Sorry, guys. Work Day here, so no time for a post. Just some links.
OMG. People are seriously talking about Martial Law. Um, please stop. Look, I was very upset about what happened to some of my favorite streets of Manhattan. I foresee long term repercussions; cities will never be the same. I feel really bad for local businesses in the Bronx. But the worst is over. Now, we have to rebuild our country and repay those businesses.
Here in the New York City Metro area, there is a long standing rivalry between Jersey and Long Island. We’re all Bridge and Tunnel people, but we each like to point to the other as the worst possible place on the planet. (Psst it’s Long Island) So, when Long Island was trending on twitter for the worst possible reasons today, I couldn’t help but be amused.
Recent purchases on Amazon: hand weights, because I’m actually doing tv workouts even though I feel stupid; an electric kettle, because I have a bad track record of torching stove ones; printer ink, because the home schoolers burn through it. I just got a box from Stitch Fix, because I needed something to make me smile.
We were planning on going to Venice this summer. I wanted to show it to the kids before it sank into the sea. Sigh. Maybe next summer. Glad the city is having some much deserved peace from tourists.
On topics related to race, I do think that, as a Karen, I really should defer to the experts. I support the effort, but I think it’s best to let other people do the talking. In the past couple of days, I’ve seen quite a few people make missteps.
I’m ready to talk about police reform. Happily. Joyfully. But another day.
