The important things first: many of you know canaan . She's superbly cool, talented, and a fantastic human being. She's also in need of some support right now. The good news is that she now knows what illnesses she's fighting; the bad news is that she's fighting those illnesses in the U.S., where single payer health care or even ethical insurance-driven health care are things we can't even begin to hope for. (Yes, she has some insurance coverage; no, not nearly enough.) Here's her GoFundMe page. As she says elsewhere, she knows many of us don't have a lot to give - but if you can't give money, help spread the word, eh?
Less important things: I've returned to exercising every day, and, with the boot off my foot, I've been able to restart one exercise I couldn't do for the summer, because it put too much stress on the foot. Go, me (she says, somewhat exhaustedly, having just completed said exercises. I still hate exercising. The difference now is that I'm doing them. Once I start, I feel like I can't stop until the entire regimen is done. That's a big change for me.)
I'm trying to organize my Thursday and Friday so that I can get stories into the woman I'm reluctantly calling my boss before I'm off for a few days while my brother is here. We'll see how that goes.
Right now, I'm going to have a tiny bit of ice cream, watch Agents of SHIELD, and stumble off to bed.
