  1. In my experience, all meaningful, memorable poems are "something other than a poem." The poem had passion. Not to you in particular... If the imagery evoked by the poem bothered some people, I have to wonder if the same was felt about American carnage.
  2. I started watching Looney Toons sometime around the election and still find them quite therapeutic. Today I will add chocolate chip cookies.
  3. This is amazing! Thank you! White Tiger is coming to Netflix January 22, so I guess I need to finally read the copy I bought years ago. I'll have to look over the list later for more items of interest. This is a great idea, and thank you so much. So far, so good.
  4. I made a post in the very first Book a Week 2020 thread saying I was finally going to do this...and then all hell broke loose in the second week of January. 🙃 2020 was rotten here before it was the in thing for 2020 to be rotten. 🤣😒🎻 So here I am again. I've got to go back and read all the posts from this week, but I wanted to get this post in before week 2 started. I am currently reading Caste: The Origins of Our Discontents by Isabel Wilkerson and just today I received The House in the Cerulean Sea, by TJ Klune, hich I hope is going to provide some nice escapism this weekend. My
  5. INSANE. Absolutely INSANE. I can't actually watch it again, because I'm convinced I will have a heart attack based on my fury at the insanity of it. The lack of understanding here, and his incredulousness. The #$@!* privilege... I can't. He CONFESSES to his CRIME and is UPSET that there are repercussions for CRIME.
  6. We had our current house built for us. We closed in May 2019. DH and I found the process fun and not stressful at all, but our builder was great about keeping us updated on progress, and we made frequent trips to the construction site to watch the build as it progressed. We had looked for ages and knew exactly what we wanted but could never find it. It is amazing to have the perfect layout for us, a perfect "forever home" layout that will allow us to have kids comfortably return for holidays or just if they need to stay with us for a time at any point. But their rooms are in their own area, up
  7. And I didn't know that ham flavored BTB was a thing! Turns out they have lobster! And mushroom! And fish! And others... You rocked my world today. ☺️Thanks so much for posting!
  8. I'm thinking Chinese for NYE this year, which I'm only bothering to post because I also wanted to share... We have bratwurst with sauerkraut and black-eyed peas every New Year's Day. Growing up, we had pork roast and cabbage and black-eyed peas.
  9. Yes, and I would have bought one for my burrito-loving kid except he already has favorite blankie and a weighted blanket. This burrito is right up his alley. Happy to have discovered a bowl of cereal for him as well. February birthday...
  10. And an avocado toast and a burrito! People, this is information I needed a week ago! 😂
  11. Tell your DD thanks for this. I can't say how bummed I am that no one has started up Clover Lake Biology. Or Clover Mountain Biology. Or Clover Field Biology. 🎻 😢 Please, for the love of all that is good in the world, someone give this mom the perfect biology.
  12. Fairy lights are for ambiance. LOL They can also be used to clip little pics and momentos onto. Some do have clips for this, in fact. So instead of soap/body wash, something from LUSH. I am in love with Magic Crystals, and sometimes the kids want to use mine. Bath bombs, shower bombs, shower gels, hair masks, nice lotions, etc. They have a men's line as well, although I'm not super familiar with those products. One of my boys has extremely dry skin and likes Body Shop body butters. I do too, but my favorite are the Trader Joe's body butters that are stocked each year at Christmas. I
