I'm 36. I love pizza, coffee, and cruciferous vegetables. I live in Colorado.
argh! why can’t all online stores have their size charts readily available next to the sizes!? When a large can mean anything from an 8 to a 14 (which can be meaningless anyway, but would still give me a better guide than just straight up *guessing*), PLEASE don’t make picking a size require this much effort and gambling.
Target, I should not have to google “Mossimo size chart” to find this information. Jesus wept!
We have let go of something significant, without realising it’s a loss
is exactly what I was trying to say X
Light pollution is one of those things that illustrates the “shifting baseline problem” in environmentalism. People grow up with one level of light pollution and when they become adults they try to get things to go back to that level—not realizing that their parents had even less light pollution, and their parents even less, and so on. And then each generation keeps thinking the baseline is what they grew up with, and doesn’t try to push it beyond what they knew best.
And light pollution is insidious, because we don’t see it as “pollution”. We see light as the thing that keeps us from falling over things in the dark, and if we proposed taking down any lights people would have a conniption over OMG SAFETY AT NIGHT. Nobody ever thinks to create light sources that keep the streets safer but also keep the light from being too intense, or making sure it only shines down and not out or up.
I watched a great PBS POV documentary on this last year; it’s called The City Dark.
It touches on the various losses we experience when we lose the night sky: emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual losses.
I used my little Brookstone back massager thingie on my shoulders and neck (where I carry all my tension), I did some acupressure on sinus pressure points, and I’m going to make some tea. I’m feeling marginally better. I also have a muscle relaxer on standby if I need to take it before bed.
I have stock bubbling on the stove, and I’m going to prep some white beans to soak overnight, because tomorrow I’m going to make this recipe (Brothy, Garlicky Beans), and I can hardly wait. I love beans, I love soup, I love garlic. Yes. Yum.
I’m considering green chile cheese fries for dinner. And watching episodes of The Office, possibly followed by the last few episodes of Game of Thrones season 3.
