Goals check-in: June

Here's my end-of-the-month wrap-up regarding my 2013 goals:

Happy Pride!

My little sister said it best on Facebook:

Happy Pride, San Francisco!! And a happier Pride to those tying the knot this weekend, next weekend, and forever after!   

(My sweetie and I will be upgrading our domestic partnership to a first-class marriage next Sunday.)

Now off to the Treasury to count some cash donations. Stay hydrated and SPFed, everyone who's out in the crowd!

Too Hot to be Cooking...

...but I seem to be doing so anyway. Most of it after the sun goes down, but the kitchen gets pretty overheated anyway.

The Liebster Award

I was nominated for the Liebster Award by Joshua Brown at Brown's Balanced Life. (Thanks! It's nice to know more about who's reading.)

This "award" (okay, it's more like a chain letter -- but don't be scared off!) says something like, "Hey, I like reading your stuff!" and is an opportunity for new(er) bloggers to introduce themselves to a larger blogosphere. Bloggers love an excuse to talk about themselves!

If you're coming here because you were nominated or tagged by me, welcome! Here are your instructions:
  1. Make a new post about this award in your blog.
  2. Post 11 random facts about yourself.
  3. In your post, answer the questions the nominator has created (below). 
  4. Then choose 3-5 new bloggers (with fewer than 200 followers) to "nominate" and link to them in your post.
  5. Create 11 new questions for the bloggers you nominate to answer.
  6. Go back to their pages and tell them about the award.
  7. (If you'd rather have an "Honorary Award", you don't have to do any of this -- just keep blogging!)

Strides in Snowflaking

As I've sent some extra snowflakes to the Adoption fund recently, it's grown quickly! Today I got an email from CapitalOne360 (formerly ING Direct) to congratulate me on my savings progress:

Dinner Party Question: Broadway Edition

Having just attended a friend's dinner party, I was turning over the old interview question in my head: "If you could invite 5 people, living or dead, to a dinner party (presumably a fabulous one), whom would you choose and why?"
