2016-09-05-07-18-03We live across the road from a large cemetery, which is a wonderful place for going for walks. The full perimeter is almost 3 miles, and if we get out nice and early in the morning, it’s a great way to get some light exercise and wake up.

In the fall and in the spring, the cemetery is also a favorite rest stop for migrating geese! They’re pretty chill for geese, and let us just walk on by while they graze in the fields and amongst the headstones.

Apparently this summer’s trend in beer is to do grapefruit themed beers, and every time I see one all I can think of is this incredibly accurate comic. Sadly, I cannot figure out who  the original artist is on it — I find it posted without attribution on a couple of Tumblr blogs, and that’s it. So if anybody knows who MG is so that I can credit properly, please let me know!

Side note: I actually don’t like blueberries, either. When picking them out of a yogurt parfait last weekend, my husband asked me if blueberries were grapefruit-bad. I let him know that NOTHING is grapefruit bad, except a grapefruit.

2016-08-01 14.09.40Yeah, that’s right, I’m definitely on the Pokemon Go bandwagon.  I’m only level 13 so far, and have never controlled a gym, but you know what? I’m having a ton of fun. I like catching Pokemon, love that my desire to hatch eggs encourages me to get out on my walks with more energy, and I’ll admit — I love taking pictures. I especially enjoy when I can take a picture that makes it look like the Pokemon is truly interacting with the world around me.

I’m just grateful that my husband, despite not playing himself, is not only understanding, but encouraging of my latest pastime, often reminding me that we’re in a Pokestop heavy area and I should stock up on Pokeballs!

My friend Whitney Avalon has been making these amazing Princess Rap Battles for a couple of years now. Every one of them is great fun to watch, but in honor of the Robin Hood Festival’s upcoming Wizarding Weekend, I thought I’d share this one. Starring Whitney Avalon as Katniss, and Molly C. Quinn as Hermione Granger.

Thanks to the goofiness of my friends Lauren and Rachel, I nearly always have a Loki action figure in my purse. He doesn’t come out often, but sometimes pictures with him are just a thing that has to happen. The entire purpose of today’s post is to share with you some of the shenanigans he’s gotten up to since he’s been hanging out with me.

Sometimes, Loki goes fabric shopping with me.


And sometimes, he goes to the Asgaard Wing of the museum to look at portraits of himself.
