week in review – 1/9/2021


I really need to start pasting links here as I read them to capture any online reading.

Still reading  The 26 Words That Created the Internet and Social Fact.

Started and finished The Dating Plan. A story of longtime friends who become fake fiancés and fall in love. It should be very clear I read romance novels to counter the socio-technical reading I do for research.


Stereolab has become my writing music. Yellowbirds for when I’m feeling sad. And Mamalarky when I’m angsty.


More news than I wanted to. Otherwise I stuck to my rotation of current shows: Great British Baking Show, Deadwood, and old Amazing Race episodes.


Curried Lentils with Spinach (I made this up as I went along)

1/2 yellow onion, diced
1 tbs mince garlic
2 cups cooked brown lentils
1/2 can of Thai coconut milk
1 1/2 tsp yellow curry powder
12 oz of spinach (one of the plastic box containers)
salt and pepper as needed

Sautee the onions and garlic in olive oil until soft. Add lentils, coconut milk, curry powder. Stir until combined. Add spinach. Incorporate until just wilted.

I served it along side saffron rice and 6-minute eggs.
