My phone tells me that I climbed 51 flights of stairs today.

But on the plus side, everything I don't plan on tossing from Old Place is now in New Place, and I drove a large van in freaking Brooklyn and didn't damage anything (a true first for me driving rented vehicles in a city!).

My nephew is worth his weight in gold, and I am so glad we get to reconnect like we are.

A good day.

Today was a total waste. Tara was supposed to come at 1. She texted and said she'd be here at 2. Then at 3 I texted and asked where she was. She got back to me at 4 and said she'd be here at 7. It is currently 8 and she's asking me what I want to eat next week, so I assume she's not coming over today. She wants to come tomorrow, which will be fine except Kevin will have to deal with her on his own, and I won't have a cell phone on me to be called home. So... Oh well.

Anyway, I read on the internet, reading some of the more modern research about Khazaria. I think they ignore too many things in trying to say "no it never happened" - ok then explain all the burials with Jewish symbols? And explain why all the names are Jewish names? Sighs. Some people's children. There's just too much evidence that it did happen, even if it is what passes for evidence of stuff that happened over 1000 years ago.

NaNoLanta chat is becoming active. But there is a Sushi and a SushiSandwich and I'm not sure if they're the same person or not.

That's about it for the day. I've mostly been bored and tired. Even when I woke up from my nap I was tired. I've done a lot of wandering from room to room today.

Maple-Pumpkin Vegan Quesadilla

I made this Maple-Pumpkin White Bean Quesadilla for lunch a few weeks ago with some leftover pumpkin I had in the fridge and I still cannot stop thinking about it! These flavors may not seem obvious to traditional savory quesadilla lovers .. I mean, smashed beans, pumpkin and maple? But yes! The savory sweet appeal of this quesadilla is so memorable, cravable and super delicious. Melty vegan cheese mingles with the creamy pumpkin and sweet maple syrup. A few smashed white beans add texture and savory appeal. A few spices add even more flavor, try cayenne for heat or cinnamon for warmth. Make these toasty triangles just once and I am sure you will be dreaming of them again too! UPDATED! Plus, I just added a video that I did with my friend Vince. So fun to share this recipe with him,...

I have been writing this post all week as I took a little break from cooking to care for my healing kitty cat! Hope this post can also help shed some light on kitty (and dog!) teeth / cat oral care for any pet owners out there... Monday: Today I baked a pumpkin pie all day. All day? Yup. I needed a full-day activity and pie baking + video shooting always does that for me. But I wasn't working because #MotivationMonday. I was working because I needed a distraction from feeling so worried for my little Sochi face kitty cat. Today I share Sochi's oral health story and why he landed in surgery ... And if you just scroll through for the random kitty pics, I totally understand too..Read more »

So, it used to be that we hadn’t upgraded to Windows 10 because our IT department hadn’t cleared it as “secure” enough (it’s not that it wasn’t secure, it just hadn’t gone through the security affirmation process). Now apparently it is, since they upgraded me to 10. I’ve never really had 10; I decided not to upgrade my personal laptop, though for a while the laptop I used for travel had it. 

I know this is just me getting older, but I am weirdly suspicious not of Windows 10 as a system but of the Windows 10 aesthetic. Everything is too smooth and square. Things that should be rounded are pointy and things that should be pointy are rounded. Everything is well-animated and in soothing pastel greys. 

I come from an era where computers weren’t even MEANT to be soothing, where it was just accepted that they would challenge you visually as well as implicitly. And I’m not saying we should go back to a Windows 3.0 aesthetic or anything, I don’t want computers to be difficult, I’m just saying. It’s…

It’s quiet. Too quiet.

"The Knowledge That...

...the atoms that comprise life on earth - the atoms that make up the human body, are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements into heavy elements in their core under extreme temperatures and pressures. These stars- the high mass ones among them- went unstable in their later years- they collapsed and then exploded- scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy- guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself. These ingredients become part of gas clouds that condense, collapse, form the next generation of solar systems- stars with orbiting planets. And those planets now have the ingredients for life itself. So that when I look up at the night sky, and I know that yes we are part of this universe, we are in this universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the universe is in us.”

― Neil deGrasse Tyson
