Au revoir, l'été

Summer Solstice has come and gone. While this isn't exactly the end of summer, it's definitely a turning point. Day length has peaked with 19 hours, 21 minutes, and 32 seconds of daylight. I'm not quite ready to turn in my flip-flops, tank-tops, and other assorted hyphenated signs-of-summer yet. I am, however, ready for some deep sleep. With that, here are some random thoughts from this week. 

  • One of the "benefits" of 19+ hours of daylight is that not everyone realizes that it's actually 11 p.m. and therefore it's a great time to mow your lawn. Neighbors be damned!
  • I realize now why my yoga membership was 50% off. Who wants to be inside right now? 
  • Has anyone read this book? White Trash: The 400-Year Untold History of Class in America. I want to read it but I don't want to spend $14.99 for a Kindle book. 
  • I wish American states were allowed to peacefully vote themselves out of the Union. Not that I think my state would be able to stand alone, but we have different issues and a different economy than, say, Washington D.C. 
  • Why is pho so delicious when someone else makes it? I use the same ingredients and it's NOT the same. 
  • I'm going to guess that Burger King's target demographic is "teenage stoners" as their latest offering has somehow managed to be even more disgusting that that Taco Bell monstrosity. 
  • clipping. released a new song and I'm kind of disappointed. CLPPNG was one of my favorite albums of 2014.
  • I recently set a PW (personal worst) at a recent triathlon. I can't say I'm surprised, I've not been eating correctly or training properly. I'm disappointed, though. 
  • I'm glad I will be backpacking all weekend. It will keep me from wandering about my house, looking for Game of Thrones spoilers. I'm disappointed I'll be missing my weekly long run with friends. 
  • I need to remember that l'habit ne fait pas le moine, as I've found myself a bit judgemental of both myself and others recently. 
  • Speaking of french proverbs, I suppose petit a petit, l'oiseau fait son nid, also fits. 
  • Speaking of birds, has anyone else read this article about the creator of Oiselle? I am so annoyed by giant corporations and especially Nike. I do not like Nike products and never have. Wait, that's not true. I have a pair of dry-fit socks which were the most bestest socks ever for the first three times I wore them.

      I truly try not the judge other parents. I was at a pool with friends the other day and there was a fecal incident. My friend was like, “the parent should know of the child is potty trained and put them in a swim diaper!” I’m a terrible devil’s advocate so I couldn’t bite my tongue. Of course I had to say that the child who pooped may have special needs and we never know. And my friend agreed. 
       

      Of course we didn’t set foot in that pool even long after it was cleaned! The mental image was seared into our brains 🤣

      Jeremy and Jinger did a new you tube video. They are going back to vlogging. They are in a new house, in LA, and it sounds like they plan to be there awhile. They are remodeling. They talked about moving. It was riveting. 💤

      Blaming the parent is a cop out and empowers the child to act out.

      Absolutely - kids are individuals just like adults.  All you can do is your best but nobody is able to be ON 100% of the time without breaks.  We're not machines.

      It's moving day for the entitlement twins.  Anyone want to guess when their next grift will be?  I am sure it will be less than a day for their next "funding request" to appear.

      My guess is that some of their "boxes*" will have been lost, damaged, stolen, etc and they will be needing the items** in those particular boxes replaced ASAP.

      * boxes... if any boxes even exist. They collect free money then do whatever they want. 

      ** items... the lost boxes will "contain" their most valuable belongings so they can beg for as much money as possible.

      You know, it just occurred to me.. why would Josh even think he deserves another hearing? He is nobody but a minor D-list player.. and a bad one at that. Yeah, I know we're all equal under the law, but... he's not all that..
