When librarians get bored.

.

I saw this online the other day and it was too fun not to share.

.

.

Librarians in France having fun during the pandemic.

.

.

I’m always amused at this type of thing.

.

.

But no matter how many times I try to recreate something similar it never works.

.

.

Some of these are clever.

.

.

Some, disturbing.

.

.

But they all made me smile.

.

.

And marvel at how close they were able to match the book covers.

.

.

Dali would be proud.

.

.

In the continuing series – River is a Pandemic Slacker….

.

What have I done during the pandemic that can be considered constructive? Well… I’ve gained weight, tore the meniscus and damaged the MCL in my right knee, gained more weight, adopted a cat and drank my skyrocketing weight in alcohol. What haven’t I done?

.

.

I haven’t written and published a cookbook with a lizard.

.

.

But this woman did.

.

.

.

.

And I think I’m going to have to buy it.

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because we all need a laugh now and then.

.

.

Wow. I might need to buy a new air conditioner.

.

.

Don’t judge. It’s been a very long year..

.

.

There’s a mental image for you!

.

.

We do indeed.

.

.

Rest assured, I will never be doing that.

.

.

Technically that last one isn’t a pandemic meme. But if you’ve shopped for building materials lately… you know its pandemic related. Plywood has gone up about a million percent since last March. It’s insane!

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Still here. Still laughing… even when it’s not so funny anymore.

.

.

Seriously, you’ve had a year to figure it out. WTH?

.

.

Call me crazy, but I still think that’s a good thing.

.

.

Yes, hang on to your Charmin…. toilet paper shortages could be just around the corner again.

.

.

I think I still have 45 rolls from the first Oh no, I’ll never be able to wipe my butt again! apocalypse…. so I’m good. The rest of you? Good luck.

.

.

It looks like home schooling is winding down now with kids going back to the classroom…. but something tells me mommy’s sippy cup might still have a bit of the grape left in it.

.

.

True that.

.

Random

.

Remember when I posted about giving the husband some Red Sox memorabilia for his birthday?

.

.

Here’s Lord Dudley Mountcatten sitting above the mint condition 1968 pennant. It arrived in a long padded box, wrapped in layers of wax paper, tissue paper and bubble wrap. It was cherry! Until Dudley pounced on it, ripping it in two places and punching a giant tooth hole in the tip. Sigh.

.

.

Here he is eyeing the kinetic sculpture when my husband gave it an inaugural twirl.

Needless to say I put that out of reach shortly after.

.

.

Cats, I love them… but it doesn’t mean they don’t drive me crazy.

.

.

I got this announcement from WordPress the other day. And while I’m flattered they’re keeping track of my posts, I had to wonder at the random number. Is 1337 something to celebrate?

.

.

I ordered this customized coffee mug for a friend and can’t wait to give it to her. ( our names are underneath the chairs but have been removed to protect the not so innocent ) That’s me on the left with the margarita and the figure I haven’t seen for 20 or so years. Hair, drinks, skin tone and shirt are customizable but they didn’t have an overweight and menopausal option, go figure.

.

.

But I admit, it does describe our relationship perfectly.

.

In other news…. I’m scheduled to receive my first Covid vaccine this morning. Maine has done a remarkable job with the roll out and I’m looking forward to being on the road to fully protected as well as doing my part to stop the spread of this horrible life altering virus.

Scotland. Home to fine whiskey, rugged highlands, a mythical lake creature, bagpipes, my ancestors… and haggis.

(If you don’t know what haggis is, consider yourself lucky and leave it at that.)

.

.

Since the owner/bartender of our local pub is a Scot born and bred, I thought it might be fun to show up wearing a mask of my clan’s tartan the next time we drop by for a pint. Enter Amazon.

Sure enough they had one…

.

.

Though by the look of the packaging, I’m guessing it was not made anywhere near a peat bog or by Clan MacGregor.

.

.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering….

.

.

The post title is my clan’s motto in Gaelic. Royal is my race.

.

.

Well, yes.

There’s that too.

.

Flotsam and jetsam.

.

A little bit of this and that for your reading pleasure.

.

.

I really don’t want crabs, but human sized rubber claws are mighty tempting.

.

.

I have to admit I had no idea what the term whisker biscuit meant.

.

.

Well, okay then….

.

.

Underboob funk?

Please, if you can spread this ridiculous product all over your body? How about spreading those ‘ly’ adverbs through your ad copy as well.

.

.

That’s pretty much my take on it. And while I still love Seuss and the crazy creatures of my childhood, if you do your research and check out some of his racist drawings? You wouldn’t want children exposed to them either. It’s not erasing history, it’s learning not to repeat it.

And if that’s too serious a note to end on, here’s one more chuckle.

.

.

Ponder that image for the rest of the day.

🤣

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because there must be something left to laugh about these days.

.

.

Hey, I don’t blame them a bit.

.

.

I’m hoping this isn’t real.

I truly am.

.

.

Postponed? After a year of non stop cooking ( not to mention barn drinking ) and 4 months of forced couch potato status with a bad knee….. I’m going with cancelled until further notice.

.


.

If you haven’t watched the whole thing, take a few minutes. It totally cracked me up. And made me feel like a total Covid slacker.

.

Pandemic humor.

.

Because I’m still laughing. (Mostly at myself, but hey… you’ve got to work with what you’ve got.)

.

Now that’s what I call following the CDC guidelines.

.

.

Wow. Now I’m really glad we got another cat.

.

.

Agreed. I listen to my husband’s all the time and trust me, they would be greatly improved with a keg or two.

.

.

I vaguely remember wandering aimlessly through brick and mortar stores sometime in the distant past….

.

.

Technically this last one isn’t pandemic humor… but we’ve all spent so much time on social media lately it seemed appropriate.
