stop hover-peeing

Do you even Neko Atsume?  This is a game a coworker told me about, and I call it the cat hoarding game.  You attract cats to your yard with food and toys, and they bring you fish, which you can use to buy more food and toys.  They never poop, and if you don't feed them it doesn't kill them, they just don't come to your yard.  It's like a giga-pet without the stress!  Highly recommend.

UMMM GUESS WHO WENT TO CHURCH WITH BILL CLINTON ON SUNDAY?  It was me.  Grant's choir was performing at the Abyssinian Baptist Church in Harlem, and who should walk in and basically commandeer the entire program but Bill Clinton and Charlie Rangel, large as life and twice as natural.  He gave a stump speech for Hillary, which was good but went on and on, and it seemed like the pastor was getting a little miffed about it.  Like, we understand your position Mr. Clinton, but we've got a sermon about the Israelites to deal with here.  But it all worked out and the sermon was great and the music was great and I hope those kids understand what an incredible experience they had.  I cried a ton, which surprised nobody.  MUSIC!

on cheetos

I think we can all agree that Flamin' Hot Cheetos are a treat for a specific type of person.  Like, when Britney Spears was married to Kevin Federline and was being photographed going shoeless into gas station bathrooms?  That kind of person.  And there's a snotty part of me that thinks I'm a better kind of person than the Flamin' Hot Cheetos kind of person.  They seem like a snack from a misanthropic cartoon.

So we were driving home from practice a while ago, mocking Flamin' Hot Cheetos, as one does, and one of my teammates, with whom I am like-minded on societal issues, put in a plug for Cheddar JalapeƱo Cheetos.  WELL.  Roller battle does sometimes give me a hankering for junk food, so I stopped at the store and bought a bag.  They are tiny bags, by the way.  Why are there not "family-size" bags of Cheetos?  Anyway, they were delicious and whatever addictive chemical they contain prevents me from feeling any regret that I tried them.  So that's my recommendation, sorry if I ruin your life.
