Mastodon friends! Did you see that my library blog has launched? It has received so much more fanfare than I would have expected for a little blog about libraries http://www.jawnoftheread.com/
It even has its own news story https://technical.ly/philly/2018/12/18/free-library-of-philadelphia-54-branches/
Hanging on the side of Lincoln Drive waiting for roadside assistance to come change my tire. I don’t enjoy not being able to quickly exit situations that are potentially dangerous, so I neatly displayed my boxing gloves next to the spare tire compartment & am blasting “Cell Block Tango”. Just to make sure we’re all on the same page 😂
In case you are wondering, I went to the ER for severe pelvic pain. Way worse than my appendicitis from June. I was there for a couple hours before anyone offered me an ibuprofen. (I did not take any before I went to the ER because I have a history of stomach ulcers, and also because I view my own pain as a helpful indicator for medical treatment up to a very high threshold.)
One of the questions was about how they could have improved my ER experience. An excerpt:
"The attending physician could have asked me if I was still in pain, rather than telling me I wasn't. In fact, the attending physician could have asked me a question about my symptoms. Literally any question at all."
People, strategy, web dev, and public health. I get around. She/her
