Cognitive dissonance avoided

I hate You tube. I mean I really HATE You Tube. I also hate it when people send me You Tube links and expect me to look at them as if I care and then ask me questions about it. So you can imagine my chagrin when I was googling Somali children's songs and getting hits that brought me to you tube. Oh no, it could prove helpful! How to readjust my thinking? Luckily I didn't have to. The links were totally not useful. Phew. That's much better. My world remains in place.

Unrelated, I have a bunion. What the hell is that about? I went to the store to buy bunion pads or something and the best I can do is buy moleskin. The bunion pads are more to protect the foot on the side and I need to protect the bottom and then I was also reading about putting a spacer between the big toe and next toe to force the big toe back into alignment. (because that's what a bunion is... a growth that causes your big toe to start moving towards the little toes.) Seriously, we could amputate my right foot right about now and I'd be fine with that.

I'm not a huge fan of YouTube either, even though I do put up some videos of my hamster (usually less than a minute). I rarely click when someone sends me a link or uses it as their blog post.

Good luck with the bunions. My Mom has those and had some surgery. I'm worried it might be hereditary, but so far, so good.

What in the world would you do with a closet of left Danske shoes?
