I’m re-watching “The L Word”, I’m in the middle of season 4 just before the show became terrible. My latest episode originally aired in February 2007 and I love seeing how it’s obviously dated. Everybody has cell phones now, mostly flip phones. (In the pilot episode constant flip phone use was a signal to the audience that one woman was a hard-driving work-focused art world go-getter.) A musician referred to all the songs his band was putting up on MySpace. Assorted George W. Bush comments. Don’t Ask Don’t Tell still very much the policy. A character saying “I can do a computer search” in more than one episode. “Hey Max can you help me find somebody I went to summer camp with?” “Yeah, I can do a computer search.” It might have been written before Facebook opened to the public.

Hey 2007, you’re adorable.

Last week I was extra low on sleep due to assorted reasons and I called it early Friday night, asleep at 9:45 p.m. I woke up at 8:30 a.m. to walk the dog and went back to bed an hour later. I woke up again at 1:40 p.m. to start my day in the afternoon after almost 16 hours of sleep like the good Lord intended. I was sore and dehydrated and it was worth it.

This skirt washed out in the picture, appearing whiter than it does in regular normal life. Just like my skin, haha! Just kidding, my skin is in fact that white.

Saturday Styles

What I Wore on the Weekend: April 25, 2015
Tshirt: Target
Shorts: Old Navy, new
Sandals: Target / Sneakers: Payless

At some point it would make sense to create a new category and tag to accommodate the What I Wore Not at Work posts. It sure would make sense.

I started Saturday with my hair down and sandals as I went out in public to do things like, I dunno, get lunch or buy stuff at Target. Later I was on my feet in the kitchen cooking, washing dishes, and cleaning so I switched to comfortable running shoes and put my hair in a ponytail. I always pull my hair back when cooking.

I was looking for a notepad with blank pages this afternoon and came across a To Do list dated May 6, 2014. Item #2: “Put away Xmas lights.” Just the usual late spring chores.

Jury is still out

One of my online shopping expeditions this year was close to the free shipping amount. I found this top in the clearance section – I could buy it and get free shipping, or not buy it and pay the same total cost. So I bought it and have worn it twice. The jury is still out.

I was on a jury once a couple autumns ago. The trial was going to be for six weeks with charges including felony murder, which is when you’re committing a felony and somebody dies and you can be charged for the death. For example, you are participating in armed robbery and kidnapping and some stuff goes down and people end up dead. Even if you didn’t fire the weapon that killed somebody, your felonies surrounding the death support a felony murder charge.

On the first day of the trial, after a few days of jury selection, 16 of us sat in the jury recess room. After waiting for an extra hour, we filed into the jury box. The judge thanked us for our service, said the state and the defendant had agreed to a plea, and we were dismissed. We filed back to the jury room, where the lead attorneys for each side came back to give us more information about the case that wasn’t going to trial after all. The defense was going to argue that their client was there to buy the drugs fair and square and was unaware that his associates were planning a robbery. The prosecution was going to argue that obviously he wasn’t planning to pay based on the little cash and lots of weapons he brought with him and other factors. Most witnesses were not cooperating and at least one of the injured men was killed in a different drug-related robbery a couple months after this one.

Work-free Monday

Blouse: Gap, gift from a friend in 2010
Pants: Banana Republic

I gave myself a Monday off work a month ago because I was feeling burned out. I did a lot of fun things over that long weekend, including dressing nicer than my usual jeans and t-shirt one day and planting marigolds and some small bulbs. The bulbs should have been planted months before, so we’ll see together if they bloom. Stay tuned!
