I guess?

Thursday, February 28th, 2019

Trying to look on the bright side of more snow: *I get to wear my boots to work, which is fun and always makes me feel a little like I’m back in elementary school. * * * *Yeah, that’s actually all I can think of right now. Bronze star, tried a little. I’ll work on […]

workaday Wednesday

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019

Sometimes I see familiar cars (okay, license plates) when I’m driving to work, and I think, ‘hey, that’s a car I’ve seen in my workplace parking lot!’ (Very occasionally I actually know whose car it is, even!) And I think, ‘I should tell them I saw them!’ And then I *instantly* think, ‘wait, no, definitely […]

here’s a thing I did not know

Tuesday, February 26th, 2019

For reasons relating to starandrea’s amazing books, I have the (free!) kindle app on my phone. For reasons relating to language learning, I was googling around yesterday for ways to get free children’s books in Spanish (preferably on my phone, since it is marginally more acceptable to be staring at my phone at work than […]

two month update

Monday, February 25th, 2019

Here we are, two months after Christmas, but as we know, holiday decorating is a marathon, not a sprint. (I only took the Christmas lights down from the balcony on Saturday.) Indoors, the final three contenders for ‘last holiday door decoration standing’ are still going strong. 1. The red berry wreath. This one really has […]

it’s time

Sunday, February 24th, 2019

Today’s the day for a task I’ve been putting off for too long, and have now built up in my mind to be akin to some kind of herculean task: cleaning the shower. On a completely unrelated note: can we please just make all clothing tagless? Or make it easier to rip the tags out […]

musical notes

Saturday, February 23rd, 2019

*Youtube music — it’s so fun, yet so inexplicable.  I seem to always be only six degrees of separation away from ‘Shut Up and Dance’ by Walk the Moon.  *I have an email draft that’s just a list of songs I might want to buy someday.  I opened it yesterday and one of the lines […]

it’s Friday!

Time to bring back this gem, because yesterday my boss asked me how to share a google sheet in view only mode. And I gave myself a gold star for not saying, “First you open up google, and then you type ‘how to share a google sheet in view only mode’ into the search bar. […]

on language

Thursday, February 21st, 2019

So starandrea’s adventures with Chinese have inspired me to make an attempt at Spanish. (Quite a few people in my workplace speak Spanish, so it’s not like I can say I’d never use it.) Plus I love games, and learning apps are largely game-ified (the internet tells me this should be spelled ‘gamified,’ but my […]

workaday Wednesday

1 cup of coffee: crying with exhaustion at 8:30 pm 2 cups of coffee: wide awake at 11 pm, wishing I was sleeping Maybe I should try a cup and a half???  

v for victory

Tuesday, February 19th, 2019

The cat walked over the keyboard and typed a v (and didn’t even open itunes to start a movie! clearly they don’t want to distract me from second breakfast). So — v for victory. Here are some things I would like to be victorious about today: *Please oh please let the 30 minute morning meeting […]
