I think this year’s Memorial Day Weekend weather truly could be described as “comically bad.” It was in the 90s last weekend and it’ll be half that and raining tomorrow. Ah well, it’s not as if we don’t need the rain.
Let’s just say this episode’s title is extremely on the money (lol).
I had cactus needles and rose thorns embed in my hands this week, and I made an incredibly half-assed video for ALA Annual a couple hours ago on the day it was due. Let me know if you want to see it. There’s good info in it (about protecting your privacy while you’re doing online advocacy), but damn, I phoned that one in. I don’t even remember submitting the proposal for it last year, so there you have it, I guess?
