Today was a good day. Nothing all morning and then baseball game with Matt Stefan Hank Katherine Bryan katelyn dave ever Kristen and the ospreys lost like 14 to 5 but it was amusing and a lot about pee nuts and betting on children then we got pizza and went to thebadlander and I had I think my first margaritas and there was jazz but because it is missoula it was more like country folk jazz just 2 guys with a guitar and mandolin and now I’m home and v happy I like having friends and stuff it’s way better than not

Alan tagged me in this music thing. I haven’t really listened to much music lately, which is a weird thing to say/think, but here:

Hit shuffle on your iPod, phone, iTunes, etc. and write down the first 20 songs. Pass this on to 10 people.

a weird problem i never thought about before is that it’s so smoky here from wildfires that you can’t even see the mountains or sometimes the sun and the sun is red if you can see it and we were going to go on a hike today but that would be unhealthy. bleugh.

i like doing captions/translations. from someone’s submitted latvian translation of a crash course video…
