What shall I tell you about today? There's not much to say. I did have a semi-lengthy conversation with Scott this morning about how difficult I would be to replace. That was nice.

The majority of my evening last night was spent on finishing up and cleaning up some online stuff: first, finishing the captioning of all the photos from last weekend's trip to Vancouver, B.C.; second, finishing up the draft of the Spring Social Review that I posted live this morning. Nothing especially earth-shattering there, really, and honestly I always assume only Shobhit and I care about anything about the Social Review at all. Although sometimes Laney does ask about it. She'll probably continue to rank at #2 for a long time, I expect.

I'd call her the New Barbara, but honestly there is no replacing Barbara -- for a multitude of reasons, but not least of which is that no one else even has the potential to rack of the Social Review points that she consistently did over the years -- so much so that she often beat Shobhit for the #1 spot, even when he still lived at home! Now, Shobhit's point numbers are pretty reliably in the thirties or forties; Laney pretty reliably stays somewhere in the teens. Even hanging out with someone on 15 different days over the span of three months is a lot by probably most anyone's standards.

Besides that, we finally ate the bag of salad with mango dressing that Shobhit bought a while ago from Trader Joe's, and mixed in the garlic almonds we bought at the Granville Island Public Market in Vancouver, and had that for dinner. Shobhit predictably made himself something more later, and I declined to have any of that. We ate the salad while watching Last Week Tonight with John Oliver and then we watched Veep. It was a very funny episode of Veep, except for the mystifying decision to have characters use the word "tranny" as a punch line no less than three times. What the fuck is that shit? It's 2017 and I don't give a shit if we have a brazenly racist and homophobic moron as president, those people absolutely should know better.

After finishing up my Social Review draft, I came back to the living room and Shobhit and I finished the crossword in possibly record time. I knew a surprising lot of the answers very quickly. I'm getting better at it. I sure wish it actually meant it was improving my memory function, but apparently that's a myth.
