Pinned toot

I guess I should do one of those .

I'm a writer and poet. My blog is 15 years old. I'm a web designer and copyediter. I did a TEDx talk about the power of personal narrative. I've run a gratitude group for 8 years. I have 4 cats, but I only like them 2 at a time, because cats are terrible. I'll never forget that I rubbed a semi-famous person's belly instead of shaking their hand. I apparently love dying of embarrassment forever.

Two of my Tweetdeck columns aligned in the most delightful way just now:

My June 2019 Mixtape is out: elanmorgan.com/blog/elan-june-. June’s mixtape is 1 hour and 29 minutes long and has 24 hip-hop, rap, r&b/soul, rock, indie rock, alternative, pop, indie pop, and singer/songwriter songs from 6 different decades.

This is my chubster, Augie. He thinks we should stay here aaaaalllll day.

My second piece is something I wrote for @palinode for Valentine's Day, but I was too nervous about it and so sat on it until today. He likes it :)

Ignore the cat hair-covered socks, because look what arrived in the morning mail today: a pair of new-to-me Pour La Victoire uber-sparkly shoes via ThredUp.

I love a good deal on gorgeous shoes, and getting $214USD Pour La Victoire shoes worn what appears to be once inside maybe for $23.10 makes me very happy first thing on Monday.

Also, yes, I modelled these shoes against my bedroom wall because they were delivered to me in bed. I'm living well.

I took out my nose stud yesterday and have had a naked nose for the first time since 1996. I didn't want to look like a 90s throwback who stopped listening to music after Pearl Jam. But now I'm questioning my own ageism. And I'm looking up new jewelry on Google.

I'm really good at finding stuff to avoid housework.

I quit Facebook, I'm dropping social media promotion clients, and I'm taking naps when I'm tired, no matter the time of day. The noise of the last decade has exhausted me and worn down my boundaries and ability to prioritize my time, my work, and my ideas.

I feel like I'm standing up at an AA meeting.
