SL 789

Great day here. Chugging through a nice writing project. Had a walk and a run already. Afterwards, I bought some cheap running t-shirts and semolina flour from Amazon.

I sent in a form for my local CSA. Sure, we could go to the farmer’s market, but picking up the veggies might be a fun activity for the boys this summer.

I’m kinda loving this list of shopping fun from BuzzFeed.

Speaking of interesting stories about dubious people, are you following the Matt Lauer-Ronan Farrow-Ben Smith saga? It’s fun.

Great pictures of Brooklyn.

  2. I saw the Ben Smith story on Ronan Farrow. I find it funny that Smith says he doesn’t make things up, then uses innuendo to suggest he does. That seems like exactly what Smith accuses Farrow of doing.

    I also think Farrow must have another big story that the press has been covering up.

    1. Tulip, there is some speculation that what Farrow is up to is a story on Biden’s history with the ladies, and that this is an attempt to defend Biden. That this makes some sense to me is a real testament to the extent that the press is now a participant in our politics, rather than actually, well, reporting…
