Mood’s been kinda weird the past few days. 🤷🏻♂️ The whole transition of Trump leaving and Biden getting sworn in… I dunno, other than watching some of the inauguration, my brain has decided to just dip out of watching / caring about politics for the moment. 🙂 I know he’s signing a bunch of executive orders, but I just can’t be bothered to look into them all yet. It’s just a relief that the chaos of Donald Trump is gone, so I’m taking advantage of this teeny bit of in-between time to just not think about any of it, knowing that nothing illegal, immoral, or ignorant is gonna happen while I’m not paying attention. 😏
Of course I’m still anxious for the rest of the impeachment trial to happen, and I’m hoping that something is found out / done about politicians like Boebert and Hawley and Cruz, but just avoiding the news in general for a few days has been nice. I did see that Republicans are already outraged that Biden apparently wore a Rolex at the inauguration, and that he wasn’t wearing a mask while he was outside, by himself, visiting the Lincoln Memorial. 😯🙄🤦🏻♂️ Good to see the GOP focusing on the serious issues again, eh?
But my friend Jim is coming to town to take me and his brother out for our collective birthday dinners on Sunday, and with things being as they are – I do have to admit that I’m a little nervous about being out and around people. 😳 Went in town yesterday to top off on a bit of grocery / household stuff at Dollar General, and for whatever reason that store was packed in the middle of the day. 😣 Nobody, myself included, looked like they wanted to be there, but at least everyone was wearing masks. 😷😷🤧😷😑 Dinner will be fine though… it’ll be in the mid-afternoon, so less people than if it was actual lunch or dinner time, and obviously it’s not like I’m gonna be hugging up on the other folks that will be there or anything.
I can’t remember the last time I actually went inside a restaurant to eat though. 🤔🤨 I’m sure they’ll try to keep folks separated as best as they can, but I dunno… it’s either gonna jinx me, since I’ve been a champ at avoiding human contact for months now, or it’ll just be a nice treat that I deserve since I’ve been respectful with my mask usage and haven’t acted like a giant cunt about any of it to anyone. 😏 Looking forward to poofing my belly with something heavy though, for sure. Last “real” food I had was when Amy dropped off some stuffed cabbage rolls, taters, and apple dumplings. 😁 I don’t think her family realizes how spoiled they are when it comes to dinner.
