"Let's make a burrito!"

Keeping your head above water, making a way when you can
575 CPO
I've become so good at keeping my hair completely dry while I tread water, and it's a good thing I do. It's impossible to keep my beard out of the water, and when I come out, it looks completely normal with no purple tint at all. I can't imagine how much color would get zapped from my hair if I let the pool water get on it. Speaking of which, yesterday was such a good hair day. I'm sure people who follow me across many platforms are tired of hearing about it.


I took that third picture in the kitchen, when I went in for some photo updates. The vertical garden has more vines now, so I got to work with the Command hooks. Too bad we don't have a taller stepladder.


And I hung the chile wreath I picked up at the Pasco Farmers Market. Too bad the light isn't brighter, some of the colors are really intense.


A wider shot, for context.


I can't remember if I've mentioned that I joined MoviePass, but the card finally came, and I've already used it twice. Yesterday I saw Spider-Man Homecoming up in Marysville, and today I went to the Everett Mall for lunch in the food court and Mother! Please note the exclamation point is part of the movie's title and in no way reflects any enthusiasm I have for that movie. Because it's terrible. And that's saying a lot coming from me.

If you're not familiar, MoviePass costs $10 per month after the joining fee, which for me was also $10 because it was during a sale. Participating theaters are in the app, which you use to check in to the movie. You have to be within 100 yards of the theater, and you have 30 minutes after you check in to buy the ticket using the MoviePass debit card. You can see one 2D movie every day. So if you go to two movies a month, it's a great deal. I've always chosen to wait to see a lot of movies because I didn't want to spend the money, so getting to see as many as I want for a flat fee is perfect for me. I'm probably not their ideal customer, though.

Did you like "Spider-Man: Homecoming"?

I like it.

I loved it. Tons of fun and really great action.

A flat fee is really good. Over here a chain of theatres near me offers it but you’d have to see at least 3 movies a month to break even and that would be challenging so I’ve not bothered! It’s too expensive here unless you aren’t fussy about what you see (and I am!).

It's pretty wild that my first ticket each month with MoviePass makes the deal work. If you don't count the initial joining fee.
