This is lovely but I'm commenting specifically on: I made chocolate cupcakes stuffed with chocolate chip cookie dough, which was topped with vanilla icing RECIPIE PLEASE
Mike, you're kind of amazing.
I don't know about hate on a personal level but the best possible thing for this country would be for everyone to realize that the interests of the rich are different from, and often opposed to, their own interests.
Thanks Logan! But actually I'm kind of a jerk.
For me, I'm not critical of rich people because they are rich. I am critical of the bad things people do to get rich. Planet Money had a great podcast a few months ago about how even upstanding business people can end up doing some really bad things.
I guess I take issue with the assumption that Republican economic policies are distinct from (and less harmful than) their social policies. Screwing the poor, over and over, is a social issue. Demonizing labor unions is a social issue. Making life easier for rich people at the expense of the poor (who, not coincidentally, are less white and more female than other economic groups) and the working class is morally wrong, and, I think, not that different from opposing gay and women's rights and hating immigrants. Obviously, not all rich people support these policies. But these young Republicans? Fuck 'em.

But the key question: Did you pay for this substandard care? Because in America, you could have had the exact same experience, and paid out the nose for it. The plural of anecdote is not data.

I just had a great idea for a reality show where Logan has to hitchhike across, I don't know, Asia. Lemme get my agent on the phone...
I like these posts, Amanda. Thanks for sharing. Regarding your goals - they're admirable, but as one of my old managers used to say, they must be SPECIFIC and MEASURABLE (emphasis is his, not mine). Goal #1 is good. But #2? How much more exercise. Maybe something such as Exercise 3 times a week for 30 minutes each. #3 is good. You should keep a list of the purposeful things you did each day so you can look back at month end and say, Wow, I did a lot! #4 - need specifics - e.g. Next time I'm feeling overwhelmed lying in bed, I will throw the covers off, put my feet on the floor and write down the last thing that made me smile (I know, easier said than done). #5 - how much more will you save? Good luck!
