it’s appalling

but we’re not hopeless yet.

Appalling thing #1: The past couple weeks have shown that a bad Supreme Court and a bad political system is happening to a good country. If you’re as depressed about this as I am, I think you should watch this question time with the President that a lot of people are talking about. It’ll make you feel less doom and gloom. What else are you going to do for the next hour?

Appalling thing #2: Apparently a girl can’t buy non-‘sexy’ (and non-boring) underwear anymore. I never thought I would be one of those people who would make undies, but I am now one of them, folks. I’m doing a little pattern redrafting, and hopefully in the next week I’ll be riding a wave of undie-making bliss. Pictures would be a little tmi, but trust me, they’re going to be fabulous.

Truly not appalling at all: The BBC show Yes, Minister is streaming on Netflix, and it’s hilarious. A sampling:

Jim: I’m appalled.
Sir Humphrey: You’re appalled? I’m appalled.
Jim: I just can’t believe it I’m … I’m appalled. What do you make of it Bernard?
Bernard: I’m appalled.
Jim: So am I, appalled.
Sir Humphrey: (after a pause) It’s appalling.

Update: I finished these undies last night and they turned out surprisingly comfy and perfect. Yay!
