It’s been a lovely weekend here with Grape paying me a visit, the first guest to visit the Buddha Bungalow. It’s weird how much you don’t realize how much you miss someone that you used to see literally every day (we used to work together) until you only get to see them once every few months. Such is life, such is growing up, I guess.
Summer weekends are counting down, so I’m determined to make the most of them. Pool time, sun time and friend time continue to dominate, squeezing in a little work in between the play because I have to, determined to not let it run any good times.
I hope you’re not letting anything ruin your good times.
The internet? Whew. Just breathe. As always, I’ve tried to pick out mostly fun bits for these mostly not fun times.
Breakfast at Wimbledon today? Well, here’s a funny bit, and in case you wondered, the tennis whites-only uniform applies to every player.
Related: I just finished The Singles Game this week and it was really cute, if you are in need of a good beach read. But also, 1) I love tennis and 2) if I could have any profession without regard to skill or money, I would be a professional athlete, so there’s my added appeal.
Too old for a night out? 37 is the magic number according to this latest poll. After being called ma’am when I was at the club with Kettle Corn this past March (we were 35), I actually did consider our presence there tragic.
Child marriages? Still a thing. A very tragic thing.
It may still surprise you, but people can still be decently good.
Climate change? Yup. YUP. A deep and scary look.
Breaking! WILL SMITH is going to be the Genie in the new live-action Aladdin! If it can’t be Robin, if anyone, Will can do it justice.
Online dating is the worst, but maybe for these guys it will be the best. After 3 years, these two are going on the ultimate Tinder date!
Mental health days? In my old job we had a plethora of sick days and once a month I took a mental health day. They were always necessary.
Mood art? Text your mood to the SF MOMA and you’ll get some back!
In loving memory…these are the best!
Have a great week!
