Thursday Thoughts - for once in your life, here's your miracle

1. It's happening. It’s allll happening. It's light later. 17 days until Daylight Saving, 24 days until my birthday, 28 days until spring.

2. In honor of Toni Morrison's birthday Tuesday. Sent to me by my mom.

3. Back to making a version of poop soup which I used to feed Gus for him and Mae. Homecooking for dogs. They have the life. I get pissed when I have to cook for myself during the week but I will cook for those old dogs any time.

4. And The Bed Saga continues.
5. Let's just go three for three on doggish things and talk about how Good Dog has stellar fries and is a super solid lunch spot in the city. 
6. What I've been gorging on this week: my mom's brownie bites. 
7. I organized the shelf in my laundry area that is ugly as sin and needs a complete do-over along with about a million things in this house but it's amazing how something so small makes such a huge difference. I can get on a roll sometimes but I really like small and quick organizing projects. 

8. Inquiring minds want to know: how many alarms do you set in the morning? I set two alarms 20 min apart, the second is the in case of emergency alarm and that is typically going off when i get out of the shower. Are you a snoozer? I used to be a snoozer but I broke myself of that. 

9. Reminder: Be a good girl when you want to be. If that's never, that's fine. That's just fine.

10. Ecards: 

Since I went after Bloomberg yesterday (and candidates rightfully did the same in the debate last night), my only post-debate comment is people must chill over "infighting." Do you know how much these people have on the line? How much time, energy, and money they've already spent, the enormous scrutiny and pressure they're under? We're narrowing the field, of course there's going to be infighting. I'd rather see people speak and work with passion than be up on stage like a dead piece of cardboard sharing milky tea politely with others. Politeness and an unwillingness to really get into things like racism, misogyny, and classism have contributed to where we are. It'll be fine. Stop talking about electability and polls and vote for your candidate in the primary. When primary season is over we move on to the general election. But in every and all cases if you care about this but the only thing you're doing is wringing your hands on social media, you are part of the problem. Put your shoulder into this and do something. If you are not a door knocker or a phone call maker there are post cards to write, texts to send, money to donate. Do something.

What appears after the hyphen in Thursday Thoughts is a song lyric to whatever I'm listening to when I start to write the post. This week is This is It by Kenny Loggins
