An awesome, awesome thing.
"What did you do today, Beth?"
Well, I got lunch with an old friend from Kentucky I haven’t seen in a while, then I did a tv interview and found someone’s lost phone, which I gave to the MBTA employee. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve gotta go to Cape Cod and play sousaphone at a bakery. This makes no sense.

Visited home, jury duty, job search, heat wave that totally zaps my energy to do anything.

Things I've learned this week
Unemployment gives me time to think. Too much time, actually, about every 4th day I get a little crazy, and Bella-cat and I start having conversations. But I’m trying to structure my limited free time as best I can, so here’s the first installment of: WHAT I’M LEARNIN’ ABOUT LIFE! Spectral music: Interesting stuff. I can’t say I understand it, and I don’t...

Iced Coffee? No Sweat - New York Times →
Holy crap, it is good! I just wish I could post wiggle pictures… redflyer: I made myself cold-brewed iced coffee today using the New York Times’ recipe and it was pretty great. Hooray coffee! Wiggle Picture of the process forthcoming.
