I don’t even think I have a photograph of myself from 2009 or 2010. Too bad for you. 😝
This past decade was an unmemorable blur. That’s how you know you are getting old. Packed with me being jobless, watching UTB, going to the hospital, my aunt dying, getting my first job even if it was for one day, then getting a real job 6 years later, finally graduating college.
My pen pal from Nebraska. I love you on a platonic level. Do you read my blog? Do you know I have a blog? Never mind. Meeting my speech teacher. My secret hobby which I still can’t seem to get started on.
The 2010s was not a kind decade to clowns. The family friendly clowns. In 2014 there was “the clown shortage” which was nothing more than media outlets reporting that membership was declining for world clown association (WCA) and clowns of America international (COAI). In 2016 there was the great clown scare in which reports of people in evil clown costumes terrorizing children. And hiding in the woods. And making threats. The clowns feared their life and business. And could not go out in makeup. But their clown organization membership cards served as a kind of clown id and kept them for being mistaken or arrested. In 2017 the greatest show on earth Ringling brothers and Barnum and bailey circus closed their doors. Which was another blow to clowns. Will clowns be extinct by the next decade? Maybe? Possibly? I don’t know.
No Doubt released “Push and Shove”. Which I still think is their weakest album in their entire discography. She did record another solo album after her and Gavin broke up, “This is what the Truth Feels Like”. But then they formed Dreamcar without her so maybe they are broken up? They never made an official announcement.
