I have spent so much of my time in certain kinds of online spaces (like Mastodon!), and sometimes it's really striking how different my cultural context is from many of my coworkers. For example, yesterday I had to explain to one of my editors that there are some people who are just really into swords.
My resolution last year was to eat more broccoli pasta (one of my favorite dishes). I think I did an okay job, but I also think that I can do better this year. My other resolution this year is to actually eat all the frozen pesto that I made over the summer. Ideally before basil starts coming back into season in late May.
Anyone want a ring? My estranged mother gave it to me, and for various reasons it was easiest to just accept it. I don't want to keep it, but I also don't like things going to waste. So if anyone here wants a ring, let me know and I'll mail it to you. First person to ask for it can have it. I'll even pay postage!
People in publishing love books. I know that seems obvious, but you don't understand the degree.
After spending every day working on books, we decided that a fun social activity would be a Press book club. And it was!
And then today the editor-in-chief gave us holiday gift cards. I was expecting Starbucks, but of course it was actually for the local book store. Because everyone here loves books! (I already know what I'm buying with my card.)
