High-res Saw these sandals for sale today.  They were “30% off” (Dubai slang for “only slightly more than regular US price”) and still ≈ $350!  I told the guy “I can’t afford [$350] sandals!  Simon schooled me… “You don’t say ‘I can’t afford them’; you say “I’m not paying that - for sandals!”   
They’re adorable so I’m putting them here, for it looks like they’re sold out everywhere online (because everywhere online sold them at a reasonable price point?).

I don’t absorb the lyrics of a song until about the 200th time I’ve heard it*, so I’m not entirely sure what this song means yet, but I love it.  It’s happy and made me smile yesterday while I was running (and running, and running, and oh god more running).

*A few years ago I felt like I suddenly absorbed and processed the lyrics of every Eminem song I had been listening to - all at once.  That was quite the shock!  I can’t seem to quiet my inner dialog enough to take in lyrics in music.  Simon is incredible - he can listen to an album once and understand that the songs tell a story.  Advice is welcome, I want to be able to do music good and such and such as I think it would improve my brain and also my life… or is the album name my answer?

High-res Ramadan hours are the best.  Wake up at the same time, go to the gym for an hour, then browse Reddit while drinking a homemade latte behind closed doors.
Laugh.

2 things I did this week that got me (warranted) dirty looks

1) Went to a neighborhood tennis/basketball court to try out my new skates… with my DOG in tow.  Right after I started rolling around, 4 actual tennis players came to play a game of doubles.  Guy looks at me, I smile, he looks at dog, dirty look.

2) My mom called while I was waiting in line to get my cell phone plan changed.  I told her I’d hang up when it was my turn, but I was too distracted to notice when my turn came up.  Guy behind me says “IT’S YOU!”, I turn and apologize, dirty look.
