Misfits and ballots
I don't usually bother with tzatziki because it has cucumber, which I don't much like, but I tried it and it's very garlicky, spread on pita bread, it's fine.
Once in a while an unordered item finds its way in, possibly a marketing idea, because it's something I've never ordered, like this. I expect the theory is that once tasted, I might order it.
And the bag of onions reminded me about onion bhajis, which I plan on as soon as I get chickpea flour. I'm thinking of them with the shrimp of last week, now in the freezer awaiting a good idea or two. The tzatziki can be a good dip for the bhajis.
My mail-in vote arrived, has been filled out, and mailed back.
Our state legislature, school boards and fire commissioners are all up. I was careful not to vote for a candidate for school board who, I think, has an agenda which has more to do with control than with education. I read about him. No. I suspect him of running as a fake Democrat, ready to "turn" Republican once elected. It's the new thing.
I was a good foot soldier in the push to establish universal state wide mail in, dropboxes, and ballot cure, the right to correct a mistake on the ballot. You have to do it in person in front of the County clerk. It saves losing your vote over a clerical slip. If there's a clerical snafu, they notify you and give you the chance to fix it.
Winnowing is done for now, the little table picked up last evening between showers, by a freecycler who sent a very appreciative message this morning. So my house is more orderly, and there are several happy people out there with my stuff, people whose partners are no doubt saying more stuff? You needed more stuff?
Another exciting day of rain today, and a text telling me my covid booster was cancelled yet again, so I booked yet again. I got a spot very locally, though, where I got the rsv from a very competent pharmacy tech. So I'm hoping to get this done with.
Happy day, everyone, the puzzle answer was
but you knew that.
