november sixth

Five for November 6th:

Friday morning. Woke up to a box of donuts from Donut Drive-In on the front porch, courtesy of Laura. Possibly one of the best apple fritters I’ve ever had (and not just because it was totally unexpected).

30 years of Bernie Sanders speeches. My friend Justin put it best: “How many contradictions would a look back at Hillary's statements from 1985 onward reveal? If you hate politics because of politicians, you finally have a chance to vote for the real deal.”

Shaving with clippers. It’s the best thing ever. You can shave in 2 minutes, have a perfect five-o’clock shadow, and never have to worry about razorburn or blotchy skin, to say nothing of the money you spend not buying razorblades. I haven’t close-shaved in almost a year.

Cool stuff. Much-needed new headphones for the e-drums, Disney Screens Star Wars: The Force Awakens For Terminally Ill Fan, Archaeologists To Ben Carson: Ancient Egyptians Wrote Down Why The Pyramids Were Built, caffeine cruise, Paradise Lost at the Moonhole Mansion: An Abandoned Crusoe Dream.

Weekend action. A couple of days of nice weather and few plans means hanging out with the kids, maybe a skate/bmx session or two, some raking of leaves and maybe a backyard BBQ while the gettin’ is still good.
