Hey, everyone, what’s good? I can’t believe it’s Friday already, and that this month is almost over. Good thing, really. In fact, as of today, this is literally the only good thing I can think of about this month. It’s hard to really even think much about the weekend after what’s still actively going on in Ukraine, but it is weekend time. That means, it’s time to talk about our weekend plans. Since it’s gonna warm up, I’m gonna get more of my steps in to meet the 250K goal on Sweatcoin. I’m almost there now, but it’s been far too cold. There’s still ice in the backyard that even the 50-degree weather we had earlier this week couldn’t even touch. Otherwise, I’m gonna work on this and continue serving out my life sentence. These hiring managers have destroyed my life.
How ’bout you, readers? What are your weekend plans? Whatever they are, I hope they’re better than mine. If not, know that I see you, and that we’re in this together. Either way, I’d love to hear all about it, so drop ’em like they’re hot below, and let’s talk.
To ring in the weekend, I’ve found us some links to talk about, share, what have you.
This looks like a fun way to have tater tots. I think I have some left over in the freezer.
This recipe’s the only way I’ll ever make frozen hash browns. Otherwise, they’ve been giant blocks of ice that takes like a month to thaw, and then they never seem to live up to their nomenclature.
Great info about respectful parenting to file away for the future.
A bundle of journaling prompts. When I have the money, assuming someone ever decides to take a chance on me and hire me, this will be one of the things I’m getting.
Anyone here have Roku? Pluto TV has the so-called Classic Toons channel, where they air pre-Production Code Betty Boop cartoons sometimes. They should really just rename it the Barney Google Channel and be done with it, imo. Anyway, I originally found an article that stated Betty Boop was inspired by Esther Jones, also known as Baby Esther, a famous singer in the late 1920s through the 1930s. However, I’ve since found out that this article wasn’t entirely true. According to this one, Betty Boop wasn’t inspired by any one specific singer, but the influences in her creation definitely stem from Black creators of the time.
6 signs it’s time to pull up stakes and move on to other opportunities.
An interview with someone who’s been long-term unemployed. I’m stoked the interviewee finally found their next role. The sad thing is, it never had to play out like it did.
The history of creme brulee. Never knew this before!
An egg peeler with a cool design. It reminds me of these Happy Meal toys from the early 90s. Not a sponsored link, btw.
A great post about the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant baseball team and their historical scores.
Anyone here remember It Takes Two? It was one of my favorite movies as a kid, and idk how many times my mom and I watched it when we got a TV with a built-in VCR. It was way more radical for the times than I thought possible, according to this article.
This year we lost Sidney Poitier, and sad to say, we’ve also lost Maya Angelou’s son Guy. 77 is still way too young, imo. Rest in peace, dude!
We lost Bob Saget earlier this year, due to a head injury. If anyone needed more proof that head injuries are serious shyt, here it is. This post tells us what to do after it happens.
Last, but not least, a signal boost for two long-term missing children. First up is Jerry Armstrong of Hernando, MS. He was 17 years old at the time of his disappearance. The last confirmed sighting of him was in December 1977. He was last seen driving a white Pontiac LeMans, which is no longer in production. If anyone out there knows anything about Jerry’s whereabouts after December 1977, or his current whereabouts, make that call. Let’s give his relatives the answers they deserve, and let’s get him home safe to those who love him.
Next is Ganignunt Aiemsakul of Gaithersburg, MD. She was 19 at the time of her disappearance. The last confirmed sighting of her was in March 2002. According to the poster, her information was reported to the FBI’s NCIC database as a missing person under the age of 21, per the specified statute listed. If anyone out there knows anything about Ganignunt’s whereabouts after March 2002, or her current whereabouts, make that call. Let’s give her relatives the answers they deserve, and let’s get her home safe to those who love her.
On that note, the AMBER Alerts for Kennedy Hoyle and Summer Wells are still ongoing. Like with Jerry and Ganignunt, I’m operating under the assumption that both of these girls are still alive, until proven otherwise from reputable sources. Let’s get Kennedy and Summer home safe, ASAP.
