Ok, William Tell is to the left of Eris, and son next to him. But why is Robin Hood there.

Robin split the arrow that William Tell put in the Apple, maybe 🤔

Hello,

 

A friend had a BlackBerry (as did I).

 

We were returning to the Indy from an afternoon tea when he decided to send a message to a friend back in the UK. He typed, amongst other things, "Lisbon's nice and warm". The BlackBerry obviously never had a list of European capital cities as what was sent without realising autocorrection had happened was "Lesbians nice and warm".

 

Regards,

 

Cublet

I never cease to be amazed at the words that the autocheck on my Amazon Fire replaces or the words it replaces them with,certainly keeps me on my toes!

Thanks, but who is the guy next to her? Obviously a date based on his outfit.

 

I thought the guy next to Eris was William Tell, and next to him, his son.

As for the archer at the head of the table, I don't know. I'm not familiar enough with the Robin Hood legends to recall anything about an apple.

The one next to the witch

Neither Goldilocks nor  Eris, Goddess of Discord, had an apple connection, but Aphrodite did. 

Hence I vote for Aphrodite.

Dear Diary 2020 Edition
In January, Australia caught on fire. I don’t even know if that fire was put out, because we straight up almost went to war with Iran. We might actually still be almost at war with them. I don’t know, because Jen Aniston and Brad Pitt spoke to one another at an awards show and everyone flipped the **** out, but then Netflix released Cheer and everyone fell in love with Jerry, but then there was thing happening in China, then Prince Harry and Megan peaced out of the Royal family, and there was the whole impeachment trial, and then corona virus showed up in the US “officially,” but then Kobe died and UK peaced out of the European Union
In February, Iowa crapped itself with the caucus results and the president was acquitted and the Speaker of the House took ten years to rip up a speech, but then WHO decided to give this virus a name COVID-19, which confused some really important people in charge of, like, our lives, into thinking there were 18 other versions before it, but then Harvey Weinstein was found guilty, and Americans started asking if Corona beer was safe to drink, and everyone on Facebook became a doctor who just knew the flu like killed way more people than COVID 1 through 18.
In March, ***** hit the fan. Warren dropped out of the presidential race and Sanders was like Bernie or bust, but then Italy shut its whole ass down, and then COVID Not 1 through 18 officially become what everyone already realized, a pandemic and then a nationwide state of emergency was declared in US, but it didn’t really change anything, so everyone was confused or thought it was still just a flu, but then COVID Not 18 was like ya’ll not taking me seriously? I’m gonna infect the one celebrity everyone loves and totally infected Tom Hanks, but then the DOW took a ***** on itself, and most of us still don’t understand why the stock market is so important or even a thing(I still don’t), but then we were all introduced to Tiger King. (Carol totally killed her husband), and Netflix was like you’re welcome, and we all realized there was no way we were washing our hands enough in the first place because all of our hands are now dry and gross.
In April, Bernie finally busted himself out of the presidential race, but then NYC became the set of The Walking Dead and we learn that no one has face masks, ventilators, or toilet paper, or THE GOD DAMN SWIFTER WET JET LIQUID, but then Kim Jong-Un died, but then he came back to life… or did he? Who knows, because then the Pentagon released videos of UFOs, and we were like man, it’s only April….
In May, the biblical end times kicked off historical locust swarms and then we learned of murder hornets and realized that 2020 was the start of the Hunger Games but people forgot to let us know, but then people legit protested lockdown measures with AR-15s, and then sports events were cancelled everywhere, But then people all over America finally reached a breaking point with race issues and violence. There were protests in every city, but then people totes forgot about the pandemic called COVID Not One Through 18. Media struggled with how to focus on two important things at once, but then people in general struggle to focus on more than one important thing, and a dead whale was found in the middle of the Amazon rain forest after monkeys stole COVID 1 Through 19 from a lab and ran off with them, and either in May or April (no one is keeping track of time now) that a giant asteroid narrowly missed earth.
In June, science and common sense just got thrown straight out the window and somehow wearing masks became a political thing, but then a whole lot of people realized the south was actually the most unpatriotic thing ever and actually lost the civil war, and there is a large amount of people who feel that statues they don’t even know the name of are needed for … history reasons? but then everyone sort of remembered there was a pandemic, but then decided that not wearing a mask was somehow a god given right (still haven't found that part in the bible or even in the constitution), but then scientists announced they found a mysterious undiscovered mass at the center of the earth, and everyone was like DON’T YOU DARE TOUCH IT, but then everyone took a pause to realize that people actually believed Gone With The Wind was like non-fiction, but then it was also announced that there is a strange radio signal coming from somewhere in the universe that repeats itself every so many days, and everyone was like DON’T YOU DARE ATTEMPT TO COMMUNICATE WITH. IT, but then America reopened from the shut down that actually wasn’t even a shut down, and so far, things have gone spectacularly not that great, but everyone is on Facebook arguing that masks kill because no one knows how breathing works, but then Florida was like hold my beer and let me show you how we’re number one in all things, including new Not Corona Beer Corona Virus, Trump decides now is a good time to ask the Supreme Court to shut down Obama Care because what better time to do so than in the middle of a pandemic, but then we learned there was a massive dust cloud coming straight at us from the Sahara Desert, which is totally normal, but this is 2020, so the ghost mummy thing is most likely in that dust cloud, but then I learned of meth-gators, and I'm like that is so not on my fucking 2020 Bingo card, but then we learned that the Congo's worse ever Ebola outbreak is over, and we were all like, there was an ebola outbreak that was the worse ever?
In July…. Aliens? Zeus? Asteroids? Artificial Intelligence becomes self aware?

I can hardly wait to read your diary for the second half of the year. 

I will say one good thing for the first half: because nobody went anywhere, cars in Florida did not get layers of dead love bugs. 

When we start getting hurricane warnings, few people will have room to store more toilet paper, so the rush to stock up won’t be quite as frantic. 

My birthday Saturday will be marked by fireworks, too many people at the beach, and me and my husband having  my  most boring birthday party ever....watching reruns of old sporting events!

The object of this staying at home and missing our normal lives is, to quote an old Florida Highway Patrol motto, “Arrive Alive”!

The Golden Apple of Discord was created by Eris, the Goddess of Discord. Zeus had thrown a wedding on Mount Olympus for Thetis the sea nymph and mortal Peleus. After Eris found out that she was not invited, she crashed the wedding and threw the apple inscribed with the word "kallisti" or "for the fairest".
So a very solid 🍎 connection me thinks for Eris 😉

but then we learned there was a massive dust cloud coming straight at us from the Sahara Desert, which is totally normal, but this is 2020, so the ghost mummy thing is most likely in that dust cloud, 


So, remember this post from a few days/weeks back?

I posted that in response to this story on Facebook:

You know - I was being funny. I still think it’s funny.  And Facebook blocked my post for being against their community standards and passing along incorrect information about COVID-19. So, in order for @John&LaLa’s post to stay, I just want to say that mummy dust is not real because apparently some people may be influenced into thinking it is.
