Beanie level: Errand boy

    My weather app has had more suspense and twists lately than a kdrama.
    30 degrees hotter in Seattle for most of the day than where I live in the suburbs of Los Angeles.
    About 10 degrees hotter than near Tucson Arizona where someone I know lives.
    That’s just WRONG!

      seriously!!! we’re like rain dwellers that complain it doesn’t get hot in summer until august… i think we’ll have to stop complaining… only about 30% of the households in seattle have A/C, cuz we usually get one week of over 85-90° each summer.

      kinda weird not seeing people out walking their dogs or kids on bikes/trikes… (i think there are still more dogs than kids in seattle).

    I feel so bad for you guys. I lived in Minneapolis where a/c is regarded as unnecessary and those 90+ days were truly hell. I hope you cool off soon and send the heat . . . anywhere but here.

      oh, i don’t envy you midwesterners — my sister lived in chicago and mequon areas, talk about severe summer heat/humidity and subzero snowfalls in winter… it was so cold one thanksgiving season that we couldn’t go into downtown chicago to go shopping… 0° plus -11° windchill factor.

        😁 I grew up in Chicago. One Christmas was so cold that when we put our groceries in the car trunk, by the time we got home the cells of the lettuce had literally exploded into green mush. Then again, another Christmas was so beautiful that people were sailing on the Lake. Weather!

    My library’s has two chillers but only one is currently functional. Yesterday was difficult because the building was hot and humid. Beanies, stay cool and as hydrated as possible!

      and today it felt “refreshing” to go outside in the afternoon to feel 84°F with a breeze! tonight, we got even more relief!!! a wonderful onshore wind that cooled everything west of the cascade mountain range down — it’s a lovely 63°F right now at 2 am… i had every window and door open to blow out the residual heat!

          Argh, I think I was wrong – apologies!🙏 It seems to just register my rating automatically. Clicking on the arrow simply shrinks my rating to the side…

      i think i found the drama(s) — called Kyojo & Kyojo 2, but his DOO isn’t sexy like in this photo, dangit. it’s one of those Jdrama police type dramas (tho both parts have only 2 eps that are about 1.5 hours long – strange) that is too neatly packaged and the “genius” is too spot on every time, it’s rather boring…

      but i’ll watch the part 2 ones, cuz… well, it’s KIMUTAKU… not tall that he is. but oh so pretty — i swear, he’s done botox or collagen to his face — NOT COMPLAINING, but… i wish he’d let himself grow older gracefully……

      It’s supposed to protect your finger from being pricked by the needle.

        Also they help you push the needle through the fabric without having it (the thread end of the needle) shred your pushing fingertip.

          but it really speaks to her “flipping the bird” with all her fingers…..

      Also, you normally wear just one thimble, on the finger you’re doing the pushing with (for me, middle finger of my right hand). No one would ever wear thimbles on every finger but this is just how inept she is at embroidery that she needs to protect each fingertip from possible self-inflicted danger.

        Thank you so much for the context. Even though I like embroidery and eid it in school, I had no idea about sewing thimbles

          Our thimbles are about 98% ugly metal ones 😆 I understand the Korean thimbles were/are made of four layers of ramie or even paper, covered by the embroidered decorative covers. Sometimes they can have a leather layer to make them even harder to pierce.

is anyone following the news about the novel Pachinko being produced by AppleTV for a miniseries, starring Lee Min Ho? hopefully he\’ll also portray his son Noa, later in the story?

    Yessssssssss 🙂
    But then again, I wouldn’t celebrate too, too early… There’s still the process of certifying the votes by the electoral college before it’s official in the courts, and that won’t take place until around December, so there’s still a few more weeks that people will need to deal with Trump before he’s made to shut up and cannot deny it any longer (although, watching the courts of each of the states dismiss his ‘election fraud’ lawsuits and not even see it as a thing to dig into is quite funny and entertaining)

waiting to see if America erupts into civil chaos/anarchy by the end of election day… it\’s like a very bad makjang political drama – actually it\’s worse because we\’re not making this stuff up.
