My mom told me that all the little girls in the musical Annie lost their voices, and if I went around the house singing songs from Annie all day long, I might lose mine too. There’s some truth to the whole “overstraining your voice can damage it” thing, but there I was as an adult watching Life After Tomorrow (the…
That’s why I clarified that we were turning it up by degrees! ;)
I was able to access it without a subscription!
I was a little unsure about the “no warm weather” suggestions I got, too. Everywhere’s warm right now!
I haven’t had huge success with Meetup either! Does your city have an events calendar? That’s where I’ve found out about new events, including recurring activities. I’d also go to the store that’s associated with the thing you like to do: if you want book-related activities, go to the bookstore; if you’re interested…
That’s pretty much what I have to do. Just sleep by itself doesn’t completely refresh me; it’s more like “sleep plus an hour of reading or sitting quietly and thinking.”
I read the Earthsea books when I was 13 or so. Definitely teens and up, maybe tween and up depending on the reader.
I packed a brand-new shower curtain in my suitcase when I moved.
That is a good point! I get super cramped if I have to curl up into a ball while sleeping, though, so I don’t mind my body parts being a little isolated.
These pronouns are not as commonly used as they/them/their/theirs, so don’t feel badly if you haven’t heard of them! Here’s a great overview of these and other gender-neutral pronouns: https://genderneutralpronoun.wordpress.com/
I love using “team,” especially in work contexts.
I’m including flights, taxi/Lyft to flights, etc. in that $800 fee.
That’s a good question.
I love looking at stylists’ Instagrams too! Gives you such a good sense of their style.
All good additions to the list. I had forgotten that not everyone who moves automatically changes their car insurance and their doctor/dentist. Sometimes you just move a short distance away!
That is a good point. I looked at police reports for the neighborhood, but that wasn’t quite the same thing.
I suppose the inverse of that question is “do you leave the radiator heat on so high that I keep my windows open in January?”
This is a very good point! I was sharing the American Cancer Society’s latest recommendations, but as you note there are situations in which mammograms are not always practical or available.
I used to do that! Then Facebook stopped showing me birthday notifications for everybody. (Seriously. I didn’t get a birthday notification for someone who IS a close friend.) I wonder if Facebook didn’t want me to unfriend people...
That is an EXCELLENT question, and one I should add to my list.
