I got tickets to see our First Lady!

November 24 in Boston. Becoming: An Intimate Conversation with Michelle Obama. I don't know how intimate it can be, at TD Garden, lol. Even with my app open at 10am on the dot with a presale code, I had trouble getting tickets and had to go up several price ranges to get in. I'm very glad she's so popular, but I wish ticket scalpers weren't so successful in grabbing tickets instantly. Or maybe it was mostly individual fans like me? I hope so.

Oatmeal and chicken salad

My husband eats oatmeal at Starbucks and brings me the Nut Medley packs for my yogurt. I told him to try ordering oatmeal and ten nut packs, and then say hold the oatmeal... like a weak imitation of one of the best movie scenes ever.

Oh great, I have to ship a box to NC tomorrow,

to a rural address (related to eBay). It should arrive on Thursday but who knows. This is minor compared to the emergency situation people will be facing, of course, and I just hope they make it through this safely.

I'm walking to the Warren/Pressley rally right now.

Three miles for the exercise, through Harvard Yard, stopping at Au Bon Pain for an iced tea. I voted for Mike Capuano but he lost, and I'm looking ahead and not backwards. I don't have a way to post pictures but I'll be taking some.

Just thought I'd put this out there in case someone else on DU might be going.

What is the op-ed author doing right now, cowering in fear?

Orange Idiot is prowling the WH carrying a single rose to award some lucky contestant, before he grabs that person and defiles them with a drooling kiss of death smack on the lips. I hope all their vaccinations are up to date.

I'd like to think they're smart enough to just whistle along at their job and not panic. Be the hero Drumpf likes -- don't get captured.

I just bought Nike shoes for a total stranger.

Someone on an email list I follow started an Amazon wish list for two local teenage boys in need of school clothes. I was so happy to see all the Nike items on the list! I hope they get lots.

I'm in Alberta, in the smoke.

And feeling ignorant. Yesterday I was at home on the East Coast reading about the California fires, not knowing about the wildfires in BC that are sending smoke over the western part of Canada. We landed in Edmonton and wondered at the smog and haze. Now in Camrose, the day looks like dusk, and the air is acrid with smoke. If it's this bad so far away, I can only imagine how bad it is closer to the fires. A terrible emergency.

Does anyone watch telenovelas?

I started with the original El Clon (which I've watched in its entirety twice), then its remake. I've binge-watched many on Netflix, like Lo Que la Vida me Robo, Teresa, Velvet, etc. I try to avoid the drugs-and-crime ones but they dominate the genre.

I don't watch because they're great literature brought to the screen, I watch for the wide variety of conversational Spanish. I just finished watching Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas (based on a real person) and I was very glad for sub-titles because the slang and dialects were hard to follow.

Great post my granddaughter quoted on FB.

Go ahead and whip your titty out to feed your baby. Where I'm from, they pull titties out for beads.

(Yes, I'm from Louisiana)

I just saw the fake Indian vs real Indian bus.

I went to a dr appt in the building behind the bus in the photo, on Concord Ave. here in Cambridge. I'd seen that bus before, parked there, when it had a different message on it (can't remember what). We do get some loonies running for office...like the one who stole the Presidency...
