I don’t know if anyone reading this remembers my brief war for mayorship of the public library near my house, but I do. I remember it like it was yesterday. Well, speaking of yesterday, Ian and I met one of our neighbors and were hanging out with him and at one point he was like I know you from somewhere and a moment later he was like, “The Library. You stole my mayorship. I was so mad I went to the library to steal it back from you when I got the notice I was ousted. And then just two days later you took it back again and I said to a friend, ‘I guess he might actually go to the library more than I do.’”
It felt really good to know that my library war was not one sided. I only use foursquare to check into the library in my daily life because I feel it’s that important and just so you know I am still mayor to this day. I am that blessed.
Today is the last full day of vacation in Florida. We travel back home, but there are severe storm warnings in Boston (& the northeast in general) so let’s hope we get home tomorrow afternoon when we’re supposed to arrive.
Either the cable connecting my camera to my laptop is broken or the port on my camera is broken which means I can’t upload any pictures from my trip since I did the other day. Let’s hope it’s just the cable.
I have to get a new car when I get back from vacation, because the gas tank in my car started leaking gas and it’s not cost effective to fix it. So that sucks.
Ian & I are going to start apartment hunting when I get back too which should be fun. I think I need to get a second job or pick up some freelance writing again to cover the cost of all that.
I didn’t write as much as I wanted to while on vacation.
I finished Americanah the other day and it was just beautiful.
I think this fall I am getting my first tattoo. I want to a palm tree(s) incorporated into it, but am having a hard time finding something I like. I also want to get two things representing my two boys and have some ideas, but I don’t want anything cheesy. If you’ve seen something cool send me links or something.
I went to a bar last night after working 12 hours, because sometimes you need to do those things. I met my boyfriend and a friend there and they had been drinking, they been drinking. Anyway, there were these two girls sitting with them when I got there and one of them thought I was straight. I met my boyfriend at a gay bar on karaoke night run by lesbians ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
