On A Tidy Death
I have this exact same mystery occasional swelling on my clavicle, and have gone through the exact same situation as you where one day it was harder and more painful than it had been before, but fortunately turned out to be nothing. It's terrifying. This was beautifully written and I'm really glad you shared it.

On The Busyness
@Ham Snadwich @Roxanne Rholes Richard Scarry FTW. I'm a caterer and, while it's not "Party Down" levels of exciting, it's funny to see all the different types of people when they're all grouped together in their natural habitats. Last week catered a party for garbage men (at the garbage treatment facility, at that!), a real estate agent function, a wedding where the bride and groom and 90% of the guests were lawyers, a business meeting of government engineers, ect. Life is Busy Town!
@quickdrawkiddo YES YES YES great idea!
On The Busyness
whooboy, SO smug, I think the Sheila Heti "why go out?" thing from last week makes a much nicer argument about social anxiety, but I love reading things like this because my life lately has felt like it's either 1000% too busy or 1000% not busy enough. The problem is me?! Probably.
Also "if your job wasn’t performed by a cat or a boa constrictor in a Richard Scarry book I’m not sure I believe it’s necessary" made me lolol. Richard Scarry is a big presence in my brain.
one of my friends had an idea for a band called "my dad and the dads." I want all of these dads in that band.
@give cheese some pants YES ditto
when my friends got married, they had their ULC officiant (our mutual friend) deem them "you are now husband and wife you may kiss" with the click of a camera- so they have this neat memento of literally the first photograph of them as a married couple. I thought it was very sweet.

So so so much love for this <3 thank you.
