Just like that, we’re monsooning here in the Land of AZ. I don’t know what happened, but this time of year arrived quickly. I’m into it. I shouldn’t blink. Summer storms in the desert are magical, and our monsoon seasons seem to be getting shorter and less… just less. It’s been years since I’ve seen dumpsters rolling across the street, I’ll put it that way.
Just as quick, here’s my “favorite little things” list for June. Yes, that June. That weird and wonderful black hole of a month.
1). Hereditary (horror film)
2). Thor: Ragnarok AND Avengers: Infinity War (superhero films)
3). Goliath (Amazon Prime drama series)
Three words about this excellent original Amazon Prime dramatic series: Billy Bob Thornton. Also, William Hurt as Billy Bob’s nemesis. If you love a good legal/suspense drama and you’ve been looking for an excuse to sign up for a Prime free trial, this is it.
4). La Casa de Papel, aka Money Heist (Netflix crime thriller series)
5). Fresh Off the Boat (comedy series)
Blackish being on hiatus had us antsy for a good comedy. We love Ali Wong and knew of her creative involvement with Fresh Off the Boat, so we thought we’d check it out. It’s now our second-favorite comedy series. We watch it on Hulu.
6). Karl the Fog (twitter account)
San Francisco isn’t one of my favorite cities, but I’ve always loved the fog in the Bay Area. It turns out that the fog is witty and he has a name and a Twitter account.
9). Peaches, nectarines, plums.
10). e.l.f. Velvet Touch Eyeshadow Palette (Island Breeze) – CRUELTY FREE AND VEGAN.
I’m enjoying this e.l.f. eyeshadow. You swipe it on with your finger… no brush necessary! It’s more like a cream than a powder, and I love the colors in the Island Breeze version.
That takes care of it for June… sorry to be a little late this time!
