Pluses and Minuses

 ~ "...as much use as a chocolate teapot."  This delights me in so many ways.

~ Whenever I need a laugh, I watch this and whenever I need to express my displeasure I imitate the voice saying "No, No..I don't want it"

I don't bake anymore yet I am still compelled to cut out recipes that tickle my fancy and just might tickle my taste buds if I made them. Mmmm - Pie!




And things that irk me

~ People who describe themselves as empaths and how they "feel all the feels". And the implied superiority. No, you are a pretentious little twit.

~ "You do you." WTF does that mean? 

~ Ageism - I am sick to death at being spoken to as if I am 5 years old or suffering from dementia. I am old, I am not stupid.

~ Assumptions based on zero information or prejudiced views which leads to

~ People who get all their exercise from jumping to conclusions.

  1. As I told my daughter the other day, I get all sorts of exercise during the day. My favorite is patting myself on the back...it's good for the body and for the spirits. :D

  2. Thank you for the smile today. :) I love the 'people getting exercise by jumping to conclusions'. I'd hadn't heard that phrase before but it so aptly describes people I know.

  3. My guinea pigs don't like broccoli either, but they haven't (yet) started throwing unwelcome veggies back at me.

  4. I had forgot how funny that video is! 'You do you' seems so passive aggressive to me although I have seen it used where it works.

    1. I find it very dismissive and flippant. Even if someone used it as a sort of encouragement for someone to be themselves it just sounds off...
