Thank you for everything, Toast and toasties. I've moved around quite a bit and recently found myself -- for the first time -- in a place where it was hard to find my people, the people who get me. But I've found you here and I am so very glad that I did. Go well.

I'm a big fan of Laura Mvula and some of the tracks on her Sing to the Moon album (especially Green Garden) have a fun, upbeat, classy garden party vibe.

That's me and yes, I got it yesterday! Thank you, I love Bosch -- so delightfully weird. I have a note back to you in the works, so keep an eye out :)

It is I, Abigail from Washington state! I'm glad you got the postcard. I totally didn't think about the return address thing! Sorry! I'm @AbsterMB on twitter if you do that?

The Crumpet Shop is delightful and delicious. I structure most of my day trips to Seattle around it.

As another former Belfast resident (and holder of an MA in Irish Studies), I second HGK's recs. And I will add that Dunluce Castle -- on the north coast, just down the road from Giant's Causeway -- is stunning. Don't miss Northern Ireland!

Yes, I tore my ACL playing team handball in PE class in college (because of course I did). I also tore my meniscus in the process. I had a hamstring graft. I had a bad reaction to the anesthesia and was a bit nauseous after the surgery. They gave me oxycontin for the pain, but I only took it once because it totally knocked me out. I found that the pain wasn't that bad and I was able to deal with just ibuprofen. It can be pretty frustrating immediately after the surgery, but you will get through that. I was on crutches for three weeks (I think that was more for the meniscus) and that made me very aware of accessibility issues that I hadn't thought of before. I did my physical therapy religiously and was almost back to a full range of motion by about 6 months. I didn't rush back into my same sports routine, but I did eventually get back into playing rugby and skiing (wearing a brace). It's been 13 years now and the knee is still good. It does take time, but if you're patient and do your physical therapy and exercises, you'll be fine. Good luck!
