  • I really like Jack White music. I'm listening to it right now. It boggles my mind that I had such a bad time at his concert in Nashville in November. I hope he comes by DC again, so I can prove it was just a curse of the day. It could be that I just…
  • rgambs said: I smoked a pork loin and then we ended up making a pizza too, so we had BBQ pork sammies, Mac and cheese, roasted beets (ehrmagerd so good) and pizza. Smorg style. One day, one day I'm going to roast vegetables, and learn ho…
  • I just made broccoli soup, and it was good. I made enough to bring into work for the week. I also baked chocolate chip cookies that are flat and crispy. I never bake flat and crispy cookies. This was a new recipe. What is amazing is that I followed…
  • West Wind, 2, by Mary Oliver You are young. So you know everything. You leap into the boat and begin rowing. But, listen to me. Without fanfare, without embarrassment, without any doubt, I talk directly to your soul. Listen to me. Lift …
  • I hope you feel better, brianlux. Those migraines sound painful.
  • Sometimes these app things are intuitive, and sometimes they aren't intuitive. I think I'll understand this one online dating app if I pay a fee. The fee may be worth it as this one app includes more people who live near me.
  • oftenreading said: Guess what?  This evening I fell while bouldering and either badly sprained or maybe broke my left ankle.  Looks like I’m not climbing for a while. Or cycling. Or walking.  Eek! I hope your ankle feels better.
  • I'm trying online dating again. The last time was 12 years ago, and I was really sad nothing came of it. This time the apps make the process easier. I'm curious and cautious. If something good happens I'll be happy, if nothing happens my life won't …
  • njnancy said: My goal is to be kind to myself in the new year but to also push my comfort zone in order to heal and get back into the game of life! I just realized earlier that I am cigarette free for one year and 6 months today. Never thought…
  • I just finished Harry Potter #5 for a book club, and started White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo for a book club.
  • I really like my job. It's data management, and I love it. I really like my co-workers. I'm still learning the ropes, and I'm putting in a lot of weekend and holiday hours to finish projects. I'm making too many mistakes to feel comfortable in my j…
  • I'm sad about it even though I don't have a record player. When I think of vinyl records I think of Pearl Jam.
  • I'm going to see BumbleBee to celebrate the Winter Solstice
  • riotgrl said: Really terrifying to read the neglect and abuse that this girl and her brothers and sister suffered at the hands of their mentally ill Dad and the mom who did little to protect them.  This family was a prepper/survivalist strict…
  • Who Princess said: My latest read.  Excellent writing, very sad story about racism and greed. I want to read this. It's in paperback, yay!
  • The Great Influenza by John M Barry.

  • Are we ready to post our 2019 shape-up goals or is it too early?  I will sign up for a 10K race that is on November 10.  Developing running as my 2019 community building tool is part of my 2019 goal. I hope that I am signed up for at least one runn…
  • Batman never skips leg day. Love this quote, curmudgeoness.
  • One day, one day I'll see a Radiohead concert. Definitely on my bucketlist.
  • Look at the stars shining above glistening cubicles full of workers who choose to be alone in company and ready to succeed at something unknown to them in grade school. There are so many occupations beyond lawyer, doctor, teacher, nurse why weren't …
  • I looked to them for restriction which they handed to me wrapped in gold and I sat down. Then others said I could do anything. A nervous energy I wrapped in wood.
  • Great clouds  shouting whispers falling down flagpoles  warped by banners of parades, funerals, and everyday walking. They see the crosswalk  to turn left and right, they believe they will not  be hit. I LOVE this thread. What fun!
  • I was surprised. Why would he do that? It was in the beginning after the Seattle Stare in front of Margo Price so I was in a bad mood.  I didn't leave so I'm all talk. 
  • I looked forward to Margo Price's set, but the audience only showed enthusiasm if she swore as if swearing is a trend. It reminded me of Seattle concerts which are disappointing in that way. Jack busted the drummer's drums in the first song, and I a…
