And as timing would have it, I got a care package from a friend today with a Signature scarf in turquoise and another scarf - here are both of them wrapped. )

I got a Disability Update Report from Social Security today. It was just a one-page form, that the enclosed letter said they might or might not do a full review based on. It just asked if I had done any work, if I had gotten any training, when were my last medical appointments. Filled it out and put it in the mail. Thankfully I had stamps - it seems vaguely insulting that the form needed a stamp, but that's a minor detail.

Here's hoping they won't bother with the full review.

I... think I'm being catfished on Twitter by someone claiming to be Richard Thompson?

2017 is so weird.

I didn't realize this Prisma filter would put me in front of the ocean like this - it was a bit of a feelspunch to see without warning, I miss the sea so much.

Also, a wrapper I really admire just started a YouTube channel! Here's her first video demonstrating a simple style she wears a lot, first with a nice soft pashmina and then with two thin light scarves. Links to all items are posted in the YouTube description.

Maybe a bit superstitious of me, but I swear my matzo ball soup always comes out better when I make a little extra to share with my neighbor.

Oooh, MunchPak has a sale - until the 19th, 19% off with the code DADSDAY.

Boston's not too happy with this tie. It was only 62 cents on AliExpress, though, so it doesn't matter if he only wears it once or twice for a quick photo.
Tonight I had a quesadilla made with masa rather than tortillas and I don't know if I can ever go back...

Also the place where I had it (a wonderful little snack bar right near my apartment complex) has, unsurprisingly, a tv tuned to a Spanish-language station and while it was being made I had the entertaining experience of sipping an agua fresca that had been chunks of cantaloupe moments earlier watching an ad for Taco Bell in Spanish. I feel a little sorry for the Taco Bell in my neighborhood. Unless someone has a specific craving for their variety of homogenized Mexicanish or a thirst for Mountain Dew Baja Blast, they're grotesquely outclassed - Tacorrido even has them beat in the late-night and drive-thru departments.
It was so good! )

Two hours later I'm still very very full.

Well, I didn't have the spoons for TJ Maxx or Trader Joe's, but I did make it to Target on sheer determination to get the most out of my 24 hour bus pass. It was disappointing. They didn't have the appealing selection of Pride themed items I have been seeing people raving about online - I was hoping they'd have the lightweight rainbow scarf I saw someone on Facebook wearing. Nope! But they had coffee nut M&Ms on clearance and hibiscus tea on sale so it wasn't a totally useless trip.

I went out yesterday evening - ate McDonalds, browsed Bookwoman and Half Price Books, stopped in at Goodwill.

Found a couple of great scarves at Goodwill. )

I have a 24-hour bus pass that is good until 5:30 and I was semi-planning on going to Target and maybe TJ Maxx and Trader Joe's this morning while it was still good, but I feel stiff and achy and not up to it.

I don't know if I'll be able to wrap exclusively in Pride colors for all of June, but I am gonna try to focus on rainbow, bi pride, and ace pride colors this month.
