Burnout caused by hormonal contraceptives (j/k)

1 year ago, for day 25 by Leonie Jonk πŸ’˜

An hour ago I read a tiny interview in one of our national newspapers that set my brain all a-buzz (as it often does). In this particular case, it was an interview with Professor of Evolutionary Biology Sarah Hill. She wrote a book about hormonal contraception filled with information about...


Gruber Time

1 year ago, for day 24 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ₯

I subscribe to the Daring Fireball RSS Feed by John Gruber but almost never listen to his Talk Show Podcast. Sometimes I listen to parts, or at least the start. He definitely has interesting guests in fields in which I have an interest (computer science, all things Apple), but there...


Having A Miley Cyrus

1 year ago, for day 22 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ₯

I'm suffering from a minor sinus issue at the moment. Go on try saying "minor sinus" fast and see how you stumble over the syllables. You too may end up saying Miley Cyrus instead, especially if one of your nostrils is blocked because Miley is stuck up there. Meanwhile, enough...


Where Did All The Baskets Go?

1 year ago, for day 21 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ₯

Am I the weird guy who likes to shop with a handbasket knowing that because I walked to the shops what I can carry around the store, is equivalent to what I can carry home? By American standards, the fact that I don't drive a car to the store, and...


Framed 2/2

1 year ago, for day 20 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ₯

In part 1 I discussed my need to get a 300mm matted piece of art framed in the USA which it isn’t a standard US size leading to the need for a custom frame at what I had hoped was a cheap price using a 70% off coupon. How reasonable,...


Framed 1/2

1 year ago, for day 19 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ₯

I don't know what custom framing costs are where you live, but where I am they seem to be absolutely nuts. I couple of months ago I wrote some thoughts on how it seemed that there weren't any real prices for anything anymore, especially in the USA. For our Wedding...


Internal dialogue

1 year ago, for day 19 by Leonie Jonk πŸ’˜

"Told you" "..What?" "I told you so." "..I'm aware.." "I told you that exactly this would happen. I told you that if you would get out of bed and start working on that damned store of yours that you would end up feeling lousy. That you would end up with...


Of Many Things

1 year ago, for day 18 by Yorick Phoenix πŸ₯

I walked > 10,000 steps today. Many view this as an important target while others point out that it is a myth, rather like the 10,000 hours rule. I think any target that gets you walking at a decent pace for at least 30 minutes is a health-benefiting target. I...
