I am so damned annoyed. Amazon was certainly happy to announce discounted Prime for people with EBT cards but I am having a lot of trouble signing up for it - a week after I first tried signing up, after multiple emails, chats, and phone calls with customer support, I just uploaded the info they want for the 3rd or 4th time only to be told it could take another week to verify and there’s no way for me to track the process.

WOTD in Mulberry )
I got this scarf last month from AliExpress - Wrapunzel just added one just like it in their midsummer line! I feel almost fashionable *g*

I love the little bronze stripes on one end of this sari scarf - it makes for a really cool accent when I wrap it in a style with tails! the stretch lace headband is from eBay and the pin was a gift from a neighbor.

Oh gosh, how awesome is Penzeys? I ordered last weekend while they had two free-with-purchase offers and a reduced minimum for free shipping, and they still enclosed a "sample" (their samples are the same size as their regular small jars!) of a tasty-sounding blend! I had a $5 off deal from PayPal and a neighbor going in on the order with me, too, so I got a bunch of great spices for not much money :)
Went to the store and came back to the news that Caestillus is officially being investigated for obstruction of justice. Looks like I bought the right things...

It may not be pretty, but oh my it tastes good! )
I made a turkey meatloaf and instead of trying to make it as similar-tasting to a beef meatloaf, I seasoned it with Penzeys poultry seasoning, along with air dried shallots and powdered rosemary (also Penzeys), celery salt, fresh ground pepper, and lime ponzu (not Penzeys). Also added unseasoned breadcrumbs, a beaten egg, and some dried mushrooms. The only change I'd make if I fix this again would be adding a dash of cayenne.

Since Boston doesn't mind wearing bowties and bandanas too much (at least, for a few minutes at a time to get pictures) I'm going to keep an eye out for holiday themed ones for him to wear if I can find a good price on one I like. I have a great Day of the Dead one and I might look for more Halloweeny ones, and of course his rainbow one... but I really want to get him this - it's SO CUTE!
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.
