Prayer and 7-11

It’s been a strange week, so much weirdness, first off, Hello China! I hope your week has gone well and your many hits to my blog has given you good incite to a 57 year old menopausal American woman.

Last night I had the most amazing evening, I went to a women’s prayer meeting at a lovely restaurant. If you are ever in Plano, TX I highly recommend Toulouse in West Plano. Excellent service and fantastic food, get the brie, you will not be sorry.

We had a guest speaker, Ronnie, who is a beautiful 86 year old woman that gave her testimony. She was born to Jewish parents, met a man that would become her husband, he led her to Jesus. Her family disowned her and she and her husband traveled the world ministering to people. 

We had an incredible prayer session in our private room at the restaurant and I met some strong prayer warriors.

It was a late night and I needed to stop and get cream for my morning coffee, I didn’t know that all stores close at 11pm now. Our world is collapsing as we know it, so I decide to stop at 7-11, as it was the only thing open and get some milk for my coffee.

I walked in and there was a man standing there that said hello, rather loudly. I said hello back and nice sweatshirt, it was OU, I had no choice.

When I came back to the register to pay for my things he told the cashier he was paying for mine. I protested, he insisted, since he was drunk out of his mind I decided not to argue.

He then said I bet you don’t even like the Sooners, I laughed and said I was born in Oklahoma and I LOVE the Sooners. It is an unhealthy love, but focus, that is not the point of this story.

He then asks me if I will wait for him outside, I look at the clerk as if to say what is happening. She gave me a signal that said he was harmless so I agreed.

He walked outside and began rambling, as only the drunk do, and asked me if I was a teacher. Befuddled, I said no, he said oh you look like a giant nerd. 

I said yes, I am, as I am very proud of that, he then proceeded to tell me I was a hot chick, to which I burst out laughing.

He asked if I was single, I said no, because technically, he didn’t say romantically and I have a dog and two cats at home.

He then proceeds to tell me he just retired and was celebrating and bought a new vehicle. And then says since I am not available he would go back in and hit on the 7-11 girl. His words, not mine, I wished him luck and thanked him for purchasing my items.

I don’t even know what is happening in this world, Vladimir Putin is making more sense than Joe Biden and strange drunk men are hitting on me at a convenience store.

Stay safe out there folks, I do believe it is time for the aliens to arrive.

Justice League and Gas Prices

Hey China! What’s up today? I thought I would get our greeting out of the way since you are on my blog every day, several times a day.

Welcome to another day of high gas prices, higher taxes, higher food prices and well higher everything except salaries. I’m not talking about the minimum wage, that should not be $15.00. I’ll tell you why, minimum wage was never supposed to be there for someone to stay forever. It is minimum for a reason, it is an entry level job that you move up from. 

Oh well, it is not my decision, we the people have no say in any of it, we should, as we are, we the people. But there is so much corruption in charge, I pray it all gets exposed before Tess is an adult.

I saw my brilliant hair stylist this week, I am still purple haired and I love it so much. Something interesting was said about it on Facebook, we all know that I love a good comment on social media.

A woman said she wasn’t brave enough to do what I did and that basically her husband would be opposed. I didn’t write my initial response, which was why is he making decisions about your hair. I just put it’s a good thing I don’t have one of those.

I will tell you all this, that would not have deterred me, it’s my hair, I get to do what I want with my hair. I get that some women do everything to please their husbands which includes what they do to their hair. I am not one of those, the only person I ever considered in any hair decisions was my mom. However, that was when I was a teenager and reliant on her and my dad for, well, everything. So when she said I couldn’t have purple hair I abided by that, but if she were alive today, I would still do it. Why you ask, good question, because I live in my own home and pay my own bills. See how brave I am now that she is no longer here to tell me no.

This week is a good week streaming wise, we have Zach Snyder’s Justice League, which is fantastic. I mean it gave so much more nuance and explanations as to what was happening and why. Don’t get me wrong, I do love Joss Whedon (innocent until proven guilty) however he made a mess out of Justice League. The story made no sense, the characters were acting out of, well, character and I was just confused.

This version makes me want to see more, so much more, be prepared, it is 4 hours long. Stretch, plan snacks, and bathroom breaks.

Next up is Flacon and Winter Soldier on Disney+, first episode is setting things up. I suggest sticking with it, WandaVision delivered, this will as well.

I also have seen The Mighty Ducks have a show, I will be checking that out as well. I loved the movies, they were so fun and so heartwarming. 

I don’t have a lot, well I do, but you know, China is watching. Hey China!

As usual any comments, questions or criticisms can be left here or sent to me at angie@angieworld.com. I have to go now as I have to get gas and it is going to make me cry.

Face Freedom

Here I sit, waiting for my car to be inspected so I can renew my tags. Here I sit with a face free from covering. I am so happy, I am also happy to being wearing a face full of makeup.

I became a little lazy this past year, why wear makeup under a mask. And the mask would just rub it off anyway. Forget lipstick, can you imagine, a red spot on a mask.

I love wearing makeup, I have experimented with it since I was 12. With parents semi-approval since 16. I remember my first eyeshadow pallet. Filled with blues, yellow and green. Don’t judge it was the ‘70’s, blue eyeshadow was prerequisite for any event.

