• At my favorite cafe, and two college aged women are discussing and geeking out over the Marvel Cinematic Universe. My elder geek heart is full and happy!

  • May Photo Challenge: experimental. It describes my approach to the world of tea. (This is an oolong!) 📷 🫖

  • May Photo challenge: Photo. A hastily taken pic, me with my dad and my sister,, before I run for a train to see her. 📷

  • Day 1 Photoblogging Challenge: Switch. 📷

  • First night of my birthday weekend, with a concert and an (offscreen) Kentucky mule. 🎵

  • A brilliant idea at this conference - a swag swap. Get rid of unwanted items in your swag bag, maybe score an item you do want instead. Go home with less and more desired stuff!

  • At a conference, and the organizers have placed the caffeine at the far end of the vendor room. Crafty, organizers, crafty.

  • There is a new couple at my favorite cafe, enjoying some tea and crepes. It’s clearly their second or third date, and they are totally into each other. It is absolutely adorable.

  • At a beloved bakery/bar’s reopening. They’re playing awesome 80s rock while slinging out cocktails and pastries. THIS is why I moved to the city! 🎵 🍸🥐

  • When buying a $2,000 appliance, it is important to trust the company you buy it from. This joke taped to the wall showed me I could trust these people!

  • Work was awful, I’m feeling disconnected from friends, and my washing machine just announced it’s retiring, leaving me with soggy clothes and the burnt smell of a busted motor. Le sigh. 😫

  • Observatory night! 🔭📷

  • Just finished The Disaster Artist. It took me 3 hours to watch, as I had to pause whenever Tommy’s cringe became too much to bear. Still a worthwhile viewing! 📽

  • I’m going to start an exclusive movie watching club. Membership is through being secretly observed three times as you watch a movie at the cinema to show you know how to behave appropriately at the movies. 📽

  • Watched an advance screening of Everything Everywhere All At Once last night. It nails the landing on every chance it takes, has amazing fight scenes and editing, and still manages to be a heartfelt story about the love of family and taking your opportunities. 📽 📽

  • When the server says “what size”, I need to stop saying “lots.”

  • Just finished The Rabbi’s Cat. Sharp witted and warm hearted French animation at its finest! Highly recommended, but maybe wait until the kids are older, n’est-pas? 📽

  • How Saturn Got It’s Rings

    I find it incredible that the dinosaurs are older than these rings. Had they the ability, what would they have named the moon that was doomed to break up?

  • I actually went to a people thing! A poly meetup just a few blocks from me. And I stayed longer than an hour! Go me! 🏅

  • I am so, so, so much happier when I don’t doomscroll tech blogs. I can’t say I’m missing much professionally or personally, either.

  • Have you ever felt guilty for pausing one book, because you really want to start another? Did it help that the other book was part of a series? Asking for a friend. 📚

  • Northampton hasn’t lost all of its whimsy. 📷

  • Spoiler alert: this place definitely has books you need. It is almost impossible to find, though.📷 📚

  • “Hi, do you-“ “Yes.” “Er, I-“ “Yes.” “How do you know-“ “The answer is always Yes.”

  • Tea, a muffin, and some good classic rock at this cafe to start the morning. 📷 🎵
