Eventually streaming stopped working and now I'm at the reference desk so I don't get to hear John Linnell's interview but it was still a lovely thing!

That's good news indeed! It's so nice when doctors respect your decisions!

I'm so sorry you have to deal with all of this. It sounds like you are doing everything you can - this is a rotten situation. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts.

I went with "It's Good to Be Alive" from Glean, because I think we can all use the reminder.

I second CleverManka's suggestion. May as well be totally honest, right? You have nothing to lose!

Friends, it's my birthday and they are doing a They Might Be Giants marathon on KMSU and they are right now playing my birthday request so honestly I can't complain. This is the happiest I have felt in some time.

I love you all.

I'm struggling with that. Because I'm a librarian, and I work with students, and it's hard to find a balance between "This is hard for me and you're not alone" and "I am here to help you with research or refill the stapler, because life goes on." I worked at Open House this morning and I smiled and made small talk because that is my job. But I was smiling at POC and LGBT people and others for whom this has no doubt been a nightmare of a week, and I don't want to seem like I'm unaware of that. But I can't rend my garments either. It's all very confusing.

She certainly has eyebrows to spare!
