Oh, look what day it is…
What is the 100 Days of Summer? I think I last explained like a decade ago so maybe I should again. Every year starting in 2001, I have counted the days from May 24 through August 31. It was back then counting the days to when I’d return to college, being the summer between my sophomore and junior years, as I very much did not want to go home. Eventually that original Day 100 arrived and I was back at school and happy. Same the following year, so I repeated the event with the exact same days even though they didn’t quite correspond. I graduated the following May, so ever since it has been counting down to nothing, but I still do it for some reason. Anyway, here’s what happened.
Day 1, *looks at Round 16 recap which ended with referring to May 24, 2017, and “whatever shape the world is in then”*, *simultaneously bursts out laughing and in tears*
Day 2, finally, reading Game of Thrones!
Day 3, oh, Montana…
Day 4, where has Cards Against Humanity been all my life?!
Day 6, something about a fish store and a Canadian.
Day 7, covfefe.
Day 9, new season of House of Cards, you’ve got nothing on reality!
Day 16, lots going on!
Day 17, ow!
Day 20, why are we being bug bombed?
Day 23, oh, look who came back east.
Day 25, AwesomeCon! Something about a keyblade, a life-size dragon, and a Canadian.
Day 27, ow.
Day 28, ow!
Day 29, owww, what the hell?!
Day 30, ah, I’ve got a pinched nerve, making my arm hurt like hell. :irked:
Day 42, chili and ‘splosions!
Day 49, ice cream!
Day 50, sushi!
Day 53, something about an art museum and a Canadian.
Day 54, I would find a way to get lost on Theodore Roosevelt Island.
Day 66, well, it finally happened.
Day 80, DOGS!
Day 85, the fair! And bacon s’mores on a stick.
Day 88, the fair again! And a Krispy Kreme burger. And another bacon s’mores on a stick.
Day 90, eclipse!
Day 91, oh…
Day 92, 🙁
Day 93, am I getting a cold?
Day 94, yes, this is a cold.
Day 95, I think it’s time to replay Kingdom Hearts! 😀
Day 96, it’s a
Day 97, much needed
Day 98, escape
Day 99, from reality.
Day 100, still playing the game, about done and onto replaying the second one soon, and I picked up some pizza on the way home from work! I didn’t have any space in my room for the pizza box, so I just stacked the pizza slices onto a plate, so really it’s a pile of pizza. Yummy!
So there’s another vague and cryptic (because none of your damn business) recap of these now rather arbitrary days onto which I still assign a very outdated importance because I’m a little too attached to my annual traditions. But, hey, we all have our coping mechanisms. Sometimes everything is going to hell, but you can still think, hey, it’s not so bad, I’m still observing some annual tradition like normal. Speaking of which, we have Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and the new year on the horizon, as we stare down these final four months of 2017.
As these 100 Days of Summer draw to a close, in a year that is just one glitch in the fabric of space-time (shut up, that makes sense) after another, as the personal and the political alike fly off the rails over and over, where next does this ride take us? What a frightening thought.
So ends this round, to return of course for Round 18 on May 24, 2018, whatever form the world and universe is in then. If still remotely recognizable. Probably not. :scared:
This has been Day 100 of the 100 Days of Summer, Round 17.
