Random News, March 7th

Discussing things that happened…

Time to talk about 5 things that’ve happened and state my random opinion about them:

  1. All I will mention about the Coronavirus:
    A) WASH YOUR HANDS, don’t focus on face masks. Face masks are made for those who ARE sick to stop the spread.
    B) Babies, older folks, and those with weak immune systems are at the highest risk. If you are none of these and you feel sick: STAY HOME, DRINK FLUIDS, and SLEEP. You will survive. Don’t be one who spreads it further.
    C) DON’T PANIC!!! The media is not doing a good job keeping folks calm. But don’t treat this like a hurricane and stock up on items. It doesn’t matter!
  2. Onision: I’ve been avoiding talking about this…MOSTLY because I doubt a lot of people who read this blog even know about this….but here I go. YouTuber Onision is in trouble….sort of. There have been years of accusations that he is a predator. He’s had girls under 17/18 years old live in his house with his husband. He claims he did nothing sexual with them. But once they turned a legal age, the girls claim he pressured them into sexual acts. There are also accusations that Onision’s husband grooms underage girls and is the one who brings the girls into the house. I must emphasize: THESE ARE ALL ALLEGATIONS AND HAVE NOT BEEN PROVEN TRUE OR FALSE IN A COURT! However….Chris Hansen has interviewed pretty much every woman who has ever been involved with Onision….and they can’t ALL be liars…Anybut, I’m no good at providing all of the information because some channels have been following this story for years. If you want a rabbit hole to fall down, look this up on YouTube. It’s a pretty wild ride…..OH! And he apparently tried to start his own religion when he was 17 years old…weird guy.
    EDIT: Originally I said he tried to start his own CULT, but he actually tried to start his own RELIGION. I updated the info above.
  3. Alex Trebek: Some goodish news. Alex Trebek announced this week he has made it to the one year survival mark for his cancer. The one year survival rate is 18%, so this is good news. It doesn’t mean he’s clear. The two year survival rate is 7%. I hope in one year, I get to put a similar post in the news post…but it’s too early to say.
  4. Viral Video: Have any of you seen the viral video(s) by a french…YouTuber? TikToker? I’m not 100% sure which video service he was using, but apparently (and there’s still debate on whether this is fake or not) a French man filled his tub with those Orbeez things. Orbeez are these little balls that grow larger when placed in water. Anybut, this man was doing a video where he filled his bathtub with these Orbeez. When he ended his little video and tried to clean up, he pulled the plug on his tub to let the Orbeez go down the drain. First off, stupid idea. Orbeez are polymer gel balls. Don’t send them down the drain. Second off, if you have enough to fill a bathtub, DON’T SEND THEM DOWN THE DRAIN.
    And what do you think happened? Allegedly, the small balls started coming out of the man’s toilet and sink. It even ruined the plumbing of his neighbors and the entire city sewers. And apparently, police are looking for the one responsible….though if people just sent the video too tip them off, problem solved. The case is still out whether this is a real video or fake video.
  5. Rupaul’s Drag Race: FRESH NEWS!! Apparently, one of the drag queens from the new 12th season of RPDR has been disqualified as of Friday, March 6th. The drag queen in question is Sherry Pie (Joey Gugliemelli). Buzzfeed News reported on Thursday, March 5th, that Gugliemelli catfished young actors by convincing them he was a casting director. He requested audition tapes including embarrassing acts including the young actors doing or saying degrading things. One actor even claims to have agreed to pleasure himself on video. Sherry Pie has officially been disqualified and will not be included in the Grand Finale. In a Facebook post, Gugliemelli apologized for his actions writing, “I truly apologize to everyone I have hurt with my actions. I also want to say how sorry I am to my sisters of season 12 and honestly the whole network and production company.”

And that was 5 random news stories.

Anybut, thank you for joining me.

These were MY opinions on each. Your opinions may be different and that’s fine. Now on to more random things!!

MIA

I apologize for being MIA…. even more so than usual.

A very large thing has happened in my personal life that is taking all of my attention and emotional support to get through.

It’s not something that explicitly happened to ME but a very dear, close friend. And nothing is more import to me than my family and my friends.

I will still post random news on Saturday. But until this thing is calmed down… I will be even more sporadic in posting.

BUT!! I WILL still be posting. And hopefully this thing will be calmed down soon.

Cuz rehearsals for my next show start in less than 2 weeks…..and then I’m on a cruise ship/writer’s conference.

Anybut, I guess this has been a random update.

Random Food Update

Okay, this may be really sad…

I’ve heard as you grow older you naturally become lactose intolerant…and I think I am. Food and drinks with dairy are starting to disagree with me on more frequent occasions.

