Euchre Night was BACK and blowing my budget last night. So YAY. It was delightful to play again. I got hugged by a friendly old drunk man, who had earlier admonished Kirk for not paying attention. He also had the most wonderful drunken ‘WHAT?’s of anyone I’ve encountered in real life. Cheers, Peter.
However, it’s been a very long time since I went to bed at 2am, so I’m still barely alive at nearly 9am. In order to get my body moving, I made myself a baked egg on sauteed kale, mushroom, green pepper, and cheddar not quite wrapped in a tortilla (it was more taco than burrito), which is probably the best morning fuel I’ve given myself all week.
Which is good, ’cause I have to stumble to work shortly in the drear and drizzle, so I can leave work early and be home for trick-or-treaters.
So this is just a quick entry. Here are some other interesting things to read instead:
- Jack Monroe replies to the Daily Mail’s characterizing her as not a ‘real’ poor person because she has a job(?), but also didn’t have a job (?) and has tattoos and stuff. Seriously, I know she’s not had an easy go of dealing with some of the lesser mortals of the media, and isn’t 100% patient with her critics, but in her position, I’d have just started screaming ‘FUCK ALL Y’ALL I’M OUT’ weeks/months ago.
- All of I Fucking Love Science is wonderful. But this will make you think about otters and other ‘adorable’ creatures in a different, more sinister and, frankly, far more disgusting way.
- A Reddit (oh, shush) thread of the best ‘walks into a bar’ jokes, because, well, levity. The whale one is wonderful.
- The Toast and Jezebel‘s spooky story threads. Read in a well-lit room. Boo.
