It’s Friday! Let’s Dance!

Did I forget a gif? Yes. But I didn’t forget the post! Tell me about your weekend plans. Friends are visiting from out of town so I have some fun shenanigans ahead, as long as the weather cooperates.

So, How Was Your Day?

I AM THE WORST, I’M SORRY. Please ignore the delay and tell me how your day was. Yesterday was my birthday, so you can’t be mad at me.

How Was Your Weekend?

First of all, sorry I forgot about Friday’s post–I had the day off, which always throws my usual scheduling mojo off-kilter. I also have TODAY off, so my weekend is still going and it is great.

What are you READING?

I’m contemplating starting a new series of recommendation posts in which we talk about what we’re watching, eating, listening to, etc. We’ll see how this goes. Since I’m going to be spending 24 hours in the air and another 15+ hours in airports in a couple weeks, I’m very interested in getting some book recommendations right now. Continue reading

So, How Was Your Day?

Monsters Vote! Let’s Share.


I drove the lengthy five minutes in the rain to the local high school. People tried to hand me stuff on the way in, but I smiled and said no thanks. I don’t need more to recycle.

Everyone was so nice and well-trained. I love the civility of voting; it restores just a little bit of my faith in the system and makes me feel like I belong in it. It’s the part of the political process that seems sincere to me–the casting of the ballot, the thing beyond rhetoric and cynicism and the nigh-on despair folks are feeling right now.

I got my sticker. Yay! I said “yay” out loud to the dude handing them out. He seemed a bit flummoxed. That’s okay. Sticker!

Aaaaaand I’ve already lost it. I feel ridiculously sad about that. I wanted to stick it on something.

Did you vote today? Was it uplifting? Depressing? Status-quo-feeling? Crowded? Annoying? Are you watching returns later or escaping into Netflix and Amazon?

I’m hoping Maryland elects its first black governor!

How Was Your Weekend?

Mine was great! I got a lot of work done and went out to dinner and a show (Rocky Horror live, what a delight) on Sunday.
