Pain and Suffering

My weekend started off grumpy and ended up in searing pain. Thankfully, the middle wasn’t so bad.

As for the searing pain, let me just say that I’ll never again chop up hot chilies while wearing contacts. The passage of hours and multiple hand washings did not remove all the hot hot hot oils from my hands. Repeatedly sticking my fingers in my eyes in a desperate attempt to remove my contacts was not an experience I ever want to repeat.

Worst Minutes of Every Day

The worst few minutes of every day used to be cleaning out the kitty litter. Ick.

But now, that odious chore has been replaced by one still more odious: the two minutes of brushing my teeth with my new Sonicare toothbrush. Perhaps its due to my 10+ years of experience with migraines, but the vibrations inside my skull are torture. Convicted murders should be required to use this toothbrush once an hour, although I’m sure the ACLU would claim such punishment to be “cruel and unusual.” At least my teeth are really clean.

So now I’ll clean out the kitty litter with the comforting thought that at least I’m not brushing my teeth!

The First

My first post to my blog ought to be something particularly exciting. But alas, it is rather mundane. Let me at least introduce myself:

I am an active writer and lecturer on philosophy, particularly on issues of practical ethics. My major philosophical influences include Ayn Rand, Aristotle, Francis Bacon, John Locke, and John Stuart Mill. I earned my B.A. in philosophy from Washington University in 1997 and will be pursuing graduate study in philosophy this fall. I live on a small farm in Sedalia, Colorado with my husband Paul, as well as two horses, two dogs, and three cats. I can be reached via e-mail to [email protected].
