  • Hm, maybe I should post more often

    The 2nd-most-recent post on the blog is from February and mentions that I’d gotten my silver Translator badge that week.  I got my gold Translator badge* last week.  Maybe I should post more? Harriet Brown has been writing more about weight and health of late.  The most recent, in Slate, is worth reading (though the comments are… Continue reading

  • I confess – I laughed

    I live in Seattle, which means The Stranger is a local institution. From The Stranger‘s “regrets” of the previous year — a mishmash of errors they made and regret, errors and non-errors they don’t regret, and various other sarcastic local commentary — comes this sarcastic and possibly blasphemous gem: Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior,… Continue reading

  • Ingress

    If you saw my recent tumblr posts you may have thought I’m playing Ingress.  I am. Ingress is many things: an augmented reality game, Google Maps gamified, a walking game, a reason to get outside the house.

  • Saturday Ramblings

    1am is still Saturday if you haven’t gone to bed yet, right? Note to self: The expensive twice-daily asthma med works best if the evening dose is 12 hours after the morning dose, not 18 or 20. You carry it with you. Set an alarm on your phone & use it. Don’t just turn it off. Kath posted… Continue reading
