I could then quickly sneak a hot coffee from a kiosk and some crackers or something non-sweet from a vending machine, hide, drink coffee, nibble on the crackers and go back into the Senate chambers to sit and silently sip my water.
