No one is talking about it because everyone is watching it: Orange is the New Black. Has it really been 5 years, already??? The last season made me cry, almost every episode! The emotional reactions from this show are intense, it is fun and it is funny, it is sad and it is infuriating. I have only watched the first episode so far (NO SPOILERS!) and I really appreciate that Sophia shows her previously unrecognized medical expertise. It reminds us that these women were all members of society, many carrying jobs or going to school, making change in the world. Some of them, however, are more influential in prison than they were on the other side (Piper).
When it is hot outside, the single most refreshing thing for me (more than lemonade!) is a chocolate-covered frozen banana. They are usually more chocolatey and fresh if I dip them myself, and the crunchy toppings are a nice touch.
I enjoyed this slideshow of camp style. I often find myself in the true-American denim suit (left) but I identify with the Ranger Dad clothes on a spiritual level.
This weekend I tried cucumber dill hummus and my mind was blown. It was so cool and refreshing, and made the best beachside picnic snack! My sister had bought it at the local farmer’s market, but I am thinking of making this recipe for myself.
