Well, Oregon voted to legalize meth & I think that pretty much sums up the election. Actually, slow clap for Oregon – I don’t know if I have talked about it before but I have a very liberal attitude towards drugs. They should be legalized, regulated & taxed. I think this would reduce overdoses & it would take a lot of money & power away from gangs & cartels. In my opinion, it would also to help destigmatize conversations around addiction to these substances.
Anyway, enough election talk – I am so over this election & it sounds like we have a long slog ahead of us. In ancient Egypt, pharaohs had to engage in physical tests of strength to prove that they were strong, worthy leaders. Pestilence, famine & overall poor quality of life would be attributed to a weakling pharaoh. So, let’s do it – let’s end this shit today. Get both of these demented old fools out to Lambeau Stadium & put them to the test. In fact, everyone currently holding a political position – let’s see your fastest mile. That would certainly cull some of the detritus. Society is already regressing, it’s not like it’s that crazy of an idea.
Christmas – let’s talk about it, I think I’m going Scandinavian this year. I didn’t actually know that until I posted some photos on Instagram of these trees I found & a lovely gal pointed this out. Now though, I am seeing lots of this minimalist trend and I’m into it. Here are a few items that I recently spotted at IKEA. I am finding the clean lines & simplistic designs very appealing – it’s just Christmas-y enough.
I’m torn though because I have loads of Christmas ‘nostalgia’ pieces with pinks & blues, I love a 50’s inspired Christmas. I’m sure what will happen is that I will go jewel tones & gold in my living room, Scandinavian in the spare bedroom & nostalgia in my bedroom. I love Christmas decorations, the actual holiday is kind of a throw away for me since I’ve never been able to figure out why so many non-Christians celebrate a holiday with very religious overtones. Given the pandemic that I am sure will still be raging come Christmas, I’m not sure how merry of a holiday it will be. There won’t be any hustle or bustle this year, holiday parties – things that I didn’t even know I would miss, I am already missing. One of my favorite things to do is bake a disgusting amount of cookies for the office, for my neighbors, for pretty much anyone & I wonder if that will be permissible this year? Is Thanksgiving cancelled? I just assumed it was, I’ve never celebrated the holiday anyway but let me know.
I hope that you are happy, healthy & just doing the best you can. If you are an American, I hope that you aren’t too anxious about the current election status – hang in there!
