Is this a good place to brag about my kid? Because I’m so proud of him. He’ll be 3 in a couple of weeks. He’s been able to count to 20 for a while. Yesterday afternoon, he counted to thirty. And I asked him if he could count by tens and prompted “10,20...” and he took it the rest of the way to 90. Awesome! I told him g Read more

I really like cooking. But I hate having to clean and order the kitchen after.

I had to go in to the office yesterday. I pay for monthly parking for a lot downtown in the city, with automatic payments scheduled for the 1st of the month. I get to my car after work and there’s a parking ticket! I get home, log into their website to contest the ticket and get proof that I have monthly parking and Read more

I hate messes that I don’t make on purpose, so for me that’s dusting and vacuuming/mopping. I just don’t think it’s fair that dirt should show up whenever it feels like it! Obviously this is a very silly issue to have. But ugh. Why is there dust... and the floors! I swear I vacuum, turn around, and then there’s Read more

The worst chore is dishes, hands down. I try to do the bathroom every week while my spouse vacuums, but neither of us enjoy dishes.

I once had the opportunity to be on the floor with Rep. Tlaib during one of the many votes to impeach that person. It was unplanned and completely surreal. We chatted for awhile about her voting, her stress about raising two Muslim boys in our current environment, and about Omar’s cussing - turns out that while they Read more

I once got a fundraising call from Cori Bush herself and was struck by how palpably compassionate she was. We wound up talking about my sick mother and ostensibly about how things might be different for her if America had universal healthcare but I mostly just felt Bush’s love and concern for me and my family. It Read more

Most Ashkenazi Jews are descended from marriages between Israelites from the Middle East and Italians, in the territory of the Roman Empire before Christianity was adopted as the state religion and Jews were prohibited from marrying Christians. For 1,500 years or so after that, Jews married almost exclusively among Read more

Eyeball! How I have missed you! You asked for advice and I am going to give it to you. Slow down. Don’t get ahead of yourself with planning. I hear you are anxious to do something else with your life and move to another phase of existence, and transform yourself and that takes time. I get that your question about “how Read more

That sounds pretty fun, honestly; the area around Superior is very pretty, from what I’ve seen of it (Edmonton to Ottawa. In January. Took a bloody week and most of it was Ontario. Yes, I am salty). Read more

Look, all I know from being raised Catholic is that every time the priest said, “This is the body of Christ”... he held up a little white cracker. Read more

I just got home from voting. It was fast & easy, all things considered. I’m going to enjoy the brief respite from attack ads. The Senate race here got hella weird thanks to the candidates trying to out “conservative” each other. Read more

Got a tattoo scheduled for September 12th with a follow-up about 3 weeks later. It is a companion piece to my other big thigh tattoo, now both of them will be pretty. This time though, we are splitting it into two sessions; I can’t do another 6 hour one. I sent her a bunch of reference drawings and I can’t wait to see Read more
