Today is lovely in general, aside from the fact that in spite of 8 FULL hours of sleep last night, I’m still worn out. It’s hard for me to go to bed early when it’s still light outside! I ended up dozing off on the couch with Stripey, while watching The Great British Bake-off.
Which… I love that show! I have just finished season 1 of the Great Irish Bake-off and it was great. I really liked the American version from a couple of years ago, and the British version is verrrry amusing and full of interesting historical tidbits and trivia. Anyone else watching?
School shooting here today. Distressing. “Only” one person was killed by the shooter before he killed himself. According to people who are keeping track, this is the 74th instance of gun violence in this country since the Sandy Hook elementary shooting. And good god, does that even count the random day-to-day violence, the murders and gang-related shootings across the country? I can say this much with certainty: Giving kids bulletproof blankets is not the answer.
