I’m a slacker.
It’s been several days and I just let 29tolife just go…
But in my defense, an odd, powerful, quick storm called “derecho” basically shat all over the D.C., Maryland, Virginia area leaving more than 1 million people without electricity (that includes air conditioning in 100 degree weather) for several days.
For me, it was three days. Others are still trying to survive and I feel horrible for them. It’s been rough.
The storm made trees look like spilled crayons all over various neighborhoods. It was insane.
Fortunately, I was able to seek shelter with one of my good friends and her darling son, I ate good food and even checked out a farmers market and bought 20 sticks of incense for $1 and a unique gift for the fabulous L.A. cousin who showed me such a good time a few weeks ago. Way to make lemonade, eh?
So, while I was more concerned with conserving my phone battery and trying not to melt or spontaneously combust from the sweltering heat, I did not get to write any insightful or wonderful blogs.
Even if I tried, it would say.
“I’m hot. That is all I have the energy to say. Thank you.”
I would like to announce that I am starting to cross items off my summer bucket list, but hanging out with one of my friends who made a list too, I decided to add more. I can cross off outdoor concert! Whoo hoo.
Tubing down a river
Drive in theater (I found one! They have an awesome menu too.)
Obstacle course race?
This was not on my bucket list, but I started writing crazy haiku as a stress reliever and it was actually darn funny. You can check these ramblings on a sister blog, Ratchethaiku.
So, I promise to bring it in upcoming days. I’ve got more bff drama (the same damn one, half-assed apologies and dramatic email exchanges), and I’m trying to figure out if there’s any spark between me and my older gent and whether or not he’s going to get a first class ticket to Friendville.
Stay tuned my friends.
