Thursday Thoughts - Moons and Junes and Ferris wheels

1. Shit MFD has done this week: Taken Mae into Wawa. Bought king size Twizzlers for a road trip like we'll be traveling in the Willy Wonka mobile. Put ketchup on his are with someone for 19 years, you think you know them, then one Tuesday night they calmly put ketchup on their hotdog and you are questioning a lot of things. MUSTARD ONLY! Mustard only. Our friend group is fiercely divided. Which side are you on?
2. Sunsets have been meh this summer - like around 6 there seems to be a layer of cloud that takes up residence closer to the horizon and the sunset is washed out or a lack of clouds anywhere in the sky which to me leads to the least interesting sunrises and sunsets. Tuesday night's was amazing though.
3. I crammed a desk and desk chair into our tiny shore apartment because my body could not take working from the couch anymore. Bruce, who normally sits on top of the couch cushions (see last photo), has used this time to explore a future in nude modeling for dogs. 
4. Speaking of work, two things: a) yesterday was my 13th anniversary with my company and b) I have no external deadlines this week for the first time in quite a while so I've been a whole ass person, easing into my mornings, taking lunch breaks, and doing things at night that involve logging off at 5. Like going to the beach and seeing sunsets and creeping on other people's flowers. 
5. In case you've not spoken with me face to face, I sound like this:
6. I'm down with my body, my choice being applied across the spectrum. If you don't want to get a vaccine, don't get one. You don't want to wear a mask, don't. I'm also down with unvaccinated and unmasked by choice people not being allowed entry into restaurants, bars, entertainment venues, stores, schools, work places. There's something going around the internet this week that explains it well, and I'm paraphrasing here but it's basically this: Being denied service or entry for something you can change is called a rule, which is a standard that goes against your sense of convenience. Example: no shirt, no shoes, no service; jacket or collar required in restaurant; must wear shoes in a factory. Being denied service or entry for something you cannot change is called prejudice, which is a standard that goes against your humanity. Example: being Black, gay, having a disability. The latter is a violation of your rights. The former is not. Don't get your poor choices twisted. 

7. Believe women even when the politician going down for being a gross sexual harasser is on your own side of the aisle. Andrew Cuomo must resign immediately and fuck off out of here. He does not belong in a position of power anywhere. 
8.Show Us Your Books is Tuesday. I've been surfing a swell of meh books. I hope that's not the same for you.

9. Reminder:

10. Ecards: 

A mini one, but still. What's new with you?
Happy birthday to my college roommate Jody!

What appears beyond the hyphen in Thursday Thoughts titles is what I'm listening to or most recently heard when I'm starting this - this week is Both Sides, Now by Joni Mitchell while listening to Ina Garten's Road Trip playlist
