Level 2 Emily is So Zen

Level 2 Emily is So Zen

I spent just enough time on Twitter today to learn two things. First, Chuck Grassley told his constituents he was for a $35 insulin cap. After he literally voted it down in the Senate. What a tool. And second, the Inflation Reduction Act does allow Medicare to...

Kiss My Astrocytoma

I had a phone visit with my palliative care PRN this morning. Long story short I'm going to take a short course of prednisone during CZT training to make sure I can do the thing. Because it's only a...

Pointless Ramblings for Sunday, August 14

Don't read too much into the cow. I just like the picture. First of all, I want to say I bought an 18-pack of Fairlife chocolate protein shakes on sale a while ago. I've been having one a day for a...

Hope and First World Despair

Today I'm kind of a mixed bag of hope and first-world despair. My disability check posted this morning. (It was Patreon, a much-needed but also much smaller source of income, that posted on Monday.) For kicks, I decided to check on my closest McDonald's* (the only one...

Whatsoever a Country Soweth

"For whatsoever a country soweth, that shall it also reap." ---Emily Suess, paraphrasing Galations 6:7 and lifting it out of context to make a rhetorical point Last night someone on CounterSocial said we should do our best to write about the FBI raid of Mar-a-Lago...

Unfinished

I woke up to a deposit notification email from my bank this morning and I was all set to celebrate with my favorite breakfast, but the food delivery app said the restaurant was closed. It wasn't the neighborhood McDonald's that was closed, just GrubHub's delivery. But...
