Another disgrace I have to tell you about
i stole this line from a donald trump email what do we think
I can’t think of anything to write today, so I’m gonna write with this email subject in mind and in the POV of Donald:
~ a list of potential disgraces that this could possibly be about ~
there are no clean towels in the Mar-a-Lago golf course men’s bathroom
there are no bathrooms at the Mar-a-Lago golf course
one of my feet is flatter than the other
Coraline is too scary of a movie
I can’t see without my glasses
when I look at myself for too long in the mirror, I see how I die, and it’s super embarrassing
the other day, I put a vacuum hose up to my mouth, and I couldn’t pull it off for 45 minutes
I tell people that I lost my sense of taste from covid, but I’ve actually never been able to taste anything ever in my life
I’ve never seen The Godfather
black pepper is too spicy, and someone needs to do something about it
I couldn’t get a ticket to the Eras Tour
LEGO sets are impossible to finish
I can’t stop blinking in photos
I ate so many chocolate bars the other day and still didn’t get a golden ticket
someone is ghostwriting this list because I don’t know how to read
I sat on a cactus and didn’t feel a thing
banana peels are hazards and must be stopped
I watched the Barbie movie and didn’t get it
I dressed up as Pennywise for Halloween and no one knew I was in costume
I don’t like ABBA
So, yeah, if you couldn’t tell, I did not know what to write about today! My dad and brother are in town, and so I’ve been doing the New York tourist thing; this takes up a lot of energy and creativity because you need to make the New York tourist thing something unique, even though you’re going to Central Park or the Natural History Museum or the High Line. Speaking of the High Line, it is a lot longer than I thought. That was a walk.
Other than that, I’ve been in a Wordle group chat with my aunt and uncle, and at first I was winning, but now I am LOSING. That is the disgrace I have to tell you about. The disgrace is me losing at Wordle.
I watched Goodfellas today, which is a true story about a buncha guys bein’ wiseguys. I gave it 4.5 out of 5 stars. I never give anything amazing five stars if it is longer than two hours. Movies do not need to be that long. Someone relay that message to Martin Scorcese. The other day, we went to the Yankees vs. Red Sox game, and the Yankees lost in literally the first inning. Sort of humbling, actually. Other than that, my extended weekend with my family shall continue for another day and a half, and then the summer continues!
Have a wonderful week, girly girls. Make your own list of disgraces. Make your list of graces, like Grace Kelly, Grace from Grace and Frankie, Grace Jones, Grace Potter, Hail Mary full of Grace. And always remember to let your aunt and uncle win at Wordle (I’M KIDDING I’m not letting them I’m really off my game right now).
movie rec: Goodfellas (1990)
music rec: new Hozier album, so get your Irish blood flowing
book rec: I read Killers of the Flower Moon, and it was very easy and felt a little bit like a long Wikipedia page — but it was good; looking forward to the movie. I’m now reading The Vagabond by Colette!
