I see what you did there, @cedarmilllibrary. 🀣 #bingeboxes #library #diehard

Stay home and read? Yes, please.

Lately I’ve been so busy! I’m recuperating over a three-day weekend. Quick update: 🏒 Crazy-long days at work πŸ‘Ÿ But I got back to the gym πŸ’§ And I’m trying to drink more water πŸ“š Reading “The Eyre Affair” by Jasper Fforde 😺 O, and Lola the cat is my mom’s, not mine

Independence Library, Chicago

While on vacation, I visited the new Independence branch of the Chicago Public Library. I was particularly impressed with the innovative uses of space and light; it provided an open feel while still creating discrete areas for collections and collaboration.

We’ve been trying to find a name for this lovely cat all week. β€œLola” is the front runner. 😺

My kind of birthday cake. πŸŽ‚

It just occurred to me that after many years on this planet I still don’t have a favorite combination of pizza toppings. πŸ•

This is weird, right? πŸ€”

What’s your favorite?

Weezer’s Teal Album is the cover album I didn’t know I needed. 🎡 I’ve been listening to it all day!

Posted @withrepost β€’ Stunning truth from @mattzhaig, as always.

Book two of 2019: Golden State, by Ben H. Winters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ πŸ“š Fascinating novel about a near-future society’s attempt to eradicate lying from human nature. A must-read if you are at all concerned by the battle over truth and fiction currently playing out in the world.

Why do I post photos of what I cook? I know that sharing casual food photos has become an “uncool” use of the internet.

I post these photos to remind myself that I rewrote the story I used to believe, the story that I can’t cook. I can: here is the evidence.

Bibimbap-ish rice with veg and an egg on top. Easy to make!

The world can be a cold and spiky place. Today I am grateful for coworkers who support and inspire me.

Thai steak panang curry. 😍

Matthew McConaughey read me a bedtime story. The future is pretty boss. (I’d like Tilda Swinton and Henry Rollins options too, robot overlords.)

The sound I made when I realized I finally made it to the top of the months-long hold queue for this book: eeeeEEEEEEEeeeeee πŸ₯³

Had a marvelous time at the Judge John Hodgman show tonight. And I’m ready to settle arguments with my official challenge coin!

Scenes from Tolkien’s birthday celebration at Kennedy School. Lord of the Rings boardgaming!

Deconstructed samosas. I kinda liked this vegan dish, but it was bland and the tortillas had a dismaying texture. I used honey to solve both problems. 🍯 🐝 Thanks, bees! I love you!

Some treasures: labradorite, opal, and amethyst, plus a labradorite-infused candle. πŸ’ŽπŸ•―οΈ
