    I haven’t been to the Renaissance Festival out here in years. For whatever reason whenever I go it turns into a washout, though it makes the acrobatics all the more entertaining. I also have always had a hunch that the entire enterprise serves as a not so stealthy work program for the local BDSM community (and no judgment if it does!) but that may just be my overactive imagination.

    As for us we were supposed to leave for our annual beach trip tomorrow but my son picked up covid and is in pretty rough shape. As always his positive attitude is downright amazing but now we’re struggling with what to do. It is a major bummer.Report

    nothing.

    it’s going to be hot enough and humid enough to be approaching the point where “wet bulb” temperature is not compatible with life outside. I mowed the lawn yesterday and I’m glad I did it now.

    Also I am now broke – wrote the biggest personal check of my life to pay for the roof and I’m facing a similarly eyewatering cost (the rest of my savings, probably, and maybe also a small loan from my mom) to repair some damage that was caused by an apparently wrongly-done installation of replacement windows, and residing the house.

    I would love to go somewhere and do something but it’s too hot and I”m too broke so I might just lie on the floor and complain.Report

    I’ve been keeping this to myself for way too long: Ella Fitzgerald is hugely overrated. Honestly, “overrated” is pulling punches. I don’t like her at all. I find her voice somehow both dull and grating at the same time. The fact that so many people put her on the same level as Nina Simone or Billie Holiday is utterly mystifying to me.Report

    I started cutting wood in earnest this weekend for one of the Adirondack chairs I promised a friend I’d build him for a wedding present. I decided to use white oak instead of the usual pine as a treat for both myself and him. I’m also using a new plan to see how it turns out. The classic Adirondack design is incredibly comfortable despite not being padded at all, so the new design has a high hurdle to overcome.Report

    The Ren Faire was overcast and ~60 degrees and relatively uncrowded. WHICH WAS WONDERFUL.

    The main thing: holy cow, everything was expensive. Like, above and beyond “I’m going to go drop a couple of bills at the ren faire” expensive. Frozen Bananas, for example, were $6.50.

    THAT IS NOT A TYPOReport
