Five for August 1st.
Weekendery. This was a good one. Got in some skating and BMX’ing at JB, an ice cream date with Jane, a trip to the pool, some drumming, a barbecue, hit a couple of playgrounds, and got a bunch of stuff done around the house- all in unseasonably nice weather.
Skate shoes. Picked up a new pair of Vans over the weekend after my last pair Cons from the Marshall's discount rack officially kicked the bucket- there was literally no grip left on them. Feels good to be back on the waffle soles.
The attic. Did some cleaning/rearranging up in the skate/music/game lair last night, tossed out a bunch of stuff, de-cluttered and just sorta made some sense of it. Plenty more to do ultimately, but it’s a start.
Cool stuff. Stranger Things to get second season, 30 years of the Screaming Hand, meet the big-name republicans supporting Clinton, Democrats become the party of security, patriotism, optimism—without becoming Republicans, bruschetta burgers, new gate for the living room, homemade tostadas,
Quote of the week. “Honestly, the main takeaway from these two [convention] weeks is that, incredibly, we may be on the brink of electing such a damaged, sociopathic narcissist that the simple presidential duty of comforting the families of fallen soldiers may actually be beyond his capabilities—and I genuinely did not think that was a part of the job that someone could be bad at.” -John Oliver
