It’s been a while. I mean, we had Yanny and Laurel and crazy weather and a volcano in Hawaii but the best part of my week was when CNN showed a special on rescue animals becoming first responders. (Let’s be real, I was real sick of Stormy Daniels. What kind of name is that anyway? Who names their child STORMY? And doesn’t get all artsy-fartsy and change it to STORMI. OR STORMIE. OR STORMEE. Let’s be real, it looks the best with an I.)
I did a HIIT workout for the first time this week and have been walking and sitting like I’m 156 years old since then. #neveragain
Just ask Lon. He’s just waiting for me to ask to watch Lawrence Welk and for me to overcook all our meat so it turns to mush or is drier than the Sahara Desert.
I also bought some grown up bandaids this week (which does not mean adult bandaids, but rather just not children’s bandaids.) It was a good deal and I needed some bad, so here we are. I now have plain, neutral tone bandaids. (I would say skin color, but band aids really don’t match anyone’s skin tones.)
My friend Shark Ripslash recently got married. That’s a thing that makes me happy. She’s great you guys–you’d like her. And Shark Ripslash isn’t even her real name. It’s her SUPER HERO ALTER EGO.
It’s been a while since I’ve been here and I’m just rambling, but that is a thing I do well. I also just started a instagram account (and by just started, I mean like a year and a half ago) called book review haikus (@bookreviewhaikus) and I am very proud of it so if you need more poetry or ideas of books to read or you just want to follow more people on instagram, there’s an option for you.
I think that’s everything in my head. Oh wait, we’re in the process of buying a house. Well, building/buying that is. It’s lovely. It’s a townhouse in Herriman. And I love it and it’s stressful and I just want to live there because we’re going to have a reading loft but also I hate moving and packing and cleaning so there’s that. And I have this irrational fear of becoming a hoarder and so I’ve already started throwing away stuff and my DI pile is out of control, so if anyone has any great moving/organizing/getting your life in order so that you don’t fall to pieces tips I would greatly appreciate them.
Last thing. Did you know that elephants have the same emotional reaction when they see a human as a human does when they see a puppy? Isn’t that cute? Like elephants just think we’re their tiny little adorable pet friends.
