"I miss going to the gym" are this year's unlikely words coming out of my mouth, because I still haven't found a good 5k walking loop (I'm good for 3k, would prefer not to double it up and get bored of it twice as quick). The real struggle is wanting to go after dark and/or zone out on a treadmill instead of having to pay attention to my surroundings.
Obsessed with this Monirath hat that is designed to throw watery reflections on your face (https://www.instagram.com/p/CKKgqTfgVXg/ - picture of the artist modeling it)
Rediscovered The Organ ('00s all-girl post punk/new wave, with an organ obviously), and it's been a great choice for late evening music especially when it's windy and rainy.
(Nostalgia note: Can't quite put my finger on why, but they also evoke a strong feeling for me of standing in the dark at a show and the building smells like bricks and beer, and the opening band absolutely kills it.)
It's time for this week's #MastoSourcedPlaylist!
It's The One About Water!
Almost 4 hours of songs about Water, Oceans, Seas, Raindrops, Tears, and... other... fluids.
Shuffle up and Enjoy!
@erinbee tangentially related joke:
How many ears does a Canadian folk singer have?
Three. A left ear, a right ear, and the last of Barrett's private ears.
Time to try putting my phone into greyscale mode at night to see if it acts as a disincentive so I don't feel tempted or compelled to look at videos or Instagram. The only downside is that I actually really like it for things that are primarily text. It's got a feeling like watching an old newsreel about what people thought communication would be like in the ✨distant future, the year 2021✨
Thus sayeth Erin, who won't go into the woods without good coffee and is apparently the Niles Crane of roughing it.
