That gave my my first genuine laugh in weeks. Great fun, great detail. I'd love to send them a fruit basket or something.

Only after clicking the link did I realize I could have been staring at a recreation of the Nevermind cover.

The US Sun??? WTF? Now proudly bringing the UK vermin to the US? Rupert Murdoch is everything that is wrong with modern politics. First he cashes on his Fox hosts labelling covid-19 as a hoax, and now this. He tried to destroy the EU, he's trying to destroy the US. Aaargh!!!

That sounds OK. I hope I remain healthy and independent until I die suddenly, in my sleep.

/But they're both excellent choices

indeed this is awesome.  i wish all of the sequestered meemaws and zaydes could have a guy like this one.  fun people are fun, and creativity in a crisis is an amazing coping skill.

i could wish it hadn't been a "Sun" link tho- goddamthey have the most disgusting sidebars of any rag ever, ever, worse even than the "SexSlaver & BumFights Weekly Tribune"

You don't want to see Whipped Cream & Other Delights - the1965 album by Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass, do YOU?!

See, here's the thing. I'm a woman. That means I'm going to live longer than you and in my family, women last into their 90s or 100s. There is no way in creation that I am going to make it that long without some cute young immigrant goddess making sure I did not leave the burner on overnight or that I took my meds, both in the morning and the evening. Those homes are great. At least the mixed living ones are. You have your own apartment while you are able to cook and keep up with chores, and then you can transfer into a room with a higher level of care if and when that's appropriate. I'm 53. That means I'm theoretically middle-aged (for my family at least). My mam is 74 (almost 75) and she is a maniac. She is insanely active. She travels, or did before the plague, and runs around like a lunatic. I love running my own household, but I am not going to put up a fuss when I need help.

I want to come for Nirvana about as much as I want a hole in my head.

Oh, Nevermind.

Does any UK Farker have a recommendation for hamper sites? M&S have a few for delivery in the £20 range.

Loved this so much! This has totally set the tone for how I want my day to be: light, happy, fun, and carefree. That Clash cover is fantastic. Happy Monday, fellow Farkers / Farkettes!
