trying to learn a new to me weave, and flub it rather drastically

And as I’m sitting there contemplating that flub, my husband leans over my shoulder and says “I bet you could put a D20 in that…..”

Turns out I can repeat said flub too

I did eventually manage to make the weave I was trying for at least….


Let me count the ways you’re a scammer

1: says he got my email from a mailing list, except, that email is never used on mailing lists

2: then proceeds to make it clear he actually did look at my site

3: “you TOTALLY want to link to my site right? Your readers will LUV this topic thats COMPLETELY unrelated to anything you’ve ever posted about!”

4: “my mommy says I’m the best and I know you’ll agree if you’d just click through my spam link so I can get clicks!!”

5: random reference to “wife’s dressing room”

6: “if you share my link on your blog you’ll be like a hero or something!”

7: really dumbly fake foreign sounding name

8: sends repeated emails each trying a different version of the tactic, cause obviously I’ll change my mind THIS time


memes 4/18/21

For those of you who’re new to my meme dumps: They started on Facebook. It just so happens that when Covid hit my employer was deemed an essential business, which makes me an “essential” worker. Yay. The memes quickly developed into a way for me and my FB friends (many of whom are co-workers, or other “essential” workers) to get a laugh when we were all stressed all to hell. I started posting them here at the request of family who aren’t on FB, and then on Twitter at the request of my husband who prefers that platform.

I keep my FB page very non-political, as I have friends on about every side of the political spectrum you can picture, so there are memes posted here that were not posted on my FB page. I’ve kept it up because the stressors of Covid have NOT gone away for us “essential” workers. If anything they’ve gotten worse. And we ALL need the smile some days.

Hey look

locking everyone in their houses and not allowing them their normal activity levels very likely made it MORE likely they’d get sicker and die from the plague than if they’d been allowed to stay active!

Physical inactivity is associated with a higher risk for severe COVID-19 outcomes: a study in 48 440 adult patients

and

This study found the SARS-CoV-2 virus was three times more sensitive to the UV in sunlight than influenza A, with 90 percent of the┬ácoronavirus’s particles being inactivated after just half an hour of exposure to midday sunlight in summer.
