Public post for Monday

Up at 2 am with low blood sugar. Maybe the double dose of Ozempic is working after all. Had a Klondike bar and watched 90 Day Fiance. The Americans are all whacked one way or another. None of these couples deserve to make it.

Back to bed, slept well enough, Spook joined me for the last moments. She's been following me around more lately. This evening she climbed the livingroom tree to within 6 inches of Ma'am and just sat there listening to the rude noises. I think she really wants to be friends.

Played on the tablet till 10. Hgl was up a bit too high by then.

Watched streams, had a frozen meal for lunch. It took an hour to get to Urology. Horrible traffic on the route my car GPS picked. Results of that visit are in a flocked posting.

Drive home was a lot easier, I will take that route in reverse next time.

Called the podiatrist and canceled Wednesday's appointment. He didn't understand that my insurance was pre-cleared, and he's kind of a creep anyway.

Lots of packages on the porch. Vitamins, soda flavorings, deodorant, cat treats from Amazon. Assorted edibles from Imperfect Foods. Been munching the smoked Gouda snacks. The Albertson's salad greens are melting, probably need to disposal them and move to the imperfect foods ones. Same greens but smaller container. Will try the cinnamon bread in the toaster oven tomorrow.

Nissan did not call back.  Will call him tomorrow.

Got mail from the IRS - dated last week telling me my $600 stimulus was being deposited into my bank. I actually got that $$ the first week of January.

BASFA meeting was fun

Streamed after but gave up when no one joined for half an hour.

Watched Below Deck Sailing Yacht. Covid panic cut the charter short. The crew are all way too horny.

Plans for tomorrow:
Schedule radiology appointment
Call Nissan sales
Call Humana pharmacy find out who Urology needs to send prescriptions to
Hang the quilt
Look at tropical fish aquarium prices. And do I want Bettas or ciclids?
Iron the Hawaiian shirts
Watch The Bachelor finale. Try not to throw things at the TV

Bachelor FAIL

Lots of little projects today. Stripped the bed and laundered the sheets and sister's quilt. Made the bed with brand new linens, white with floral pattern. Spook helped.

Righted the rocking chair which had blown over on the porch. Ordered bungee cords to tie the chairs to the rails. The winds here can get ridiculously fierce.

Ordered longer drinking straws. The last batch are too short for my tumblers.

Stapled the quilt to the wall where the old desk had been. It's crooked, but it's also sideways

Called Nissan dealer, it looks like they could find the long range 2021 version of what I have. Had to go online and see the trim names. Will make an appointment to talk to them about a trade-in. If the $$ work and they have a non-black car available, I may do this after my IRS refund hits the bank.

Tried to find a fish tank setup on Amazon but their search engine sucks. No way to narrow it down to a particular size. But there's a tropical fish store up the road a piece, I'll check them out tomorrow. Not sure if I want to breed Siamese fighting fish or gouramis. Could do both, in a large enough tank.

Cats have been fighting. No apparent damage except to my ear drums. Ma'am eats too much too fast and barfs.

Watched The Bachelor finale and After shows. Matt James was a poor choice. The after show he comes in with a huge beard like LeBron. He was cleanshaven for the whole season. He was kind of catatonic in the After show. In the finale he walked out on his #2 choice, left her shattered. And in the After we find out he walked out on his #1. Just like his dad did to his mom. Which he kept saying he was not going to do because he saw how it hurt his mom. He broke up with #1 because in 2018 she had gone to a plantation ball. He and the producers were upset because #1 did not think anything of it because all her friends did that. There were no overt racist tones to it, but it got blown way up. Matt said she had to do her homework alone, which is so wrong. He should have helped teach her.

#1 and #2 made up, but they cut that from the show, the host posted about it on Twitter. #2 was given a sop - the producers had passed up all women of color when they chose the next bachelorette, but now they are giving #2 her own season in addition. They are still jerks.

Channel surfing bore a gem. A genealogy show which did in depths with three TV news women. The depth of research was amazing. PBS.

Ma'am sat on my tummy for most of my TV watching.

Plans for tomorrow:
Tropical Fish store
Nissan follow up?
Below Deck Med?
SS and covid $$ due in my bank account
