I still think it was a good idea. I need to learn how to speak my needs more clearly and openly, I’m not afraid to share others’ needs. This is just a downside to my being “a hardheaded woman from a long line of hardheaded women.” It is also a downside from my tendency to “John Wayne” my way through illness.
(I’m sure you know what I mean: he has been shot and is traveling across the desert with no water. Someone offers him a drink of water from their canteen and to bandage the gunshot wound. He says, “It’s just a flesh-wound. I’m fine.”)
Anyhow, Saturday I was sick enough to admit that I was sick. I stayed in bed and did NOT drink Romulan ale.
In spite of that, I couldn’t focus well enough to enjoy the movie. To top it off, only two people were able to participate. (That’s on me. I obviously did planned and advertise well.)
1 ounce vodka
1 1/2 ounces blue curaçao
1/2 ounce simple syrup
3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
1 egg white
4 drops orange blossom water
1. Fill a pint glass with ice.
2. In a cocktail shaker, combine vodka, blue curaçao, simple syrup, lemon juice, and egg white. Shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds to emulsify.
3. Pour into glass and top off with tonic.
4. Add 4 drops of orange blossom water and enjoy!
There are so many folks who need additional help with funding medical needs! I found a group who helps with that. Take a look at HELP HOPE LIVE.
They are helping me get that bed funded, and there is a lot of creativity behind this. We are doing a Star Trek Movie Marathon watch party on Facebook. We are each getting a copy of my favorite trilogy of the classic movies, watching them in comfort of our own home, and discussing it online.
You know the little plugy-iny-thingy place that connects the power plug to the laptop? It wouldn’t actually connect and the battery was lasting like… 45ish minutes. I pulled every trick I could think of. I asked all my nearby computer gurus.
The Reader’s Digest version is that it was going to cost more to fix than it was worth.
Soooooo… I have another laptop. It took me a while to get it MOSTLY configured and working the way I like, but it is Lisa-usable.
