I battle evil. But I don't really win. The bad keeps coming back and getting stronger. Like that kid in the story, the boy that stuck his finger in the duck.

Fandom means never having to say "But where would I wear that?"

Timelies all!

As usual, getting routine maintenance done on the car turned up other things that needed to be taken care of. I had them do the most urgent things, as doing all the things would have been more than I wanted to spend.

I got in a brisk 8 mile walk in the redwoods this morning. Lots of other folks at the park, lots of muddy dogs! It was nice.

You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

Now would be a good time to know who our accomplices are in the event that our marginalized buffistas need to relocate.

We went to a Celebration of Life for our friend who died in January. Plenty of music, as she was a musician. Nice to see how many people attended, both in person, and on Zoom.

My niece's 18th birthday is this week. It snuck up on me (denial?) I was thinking of getting her a gift card, but how much is appropriate these days? I remember getting a $100 gift card for graduating from high school (RIP Britches), so presumably more than that? I suppose I could ask her parents too, but I think that they'll lowball out of politeness.

more than $100 seems like way too much to me but I am not a parent

I love a nice round number for gifts and think $100 is a generous (and appropriate) amount for the gift.

Agree with the above as $100 is a nice round generous number.

Why Monday? Oh well, I did actually have a weekend for a change so I'll deal.

My big plan for today is to go get my ears re-pierced. I let them close up by being lazy about wearing earrings but miss them. I am just a chicken, but have to remind myself that I have done it before. My first set I did myself when I was around 12.

Go Laura! I have let several ear piercings grow in (I used to have many in each ear and now only have 1) and it’s a little sad to me. But not sad enough that I’m doing anything about it.

Also sad: it’s Monday and I’m exhausted and I got up for a 730am call that was then canceled.

I was just going to go to Claire's but they seem to have a terrible reputation so I am going to a tattoo/piercing joint nearby that seems to have a great reputation.
