Remember those high school days when abbreviations and acronyms were common enough to compromise every other word of text and instant messages? What a lie, I have only halfway grown out of that tendency, but “ttfn” (ta ta for now!) has somehow faded out of my lexicon. So I’m bringin that one back.

We are pretty sure we got robbed.
Well, that’s not quite right. We have definitely been robbed once before: we returned from a trip once and noticed that all of Ben’s power tools were missing from the garage. At least a few hundred dollars worth of equipment purchased slowly over a long time, all gone. [...]
Last week, I mentioned to Ben: “Remember what we were doing this time last year?” He paused. Then, “Whoa.”

We have a TV hooked up to a PC in our living room, which functions as both our desktop computer and Netflix/Hulu viewing device since we don’t actually have cable. It also plays Spotify nonstop, but only if a screensaver prevents it from pausing every few minutes. That screensaver is a polar [...]

Getting your paperwork turned in, making sure addresses and name changes match up, making sure you research all of California’s insane propositions, finding your polling place, standing in lines, using the weird little ink stamp machine thingie.
