Yes, for sure. The first time I had the visual symptoms, I thought I was having a stroke (OK, every time, even though now I know better). It usually passes within the hour for me, hope you feel better!

The fact that everyone seems to have incredibly strong opinions about the CATS trailer means people are endlessly talking/tweeting/commenting about the CATS trailer which means that the marketing people for CATS got it 100% right.

Congratulations! Your "eat whatever you want" long reads essay was one of the most powerful, meaningful, and excellent pieces I've read in recent memory. Loved it so much. More like that, I hope!

Thank you! I'm so glad it's been well-loved. <3 I'd be happy to replace it with a fresher copy if you DM me which school it is...

The world is terrible today but there are bees in my lavender and while there are still bees, there is hope.

It's not discussed enough in writing classes in college, for one, about how much of being a writer is about public appearances and public speaking. It's a weirdly well kept secret, which I make a point of talking about a lot when I'm teaching. Writing is not just writing!

I have to wonder how many Republicans don't read fiction. If they did, surely they would be able to recognize that the bad guy in the story is always the vain, stupid, egotistical, shallow bully.

So many people want this! Let's bring it back. I'm confident it could be built relatively inexpensively as the tech for it already exists.

Twitter, I am in search of a laptop/word processor that has a screen like a Kindle Paperwhite. WHY has this not been invented? I'd invent it myself but I have no idea how. Someone please take this idea and run with it!

This is one of my favourite things on the Internet. And if you, too, like dogs who smile when told they are a good dog, there's one in my new book NAKED MOLE RAT SAVES THE WORLD, coming October 2019! (He's a very good boy.) via

In case any women out there forgot that the single most important aspect of our beings is not our talent, intelligence, kindness, compassion, humour, knowledge, or skills, it is our "attractiveness".

7+8=15; 2+4+(carried)1=7 75 These answers all seem SO complicated! Math doesn't have to be so hard?!?
