#KamalaHarris vs. #Trump

I can *NOT* even BELIEVE that someone would have the nerve to shame Kamala and call her a bad influence for some alleged affair with a married man while praising a president who cheated on, at least, two of his THREE wives… one of whom was pregnant while he was doing it with a PORN STAR; This doesn’t even cover his open bragging about sexually assaulting women because he can, the 26 official accusations by women about his doing just that (but, yeah, Joe’s a “hair sniffer”) or Trump’s close ties to, at least, two sex~trafficking child molesters one of whom he “wishes the very best”— all of this while Kamala actually has spent her career prosecuting predators like them. Don’t let your daughters be like her though… and God help them if they date sons who were groomed to idolize Trump’s behavior. Put your stones away before your glass house shatters.

I voted!🇺🇸🤗🎉

Let me tell you how excited I was to discover that this mask and bow set was delivered to me, days earlier than expected, and only HOURS before I planned to vote! The surprise was far more sweet due to the fabulous packaging to go along with the lovely work of @immyhmillinery. I felt like I got an early holiday gift!🤗

I must also shout~out @joanieclothing who made my new favorite sweater/ t-shirt (so soft) and tipped me off about Immy’s accessories (the most comfortable mask I’ve worn thanks to what seems like nylon around the ears).

None of this would be possible if not for fictional character, Sean, on Coronation Street who was rocking this top on the show.

P.S. Nocturnal me decided to enjoy the wee hours of the morning after my late shift at work then, go to the polls at 6am. It worked out well as I was in and out of there in around 40 minutes.

When the Crazies Start Knocking at Your Door

This could be partially down to 2020 and #CoronaPalooza, but I’m thinking that I must be getting better with age because for the first time in ALL of MY DECADES I have triggered jealous, insecure, female trolls (THREE in two years) to come out of the woodwork to stalk and hassle me, a STRANGER, for simply existing at one point or another (with absolutely NO FOUL PLAY) in the lives of two men that we have in common (one new bitch who has the leftovers of my ex and two other bitches complaining about another man that they allegedly haven’t wanted in years, but mad anyway ‘cause they apparently hate that he got an upgrade💅🏽). Oh… and what’s with them all having Central/ Eastern European/ Slavic ancestry… including the States-born wretch?🤔

Besides this fu€%ery, I’ve had three sugar*daddies contact me on Instagram… and now, this chick. I’m not into chicks, but do appreciate that her fake profile picture is, at least, attractive.

😆🤦🏽‍♀️💁🏽‍♀️ #WHATtheFUCK!!!?

Fair~Weather Friends

Let me tell you when you learn who your real friends are, in times of controversy; My now former friend of 16 years, who was my bridesmaid, hosted my bridal shower, and lent me her deceased mother’s earrings for my wedding, someone whom I supported emotionally when she crossed over the edge to a nervous, suicidal breakdown… a Jewish Latina who is easily perceived as “white” just blocked me because I had the nerve to openly call her out on her silence during this uprise about the violence towards black people. In her defense, my timing ended up being inappropriate which I acknowledged after she brought to my attention that she had flown to the side of a friend whose brother had a massive stroke and was also making a care package for someone else in ICU— all loving, honorable things. I stood by what I said, however, because this person, a writer, no longer in the news business or with restrictions on voicing her opinion… with a large social media platform to influence others has always stayed silent during previous crises when she didn’t have the excuse of being distracted or newly engaged. All she said was that she chooses to use her platform for personal sharing which yes, is her business to do, but like I said to her, “Remember, after they come for me, they’ll come for you.” I would think that someone who has ties to the holocaust would get that. I guess, not. Have fun in your bubble. Let’s hope that it doesn’t burst… or maybe, it should for a reality check. Ciao!

Happy Birthday in Heaven, Mommy!

I know that you would’ve been proud of and worried for all of your fellow Registered Nurses and the rest of the brave healthcare providers and frontline workers fighting the good fight. You’d also be cursing out that “BLASTED ASS” in the White House with your Trini accent. 😆💝

PART 2 of 2 ~ SURVIVAL “STEW vs. SOUP” ~ LOCKDOWN LEFTOVERS (4/5/2020) ~

PART 2 of 2 ~ SURVIVAL “STEW vs. SOUP” ~ LOCKDOWN LEFTOVERS (4/5/2020) ~

Yeah, I’m late with this, but it’s not like I was holding you up from going somewhere!

