It just occurred to me that after many years on this planet I still don’t have a favorite combination of pizza toppings. 🍕
This is weird, right? 🤔
What’s your favorite?
Weezer’s Teal Album is the cover album I didn’t know I needed. 🎵 I’ve been listening to it all day!
Book two of 2019: Golden State, by Ben H. Winters. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 📚 Fascinating novel about a near-future society’s attempt to eradicate lying from human nature. A must-read if you are at all concerned by the battle over truth and fiction currently playing out in the world.
Why do I post photos of what I cook? I know that sharing casual food photos has become an “uncool” use of the internet.
I post these photos to remind myself that I rewrote the story I used to believe, the story that I can’t cook. I can: here is the evidence.
The world can be a cold and spiky place. Today I am grateful for coworkers who support and inspire me.
Matthew McConaughey read me a bedtime story. The future is pretty boss. (I’d like Tilda Swinton and Henry Rollins options too, robot overlords.)
The sound I made when I realized I finally made it to the top of the months-long hold queue for this book: eeeeEEEEEEEeeeeee 🥳
Had a marvelous time at the Judge John Hodgman show tonight. And I’m ready to settle arguments with my official challenge coin!
Deconstructed samosas. I kinda liked this vegan dish, but it was bland and the tortillas had a dismaying texture. I used honey to solve both problems. 🍯 🐝 Thanks, bees! I love you!
Looking forward to re-reading one of my favorite books, Helene Wecker’s “The Golem and the Jinni”. 📚
First read of 2019: “Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine” by Gail Honeyman. Quick, compelling read with a satisfying and not saccharine ending. Recommended! 📚
Another tool for the new year: Baron Fig’s Wander Dream Journal. I have been plagued with nightmares most nights for as long as I can remember. I’m aiming for some greater understanding as to why through recording and reviewing them in this notebook.
Today was a calm, joyful, relaxing, and restorative day at home. Naps and long-distance chats and cooking and reading. And presents! I hope you, too, were able to spend the day just as you wanted.
