Reading: The Lake of Dead Languages by Carol Goodman. Yesterday was library day and Tuesday is Show Us Your Books. Hi-yah!
Requiring: Oxford commas. A local college student contacted me wanting free space here to beef up her portfolio. I said sure...as long as you believe in the Oxford comma. Team Oxford Comma for life.
Needing: To spend as much time outside at lunch as possible when it's sunny. Instant mood improver.
Avoiding: making eye doctor and dentist appointments. No good reason on the former, fear on the latter.
Following: This series from the LA Times editorial board - one two three punch. Part I: Our Dishonest President, Part II: Why trump Lies; Part III: trump's Authoritarian Vision; Part IV: trump's War on Journalism; Part V Conspiracy Theorist in Chief; and Part VI comes out Friday. The lower case Ts are mine, not theirs. Not capitalizing his name, sorry. I don't even like typing it out.
Participating: in democracy, because it is required. I made calls to my Senators this week on Gorsuch not getting a hearing as long as the POTUS and/or his administration are under investigation by the FBI for collusion and treason; attended a municipal meeting in support of ending gerrymandering on Monday; called and faxed my state rep Brendan Boyle and asked him to support SB22 to end gerrymandering in Pennsylvania and support an independent commission to draw up PA's congressional and state legislative district maps; also asked Boyle to not support SB3, a very chilling anti-abortion bill in the PA House right now. Then I contacted my Senators about Gorsuch plagiarizing because WTF. I also use ResistBot like it's my job.
Finishing: My part of the tax info gathering. Every year I'm all I'm going to do this quarterly next year. Newp.
What's up with you?
