    I bought a truck! 2007 F-150 Supercab with about 106k miles on it. I’ve already got a list of things I’d like to replace/upgrade, but I need to sell my old 4Runner and/or travel trailer before I can do that.

    I love that route! Such a pretty one. I did it from Seattle to LA several years ago.

    I worked the primary election on Tuesday. It was a long, long 14-hour day, but it was neat and I’ll do it again. I was definitely the youngest worker there (33). I had both my oldest (96) and youngest (19) voters come in one right after the other. One lady got mad at me for saying her party affiliation out loud (we’re required to do this). Another was angry that I wouldn’t look at her ID (no voter ID law here). All in all, folks were pleasant and I liked my coworkers.

    Highly encourage folks to work an election, even just once, to see how the process really works.

    I’ve been on this since day one, and it’s a blast. I’ve never read Dracula, but I did watch the original movie a few times as a kid.

    Dogs are capable of loving their people. That doesn’t mean all of them love their people. In fact, I’d argue that one of mine does not really give a hoot about me, haha.

    That was hard to read. :/ I’m glad they were able to shut it down, but it sounds like it wasn’t even the police who got to them.

    I’m glad they were able to shut it down, but it sounds like it wasn’t even the police who got to them.

    One twitter user pointed out that the one who exposed this cult was Mor Pla, a celebrity volunteer who has helped uncover suspicious religious cases, rather than local authorities.

    My friend made some amazing vegan chili for the bike camping trip over the weekend. I cooked veggie dogs in with it, and the result was absolutely incredible! I'm going to have to get the recipe from her, because the chili was the perfect combo of sweet and spicy.

    The truth is the bike camping trip was both good and bad. Good because I got to test out my cold weather equipment (which worked wonderfully). Bad because I really don't enjoy wet and cold as a combo. One or the other is usually fun, but... yeah. It was a time.

    My garden is really starting to take off! The sweet peas are blooming, the carrots will be ready to harvest in a few weeks, and the one remaining broccoli plant is absolutely rockin' it. I do need to figure out support for the tomatoes, though. I planted them a little too close together to use the supports I currently have.

    I also went out shopping at the local secondhand shop for a dress to wear to a wedding next weekend, and I walked out with four. Each one fits pretty much perfectly, and I'm stoked to have a few more on hand. I don't wear dresses often, but it's so hard to find ones I like. Shoutout to my friend who went with me and picked out three of them. They know my style. :)

    I've absolutely loved every one of his movies. He's quickly become my favorite director, which I don't think I had before. He has such a distinct style, and I think Wes Anderson—who somebody else in this topic mentioned, hah—might be the only director who outdoes him in that regard (at least for me).

    I think I'll be well enough to do it! Most of the group I was going with is dropping out due to weather (supposed to rain)... so we'll see whether or not I actually end up going.

    Hah! I've fractured my pelvis (twice), so this pales in comparison to that. Thank you for the kind words. :)

    The Witch and The Lighthouse are both fantastic, single-location movies set in the past. I mention these movies a lot because I love how immersive they are. The former doesn’t use any artificial light at all and is about as historically accurate as it gets for colonial America.

    I managed to injure my hip flexor while I was training dogs on Tuesday. Not great considering I’m leading a bike ride tonight and a bike campout on Saturday. I think it’ll be healed enough to do both, but boy howdy what a painful injury! And I don’t even think it was terribly severe. Definitely taking it easy on both rides as not to aggravate it further.
