Saturday night I drove to Hy-Vee and our town is just a quiet, great job Mankato... and also it's super sad. Let's get past this thing. The number of neighbors on walks makes me think we won't have gained the quarantine - 15 Saw some You Honk, we drink signs up over the weekend including my friends who were all sitting 6' feet apart at the same time We're all getting antsy, but we're moving on from Netflix to house projects. painting, landscaping, spring cleaning I see a lot of memes about this was going to be our year and is [...]

Characters Who Deserved More

By |2020-04-03T10:26:00-05:00April 3rd, 2020|

As you may have learned this morning, I feel Disney is overrated. I don't hate all their stuff, I just don't have it on a pedestal. With that, I have found a random, pointless distraction for our brain: CinemaBlend.com has a fun, not-so-vital list of 9 Disney characters that deserved more screen time. Here are the ones they came up with: 1. Bruni, the fire salamander, from "Frozen 2" 2. Gus, the mouse, from "Cinderella" 3. Pua, the adorable pig, from "Moana" 4. Pascal, the pet chameleon, from "Tangled" 5. Squirt, the little turtle, from "Finding Nemo" 6. Ducky and Bunny, [...]

Stressed-Out States

By |2020-03-31T10:48:15-05:00March 31st, 2020|

Everyone's stressed about the coronavirus right now, and all the rippling effects it's had. But here's a more general look at America's stress levels. WalletHub just put out its annual list of the most stressed-out states in America. And they did factor in SOME coronavirus stats. But it's not really a snapshot of today. If it was, New York would be a lot higher than 18th place. Each year, they look at 41 different metrics across four categories: Health, money, work, and family-related stress. So everything from income and job security to divorce rates and childcare issues. According to the results, [...]

The Naked Challenge

The newest social media challenge might be perfect for couples during quarantine: Simply walk in totally naked on your significant other while they're playing video games and record the reaction. https://youtu.be/DD-qIZvsoVQ Yeah.

New DiGiorno Pizza with a Croissant Crust

By |2020-03-31T07:14:20-05:00March 31st, 2020|

Has anyone, anywhere! Ever mistaken DiGiorno for a delivered pizza? NO, you know it's frozen za... and not the best. I prefer a Red Baron over the rising crust king. BUT wait! There's a new style of DiGiorno in town.  The combo of a croissant and a pizza. What can we call it? The crozza? The pissant? DiGiorno just started selling a frozen pizza that has a CROISSANT crust. And from the picture on the box . . . yeah, it really looks like the entire crust is just one big croissant. The pizza is brand new, so there's no guarantee [...]

Things I’ve Noticed

By |2020-03-30T07:36:47-05:00March 30th, 2020|

People were still out and about this weekend, but definitely noticed traffic was down Quarantining will bring us closer... and maybe not as fat as we thought... So many people are going on walks. Not having sports is awful. Missing the rest of hockey was rough, but NO BASEBALL is miserable! Exciting news for those who enjoy good laughs, the quarantine is spiking all of the creativity. SO many fun ideas. Tiger King is worth the hype - what a train wreck, but the kind that you can't look away from.   - Stunt Monkey

States with the Most Social People

By |2020-03-30T07:33:03-05:00March 30th, 2020|

Right now we're in the era of social distancing, which can be hard on everyone, but ESPECIALLY hard on us extroverts. Most of my day is ok, but then I'll have a moment where I start to freak about what is everyone else is doing while I sit here alone. A new study ranked every state from the most to least social or, in other words, which states are most and least affected by social distancing. The rankings are based on factors like the amount of time people spend doing social activities: exercise and recreation, religious activities, volunteering, and taking care [...]
