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.
Natter 77: I miss my friends. I miss my enemies. I miss the people I talked to every day.
Off-topic discussion. Wanna talk about corsets, duct tape, butt kicking, or physics? This is the place. Detailed discussion of any current-season TV must be whitefonted.
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.
Oh god, yeah, definitely go to a place that specializes in piercings. Claire's (or anything similar) is awful.
