Our farm box just arrived, and for some reason the cats are obsessed with the pineapple.

I have so many unfinished blog posts sitting in draft. 😅 I keep getting caught in this vicious circle of wanting to write comprehensive thoughts or complete stories — I get caught up in perfectionism and/or overwhelmed with all I might have to say. Feeling a bit wistful for the days of brief blog posts, so perhaps I should return to that approach...

@david Thanks! I keep hoping to get a Mastodon habit to stick so I hope to this time. 🙂 Hope you can make it to XOXO sometime!

Trying to make more of an effort to be present on Mastodon. 😀 What are your top tips for establishing your Mastodon habits?

In other news, I forgot to share my Hufflepuff nails with y’all. With badger thumbs!

Still not over Bourdain, but finally got the courage to start watching S9 of Parts Unknown. Love how each episode has prompted great convos, but will soon miss these prompts. Vowing to become more intentional and diligent about having these conversations about culture and race though.

wao, after getting back from the big week-long work event on Saturday, I’m still not fully recovered. It feels like I peopled enough for a whole month! 😅 Spouse had to convince me to leave the house today – I’m glad I did though, ‘cause we had some stellar Thai food. Now back to our regularly scheduled couch.

@zannah @fraying Someone I met at XO the other day (I already forgot their name!) showed me this pin that we all need: worldfamousoriginal.com/produc

@fraying I hear you 💛 It’s overwhelming and tiring. I am still rallying to get out the door to go today, after a bit of panic this morning.

Turned leftover Chinese takeout of stuffed eggplant into a sort of Tortang Talong with Giniling (a Filipino eggplant and pork omelet) for breakfast this morning. It wasn’t picture-worthy but it was tasty enough that I had to tell y’all. 😋

Also today, we watched 2+ hours
of music videos from 1983 at our favorite movie theater. I had a good day. 💖

While getting my blood drawn today, the lab tech noticed my watch with the Pip-Boy face (thanks @neven) and we talked about video games the entire time. ✨

@liz @roseveleth Same, I didn’t think it was anything negative! 💛
