I want you to read to my posts as a good distraction. I feel bad I’ve contributed to the “news” we don’t want to be depressed with.

I usually write about ridiculous things that happen in my life, but being quarantined has basically shut me off from the stupid people of the world. Maybe that’s a good thing, or maybe it’s bad because it’s taken away my prime writing material.

I realized my last few posts were related to the craziness the world is enduring right now. I’m tired of hearing about it, as you might be also, especially considering that’s all we hear about now in the news. I’ve decided I’m not even going to mention it anymore because we’ve all heard enough about it.

As such, what should I talk about?

Being quarantined has left me a little bored. One of my new found hobbies is using slices of American cheese to act out characters from random Shakespeare plays. Before you judge me, I have to tell you, it’s actually quite culturally enlightening. I didn’t expect the slices to play their roles well, but they do!

Do you want some random trivia?

Even if you don’t, it’s too late because you’re already here, so enjoy!

The national animal of Scotland is the unicorn. How cool is that? I’ve decided to officially adopt the unicorn as my spirit animal. What would you call a unicorn with two horns? I’d call it a genetic mutation, but I guess it’d be a bicorn. That just doesn’t sound as dignified as UNICORN. Unicorns rock.

Did you now the hashtag symbol (#) is actually called an octothorpe? (the “octo-” prefix refers to the eight points on the symbol). Boom. Mind blown.

I’m happy there is no sports on the news, but I wonder why there is still a sportscaster talking about what’s NOT happening. I find that odd. I know it’s not trivia, but it makes me wonder.

I’ll add more later. I just wanted to post something so my regular followers don’t think I’ve fallen into the abyss.

Hang in there and remember, my blog and I are here for you when you a distraction.
