PSA: GO TO A BASEBALL GAME THIS WEEKEND

Though we are, of course, monumentally excited for another series with the Seahawks, late September/early October also means late-season baseball, which is truly one of life’s greatest joys—especially when your Seattle Mariners are refusing to lose most nights and just barely dangling outside of the wildcard.

Whether we go to the playoffs or not—and we might! There are circumstances under which it could happen!—this weekend’s home games should really be totally packed. In part because it’s good for the team and also in part because baseball is fucking. Fun.

There are mad deals going on, which means you can get to the game for a song. You can save all your money to buy wildly expensive beer or you can just keep it together and eat a hot dog and ice cream out of a commemorative helmet like God and Normal Rockwell intended it. 

These are the last days of regular baseball season. Go to a game. 

Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.

January Book Photo Challenge: day twenty-two | paperback? hardback? ebook?

Paperbacks are my favorite, but since I’m so impatient I often end up buying books when they are still only in hardback format. I prefer these beauties without the dust covers. Their covers are always pretty, but look at those bare spines!
