Well, it's official. I don't have bed bugs!
(But I knew that).
I had a Bug Guy come out to my house to look at my forest-facing basement room that I get some rather gnarly bug bites in. Bug Guy did not see any bugs. I could have told him that there would not be an obvious solution or else I would have solved this mystery 8 months ago! Great to a get a second opinion nonetheless. And Bug Guy put down some cool bug traps. I wonder what we will find.
I have been paddle boarding on the weekends. Now that I have a standup paddleboard (cool kids and my mom are calling it a SUP), I am have become somewhat of a river rat (RR). In fact, I even see the same river rat, AKA nutria, every Saturday around noon. At first I thought it was a beaver, but then I saw its gross thin tail. I also regularly see a bald eagle friend and one time I even saw a deer napping down by the water.
My birthday came and went! I got to see a Thorns FC game. When I tell you the Thorns scored three times in the first 11 minutes, I am not lying. So do not call me a liar. The Thorns are just simply that good. They even finished the game 5-0 against Gotham FC. Batman is going to have some words for them on the bus ride home.
On a much sadder note, someone in my improv community passed away this week after a tough bout with some ongoing health issues. We were able to gather online with people across the country to tell stories about their life which was really lovely and a wonderful reminder of how many people we touch with our lives. So remember to treat those around you with kindness and joy. You have a greater impact than you know!
Now for something a little lighter, I got the Wordle in one guess this week. Then the next day I got it in just two guesses. I am on fire, but that is somewhat expected for an experienced puzzle-solver like myself.
I had avocado toast this weekend. It was my first time ordering it at a restaurant. I am finally coming into my Millennial Final Form.
Bo the Dog, the Director of Barketing at work, celebrated his 14th birthday. To celebrate, we made some fake magazine covers with his photos. They were a real hit. Another testament to my ability to doctor photos using PowerPoint. What a powerful program.
I'm sure other things happened recently. After all, I did finally get those sunglasses I ordered in the mail. Review below.
Stay cool in this heat wave and don't forget to listen to Beyoncé.
