binkdub Recent news from the U.S. about beginning to loosen the embargo against Cuba is fascinating to me-- I'm very curious what these changes will bring, and how it will impact the Cuban people, both in ways they long for and ways they may not expect.

  •   gummyting It scares me... 34min
  •   minkwilliams Me to @gummyting, I really hope average Cubans benefit from it, I think it needs to be handled carefully. 31min
  •   doll_meat Much agreed @minkwilliams @gummyting, reading everything paying close attention. Also made me wonder what other secret talks are happening that Canadians don't know we're apart of... 4min

binkdub I must say I haven't spent a Saturday evening in church in a long time. Went to a lovely choral concert - "Quite a Queer Christmas," featuring three local LGBT choirs. (All this culture while @minkwilliams carouses with vodka girls.) 😮 #28#notmyactualage #pew#saturdaynightinchurch#choir#ottawa#Christmasconcert#vsco#vscocam#vscofeature#ampt_community#ink361_mobile#shootermag#shootermag_canada 5d

binkdub In Canada poinsettias are potted Christmassy flowers that live indoors. In Cuba, they are shrubs. (IRL it's a giant snowstorm here. I am in denial.) #poinsettia#cuba#havana#seasonalmalcontents#buildingporn#vacationmemories 1w
  •   binkdub Hm interesting. @_aida_ I'm surprised. 1w
  •   binkdub I assume most of our Xmas traditions come from Europe @brooklynmotorino but who knows? 1w
  •   binkdub Poor @lafitte11 did you get this big dump of snow I'm waking up to? Probably 4-5" Happy thoughts... 1w
  •   binkdub Haha me too @juttap while I dropped random things and broke them. 1w
  •   lafitte11 No snow in NYC - some in the country. The city is all sparkly so I'm not so crabby anymore. If you and @juttap lived near-by we could ignore bad weather together with some help: !! 1w
  •   smigulon Not snow? Already? No no no. 1w
  •   juttap Oh yes...!!! We could celebrate @smigulon 's wedding and things... we'd have him ( them ) flown in, of course, then we'd pick @lafitte11 up and plonk ourselves on Binky and Minky...!!! 👬 1w
  •   binkdub I'm all for any friends from afar plonking down to visit anytime! @lafitte11 @juttap @smigulon although I suspect meeting in Cuba would be more fun! 7d

binkdub Some day you will find me
Caught beneath the landslide
In a swan-dive super-snowman in the sky... My brain is weird.

  •   c_grizz I saw the picture. Then I read the lyrics. Then I looked back at the picture and imagined the snowman singing his heart out. 2w
  •   binkdub I like when my audience understands my artistic vision @c_grizz I am gratified. 2w
  •   phraction I see nothing weird about that ;) At least you didn't quote that snowman song from frozen... :) 2w
  •   jesmcdowell Aw! ️ this! 2w
  •   binkdub @phraction (perhaps because I don't have kids?) I am quite removed from Disney pop culture - although I'm aware of the existence of Frozen I am happy to say I don't know any songs! 2w
  •   binkdub Thanks @jesmcdowell I thought he had some personality. 2w
  •   jesmcdowell Yes I love this little guy's attitude. I may be the only other person on the planet that doesn't know songs from Frozen. In fact we got some icy stares from trick or treating princesses when we didn't know which princess they were. 2w

binkdub So @cinderlee tagged me to post #5FakeFactsAboutMe. As you know I don't post selfies so you'll have to settle for these happy meat vendors in Havana.
And taking a cue from @libbybot, one of the following facts is TRUE! You'll have to figure it out.
1. I have a spectacular singing voice.
2. I look terrible in hats.
3. I used to work in a meat packing plant.
4. I excel at complicated mathematical problems, especially those involving spatial relations.
5. I love high pressure situations with multiple demands and lots of people shouting.
This was so much fun I want to tag @minkwilliams @luminarja @brooklynincali @samuelmarc @trinarific to play!!

binkdub I went to a yoga class today. Django did not. He seems, however, to have achieved a similar state of mind with considerably less effort.

binkdub Mexican night was a success--First time making homemade tortillas! Note how the tortilla is maintaining its structural integrity! #mexicannight#taco#tortilla#makesomething#madewithfaded#cooking#yum 3w
  •   binkdub Thanks for putting up with our food pictures @mepiesss it was just like being there, I'm sure! 3w

  •   mepiesss Oh yes minus having to do the dishes 3w
  •   binkdub @mepiesss lol for sure! 3w
  •   peapookachoo It's hard to make anything with integrity these days 3w
  •   binkdub So metaphorical @peapookachoo 3w
  •   boogyoogy you go bink! we tried to make them and they would crack and fall apart... I'm blaming it on our scandinavian genes. 3w
  •   binkdub I have some Scandinavian blood too @boogyoogy but these turned out okay for a first try! 1w

  •   binkdub Buy the ticket take the ride @beijingemily that's the spirit! 3w
  •   binkdub I believe in Alice in Wonderland-type possibilities, if I find a ticket on the ground that says "Admit One" I usually tuck it in my pocket just in case I encounter a situation that requires it later...! @erinleight 3w
  •   erinleight That's an excellent point... I need to find my magical side again 3w
  •   binkdub I'm trying to hang on to mine for sure @erinleight! Have a good day missy. 3w
