This weekend I had a dream that seems to crop up every move-in day: For some reason I have to return to finish college and have been assigned 😱to room with three 18 year olds. I contemplate with horror my tiny space and their messiness and noise, then blissfully wake up in my very own fastidious middle-aged person house.

One of the most troublesome things about this platform is that people keep starting cool new instances (like before I've even had a chance to really use it! But it would be ridiculous to keep moving.

Okay, I'm trying out Fastmail. But the problem is always how to try out an email account without telling it to too many people. I had a real snafu with Protonmail last year... it got in one friend's address book and stayed after I gave up on it, and I almost missed a party.

I am really bummed out by all the news of Seattle being blanketed by smoke. Even though I've moved back to pollutionland (and have the asthma diagnosis to prove it!) I've apparently been clinging to the idea of the PNW as a clean and safe place I might one day return to.

Back in May I started a batch of aged eggnog for my holiday GlΓΌhwein party. Periodically I catch sight of it in the fridge and get stuck in my head, Γ  la Sisqo: "that nog nog nog nog nog."

It is raining and not hot (but supposed to clear up later) so I'm doing all my usual Sunday things in the wrong order and I'm not sure I like it.

I am a super-nervous biker who often rides early in the am to avoid cars. Today I had to go to a store that doesn't open until 10 and then do my grocery shopping after and it was... fine! Encountered many more cars than usual at 8 but just yielded a lot and I got my thread so I can sew later when it starts raining.

Hello @Gargron, here are my two babycats, Sophronia (Posy) and Alexandrina (Sasha). {This is from a few months ago.}

I got a colonoscopy yesterday (recommended due to family history) and it compared favorably to Emily's South American Food Poisoning Adventure, I'll give it that!

If you are supposed to be doing this, nothing to be afraid of.

Today I'm going to work from home while trying to get a bunch of things done for my house or, as my mother calls it, the money pit.

What were the little kitten squealing noises from downstairs about? I'm always a few moments too late to be sure, but I think it was over ownership of the green puffball.

Today's long run provided lots of opportunity to be passed really closely by cyclists, which annoys me the way that cars passing too close bothers me when I'm biking. I'm used to being smaller than most everyone but the element of speed, or speed differential, makes it really alarming. Can't wait for it to be warm enough to go out when early when it's less crowded.

I started watching the Netflix show "Wild Wild Country" after an acquaintance mentioned it on birdsite. I'm amazed that I've never heard of this community. It's surreal!

Gerne auch auf Deutsch, graag in het Nederlands, j'essaie de me souvenir de la français...
