...I read all of the long articles I have accumulated in my bookmarks, starting with the Walrus article about the paraplegic (sorry owl_is_lost!) Also in today's docket: episode no. 4 of Top of the Lake. It'll be the perfect way to relax after two consecutive days at the gym.

Right just now I was having late breakfast (coffee and mac and peanut butter) in my kitchen, seated right next to the trash can, when I started smelling this absolutely eye-watering, nose-burning smell. It would come and go every so often, and I dipped my head in the trash can to sniff out the sorce.

Then I realized the smell would come and go when my mother entered and left the kitchen. And now, now I'm not sure what to believe.