I went to Target yesterday with a newly freed face. I seriously cannot tell you how happy this makes me. The check out clerk told me he wished he could ditch his. After all he works behind plexiglass.

I also still refuse to take that vaccine, I will say it again, I have a healthy immune system, why on earth would I mess that up with an untried vaccine. The last time I was sick was January 2020. I do believe it was Covid because the symptoms were exactly the same. It wasn’t the flu, it wasn’t a cold and no I am not going to allow anyone to test my antibodies. They’re mine, I’m keeping them to myself.

I had lunch last weekend with Alex and Elicia, it was at a Mediterranean restaurant. It was so good, it was a buffet and they did ask that we wear masks and gloves when getting our food. That is understandable, I personally think buffets should have been this way all along. People are gross.

While I am on the subject, what adult on planet earth had to be told they needed to wash their hands after going to the bathroom?? Please, I need to know, this is something one learns in preschool. If I know you and you had not been washing your hands before all of this I need to know.

I hope you all have a great day and if you are in the great state of Texas, enjoy your American freedom.

As usual, especially the China hits to my blog, if you have any questions, comments or criticisms you can leave it here or send it to me at angie@angieworld.com.

God Bless Texas

Hello China! I see you have come to visit quite a few times, welcome, I hope you learn incredibly interesting things from my blog.

Yesterday I did something incredibly stupid, it was my last break of the day and I was getting ready to take Storm for a walk. I grab the keys and without thinking opened the door, with no leash on said dog. 

I was instantly horrified, she is a Husky, she is a runner! What to do, I grabbed the leash and went after her, you can’t run because she thinks that is a game. So I said Storm, very forcefully, because we know children listen to that tone, she stopped, turned and looked at me. Then continued on her merry jaunt, she crossed the street, I thought to myself “I am going to have to call work and tell them I won’t be coming back today because I am chasing a dog.” I’m sure that would have gone over well.

I yelled TREAT, she stopped, turned around, trotted past me and went to my front door and sat down.

I was floored, I quickly gathered my wits and put her leash on her and we went for our walk.

I don’t know where my head was but it was not in the game. I finished my work day with no other incidents.

I live in Texas, it is a great place to be, I am very happy we have a Governor that has common sense. Texas is open 100% and no more mask mandates. As of March 10, 2021 we will be free Americans once more. 

I will not be wearing a mask and I will not be taking that vaccine. Any of them, you see, I have a healthy immune system, the masks and the vaccines do not help with a healthy immune system. In fact they work the opposite, they hurt a healthy immune system. So Sam I am, I will not wear them, I will not partake, I will remain free.

Here is my thing, so many people are fearful, so many Christians are fearful. We are commanded by Christ not to be fearful and trust in the Lord. Deuteronomy 31:8 “He will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraiddo not be discouraged.” Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”.

So why are Christians running around fearing a virus that has a 99.5% survival rate? And why were people not fearing the flu? Why were people not washing their hands before this? So many question, not many answers, but I do know what my answer is. FREEDOM. That is my answer, and I will enjoy it, all of it, I do not fear what I cannot control. All I can control is me, for me I don’t fear Covid-19, I had it in the very beginning of this debacle, they didn’t even know what it was. I literally felt the worst I have ever felt in my life and it took me a while to get my strength back. But because I have a healthy immune system I survived. My brother did not, however he had Alzheimers and if he had caught the flu or developed pneumonia the end result would have been the same. I know without one doubt he is in Heaven telling stories right now. He was such a great story teller.

I digress, no more face masks and no vaccine for me, however, if you want to get the vaccine or still wear a face mask I will not judge you.

That is your choice, choice being the operative word, we all make choices, my choice is my business, your choice is your business.

God Bless Texas, the land of the free is coming back and I cannot wait! I heard Joe Biden called us all Neanderthals, I am a proud neanderthal if that is the case. Due to his descent into dementia, tomorrow he won’t remember he called us that, so there’s that.

Menopause Rage and Cancel Culture

Menopause rage is a real thing, irrational menopause rage. Something as simple as an innocuous comment on a stupid app. I’m not going to say what set me off, I’m just going to say I’m really glad I put my phone down and walked away.

I will tell you the 4 legged creatures got quite the earful.

I went to my Functional Nutritionist Friday for blood results and more tweaking of my supplements. My iron is not coming up as fast as she would like, so now I am on low dose iron supplements. I am also taking something for liver function and also enzymes for stomach acid production. My vitamin B levels are still low, higher than they were before but still way low.

I ran out of the estrogen during the bad week here in Texas. So I had been off of estrogen for two weeks. Now I am trying to get my hormones back in balance.

Everything went wonky that week, not only did I run out of estrogen, I didn’t take anything that week. In all honesty I was just trying to keep the fire going to keep the living room warmish. It was very stressful and I didn’t sleep that week.

On another note, I was watching The Rookie, the character John Nolan said this great line: “The thing about celebrities is I think they get locked in time in your head. You know whatever that show is that you loved them from, that’s the way you expect them to be”. This is so thought provoking and true. It’s not only celebrities that we do this with. Also professions, we expect more from certain professions and when people let us down by showing they are human, well it isn’t pretty.

Cancel culture is like the boulder in Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark. it just barrels downward picking up speed until there is no stopping it.

Until it reaches the bottom, by then it has wrecked havoc, indiscriminate in its destruction.

Something we should definitely leave in 2020.
