new recommendation: GO THERE NOW.

I just discovered this awesome website/magazine. It's called The Riveter Magazine: Riveting Storytelling by Women. It's longform journalism by women. This is awesome. Go there now.

my current companion. ella, the cat.

Ella the Cat's primary expression of affection is punching me with her little paws. She also likes to bite. It's awesome.
