I fed an apple to some horsies yesterday! Yaaaayyy!

Today, meanwhile, is way too hot. It’s getting to that part of the Summer I don’t like. The Summery part.

Heat, like a blanket, covers the city
and like a pillow smothers without pity.

Summer is like what you have on your bed, I’m saying basically.

In other news, there’s now a new African country. This, just a few years after I decided to memorize the continent as it was. How the chunks am I supposed to remember where South Sudan is?

I’m pretty sure that those two things are the only interesting things that have happened since the last time I had anything to say. Let’s see… We’re currently in the middle of new seasons of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Louie, so I am all about watching those.
