Day 1 selection: Maya Mtn, Belize. #chocolatelyfe

This is the face of someone who has experienced a day in which terrible news is received (my dad fainted at a party at like 1am, fell face-first on a concrete floor, has a broken jaw, ruptured ear drum & 3 teeth knocked out. He is home now but has a long recovery ahead.) but also excellent news is created (I accepted my dream job: HR Mgr for a really fantastic artisanal chocolate factory a few minutes from home). I am…tired. So worried for my dad, so glad my siblings and stepmom and mom and friends are able to be there for my dad until I can get up there. So excited for the work I’m going to do—I’ll be a real employee (as opposed to the consulting projects/contract work I’ve done) for the first time in 5 years, and I’m so looking forward to being part of this particular team.

But yeah, exhausting day. Immediately following this photo, I drank half a bottle of rosé because GODDAMN today I earned it. #salfie

If you haven’t seen 112 Weddings on HBO, you have a little time left. If it’s showing at a film festival near you, do that instead. Weddings are one thing but marriage is infinitely more interesting, and this is such a lovely film about just that. (Plus my dear childhood friends are in it, and you will see my stepmom! Life is funny and weird.) #bestlife (at Castro Theatre)

Reflecto-#salfie makes me look like I’m of two minds about something and I am in the best of ways but I am decided on one thing at least: this remains one of my favorite swimsuits for lounging and floating and baking in the sun. #allbodiesaregoodbodies #gotabod? #showitoff #ifyouwantto #itsuptoyou #youdoyou #etcetc

YOU GUYS I DID IT I rode my bike on the street, all the way down Market to the Ferry Building to meet @bbphotogirl. And then back. While wearing a dress. (I tucked the hem into the bottoms of my chub-rub shorts, probably flashed every single person along the way. And I didn’t get hit by a car (though I worried more about getting squished between MUNI busses) and only had to get on the sidewalk this once to wait for a red light to change at an intersection with no bike box/streetcar in the way. IM SO PROUD OF MYSELF. #bikepretty #bikeladies #conqueringfears (at Embarcadero Station)

Another satisfied @seattlejunklove customer! Sarah shipped this lovely little cast metal swimmer to me here in Sam Fram and I’m just terribly thrilled. #swimalltheswimmings

GOOD NEWS: someone else in my building has a more ridiculous bike than mine, and it’s the Liberty of London for Target bike so I’m dying of envy. ALSO GOOD: I managed to use the fancy bike-fixing station to put air in my bike tires! Ready to try street riding in SF. LESS GOOD NEWS: my cruiser is so goddamned heavy I can’t lift it back up on the vertical racks in the bike room. Time to find something lighter! (DUH OF COURSE I have been ogling @publicbikes but I need to test ride and find a gently used one.)

One of two new tiny additions to the window ledge garden: a pitcher plant & (not pictured) a flytrap. My succulents have had wee beasties buzzing around them—hopefully these two will keep them at bay. #carnivorousplants #growgreenthings
