Reading...Out of the Easy ETA finished that last night, library day today!
Watching...nothing. I haven't watched TV at home this week. At the shore Sunday I caught a few episodes of Naked and Afraid. I love that show.
Listening to...All E-Street Radio, all the time. And some Prince tributes here and there.
Searching for...a waterproof watch that doesn't look like a plastic dork mess and isn't a trillion dollars. I finally found one for $60 I can clean with at the shore, wear in the ocean, and all that stuff so I'll pull my phone out less as a time telling device. Thanks, Overstock. Next up: pocket digital camera. Do you see the rely on phone less theme here?
Wearing...Pixie pants from Old Navy, daily. They're my uniform.
Honey Lavender Yogi tea too.
Trying...to get my summer schedule down for the weekends. When will I be home? Rarely. When will I be out of town? Most of the time. LOL
Stalking...A number of contractors at the shore. Mama's on a tight timeline. Weekend renters start on 5/11 and we're full up through Labor Day. The window for doing any inside work has gotten significantly smaller. Installation of a new split duct AC/heating unit on the main floor began yesterday. Huzzah! Exterior painters, drywall people, and handyman, please come through for me for the finishing touches.
Moving...shit around in the basement. Still. Ho hum. I could've done some last night but instead I got into bed before 8. I needed to. I would really like to finish this project up this weekend. Our Lady of Victory, pray for us.
Loving...When the skies open up after a hard rain.
Hating...The anti-transgender shit thinly disguised as concern for women and children in public bathrooms. First of all, we've all been going to the bathroom with transgender people for years, we just didn't know it because no one is required to flash their private parts to go to the bathroom in a public restroom. Secondly, I have used the men's room a million times because the lines in the women's rooms are out of control. Will I be arrested now? Third, if you are worried about men pretending to be women so they have easy access to women and children alone in bathrooms, see below. Fourth, if you think for a fucking second that rapists or molesters have any respect for "safe places," or that safe places even exist you are sadly mistaken. You have not been concerned about our safety on streets in daylight or at night, in parks, in parking garages, at concerts, in schools or dorms or pews or stores or anywhere, so don't get in a huff about us peeing next to transgender people in public restrooms to suit your personal agenda. NEWSFLASH: We're always at risk. Kids have been molested IN CHURCHES. By PRIESTS. Women have been assaulted EVERYWHERE, including at their workplaces, in their own rooms at college, and in their own homes, by people they know and people they don't. Women and children get attacked and raped all across this country every day and no one gives a fuck until now, when people want to pee with people they look like instead of where the genitals they were born with say they should pee. Stop using your fear of something you don't understand as an excuse to vilify people who are different than you and concentrate your energy on making rape culture die an immediate death, making it shameful for the perpetrator and not for the victims, and prosecuting actual rapists and pedophiles swiftly and severely instead of putting the onus on victims to just deal with it, brushing it off, showing leniency because they're "good people," or saying she asked for it. The former Speaker of the House and child molester just got two years of supervised release. Supervised release...really. Be concerned about that bullshit, and the message that extremely lenient sentence sends to the people he abused and to others afraid to come forward against their abusers because of the shit they'll have to go through just for their abuser to get off with like no punishment. I have no time for this fake, very convenient concern bullshit. It's enough.
Looking forward to...three concerts this summer, said the non-concert goer. Dolly Parton on June 15 with MFD; Paul Simon on June 25 with MFD, Stephen & Aubrey; and the Counting Crows August 10 with Melissa and Debbie for sure and maybe a few other ladies too. Considering The Beach Boys in OCNJ in July.
What's going on with you?
