It’s once again my annual countdown to nothing, and nothing has again arrived.
And I haven’t posted since Easter, despite having a lot of things in the works. What have I been busy with? Mostly running around Disney universes beating up monsters with a giant key. And watching the Nats dance. And tweeting regarding some of it. Let’s just get right to it.

I arrived an hour and a half before first pitch and they were already out of those Ryan Zimmerman Captain America bobbleheads. 😠

Not everyone who sacrifices for this country wears a uniform. Not every threat to this country comes from the outside. Many sacrifice everything to fight the bigotry and injustice that threaten to rot this country from the inside. #MemorialDay

Day 6, “I need… more rage. I need… more hearts.”
Day 10, I don’t always spill food on myself, but when I do, it’s onto clothes that came out of the dryer two hours ago.
Day 13, oh, did you not like my word choice nine years ago?
Day 19, went to the store for: 1) Kingdom Hearts: The Story So Far, for PlayStation 4, 2) Kingdom Hearts 3, for PlayStation 4, 3) a PlayStation 4.
Day 20, WTF is up with this card system?
Day 23, Obi-Sean Kenobi bobblehead
Day 25, where the fuck is my box?!
Day 29, what do you mean stuck in Memphis?!
Day 30, guess I got to go get it, on a Saturday!
The candidates being asked last night what they'll do about Mitch McConnell. Like, I don't know, drop this ill-fated president thing and run for Senate and make him not leader anymore? I'm looking at you, Mr. Necesitamos Incluir Cada Persona!

Day 37, done with this card business, now for the prequel with, uh, wait, isn’t that Roxas?
Day 39, don’t do it, Woody!
Day 42, made chili, because I’m American, Americans make chili.
Day 46, TV is broken, long live the new TV!
"Stupid Americans don't know anything about football…"
I'm sorry, I can't hear you over the sound of WE JUST WON THE WORLD CUP!!!! #USWNT 🇺🇸

Day 60, this game just keeps going and going, doesn’t she get out of the darkness?
Day 61, break from Sora and friends for Crash Bandicoot remake.
Day 62, The graphics are beautiful and the music is sharper. But that log spinning bullshit in Great Gate and Native Fortress is still bullshit.
Day 65, watched the Nats get their asses handed to them by the Dodgers and all I got was this tote bag.
Day 67, not even the garlic festivals are safe.
Day 68, Sora and Riku have their own Pokem- er, I mean, “spirits”.
Do I look like the kind of person who ran around the rabbit barn to each cage saying "hello, bunny!" in a freakishly high pitched voice?

Day 87, drop, drop, drop, drop, drop… looking for Special Portals.
Day 89, the other game still hasn’t ended, she’s still in the darkness.
Day 90, and, at long last… Kingdom Hearts 3
Day 93, John Oliver is Zazu
Day 100, it’s a festival of dead tree sandwiches.
As these 100 Days of Summer draw to a close, I once again ask why am I even still doing this relic of college days half my life ago? Maybe it’s for some connection to my earlier life, that even as things change, certain rituals remain. But there’s no shortage of that. Up next the baseball season will give way to the postseason. Then Halloween and Thanksgiving and Christmas and New Year’s and the Superbowl and Valentine’s Day and Lent and Easter and then I’ll be all “holy shit, how am I 37?!” And then once again it’ll be May 24, to do this again in 2020, for round 20, whatever form the world will be in then. Whatever indeed.
This has been Day 100 of the 100 Days of Summer, Round 19.
