What I’ve Been Up To

Lots of knit­ting. Lots and lots of knit­ting. (If you’re on Rav­el­ry, you can see my fin­ished projects.) My hands ache from the knit­ting, par­tic­u­lar­ly the left because I knit Con­ti­nen­tal. I think I may have to learn to knit Eng­lish just to swap off on occa­sion. We’ve been going out to hear more live […]

Big Update

Well, I owe you all an apol­o­gy. This blog has been aban­doned for four years, and a lot has hap­pened in that time. Katie is mar­ried, about to fin­ish col­lege, and expect­ing her first child! I went back to work in 2013! I work from home, but I work full time doing tech­ni­cal sup­port for Apple, Inc. as […]

Online Job Hunt — Heard of this place?

Yes, yes—I promise this is the last post for now. Prob­a­bly for the week­end, but at least for a few hours! I con­tin­ue to hope to find some kind of work that I can do from home despite my unco­op­er­a­tive body. Of course, most list­ings for “work at home” and “telecom­mute” jobs are com­plete rip-offs. I […]

Review: Women, Work and Autoimmune Disease

I read Women, Work and Autoim­mune Dis­ease by Ros­alind Joffe and Joan Fried­lan­der a few months back, but for some rea­son, my review on Ama­zon took a while to show up, and I did­n’t think to keep a copy for myself. It seems to final­ly be there now, so I’ll put it here, too (slight­ly […]


I’m work­ing on a new pod­cast episode. Real­ly! And I’d like very much to hear from you. Are you work­ing? Have you had to change any­thing about work since devel­op­ing a chron­ic ill­ness? Have any of you gone back to work after tak­ing some time off? Is any­body will­ing to be inter­viewed? Thanks!

Trying to Go Back to Work Again

So this is the first part of what’s become my sor­­ta-week­­ly update.  I went to meet a new team leader for the same com­pa­ny I worked for last fall. I thought they’d out­sourced every­thing to India by now. One of their big clients vetoed that, though, so they kept some sig­nif­i­cant per­cent­age of the work […]

PsiCorp/Insanity/Another School SNAFU

I just got an email from Psi­Corp. I would have thought they would­n’t need such a clum­sy inter­face to com­mu­ni­cate any­thing to me. I am cer­ti­fi­ably insane. I’m apply­ing for an intern­ship job. No, real­ly. And final­ly, SPSU’s finan­cial aid depart­ment seems to be unable to not screw up some­thing in my life for more than […]
