Taco Saturday Night

Got a quick start this morning with muffins and grapes. It was once again raining cats, dogs, and chickens when I came downstairs. I ended up calling Uber. Despite getting soaked waiting for it, it actually didn't take long or cost a lot for such a bad weather day. I got to work with just enough time to put my jacket and lunch bag in my locker.

Work was insanely busy through about 2 PM, after which it died down to on-and-off steady. The weather did its part. We did get heavy snow...for all of 20 minutes. The real trouble were frigid gale-force winds that blew everyone around all day long. Good thing I was cashiering today; they have plenty of bagging help on weekends. 

Had a harder time finding an Uber to take me home. By this point, any precipitation had long since vanished and the sun had emerged, but the chilly and nasty winds persisted. Not to mention, I was off during the height of rush hour. I was lucky it only took me 10 minutes to find a driver and another 13 for them to arrive. 

Went straight upstairs when I got home for a snack and to watch a couple of shows on streaming. Since this is Women's History Month, I did an episode of You Can't Do That On Television on Paramount Plus revolving around "Sexual Equality." The boys on the show demand equality and tell Christine she should give them a chance to host. Great, says Christine, but that means they also get the pies, slime, and (whispers) water intended for her, too. Meanwhile, we get a round of girls vs boys jokes, with Lisa wondering why more girls aren't executed in front of the firing squad and the boys asking the Senator why Christine gets to drive the car and they don't. 

Webby's equally happy to join in to "Escape To/From Atlantis!" on the 2017 Ducktails...if she can ever figure out how to explain to her grandmother she's along for the ride. Scrooge takes the kids and Launchpad to find the legendary lost city. Donald, however, is working for Flintheart Glomgold, the second-richest duck in the world, who will stop at nothing to make sure Scrooge never finds that treasure!

Finished the night online after tacos for dinner and a shower with the 1997 animated Pippi Longstocking at Pluto TV. I go further into this version of the beloved children's books from Sweden at my Musical Dreams Movie Reviews blog. 

Lawrence Welk and his crew did their charming "Irish Show" in 1979. There were lots of Irish reels from Bobby Burgess and his partner Elaine Niverson, and Jack Imel and Mary Lou Metzger contributed an adorable tap routine to "If You're Irish, Come Into the Parlor." Arthur Duncan did a waltz clog to "Little Annie Rooney Waltz," and even Mexican beauty Anacani contributed "Shamrocks, Shillelaghs, and Shenanigans." 

And don't forget to set your clocks ahead for Daylight Savings tonight!
