The weekend is for reorganizing my kitchen because I spent too long looking at stuff on the Container Store website and now I feel like I could be a better person if my flour was in a see-through storage container instead of a torn bag. The weekend is also for getting overwhelmed by that task and playing video games…
The weekend is for finally getting some alone time after weeks of travel and house guests, which means drinking whiskey in the bath while watching Anthony Bourdain episodes. Also, video games.

The weekend is for binge-watching BoJack Horseman, but since I have a Switch, I can play games while I do it!
Here’s a fun fact about me: I was born without a sense of smell. Here’s a fun fact I learned today: people like to smell their physical video games. Help me square these two facts, readers.

It’s been a hell of a week, readers, but we’ve made it to the weekend. I have very big plans of doing nothing but running in the very nice weather, cooking (hopefully) tasty food out of the host of cookbooks I’ve bought recently, and playing a lot of video games.
The weekend is for finally making that pasta dish you spent all week planning to make but then kept ordering delicious takeout instead. Also, video games.
