@tsarstepan,
it's a prize wheel - like wheel of fortune - where the prizes are gift certificates for meat

what I'm wearing right now isn't so interesting but I realized when I got back from walking the dog that I might have startled a few people

I had this hat on

@farmerman,
Kill your darlings!

It's so hard to edit out what you like. I hope you will.

Think about this one. Deadline tomorrow. $45. fee, but they send you feedback on your essays--& you write to prompts, which is a significant help to me.

Post one here.

Hold an editing contest with a prize contingent upon winning the other comp.

Marvel at how quickly your oeuvre gets the shoeuvre.

wearing: afore/mentioned over-sized, super thick navy houserobe with bears and snowflakes. The extraordinarily comfy navy adidas pants I arguably stole from my daughter-in-law, my damn favorite work dress I just never took off as I was throwing the other shite on top of cause cold. It is like the softest charcoal shirt dress evah! Too tired to put on socks, so swaddled feet in really tacky purple and neon green super soft blanket.
hearing: My impressively monotoned neighbor boring me to gunfire with her ultraboring voice.
eating: nada
drinking: Blue Moon
doing: avoiding bedtime
looking forward to: Christmas with my favorite daughter, wingwoman sister visit in a week.
feeling: on the pinnacle!!!
wanting: a solution to entertainment center issue.

@tsarstepan,
the Brooklyn Blackout looks interesting
looks like there are a couple of locations near Union Square - next time I'm in town - you're on!

look at this
