|Kiwi (Taken 10.31.2019)|
My little Kiwi is so old I don't even really remember how old she is. I think she was born in the spring of 1998, but it could've been 1999. Those were weird years for me as I had moved to Kensington from Mira Mesa and my college relationship fell apart. Point being she's been in my life for a really, really long time and she's not doing so great these days and we might have to make a decision as to whether she's suffering more than living. She's still getting up and around, but she kinds looks confused whenever she gets off the couch and she may have another UTI, which is treatable, but painfully so for a cat and it's just impossible to know what the right thing to do is. This picture is almost a year old, but she never stays still enough for a good photo, so this is what I've got.
The news out there is still crazy and I just want to bury my head some more, but as always, you should keep up with Heather Cox Richardson's daily posts, don't go down Twitter rabbit holes as I did today, and try to keep yourself from going crazy. Last night I binged "Emily In Paris" on Netflix, which is typical Darren Star deliciousness, and today Nova and I binged "First Day," which is a four episode show on Hulu about a transgender girl going to high school after living her primary years as a boy and the challenges and ultimate acceptance she faces as her peers find out. It's very 'After School Special' but it's really sweet and I felt like it was an important show to watch with Nova.

- This is maybe the 4th time I'm reposting this, but it is still the best explainer I've found. When I'm listening to briefings or City Council or Board of Supervisors meetings and people call with public comment. "If big box stores can be open, why can't my lash bar open?" "If people can protest for BLM, why can't I go to a bar and see a band?" These are hypotheticals but in the vain of the dumb questions people still ask, 7 months+ into the pandemic. So again, here it is:
