Day 2868: Looking forward to the future

When you are consumed with fear, anger, hopelessness, or helplessness, looking forward to the future is difficult.

After listening to Vice President Joe Biden’s speech last night, I am looking forward to the future again.

I am looking forward to watching his speech for a second time, here and now.

It’s wonderful looking forward to the future through tears of relief.

I am looking forward to the future and

  • tonight’s Saturday Night Live hosted by Dave Chappell,
  • a good night’s sleep,
  • dancing in the street (masked) when the results are finally announced,
  • collecting on all the bets I made of cookies and cash that Trump would lose this election, and
  • sharing the few images I captured yesterday.

Looking forward to the future when there isn’t a national sleep deficit.

Looking forward to telling you that this photo from the past of me looking forward to the future …

… was taken by my excellent ex-husband, Leon Fairbanks, who reads this blog.

Looking forward to the future of reading your comments, below.

Looking forward to the future, as always, with gratitude for all, including YOU.

Day 2863: Fingers Crossed

“Fingers Crossed” is something people keep saying and doing about tomorrow’s USA President Election Day. Why are people so nervous, superstitious, and cross? We have PTSD (Polls That Sucked Disastrously) (Polls That Skewed Democrat) (President Trump Stress Disorder) from four years ago.

I’m uncrossing my fingers, for now, so I can create this post with these photos:

Fingers crossed that people didn’t lie on the polls, because I am miserable from all the lying and dying of the last four years.

Here’s “Fingers Crossed” by Billie Eilish.

Fingers crossed I’ll be able to get some sleep this week.

Uncrossing my fingers again to thank all who help me create this blog every damn day with my fingers, including YOU!

Day 2318: How did that get there?

How did I get here, to this 2318th day of consecutive blogging, without writing a post titled “How did that get there?”  I get that there were two thousand, three hundred, and seventeen other worthy titles to share,  but I’m often wondering, “how did that get there?”

Indeed, yesterday I wondered that very thing when I looked at my calendar for the day:

I wondered, “How did that  ‘X’ get there at 3 AM?” I also wondered, “How did that extra ‘l’ get there in John Mulaney‘s name?”

How did the other new photos on my iPhone get there?

How did that get there? My niece, Victoria, and I were wondering last night how our country got here and we shared how we get back to hope and happiness by watching, among other things,  RuPaul’s Drag Race and John Mulaney stand-up routines.

Pete Davidson got to the audience last night by revealing the ending of Avengers: Endgame without issuing a spoiler alert.  It gets to me how Pete Davidson’s father, who was a New York City Firefighter, died in the September 11 attacks when Pete was just seven years old.  Pete got to that in his stand-up routine last night.

John Mulaney, in his stand-up routine, got to how he got there last night at Boston’s Wilbur Theater. He was there to raise money for My Brother’s Table, a Lynn, Massachusetts-based charity that his Nana has been volunteering at for years.   His Nana, who was in the audience, got to see her grandson give a great show.

How did John Mulaney and Pete Davidson get to be such good friends when they are SO different?  Here they are together on Saturday Night Live:

How did this Larry King interview with John Mulaney get here? It showed up right after the video above.

How did this amazing SNL skit written by John Mulaney get there?

How do readers’ comments get there?  See below.

How does gratitude get here, every day? I look for it, wherever I go.
