Readers: Is there anything I can take a photo of, and post, that you'd like to see? If the request is reasonable (i.e. I'm not going to post my ass--Aw man, now I have upset the zero people who want to see my ass!), I will do it.

Dating this a year in the future because I only have like 3 friends at the moment... :D

I'm super excited that the city gave me (us all) a new trash can. We could choose S, M or L. I'm sure for some people, an L isn't even big enough (some people throw away sooooo much stuff). I don't throw much away, and plus it's just me, Sophie the cat, and several robot vacuums here. I'd probably have been fine with an S. The M is pretty big!

This is the next step on our billion-year journey toward recycling (began only because our landfill is not only finally full but also leeching into the ground... because it was originally lined with clay and never meant to last more than 50 years, and this was probably 75+ years ago... good planning, guys).

So now our can is just part of the trash service we pay for. I think having to use a can will get people to throw less away.

The cans are designed so that one person driving a truck can do all the work, without getting out of the truck. I wonder what will happen to the other people. It used to be someone driving the truck and 2-3 more people hanging off the back/sides. Maybe they work elsewhere for the city now. Or maybe they are on unemployment.

The can is made in the USA. I don't know how/why that happened, but I was happy to see it. It's a nice can, too. BUT IS IT BEAR-PROOF?

I am perplexed where it warns users not to put it near roads/driveways. It has to be near a road/driveway in order to be used. In fact, it has to be as near the road as possible so the garbage truck's arm or whatever can pick it up. They're not going to drive into your garage and get it for you.

When I was on Livejournal, I seemed to post about the 4th of July every year. Every year, I would talk about how fireworks were so romantic, and how I just wanted to share the day/night with someone. I tried to share it with her, over the last 6 years (or 5, however many there were). It was never that great. She wasn't into it, and I don't blame her. Whole thing is stupid. I guess she ruined it for me.

This year, I'm not thinking about loneliness or how romantic fireworks are. I'm just thinking how annoying they are, how they frighten people with PTSD, babies, wildlife, domestic non-humans, how they keep me awake, how I am forced to have my windows closed and my a/c running (which doesn't actually seem to work--it's hotter in here than outside!)...

How terribly American, to celebrate by being totally inconsiderate, noisy, stupid, and blowing stuff up. What a fine tradition we pass down.

Never put all your faith and money into a relationship. Even Elaine and Guybrush broke up before Monkey Island 2 started. And then Disney ripped Monkey Island off for the Pirates of the Carribbean ride/films. All this began with fireworks. Nothing there but trouble.

Who was the last person you texted?
I hope the font isn't screwed up this time.  It was either my brother or DeAna/Annette.

How can you prove your love to someone?
OMG...  Every time I turn off bold, it unbolds everything.  Why can't they make this work the way you'd expect it to?  Anyway, you prove your love by being there, dependable as a goddamn boring stone, until they get sick of you and leave you.  No greater love than that.  As soon as they see you're human, even if it takes 6 years, they will leave, and then you question everything about yourself and the universe.  That's how you prove your love.  You can never prove love anyway.  We're all as fickle as the leaves on trees, changing our colors and dropping in the slightest gust of wind.

What sports do you play?
I don't sport.

Who is the first person in your contacts?
Oh, this must be from when people spent time on their computers instead of their phones, and you could arrange your chat contact list?

I don't expect anyone will read this, much less do it, but I had fun )

My shirt is too tight, but I'm digging my made in LA clearance chambray shorts.

I got to work at 8, but I wasn't awake until after 11.

I'm really happy with these shorts, Finnistre or something. They're apparently a British brand but made in Portugal. I sometimes worry Portugal is the sweatshop of Europe, but the price would indicate otherwise. I got them on clearance, thinking it was the normal, reasonable price, and then I saw they are actually way more expensive. Cool. They are long enough that they sometimes even cover my embarrassing knees. And they are kind of dressy and kind of stretchy. Do Not Tumble Dry. Fancy.

I wore my surf shirt today from Wellen Surf Co and a pink American Giant San Francisco shirt (I wanted to make the Cali kids feel comfy)

Went for brown shoes (San Antonio Shoemakers) and brown belt (RPMWest, RIP), blue purple and grey socks because I don't have much variety to choose from in short socks (Pact fair trade organic cotton socks grown/made in India) and don't know where to get any more

American Giant sweatshirt, flint and tinder tshirt, mollusk surf co hat, RPMWest (rip) denim jeans-- I got asked again if I wanted the military discount.

I chose my color palette based on this thingy from the internet. I don't know if it worked!

Classic shoe on sink pose. I don't think my shoes/socks match the outfit. I swapped shoes because it was raining, and I didn't want to get my brown shoes wet (although I don't know if brown would have matched, and the socks probably still would not have matched?).

I colored my shoes with a highlighter. No more Packers colors! Got sick of people thinking I liked football when I don't.

When I was a kid, we got embarrassed if our knees ever showed in our shorts. My how styles have changed. Now I'm just happy to keep my inner-thighs covered.

Flint and Tinder made in Texas Oxford, American Giant t-shirt, Flint and Tinder shorts

I think my shorts match, but they don't really "go" with the outfit. Looked better on the hanger! I think maybe a darker top would have worked better, or lighter bottom. Hm.

Socks? Yeah, don't think they match. I don't have many short socks to choose from.

I hope someday I get used to shorts that only go to the top of my knees. Any longer is now fashion murder, according to the kids, almost as bad as wearing black with brown! (I still don't get that one.) Maybe once my knees get a little more sun it'll be okay. I am such a strangely-colored person.
