The Good. The Random. The Fun. v. 16

The Good: 
This book display at the Booksmith made me smile!

The Random:
In the "Not my name: COVID-19 Edition" -- check-in badge from my allergy shots.

The Fun: 
A bunch of my synagogue friends have jokingly formed "olive club" because all but 2 of us love olives. We held a virtual meeting (our first formal one...?) over Passover to keep each other company. Sure enough, we were "zoom hacked" by one of the olive haters in our midst, it was a nice way to spend some time for sure!

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

Fun fact! I packed olives and pickled cucumbers on Bet Hashita one summer when I was a student :)

I’m with the non-olive lovers. Well, I do love black olives but not the green ones...unless they’re in a martini.

Olives are sort of a staple here. And there are certainly worse things to define a group by!

I love olives! And I love that you had an olive lovers video session! That is fantastic.

I love the creative book store display. People still have a way of making us smile. Including your olive zoom-bomber. :)

I love that bookish heart!

And my son would LOVE to be a part of your olive club. And you know what? Count me in too!

That's funny, I love olives and there are either black, green or both kind of olives on my pizzas, lol. Were you really Zoom hacked? Wonder if the OED will add that term.

I am also an olive aficionado! There isn't much I don't like to eat. Stay well!

I was on a Zoom meeting today. People had trouble getting linked up so it took 20 minutes to get started. Then we met for two hours! That gets tiring.

I love that book display! I also love olives but confess to preferring black olives over green ones.

Social zoom meetings are great and an olive club one sounds fun. I'm the only one in my family that likes them--more for me! Great book display find.
