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

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!
Book two of 2019: Golden State, by Ben H. Winters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📚 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.

The world can be a cold and spiky place. Today I am grateful for coworkers who support and inspire me.
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 🥳
Had a marvelous time at the Judge John Hodgman show tonight. And I’m ready to settle arguments with my official challenge coin!
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!
