“Anything that’s useful. All that stuff you think you’ll remember but actually you don’t. A working hypothesis you’re currently testing. Or an aspect of yourself or your life that’s currently under investigation.”

Book of Me

I feel better, stand taller, and walk more purposefully all day if I do something active in the morning.

I’m more comfortable being a little bit hungry than a little too full. There is a line, though, between comfortably peckish and FEED ME NOW RIGHT NOW OR I WILL EAT YOUR FINGERS TWO AT A TIME. Blood tests stubbornly show zero glycemic issues, but…we’re all safer if I have a granola bar in my bag.

Dehydration makes me extraordinarily cranky, and the more water I drink, the more water I crave/need.

I probably grind my teeth in my sleep. I might do this less often when I fall asleep on my back.

Certain chords, when sung, will ease most of my stress, make me smile, and give me goosebumps. I don’t know what the chords are…only that they work every time.

I hate it when the air is so hot that it’s impossible to take a breath of cool air, no matter how fast you’re moving or breathing.

After blogging (and editing professionally) for most of the last nine years, I have a harder time with academic writing than I would have expected. Most of what I write for my classes could be shorter, more pointed, and more fun to read, and that bugs the crap out of me.

    My body has come up w/a nifty new symptom to get my attention when I am a little dehydrated/starting to get hypoglycemic:

    a nice tension headache that squeezes slowly & purposefully across my temples & the crown of my head; it is relieved w/in 10 min when I PAY ATTENTION; drink a glass of water & find something to eat!

    Damn you to hell, old carcass – I used to be able to abuse you w/impunity…
