CW: Ranty and sweary I saw some alarming footage of 45 while overseas. It’s not the first incident I’ve noticed. I’ve been able to shrug it off before, but it’s adding up to a potentially horrible situation. I think 45 is unwell. (I’m a doctor, but not the type who can […]
It’s been a long week. I had to turn on the heat to maintain a comfy 65°F in my apartment. It’s rarely necessary to run the heat, but my blood thinned when Mother Nature psyched us out with warm temperatures last week. I’m still pissed off by the Trumpcare proposal. You’d think it was written by […]
My blood pressure has stopped spiking. I look like I mocked Mike Tyson while in arms reach from burst blood vessels in my eye, but it doesn’t hurt. Seeing all the humans in my town and around the world at the Women’s March reminded me we vastly outnumber the troglodytes. My participation was expensive but […]
What? Two in one day? I know. It’s excessive. I’m taking a break from the human race, so this is just notice. Nine days and a wake-up.
It’s supposed to go down to -26°F tonight. That’s actual temp. Then it’s going to warm up next week. We usually have a few nights like this every winter. It’s what I call biting cold. I had to walk to my car in -22°F last winter. It was about 20 yards, and I was near […]
It’s been a cold week, so far. Unfortunately, running outside in winter makes my blood thicken, as I acclimatize. It makes me intolerant to heat above 65° F. Just below that is my comfort zone until it warms up again. It’s making my cat seek warmth, which is adorable. I make her a pup tent […]
Seventy more days. It seems like forever. My body is behaving oddly. I’m cold. I feel like I can’t catch my breath. I can only walk about 5 steps, before I have rest. It’s weird. Mostly because I don’t care, beyond finding it fascinating. Seventy more days.