😆😘

ANYWAY…

As I had mentioned in my previous post, my quinoa took over the illness~preventing concoction that I made and turned it into stew instead of soup—NOT a PROBLEM because that just meant that I could extend my meal longer when it got low by adding more water, seasoning, vegetables (on their last legs), and transform it into a thinner consistency… which is what happened in Part 2 of my survival food chronicles; On around day four, I was down to approximately two scoops left in my pot of stew so, decided to reinvent my meal to break the monotony by not only turning it into soup, but also, CHANGING its FLAVOR! I went through my inventory and came up with CURRIED TOFU! Yes, another great way to clear your nasal passages and more!

I heated up some extra~virgin coconut oil in a separate pan then, sautéed yellow curry powder, cumin powder, black pepper, Himalayan salt (which I rarely use) to enhance their flavors then, added a dab of honey to cut the bitterness, some tofu that was about to expire, and onions into the mix for a proper stir~fry party. When I was finished, I spooned it into my pot of former quinoa stew~officially~turned~soup.

On that note—

I’ve discovered that quinoa is really great about not getting mushy like rice or pasta might if left to soak in liquids for long periods of time. This is a real game~changer for me, to be able to have a food staple transition into multiple dishes while on a budget.

Depending on how daring you are, I’d suggest altering the flavors to keep things lively while limited by maybe, adding sour cream, tzatziki sauce (my favorite) or what I had on hand, vegan mayonnaise for a richer, creamier taste.

(Sorry, I scarfed down the creamy goodness before taking a pic.)

Oh yeah, when I wanted a more hearty soup, I sprinkled in some rigatoni pasta to do the trick.

Next time, I’ll be working on this curry dish (sans the soup) from scratch and adding newly purchased chick peas, potatoes, and turmeric to join forces with the curry and cumin. I might get fancy and buy a can of Goya’s crema de coco, too, like Mommy used to do with other tasty meals. ☺️

Gift~Giving during the Coronavirus Season

All hail the ultra~generous, talented, and SPIC(e)Y Cori McDermott❣️

I had the pleasure of meeting this firecracker while living in Colorado.

During this #CoronaCraze, she has been finding ways to stay zen while under quarantine. One method has been creating handmade jewelry.

Out of the goodness of her heart, she has been gifting her special pieces to friends and family. Fortunately, I made the cut. So, Ms. Fabulousness sent me goodies in my favorite stone, labradorite. One of my new toys is an eyeglass chain, featuring my beloved stone with spinel accents.

I must say that I’ve never thought about putting my glasses on a chain of sorts, but am discovering that this beautiful, “gemified” accessory is really a game~changer for me as I’m near~sighted (great at reading fine~print) with a preference for the blur of life (or “Monet vision”) for things afar… so, as a result, would rather just have my glasses on standby instead of wearing them all of the time; The disadvantage, particularly while onsite at work, is that I tend to realize that I need them for something while they’re sitting on my work station and I’m on the other side of the building.

But I digress…

Not only did I get the cool specs chain, but also, an emerald & labradorite necklace and aventurine & labradorite bracelet❣️🤗

To TOP it OFF, Cori sent me additional jewelry to send to healthcare/ essential workers during this pandemic to show her appreciation!

She has sent me two gorgeous necklaces, one made of lava and jasper… and the other, of amethyst and quartz; They will make their way to the right owners in a timely fashion.

Oh yeah… and there’s MORE!!!

This woman even sent my baby, Chloe, a burlap bag of catnip from her cool business, Purr Say (purrsay.com)!

Chloe is NOT a jumper, but when I happened to place the burlap bag on top of her litter box hut, I discovered that she had scoped it and hopped up to nuzzle away at her new toy!🤗

THANK YOU, CORI❣️❣️❣️

Midnight Snacking Gets Serious

So, I still owe you part two of my survival stew~turned~leftover soup, but just had to share my random creation, made last night, right before doing an overnight shift (a benefit of now mostly working remotely)!

On Friday, I ventured out of the house for the first time in eleven days only to discover that the natives… mainly carnivores… got greedy and raided “my” tofu section at ShopRite. 🤨 Hell, they raided most of the produce section!

The only thing aside from my Beyond Meat products available were two types of seasoned jackfruit, chili~lime and “bar~b~que”. I got both and decided that I’d start with the barbecue flavor with that pulled pork effect and whip up something with one of the only few things plentiful on the grocery store’s display, sweet potatoes.

Before roasting the potatoes, I seasoned them with the usual garlic, rosemary, black pepper, and basil-infused olive oil. This time though, I put a little dollop of honey (I don’t buy sugar) to cut the possible bitterness… something that the jackfruit definitely ended up having which was quickly remedied with sweetness which made the barbecue sauce much better.

I was STUFFED and quite proud of myself for my meal being so tender and flavorful with decent presentation!🤗

Happy Holidays❣️
