I bought a new pair of men's black cargo shorts today which pretty much doubled my summer at-home-attire options. When my ex was here for Easter he and his wife and I were discussing clothing and how elastic waist pants just aren't as bad as we once thought they were. I extolled the comfort and utilitarianism of overalls and cargo pants, pointing out that I could get about half a dozen eggs in one pocket and enough greens to make a salad in the other of either garment.
For some reason my ex thought this was hysterical but I was being perfectly serious. Let us be practical.
Anyway, I went to town today and did some birthday shopping for Jessie. One is tempted to get her all baby-themed things but it is HER birthday and that child will be getting enough presents to fill a boat before he is born. So I tried to find things that would please her and I hope I did. I also got the cargo shorts for me and they are fine. I have indeed put eggs in a pocket and snow peas in another. I also pulled two carrots and some shallots for our supper. Oh, but it is an exciting life!
Another thing I bought was a Slip'n'Slide and I hope I don't regret that.
In political news, Justice Kennedy thinks that marriage has been defined the same way for "millennia." What fucking bullshit. That's all I have to say about that.
In Florida, the house Republicans decided they weren't getting their way and just shut the whole session down a few days early. Oh. Good idea, guys. You were doing such good work, trying to legislate what bathrooms people can use and requiring a twenty-four waiting period before a woman can get an abortion. Also, in Florida, this happened.
It's not political news but it sure is Florida.
So there you go. Fashion advice, gift giving, AND politics. Just to round things off let's throw this in there.
Some of it's absurd and some of it's entirely true. But for a real laugh, don't skip the ad that comes on before it starts if it's the one about Florida politics.
