So not to sound too hopeful, but things are going well. On Friday I spoke to a Naturopath and she put me on medicinal (vs diet-based) doses of magnesium: something she regularly does for people with headaches. I don't want to assume anythi... Read more
Chronic disease and fevers... how they're different and the same

Last night, Robin Williams apparently killed himself, and my boyfriend was shocked. I mean, sure, the world was shocked, but Ashke didn't think that Mr. Williams was the type: he didn't seem depressed. I explained to him that there wer... Read more
I am not out of shape

I love how my first assumption is always: Wow, I'm outta shape. A couple of weeks ago, I was getting frustrated with biking home from work, because -- instead of getting easier -- it was getting harder. Then I realized that, on my 3-speed ... Read more

There are things I will say -- truthfully -- to other climbers that I would never say -- because they wouldn't be true -- to non-climbers. To climbers, I hate being short. In real life, I mock it gently, and often enjoy it. To climbe... Read more

A good 5k to French, then back to work. Maybe 2k home. Rubber-legs already! In other news, not much is going on. I'm busy, and trying to keep afloat. Realized tha... Read more
Puppies and exercise
Wednesday, March 12, 2014      7 comments

So I may be the only person in existence who gets less exercise now that she has a puppy. To be fair, most of my exercise takes me out of the house and away from him, so it's understandable when I can't do some of it, but between my knee injury... Read more

This is Ghost (and Ashke). Sunday was his first day at home (Ghost, of course). He may be all I talk about for a while! ... Read more

Is this him?

So everyone and their dog knows that I've been canine-crazy for a while, and almost desperate. After all, it is now after Xmas. After 15 years of waiting, it has been "you can have a dog" time for just under a month. And I have no dog. U... Read more

Have you ever wondered how glasses work? I mean, really. I understand the science of refraction (curving glass one way makes things look bigger, curving it another way, focuses further away), but the whole glasses thing? I’m confused. **... Read more
Working through the injury
Wednesday, January 08, 2014      1 comments

So back in November, I started feeling a strange stretching sensation on the inside of my knee. I realized almost immediately that this was problematic, as that area has no muscles, so I shouldn't get the stretching sensation. Woo. Visite... Read more

So a couple of days ago I was working myself up to try the medication provided by my Doc to try to alleviate my headaches. Did it. Didn't work. Oh, it might have worked, had I continued, but ... put it this way: I popped 1/2 of the lo... Read more
No pain, no pain?

It's not often that I'm afraid. I don't talk about it much (unlike my massive over-shares about EVERYTHING ELSE)... because I'm usually somewhat ashamed of my fear. I don't enjoy whining. I don't feel like I have the right to complain abo... Read more
Dog Update
Monday, December 02, 2013      2 comments

So we won't be adopting Mr. Cutter. He might be the most amazing dog, but he's also so bonded to his foster family that he's likely to turn into a failed foster instead (aka, they'll keep him!). I've informed them that playdates must ensue, as... Read more

So the Boy and I drove out to the boonies to meet Cutter. He is... well, this! The Boy and I have been talking about dogs since we started dating. We're both canin... Read more
