After almost a month, repeated emails, chats, and phone calls to customer support, repeatedly being sent to the same link to upload a picture of my EBT card and being told "It will take seven days", an Amazon customer service person finally admitted that they're not yet able to verify Texas EBT cards on the discounted Prime program they announced almost two months ago. No suggestion of when they might be ready, or offer to, y'know, not assume that I'm trying to defraud them and give me the discounted price while they're getting their act together.

Okay... is anyone else seeing what I'm seeing/connecting the dots that I am here?

Item: Earlier this week, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, our nation's top law enforcement official, announced a plan to increase the scope of civil asset forfeiture by law enforcement, rolling back the restrictions on this practice put into place during the Obama administration.

Item: This Thursday, the New York Times published an interview with the current occupant of the Oval Office in which he expressed regret for appointing the aforementioned JeffBo, despite his having been one of said occupant's early adopters. He gave as the reason JeffBo's recusal from the investigation into the administration's ties with Russia.

Now, why am I seeing these two items as related?

The dots, let me connect them. )

Me at 18: These characters are having conversations like overwrought cyborgs in a room. Here is a complete list of everything on their shelves. Welcome to IKEA.

Me at 35: These characters are trading not-terribly-written dialogue IN THE VOID. Do not describe THE VOID. They are too terrified to move, lest they get the attention of THE VOID. Nothing actually happens. Nothing has happened for a long time. Also there are puns.

I braved the triple-digit heat to trudge out to Mango King for today's special (Thursday torta and fries - I got the beef fajita torta again) and a large pepino agua fresca. Totally worth it.

Getting ready for an afternoon out and the Welcome to Night Vale live show! Since I'm going to a show tonight I did a wrap with no volume, just a no-slip headband underneath. I'd been planning to wear a tunic and long skirt but it's super hot so to hell with it, gonna wear my CowCow skater dress. It's got a neat celestial print!

Shortcut knishes made with Pillsbury biscuit dough! The filling is frozen mashed potatoes and frozen spinach combined with butter, shredded cheese, and a bunch of seasonings - a little Krazy Mixed Up Salt, some chicken bullion, and a lot of Penzeys goodies - Sandwich Sprinkle, Air Dried Shallots, powdered rosemary, and dill. They turned out a bit too salty but very tasty. I shared some with my neighbor - apparently her cat who does not usually like human food was very interested. So that is lunch for me, a tasty hot nosh for Yvonne, a wee morsel for Precious, and I have plenty of leftovers.

Happy synchronicity!

I had been thinking that I'd like to get a light green sari scarf and a few days later another wrapper I know online made a destash post - including a light green sari! Perfect timing, I got a good deal on something I wanted and she got a few bucks. I got it and it was just perfect, here it is with one of my favorite headbands.
