Random Thoughts Thursday

Yeah, I have not been posting regularly because nothing really has been going on. I will say that I’m very grateful that I have my health, a job, food in the fridge, and a roof over my head. Things definitely could be a lot worse so I’ll try to keep that in mind as I start my bullet points of rants. 

  • First things first, I am so over this quarantining, but I understand why it has to be done. 
  • I have been a bit in a crabby mood, because I’m supposed to be somewhere in Spain drinking like a fish, eating like a pig, smoking like a chimney, and recovering from Sunday’s marathon.  
  • Not to be a hater (although it is what I do best), but I do not think NYC’s Marathon is happening on Nov. 1. I hope that I’m really wrong. That said, I will train for it anyway. 
  • My fitness has gone downhill during the month of April. I do not think that I have done anything besides work, eat, drink, smoke, and sleep. 
  • BUT, I plan to get on some kind of fitness regimen starting May 1. Instead of flattening the curve, I need to start flattening my belly. 
  • Since everyone else is doing it (at least on Twitter), I dyed my hair for sh*ts and giggles. Nothing too crazy.

  • Is it me or does it seem like people what to meet more frequently because of this  COVID thing? Um, every comment, concern, or email does not require a Zoom meeting, a new Slack channel, and/or a new task force/committee. f9d20d44-cbd9-44ad-a2ed-c29a598bece9_text.gif

To be perfectly honest, I hate the term ‘task force’. How is that any different than a committee . . . or even a quorum?

  • During this thing, I think the hubby and I have watched almost every episode of Law & Order: SVU. Now, we are weaning ourselves off of SVU, by binging Survivor. 
  • Speaking of Survivor, it sucks that Hulu only has partial seasons. What am I going to do with episodes 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, and so on? 
  • Oh, never ever order wines from Nakedwines.com. We ordered a 12-bottle crate of wine, and ALL of the wines so far (we’re on bottle #7) have been crappy. I guess you get what you pay for. Well . . . one bottle does not count because I used the Rosé to make Frosé.

My take on the frosé, which I call the Frosei (a combination of Frose and my middle name, Osei). While cleaning the apt, we found quite a few happy hour vouchers. Game on once this COVID19 thing is over. 

  • Back to the crappy wines. I have a very strong suspicion that one of the wines made my pee burn. I wake up one morning, and I’m like great . . . I have a hangover AND my piss burns. The wines are so bad that I really want to send them back to the company; they would not even have to give me a refund.

Adios, mi amigo. 

  • The hubby did an amazing job with his first pineapple upside-down cake.

Enough stalling, time to get to work.

  1. 1 – It would really surprise me if the NYC marathon was allowed to happen this year. I feel like “new normal” will not include large gatherings for a long time. I am already preparing myself to not see Nickelback in concert in July… it’s not like I haven’t seen them 6x already though.

    2 – I’m also preparing myself to not see Jagged Little Pill in June… we’re supposed to see it on June 13th and despite it saying only cancelled through June 6th I have my doubts NYC will be ready to let visitors come flooding back to see shows.

    3 – That is a great looking cake and I’m not even a fan of pineapple!

    4 – You’re a slacker… I worked out EVERY DAY in April, my longest workout streak ever. I challenge you to do this in May.

    5 – I’ve missed you posting weekly. I’m sure you could dig up some stories to share from your past if there’s nothing current that merits posting. Please and thank you!

    • 2. I hope you can see visit NYC and see your show, but NYC already has cancelled the Puerto Rican Heritage Parade (1st weekend in June) and the Pride Parade (3rd weekend in June).

      4. I was doing well in March. I was running 6mi daily, but I had a leg injury then a back injury. I think both healed up a couple of weeks ago, but I lost all motivation. I’m gonna try getting back into the group starting tomorrow.

      5. That’s actually a good idea. This quarantine life has really prevented my ability to get into random shenanigans. For example, ordering picture frames and a blender was the highlight of my day.

      Stay safe and healthy.
