Restaurant rut

Can it be considered being in a restaurant rut when you go to the same restaurant two times in a row?

I didn’t choose the restaurant.
W’s mother and sister did.
Both times.
They probably like it more than I do.

I’m not taking responsibility for this rut.

Across the stars

Just heard one of our nieces play this at a concert.

She played it well too.
Makes a Star Wars loving aunt happy.

I sometimes wish that all those pompous, idiot men who are against abortion got to try being pregnant. Either very much against their will or with serious health risks involved.
I bet the good laws of the lucky countries would stay as they are and the bad laws that prevail in most of the world would go away in a flash.

I have a facebook friend who is one of those jerks. Unfortunately he’s also a distant cousin that I can’t unfriend because his mum will get upset.
I like his mum.

I met one of W’s cousins today.

Less than two minutes into the conversation she said something astonishingly stupid. It wasn’t unexpected. She usually does. Sometimes it has the whole family biting out tongues, trying no to laugh out loud. Sometimes it’s just annoying, like she can’t be bothered to use her brain.

She has a college degree. I have absolutely no idea how she managed that.
