    Thomas Pynchon and Dave Eggers, for me.

    I loved Cormac McCarthy's The Road (in fact, using it in my thesis) but I have not been able to finish anything else by him.

    I've got a subscription to the medical portion of Angie's List, and I cross reference the docs on there with the list of docs who take my insurance. Not foolproof, but worth a try. Or are you seeing...

    I've just started doing the OCM this weekend, and so far I like it. Obviously too soon to see any change in acne, but I do feel like it has reduced the redness on the spots I do have. I use about 1.5...

    Yeah, the last couple of rides were not so great; not worse than they were before injection, but doing the same things: toe dragging, bogging down, hind end falling out a bit, canter running around...

    Not a lameness or footing issue, but I pulled a horse after an absolutely wretched dressage score. There was no way we were going to be competitive, I was upset and that would have translated to him,...

    Pepsi is bitter to me. They have the contract with my campus so it's all i can get in the machines. But the upside is that, to me, Pepsi is so bad that the diet version can't possibly taste worse, so...

    This is years old, but a funny take on cheese, and explains the concept of raw milk vs. pasteurized milk cheeses well.

    Practice transitions between medium/working walk (can't remember what the tests specify) and free walk. It's a transition just like any other. Going from free walk to medium walk, leg yield her a...

    Yeah, that sounds crazy. Our deadbolt turns easily and you don't have to turn it very far to engage it, so I'm totally sure our dog did it.

    My dogs have actually locked the deadbolt before, by jumping up and scratching at the door when they heard our car. And it was the inside-only security deadbolt with no key to the outside! Luckily,...

    First ride post-injection will be later today. Know it can be 2-4 weeks before improvement is fully realized, so trying not to make my expectations too high.
  13. Nervous and hopeful: SI injection tomorrow (horse, not me)

    We've been having issues for about a year now and I'm so hopeful that the injection tomorrow will be the resolution we need. And I'm nervous because, what if it doesn't?

    Have you read the other two books? They are just as great. I haven't read them in years but remember them very vividly (makes note to buy copies).

    Scott O'Dell has some other great books: I loved...

    As others have said, a lot depends on if you have transportation and are interested in getting out of the city a bit.
