Life keeps taking some people away, and trying to take others. Tough trend this month.

Comment

Yes, that is tough indeed, may the trend stop.

Finally checked out the town speakeasy. Will be returning again sometime.

Cats were much needed and appreciated this evening.

Almost, Canada. Two more chances, though.

Wednesday night could bring the Cup to my local team for the second straight year. (I could never become a Bruins fan, though.)

The word "grimace" will forever have me thinking of a big purple blobby thing.

An idea for "breakfast for dinner" -- carbonara. Covers your bacon and eggs.

Lazy me did not make this idea a reality today.

Better today. I ate well.

I cannot recall needing to have the heat on at night in mid-May. Usually, it is already warm enough outside.

Comment

I almost turned the heat back on last night but bundled up in the bed instead; made me so sad.

We thought we were done with using the wood stove twice and were wrong both times. Yesterday's high was 48 degrees. Sigh.

I need to make sure to eat more. This is especially true when getting deep into discussion with people online. With me, that usually takes the form of writing a ton (getting everything in with one essay up front because I only have one chance to prove/explain myself), in an effort to defend myself and not appear to be stupid/dumb/moronic, just to be told some variation of "You are overthinking this." At least I have more control this way.

This is a good weekend to be sitting in the sun by a pool with a drink served in a pineapple. Be safe out there if you are in the rain or the snow.

I've never had a drink served in a pineapple but would like to try one!

With the taxes all filed ($$$$$$$$$$$$$... ugh), time to move on with the rest of the year.

Men are the problem.

Comment

True, but really it's the system that's the problem, because it lets men "be men." I.e., I don't think you are the problem, just because you are a man.

I keep driving by Stop & Shop workers on strike when leaving or coming home. (The grocery store is just on the edge of the neighborhood.) What am I even supposed to be doing with/for them?

Comment

Shop at grocery stores that are unionized.

There's a thread with alternatives to Stop & Shop in the three states that have strikes: https://twitter.com/AFLCIO/status/1117105395305254912

Honks of support are always appreciated (in addition to not crossing the picket line).

Even when I rudely shove myself into the collective face of the whole wide world, why am I so invisible?

Comment

I usually do the exact opposite just to not be (and not be seen being) rude. However, that means being invisible due to not being truly present. Yielding is a horrible thing.

One of three tax returns filed -- from the former state. It was the one that I had to have filed by tomorrow. Federal and current state are not due until Wednesday because of state and DC holidays the next two days.

Comment

Maryland got me pretty good, too. Still, not being able to itemize is crushing me. Thank goodness for being ready for it.

Comment

I am planning to do revisions on all of this if I can. Definitely overpaying Maryland, though it is complicated to figure out when my Massachusetts residency began and when I can count my Maryland residency as having ended. I had at least one paycheck taxed in both places. Slightly regretting not getting a CPA as one of my first orders of business once I settled in back in January.

Eldrick does not need a backiotomy, as it appears that he may be back. I do think that the other golfers faltered simply because they saw who was in contention.
