  1. The boppy pillow saved me. Being able to have the baby at the right height for nursing while being able to rest my arms or do something else like hold a book or phone was great.
  2. You can make a lot of money off of primates' need to signal.
  3. I have no idea, but my vote is for a secret befriended crow who brings you shiny gifts.
  4. I may have spoken too soon. Two nights after getting Pfizer, I woke during the night in a sweat, with a weird buzzy feeling like I'd had too much coffee. I felt hot and was sure I had a fever, but I didn't. It was gone by mid-morning.
  5. When we first tried in mid-March the first appointments we could get were in June. When we checked again a couple of weeks later in case of cancellations, there were lots of appointments within 7-10 days. A lot opened up and I assume that had more to do with vaccine availability than site availability. DS16 qualified on 4/15 and we stayed up until midnight and got him an appointment for 4/22.
  6. Quoting myself to I got my Pfizer shot yesterday and my arm and shoulder hurt, but no other symptoms like bleeding gums.
  7. Normally I'd give it one more call. But in trying to navigate this new world of reconnecting when people have moved, lost housing, had to pick up different skills if their jobs were not allowed, etc I would probably try a few times.
  8. I also have a a few autoimmune diseases and anemia. I'll be sure to check my gums as well after tomorrow. It's something I might not have connected otherwise if I saw bleeding gums. I'd probably just wonder if I'd been missing a spot or not flossing well.
  9. It is such a terrible expectation that people with training are allowed to respond on a hair trigger with deadly force but people with no training going about their day are expected to react perfectly to being screamed at.
  10. My parents, who are 80-85, have had both shots in early-mid March and had no symptoms at all, not even soreness. Not that I have anything but an anecdote, but they have been diligent for years in taking fish oil and a Vitamin D supplement. And they upped the Vitamin D this year since they were home so much. So we started up as well. Yesterday DH got his first shot of Pfizer and has had no symptoms at all, so far anyway. I'm on Saturday so we'll see. I have more health problems than he does.
  11. I know this is a serious discussion, but this pun brought a smile to my face.
  12. We're just now diving in, but it's something we're looking at. I first became aware of this situation when I myself went to college and saw bumper stickers that said "<College Name>, the best 6 years of your life!" My parents were not amused. I do think context matters, though. I would be more concerned with a lower 4-year graduation rate at a small private school than I would be with a large commuter campus with lots of working students or students with families. Another metric that seems important is the second year return rate.
  13. I would take a look at Goucher as well. They're a CTCL school. While I don't have any personal experience, my former boss got her math degree there and loved it. They also are known to have an emphasis on global studies/travel abroad.
  14. I'm not watching this situation at all because of some sort of secondary embarrassment. It's like that situation where you don't park correctly and people are waiting but a billion times worse.
  15. I know people (including myself) have used Elemental Scientific for chemistry lab supplies so I wanted to mention I got an email saying they're moving to the calibration business and have an auction of their own lab supplies at https://www.k-bid.com/auction/36995. While I pretty much have what I need, some of it looks pretty tempting because glassware is so expensive.
