I called my partner crying, threw an upside down bin on it, left the house and am just hoping it’s all gone and dealt with when I get back? I’m glad the bin landed in the right spot—I was too scared to get too close and didn’t want my cat to keep... catting at it ):

I’m pretty comfortable speaking truth to power, intervening in messed up situations and making principled (albeit difficult) decisions. But this morning I learned I’m too faint of heart to confront the dead mouse my cat killed last night. 😭

When did people become so cold-hearted? Or do we only care about amber alerts when the child is white, or the abductor is unknown?

(I wish I had something smarter to say—about child abuse, domestic violence, mental health, toxic masculinity, violence against women and children—but actually, I’m just really sad for her and her surviving mother.)

Feeling particularly heavy-hearted today with the death of Riya Rajkumar. Every part of this story is devastating.

My nemesis consistently spells my name “Shelia” even when I start my responses to her with, “It’s Sheila, not Shelia.” Weird power-move, I guess, but small people gotta do what they can.

Today was a weird day to find out that Ryan Adams and Bryan Adams are two different white dudes. 🤷🏾‍♀️

This is not an apology. But, what do you expect from pure fucking evil?

I really appreciate this NYT piece on Lorena Bobbitt. I was too young to understand the complexities of domestic violence, sexual assault, trauma (yet just old enough to be exposed to SNL), and never saw the layers to this incident or its media coverage.

The only thing worse than seeing Toronto people posting pictures of winter is seeing Toronto people posting pictures of themselves far away from winter.

OK, I have to say that I’ve actually been enjoying these work-from-home snow days. I never used to be productive here, but am catching my stride now, and it’s pretty lovely. I do think having a space heater set to 30° blasting on my person helps.

Unrelated: I had a dream last night where two people planned parties in my home and didn’t invite me to either of them.
