What Did You Do On Your Day Off?

I had a four-day weekend scheduled because originally we thought we were going to be out of town. Plans changed, but I decided to keep the time off to decompress from everything.

The first day of this long weekend I drank many strong cuppa teas and have a mug of hot goodness to my right as I type. I read some blogs, but decided it would be more fun to set my iTunes on the new Genius cycle and let it create a play list for me. OH. MY. GOD. I don't think I could have created a better play list myself. That turned into an hour or more of me freaking out my dogs by singing loudly along with every single song that came up. It's a perk I don't get to enjoy much because that sort of thing doesn't go over well at work. Go figure.

This afternoon, I got in a hair cut from my recently returned stylist, Danielle. She had deserted Jamestown for the wilds of Willoughby, Ohio for 8 months but decided she missed home too much. I'm a very happy girl with a nice hair cut. It's a long, layered style so even though it may look a little short in the front, the back is long. And yes, that sweet green color behind me is one of the walls in our kitchenette. We (aka Matt) painted our entire kitchen that color per my request after we moved in.

Away, Away

We're on a mini-vaca in an area where they're experiencing forest fires (thanks asshole arsonist). It's an area that makes Clifton Hill in Niagara Falls, Ontario look rinky dinky. Holy cow. Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg is no joke. Tomorrow we try to escape it and find some peace and nature in the (literally) Smoky Mountains.

Bloggery (a repost)

I wrote this on another site:
Perhaps I'm too old for the reveal-all-confessional type of blogging but reading claw marks lately makes me want to start blogging again to at least expand upon the thoughts I wouldn't otherwise write out in a Facebook post or vague tweet.
A couple of years ago, I took the month of February off from Facebook under the premise that the time I wasn't wasting on Facebook could be channeled into other things. I blogged quite a bit, I read a few books, got out a little, and generally tried to avoid looking at anything on there. It wasn't perfect, by far. A fair amount of friends still use Facebook to communicate about social events and general happenings, so I was out of the loop on all of that, thus defeating part of my goal to be in better touch with hanging out with them. Weird how that shit works.
Ultimately, I think I want more conversation. The introvert in me loves social media because it allows me form a complete thought and reply to wha…

[UPDATED VERSION!] The Trouble With The Electoral College

In light of this week's Presidential election, here's an update on why the Electoral College is awful. Watch the original video after this short update:


[UPDATE] The YouTuber went back and did ANOTHER update to correct himself on some issues. It's also worth watching especially because one part of it reminded me of the awful governing situation we have in New York State that is referred to as "3 men in a room."
