Web Miscellany: Compilation #89

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? I attended my aunt's funeral via a YouTube live-stream due to a local breakout of the covid-19 delta variant, and I have such mixed feelings about the experience. It was nice, however, to see visiting family members, though the interactions remained... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Over the last week: enjoyed plenty of rain (and nickle-sized hail), I saved a 3-week old white-winged dove with my partner (shutout to Liberty Wildlife Rescue!), sewed up the cutest little romper for my niece, almost perfected my pho recipe (Vietnamese...

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? It has been raining in Phoenix, which we have needed desperately following a record-dry year.

Hello, friend! What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? Austin Kleon shared in his newsletter yesterday that the year is 52% over. Is the year half-full or half-empty? I feel like I'm feverishly treading water and getting nowhere; yet, on the other, maybe I'm just allocating my time to current... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! Are you having a good day? Awesome. Just so you know, some kids refer to the 90s as the late 1900's. You're welcome. What have you been up to this week? How are you doing? This week, my aunt passed away and my sister came home to visit for the first time since... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! How are you? What have you been up to as of late? A lot has happened since I last checked in and this work-in-progress log-of-life post is now outdated. Oh well! It has been a hectic month with health, work, and family, but I do have good news. Recent testing has evidenced that... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! How are you? How has you week been? We're still in the midst of testing, but it's becoming increasingly clear that I'm dealing with some kind of immune dysfunction, which hopefully means identifying the root cause and resolution. Mast cell activation syndrome (aka overactive histamine response) seems likely. Follow-up cardio lab work shows... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! How are you? How has you week been? I encountered several days of inexplicable insomnia this week, which receded just as quickly as it arose. I was very close to pulling out my old prescription for LDN. After two nights of rest, I'm beginning to feel like myself again. I spoke to my... Continue Reading →

Hello, friend! How are you? How has you week been? Work has been extremely busy, as my department head moved on to a new opportunity. On top of that, I've had a flare up of various allergy and autoimmune symptoms and haven't felt great. However, I had the opportunity to visit my now-vaccinated grandparents for...

Hello my friend! How are you? How has you week been? On Wednesday, my aunt went to the emergency room after a seemingly minor tumble.

Hello dear friend! How are you? How has you week been? My partner's ten-year-old nephew got banned from PlayStation for "erotic or pornographic images," but he claims he just wrote penis a lot... I don't buy it and am dying of curiosity. I've been experience anaphylaxis all week, though I can't pinpoint the cause. My... Continue Reading →

Hello friend! How are you? How has you week been? I re-potted my houseplants and that's really about it, if I'm being honest. Phoenix is dipping into too hot to leave the house temperatures and, once more, I can't stop daydreaming about leaving this hellscape. 2020 was the hottest summer, with a record high number...

Hello dear friend! How are you? How has you week been? My boyfriend has been playing the piano quite a lot this week, and it makes my heart swoon every time I hear a melody from across the house (lately, it has been Scarborough Fair and a tune from the game Final Fantasy). The other... Continue Reading →

Hello dear friend! How are you? How has you week been? For those in the US who are eligible for the stimulus, do you have any exciting plans for the funds?

Hello there! How are you? Can you believe that it has been a year since the pandemic sparked fear and uncertainty across the globe?
