I got a poem accepted in Cobalt!
So I did finally get a FT job. It’s pretty far below where I thought I might be by now, but it’ll work. The commute is awful, though.
This book is great. The introduction covers all the wild plants the authors tried and failed to make palatable, either by boiling, baking, roasting, stewing, steeping, soaking in wood ash, or other methods. And then the authors tell you to try not to eat poison ivy in one chapter. It is really well written and great for casual reading, even if none of the listed plants grow in your backyard, if you have a backyard.
Who wore it better: Pod People
I own this. Or at least, it’s on VHS at my parents’ house, somewhere. So good.
Ranking minority member Vernon Ehlers, from a 2007 Congressional oversight hearing on the Library of Congress:So it is one thing to worry about criminal activity, but there is also a matter of concern about sloppiness. I am not accusing the Library of that, but I certainly accuse a lot of your patrons of that, after having seen some of them.
Ugh, patrons, amirite?
I am researching this project, this company, and other projects this company has worked on, if any. I’m also wondering why I don’t have more project management experience. It seems like it would have happened more often, somehow, at this point.
My hands are so cold. This is the time of year when my hands get cold and stay cold until April or May. I lost one of my mittens so I have to switch the remaining one between my hands periodically. Any little cuts I have on my hands get infected if I’m not careful.
I also had yoga today, and have convinced the bf to go, too. I think he likes it. There’s a point, though, about half-way through the session, when each time everyone stands up and lifts their arms skyward, a huge wave of B.O. manifests itself. BF says it’s not from him, though. So it comes from everyone but him.
How do I get better at telling people what they want to hear? Besides just living life.
I went to a two-hour meeting where I don’t really belong, almost ran out of gas on the way home, and ate some gross, greasy, Korean food (gross because it was so greasy, not because it was Korean).
And now I am exhausted. My threshold for exhaustion lately is short. I blame the meeting more than anything, though.
My cat that I keep traumatizing daily by grabbing and holding still so I can give her eye drops still comes up to me for pats, though, so that’s nice.
Also, I know it’s the fiftieth anniversary of the Kennedy assassination this Friday, so you all will be having your assassination parties or whatever it is you weirdos do, but it’s also my birthday, more importantly. Happy birthday to me! I am old.
