I had my mammogram and ultrasound today. The lump I found is the same benign cyst they found last year — it just grew.
Buster has to take his liver medication an hour before he eats anything in the morning. So I give him his pill first thing, we go for a walk and I do my morning routine and then I put the food out before I leave for work.
My ancient laptop finally crapped out, so I need to buy a new one. I figured this would be a good weekend with all the sales, but I’m so clueless about this stuff, and I don’t know where to start.
I just found a largish lump in my breast. I’m going to call my doctor tomorrow and see if he can get me in ASAP, but for the time being, I’m freaking out. My mom died of breast cancer 12 years ago.
So I’ve always heard that Kaiser Permanente has abysmal mental health services, but I’ve had such a good experience with everything else that I hoped that was overstated. It wasn’t.
My (~5-year-old) pup Buster has been showing slightly elevated liver values for the last 9 months or so. Medication has helped a little, but hasn’t brought the values back to normal. At the last checkup the vet told me to take him off the flea meds he was on (Trifexus) and check him again in 3 months.
There’s a large Ibizan hound — just past being a puppy, easily 60-70 lbs. and ridiculously tall — who is a regular at the dog park. She and Buster have never been particular friends before, but last night they were having a blast playing chase and wrestling for Buster’s ball while I talked to her owners.

Someone hijacking a post about cults on Lifehacker to air his grievances about how OMG MEAN!!!! the scary Gawker and Jezebel feminists are.
Buster lunged at a cat on our walk this morning, and his leash slipped out of my hand. As soon he realized this, he turned around, trotted back, waited patiently for me to pick up his leash — and then promptly lunged at the cat again.
First the healthy rec: Overnight Oats from Oh She Glows (I’ve been subbing 1/3 cup of unsweetened applesauce for the banana and adding lots more cinnamon)
I recently stopped eating meat and I’m planning to transition to full vegan over the next several months. I’ve been stockpiling and trying out recipes from vegan sites, I bought the Minimalist Baker cookbook, and I’m slowly subbing vegan options for the stuff in my kitchen — Earth Balance instead of butter, almond…
TFW you accidentally follow yourself and then realize there’s no way to unfollow.
Any of you lovely people have any experience with this?
I got Buster’s DNA results! And they’re kind of insane. Here’s his breed breakdown:
I just made the tastiest, easiest stir fry. I marinated chicken breast cubes in Trader Joe’s Island soyaki sauce, then I cooked them with a shit load of garlic and fresh ginger, a bag of frozen stir fry vegetables, fresh orange, yellow and red peppers, and more of the soyaki. SO. GOOD. OMG.
So remember this whole saga —
