Dear May 2015:
It’s not really like me to say this, but… I can’t say that I’m sad to see you go. There were highlights during your time here, but overall you were unpredictable, difficult, moody, and kind of a jerk (especially for giving us a high of 57° on your last day). But! I’m an eternal optimist, so I acknowledge that by being all of those things, you did provide a bit of clarity in a backassward way. Thank you for that… I guess?
As previously mentioned: Though you rather sucked, you weren’t entirely lacking in sweetness. Check it out.

Cute little mobile food operation in DT Urbana.
The lindens are blooming in C-U.
Nevertheless, I’m pretty pumped for June.
Here’s a micro-LOTSA (Lisa’s Open Tabs, Saved Aggressively):
Provocative headline: “How Michael Pollan, Alice Waters, and Slow Food Theorists Got It All Wrong” (I have the book referenced in this piece and am STOKED to read it)
