Can Someone Send Her Some Tips?

 

I saw the headline, but the actual story is unbelievable. Newly minted Congress-woman and Democratic Socialist, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is taking a week off due to “burn out”, before she has even started her new job, and is calling it a timeout for ‘self-care’. She isn’t sure what ‘self-care’ is, so she took to social media to ask for tips. She mentioned on Instagram that there are people who are ostracized for doing a facial, and how her 3-4 times a week yoga schedule has been disrupted due to her new work schedule. Ok….

Keep in mind, she hasn’t started the job yet. Then how does she find the time for all this social media?

Ocasio-Cortez laments that she used to make healthy wild rice and salmon dinners, now she falls asleep with her makeup on…….wow…! She somehow managed to unseat an experienced Democratic Representative Joe Crowley, who actually worked for the people of Queens and his district. I don’t understand why he didn’t leave “instructions” for the job she would be taking, along with self-care tips. I’m sure he never neglected his facial regimen, in spite of being on the go.

Since this is a social media site, can anyone give Miss Ocasio-Cortez some self-care tips? I’m not sure she visits this site too often, but maybe someone can get the word out that we’re here to help, in the name of getting everyone in the upcoming new Congress started on the right foot. Please go further, as it sounds like she needs a lot of help, like some lessons about the Constitution, the current and future needs of her district, the projects that were left by the outgoing Rep., the budget she has to work with, and where to get a quick, healthy salmon salad with wild rice.

    Ironic that AOC is taking this week off, as this is the week before Christmas.

    I suggest that she return to the religious demonination of her childhood and be restored by it and its traditions.

    I also suggest that she have a day of rest each week, following our Jewish brothers and sisters.

    Sometimes, the traditional and old ways are best.

    I wish AOC the best.

    Might I suggest a revitalizing yet soothing facial masque at bedtime, then curling up with a good book. Preferably one on economics?

    Maybe the feedback on Instagram will give her sufficient validation to relax for a few moments. The crash and burn on this one will, unfortunately, be spectacular.

    Well that should help her get to sleep. 

    To me it seemed one of the great virtues of being a Congressman is that you don’t have to work too hard doing anything. Its mostly blowing hot air, which AOC does just fine. 

    I suggest she take up playing video games. I find them both relaxing and engaging (maybe too engaging). Or if she wants to engage in a more interpersonal and in person experience she should take up playing board games or pen and paper RPGs with friends. All a massively good time.

    I think AOC should find herself by taking up recreational drugs and promiscuous sex. Oh, and public nudity, because it makes an important statement of some kind.

    As far as I am concerned, AOC exists for my personal amusement. She should go for broke.

    So this sounds like a round about way of saying you want to see her naked. With your Male Gaze! Stop Gazing!

    Actually, AOC should take a time out before reporting to her new job.  She needs to well rested before receiving the beating Nancy Pelosi is going to give her upon arrival . . .

    She’s exhausted before she’s even started the job?! How pathetic. Maybe she can find a safe space somewhere and cuddle up with a teddy bear. . .

    Ya think?  C’mon – you all can do better than drugs and video games! I’m not sure she’s been advised on anything from her communications – like bring bug spray before entering the swamp.  Where do junior congress people go? Do you have to find an apt – do they get an office? Then just throw a yoga mat on the floor with a My Pillow, and you don’t need to leave the office.  Get a hot plate and a blender – throw the egg yoke into a fry pan with one hand and smear the egg white on your face with the other for a protein packed facial?  

    Has anyone told her about the delicious grilled salmon salad at Bonefish Grille? I’ve been trying to get them to cough up the citrus salad dressing ingredients – packed with kale and quinoa, it is awesome – not kidding.

    Here’s my evening “self-care” regimen:

    • 3 oz. good bourbon
    • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
    • two dashes bitters
    • Pour over ice and one maraschino cherry (maybe two)

    AOC is welcome to use it, provided she can handle the arithmetic.

    My “self-care” for the week before Christmas is to eat as many home baked cookies as possible before returning to my low-carb diet after the holidays. It may not be yoga and salmon but it gets the job done.

    AOC (or someone on her staff) is a master troll. She posts stuff like this just to get the responses.

    That is true. She went against the Democrat establishment and beat a 20 year incumbent who just assumed he had a seat for life. She promotes bad policy, not for the sake of money and power like other politicians, but because she, naively, believes that silliness.

    Sure there is Beverly Hillbillies vibe going on, but she is showing that there is a principled alternative to the ruling class . . . although she could end up being the best argument for a ruling class.

    Vance, your will power may be as weak as mine.  To lose a few pounds, I’ve gone on a low-carb diet.  Unfortunately, Marie has made a ton of cookies for Christmas— chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal — and put them in the freezer.  She tells me that I can’t have any before Christmas.  Good luck with that, Marie, you ogre.   I can’t resist cookies.  You know that.  

    So I go to the freezer after she’s gone to bed to remove a few cookies.  I try to take a few out of each plastic bag so that she won’t know any are missing.   She knows.  In fact, I think she checks the first thing in the morning. 

    Cookies are my downfall.  Warm cookies with milk.  I can’t help myself.  They’re just so damned good.

    I try so hard.  It’s the cookie’s fault.  Or Marie’s.  Or somebody’s.

    Traditional medicine is really the only way to approach feelings of burnout. For this reason, I commend to Ocasio-Cortez D.C.’s world-class Leech Day Spa on Southern Ave SE across from the Denny’s.

    Anything by Thomas Sowell would be a good start.  Tho I doubt she’ll understand his cogent –  and dare I say – his easy-to-grasp arguments.  Her head, filled with fuzzy thinking, is too far up in the clouds.  But maybe a day at a spa in a sauna just may – nah, she’s too far gone.
