We had a kids and a bunch of grandkidlets around all day. and the rains came, so, everything was indoors.
Had to take several "Smoke Breaks" and go hang out on the porch for a breather.

Being an introvert can be tough when yer a grandperson.

CBD was a life-saver.

Oh dangit.

One of our neighbors, a nice lady in her 80s or so, came to the house this morning to give us some misdelivered mail, and I answered the door wearing an Andrew WK bloody nose shirt, plus there was a pile of pizza boxes sitting right outside the front door, so it looks like we just open the door and throw the trash into the front yard. (I am going to flatten them and put them under the mulch as weed barriers, but I have not done so yet.)

At least Zsa Zsa busted out the front door and made the lady give her scritches.

bey (pronounced bae) and I went and saw this show last night:

Hannah Gadsby - Douglas

It was fucking great. I can't remember when I've laughed so hard. The crowd was really great, too.

Now I need you guys to talk me in to going to this tonight:

Afterglow | Exploratorium

I fuckin love Reggie Watts, but can I really go up to the city 2 nights in a row? Is such a thing even possible? I'm not a millennial after all.

Reason one, personal connection:
I knew one of the head exhibit designers there and poked around at her internet display exhibits. I wonder if she finished her transition.

Reason two, quotation:

Hey, I went to this! It was pretty great, I'm glad I went.

There were a lot of people there to did not know or care who Reggie Watts was. (Which, wtf were they spending their money for? The open bar?) The sound was not great, so nobody could really hear anything except those right at the stage. Fortunately, it was not difficult to get up there, so it ended up feeling kind of intimate as he did a show for about 10 rows of people right in front of him. And he did not appear to give a fuck, either, trolling in his style that he does. People were bouncing balloons around and the couple times he got one, he held it up in an "Alas, poor Yorick!" pose, silent and motionless for tens of seconds. There was one guy high as balls who was experiencing him for the first time and he was absolutely losing his shit. Shouting about "Bring it home, REGGIE!" shit like that. I don't know, maybe you had to be there. It was fun.

Oh! Also you guys would have died at my awesome flex at some unsuspecting guy who thought it would be a good idea to engage a stranger about math.

I was spacing out in the Exploratorium, eyeballing this video that was showing someone plotting a function on graph paper, and this dude swaggers up with this amazing conversation starter: "what's going on here?"
me: "it's x squared"
him: "you think it's y equals x squared?"
me: "yeah"
him: "ah, so it's exponential"
me: "it's quadratic"
him: "huh?"
me: "it's a parabola. It's quadratic, not exponential"

And then he just walked away. Can you believe that? :blank:

Another high point, I got my first "that's the year my mom was born!" from the precious ingénu who checked my ID at the door. :pat:
