  1. The vaccine… well, it will be mandatory in health care settings as is the flu shot. So that takes care of all my kids except for one. If they are getting it, like you, I will too…when allowed. I am not in a high risk category, so I’m sure I will see you in the back of the line..we can chat. 👍

  2. Elevatorphobia.. I got into an elevator for the first time (post covid) the other day. Honestly, if anyone else had walked in after me, I would have walked out and cheerfully said “I’ll wait for the next one..” It’s not that I don’t think masks work…it’s that elevators don’t always.. and the idea of being stuck in one is bad enough WITHOUT COVID!

    1. I always have a few each year that I think are great, but I know last year the movies were mainly awful. Now, I’m pretty much watching either anything or nothing depending on your perspective….but yeah…though I thought 1917 and parasite were incredible

  3. #1 – MaccyD’s for sure especially when freshly hot and greasy from the fryer!
    #2 – Emma Thompson, but there are (thankfully in this 21st century) so many more I could add to that!!!!
    #3 – The old fashioned ones like Mr Twister at Elitch Gardens https://www.elitchgardens.com/plan-a-visit/park-history/
    #4 – Octopuses. Hubby introduced me to the newest scientific finds on these creatures and they’re like dolphins with (too many) arms. Seriously! And yes, the plural is correctly, ‘octopuses’!
    #5 – Anything the kids were into. and/or anyplace I can sit and ‘people watch’
    #6 – A small lunchbox sack of fritos. BTW- my baby bro is a Little Debbie afficianado! HA!
    #7 – A pair of perfectly fitting and soft and well worn jeans
    #8 – I really wanted to name our middle child “Giovannina” but Michelle won out!
    #9 – These days it’s ‘real’ oatmeal
    #10 – Does “The Incredibles” count? 😎

  5. I like ALL fast food french fries, especially now that I haven’t eaten them for a LONG time.
    Helen Mirren
    I’ll say the Big Dipper at Santa Cruz but I don’t really have a favorite.
    Seahorse. If you put two of them face to face they make a heart shape.
    Baseball is my only sport, although hockey is a newish interest.
    Well, Amanda and Rachel but Tiffany and Michelle were ones we tossed around.
    Toss up between Peanut Butter Captn. Crunch and Raisin Bran Crunch. I like my cereal crunchy and don’t use much milk in it.
    Dr. Strange

  6. Always like your posts, whether I disagree or not, you write them in a great way and I need to catch what I missed this week. For some reason days flew by me this week, not that I got any great accomplishment done, but apparently I was busy with something. LOL!
    Yes! Someone that agree with me on McDonald’s fries! My family thinks I am crazy!
    Totally agree about the Little Debbie oatmeal cream cakes too! Sooo miss them, now that I have to be gluten free!
    Love Dolphins!
    Rollercoasters make my heart race like crazy! Family loves them! Amusement parks have lost their appeal as much being that the spinning rides now get me dizzy and the rollercoasters scare me.
    Pretty girl names! Our girls name list was so long, so many great ones out there.
    Happy Friday to you!

      1. They are longish, crispy and rather than regular salt, they use seasoned salt. Short of “broasted potatoes”, the best I’ve had that weren’t home made.

  9. McDonald’s french fries definitely–they have it down to a science. Checkers fries are good once in a while, we don’t live near one anymore.
    Roller coasters..not a huge fan especially if they go around in circles.
    I love dolphins and whales.
    Sports to watch in person…basketball I would say since it is fast paced. Not really many opportunities to watch tennis in person where I live.
    Love oatmeal cream cakes.
    Cereal—Captain Crunch. I don’t buy it though because it ends up being a snack food in addition to something to eat at breakfast.

    I didn’t hate any of your posts this week–all of your COVID-19 posts are thought provoking and insightful.

  10. Uh . . . glad I missed them?

    And a fellow Cheerios fan! Yanno, there aren’t that many of us out here.

    I have a love/hate relationship with rollercoasters. I would’ve said hockey as a live sport, but having been to the US Open, it is a fantastic live sport. And you’re right, nothing beats a Mickey D’s fry.
