A leap: All dress-wearers are filled with joy when we discover that a dress has pockets. Y/N? Tell me I’m not alone in my pockety love here.
Nitpicking: isn’t a “bikini body” technically ANY body with a bikini on it? Why does “bikini” now = a specific shape/size, & not swimwear?

Now I invoke my powers to make eShakti do my bidding by casually suggesting POCKETS. POCKETS on DRESSES. YOU SHOULD MAKE POCKETED DRESSES!
eShakti update: they replaced the dress I’d received that had the glaring fit issue, and fast. All is well. Thanks, eShakti folks!

What’s up with Avenue.com right now - seems like there’s very little on the site. And didn’t they used to have an activewear section?
Our CSA pickup today included fresh corn, some of which I immediately boiled when we got home so Mr 52stations could experience it. Amazing.
I went and swam laps w/ my eager suitor, LA Fitness, for 40 minutes today, and then tried out the not-very-hot spa. Lovely. Pain tomorrow.
But fun, nonetheless. Mad props to my husband for dealing with my frenzied typing, constant pausing of the DVR, and impatient shushing.

Got a nice deal on the startup/monthly fee and 3 days to ask for a refund. So LA Fitness has 72 hours to impress me, starting tomorrow.
Checking out health club candidate #1: LA Fitness in Saugus. Minor gym anxiety. Trying not to count fat people, though it’s reassuring.
When I am a millionaire, I am building the most beautiful gym on earth and making diet/body-hating talk grounds for ejection. Just saying.

Local Fats clothing swap tomorrow. I should probably assemble some swappable clothes, but I spent too long in the sun today and am tiredddd.
Saw Harry Potter, finally. It was satisfactory.
Every year the husband and I look at one another and ask, “Why haven’t we gone to Comic-Con? Next year!” And then we forget again. Sigh.
Researching social media for work purposes is surprisingly fun and gratifying. I keep feeling like it’s not boring enough to be actual work.
