If you’re new to my blog, welcome! Here is an explanation of the tater tot post.
Scratch and Sniff
I mentioned my love of stickers in a previous tater tot post.
Nicole then asked whether I had a sticker album as a child, which I did. I had entirely forgotten about scratch and sniff stickers until she suggested them.
Then another blogger mentioned gummy worm stickers.
See, this is why the comment area is by far the best place on a blog.
Anyway, a few days later, I came across some scratch and sniff stickers.
The burger wasn’t as appetizing (smelling) as I remembered, but if you have the chance, pick up some scratch and sniff stickers.
Take a look at how stickery my desk is!
I manifested that.
Speaking of tater tot postings of lore, in April of 2020, I was looking for a picture of myself in kindergarten that looked quite similar to this little girl:
Not the girl on the top, the girl on the bottom.
I relate to the girl on the bottom.
Long story short, I discovered the picture I was looking for:
For whatever reason, my cousin in Ohio had this image and mailed it to my mom a few months ago.
I’m not as eager to make fun of her as I was two years ago.
Hello there, sweet girl, it’s wonderful to see you again.
I FOUND A NEW GAME AND IT’S SO MUCH FUN!
It’s called Heardle, and you have to figure out what song it is by listening to the first note.
Have any of you had a chance to play it?
I’m thinking about making this a monthly segment. This month: Why I can’t watch Better Off Dead without purchasing the DVD.
We’ve been looking for the movie Better Off Dead (starring John Cusack) for a long time and haven’t been able to find it. I’m not interested in purchasing a DVD. This is where I become irritated: why, with all of the streaming options available, is this necessary?
Random tater tot nugget that won’t fit into a traditional post– Ella referred to John Cusack as “John Hughesack” the other day, and I think that will be the name I will use for him going forward.
Lots of hearts
Most of the time, when I react to your comments, I do so using my laptop. I don’t use the WordPress app on my phone since I don’t find it to be Kari-friendly.
So, over the last however many years I’ve been on WordPress, anytime someone leaves a heart emoji, I respond with a happy face. Why? Because I didn’t know how to make a heart on my laptop; I only knew how to do it on my phone.
That is, until the other day when I decided to google “how to make a heart on your laptop.”
There is no wizard behind this curtain.
And I found this article: How to Make a Heart on a Keyboard
By the way, Mike didn’t know how to create a heart on his laptop either. Thank GOD. 😉
So it’s hearts upon hearts upon hearts from now on in the comments section. ❤️

What I’m watching
Ted Lasso Apple Tv FINALLY! We got Appletv by switching Anna’s phone plan. We watched five episodes in a row one night. Now I see what all the fuss is about.
Turning Red Disney Plus We loved it; I know there have been mixed reactions, but it’s worth watching.
Lucy and Desi Amazon This was a beautiful documentary. Even if you’ve never seen I Love Lucy, the documentary of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz is both interesting and inspirational.
Life After Death with Tyler Henry Netflix We enjoy Tyler, and this program provided a more in-depth look into his life than his previous E Network show.
The Thing About Pam Hulu Despite the fact that the main character is completely unlikeable, we find ourselves unable to stop watching.
What I’m listening to
The Feelies- In Between
Maddie introduced me to this rock band a few months back in the comment section, and I’m completely in love with them. But I also like the fact that every time The Feelies arrive on my Apple Music playlist, I am reminded of her. Just another reason I love blogging and all of you.
Matisyahu- One Day
American, Jewish, reggae rapper. All of those words had me hooked. Listen to the song I’ve been singing in my car all month by clicking the link above. It’s been encouraging this month, especially in light of what’s been going on in Ukraine.
Joy Oladokun- too high
I adore Joy Oladokun’s voice. But her song “too high” is my favorite because every single word of it sounds as if I wrote it. Perhaps you can connect to it as well. To listen, click the link.

What I’m quoting
“I’m not impressed by those who need to tell me how busy they are. I am impressed by people who figure out what is and isn’t important in life, and live accordingly.” LA from the blog Waking up on the Wrong Side of 50
“Compromising who you are to gain the approval of another is a very precise example of giving away a piece of your spirit. Eventually you give away more and more of yourself until you have no strength or sense of self left. I understood then that manipulation is the art of making another person’s spirit dance for personal amusement, and only through honoring oneself do we become strong enough to refuse to dance.” Carolyn Myss
“The mind, once enlightened, cannot again become dark.” Thomas Paine
“I want to sing like the birds sing, not worrying about who hears or what they think.” Rumi
It’s birthday month…
