HODGEPODGE love it and not because it gives me an idea of what to fix my peeling wallpaper with
I love the poop poster. And am totally going to check out the Bevam.
People who don't pick up after their dog are the true villains of our time.
My answers to your questions
1. Who are you? No one of consequence. Not joking, I am boring and a curmudgeon (see answer to #3 below)
2. One awesome thing you’re reading / watching / listening to? https://www.ioann.xyz/
The first thought that comes to mind after reading this last question? Leave me alone. Enjoyed your newsletter.
I say yes, carpet bomb them with leaflets, give them now quarter on every corner of the block. No, do not tell your wife that I agree with you.
Second, thank you for the kind mention of my stuff (with my overdone tag line, I must cut it down to "hi"), I remain in full "whoa" mode with all that you share. Love that watercolor art from Anna-Laura Sullivan.
Third, I'm sorry you have a cold, it's time for a... wait for it... a hodgepodge of vegetables, chicken and broth, followed by more of it.
"Can you get a flu shot while already sick with a cold? Asking for a friend…actually asking for myself."
Generally speaking you should be two weeks w/o symptoms before getting new innoculations but when you sign up for the shots the pharmacy will ask you questions like that and then choose to approve a shot or not.
specific things i love include:
-- a newsletter that’s hard to explain, but easy to love
-- WHATEVER FLOATS UR SUBMARINE
-- the word hodgepodge is incredible (the word hodgepodge IS incredible)
-- a shaky soup
-- have you been farting more lately? (THANKS FOR NOT LEAVING US HANGING)
-- the investigation is still ongoing
-- a wiggle sprint
also, to answer your questions:
1) i am myq kaplan. comedian. your friend. fellow substacker. guy who likes commenting and lists.
2) one thing i just watched was WEIRD AL AND EMO PHILIPS AT CARNEGIE HALL, but if you mean like something that YOU could also watch... THE GOOD FIGHT! also just started the show REBOOT and it's cool!
3) how about calling something "the hodgepodge lodge"?
PS THANKS FOR SHARING THAT ART! ALL OF IT!
1- I am Rachael! I am a Mom of two (one's a teenager and one's a kindergartner and yes I do believe that classifies me as some kind of crazy). I have an obsessive love for the Barenaked Ladies and even Steven Page although for a couple years after he left the band we Did Not Speak Of Him. I hike, I camp, I read like a huge nerd, I live for concerts.
2- I am currently reading The Haunting Of Hill House which... why have I never read this before?
3- It came to mind that it was silly of me to introduce myself again but hey, I'm running out of ways to work BNL into my comments.
The texts are great. Gave you a shoutout yesterday https://waywardyogini.substack.com/p/happy-hallows-eve Have a great weekend.
Yes yes yes to the poop poster. But not in your yard, Lauren is right about that. In fact, you in may want to wear a disguise when you put them up or you risk finding hundreds of poops in your garden.
This was so fun to read!