I hope I’m wrong….because I freaking LOVE cheese!!

This has been a random food update.

Random News 1/11

Discussing things that happened…

Time to talk about 5 things that’ve happened and state my random opinion about them:

  1. The royal family “drama”? Okay, true story…….I really don’t understand this as I am NOT all that interested, really, in the English royal family. A lot of Americans are….I’m not. HOWEVER!!! From what I’ve gathered…okay. I get it. Meghan and Harry don’t want to be royals anymore. They want to live half their time in Canada. They didn’t discuss this with his father or with the Queen…I GET IT!! The English people are mad. But at the same time, he was already the wild child. Is ANYONE really surprised by this?
  2. CATS: Okay I PROMISE this is the last time I mention CATS in my random news…..but all of the reviews on YouTube, in articles, and from people I know about it are giving me LIFE!! If you haven’t seen or read any of them….seek out the reviews. They are AMAZING!!
  3. The fires in Australia are still burning. As someone who lives in California and has had friends affected by the yearly fires here….this is scary and sad. This is on a scale far larger than anything in California and it’s tragic how little is being done to help. To be fair, help is growing, but it took weeks for many to even HEAR about this. I remember when Notre Dame was on fire and how quickly everyone (including me) jumped to help.
  4. Awkwafina wins Best Actress Award in a Comedy at the Golden Globes and makes history! She is the first Asian American actress to win the award and I for one say: CONGRATULATIONS!!
  5. Rush drummer Neil Peart passed away on Tuesday at the age of 67. I’m not that huge of a Rush fan, but I like a number of their songs. But it’s always sad when anyone who’s affected many lives passes away.

And that was 5 random news stories.

Anybut, thank you for joining me.

These were MY opinions on each. Your opinions may be different and that’s fine. Now on to more random things!!

Random Food Update

I am currently obsessed with pudding…

It’s become a problem.

Chocolate and vanilla….not even the swirl, just the two flavors on their own.

It always reminds me of the Rugrats episode where Angelica is staying with Tommy’s family and has a broken leg. You know the scene, where Stu questions his life as he makes pudding at 2 or 3 in the morning.

I feel like Stu….except I didn’t make my own pudding.

This has been a random food update.

Brain Activity

I was trying to be very good last night…

I was going to bed before 1 in the morning. I had started driftin off when my brain decided, “Hey! Remember that thing you’ve been trying to do for days? I’m ready now!”

Some people would ignore this and continue into dreamland…but I knew if I did that…I would forget everything.

So I got up, turned on my computer and did some late night work. My cat joined me for a bit…more out of annoyed confusion as to why I was still awake…and I got it all done.

Hooray! And it only took me until 3 in the morning…yaaaay…

Anybut, one thing off my list before the end of the year.

Snowy Mountain…Snowy Mountain

Anybody else read that title like “Can-dy Moun-tain. Can-dy Moun-tain”…like the unicorns from that old Charlie the unicorn video? Just me? Okay.

Anybut, the good thing about the rainy days in Southern California:

fullsizeoutput_606

SNOWY MOUNTAINS!!!

The closest I get to snow every year.

Here’s another:

fullsizeoutput_607

Not as pretty color wise, but a little clearer.

YAY!!

But it did rain again after I took these pictures and got chilly so….boo.

Thought this would also be fitting as a December 1st post so there’s that, too.

Sooooo I Googled Myself

Not out of any narcissistic need to find myself…

I was just curious to see what others HONORED to bear my name have done with their lives!! (In case you’re new here….this is me being overdramatic for no reason)

Anybut, I learned a lot. I MAY just be the least successful person with my name. I saw 2 doctors, a few nurses, a graphic designer, a real estate agent, and a few others who still came up in the search before me.

The most interesting thing, though? 2 of them lived in Indiana, 2 of them are from Illinois (one of whom was born and raised in Chicago where one of my closest friends was also born and raised), and another was from Arizona. I don’t remember where any others were from cause I wasn’t clicking on their information. I’d read the google search results and move on.

I mean, so many of me living so close together and we never bumped into each other……

OH WAIT!!! That’s a lie! I did meet someone with my name when I worked at Barnes & Noble. Not making this up. I literally met a woman with my name who was a teacher and had our Educator’s card (or was it just the Membership card?) AND was a regular….

But I never had the courage to tell her that we had the same name…I thought that was weird and didn’t want to freak her out…..at least freak her out more than me staring at her trying to transmit the information using our same name connection…….that’s a thing, right?

Fun fact: She looked nothing like me. Good for her.
