And so yesterday I invoked the 5:00 Rule*, and markgritter made guacamole today, and I think I win at holiday decadence, but just in case that's not enough, there will be grilled sockeye salmon, and I will finish this book I'm reading, and I will play with the doglet's ears, and that's what, really.
It's good timing for a lazy, lazy holiday: the doglet hates the 4th due to feeling under attack, so having quiet, soothing monkeys around is just as well for her. Also the rest of July is looking...a bit like we have a thing or two to do, let's say.
But more on that later. For now I am catching up on correspondence and renewing my zoo membership and other stuff that is quite satisfying from the inside and not the least bit of interest externally. So yay.
*The 5:00 Rule, for those of you who need a refresher course: if you are a morning shower person, and you manage, with this and that, to put off your shower until after 5:00 p.m. and don't have other stuff to do, you win! You are not required to put actual clothes on but can instead put clean pajamas on after your shower and luxuriate in your decadence.
