Attempting to create a plan for a Very Large New Project today. It’s more than a little daunting.

I know it’s a trying day, Amtrak. And it’s good to know that my train is delayed. But even better would be some kind of guesstimate. +

Wed Jan 22 22:00:00 +0000 2014

Like “don’t wander too far from the monitor!” Or “may as well go ahead and eat your dinner.”

Ugh, so sorry. Once we got going it took us just under 5 hours. The doors kept freezing shut, which made stops slow & difficult.

Totally! Right from their web profile.

So far as I know. I think they’d have to see your feed to know that you’d silenced RTs.

Thu Jan 23 19:27:18 +0000 2014

Replying to @brettbobley, @wynkenhimself, @jbj, @dancohen and @ayjay

True - though that is overwhelmed for me by abusive RTers that drown my feed.

Fair enough. Was it paired with another perspective? Or was it a session by itself?

In for my annual mammogram today. Last year’s resulted in an ultrasound, needle biopsy, and \(thank god\) an all-clear.

Fri Jan 24 15:19:58 +0000 2014

Today’s ultrasound involved a lot of pictures in a lot of places. Waiting now for the results.

Fri Jan 24 15:20:49 +0000 2014

I’ve done this every year for ten years now, and it doesn’t seem to get easier. But I’m grateful for access to good care.
