The perfect fit

Remember back in January when I was on the fence about whether to keep the sous-vide that we received as a very generous Christmas gift? In the end, we came to the conclusion that we should take it back because we just weren’t ready for it. After making that decision, …

A Million Little Things

We opted to watch Friends From College over A Million Little Things. And then, when we were done, we opted to start watching A Million Little Things anyway. It has been said that friendship isn’t one big thing, it’s a million little things. That is certainly true for a group …

Lots of water. Lots of sleep.

Honestly, I’d forgotten how hard it is to do a full clean up of my diet. Twenty-four hours after I started, the foggy, dull ache at the back of my neck from being caffeine free. I was reminded of the tough work ahead by mid-afternoon when I started to feel …

Lent 2019

Privacy Paradox

Have I mentioned how much I hate Facebook? That was rhetorical. I know I have. But with the limited knowledge that I have about privacy manipulation, every encounter makes me more and more furious and I’m at a peak right now. I’m in a position where, unlike on Instagram where …

February in review

First off, big news. My girl Lesley got into the NYC Marathon yesterday which mean *I* got in to go to the NYC Marathon with her. Hooray! And congratulations, Lesley! February seems like it’s been both the longest and the shortest month. It feels like a lot has happened and …
