and it all started with a big bang

Legos, Big Bang Theory, Batman. Can it really get better than this?

Well, yes. Yes it can.

Create your own personal mini-fig and invite yourself to the room where it happens.

…we are made of particles that have existed since the moment the universe began. I like to think those atoms traveled fourteen billion years through time and space to create us, so that we could be together… – The Matrimonial Momentum – The Big Bang Theory

I deserve this today, today I deserve it. – Batman – Lego Batman

slug bugs

Who doesn’t play slug bug…or punch buggy? Of course with a circus like mine, through the years, it had all the possibility of ruthlessness. Thank goodness for the official rules. Yes, The Official Rules of Slug Bug is a real, actual thing and thank you Baby Jesus for those rules because without them chaos, confusion, turmoil, hostility will reign freely.

Why does this feel like it’s happening anyway?

Did you notice that silver Slug Bug convertible, Mom?

No, we don’t follow the official rules so much these days because sometimes in the midst of real life nihilism, one must rebel.

That blue Slug Bug is so shiny, isn’t it son? Almost as nice as that black one I see in my rear view mirror?

Ah, geez Mom!

Yeah, that’s how we roll, my favorite son and I because sometimes you have to revolt against the status quo. Meanwhile, what do you think about that red and white, old school Slug Bug?

a slow day

When you have no appointments, no particular thing to do or place to be there is sooo much that can be done…so much to be accomplished. So you check that to-do list that is is just too much…but today, at least, it can wait for another day…another day. Today is a slow day and, for once, you are going to to take the time to do slow day kind of things:

Like curling your hair and putting on makeup.

Then take a picture because you know this won’t last. But now it will because you took a picture which will end up being your social media profile pic because it’s a slow day and you have time for that…and because you curled your hair and put on makeup.

A bit self indulgent, I know.

Perhaps I should consider others on a slow day.

Don’t judge. Son is at school. Darling husband is at work. Darling daughters are on their own in the world doing on-your-own-in-the-world grown-up kind of things. Don’t tell me that you weren’t asking the same question about Siri. Well now you know. You’re welcome.

Oh, and on this slow day I begin a little light reading.

And discover what was likely Lin Manuel Miranda’s epiphany while enjoying a little poolside vacation light reading…832 pages of light reading, y’all. On a slow day seems like the thing to do, to begin.
