614th Friday Blog Roundup

I tried something new this week, something that promises to change my life.  I baked my challah early. I knew I wouldn’t have time to make the challah for Rosh HaShanah and cook everything else, so I went online to see if other people had solutions.  I found a board of rebbetzins and learned that […]

Team Yes

I read something l loved this week starting with the title: “It’s not your job to tell yourself ‘no’.” Write that above your workspace.  Now. The world is full of no’s.  People are going to say that word to you all the time.  So it’s ridiculous to also stand in line and be one more […]


Thank you for the kind words about work.  I’m not good with change in general, and I’m especially not fond of endings.  There’s nothing after an ending, you know.  It’s like a period at the end of a sentence. I finished The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close, and there was one paragraph I really liked that […]

#Microblog Mondays 109: Goodbyes

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. Today is my last day at job, and I am the last person on the editorial team.  It’s been a little like the Martian for the last few weeks.  I’m just planting potatoes by myself, […]

Different Kind of Smart (Episode #98234)

I’m at the library, and I see a sign for a huge used book sale happening in the basement.  10,000 books!  Most of them only 25 cents! I think I will mosey on down there.  Perhaps the book I’m looking for — an older Curtis Sittenfeld novel — will be in the fiction section. I […]

613th Friday Blog Roundup

Pottermore has finally posted its patronus test, but I haven’t taken it yet.  Part of it is because I want my patronus to be a black cat, so if it’s not a black cat, I’m going to have to do some major mental shifting.  Part of it is because I’m not really in the mood. […]

The World Health Organization, in the year 2009, renamed Schistosomiasis haematobium disease, urinary schistosomiasis, as urogenital schistosomiasis. This study, sought to determine whether urogenital schistosomi...

Why I Really Am With Her

There is a lot I could say on my feelings about Donald Trump, but continuously going that route becomes problematic because… I’m not with Hillary Clinton by default, I’m with her by choice.  I mean, it would be equally rude to go on about all of my ex’s and finally end with, “And that’s why […]

All Internet Content is a Gamble

There was a recent Reply All that covered a number of topics, including a response from a YouTube creator who felt discouraged when she heard on an earlier episode that she needed many more subscribers (like millions more) in order to be noteworthy. The guys mused that with all of the thinking they do about […]

#Microblog Mondays 108: Story Setting

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too. I started reading The Hopefuls by Jennifer Close, mostly because it’s set in DC.  There are very few books that are not genre fiction (and usually legal or political thrillers at that) that are set […]

My New Workspace

I have a new desktop on my computer.  The Wolvog set it up for me, giving it an enticing beach background so I’ll want to show up for work each day.  He placed two layers of passwords on the desktop, so it’s a pain in the ass to get in or out of it.  Which […]
