glue is drying, and clothes folding and germ parties

The place I've been going to for haircuts for a couple of decades is also the place that made me swear off going anywhere but my own bathroom for haircuts. The back of my hair which I butchered is looking a little better. I briefly thought about taking it in to have someone just even out the roughage. But, then decided that nope. I was done with hair cutting places. Then this morning, I got an email from the hair cutting place. They want me back. 20% off. I'm semi tempted...
just so I could say 'see what your loud music did to me????' but, no. No, thanks. At least, not yet.

I'm in another phase of the miniature project where it's glue/wait/glue/wait/glue... So I have a half a bed, a semi lamp, an almost chair, and curtains nearly ready to hang. Plus other stuff in progress. But, I did get the desk done.y.

My bed is covered in clean clothes. I need to go fold everything and put it away.

We have a measles outbreak going on here in Washington state. It's like the olden days but different. We did not have fancy vaccinations back in the day. And there was a bit of a different attitude especially about measles (german and red), chickenpox and mumps.

This sounds totally not real today but, trust me, it was. When a kid got one of the above, that kid's mother would throw a party and all the healthy kids were invited. In hopes they would catch the disease.

I'm serious. Old people, back me up here.

The idea was that kids bounce back from these things way more easily and if you get it as a kid, you were immune for life. Particularly Mumps was thought to make men sterile and German measles did really bad things to unborn children.

We had no vaccines so we made our own. Germ parties.

Hard to believe today. Of course, it's also hard to believe that we have a measles outbreak here. And it's because people won't vaccinate their kids. Maybe they are planning germ parties.
