Those are small, snack-sized Pringles containers. You know, the ones that you find in your hotel mini bar that cost $9.00 US each.

As a Pennsylvanian*, I’m getting a kick out of this.

if it makes anyone feel better (it sure did for me)

Rand Paul just tested positive for Covid19

he’s the asshat that keeps holding up relief bills by trying add to constitutional amendments, seriously

here’s hoping he ends up not being able to breathe in a week, couldn’t happen to a “nicer” or rather more appropriate guy

Personally, I’d capitalize ‘Great’ and ‘Quarantine’, lest anyone get the wrong idea…

I just combed through my DVR and found a Sesame Street 50th Anniversary Special from PBS.

They had this image, had to share, couldn’t find a more appropriate topic. Fills me with squee

Offered here sincerely, 100% without my customary snark:

Will try to dig up some bbs links to the sewing, pickling, and other stuff suggested in the article.

For those of us who are not homeowners with overflowing lists of home repairs, there is still plenty to do, I’ll bet.

Darn socks:

Sew on loose or missing buttons:

Patch jeans:

Pickling vegetables, which can save some room in your fridge:

And here’s a song I’ve been singing along with… it has helped me…

I have posted it on bOING before, but I feel it is ok to repost here.

Tomorrow I will likely try my hand at soapmaking, which I haven’t done since last year.

I had a daydream today that the virus kills all humans on Earth, and some future civilization has to piece together what happened from our social media feeds.

It’s hard to imagine being at home with nothing to do. Doesn’t everyone have five years of home projects to get around to?

Our home repairs (all DIY) list ferociously long. Daunting.

There’s a part of me that is wondering WTF we’re going to do once all the hardware and plumbing supply stores close down here in Texas. Dang well better not be while we are in mid-project. Quel désastre!

As I write this, my partner took his truck to a big box hardware store with a list of plumbing fittings of differing materials, various PEX diameters and lengths, sheetrock, various fasteners, two types of saber-saw (“Sawzall®)” blades, etc. He’s got an entire box of disposable gloves and insists he will social-distance himself.

The repairs we are making are long overdue. If we are to continue living here, we need to fix things ASAP.

I put in my request for organic fertilizer as long as he’s there, because I am nearly halfway through getting my veg garden planted. At least I can bank on no one panic-buying all the desiccated, pelletized poultry-poop!

Just finished watching Season 1 of TNG (no-beard Riker). So yeah I’ve been super productive so far.

The first rule of soapmaking is: you don’t talk about soapmaking.
