Yikes! Creepy crawly nature thing.

Gaining weight won’t make you miserable.
Fear of gaining weight, however, will.

Detroit water bill matching?

Has anyone been matched yet? I don’t know if I did something wrong or if it just takes a while.

This is AWESOME!

From the description:
Welcome to the Flamingo Rampant Book Club! Over the course of a subscription year, we will send you six BRAND NEW books - one every other month, each written specifically for this book club. These books will celebrate the great and wide variety of LGBTQ2S kids, families, and communities. That means when our books feature lesbian mums or gay dads, they get storylines: travels, adventures and mysteries to solve, rather than entire books pointing out that we exist. That means fully half of our books every year will center Black, Latin@, Indigenous, First Nations, Asian/Pacific Islander, Middle Eastern, and mixed-race people and cultures instead of making them minor, one-line characters - and these books will be written by people of color. It means our books will celebrate gender-independent kids and adults as their whole selves, however they identify. It means Flamingo Rampant books will uplift and affirm families that include extended relations or relatives of heart or choice.

Have you ever done that thing where you’re trying to thread a needle, but it’s taking a long time and you finally get the damn thing through the hole and then it slips out again?

It is literally impossible for me to focus on anything whatsoever right now.

Whoo-boy. That moment where I open my email program and take everything I’ve filed in “Vacation Hold” and move it to the inbox? I do not like it. 

I do not like it one little bit.

Here is the link to the City Lab article and the link to the actual website, Turn On Detroit’s Water.
h/t to amomenttothink for retweeting this.

This can’t take the place of activism to address the human rights issues, but it certainly seems like the most direct way to actually help the real human beings who are suffering here.

For someone who has such a hard time keeping my word and following through with my commitments there sure are a lot of things that I do all the time. Like, with astounding regularity and certainty.

• sit in the same chair every night
• order the same thing every visit to any restaurant
• whistle
• forget to move laundry
• resist exercise
• wheedle out of social commitments
• check the disney world website every morning for next year reservation options
• consume things
• whine
• complain
• forget
