@anniefdowns I feel like the Relevant podcast guys went extra hard on you this past Tuesday. Maybe it was all good fun, but wanted to tell you I appreciate your slices and your voice on the show! #downwiththeslicesczar

I’ve got some pretty trying life stuff going on. Traditionally, my response has been to turn inward and tell myself that this is what I deserve. I’m a little bit proud of myself for not doing that. It’s a low bar generally, but a high bar for me.

This is very relatable. Negative self-talk can be so difficult to overcome. Have you read any Brene Brown? I recently finished her book Daring Greatly and recommend it.


Finished reading: Artemis by Andy Weir (ISBN 9780553448146)


Review: Artemis
★★★☆☆

This was a decent heist-on-the-moon story, but I didn’t love most of the characters, unfortunately. I appreciate the effort to make the protagonist more diverse — a Muslim woman in her twenties — but she still came across to me as clearly written by a dude. She makes a lot of jokes you would expect from a junior high boy, so she didn’t seem very authentic. For example, describing drinking water while in a space suit:

I turned my head inside the helmet, bit a nipple (try not to get excited), and sucked some water out.

There were a lot of little jokes and commentaries delivered in this awkward, parenthetical way, like she’s abruptly addressing the reader directly. That took me out of the story at times.


Celebrated this cool lady’s birthday tonight and briefly stole her shades. Happy birthday, @starwalker5!

I love this part of the NWS flood warning telling you not to drive through flooded roadways: “Turn around...Don’t drown.”


I was the tits for about 15 minutes tonight at a white elephant gift exchange when I got this amazing ornament. Then someone stole it from me. That’s okay, I know I’m still the tits.

I'm heading to Israel today! It's been far too long since I've traveled internationally (like, the '90s). @KentDobson is leading a tour group and I'm pretty excited, this dang head cold aside.

Good morning from Netanya, Israel on the Mediterranean.

@gRegorLove did you see any of that when you were there?

Thankfully no, but I believe it. There were a lot of people there.
