Neighbors? Anything but Bores on Nextdoor

Neighbors? Anything but Bores on Nextdoor

Neighbors Nextdoor

 

NEIGHBOR is defined as

One who lives near or next to another

A fellow human

A fellow human! This covers every imaginable sort of person of interest under the sun.

Every stripe and strain from “Miss Congeniality” to “FBI’s Most Wanted”

Saints, sinners, helpers,

Freaks, fools and tools,

Lovers and haters.

AND they are all on the online Nextdoor platform – the popular social networking service for neighborhoods.

Nextdoor seems to have an attraction for the “Karens” and the trolls.

Love Thy Neighbor

 

What happened to the sweet souls who bake chocolate chip cookies and drop them off at your front door to welcome you to the ‘hood?

Online we have the cranks who grapple, clash, and lock horns at the drop of a cup of sugar.

The obsessives with numerous photos of their landscaping and house upgrades, and holiday decorations. Halloween anybody? Are you ready?

Petty arguments abound. Name calling is common — “A*s*o*l*e” being the favorite endearment 🙂

Lewd photos and snarky comments are posted in response to your heartfelt posts about your beloved cat.

Hopefully, the body count on Nextdoor doesn’t escalate to the height of the

Hatfield and McCoy Feud on The History Channel

There’s even a hilarious Twitter stream that documents some of the more noteworthy (insane) posts.

Maybe it can be more like “You’ve Got a Friend In Me”

 

 

It’s always a good time to buy books on Amazon !!!

Freedom: My Dream Job is a Remote Job

1 May

My Dream Job is A Remote Job

Yippee Yay!

Now that I’m working my forever dream job remotely from home…

I am free!  Free at last!

Riding the Freedom Choo-choo

While collecting a chunky paycheck

And maintaining my life work play goof off balance.

 

Dream Job remote Humor

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Now That I Work Remote I Can…

 

  • Breastfeed my toddler twins fifteen times a day – each!  Ouch. Ouch.

 

  • Reach Level 8500 of Candy Crush Saga.  And you thought Skittles and M & M’s were addicting?

 

  • Score a load of laundered moolah in bitcoin trades. Too late?

 

  • Be a crypto consultant, day trader and night owl. Never too late.

 

  • Learn to play the saxophone while pretending to be in boring business meetings. So cool 🙂

 

  • Cook gourmet lunches for friends and family. Yum Yum.

 

  • Take my diva cat for lengthy acupuncture treatments and manicures while “working.” Wink, Wink!

 

  • Meet the neighbors. Why not?

 

  • Nap whenever I want! Like right now.

 

  • Have sex all day. They don’t call it Zoom for nothing.

 

  • Save money on gas, wheels, personal grooming and a presentable wardrobe.  I may look homeless, but I’ll be rich.

 

  • Every day, I can ditch the heels, Spandex and bra and wear my comfy clothes. Highly conducive to napping.

 

  • Experiment with acid and magic mushrooms before my annual job review.  Helps to focus? On what?

 

  • Go on vacation somewhere, anywhere, anytime.  The real goal!

 

Dream On!

7 REALLY FUN THINGS TO DO WHILE STUCK AT HOME

 

 

  • Think outside the breadbox. Don’t just bake bread or break bread – why not cake the bread?  Forget the flour and eggs.  Jack up the brown sugar, molasses, vanilla extract and cinnamon. Yum.

Homemade Cinnamon Bread

 

  • Study The Kama Sutra.  Surprise your spouse with a pop quiz.

 

  • Live-stream your cat’s DIY pedicure. Document his lack of cooperation and that unmistakable disdain in his eyes. Beware a cat scorned. Remember – there’s a big, fat “ME” in “MEOW.”

  • Host a Virtual Pity Party. Drown yourself in cheap wine and sad clown music. Indulge.

 

  • Get pregnant or get another dog. Or both. The more the merrier. Misery loves company.

 

  • Learn How To Make People Laugh!

 

“Apart from paracetamol, laughter is still the best medicine. If you’ve always dreamed of performing at your local stand-up night, now’s the ideal time to hone those gags. Chicago’s legendary Second City Training Center may be closed, but it’s offering an expanded series of classes online covering everything from performing voiceovers to writing for TV. Most affordable, though, are its $25 drop-in improv and stand-up classes. Sign up and give those one-liners a test run.”

Lessons: Evacuating from an Active Wildfire Zone

30 Nov

There are many lessons to be learned when evacuating from an active wildfire zone.

Wildfire

“Wind’s in the East…mist coming in.

Like something is brewing, about to begin.

Can’t put my finger…on what lies in store, but I fear what’s to happen all happened before.”

– Bert in Mary Poppins

Dick Van Dyke Barb Best

 

 

Breathe

Remember to breathe!  But only with a N95 respirator mask so you can screen out hazardous gases such as carbon monoxide, formaldehyde, acrolein, and random farts.

Soot happens. You’ll likely resemble Dick Van Dyke as Bert the chimney sweeper in Mary Poppins.

Technology: Because You Can

Technology is amazing.

Timesaving.

Stimulating.

Empowering.

Entertaining.

Seductive.

Technology: Because You Can

BUT…

  • Must you count every step you take? Fascinating at first, mundane after a week.

 

  • Do you desire a smart house? If you want to be surrounded by a superior intelligence – get a cat!

 

  • Seriously… do you need a motion-activated, glowing LED illuminated toilet seat?

Noise!

It is like awesome that we have this community chat group to share our feelings. Peace, love and friendship to all.

Imagine my consternation when lounging on my balcony this morning, enjoying the gentle rays of the sun, sipping my artisinal chai tea…

… when an eardrum-piercing racket made my breakfast ritual – let alone any silent prayer and meditation – impossible.

My emotional support chicken was traumatized. This is wrong, as it is my job to be traumatized. […]

Are you any FUN?

FUNBarbBestHumor

Or are you too busy? Do you forget to be playful?

Gee, quizzes are really fun, don’t ya think?

This one’s for you.

True or False?

  • I do not whistle while I work. I do not whistle while I play. Heck, not even when I shower.

 

  • I enjoy shopping for athletic socks, Q-Tips, and emergency kits. Whoopee!

 

  • My dog won’t play with me. Apparently the snooty cat is more fun.

 

  • Sadly, I do not own a set of marshmallow roasting forks, let alone use them on a regular basis.

 

  • The only party I’ll go to is a pity party. And, yes I’ll cry if I want to.

 

  • My idea of a vacation is four days at the hospital for elective gall bladder surgery.

A Message From Your CAT

28 Mar

 

This is a message (heh, a threat you say?) from me, your imperious cat.

CATastrophe

Planning on leaving me (your cherished feline pet) at home while you go on a business trip or (how dare you) a fancy vacation is a provocation at best, and, at worst, an act of war.

Vacation? A Message from Your Cat

    Do I look pleased?

 

May I remind you… Actions have consequences!
